The decision by US President Barack Obama to bomb Syria has been intentionally “leaked” to the press in great detail by the White House. The still unanswered question is: Why would an anti-war president who sat back and did virtually nothing while 100,000 Syrians died suddenly become outraged over a chemical weapons attack?

The largest military deployment in the Mediterranean since the first Gulf War is now taking place. Mr. Obama has stated that he has no intention of removing Syrian leader Bashar Assad from power, nor is there any plan to attack the stockpiles of chemical weapons. For two and a half years the president has tolerated the Syrian civil war, but no longer.
