Q: Can hating one person be a form of empathy toward others?


A: Don't let a fog settle on it but



             The United States                    launched strikes


                                                                                            sought to punish


                                              killed more


                                                     the United States in the strikes


                                                             intended to show


                                                                    persistent violations



                                              pulling       troops out


                                                      further attacks with deadly poisons


                                sustain this response



                                                                           manned        targeted


                     associated with


                                                                                  weapons


                                                                          and a nearby command






Targets.


Targets.


Targets.


                                     Residents of Damascus,


                                     woke to                            explosions


                                                                              prayer






                                     surrounded by military          appeared 


                            the first targets


Syrian


American aggression


Syrian


Damascus


Russian


Syria


          a one-night operation






Syria


Russia


Iran


         seven-year-old civil war


Iran


Russia


What kind of a nation


wants to be associated


with the mass murder


judged by the friends they keep




No nation




the United States


In choosing to strike


sought to craft


violation






Early reaction is over


launch airstrikes against


permission




one night of airstrikes


is not a substitute for


a clear, comprehensive


strategy

I'm too lazy to strip out the pasted code from NYT right now, that is making this indent along the left margin, so I just made the point size smaller.

Eh I fixed it, removed the margin-pushing code and restored a legible font size. That was too small to read.
