The health directorate for opposition-held areas in the Damascus region said patient symptoms “suggest they have been exposed to chlorine gas inhalation”...

I still don't understand the fuss over "chemical weapons." Gunshots, grenades, bombs, stabbings, woodchippers, chemicals, etc. What's the difference? The end result is all the same.

Occupying a middle eastern country. At least we are doing something new.


Nice!  Grin

I guess this is one of the few remaining bipartisan issues. The Congress gives war powers to the Executive in exchange for not being held to account. Hooray us!

Well, we made a fuss over it, bombed Syria, and threatened further action, so it's kind of a "What now?" when you consider Tillerson's position and everything else going on there.

I disagree with the Trump position on Syria. How does this put "America First"? I say we just stay out of it and let them kill each other. We have more important matters to tend to.

There's also the minor issue of chemical weapons being classified as WMD, which was the justification we used to pre-emptively attack Iraq.  Their use inevitably inflicts grievous death and injury on civilians.

"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."

Don't bombs and bullets and spears do the same thing?
