There is a chance I'm being overly dramatic, but this is really, really bad. The gas attack itself was an obvious false flag operation. With Russia's help the Assad regime was winning the war so they had no motive. The only people with a motive are the rebels or people within the US who want to start a direct military intervention.
This is going to be Iraq all over again, except with the potential to spark a war between USA and Russia.

Pentagon or Langley invested too much in Levantine drug trade or what?
If by drug trade you mean oil.
No oil in Syria, really. Some pipelines, but this mostly it. Beirut office was busted trafficking drugs since the 1980s. The Lockerbie plane crash was by CIA, so not to let four operatives testify before Congress. Case hushed, but an attempt to blame Qaddafi died in Scottish and Belgian courts... Oil is only a part of it, heroin from Middle East and SE Asia as well as cocaine from S America.
"Here's my cynical take on it. Putin ordered his patsy Trump to attack the Syrian bases, build up a fake enmity. Let things heat up between Russia and USA then further down the line broker a 'peace' deal which involves lifting sanctions on Russia. Everyone's a winner! Trump gets 19% of Rosneft, Russia gets sanctions lifted, and ExxonMobil get their deal. Politically, Trump can't lift sanctions, so this fake raising of tension is a good way of getting there eventually down the line." -Youtube Commentor
While I don't think Trump is a puppet to Putin, I could see Putin running a gamble like that. Not a bad theory in my opinion either way.
