Obama’s folly over Syria and chemical weapons


Ben Shapiro reminds us here that Obama said over and over again that Syria had been cleansed of chemical weapons.

Yes, this was the US President who drew a red line simply to allow it to be crossed. This is the mess that the much-maligned President Trump has inherited. He, unlike his unprincipled predecessor, has actually acted.

The first picture in Shapiro’s post is a reminder of why the Geneva Protocol should never be abandoned as Leftist liberals and commentators such as Simon Jenkins (in the Guardian and on Channel Four News last week) would perversely have it.
