Administration officials said they expected any new strike to be more expansive than last year’s, but the question was how much more. Possible options included hitting more than a single target and extending strikes beyond a single day.
The president's new national security adviser, John Bolton, urged Trump to skip the trip, an official said.

Moscow has cautioned the U.S. not to launch a military attack.
Finalement, toute l'escalade militaire va tenir en cette question: la Russie répondrait-elle vraiment en coulant un navire américain ou en descendant un avion militaire en cas d'attaque de la coalition?
