Gassing is horror... It must never be countenanced.  On the other hand, are there, in the long run, more effective ways of handling this than cruise missiles?  The US should act, but how?  This video speaks to alternatives...from MoveON.

I know it's a reach, but it is peripheral to the question of how the US has approached its relations with Latin America including very especially Colombia.  What would Teddy Roosevelt have done to seize Panama if he had cruise missiles?  Well, he had the equivalent... the gunboats of the US Navy and he used them against Colombia to seize Panama.

A MUST READ...  Overthrow, by Stephen Kinzer.  America's Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq.
