President Obama has finally decided to arm the rebels in Syria. After resisting evidence of brutality and even chemical weapons being used - his red line - the president has finally decided to help the Syrian rebels. Now is the time to do something. Apparently.
Why is now the time? After all the rebels have a lot of Al Qaida operatives in their midst now. And the red line was crossed long ago.
The American public do not want to get involved in another war right now.
But now is the time. Why? This is Yugoslavia-Lewinsky all over again. The president needs a war to distract from the myriad of scandals.
That's why now is the time. There is no other reason.
