    Obama ready to move on Syria without allies

    The Obama administration said the president is prepared to move ahead with a limited military strike on Syria without the assistance of allies after the British Parliament rejected a preliminary vote authorizing action. The U.S. said it would continue to consult with the UK but that the vote would not alter its plans.
    "As we’ve said, President Obama’s decision-making will be guided by what is in the best interests of the United States," said National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden. "He believes that there are core interests at stake for the United States and that countries who violate international norms regarding chemical weapons need to be held accountable."

    Heya DS ......then again maybe not.


    Official: U.S. may take unilateral action against Syria

    In Washington, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama was still weighing a potential response, but said his administration was working on a "compressed timeline."

    Obama faces calls for American vote on force

    Across the Atlantic, Obama said in a televised interview Wednesday that he has no doubt Syria used chemical weapons on its own people. He said government claims that the opposition used them were impossible.

    "We do not believe that, given the delivery systems, using rockets, that the opposition could have carried out these attacks. We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out. And if that's so, then there need to be international consequences," he said on "PBS NewsHour" Wednesday.

    Obama said that he has not made a decision about whether to conduct a military strike in Syria. A senior administration official said the United States would continue to consult with British officials, but declined to say if the slowdown in London would affect U.S. decision-making on Syria.

    The president is facing doubts at home as well: More than 160 members of Congress, including 63 Democrats, have now signed letters calling for either a vote or at least a "full debate" before any U.S. action.

    The author of one of those letters, Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee of California, said Obama should seek "an affirmative decision of Congress" before committing American forces.

    More than 90 members of Congress, most of them Republican, signed another letter by GOP Rep. Scott Rigell of Virginia. That letter urged Obama "to consult and receive authorization" before authorizing any such military action.

    Congress is currently in recess until September 9......snip~

    Does Obama think International Consequences comes before US National Security. Think that question should be asked by the MSMedia?

    I thought with the election of Obama the world was supposed to love us. Bush got about 50 nations to go along with him in Iraq. Obama cant even get the Brits. Surveillance, drones, Gitmo, gunboat diplomacy, WMD, move over Bush, looks like there is a new Cowboy in town.

    See, that's what we knew all along. The president will do what's in the best interest of the United States. Not whats in the best interest of the Syrian civilians who largely support their government. Also "US Interests" do not equate with your and my interests.
