#SyriaStrikes Aftermath: What We Know So Far -Corbett Report
We're now 72 hours into the post-Syria Strikes world and the dust is beginning to settle on the crazy events of last week. I hope you've been following all the latest information in the comments section of The Corbett Report's own open source investigation as The Corbett Report community has been doing yeoman's work in assembling and collating all the data streaming forth from the newsfeeds. But in case you haven't been following the developments this weekend let's just go over what we know, what we don't yet know, and what we can read in the tea leaves about what is to come.
Reports are that the intelligence community knows the chemical attack was not conducted by Assad. Furthermore, the US warned the Russians about the strike beforehand. The Corbett Report indicates regardless of what is going on behind the scenes the strike has painted everyone into a corner. All Al Qaeda has to do is conduct more staged chemical attacks to invite intervention.
To stop such intervention Russia and China MUST deploy large forces into Syria, to hasten the end to the war.
