We all read the news today…

There was something surreal about the President announcing he had ordered missile strikes on a foreign country because he had seen images of children killed by sarin gas.

Not to diminish the horror of any innocent death but honestly, what does it say about us — our leaders, our politicians, our columnists and all the rest as well — that one child dying in a gas attack can prompt a heavy missile attack on a foreign country, while another child drowning while trying to escape the same madness which provoked the missile attack does not prompt a humanitarian reassessment of our immigration policies?
