If the reported Assad regime attack on civilians in a suburb of Damascus is as it appears to be – a chemical assault with something much stronger than chlorine – then it is more than the mass murder business as usual of a rogue government: It is a signal of utter contempt for the U.S. and a real challenge to the credibility of the Trump administration.In his crudely cynical manner, Syrian President Bashar Assad may be banking on U.S. President Donald Trump's recent public statements about wanting to be out of Syria quickly.Why (from Assad's point of view) would anyone wishing to quit Syria want to react materially to chemical warfare, especially when the routine use of weaponized chlorine has been consistently ignored?
