THE GREAT NAMAZU ONCE AGAIN ADDRESSES ALL HUMANITY ( "BIPEDS" AS HE IS WONT TO CALL US) ON THE SYRIAN QUESTION.UPDATE:9/12/2014 Her is another look at the thinking of the Great Catfish a year ago as the situation in Syria unfolded. One has to wonder if we would be looking at the ISIS sitting in Syria and Iraq if the fish wisdom had been followed.
Editor's Note; If You think This is an idea worth discussing please pass it on, especially to your legislators, the White House, members of Parliament, and the UN just send your thoughts and forward this link which will take your readers directly to this article :

THERE IS A THIRD WAY BETWEEN ARMED RETALIATION FOR MASS MURDER BY WMD AND "DOING NOTHING". THE BIPEDS HAVE DONE IT BEFORE, TIME TO DUST OFF A HISTORY LESSON. THERE IS A NON SHOOTING ROUTE OUT OTHER THAN INACTION.
In a nutshell here is the Syrian Conundrum. The Syrian government, no doubt with the agreement if not on the orders of Mr. Assad, used poison gas to kill approximately 1400 mostly non- combatants including large numbers of women and children, indeed women with children. There are long standing multi -national treaties called "conventions" against a first use of chemical weapons one of the several weapons in a class collectively known as "weapons of mass destruction", or "WMDs". France, Turkey, and the United States feel strongly that any such use of WMDs MUST BE SEVERELY PUNISHED IMMEDIATELY. Really the rest of the world pretty much feels that way but to punish the Assad regime by a military attack on his weapons facilities, headquarters, command and control elements absolutely gives an advantage to his opposition who happens to be heavily laced with the same people who flew airliners full of people into the World Trade Center towers at the start of this century. Not only that, but the people who brought us 9/11 are busily attempting to get hold of nuclear explosive devices with every intention of using them as soon as they possibly can. Why would you want to hand these people an advantage?
By immediately putting things in terms of a military strike while knowing full well who will gain an advantage, from it the Presidents of France and the United States created a crisis of deliberation in the British Parliament in the form of a go/ no go issue, pretty much closing debate on alternative actions. So the Brits, America's closest ally opted out. President Obama blinked and decided to send the issue to the Congress. The Congress of the United States is composed of Obama worshiping Democrats and Obama hating Republicans and discussion and debate are not what they are known for. They too are going into the discussion on a military action or do nothing basis. Sarah Palin , arch Republican has noted that since both sides are killing each other while shouting "Allah Akbar", we should let Allah sort them out, which is a witty way of saying do nothing. Bipeds your government is too important, and this issue is too important to leave it to the idiots in Washington. Both sides are correct. Use of WMDs must be maximally and immediately punished, and using military force in this instance to do the punishing will result in advantage to even more ruthless people willing to use even worse WMDs at their first opportunity. So lets talk about what can be done to punish the people responsible without getting into their uncivil war.
Why a former law professor now resident in the White House didn't seize on this idea first we'll never know. Folks it's called an INDICTMENT, Lets take all that "intelligence" that the United States has, whatever the UN gathered, and whatever any other nation is holding to the World Court and ask for an immediate indictment and arrest warrant for Assad. No, no one is going to serve it right now but he is headed out of power and hiding won't be that easy. The court then opens up an investigation and starts trying to find out who the senior advisers and decision makers were who were in on the decision, then hands out more indictments and arrests warrants. Those who were willing to send in the military could save a bundle and still take the lead in all this by putting a price on the head of anyone indited. Pointless gesture you say? Think again.
The moment a multi- national group who are not belligerents in your conflict file for an indictment for crimes against humanity against a head of state and his cohorts any semblance that these people had a defense for the act shreds. It is a moment of acute embarrassment but that's not all. No matter how well insulated an individual under such indictment is against immediate arrest or service of process at that moment, he becomes a fugitive from international justice. He is just about assured of becoming a losing defendant if ever tried by the people who displace him as was Saddam Hussein. Did Saddam not hang by the neck until dead along with a number of his cohorts? Did the world not pursue the Nazi war criminals even to this day? To use what we know from our intelligence services for an indictment, and put elements of that service to work for the World Court puts the perpetrators on notice that their day of reckoning is drawing near. The World community sends a clear message to the commanders in chief around the world, that a first use of WMDs puts the hounds on your trail and noose around your neck, unless you want to surrender to the World Court where you are more likely to draw life in prison.
A multi- national criminal indictment and an internationally funded court investigation, manhunt, with capture rewards is a strong statement and deterrent against the use of WMD's. It also sets no precedent that the military can't be used in the future in other cases involving such WMD use. It displays the international community's resolve to criminalize such behavior in all cases and by any means possible. This works and under the present circumstances is the only thing that can work. Don't assume that the politicians will figure this out. Citizens make a noise! Tell them you want an indictment/manhunt with rewards package now! Remember I'm 3,000 years old and live at the bottom of the Sea. I take a long view and tend to see things in depth. Do you really think those self aggrandizing 40 to 65 year old bipeds in Congress, the White House, or Parliament are going to come up with a better idea? Somebody go ask Queen Elizabeth what she thinks of my idea. She has seen more world history unfold than any English speaking politician holding office anywhere. If you can't take a suggestion from a catfish, go put my proposal to the Queen, I bet the old girl agrees most strongly with me.
