Question "Rep. Adam Schiff: Russia 'absolutely' complicit in Syrian chemical attack"

Russia is guilty of a coverup and lying about the perpetrators of the chemical attack, but calling Russia guilty of launching chemical weapons "by proxy" is controversial to say the least.

If I'm inside a bank during a robbery and I fail to stop the robbers, am I guilty of armed robbery by proxy?

As much as I think Rep. Adam Schiff is a douche he is probably right...Both Syrian and Russian planes share the base....Russians supposedly removed all Syrian WMD (Chemicals)..Syrians load WMD onto planes on shared airbase...A case can be made....

Its difficult to know what to make of a theatre of operations where the ft o war is even more murkier than probably usual . Especially if it leads to a stand off between two nuclear powers. Like Castro in 62 , Assad is a bad guy but not worth nuking the world over.

The question is will Putin allow Assad to use chemical weapons again just to test a Trump?

That is a very good question.

Hopefully both sides have flexed their muscles sufficiently and the locals can return to shooting each other.

Putin is a well accomplished chess player..There is no "testing" in chess..If there is an endgame in such action, then perhaps...I see none...As far as the joint threat issued by both Gov'ts backing Syria ...If they had the will, or even the way they would have done so...They don't...Iran risks the fall of their entire Government and Im surprised Putin had enough capital to send two ships in the Med..
