In December 2012 Barack Obama promised “there will be consequences” if the regime of Bashar Al-Assad in Syria used chemical weapons. “The world is watching.” But that was before reformer Assad used chemical weapons on his own people. The latest line at the White House is, “If he drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?” The New York Times reported: Mr. Obama’s advisers also raised legal issues. “How can we attack another country unless it’s in self-defense and with no Security Council resolution?” another official said, referring to United Nations authorization. “If he drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?” But they concluded that drawing a firm line might deter Mr. Assad.
