On the brink of WWIII?
« on: April 12, 2018, 06:34:45 PM »
On of the "selling points" of a Trump presidency was (according to his supporters) that he was a safer pair of hands than Hawkish Hillary particularly with regard to the Middle East, yet here we are on the brink of WWIII.  Thoughts, anyone?

Call me naive but I would prefer to see firm evidence of these things ie chemical weapons (Syria) and nerve agents (Russia) before any action is taken let alone military.  We've surely been here before with WMD, haven't we? 

How do we know these substances are state sponsored and haven't fallen into the hands of rogue insiders etc?

Or that there's something iffy going on?  Is it just a coincidence we have Syria on the back of Russia?
