  •  I doubt that Assad cared about any red line. If (0+ / 0-)

    he used chemical weapons, it was because he (or whoever really makes such decisions) thought that the tactical situation required it.
       But given the makeup of the area where the weapons were supposedly used, and the nature of the fighting there (rebels massacring 500 plus people,) I think that its equally likely that the rebels were responsible.
      Assad is in a fight for his life. I doubt that he hangs on Obama's every word.
       Likewise, if the US knocks out his air force, which seems to be the plan, what does he have left but chemical weapons.
