Death and suffering from vanished “red line”
The Obama pact with Syria 3 years ago was to stop the use of chlorine bombs that poison and suffocate civilians. This was a public relations victory for our president who erased the “red line” for Syria atrocities. Millions flee Syria while tens of thousands continue to die since our president negotiated safety for Syria.
Our European allies are struggling and overwhelmed with millions of refugees pouring across the continent. Our allies have a crisis within their own borders with a flood of people willing to die, for a chance to stay alive. Our president pretends he knows nothing about this problem, that he created by weakness in dealing with the dictator Assad.
Putin saw the weakness in our president. Putin volunteered to participate in the agreement to prevent the USA from intervening in Syria. Our president was happy to accept Putin getting involved. Just as our president is happy to have Putin involved in the Iran nuclear deal.
There is only silence from the USA as our European allies struggle with results of our indecisive weakness to stop Syria genocide. Germany, France, Italy, Norway, Sweden and other country leaders do not expect any answers or action from our president. Our president is busy talking about the greatest problem we face is “climate change”?
