US Navy is already prepared
While the United Nations investigates and plans a course of action, US forces are getting in to position for possible military action.
In a response to the alleged chemical weapons attack on its own people by the Syrian regime, the USS Mahan, the USS Barry, the USS Ramage, and the USS Gravely, all Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, are en route or in position in the eastern Mediterranean for a possible strike on Syrian military assets.
Here, the guided-missile destroyer USS Ramage is seen underway in the Atlantic Ocean on September 4, 2008.
