Despite dire U.S. warnings and fears of a humanitarian disaster, U.S. President Donald Trump's administration has little leverage to stop Russia, Iran and Syria pressing ahead with a massive military assault against Syria's northwest Idlib province.While the new U.S. special envoy for Syria said last week America will stay in Syria until the complete eradication of Daesh (ISIS), there's little assurance Trump won't again seek the withdrawal of the roughly 2,000 U.S. troops in the countryAbove all, the summit highlighted the stark differences among these allies of convenience, with Putin and Rouhani opposing Erdogan's call for a cease-fire.As they discussed the fate of Idlib, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley was talking tough in New York, telling the Security Council that the United States would consider any assault on the province as a "dangerous escalation" of the conflict that has already claimed more than 400,000 lives and forced more than 5 million Syrians to flee the country.Twice before the U.S. has resorted to missile strikes in response to chemical weapons attacks, only to see them used again.
