Obama Seeks "Call to Action" Against Syria, But Should We?

Yahoo! News reports that Obama insisted that Congress and the world will lose credibility if Syrian president Bashar Assad’s alleged chemical weapons massacre goes unpunished.

“My credibility’s not on the line. The international community’s credibility is on the line, and America and Congress’ credibility is on the line,” Obama said during a visit to Stockholm, Sweden.

The U.S. president also said he is being mindful over the mistakes made with Iraq.

“I’m very mindful of the fact that around the world and here in Europe in particular, there are still memories of Iraq,” Obama said.

“Keep in mind, I’m somebody who opposed the war in Iraq and am not interested in repeating mistakes of us basing decisions on faulty intelligence,” he added. “We believe very strongly, with high confidence, that in fact chemical weapons were used and that Mr. Assad was the source.”
