Your country may just be about to start a new fight in the Middle East. The US and UK are working together on a potential missile attack on Syria in response to the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons on its own people. While it doesn’t appear that plans are in place The Daily Telegraph revealed that the first round of missile strikes could start within a week.
The discussions of potential military action come after hundreds of Syrians were reportedly killed in a chemical weapons attack believed to have been launched by the regime in that nation’s civil war. Not only could the incident lead to the US and Europe generic brands of clonazepam launching strikes on Syria, it could also pull other nations in the region into the war—including Israel.
Iran’s Fars News Agency quoted a senior parliamentarian as saying a strike on Syria could harm Israel. “Director-General of the parliament for International Affairs Hossein Sheikholeslam said Monday that Israel “will be the first victim of a military attack on Syria.”
The prospects of renewed warfare in the Middle East could lead to higher oil prices in the near future, so now would be a good time to fill up if you haven’t already.
Despite the threats of conflict, don’t expect US or British troops in Syria. BBC political correspondent Iain Watson reported that the UK’s response in Syria would not include “boots on the ground.”
