Quote
I am no longer an artist, interested and curious. I am a messenger who will bring back word from the men who are fighting to those who want the war to go on forever. Feeble, inarticulate will be my message, but it will have a bitter truth, and may it burn their lousy souls.

— British propaganda artist Paul Nash, 1917

Report: US may be forced to 'militarize' Syria crisis

The U.S. does not want to “militarize the situation” in Syria, but fears this may be unavoidable, according to a report citing an un-named State Department official.

The White House is seeking a diplomatic solution but the debate in Washington has shifted toward more robust action following the deadlock over a United Nations resolution.
