Tillerson To Accuse Russia Of Complicity In Syria’s Chemical Attack On Civilians?

War With Russia?

Tillerson To Accuse Russia Of Complicity In Syria’s Chemical Attack On Civilians

Maybe not:

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he’ll use a meeting this week in Moscow to challenge Russia about chemical weapons in Syria, as the Trump administration plans its next moves following a missile strike in retaliation for the Assad government’s use of the banned munitions. 
Russia “agreed to be the guarantor of the elimination of the chemical weapons, and why Russia has not been able to achieve that is unclear to me,” Tillerson said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” program.... 
But Tillerson said there’s been no change to the U.S. military stance in Syria beyond the missile strike, and he warned about the “chaotic” results of previous regime change in Libya. 
He said the Syrian people will decide Assad’s fate, and that defeating the Islamic State is the top U.S. priority. 
“Once the ISIS threat has been reduced or eliminated, I think we can turn our attention directly to stabilizing the situation in Syria,” Tillerson said, using an acronym for the jihadist group. Tillerson conceded that removing Assad from power could “ultimately” require greater pressure, including military action, from the U.S. or an international coalition, but he said that isn’t the preferred choice. 
Haley and McMaster also said they didn’t see the U.S. taking action on its own to force a change in leadership. ‘Very Chaotic’ 
“We’ve seen what that looks like, when you undertake a violent regime change in Libya, and the situation in Libya continues to be very chaotic,” Tillerson said. 
“We have to learn the lessons of the past and learn the lessons of what went wrong in Libya when you choose that pathway of regime change.”

Yes, it does.

Maybe Trump will fire Tillerson too.

Fuck Trump.
