Allahpundit puts this in the proper context:
By “implodes,” he means a situation where Assad loses control of his WMD and we need to go in and grab them before some fanatic native outfit grabs them first. Which is funny because, right offhand, I can’t think of anything that’s more likely to increase the risk of that happening than bombing the hell out of Syrian military units who are in charge of those weapons.
What’s even funnier (not really) is that rebels already have the WMDs. So what happens is we bomb the place and then declare the rebels have gotten their hands on chemical weapons, then declare we need to put boots on the ground to finish…Assad so we can…oh crap, I’m lost already. I’m not sure how they can argue going after Assad in that context. But I’m sure they’ll think of a way.
