Dr. F. Gizem Zencirci, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Providence College
According to a recent report from the Associated Press, President Barack Obama threw his support behind a plan for U.N. Security Council talks aimed at securing Syria's chemical weapons stockpiles, even as he continues to advance the fallback idea of U.S. airstrikes against Bashar al-Assad's regime.
Seizing on that two-track strategy, a bipartisan group of senators has crafted a reworked congressional resolution calling for a U.N. team to remove the chemical weapons by a set deadline and authorizing military action if that doesn't happen.
