They wouldn’t do it here… Right?
Here’s why the U.S. is so sure that Syrian president Bashar al-Assad’s government was behind a deadly chemical attack on August 21: U.S. intelligence listened in on a phone call between a Syrian Ministry of Defense official and someone at the country’s chemical defense unit. That call, according to a report at Foreign Policy, is more or less why the U.S. is certain that Assad’s government bears responsibility for the massacre near Damascus.
Based on the evidence, the U.S. is all but certain to take some course of limited military retaliation against the Syrian army for the chemical attacks carried out in Syria. While President Obama is still officially considering his options, there’s little evidence to suggest that the U.S. will continue to stick solely to a diplomatic approach towards the country.”
