Are these the battle lines for World War Three? Graphic shows which countries are siding with Russia or the US in their support – or condemnation – of Assad
I’m sure you have seen the news: President Trump launched a military strike against a Syrian airbase in response to a chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime. As I mentioned before, the images of the perished and wounded were harrowing. Numerous innocent civilians, including children, perished from this terrible attack. Now the tensions are higher than they have ever been, and any rash decisions will put U.S. and global security at risk.
At the same time, North Korea launched yet another ballistic missile earlier this week, coinciding with Chinese President Xi Jinping’s meeting with President Trump.
Our experts continue to hit the airwaves to inform the media, public, and decision-makers about chemical weapons, and to push for a solution in North Korea that hasn’t been tried in years: coupling enforced sanctions with direct diplomatic engagement.
The Center’s expertise is being sought around the globe and is shaping the debate. Will you chip in $5 to help us advise policymakers and the public on the threat of chemical weapons and the instability in North Korea?
Thank you for being with us.
