Parliament has spoken, the Prime Minister was defeated in the vote late last night.

A nuclear error, but you have no fear--'cause London is drowning, and you live by the river.

I think a lot of people do. Not all of them realize it.

And as always, we must think long and hard about the long-term implications of taking sides in another nation's ethno-religious civil conflict, before committing to a course of action.

 Help me out with this. This is a quote from Nancy Pelosi: 

"It is clear that the American people are weary of war. However, Assad gassing his own people is an issue of our national security, regional stability and global security." 

I'm not so much saying that I agree or disagree with her (I think I disagree with her), but I don't fully understand the logic. How does a civil war in another country become an issue of our national security? 

Whether you agree or disagree, can you help me understand what she's getting at here? Because all I can figure is yeah, it's horrible that he's gassing his own people. Truly sickening. I understand the argument of helping put a stop to that on moral grounds. I do not understand the argument of helping put a stop to that on "it will boost our national security" grounds.

I think she's saying that if we lose the oil, we'll all go insane and murder one another.

And how is death by gas any worse than old-fashioned bullets, bombs or knives?  The death toll in the Congo is now running at around 4 million lives, civilian and combatant alike.  Where's the urgency to get involved there?

Ah, but then, you have to look at who makes up Pelosi's constituents.  Fairly self-explanatory, that one...

 Michele Bachmann just made a similar statement about how he hasn't demonstrated a national security interest to justify our intervening. 

Never thought I'd see the day I was agreeing with that nutbag, but clearly these are strange times.

Is there gas in the Congo?

 There is Um Bongo.  It's much more valuable.  Google it.

We were forever being told that the rebels were bolstered by Islamic nutbags, therefore isn't the best thing for our security to let Assad kill them?
