Obama won’t act upon his own red line 

Its at moments like these when we are painfully reminded just how un-Reaganlike Obama truly is. A little over a year ago, in August of 2012, Obama held a press conference and, trying hard to be pretend to be the president, said the following regarding the future use of chemical weapons in Syria:

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should heed U.S. warnings to neither use nor move chemical or biological weapons, lest he risk crossing a “red line” and provoke a U.S. military response, President Barack Obama said Monday. “We cannot have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people,” Obama told reporters at the White House. “We have been very clear to the Assad regime — but also to other players on the ground — that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized.” – CNN, August 21, 2012

So flash-forward a year later and Assad has now used chemical weapons on his own people not once but twice. Obama’s red meat reaction to his own red line? He is backing away faster than a liberal at a revival meeting. Here is today’s story on Obama’s cowardly, crawling away from his own, self-imposed and imaginary ‘red lie’…

From Reuters – The United States would only take action on Syria in concert with the international community and with legal justification in response to the alleged chemical weapons attacks in Damascus, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said on Monday.

Hagel, speaking on a trip to Indonesia, declined to discuss U.S. military options under consideration by the White House, or to say whether he thought a military response was likely.

“The United States is looking at all options regarding the situation in Syria. We’re working with our allies and the international community,” Hagel told a news conference in Jakarta.

“We are analyzing the intelligence. And we will get the facts. And if there is any action taken, it will be concert with the international community and within the framework of legal justification.”

Hagel planned to speak with his British and French counterparts about the situation in Syria, a senior U.S. official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The timing of those upcoming calls was unclear, the official said.

The official said there was growing confidence that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons against civilians in suburbs of Damascus last week and admonished the delays in allowing U.N. inspectors access to the sites.

“Our confidence is growing that this was, in fact, an episode involving the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime,” the official said. source – Reuters
