Out: Netanyahu’s #BibiBomb; In: Hillary Clinton’s red line for Syria on chemical weapons

Talk from both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton turned tough today in response to reports that the Syrian government has begun moving chemical weapons. “The world is watching,” said the president in a speech at the National Defense University, adding, “If you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences and you will be held accountable.”

Earlier in the day, both Clinton and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney had warned that use of chemical weapons would be crossing a “red line” in the view of the United States. The image of a red line reminded some of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s #BibiBomb visual aid deployed at the United Nations in September to demonstrate the progress of Iran’s nuclear program. The media was quick to mock the chart as a Wile E. Coyote cartoon, so will they take Clinton’s red line seriously? Probably, although many people on Twitter were unimpressed.

While many question the placement of the red line in one nation and not another, others question the timing.
