Red Line Crossed?

Secretary of Defense Hagel said that Syrian government forces used sarin gas against rebels.

The statement goes out of the way to say it was a small-scale use. Does that mean that the red line was not crossed in a way meaningful to President Obama's position on the use of poison gas?

Or are we about to go to war time-limited, scope limited military action with a minority Baathist government over weapons of mass destruction? Is our southern front ready?
