Trump has now backed his administration into a corner. If there’s another suspected poison gas attack in Syria, he’s promised to escalate the situation by beginning bombings.
It appears that what I feared might happen under a Clinton presidency (and I still think probably would have, anyways) is now happening under the Trump administration.
Let me be perfectly clear: bombing Syria risks a direct confrontation with Russia. If that happens, all bets are off. Anything could happen next, up to and including a nuclear exchange.
