you may need to take notes if you can’t keep up.The spin is that Obama did not make the statement when in August of 2012 he did. There was no mention of what he based his statement on. Yes, the Internation community did ban the use of Chemical weapons. There were no set “punishments” if one would violate it.Yes, the US Congress did ratify that treaty. Again, no legislation outlining consequences for violation.Obama set a limit. Someone called his bluff. Now he’s back peddling big time.And I suppose you think “someone” should spank Assad but no one has proved anything in a court of law and shouldn’t it be an international court NOT just the USA that does the spanking?It’s all kabuki theater anyway……..
