Isn't that a job for the UN? The US is not the policeman of the world. The obvious solution to Syria is to keep out of it and let the bastards wipe each other out. Those 59 cruise missiles cost US taxpayers about $60 million.
All the players play the same game so you never know who's lying. Who released the sarin gas - Assad, ISIS, CIA, Israel, you name it? I can't believe Assad would do something so stupid.
This is something I've been wondering as well. Idlib was not an ISIS stronghold, it was mostly a contested region of rebels. It was an attack right on the border of controlled areas, which makes me think he was trying to provoke. The war was basically over when Russia got involved targeting rebels with the US hitting ISIS/Nusra.lemmiwinx wrote: ↑Sat Apr 08, 2017 7:39 amAll the players play the same game so you never know who's lying.

This is what baffles me. If american intelligence didnt know the cannisters were at the base, then fair enough, however if they did know the cannisters were there then they have done the same thing as assad has been accused of.
Do you mean, that perhaps assad placed them there (without any intelligence knowing) in order to try to absolve any blame for the attacks.almostapathetic wrote: ↑Sun Apr 09, 2017 7:30 am^
By that logic, then all the bad guys would have to do is keep canisters in places they didn't want bombed or attacked. It'd be like setting up shop in a hospital or school to keep from getting struck. They could say they had chemical weapons in every military location...Even in their trucks and camels.
