Exclamation White House Reveals New "Red Lines": Assad's Use Of Barrell Bombs Could Lead To More

In the latest apparent shift of the White House's official stated position on what could draw a U.S. military response in the Syrian conflict, on Monday afternoon press secretary Sean Spicer warned that the use of either chemical weapons or the use of barrel bombs on civilians could draw fire, literally, from the Trump administration.

Will the US be sending thousands of troops to Syria as suggested by John McCain and Lyndsey Graham?

While the future use of chemical weapons or incendiary bombs and/or white phosphorus for that matter, would surely warrant further escalation in the eyes of the administration whether such attacks were legitimate or "false flagged" - these are effectively banned ordinances - the fact that the White House considers barrell bombs a catalyst for escalation is surprising. The reason for that is that barrell bombs, or oil drums or cylinders packed with explosives and shrapnel, are among the most common form of weapons used by both sides in the Syrian civil/proxy war.
