Storm In A Syrian Teacup: Tillerson, McMaster And Haley Give Nothing Away About Possible Conflict Escalation
Nikki Haley (US Ambassador to the UN), H.R. McMaster (National Security Advisor) and Rex Tillerson (Secretary of State) were interviewed separately on three different mainstream TV channels. Most media have complained that the Trump Adminstration seems to have no clear policy on Syria whilst others either worry or rub their hands in glee (depending on the political position) at the prospect of increased US involvement in the region. However, I see the message is clear: they want to defeat ISIS and then would like to see Al-Assad removed by democratic means. The overall effect of the missile attack has had the effect of putting pressure on Russia in the week before Rex Tillerson makes his visit to Moscow.
