"What they have said is they are not planning further strikes but they could reconsider if they use chemical weapons again. Until that point it’s a hypothetical question."
“It’s not really because they have made their policy clear that they would look at this. Do we support that?”
“We supported last week’s strike and said it was appropriate. As for going forward it’s a hypothetical question.”

“We supported the strikes that took place and said it was appropriate. As for anything going forward, it’s hypothetical.”
