As nearly as Hope n' Change can tell, B. Hussein has never given a mouse fart about Assad killing approximately 100,000 of his own people using conventional weapons but, in order to avoid looking like Mr. Coldheart Nutfumbler during the run-up to last year's elections, said that a "red line" would be crossed if Assad used poison gas.
Which Assad did, months ago, and Barry did nothing other than go golfing.
After which more chemical weapons (in this case, Sarin gas) were used in Syria with a much larger and better documented body count. Unfortunately, it's not quite clear which of the combatants used the nightmarish weapons. But still, the president now wants to blow something up (anything, really) in Syria to show that he's still aggressively leading from behind. Or perhaps leading from his behind - the fog of war makes everything unclear.
But the bottom line (see what we did there?) is that Obama still doesn't give a mouse fart about Syrian deaths caused by bullets, explosives, or chemical weapons - but cares a lot about saving political face at a time when the entire world is seeing him as an ineffectual, lying, crap weasel whose only real interest in the Middle East is strengthening the Muslim Brotherhood.
Assuming, of course, that it doesn't interfere with his tee times.
