We Have To Go To War With Syria For The Same Reason We Went After Hitler… Wait, What!?

September 9, 2013 by  

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV) made his case for dragging the United States into war, even another World War, during an impassioned floor speech Monday. To paraphrase his speech: Hey, some folks didn’t want to go after Hitler, either. But they were wrong. Besides, we’re the greatest country ever.

Here, in part, is what Reid really said:

Look prior to World War I … prior to World War II. Some prefer isolation. That’s the easy thing to do. But sitting on the sideline isn’t what made the United States of America the greatest nation in the world in years past and, yes, today. And sitting on the sidelines won’t make us a better nation tomorrow.

As America faces yet another crisis of conscience, another opportunity to intervene on behalf of humanity, my mind returns to that turning point in the world’s history when the United States faced down an evil regime that murdered millions of innocent citizens. Millions and millions of civilians and prisoners of war were murdered by poison gas in Nazi death camps. Treblinka, Auschwitz. Never again, swore the world. Never again would we permit the use of these poisonous weapons of war.

We can probably just leave it to the readers from here. Please let us know how many things you can find wrong with Reid’s statement in the comments below.
