    President Obama, who earlier said use of chemical weapons by Syria on its people would be a “red line” requiring action by the U.S., walked the stance back on Tuesday, saying he needs more information on the reported attacks before responding.

    Administration officials recently said intelligence analysts had "varying degrees of confidence" the embattled government of Syrian President Bashar Assad has gassed civilians with sarin. However, Obama said the administration is using all its resources to determine the facts about a weapon that he has said would be a "game changer" for U.S. policy in the war.

    I do not believe Obama is walking anything back nor has he been inconsistent in any of his words about Syria. In fact I remember him saying that if Syria starts using and moving around a "bunch" of chemical weapons". I believe that to be consistent with his actions thus far.

    Having said that in the below video he appeared to be nervous and unsure of his words.

    IF he allows Syria to chemically attacked its own people and stands on the sidelines, just think that will give israel the green light to take out iran nukes, as they will see the USA will not do anything about that!

    Obama's foreign policy is akin to his domestic one-

    Step one- make meaningless threats to try and get your way- or at least get some media attention and fawning.

    Step two- when people don't cooperate, either increase the number of meaningless threats or back down and say "I really didn't mean that."

    Step three- garner more attention and fawning from the mindless media muppets for doing absolutely nothing about the problem.

    Step four- as the problem continues to grow, blame Bush, Congress, conservative Christians, the NRA,... etc.

    Step five- media muppets fall over themselves to proclaim the presidents great wisdom.

    Obama is hoping our Al Qaeda allies in Syria will use the chemical weapons NATO helped them loot from Libya's arsonal so he can blame Assad. Obama is nervous because the world has him under the microscope we know he's been backing Al Qaeda terrorists. We know how false flags are used to commit us to more foreign interventions and wars. Obama knows that we know he and his government are illigitimate authoritarians serving foreign banking and corporate interests. Obama has good reason to be nervous.
