Making his most passionate plea to date for military strikes in Syria, President Obama on Wednesday said the credibility of the United States — and that of the international community as a whole — is on the line, and a failure to act against the regime of Bashar Assad will embolden war criminals, dictators and despots for years to come.

STOCKHOLM -- Imagine a life where work is optional and the state guarantees a minimal standard of living regardless of employment or effort. Such a cradle-to-grave entitlement system has been the centerpiece of Swedish politics since 1932.
Mr. Reinfeldt agreed that action must be taken against the Assad government, but he said that the United Nations must lead the charge.
"Just to remind you: You are now in Sweden, a small country with a deep belief in the United Nations," he said, adding that he believes that before making any final decisions, it is best to wait for a full report from U.N. inspectors who investigated chemical weapons use in the Syrian conflict.
