Reckless or not, Trump has balls, unlike his predecessor who let Syria cross his Red-line numerous times because he was too much of a pussy to enforce it.
Does it take "balls" to be reckless with other people's lives and limbs?

They’ll probably bomb another empty Assad Air Force base and call it a day
If they're going to strike Assad and actually accomplish something it should be done within the hour of a chemical attack.
There would be no time for investigations, no time for confirmations, however it's the only way to actually destroy Assad's air force.

I don't know if this has already been shared.
It relates to a now deleted Daily Mail but a summary of the article that is still available on Yahoo news.
The article suggests that the USA was planning a false flag chemical weapons attack on Syria, which would be blamed on Assad.
I have no idea of the accuracy of this reporting or the evidence to substantiate the claims made.
