Russia is America's ally against jihadists. Assad is America's ally against jihadists. Sometimes, a little tough love is necessary to prevent WMD from being used on civilians.
Ideally, a lot of us voted for Trump because we hoped he'd do things a bit differently than his predecessors.

Iraq had WMD. They used it on their own people. Our troops were exposed to it. I posted links to it a few pages back. Get informed. "Iraq had no WMD" is a lie. Stop spreading it.

1. This morning, Secretary of State Tillerson says that the U.S. "Is Forming" a coalition to combat Assad and force a regime change.
2. Less than 12 hours later, the U.S. unilaterally attacks Syria's military.
There's a name for this type of battle strategy. Anybody recall what it is?

Senator Marco Rubio is on TV now laying out a solid case supporting Trump's actions, and said Trump had the moral and legal right and responsibility to take the action that was taken.
He said this is the way to carry out a military operation. The goal was to take out the location where the chemical attack was launched from, and that is what they did.
He also said that we have Americans near there, and our own troops are at risk of chemical attacks.
