It would appear that the United States of America will lead a coalition, which will attack Syria because of allegations that Syria used chemical weapons against its own people.

As I write a definite decision has not been taken or if it has the public has not been told – we can no doubt expect President Obama to have his say in a matter of days. However, if I have read the mood music correctly, the record is now playing to a logical conclusion.
How will Russia, China and most importantly Iran, allies of Syria in this “situation” up to now, respond?
