On Tuesday Harry Kazianis, director of Defense Studies at the Center for the National Interest, joined The Chad Hasty Show to talk about international news and events important to the United States and the rest of the world.

Kazianis and Hasty discussed the possible response by the U.S. to the recent chemical weapons attacks in Syria, as well as situations with Russia, China, North Korea, and much more.

While summarizing the reasons President Trump must take action in Syria, despite his desire to remove the U.S. from that conflict, Kazianis said,

President Trump is sort of in a tough spot. I think his heart is to probably pull back from Syria...I think unfortunately with this chemical attack that happened over the weekend, I think it's pretty clear that, while he might want to pull troops, get boots off the ground, if you will, he's going to have to do something to make sure that Bashar al-Assad does not have the ability to use chemical weapons against his own people...We can't live in a world where people just think it's O.K. to use weapons of mass destruction, and I think that's what the president is really going to hone in on.
