I was reading between the lines and comparing Kerry's "unbelievably small strike" to Assad saying the U.S. should "expect every action" in response to a Syrian strike reminding the U.S. that his government is "not the only player in this region".<quoted text>I did not hear Assad say 'we will destroy you'. I heard him say be prepared for anything. But that is War isn't it?
Enter Iran, Russia and China. And a possible retaliation by Israel. And the possibility of WWIII.
