President Barack Obama gave Syrian President Bashar Assad a stern warning Monday after U.S. officials told CBS News the Syrian regime has shown signs that it may be making chemical weapons material. Both officials spoke on the condition of anonymity, although President Obama spoke publicly about the possibility of chemical weapons in a speech at National Defense University Monday.
President Obama said he wanted to be absolutely clear to Assad that the world is watching, CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller reports.
The use of chemical weapons is totally unacceptable and if you make mistake of usingthere will be consequences and you will be held accountable, the president said.

Ooooooooo....what a tough guy. /s
Not likely Obama will do anything about it.
If he dares to use those chemical weapons, Obama is gonna send him a really, really, really stern letter.
Just setting up the false flag. We have our “friendly” terrorists ready to set off a chem event and then we use it to flatten what’s left of Assad. Then we install another Moosie Brohood dictatorship. They have to paint the picture first, which is where we are now.
The “law and diplomacy” here is striking. Assad, while a tyrant, is the non-MB tyrant. Øbama is itching to have a rationale to align US forces with MB forces, and against non-MB forces. These steps are inching towards a US fighting, even if by proxy, against Israel.
Hey, we were told ad nauseam that Saddam had no WMD’s. What’s this?
If Syria uses chemical weapons, Assad risks getting a sternly-worded letter from Obama!
Dang! You beat me to it.
While it is true that the USA is actively supporting people who want to kill you we’d like to ask you not to use any chemical weapons or else we’ll get REALLY cross with you.
ooo, I’m scared. Really scared. /sarc
Gonna be consequences and repercussions (Language warning)
So what’s O going to do- put O on his Naughty List?
Obama could care less if someone gets gassed (or shot or blown up or stabbed). All he wants is an excuse to pull a Libya and get the terrorists in charge or if not in charge, then running amok and killing our ambassador.
He wouldn’t write the stern letter, he’d ask the UN to do it.
Go get em’ Barry! I sure hope this doesn’t interfere with your 4 million dollar Hawaii escapade.
