"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Trump to be briefed on full range of military options in Syria-source- Reuters

The Pentagon and the White House are in detailed discussions on military options to respond to a poison gas attack in Syria that killed scores of civilians, and which Washington has blamed on the Syrian government, a U.S. official said on Thursday.

Those options include things like grounding aircraft used by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces, the official added, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Such options also include use of cruise missiles - which allow the United States to strike targets without putting piloted aircraft in the skies above Syria.
