Syrian Militants Behead Catholic Priest
The Presidents announcement that we will finally get involved, officially, with the Syrian rebels has caused internationalist to cheer. Despite the fact that our attempts to assist second rate cultures achieve a modern democratic society, internationalists can never avoid giving into the siren song of interventionism. While they superficially acknowledge the dangers of backing a rebellion whose rebels are fractious and not all inclined towards western ideals, they ignore the one fundamental truth about rebellions. It usually isn't the most popular, or truest groups that return to power, rather the groups who are most brutal usually end up in charge. Involving ourselves with backward cultures will only bring us misery.
