Red Line

 

130607-syria-red-line-cartoonMostly liberal columnist¬†Richard Cohen is fed up with Obama’s dithering on Syria. Mostly conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer is fed up with Obama’s dithering on Syria too. Common ground.

Cohen wants to intervene on humanitarian grounds. As for Krauthammer : “A superpower’s role in a regional conflict is deterrence.” He feels Putin has taken Obama’s measure and our president comes up short – to put it kindly.

President Obama has said Bashar Assad will have crossed a red line if he gasses his own people. France says that gas would be Sarin.

Seems we’ve been down this line before.
