Undoubtedly you’ve heard that American credibility is on the line, thanks to President Obama’s vacillation on what to do about Syria.
To bomb or not to bomb, that is always the question.
Obama, indeed, seems to be stricken with indecision. Two years ago, he said that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must go. Last year, he drew the now-infamous red line on chemical weapons use.
Finally, after chemical weapons were used on civilians, most likely by the Assad regime, Obama called for military action. Then, after deploying Secretary of State John Kerry to make the case, he suddenly decided to pass the decision to Congress. (Note to Kerry: Google Obama and “under the bus.”)
