Obama Optimistic For Diplomatic Syria Decision

By Stephfon Guidry

110203_biden_obama_clinton_ap_605President Obama plots a fine line between diplomacy and military action with the Syria situation. After receiving intelligence that Syria was in development of chemical weapons he began to consult with advisers on options. President Barrack Obama presents his case to the public clearly and pulls no vague punches.

 “If we can accomplish this limited goal without taking military action, that would be my preference,” Obama said. “On the other hand, if we don’t maintain and move forward without a credible threat of military pressure, I don’t think we’ll actually get the kind of agreement I’d like to see.” (CNN.com reports) While President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin do not share sociological views they are currently working together to end the Syria conflict for global safety. As military action looms on the horizon Syria President Bashsar al-Assad found the Russian diplomatic plan agreeable. Syria is a nation in the midst of a bloody 2 year civil war with a death toll up to 100,000. Further warfare for Syria only exacerbates resources which is why President Obama and other world leaders are adamant to use an attack as a last resort.

2016 potential presidential nominee, Hillary R. Clinton, former Secretary of State weighed in on her views of the Administration’s plans after the Russian diplomacy came forward Monday. She tells CNN, this is an “important step” expounding further with “But this cannot be another excuse for delay or obstruction. And Russia has to support the international community’s efforts sincerely or be held to account.” 

The entire global and national political world stands on the fence assessing the goings on between the US and Syria. It is certain that President Obama follows the age old adage that “history favors the prepared” as the Syria situation is far from done.
