There’s a key word in the Democratic Party response as quoted in the article, which specifies that they are against any “unilateral” action.
This word is as big in this statement as the Rock of Gibraltar, because it gives the war Dems, who’ve been pressing for overt action in Syria for a very long time, and even more so now that the neocon mafia have pitched their tent in their putrid camp, a very important escape valve.
And, guess what? Though the MSM have downplayed it, France already has troops in Syria, the UK is spoiling for a fight with Russia, and the Israelis are bombing the country as much as they can to provoke a response.
And what does that mean? That means that all Trump (i.e., the US govt.) has to do is work out a military alliance with the above (which basically already exists), and voila! suddenly an attack by the US on Syria would no longer be “unilateral”!
So much for Trump’s “critics.” And their weasel words.
