“Nobody believed Gaddafi would do that. People do believe there is a possible path forward with Syria. So we’re going to continue joining with all of our allies to keep pressing very hard on that.”
Which is a brutal message to Assad: just keep up the slaughter, buddy, we’ve got your back.” And to the Syrian people: “give it up, we’re with your murderers.”
