"John Kerry finally got a clue on Syria last week. Is it too much to hope that the Obama administration might follow suit? For years, the senior senator from Massachusetts has been an advocate of appeasement with Syria. ... But last week, with Syrian tanks shelling residential neighborhoods and the death toll in the government’s savage crackdown on popular protests nearing a thousand, Kerry woke up to reality at last. He conceded that the Syrian dictator 'is obviously not a reformer now' and that continued engagement with the bloody regime in Damascus is pointless." (05/15/11)
