Well, Bomber Trump bombed Syria in April with 59 Tomahawks, and has threatened the Assad government with war even if the US-backed rebels use chemical weapons.
And now look : bases! bases! bases!
I'm sure someone said that it was all gonna be diff'rent under Trump. That he was 'the peace president' and all that silly nonsense.
In 2013, when the United States first considered intervening in the Syria war, teams of U.S. Air Force commandos scouted out, across the Middle East, no fewer than 300 potential sites for new bases to support a possible intervention force.
Since then, the Pentagon has established or expanded scores of bases in Syria, Jordan, and Iraq, among many other countries.
Now we’ve located what appear to be another two new bases—one in Jordan near the border with Syria, and another a short distance across the same border in southern Syria. The two airstrips could support drones, helicopters, and special operations airplanes.
