Default Syria getting ugly in a hurry

We haven't really been discussing this much (at all). Some very interesting parallels are coming up, though. I look forward to the logical gymnastics.

For a president who defined his 2008 run for the White House with his forceful denunciation of the way Bush led the country into the Iraq war, and then managed the conflict, it’s an unusual turn of events, to say the least.
With explicit U.N. approval impossible to secure absent a 180-degree turn by Russia, the current president is looking for justification in international law, while Bush found it in past U.N. Security Council resolutions.
Ironic that Dubya gave better lip service to the toothless UN than Hopey Peace Prize will.

What’s the point of having the U.N. inspectors in Syria render a judgment about whether chemical weapons were used if Obama has already decided they were, and by the Assad regime?

“At this point, we do not have confidence that the U.N. can conduct a credible inquiry into what happened,” Carney said.
Well, at least they got that right.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
