Stop Already With The Red Line Drawing

The president has said that the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government would be a “Red Line” that once crossed would result in serious consequences.
There is now evidence that the Syrian government has in fact used chemical weapons against the rebel forces.
So where are the consequences?
The silence from the White House is deafening.
So is the saber rattling from the right.
Does anyone in our government remember Iraq?
Iraq was a civil war between Sunni and Shia with the Kurds standing in the wings.
Saddam had used chemical weapons against the Kurds.
Rumor was that he was going to sell similar weapons to terrorists who would use them against us.
So we unleashed the full force and might of the US military on Saddam.
Ten years later Saddam is gone…and where are we?
The violence in Syria is a secular conflict…Sunni vs. Shia.
Are we going to make the same mistake again?
The president drew a red line in the sand.
He should stop doing that.
