We can question the ethical standards of our allies (technically they are not), but such is the nature of compromise.

This will set back a diplomatic solution, if it doesn't make it impossible.

Why were we carrying out this airstrike so deep in Syrian territory, with Syrian military in close proximity, just days after the agreement? Surely the Russians were in a better position to deal with this as they probably have a direct com link with these Syrians.
