"Jordon, Lebanon and Israel are all in serious danger. Over 110,000 Syrians have been murdered."

"Do you even have a foreign policy?"
Fair enough. But he's just the entertainer in chief. So he probably read about the ships headed there in an intelligence briefing and then began wondering how he was going to sell it to the American people. (As he joked the other day about the Christians in Egypt, he's lost his red pen to make "red lines" or whatever.) His job is generally to sell whatever he's told to sell between games of golf. And if he doesn't do a good enough job selling wars and hopium then he may put more than just his games of gold and his political career at risk. In any event, whatever the method or however it's sold in the military industrial/corporate media this was already planned out years ago. It's just that Russia's reaction to the American Empire moving in to "clean up" their former client states and so forth is becoming increasingly risky. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ha1rEhovONU&noredirect=1
Chemical weapons, terrorism and tyranny and incubator babies or whatever else shows up on CNN courtesy of The Company Inc./CIA have little to do with it. There's a reason that Clark knew all the countries on the list and that the Saudis and so forth, no matter their support for terrorism and tyranny, never seem to make the list.
