If you live in the UK, France, or Syria, you're now at war. If you live in the US, you're now at more war than you were this morning.

Discuss.

Oh, looks like Trump changed his mind about Syria.
It's hard to say what the man's aiming for, but I doubt it will lead to actual war. Less back-and-forth bloodbath, and more "I blew that up. Acknowledge me".
We're way past the stage where there's an easy solution to the Syria crisis.
If they're really serious about taking out Assad's regime though, you'd think assassination would be discussed. I remember when the US bombed a site one of Saddam's sons just left and the Americans were quick to point out that they weren't trying to kill him- just all the other people there (I think it was a military installation but I don't remember). I thought that was quite hypocritical.

This is absolutely disgusting.

i think there was a coordinated attack by the UK, France, and the states on syria, and russia may have more or less declared war in response but that is second hand information

war is novel

Russia declaring war would be the only significant thing there

Also, highly doubtful

Yeah, no way. I'd hear about that immediatly :) .

There needs to be more of a reason for Russia to declare war than some operation who knows how many kilometers away from it's borders. Or so I hope.
