House Democrat not convinced to authorize military action in Syria

Democratic Rep. David Cicilline is still not convinced that military action in Syria is in the best move forward for the United States. On Weekends with Alex Witt, he said, “I’m still not persuaded yet that a military action, a military strike is in the best interests long-term of the United States and will advance our national security.”

Cicilline, a Rhode Island Democrat, also questioned the measures short of a military strike that the United States is currently taking to condemn and isolate Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime. He encouraged drumming up support to build an international coalition to admonish the clear human rights violations being perpetuated under Assad’s leadership.

“If this is an important principle of international law which I believe it is, then there ought to be a broad coalition of people all over the world that are willing to stand with the United States and protect this international interest,” he said.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
