Obama, in Stockholm, says that on Syria, ‘the international community cannot be silent’
Philip Rucker and Will EnglundSTOCKHOLM — President Obama took his campaign for a punitive military strike against Syria overseas on Wednesday, declaring that “the international community cannot be silent” and that its credibility is on the line as his request for congressional approval of such action moved ahead in the Senate.
But Obama faced fresh resistance from Russia, Syria’s stalwart patron, as President Vladimir Putin asserted that the West’s case against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with respect to his regime’s alleged chemical weapons attack on civilians is “absurd” and does not stand up to scrutiny.
