Syria: Is A Weak Strike Really Better Than None?

This writer in the WaPo thinks so, and though that is certainly open to debate, he does acknowledge this: "The president created this sour choice between an inadequate strike and no strike. It is a choice between a bad option and a less bad option."  Well, DUH, he created this PR mess by basically ad-libbing us into a war and then flailing around about it both at home and abroad, embarrassingly abroad.  

Notice that in the weak strike/no strike/bad choice/worse choice thinking, "a meaningful strike that actually serves a larger strategic purpose" doesn't really enter into the calculus.
