jihadist threats

183 dead in Syria on January 14—Western intelligence meetings with Syria, the moral universe, and Geneva II

183 dead in Syria on January 14

Meanwhile, Western intelligence agencies have met with Syrian officials regarding jihadist threats.

The civilized nations of the world cannot simply resume intelligence cooperation with al-Assad, without surrendering the last shred to any claim to moral authority which their countries may still have.

If we act as if we do not live in a moral universe where human actions have meaning and moral significance, as Barack Obama and other leaders who have followed or acquiesced in his vision of the world have done in Syria, we will create a self-fulfilling prophecy hurtling us all into a moral abyss. The consequencs will be felt in every country, throughout the world. They are already being felt today.
