Trump’s Warning To Syria On Chemical Weapons Worked, Jim Mattis Says

Trump's-WarningABOARD A U.S. MILITARY AIRCRAFT — Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Wednesday that the U.S. warning to Syria not to conduct a chemical attack on its own people appears to have been taken seriously by the Bashar Assad regime.

“They didn’t do it,” Mattis told reporters on his plane as they flew from Germany to Belgium. “It appears they took the warning seriously.”

Mattis would not confirm or discuss on-the-record statements by a Pentagon spokesman that the U.S. had observed the movement of chemical munitions at the Shayrat airfield, the same airfield from which a Syrian warplane dropped deadly sarin nerve gas on civilians April 4. Navy warships launched a cruise missile attack on the air base later that week, which destroyed several aircraft.

But Mattis did say he believed that Syria has retained chemical weapons in other locations in the country in violation of an agreement to give up all its chemical stockpiles.

    Wrong. Trump had nothing to do with this. Assad has just finally found the “big red line in the sand” put there by the last administration. he’s not afraid of Trump. After all, the American Media and the Opposition Party (redundant) keep telling us he is out of his depth, incompetent and about to be impeached. Why should Assad be concerned? Now, a former Nobel Peace Prize winner, that’s who should bother him.

    Syria has the chemicals (weapons of mass destruction) that were secretly shipped out of Iraq right before the U.S. invasion.
