Germany mulls joining US-led airstrikes in Syria

The German Bundeswhr may join France, the U.K., and the U.S. in possible airstrikes on Syrian targets if the Syrian government deploys chemical weapons. Participation is supported by Angela Merkel and the CDU, who has otherwise opposed German involved in the conflict as it puts them in direct confrontation with Russia, and Green Party and FDP politicians in the opposition have also voiced support for such possibilities, but any German action in the area would be highly controversial. The country’s Social Democratic Party (SPD) politicians have largely rejected the idea.
