It’s going from bad to worse in Syria. Yesterday several reports have it that the Assad regime has in fact crossed the line and used chemical weapons on it’s people, children even, which is beyond the pale. So now what? I guess we find out what Obama is made of considering his “line in the sand” statement on more than one occasion:
“I have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game changer.” Obama: “As president of the United States, I don’t bluff.”
To be fair, Obama is not the only world leader to make this declaration, so it will be interesting to see what transpires. Either the civilized world is going to stand up to the Assad regime, and Iran by extension, or not.
Equally troubling is what is going on in Egypt, and reports are that just yesterday Lebanon lobbed more shells into Israel and Netanyahu is not happy. Remember the 2009 Cairo speech Obama delivered? Seems like a million years ago, and don’t you wish we could go back to the days before that speech now? I think it’s become very apparent that the ME policies of the Obama administration have not worked out real well, and this is a poor reflection on Hillary Clinton and may haunt her in 2016 if she chooses to run.
