LevinTV host Mark Levin began his radio show on Tuesday evening with a discussion of the situation in Syria and the Trump administration’s coming response to Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians.

“Our intelligence services, our military, the Arab intelligence services in the area, and the Israelis — they know exactly what took place,” he added.

He also responded to questions about why Assad would choose to gas people as the American commitment to the region wanes. Levin reminded listeners that Assad had not yet taken over the area where he committed the WMD attack.

“Dictators do stupid things,” Levin explained. “That’s why they’re dictators.”

Levin stressed the need to respond, pointing to American inaction during the Holocaust and the Clinton administration’s inaction on Rwanda in the 1990s.

“Is there a reason why we didn’t get involved in bombing trains that were taking people to ovens before World War II?” he asked. “Is there a reason why we didn’t get involved in parts of Africa, in Rwanda when 800,000 people were slaughtered with machetes during the Clinton administration?”

“You can’t get involved in all of those cases, but there are things you can do, short of all-out war, to take a stand for humanity,” he added.
