Syria Going Alone
FILE - This March 13, 2002 file photo shows US Troops from 10th Mountain Division sitting in a Chinook helicopter on their way to take up the fight in eastern Afghanistan. President Barack Obama is poised to become the first U.S. leader in three decades to attack a foreign nation without broad international support or in direct defense of Americans. Not since President Ronald Reagan ordered an invasion of the Caribbean island of Grenada in 1983 has the U.S. been so alone in pursuing major lethal military action beyond a few attacks responding to strikes or threats against its citizens.
