The conflict in Syria has been occupying much of the news recently. Having seen the rug pulled from under his feet by the actions of British Prime Minister Cameron, President Obama would appear to have found his isolation on the world stage increasingly uncomfortable.
Cameron was cunning in his plan. Having discovered a complete lack of enthusiasm for war in Syria among the British populace, he passed the decision over to the British Parliament, expecting them to reject such a move. They did, and now he is off the hook. He “wanted” to do it but they stopped him. Is Obama now trying to pull the same face-saving trick with Congress?
