The Terror Cartel Strikes in Idaho

•, William Norman Grigg
 Under the rhetorical conventions governing the cynical profession called "diplomacy," Kerry wasn’t allowed to make his threat explicit. Fortunately, Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker labors under no such restrictions.

"I do think we’ll be arming the opposition shortly," Corker told CBS News on May 7, referring to a measure that will be put before the Senate next week.

While alluding to the fact that Washington is already covertly arming the Syrian insurgents, Corker made it clear that the military aid wouldn’t be restricted to rebel groups that have already been housebroken, explaining that "we have to change the equation" because "the moderate opposition groups we support are not as good at fighting" as the more ruthless factions that specialize in terrorizing non-combatants, executing prisoners, and whose leaders mutilate and cannibalize the dead bodies of their enemies.
