Trump Sends Tillerson to Moscow With Words Backed by Full Power of the U.S. Military
From the Daily Caller News Foundation:
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will head to Moscow this week to negotiate with the Russians, and his words will be backed up by the full power of the U.S. military.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has run the show in Syria because the Obama administration ceded the upper hand. The weakness of the previous administration boosted the power of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, giving rise to a major crisis that cost the lives of countless civilians. The latest atrocity occurred Tuesday, when the regime carried out a chemical weapons attack on a hospital, murdering innocent women and children.

The Obama administration drew a “red line” on the use of chemical weapons in Syria, yet when Assad used sarin on civilians in 2013, former President Barack Obama backed down, settling for an ineffective agreement that clearly failed to eliminate the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons stockpiles — despite the administration’s claims to have done so.
