IMHO - This diplomatic scheme to remove Assad has failed spectacularly. They thought they would get the UN vote. They thought they would get NATO to back intervention. They thought the assassination attempt would kill Assad. Fail. Fail. Fail. Most people after swinging and missing three times would excuse themselves and allow the next hitter to take the plate. Not Obama. Not Emperor Zero. Syria's WMD’s were never supposed to be a consideration according to their plans. So now that their plans has forced a wounded Assad into a corner and have given him justification from his own supporters to use any means necessary, Obama realizes he messed up big time. GWB showed the correct way to initially tackle a tyrant with possible WMD. Obama has shown the world the absolute incorrect way. So now rather then admit failure, Obama tells Assad that the world is watching Assad and he should not use his chemical WMD. Everything Obama says has a purpose. He is deflecting his failures onto Assad. Everyone was watching Obama’s method to tackle Assad. Everyone now realizes what a horrific failure Obama has become.
"Everyone was watching Obamas method to tackle Assad. Everyone now realizes what a horrific failure Obama has become."
Including of course Putin and his gang.

There is an alternative scenario.....
Obama is irrelevant and the fight against Assad is being conducted very well and effectively under the leadership of others. They are the Arab league led by the GCC and Turkey. Within Syria there are certainly Qatari special forces advising the rebels. These forces are American trained. American Special forces are trained to develop and advise local forces. In the Syrian battle, the concept is carried one step further. Well trained allies do the advising rather than Americans
The various forays into the UN were merely firing for effect. They knew they would not be successful but had to go through the motions. That they did. Once the UN exercises were complete, the battle began in earnest and is now achieving success.
We like to assume we are informed by the various media but the fact is, we know little about what the rebels are really doing.
