Poor Toothless Leadership Hurts The Strength Of the United States Internationally

(BrightCitizen.com)  Barak Obama has proven himself to be a very weak leader.  Despite the fact that  Syria’s government used chemical weapons on their own people, and Barak Obama said that the US would intervene, Barak Obama has backtracked.  He drew the line on the ground, they crossed over it, then he drew another line on in the sand.

CNN reported, Obama previously called the use of chemical weapons a “red line,” but the United States has not radically changed its approach to Syria in the days since an administration official announced the finding.

The United States doesn’t yet know “how they were used, when they were used, who used them,” Obama said. “When I am making decisions about American national security and the potential for taking additional action in response to chemical weapons use, I have to make sure I have the facts.”

CNN article here.  It seems Mr. Obama has lost his gall.  Of course, US intelligence knows who is doing what in Syria.  That is the whole reason for the initial warning.

Fox News reported

President Obama said Tuesday the U.S. would have to “rethink the range of options” it has against Syria.

The president told a group of reporters he asked the Pentagon — as early as last year — for a range of options if President Bashar al-Assad’s government had used chemical weapons.

Certainly, he already knows what the options are before he threatened.  But like a child on the playground after his line was crossed, he’s running back to the schoolhouse but still trying to look like he has authority.
