Barack Obama's off to war without UN
The UN commission of inquiry on Syria said last month that it had "not yet seen evidence of government forces having used chemical weapons". Indications were that rebels – not Assad – used a nerve agent, Sarin.
Now it seems Barack Obama isn't even seeking UN authorisation before escalating the war in Syria.
With reports of al-Qaida among the rebels, it seems contradictory for Obama to be giving any help to anti-Assad forces.
