It happened again. A Chemical weapons attack on civilians in Syria which reportedly left at least 40 dead. It happened in the Syrian city of Douma and the President was fast to blame 'Animal Assad' while also accusing Putin and Iran.
Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 8, 2018
....to pay. Open area immediately for medical help and verification. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever. SICK!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 8, 2018
Soon afterwards there was an attack on a Syrian air base. The US was suspected but has denied it and now Israel is being accused.
Senator Lyndsey Graham says President Trump should now destroy Syria's Air Force.
So should we?
