President's action too little too late

Published: September 9, 2013

President Obama's sudden leap toward “punishing” the Syrian regime comes too late with too little. The president's face-saving measures, apart from the loss of any tactical surprise, won't deter Syrian leaders from using whatever weapons they have against the opposition. Obama must be the joke of the Arab world. He's rapidly becoming a joke to the rest of the globe. His ineptness during the “Arab Spring” in Iran, Egypt and the Sudan were evident and resulted in the deaths of an American ambassador and his security detail. Where is George W. Bush when we need him! At least Bush wouldn't throw Tomahawk missiles at a target, only to hit a camel in the rear. I hope Congress won't support this trumped-up scheme.
