The Red Line
“We will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people, or the transfer of those weapons to terrorists.”
Failure to heed the warning would result in “consequences”.
What’s going to happen? Bashar al-Bastard has used chemical weapons; the belief held by intelligence agencies in US and Britain gets stronger as evidence is gathered.
Heavily supported by the denial by Syria to allow UN teams to verify, or not. If al-Bastard has nothing to hide, then he should welcome the UN involvement.
POTUS is backpeddling soooo fast.
Another conflict would truly show the financial position of the USA. Literally, it can’t afford another conflict.
And then there are the ramifications of the Russian reaction.
Obama was full of bluster, and al-Bastard has called his bluff.
