I really appreciate the precision and response of our military who knew the consequences of launching a larger attack. The attack did not violate any of the Russian zones of responsibility and normal coordination of airspace was conducted. The attack also hit very specific chemical targets, much more effective than the last strike a year ago that was pretty much worthless. No Russian casualties, so no Russian aggression.

It does require a change in Trump's plans to pull out of Syria and only time will tell if Syria will actually change its tactics. The bottom line is that Assad needs to be removed from office, but we cannot undertake regime change.

Once Assad is removed from office, he can be tried for war crimes, but that can happen only after he leaves office.

So doing anything legally to Assad is not not possible, especially with Russia and Iran protecting him.
