I wasn't aware that most of the people in congress operated on intellectual thought, from what I could see from YouTube lately, there is a lot of peer pressure and little acceptance of critical thinking.
I guess I should be more specific. I think the video probably does show accurate depictions of a chemical attack, which I think did happen.
However, I'm not convinced about the specifics of the attack. I've even heard that it happened because the rebels mishandled chemical weapons of their own. John Kerry says that there is evidence of Syrian missile launches, but I haven't seen any.edit on 8-9-2013 by darkbake because: (no reason given)

This is a terrible way to drum up support. CNN shouldn't have shown this.

I completely agree that most people are desensitize to violence because of the amount with which we are bombarded.
HOWEVER, when it involves children and they constantly shove it down the public's throat (which could be a reason why the have to constantly show it, for increased effect BECAUSE we are so desensitized AND because people these day very quickly forget). A politician can say one thing one day and the complete opposite the next and NO ONE hardly remembers.
People do not take likely to children being killed (especially if they are American children), that's why it's not just a bunch of innocent people were gassed it's "The innocent CHILDREN were gassed. Oh, and by the way, look at them dying. How can you not want to do something?"
That's the deal, desensitization or not, let's show it 24.7 until you're calling for heads.
