I thought the president established a red line as a warning to Mr. Assad; that if Assad used chemical warfare, i.e. poison gas, against the rebels in Syria, that would result in dire consequences. Now it has been reported that Assad’s forces have used sarin gas against the rebels. Mr. Obama has responded that he needs conclusive proof. So I guess that line was not red, but another color lower in the spectrum.
To borrow a term used by the Brits, it appears our president has “gone wobbly.”
