U.S. "very concerned" about Syria's WMD prep
Whether the U.S. enters the war in Syria appears to be up to the dictator Bashir al-Assad.
On Monday, CBS News reported the Assad regime had given orders to prepare chemical weapons for possible use to put down the revolt that has been raging for more than a year and a half.
President Obama said use of these weapons of mass destruction would be "totally unacceptable."
U.S. intelligence so far has not detected any sign Syria is loading chemical weapons onto aircraft, but Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said it appears the embattled Assad regime is preparing to do just that.
I'm so confused. Didn't Hillary Clinton call Syria's dictator a "reformer" little more than a year ago?
Seriously, though, this shouldn't be a concern for anyone with family or financial interests in the Middle East. The president's strategy of Leading From Behind™ should work perfectly, since he'll be in Hawaii for 20 days on his latest vacation extravaganza, which will only cost us a paltry $4 million while the Middle East boils over.
