Bashar al-Assad took over Syria from his father, Hafez, who ruled for 30 years. They lead the Alawites, a minority Muslim sect, as against 74% Sunni Muslim. (The Christian [10%] & Jewish populations have mostly emigrated.)

After tumultuous history & alliances, I'm not sure that Bashar regards anyone other than Alawite loyalists as his people. Hafez - the father - was the master of Syrian politics - Bashar is learning, but he may have made a mistake in allowing the CIS into the country.

Politics in Syria - like much of the Middle East - is a blood sport. I don't know that we (the US) have a good grasp of the situation there, & it's made worse by the CIA's giving up on gathering intel (they run the drone war in the WOT), & the US military's focusing on ground troop JSOC operations in the same war.
Thanks from Camelot

What comes next???
Putin said he will retaliate. Pro-Assad supporters are marching in the streets of Damascus. Somebody needs to be bombed to test out our new missiles on the battlefield.

I bet our new missiles have Indian Head, Maryland painted on the warhead.

Who the hell do you think you are to determine who is qualified to be Commander-in-Chief...?? The American people decided that in Nov. 2016....Let the man do his job and stay out of the way and quit trying to undermine a duly elected President.....

Was there chemical storage and manufacturing facilities taken out??...YES.... Mission Accomplished!!....a much better job than the last failure with his "Red Line" would have done..

You people are ABSOLUTELY FUCKING HILARIOUS !!!!! For EIGHT years the conservatives in this country and on this board did EVERY THING THEY COULD to UNDERMINE OBAMA. He's a Muslim, he wasn't born here, on and on ad infinitum. While we were still recovering from the second worst economic melt down in our history, Mitch McConnell said the GOP's NUMBER ONE PRIORITY was to make Obama a one term president !!!! The Republicans in congress talked openly about their plans to OBSTRUCT ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING OBAMA, EVEN WHEN IT WAS THEIR IDEA !!!

NOW you want to pull the "he's the duly elected president card" ???

HOWLING WITH LAUGHTER !!!!
Thanks from imaginethat, RNG, Camelot and 2 others

Obama did one thing right by giving Seal Team 6 authorization to nail Osama.

That is because you are to spineless to take a position on the situation. More evidence that you do not think for yourself but just parrot whatever talking points are being fed to you.

No, unlike you, I will not form an opinion until I have the relevant facts. You are the one shooting your mouth off that Assad did not gas his people without being able to offer a single fact to back up your statement. This issue should have been taken up by Congress and vetted. I am not an impulsive idiot like your dear leader. Shooting your mouth off from a place of ignorance is not courageous at all.

Telling the Russians days ahead of time only served to allow Assad to clear these facilities before they were bombed. Mission accomplished my ass. Your dear leader disagreed with you in 2013;

What will we get for bombing Syria besides more debt and a possible long term conflict? Obama needs Congressional approval.
