The decision by US President Trump to order a missile attack, on the site in Khan Shiekhoun from which Bachar al Assad launched a lethal Salin nerve gas attack against Syrian Rebels, was totally unexpected by the International Diplomatic Community !
It was not the first time that the International Press had published photos of distressed, innocent Syrian citizens of all ages, fighting for their lives after a nerve gas attack.
Bachar al Assad is not fighting a war : he wants to exterminate all opposition to his regime in Syria ! He relies on the support of Putin and Russia, to be able to act with impunity. For this reason Russia uses its Veto in the United Nations Organisation (UNO) to prevent any attempt to punish Assad.
The use of Vetoes in this way completely destroys the competence and main objectives of UNO. Their suppression must be examined. A 90% majority vote instead would probably be much more significant and permit UNO to act with authority !
