(CNN) President Obama has claimed the American response to the Syrian regime’s apparent use of chemical weapons must involve the support of the international community.
“If the U.S. goes in and attacks another country without a U.N. mandate and without clear evidence that can be presented, then there are questions in terms of whether international law supports it, do we have the coalition to make it work and you know those are considerations that we have to take into account.”
As the Obama Administration’s coalition building has crumbled with news that American allies are unwilling to support Obama’s Kinetic Military Action 2.0 one must take a breath and step back and ask themselves, how has Obama’s foreign policy initiatives and previous military campaign in Libya turned out as the White House is making contingency plans to go at it alone in Syria?
- Egypt: Obama’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood has been disastrous failure as evidenced by events on the ground in recent weeks.
Is there any hope that a third time will be a charm and military action in Syria by the Obama Administration, will result in a different outcome than we’ve seen before?
