Trump's Syria Strike Is a Good Start
The Chemical Genie and Principled Minimalism

April 30, 2018  •  The Weekly Standard

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. In the White House, apparently, it is worth 105 missiles if it shows the suffering of women and children from a lethal combination of sarin and chlorine gas. President Donald Trump's response, obliterating three chemical-weapons-related facilities in Syria, demonstrated that the United States will not stand idly by when certain chemical weapons (CW) are used against civilians.
