Assume for a moment that President Obama actually has a strategy in Syria. He had wanted to give the al Qaeda-affiliated rebels weapons but that really didn’t happen. Now as reports of a massive chemical weapons attack pour in, it looks like Syria could become even more of a problem.
From The Daily Beast:
Reports of a massive chemical weapons attack in a Damascus suburb Wednesday not only escalated the humanitarian tragedy in Syria but also threatened to scuttle President Obama’s hopes of pushing the Syrian opposition into political negotiations with the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the Assad regime had not agreed to grant U.N. investigators access to the site in the city of Ghouta, where Syrian rebels say more than 1,000 civilians are dead after a gas attack widely suspected to be the largest use of chemical weapons since the 2 1/2-year Syrian civil war began. The investigators, who are less than a 30-minute drive from the site, are inside Syria to investigate previous uses of chemical weapons in March that the U.S. intelligence community concluded were perpetrated by the Syrian military against its own people.
Obama drew a red line, saying that if Syrian President Bashar al Assad continued to use chemical weapons the U.S. would intervene in the ongoing civil war. Now, all Obama wants to do is hold a U.N. conference.
