The United States may be in the midst of a political upheaval, but the story in Syria has remained the same for several years. Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is still gassing his own people and watching as they die in the streets.
The American strategy against Syria has been unclear for some time. Barack Obama once forcefully demanded a “red line” against the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian civil war. Assad called Obama on his bluff and Obama never retaliated in any meaningful way.
The Trump administration has, until now, seemed just as unsure about how to move forward with the Middle Eastern nation. As recently as last week, it was reported that removing Assad was no longer a priority of the United States government.
But recent events may change that line of thinking. After another chemical attack in Syria killed dozens, the United States is threatening retaliation.

I don’t disagree with you but most of the US is not Muslim.
i want to hear more what you are thinking Jacques? please?
usa killed those kids its what we do.
Signs point more to the sarin attack being by Al Nusra than the Syrian government. This is f**e news.
Trump won by appealing to the voters hopes of getting away from a self destructive foreign intervention policy that has broke the bank, not to mention, our standing with other nations. Now that we have seen his reaction to this event, it’s clear that he used b******t to baffle instead of brilliance.
