The President recently, wisely declared it was time to get the US out of the mess in Syria. Then, following specious allegations of a chemical weapons attack, he returned the hard line in the sand (box). Perrin suspected Western missiles might soon fly. It seems they will though they may not be American – at first.
The first strike “honors” may go to France and England who just announced their intention to start bombing ASAP. It’s not clear whether this bluster is on US orders or a separate initiative. Either way, it is not minding our business. And it runs the West closer to real war with Syria, Iran, Russia, and did I mention Russia?
