With the geniuses in Washington, how come no one cam up with an alternate solution to the bombing of Syria? How about boycotting the export of oil and keeping ships from using the Suez Canal, cutting off Syrian income so it won’t have money to pay Russia for arms, food etc.?
That would make Russia angry, but the U.S. is good at aiding destitute nations. It will be Russia’s problem, as the United States finds a way to punish Syria without bullets.
