    U.S. and/or "coalition" air attacks on ISI(L/S) in Syrian territory without permission/coordination with the recognized government of Syria (Assad) are justifiable under international law only if the case were that the Syrians were incapable or unwilling to intern or oppose the ISI(L/S) incursion. Such is not the case. Turkey as a member of NATO has not appealed for NATO assistance. UN peacekeeping forces are withdrawing from the Golan rather than risk involvement.

    Is Obama incapable of backtracking on the "trash talk" of three years ago, and this whole exercise is just an excuse to create an "incident" to back up three year old "trash talk"?
