  •  Obama could have just as easily said he was (0+ / 0-)

    troubled by the slaughter of Syrians and that while WMD was a red line, at some point the continuing massacres might provoke an international military response. He did not.

    He worded his response to say only chemical weapons are a redline.

    Its not that I have been ignoring the comments above. I just haven't seen any worth responding to.

    Anybody that thinks that Obama's comments today aren't saying that the US won't intervene militarily as long as Assad keeps doing what he is doing is blind.

    His comments today will boast the moral of Assad regime while telling the FSA  and the Syrians being murdered from the air that no anti-aircraft weapons will be forthcoming as long as Assad is only dropping cluster bombs and such.

    The Russia Today inspired view that " Obama threatens to attack Syria" is clearly a lie. He didn't even say the US would attack even if they did use chemical weapons.

    If the Assad regime is defeated, then clearly Syrian WMD will fall into other hands. What's Obama's view on that?
