Of course libs are siding with Assad.
I'm not a lib, and I oppose these strikes. Could you explain how our bombing another country because of something that happened within that counry's borders that had nothing to do with us is legal?

There's nothing moral about our invasions of so many countries in the Middle East. If war didn't cause rich people to profit, we wouldn't be in so many of them.
