Put some teeth into the policy to give it the chance to be effective

Reader comment on item: 12 Years since 9/11, 3 Weeks since the Chemical Weapons Attack

Submitted by Stanley Alekman (United States), Sep 18, 2013 at 14:07

If the congress were to pass a resolution supporting the US/Russian agreement re chemical weapons in Syria, also providing for a military strike on Syria at the discretion of the president should the president determine the agreement is not acceptable for any reason, it puts teeth in US policy because Russia, Syria and Iran are all terrified of a US military strike in Syria.
