The Rule of Law means NOTHING to Obama:

According to a section of the Foreign Assistance Act, a law first enacted in 1961, the United States is required to SUSPEND foreign aid to any country that suffers a military coup. The law,“restricts assistance to the government of ANY COUNTRY whose DULY ELECTED head of government is DEPOSED by military coup or decree.”

The military that we have trained, funded and influenced for 30 years is the ONLY thing stopping the Muslim Brotherhood from taking over.

That's why it wasn't a coup. Workplace violence, maybe, stundet protest, maybe, but definitely not a coup. A coup is when the military takes over the government. Well, by golly, maybe it was a coup. Then why are we still sending them over a BILLION dollars a year? Who's running this country?

Because Obama is somehow hoping the Muslim Brotherhood will rise again.

If Obama attacks Syria it will be a huge victory for the Muslim Brohood in Egypt and around the Middle East. If America sides with the Islamists against Assad it should serve to further marginalize American influence by furthering the narrative than America is the Great Satan.
It is a win/win for President Obama.
