In order to remove Syria, which is the first step to weaken and get to Iran, he must allow the Assad regime some capability to use his WMD stockpile. Once that is used, Obama has a reason to go in. Make no mistake about it, the decision to remove Assad was made a long time ago. The Obama administration is only following their plan to pave the way.
WASHINGTON — The United States, despite repeated pledges to the contrary, has ruled out military intervention to stop Syria from using its chemical weapons.
The administration of President Barack Obama has acknowledged that the U.S. Army would not be deployed to stop President Bashar Assad from firing CW at either Sunni rebels or neighboring states. Officials said the administration has concluded that Washington could not prevent Assad from using his CW arsenal.
Officials said Washington would work with other NATO allies to respond to any CW attack by Assad. They said the Czech Republic was approached on its capability to counter non-conventional weapons.
“I think the greater concern right now is what steps does the international community take to make sure that when Assad comes down, that there is a process and procedure to make sure we get our hands on securing those sites,” Panetta said. “That I think is the greater challenge right now.”
