That would be prudent. Assad is said to be considering the Samson scenario with his chemweps. Israel would massively retaliate if a Syrian strike occurs against her, unless O
has secretly agreed to preempt it in some fashion.
I suspect that is why the Eisenhower BG is offshore.
That is what the idiots running the west right now do not realize. They cannot get Assad to leave by offering him asylum. He represents a significant ethnic group. It is not just about him. If he leaves, his entire extended ethnic family of thousands, will be killed and tortured by the Islamic Insurgents and Sunni Rebels.
