Whether with chemical weapons or nuclear capable ballistic missiles, we set red lines with Syria and Iran and what happens?
These are weapons of mass destruction we are talking about!
What message do we send our dangerous adversaries, when we say we are going to do something and then we hesitate or don't follow through?
Respect is earned and without that we are as good as roadkill.
When we say something is crossing our red lines we ought to "say what we mean and mean what we say."
Our national security is important, and so are our red lines and follow through actions. ;-)
