8. not really - 'Obama Willing to Pursue Solo Syria Strikes'

WASHINGTON ó President Obama is prepared to move ahead with a limited military strike on Syria, administration officials said on Thursday, even with a rejection of such action by Britainís Parliament, an increasingly restive Congress, and lacking an endorsement from the United Nations Security Council.

The intelligence does not tie Mr. Assad directly to the attack, officials briefed on the presentation said, but the administration believes that it has enough evidence to carry out a limited strike that would deter the Syrian government from using these weapons again
