Deja Vu All Over Again

"...the strange feeling that you are experiencing something exactly as it happened before."
WASHINGTON, Aug 28 2013 (IPS) - In an echo of the tactics they used to promote U.S. intervention in the Balkans, Iraq and Libya, a familiar clutch of neo-conservatives published a letter Tuesday urging President Barack Obama to go far beyond limited military strikes against Syria in retaliation for its government’s alleged use last week of chemical weapons that reportedly killed hundreds of people.
Signed by 66 former government officials and “foreign policy experts” – almost all of them strongly pro-Israel neo-conservatives – the letter, which was released by the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI), called for Washington “and other willing nations [to] consider direct military strikes against the pillars of the Assad regime” as part of more ambitious strategy to support “moderate” Syrian rebels and dissuade Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
Yes, the very same people who should have been tossed into the dustbin of history for their shameless role in the tragic "intervention" in Iraq have seen fit to put pressure on President Obama to step into whatever the hell's going on in Syria.  A "ruthless dictator used chemical weapons on his own people! "{gasp...gack...vapors!!}

We've heard it all before. Now more people will die.
