President Barack Obama said Wednesday the “red line” he previously spoke of regarding the use of chemical weapons in Syria wasn’t his own, but the world’s. “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line. The world set a red line when governments representing 98%” of the world’s population “passed a treaty forbidding (chemical weapons) use, even when countries are engaged in war,” Obama said in Sweden.
Then why isn’t the world talking about engaging in military action, Mr. President? Why is it only us?
Hey, but don’t worry. The language that has been proposed says Obama can use whatever force he deems “necessary and appropriate” — but it also has to be “limited and tailored.” Whatever that means.
You trust him, right?
