And replace him with what? Are Americans going to die to install a different group of barbarians? This sounds a lot like the Obama policy: Do just enough to keep the war going so hundreds of thousands more die, have international conferences, etc., etc.
I’ve got it, maybe we can have the Russians remove Assad’s chemical weapons. Except, hang on, looks like last time they missed a few last time.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Thursday that steps are “underway” to organize an “international community effort” to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad, a major policy shift triggered by the latest chemical weapons attack in the country’s ongoing civil war, the Washington Examiner reported.
“With the acts that he has taken, it would seem that there would be no rule for him to govern the Syrian people,” Tillerson told reporters. “The process by which Assad would leave is something that I think requires and international community effort, both to first defeat ISIS within Syria, to stabilize the Syrian country to avoid further civil war, and then to work collectively with our partners around the world through a political process that would lead to Assad leaving.”
Tillerson added that “those steps are underway” already.
