Sir, I'm of the opinion that God will help those who help themselves. Words alone will not forestall this Hitler of the Middle East from massacring Syrians whose only crime is being Sunni, as opposed to Alawite. I presume God presided approvingly over D-Day . . . do you disagree?

The AP photo showed a Syrian mother holding her wounded son somewhere near the Lebanese border. That's what the caption said. Yet the scene seemed as old as human suffering itself. It was a picture of every stricken mother and child in every burnt-over war zone.

It could have been a contemporary reproduction of Michelangelo's Pieta in St. Peter's Basilica. Whether in stone or flesh, the passion continues. In Syria, it continues every day. Tomorrow there will be another picture, another massacre, another carefully worded UN resolution. And nothing will change. Till it is changed. By main force.

That day is...
