Pentagon, White House consider military strike options on Syria

Trump will have a range of strike options to choose from, as the Pentagon prepares potential kinetic responses to the Syrian government’s threatened use of chemical weapons in Idlib. The American position in the country vis-à-vis Russia and Iran has remained tense, and the use of chemical weapons, plus any U.S. response, threatens to escalate them dramatically. In recent days, the U.S. also sent marines into the country for a life-fire exercise in order to send a strong message regarding U.S. commitment and intentions.
