The laughter seems to be in reaction to the audience holding their breath to hear whether the democrat in the room will agree that military action
needs to be taken, not about said action itself. It's laughter at the very obvious political minefield the question represents to a sitting
democratic secretary of state shortly before an election.
That said, the issue is no laughing matter, and even though the context of the laughter isn't exactly what I think people are interpreting it to be,
I think it should given a much more solemn and sober tone whenever it's addressed. We are, after all, talking about the deaths of a lot of human
beings if military confrontation ends up being the result of this whole mess.
And before anyone asks, no, I am not defending her or taking a political side or anything else that has been suggested with regard to others who have
made similar comments in this topic. I'm merely expressing my impression of why the laughter happened.
