Will Obama Wait on the U.N.?

The U.N. Security Council has been deadlocked on the Syrian conflict since 2011, with Russia and China having vetoed three resolutions condemning Assad and calling for action against his government. The U.S. might intervene in the conflict without U.N. backing, which some — including Russia — would consider illegal.
