I think Subway has it spot on. Russia was advised before air strike who no doubt informed Assad and important stuff got moved in time. Trump looks assertive and Russia gets to bemoan the Western devils. Everyone (except Assad I suppose) is a winner. Also makes Trump look tough to North Korea.

They also launch nearly 60 missiles so they'll need to be replaced, thus creating jobs. Economics at work folks.

Be a different story if those missiles hit pro-Russian forces in the Ukraine though...

Just can't understand why assad would do this. He's "winning". This stuff would have been expected by someone with nothing to lose but that's clearly not the case here.

Has it even been confirmed that it definitely was him in the first place? Could be something far shadier going on than meets the eye.

Don't think so. Could well be a lot deeper than meets the eye. They keep saying it's Sarin gas also which I dont believe has been confirmed either.

It's been confirmed via an autopsy that chemical weapons were used.

It could have been some rogue generals carrying this out, but you have to remember this is Assad, he is hardly the most rational of people.

If you had called him that 18 months ago I'd have agreed. Back to the wall...then the Russians appeared. He's all but won against the rebels now.

And what's a chemical weapon? Chlorine? Phosgene? All those can be made in a kitchen lab by just about anyone with the knowledge. Sarin is another step up entirely before you hit the really nasty stuff like vx.

This wasn't some homemade chemical attack. It was proper chemical weaponary using Sarin gas.

Even though Asaad is winning his army is battle weary and he has started drafting in the Secret Police to help fight so it's still a slog. Perhaps because he feels he has the backing of Russian he felt emboldened to use chemical weaponary because it is an easier way if clearing an area that having to send in troops.

Not at all. Russia are most likely very annoyed that "someone" in the regime has chosen to release an undetermined chemical weapon. They are trying hard to show a "legitimate" face to their support and the use of this just doesn't help their case.

I see that Trump and Kim Jong-Un are shaking their chubby fists at one another now. Oh goody.

Happening at the moment. North Korea started with a bit of sabre rattling, and Trump has responded in kind:

Remember when people were worried Clinton would be a war-monger?

He literally signed off his most recent Tweet with 'U.S.A' :lol:

We actually are all doomed aren't we? He's like a real life version of Gandhi from the Civilization games.
