It is now the National Security Advisor General McMaster who is pushing
for regime change in Syria. The recent U.S. cruise missile attack on the
Syrian Shayrat air base which was
predominantly used to fight ISIS was McMaster’s plan. But it seems that
McMaster is now disliked by Trump and the inner White House circles.
There is thus some hope that he will leave soon. The Syrian Foreign
Minister already detects some change in the U.S. attitude towards the
situation in Syria.
