    Syrian use of chemicals weapons will be a really really really naughty thing and will force the US to scold them and publicly denounce that action...
    Oh, no...Obama just said that he WILL act...right after he has SOLID evidence that Syria popped gas on someone and we all know that there will never be enough "solid" evidence...lol

    No better evidence than for what we did in Libya. The difference, Obomba followed what the other UN nations agreed on. He is a follower, not a leader.

    A real leader simply follows his gut and invades countries all by themselves, amIright?

    It's easy to be tough with other peoples lives. Just like it's easy to be generous with other peoples money.

    He doesn't want to rush in based on faulty (faked) information. I reckon he doesn't want to go at all, but right now we have some evidence that Sarin has probably been used, but we don't know who did it. If it was used, it was probably Assad, but it could have been the rebels. Either way, this increases the pressure at the UN on Russia and China, Assad's main support.

    and what's the POTUS saying about this development?
    Saying that confirmation was still needed to provide conclusive proof, Obama stopped short of declaring that Assad had crossed a "red line" he had warned earlier would unleash unspecified consequences, widely interpreted to include possible U.S. military intervention.

    "Horrific as it is when mortars are being fired on civilians and people are being indiscriminately killed, to use potential weapons of mass destruction on civilian populations crosses another line with respect to international norms and international law," Obama told reporters at the White House as he met with Jordan's King Abdullah.
    He's being cautious, but there is already more evidence that Syria used WMD than there was that Hussain had them before the invasion.

    So what if Sarin was used in Syria, what does this have to do with the United States, Russia, or China?

    Exactly! "What difference does it make?"

    They're dead now so let's move on.
