    And it matters deeply to the credibility and the future interests of the United States of America and our allies. It matters because a lot of other countries, whose policy has challenged these international norms, are watching. They are watching. They want to see whether the United States and our friends mean what we say.
    thats Kerry´s words. Its all face saving now. It must be a military attack because the admin believes that the world believes that O. promised a military attack as a consequence for a regime CW use; and it must be a minimal military attack, because the admin is aware (at least that!) that any military attack at nonoverwhelming scale will only make things worse.

    So, this is Obama´s equivalent to Clinton´s missile attack on Afghanistan. History - isnt that the saying, always happens twice, once as tragedy, then repeated as farce?

    With Clinton it was at least tragedy. This is only farce.
