So what do you suggest, keep letting the Syrian people being gassed?
If I'm truthful, no I don't like it either. But while Europe sits on it's hands and pontificates and does nothing, at least he's trying to show that America sees it as the gross barbaric attack, that chemical weapons are.
No one in their right mind wants war, but sometimes you have to fight fire with fire.
And no, I hope we don't get drawn into it. We've got enough on our plate with ISIS and our record in the Middle East has been far from exemplary.
If President al-Assad thinks he can fight America, he's in a dream world. Perhaps this warning shot will bring him to his senses.
