Joby Warrick Red Line
“America’s terrifying objective in Syria: to uncover and destroy Syria’s chemical weapons while also defeating ISIS—only to lose control of both.” Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, was clinging to power in the midst of a brutal civil conflict in August 2012. Concerned that Assad would use chemical weapons, President Obama warned that any such use would cross a “red line,” necessitating a military response from the United States.
When Assad used sarin gas to bomb the Damascus suburb of Ghouta, killing hundreds, Obama was caught between keeping America’s promise and entangling himself in yet another divisive Middle Eastern conflict.So Obama jumped at the chance when Russia volunteered to keep Syria’s chemical weapons.
In the midst of Syria’s civil conflict, a race to identify, remove, and destroy 1,300 tons of chemical weapons begins. The effort is described in excruciating detail as a tactical victory for the Americans, but Russia’s long strategy quickly emerges: Moscow has UN cover to support a close buddy, Assad.
