I missed the part here reporter Grimes writes about the evidence that some 'punishment' of the Assad government is required at all.
Failing that, and there has been NO evidence presented that a nerve agent was involved, let alone which side in the Syrian Civil War used it. Other than the evidence submitted by Russia to the UN that the rebels did use a nerve agent in another attack.
That America thinks it has a right, or a responsibility, to go off on military aggressions against other countries is a state of mind once ascribed to the most evil of political regimes - the Huns, the Mongols, The Turks, the Nazis, the Communists, etc. But then, having power, and failing to exert it, has never been America's long suit. Ask the Indians, or anybody else at the pointy end of a US military intervention. .
