The A, B, C of Obama

Israel is confirming the use of chemical weapons on a civilian population.

Done by Arabs on Arabs.

Now let's do this by a simple A, B, C.

A.

Obama makes a statement


    One year ago, President Obama said that the use of chemical weapons in Syria would be a "red line" that if crossed would result in "enormous consequences."


B.

Obama makes a statement

    Earlier this year, the United States collected evidence that Assad used sarin gas on his own people, but Mr. Obama said he wanted to gather more evidence before declaring the red line crossed.


C.

A White House official makes a statement

    A White House spokesman on Wednesday said the United States is "deeply concerned" about reports of chemical weapons attacks in Syria and is calling on the United Nations to "urgently investigate" the matter.  At the same time, White House spokesperson Josh Earnest acknowledged that the pressure the United States and its partners has put on Syrian President Bashar al Assad "has not resulted in the outcome that we would like to see, which is Assad being completely removed from power."


What statement is President Obama now making?

It's a statement of vacillation, weakness, unwillingness to confront aggression and immoral actions.

Is this the president Israel can feel secure with facing the PLO, the Hamas, the Islamic Jihad, the Hezbollah?  Facing Iran and its weapons of mass destruction?

Who is kidding?
