Death toll rising in Syria chemical weapons attack

Barack Obama ignored the crisis in Syria--even after its dictator, Bashar Hafez al-Assad, crossed Dear Leader's "red line" when the thug used chemical weapons on his own people in 2012.

From AP:
The death toll from a suspected chemical attack on a northern Syrian town rose to 72 on Wednesday while activists and rescue workers kept finding more terrified survivors hiding in shelters near the site of the harrowing assault, one of the deadliest in years in Syria's civil war.

According to a Syrian opposition group, renewed airstrikes hit the town of Khan Sheikhoun a day after the attack that the Trump administration has blamed on the government of President Bashar Assad, saying that his patrons, Russia and Iran, bore "great moral responsibility" for the deaths.
