Default International law fear stifling Obama Syrian rebel aid action.

Interesting development concerning the aid to Syrian conservative rebels, Obama's legal advisors have told him not to do it because it could allow the Syrian government to kill Americans under international law. It's okay to supply military aid under domestic law. What an interesting development. The Obama administration after being backed into a corner to honor a commitment to supply military aid to rebels if Syrian government used syran gas. This is a claim that Putin says his investigators have found to be untrue, But Putin is still made about the way NATO went after Libya without UN sanction.
But the Obama lawyers are really concerned about international law which is surprising. Why should the biggest military force concern itself about international law.

The interesting item is that the government is going to get the CIA to train and equip rebels but they wouldn't be available until August. Of course the lawyers told Obama that even supplying food to the rebels maybe a violation of international law.

And now Israel is saying that the redline for Iran and its nuclear capabilies is fast approaching and Israel will take action with or without US support.
The next question to be answered is Israel trying to force Obama to another deadline decision. Support Israel or else the USA loses face.

If I were Obama I would let Israel do its thing and see what happens. If they are successful, fine mission accomplished. If they get beaten than they will know that they are not that strong and can't go it alone.

Did you say International law?

You must have gotten your material from the writers of the late night comedy shows.

Yes international law is stifling Obama and his military hawks. He has a strategy to creating a CIA sponsored army of Syrian rebels and having his Arabian allies who are supplying anti tank and aircraft missiles under domestic law. Yeah it would be funny except these actions are dragging US into the Mideast morass.

There is no such thing as international law.

The rich countries control the poor countries. Atrocities and mass murders are taking place all over the world and there is no law that is stopping them.

I don't see this administration as being hawkish any more than previous ones.

We are just a country that has not learned to mind our own business.
I say let other countries take care of their business and we take care of ours.
