Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Excellent addition to interpretation on what's going on!

My take on the delay until after the midterm election ...

If the Russian and Syrian forces would be bombing Idlib, there will be a chance for a release of a chemical substance by whatever party on the ground putting blame on Assad. What's not needed in these weeks a retaliatory reaction by Western allies to bomb Syrian facilities creating a nationalist feeling in the US thereby backing the sitting president and the Republican party. A reverse of wagging the dog in past war scenarios.
