Abstract

At the end of last week, the Trump administration launched a cruise missile strike against a Syrian airbase, the first time the US has targeted the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. Jasmine Gani writes that the strikes, in response to Assad’s use of chemical weapons, do not signal a new policy of regime change from Washington. That said, even if Trump’s actions may have been for the sake of his own image, they may yet prove to be a check on further Syrian aggression and be a balance to Russia’s involvement.
