Now let move on to the next clear target in market. Crude Oil before strike hit US$ 65, and there is a possibility a raise will be happened after the strike. Moreover, some of world stock markets will get suppressed after the news got out. Therefore, my 2 cent says perhaps there is some big interests to shove the market and commodities’ price in US/Trump’s wish.
The Syrian civil war is going on from 2011 and fought by many fractions in Syria. But it was mainly between Ba'athist Syrian Arab Republic and the president of Syria Bashar al- Assad . And the other main culprit is ISIL, Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. Iran, Russia and Hezbollah support Syrian military since 2015. But US led international coalition which includes UK and France conducted air-strikes in Syria on April 7th 2018, with their only purpose is to counter ISIL. Turkey was supporting Syrian opposition and intruding Syria by occupying northern Syria. So the water is very very muddy to understand or view clearly.
International community of peace loving people criticised all the people involved in this Syrian war including Syrian government, ISIL, opposition rebel group and US led coalition for violating human rights. An estimated 400,000 Syrian were killed since 2011. After the airstrike of US, more than 5.6 million people fled Syria. And more than 6 million Syrians were misplaced internally.
Several European countries like Germany, France were giving shelters to refugees of Syria. International community is very upset with Syrian president and ISIL and the way the president is treating his people. On the other hand world is not supporting US in its chemical strike against Syria. Peace processing is going on between UN and Syrian government. After the criticism from the world, I don't think Trump will order another missile strike against Syria.
