Obama’s Syria policy empowered Putin: Russia hints at ‘last war in history of mankind’

Amid reports of another chemical weapons attack in Syria, President Donald Trump has called out Russian President Vladimir Putin for backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in a series of tweets Sunday.

President Trump also dished out some blame to Obama, referencing the former president’s “Red Line” threat against “Animal Assad”.

In case you’re a bit fuzzy on the details, Obama failed to follow up on his threat. Instead he passed the wand to Putin, who smiled and waved and made all kinds of assurances — then allowed Assad to keep his chemical weapons. Assad has used this weapon-of-choice against his own people on numerous occasions.

President Obama’s ‘red-line’ was a bluff, and his brokered deal was a lie

Meanwhile, Obama and his administration swore up and down that they stuck a deal to get 100 percent of the chemical weapons out of Syria. “This problem sits right in the lap of the Obama administration.” said Glenn Beck on today’s show. “We now know that President Obama’s ‘red-line’ was a bluff, and his brokered deal was a lie. He has empowered Iran, Syria, [and] Russia.”
