I think it's fairly easy to get people to agree: Assad's a bad man who's killed hundreds of thousands of his own people.
The fact that he used sarin, a chemical warfare agent, is not just 'bad', it's evil. Completely. Not only did Assad gas his own people, he then bombed the hospital where the survivors were being treated to try to cover it up.
It is a situation that should be dealt with by the full power and agreement of the majority of the UN.
I don't often find myself in agreement with the alt-right conspiracy-fueled crazies, but the simple fact is, they don't think Trump should have done the strike, and I don't either.
Our reasons, of course, are vastly different.
The alt-right sees this as a white supremacy issue. Seriously? In 2017? <ahem> Let's just say I disagree with them.
My reason for suggesting this was a bad move is that Trump is a mental child with a big new (and deadly) toy. He has proven himself small-minded, petty, and flighty. He changes his mind on a moment by moment basis. He has no plan to speak of, no policy, no direction anyone can get behind.
He's not leading, he's reacting.
This is a real problem, as we've seen time and again, ISIS (and the rebels and the Syrian army) are all using human shields. Poor innocents that happen to be around to be used to try to prevent attack against the military.
None of the players in Syria are above trying to lure a US reactionary strike at a time and place that will cause lots of civilians to be killed.
I fear that Russia and Syria (and their tool ISIS) are going to cause Trump to go one step too far, and start a global conflict simply because he's got a new toy that goes boom.
Putin needs a war because his economy is in tatters after the combination of sanctions and the drop in oil prices. A war that the country can agree upon would unite the country in a way nothing else can, and provide lots more opportunity for growth by taking things from other countries. I'm pretty sure Crimea is not the only target Putin's got his eye on.
Simply because there are so many players on the field, we need global agreement on what is the right thing to do here. We need a strategy, we need a plan, and we need to execute on that plan together.
