The White House said yesterday that President Barack Obama will make his decision on Syria in accordance with the interests of the United States, this was after the British Parliament rejected a proposal that would allow military action in Damascus.
Obama is preparing for possible unilateral attack against Syria, in a matter of days, after the UK dismissed the proposal of David Cameron in a surprising vote in the Parliament. The proposal of the Prime Minister gave way to a military response against the regime of Bashar al-Assad.
“It is clear that the British Parliament, reflecting the opinion of the British public does not want a British military action” against Syria, Cameron said after the voting. “I’ll take note and the government will act accordingly,” inserted.
The motion was rejected by 285 government officials and approved by 272 deputies. The opposition was not solely responsible for this provision, there were also members of the ranks of the Conservative-Liberal coalition government.
Obama also faces internal skepticism on the subject, despite the obstacles to forming an international coalition, Obama is firm, his advisers even reported that he might be willing to act against Syria on his own.
Although it is doubtful that Washington act on its own, France announced that their armed forces “have been placed in a position to respond” if the president Francois Hollande commit their forces to an intervention in Syria.
