The Pentagon mentioned that it has detected active preparations by Syria for a chemical attack and threatened to retaliate. The US has more than 5,000 troops in Iraq and about 1,000 in Syria. President Trump mentioned that he won’t allow Syria to use chemical weapons, which are banned under international law.
The chemical preparations are believed to be occurring at Shayrat air base, the same air base that US fired missiles in, earlier this month and which was also used for the chemical attack of April 4th that killed more than 80 people, including women and children.
However, a senior Russian lawmaker accused the US of a ‘provocation‘ by issuing such a statement.
President Assad of Syria, what are you? Why do politicians, who are the supposed leader of a country and are looked upon by all the citizens, do the exact things they should be against? Killing innocent people, children. Is there no shame?
