U.S warns Assad of Syria and Assad of Syria says...(Fill-in the imaginary thought bubble)

What is Assad thinking?
Syria has, on the orders of its on-the-ropes president Bashar Assad, apparently loaded sarin gas into aerial bombs and seems prepared to use it on its own people!

Hillary Clinton has stated in no uncertain terms that Assad had better not use chemical weapons because in doing so he would be crossing "a red line."

Now if Assad had a thought bubble over his head, and you had to guess what his response to that statement by our Secretary of State might be, what do you think? Maybe...

  1. "I've seen what has happened with your red line in Iran and I'll take my chances."
  2. "Whatever I do the U.S. will cover it up. Judging by the lack of any U.S. response to the carnage and murder of American citizens in Benghazi I can see that there will be no distractions tolerated that could take attention away from the Obama fiscal cliff road show!"
  3. "I don't care what Hillary Clinton says! Susan Rice will make it all go away!"
Translation: The Obama administration has shown time and time again just how weak it is on the international stage so why would a madman about to be killed or exiled (and then killed) be swayed by the threat of some imaginary "red line"?

One look at the aforementioned nuclear weapons march that Iran is on, the rise to power of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the recent recognition of a Palestinian State in the United Nations over the objections of the U.S. and the administration's overall ceding of U.S. foreign policy and national security to the United Nations is all one needs in order to understand why a foreign leader may not be scared off by "red line" rhetoric!
