US Airstrike Against Syrian Airfield: Trump’s First Major Mistake?
Yesterday’s US airstrike against a Syrian airbase could well be President Trump’s first major mistake. He seems to have been pushed by hawkish NeoCons in his administration, the action is being applauded by various players in the region, such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey as well as establishment NeoLiberals. Both Russia and Syria reject the reasons for the attack as pure invention and the effect on relations could well make the fight against ISIS more difficult. All isn’t lost yet, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will be in Moscow for talks next week, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.
