Hats off to the Second City Network for the brilliant video above.

The funny thing about the great Syria intervention saga has been the number of astoundingly smug and normally dovish left-liberal types who have been cheering on a US-led strike. Those who would usually be first to cry ‘western imperialism’ have in this instance been desperate for the West to flex its military muscle.

Is it because of chemical weapons? Possibly, but I doubt they’d feel the same way if a Republican was calling for action. ‘Because Obama’ seems as good a reason as any.
