7. He's trying to back down without backing down

 

He knows the "red line" rhetoric was an unforced error to begin with, mere blather to make himself look tough, and then when chemical weapons appeared to have been used Cameron and his own advisors sucked him into compounding the error with more tough words about punishment. Then all the rats left the sinking ship and he is sitting there with egg on his face, trying to pretent he doesn't look like an idiot.

His bluff has been called, big time, and he has no clue whatever what to do about it.
