The Limited Response Option Ban Ki-Moon Wants Obama To Try

What The Dreamers Want

What Barack Obama would do as a limited response if Ban Ki Moon had his way

In the efforts to water down the possible limited response threatened by the American President, the United Nations boss is starting to sound like a hippie.

If it was all up to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, Barack Obama would “give peace a chance”.

Unlike Obama’s bombless plans to capture NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden from his Russian refuge, the President wants to show the world that he is determined to punish those responsible for using WMDs against civilians in Syria.

Even President Hollande of France, the country that was against such a response to Saddam Hussein in Iraq, wants to see some kind of limited response against Assad for using chemical weapons against his own people.

Meanwhile, after the British Prime Minister David Cameron was refuted by a No vote in Parliament, President Obama’s options on the table were falling apart, because of the lack of America’s strongest ally supporting any sort of coalition to take any real measure of force against the Syrian dictator. And so, the man that was described by U.S. Vice President as a “thug” and a “murderer”, will carry on without any real fear of reprisals for using banned weapons against his own people, which have resulted in the horrid death of thousands of innocent men, women and children, and the injury and displacement of many times that number.

Of course, conventional weapons, like the tank pictured above, have caused more than 100,000 deaths in the first two and a half years of the Syrian Civil War, so why all the concern now that a few chemicals were spilled onto the battlefield?

And why did Assad even use chemical weapons? He has so many conventional weapons, he does not need WMDs to quash the rebels fighting for his demise. Is he so emotionally underdeveloped that he must resort to such means just to prove a point, even as the UN weapons inspectors were on the ground in Damascus? Or was he just trying to show his British-born wife who wears the pants around the Presidential palace?

The answer to these questions, of course, is politics. And like it or not, politics is fair game for caricaturists.
