Trump Accuses “Assad Regime” of Chemical Attack, Says Such Acts “Cannot Be Tolerated”

As the Syrian Free Press notes in a post put up today, ISIS, Al-Nusra and the other terrorist gangs in Syria have been losing ground on multiple fronts. This is despite the fact that they have received “help in arms and men,” both from neighboring countries in the Middle East as well as from Western intelligence agencies, and despite also that they’ve even been the beneficiaries of “air raids and bombings by the Zionist entity,” as the SFP puts it. In other words, all this bounteous and copious assistance notwithstanding, the half-wit dunderheads who make up the rank and file of these terrorist armies are still losing.

Kerry Warns of ‘Repercussions’ if Assad Doesn’t Step Down

The “bellicose” rhetoric I described here isn’t, of course, limited to Ashton Carter. Secretary of State John Kerry has now jumped out into the spotlight with some threatening discourse of his own, vowing that Syrian President Bashar Assad must accept a “transitional” government (that is to say, he must, in effect, step down) or there will be “repercussions.” Here is what Reuters reports:
