Default Obama: 'I didn't set a red line, the world set a red line'

The man has no shame.

Quote:
"I didn't set a red line, the world set a red line," he said. "The world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of world population said the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent." He added that Congress set its own red line when it ratified the treaty.

Once again. Never accept responsibility and always point the finger at someone else.

You have to get away from this RW material. Let me make you aware of something. The world did set the red line

Chemical Weapons Convention


The Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) is an arms control agreement which outlaws the production, stockpiling, and use of chemical weapons. Its full name is the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on their Destruction. The agreement is administered by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which is an independent organization based in the Hague, in the Netherlands.

The main obligation under the convention is the prohibition of use and production of chemical weapons, as well as the destruction of all chemical weapons. The destruction activities are verified by the OPCW. As of January 2013, around 78% of the (declared) stockpile of chemical weapons has thus been destroyed. The convention also has provisions for systematic evaluation of chemical and military plants, as well as for investigations of allegations of use and production of chemical weapons based on intelligence of other state parties.

As of June 2013, 189 states are party to the CWC, and another two countries (Israel and Myanmar) have signed but not yet ratified the convention.

Let the "World" fight why must it always be OUR troops (and a handful of allies) who suffer and die?

Point is this is nonsense. Chemical weapons have always been a red line. I knew it and so did everyone else.

The difference is that of making a statement that chem. weapons are bad and telling another nation that if they use them, YOU will respond. Pres. Obama was clearly using the latter when he first made his "red line" comment.

"It would change my calculations significantly"


I don't see a problem with this. He even mentions the safety of Israel.

Yeah, That was another pile of BS you guys tried to take out of context and only had a nationwide right wing circle jerk over it., The rest of us understood the comment.
