President Donald Trump, responding to a chemical weapons attack in Syria that killed dozens -- including children -- ordered a targeted cruise missile strike on a military airbase, al-Shayrat Airfield, located in the western part of the country outside Homs. He shouldn't have. Gruesome pictures of dead children do not automatically justify an American military intervention.

Joe Biden and wife, Jill, have reportedly secured a three-book deal with Flatiron to write about life in the White House, the death of their son, Beau, and other matters considered noteworthy, interesting and, of course, marketable.
