Barack Obama Plays Waiting Game

Australia’s Tony Abbott did not mince his words. He had described the Syrian maelstrom as a situation of "baddies versus baddies". He was making the point that this is a civil war between two more or less equally unsavory sides. And as each day passes, it is becoming even more chaotic.

On Syria’s side, at least it has some breathing space.
