ISIS and U. S. backed jihadists have used chemicals before. The 2013 attack was proven to be a false flag staged by McCain’s “decent” rebels.
Plus, new intelligence says ISIS and Associates had stockpiles of the stuff there.
Assad is winning against his foreign enemies in Syria.
Assad is sitting in the cat bird seat. Trump was just last week saying regime change is off the table, and killing off ISIS is the top priority.
So in that geopolitical context, what kind of crazy contortions of suspension of disbelief has Assad playing chicken with Trump and daring him to destroy his air base??
Americans should roar in disgust at this insult to our intelligence!
