Secretary of State John Kerry announced today that the United States will provide limited new assistance to the Syrian rebels by sending in military rations and medical supplies. The offer is well short of the armaments the rebels want.
I don’t know, this is almost a kind of joke. I really don’t understand incrementalism. If we are going to support these people – after 70,000 deaths – why not be serious about it?
So we’re sending them rations to eat while they get shot at and medical supplies to soothe their wounds when they get hit. Makes total sense.
