Assad has used sarin (a chemical weapon) several times against his own people - this has recently been certified by Obama and Congress. What should be the U.S. response to this egregious breach of the Geneva Convention?

I haven't said what I believe because I want to hear what you have to say. I have to admit I like your answer though.
Very thorough answer. Pres. Obama has to do something because his line has been crossed. You know more about the Middle East than I do, so I defer to your expertise.
Obama has t act,not t react if h wants to keep the USA image as th protector of Democracy in th world, if not ,so th Bush crusade against th Autocrat Regim in Iraq t save its peopl was just a pretext and th mater now is either sincerity or hypocrisy
Heavy Pressure Led to Decision by Obama on Syrian Arms
It's on the list of countries the Pentagon "allegedly" said they were going to invade.Clark
Love your answer!
Interesting answer that I can't completely disagree with. Obama seems to be a changed man since becoming President.
For all those years of people telling me I hate America because I didn't support Bush: your hatred of Obama makes you the America hater now. You and all your ilk: move to Cuba, or stand in front of the troops. To quote Mittens-Good for Goose, etc.
I can certainly agree with where you are coming from. Unfortunately, Obama made a commitment about crossing a red line. Congress feels it has the proof. We need our money at home to fix our own problems and yet we have this commitment. Go figure!
When those who decide to go to war start sending their children to fight them, maybe someone can convince me that the stupid line in the sand means something. And congress feeling they have proof must be the joke of the century ...
Justsilvie,the joke is when we step aside watching the millions wiped out by the autocrat regime and his murderous cronies that had to come after the West s ordeals in Iraq and Afghanistan, and in the wake of a global financial crisis.
So we wipe out the autocrat regime and his murderous cronies and as a thank you the people we have armed will be become the autocrat regime and use the weapons we gave them to kill us. Dejavu,... seems like we have been there and done that.
Ok,then ..let people die!let kids,women,old men,trees,the most ancient civilization wiped out ..Oh God send Jesus!
People have been dying and not just in Syria! And the world turned a blind eye. This is a civil war there will be no real winners no matter what.
Ok then for second time..y did USA interfere in Iraq to free its peopl from the dictator?and why France also in Libya?plus in Syria a red line has been crossed and being policeman of the world requires to arrest the villains and free the innocents
No we went to Iraq because we were lied to about weapons of Mass destruction, so excuse some of us for doubting the same sources now. France, like the UK is worried about European Terrorism and immigration resulting in those trying to escaping it.
weapons of Mass destruction was one of the reasons.There are others like Genocide against the Kurds and the Shi'ites with the chemical weapons and in Libya,the terrorism you r talking about came only after they killed Al Ghadafi.
I had a friend and coworker, who lived through the Iranian revolution and her words stay with me. “We thought once the Shah was gone it would be better”. Someone prove to me the Rebels will do better, this round!
I hope so:)
Many blessing to you!
Have a wonderful weekend!
And I hope you faith and hope are rewarded. Have a peaceful and lovely weekend.
