Yeah, thanks, Obama…for nothing.

Reports on Tuesday revealed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his allies again targeted civilians in a deadly attack where chemical weapons were used. The attack was one of the worst chemical attacks in the six-year Syrian civil war.
Rewind back to the fall of 2013, when the Obama administration was working with Syrian and Russian leaders to ensure that Assad’s stockpile of chemical weapons would be turned over and destroyed. A deal was reached, and the Obama administration and fellow Democrats applauded the achievement. The agreement was struck a year after former President Barack Obama drew his now infamous “red line” in August 2012, when he threatened military action against Assad if he used chemical weapons.
For several years, Democratic lawmakers and Obama administration officials touted that Syria turned over “100 percent” of its chemical weapon stockpile.
“It turns out we are getting chemical weapons out of Syria without initiating a strike,” Obama said….
Meanwhile, the elder Senator from AZ today blamed the Syrian gas attacks on Trump. GTHO of my lawn.
Relative to Assad’s recent use of chemical weapons; Why aren’t Democrats asked what their thoughts are? Pelosi, Schumer, Obama’s Secys. of Defense, Chuck Hagel (Repub) Ash Carter etc. I’ve heard from the usual Repub war hawk suspects, McCain, Graham, but those seem to be the only voices. (Haven’t heard (yet) from non-war hawk Rand Paul but he seems to be the lone dissenting voice in the forest). I’d like to hear a debate about, The Use of WMD necessitates a response. Maybe someone would bring up the proactive question.
In the, What is the UN doing category; Good News; It’s holding a Forum on Chemical, Biological, and Nuclear Disarmament next month. Syria will Chair the forum.
