Congressional Veto to Syria Intervention Would Be a Victory for Obama, Not a Fiasco

If politicians would tell the truth…Clinton would have said: “I had sex with that woman”, Berlusconi would have been convicted to lifelong in prison a dozen times by now, and Obama would have admitted he actually does not want to intervene in Syria.

Of course he claims he does, as the world was shocked by the horrendous images of the chemical attack on 21 August – a ‘moral obscenity’ as Kerry put it. Obama’s previous declarations about ‘the Red Line’ that Assad cannot pass – namely the use or movement of chemical weapons. If Assad does cross this line, ‘grave consequences’ would follow.
