members of congress have said there's no point in simply doing a pinprick strike in syria. let me make something clear. the united states military doesn't do pinpricks. even a limited strike will send a message to assad that no other nation can deliver. i don't think we should remove another dictator with force. we learned from iraq that doing so makes us responsible for all comes next, but a targeted strike can make assad or any another dictatdictator, think twice before using chemical weapons .
