Time to breathe

President Barack Obama would be far ahead of the game to seek congressional approval before going off half-cocked on Syria. The American people, after all, are weary of war. Whether Syrian President Bashar Assad did or did not use chemical weapons on his populace in Damascus eventually will be sorted out – the memory of […]
