US’s Syrian Strategy: World War Is One option on the table


The Wall Street Journal [1] has reported that the United States has several options on the table when it comes to Syria. One is attacking Russian and Iranian targets. The side effect could be kicking off a World War.

However, this newspaper assures that the White House is also considering political and economic options which would not necessarily involve military action.
