The Washington Post called on Trump to take action in Syria, while praising Israel for already doing so.

US President Donald Trump should heed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent warnings about the danger posed by Iran’s effort to establish a permanent military presence in Syria, the Washington Post said on Thursday.
The editorial called on the US to take “its own steps to block the Iranian ‘entrenchment’ in Syria that Mr. Netanyahu spoke of.”
“Diplomacy might achieve some of that, but military steps should not be ruled out,” it went on to say.
The paper also praised the Sept. 7 airstrike — reportedly carried out by the Israeli Air Force — that targeted an Assad regime chemical weapons facility in Syria’s Hama region.
“If it slows the production of those deadly weapons, Israel’s attack will have done a service for humanity as well as itself,” the Washington Post said. “It also should have served as a wake-up call for the Trump administration. Mr. Trump has been slow to recognize that the United States has vital interests in Syria beyond eliminating the Islamic State — and that those interests don’t coincide with those of Russia, which has been working in tandem with Iran.”
On Friday, US Ambassador to the UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said Iran was “not going to be in charge” of a post-ISIS Syria.
