The Syrian Civil War is arguably the worst humanitarian crisis since the Second World War, with over a quarter million killed, roughly the same number wounded or missing. Syria’s conflict has devolved from peaceful protests against the government in 2011 to a violent insurgency that has drawn in numerous other countries. It’s partly a civil war of government against people; partly a religious war pitting Assad’s minority Alawite sect, aligned with Shiite fighters from Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon, against Sunni rebel groups; and increasingly a proxy war featuring Russia and Iran against the United States and its allies.

Four years ago, after warning Assad that a chemical attack would cross a red line and trigger U.S. action, Obama failed to follow through. Rather than authorizing military action against Assad in response to a syrian gas attack that killed hundreds outside Damascus, Obama opted instead for a Russia-backed agreement to remove Syria's chemical weapons stockpiles.

Recently, warplanes targeted the town of Khan Sheikhoun again,a Rebels-held town according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the White Helmets. The place that was hit was filled with civilians. It was a residential area, not a military warehouse and many refugees were displaced there after they fled for their lives. 

That was seen internationally as a major blow to U.S. credibility and, for Obama's critics, a prime example of weak leadership. Sarian chemical weapons attacks continued after the deal.
