Sense of Proportion

The Boston Marathon bombers killed 3 people. The police forces of the USA did almost nothing else until the culprits were captured or killed. Ditto in Canada with Luca Magnotta who killed one person. But in Syria, Bashar al-Assad killed and tortured tens of thousands of civilians. Yet nobody even sends him to bed without his supper. Russia is blocking UN (United Nations) intervention. We need rule of law. It should not be a matter of back room deals when we decide when to intervene. It is interesting to note the USA ignored the UN in big way attacking Afghanistan and Iraq illegally but refuses to take out Assad with even a single drone.
