Facing growing questions, the Obama Administration is reiterating its claims that attacking Syria would be in keeping with America’s “national interests,” and is even threatening to launch the war without a single ally.
The president may be convinced, but few others are, as polls continue to show an extremely small portion of the American public on board with attacking Syria, only about 25 percent. That’s actually less than the 33 percent Britain had, and their parliament voted down the war today.
But that’s only because there was a vote, and the Obama Administration is adamant that they aren’t going to have any sort of vote. Still, that enormous opposition is going to make it awfully tough for him to launch a unilateral war, and raises the risk of backlash for a totally unapproved, extralegal war.
There’s no reason to expect the public to suddenly come on board either, with the administration’s own officials conceding to the Associated Press that their intelligence on the matter is certainly “not a slam dunk.” Though on TV, officials continue to insist their allegations are “undeniable,” the truth is they’re far from that, and the public seems in no mood to keep the administration’s word for it.

Did the Obama’s administration ment in keeping with Israel “National Interest”?
Even Obama cannot think that “go it alone” will not reap more trouble than saving face is worth. He should learn that making statements that "make him look strong" to avoid partisan ankle biting are almost always counter-productive.
shaky intel for the unintelligent
What is never stated by the MSM and the White House is that all of the "evidence" connected with the chemical weapons attack has been provided by Israel with Mossad agents flying from Israel and personally delivering it to Obama in the White House. Which of course means that the "evidence" was rank lies manufactured by the Mossad, in the same way that the evidence of yellow cake and WMD in Iraq was manufactured by the Mossad.
