Former President George W. Bush said that President Obama has a "tough choice" to make when it comes to whether to launch a military strike against the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, who the administration has concluded used chemical weapons against citizens.
The Obama administration made its case for a possible military strike against Syria, and Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death for the Fort Hood Massacre. On the international stage, the British House of Commons rejected a proposal from British Prime Minister David Cameron that would have given America's ally the ability to join it in a military campaign against Syria. Here's a recap, or wrap, of the week that was from The Washington Times.
The British House of Commons rejected a proposal from British Prime Minister David Cameron that would have paved the way for British military action against Syria — effectively ending the nation's chances of getting involved in a US-led strike against President Bashar Assad's regime.
President Obama and his top aides tried to rally support Thursday for retaliatory strikes in Syria, saying they remain convinced that the Assad regime used chemical weapons, but hopes for an international coalition took a major hit when the British Parliament voted against military action.
British Prime Minister David Cameron apologized on behalf of his country Tuesday for the 1972 slaughter of 13 Catholic demonstrators in the Northern Ireland town of Londonderry, an outrage that became known as "Bloody Sunday."
