I'm curious, did Assad (or his Generals) order this move after the U.S. warning or before? Because if he ordered this after the U.S.
explicitly warned him that we would commence military action, I truly have to question either the sanity of Assad, the sanity of his military
leadership, or the report itself. I don't quite understand why Assad would make such a risky move, knowing what it would portend. I know he is a
dictator, but he can't possibly be this out of touch with reality--can he? Then again, he could just just be moving them around to get them out of
sight, but still...where does he think he's going to hide them? The decision that world leaders make these days just continue to puzzle me.
