President Obama in a statement declared that he will seek congressional approval for a strike on Syria.
What he said seemed to be a bit ‘ambiguous’, on the one hand saying that the United States has a duty to interfere in Syria and on the other hand saying that they cannot get involved in a local sectarian war that will take years to resolve.
What is the strike for then? Just for US internal political reasons? (as usual).
Furthermore President Obama said that he was ‘comfortable to attack Syria without United Nations approval. What is the United Nations for then?
