So Syria is not living up to their end of the bargain? Who woulda thunk it? Everyone who knows anything about the middle east, that's who. It seems as if our government is clueless, as usual.
Apparently the administration is shocked, SHOCKED! to find out that a middle east dictator who is in the middle of a desperate civil war might renege on a promise.
Meanwhile back in the USA, we hear that we are going to ship small arms to the opposition forces. That would be one way to piss off the Assad regime, and maybe they think that justifies their breaking the agreement.
If the US wants the conflict to end, why ship arms to one side? That seems like the way to keep war ongoing, not end it, and maybe that's the real intent. If we want to help we should give humanitarian aid, not guns. More guns usually leads to more violence, not more peace.
This may be exactly what it takes for President Obama to bomb them. Remember how he and Kerry wanted so badly to bomb them last summer and now they may think they have an excuse to do so.
Why would anyone be stupid enough to trust someone like Assad, anyway???
