US President Donald Trump has condemned the killing of dozens of civilians in northern Syria in an apparent chemical weapons attack by Syria's air force.
Russia has been sharply criticised by other world powers at the UN Security Council in New York over the chemical weapons deaths in northern Syria.
Reports from Syria indicate that a chemical substance has been used in Idlib in a horrific attack.
So, someone, likely Assad, attacked his own people again on Tuesday with chemical weapons.
When Obama was president he said that this sort of thing was a red line and if crossed, he would act. This sort of thing did happen again and again, and Obama did not act.
Yesterday, the UN met and the US and UK blamed Assad and berated Russia for helping him.
Then afterwards, Trump condemned the attack, blamed Assad, but made no mention of Russia - yet.
So, what happens next? Should something happen next?
On Newsnight last night, there was a discussion about this and one idea put forward is that America might send a warning to Assad and bomb one of his airfields or something. Would that stop him? There was also discussion of going in and destroying the chemical weapons, but how could that realistically be achieved without major military action? The other idea put forward was asking Russia to help and destroy the chemical weapons....like they'd do that.
Should we carry on and watch babies burn on our screens, or, risk a confrontation with the Russians and go after Assad?
My opinion, is, sod the Russians, it's time for Assad to go... years overdue in fact.
