In a perfect world, UN approval would have been sought, and had that been a real option, I would think President Obama would have done so.
    But it has been sought, repeatedly, including seeking sanctions, no fly zone and authorisation to use military force.

    I view the UN as little more than a dog and pony show and think would should have left them a long time ago. That said I think we should stay out of Syria and mind our own business as unamerican as that notion has become.

    While I don't support a strike on Syria, I always laugh at the UN flexing its muscles.
