“What is Aleppo?”

September 9, 2016

What is Aleppo?

Hint: It’s not the sixth Marx brother who decided to forego show business for a career in land development.

What is Aleppo?

And I guess one need look no further than Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson to know why no one takes third-party presidential candidates seriously. Or maybe I’m just being overly harsh and the reality lies somewhere between Gary Anderson is a person who is woefully unprepared, unqualified and unable to take on the responsibilities of president on the one end and humanitarian crises aren’t very high on the Libertarian party platform on the other. I’d hope it’s closer to the first. Although for all I know, maybe Libertarian non-interventionism extends to more than just war and includes things like genocide and human rights and the deaths of thousands of children?

So should every person be expected to know every city in Syria? No. Should a person running for president of the United States know about the Syrian civil war and where it’s being fought and what it’s doing to the world, not to mention methods in which that war is being fought and it’s impact on civilians and the world? Call me old-fashioned, but I kinda think, yeah, they should.
