So it looks like getting a UN vote on Syria isn’t going to happen, which is no big surprise. Does this mean the President will go to Congress to get authorization? That also seems unlikely, with only 9% of Americans in favor of force — which is about the same percentage who say Congress is doing a good or excellent job. Maybe Obama will get his permission, such as it were, from France and the UK.
But doesn’t teaming up with the Brits and the French to impose order on a small middle eastern country strike you as a bit… colonial?
The irony, it runs deep.
