Síria - "Is Obama in retreat?. Is François Hollande now isolated?" - por Bernard-Henri Lévy
At the present hour, with 110,000 Syrians dead and two million displaced, after the massacre of August 21 and those that led up to it, after two and a half years of shutting our eyes to a war against a civilian population that has gone from one atrocity to another, what was one more week to Syria ? Maybe the American president is right after all to call for a little more time, to try to rally Congress behind his decision to strike Damascus, and thereby to imbue the promised action with as much democratic legitimacy as possible. The pause will allow him to lay out clearly the conclusive evidence of the chemical massacre to those of his fellow citizens who are prone to conspiracy theories and suspicious of official explanations.
