Military strike Syria: U.S. officials are currently preparing their designs to arrange for a military strike possibility in Syria in order to help prevent future toxic gas attacks, as well as how President Assad might react to an offensive. Two government officials announced this Wednesday that the Obama administration is still under the belief that Syria should be “punished” for the chemical weapons attack, Yahoo! reported this Wednesday, Aug. 28.
The military strike in Syria possibility weighs heavily in the air as U.S. task and intelligence agencies currently design and draft a report that would present evidence against the Syrian government in regards to the toxic gas attack there in mid-Aug., one that killed well over 1,000 rebels and civilians.
While an unclassified version of the report would be released to the public, a classified account on the prospects of a Syrian military strike would also be presented to certain Congress members. The White House has allegedly announced that it has been “convinced” already, though, and is in the midst of preparing for a potential military offensive while trying to find support from U.S allies, including France and Great Britain.
"If there is action taken, it must be clearly defined what the objective is and why" and based on "clear facts," said a govt. official in a Wednesday statement.
The potential for a military offensive would not just be a single-day military strike, either — “these assault options are not limited to just one day,” added the report.
In its most general terms, both the U.S. and other national aims in designing an organized military strike in Syria would be to bring down Assad’s government in regards to its chemical weaponry and military potential. The attack would most probably be brought to a head by cruise missiles that would be fired from any one of the four separate U.S. Navy destroyers that are stationed near the Mediterranean coast.
