Syria: limp-wristed Trump orders cosmetic strike

Bullies only understand force.

Assad routinely uses chemical weapons because he knows he's covered by Putin.

When Trump makes big declarations, but orders a minimal attack, the message is clear:

"Do what you want, I won't act, just try to look good on TV"
Tough Talk, but a Restrained Strike
The proportional response was evidently calculated to keep Syria’s patrons,
Russia and Iran, from retaliating.
But when you've been a TV reality starlet for years, what counts are looks and soundbites.

Plus, Trump wouldn't want to risk making Putin really angry. Right?

:lol:

Sorry but i'll just leave this here:

Still, the response set Mr. Trump apart from President Barack Obama, who declined to respond with military force after a chemical weapons attack in August 2013 killed hundreds of people near Damascus, even though Mr. Obama had earlier declared the use of such weapons a “red line.”

Mr. Obama ultimately backed off a military strike and reached an agreement with Russia to remove Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal. That agreement was said to have been carried out, although a series of reported chemical attacks since have raised doubts about its effectiveness.

The difference being Trump knew there would be no retaliation if he threw

one or two missiles on Syria, just for show and to distract from Mueller:


because Vladimir will want to help his asset at the WH survive the collusion inquiry...

Obviously Trump is a Russian Agent. Sent to a Soviet Front military school in US and then from age 18 on chasing tail while becoming the quintessential capitalist billionaire. All for that moment at age 70 when Putin flipped the Red Queen and activated the Ghost in the Machine.

:lol:

Anyway, Trump's missile strikes on Syria (with British and French support) expose three truths devastating to the Syrians, Iranians, Russians, and Democrats (America's adversaries):

(1) unlike Obama, under the right circumstances, Trump will pull the trigger;
(2) Russia lied to John Kerry and Obama about disposing of Assad's chemical weapons in exchange for American inaction, and until Trump, we never called Russia or Syria on their lies;
(3) the Russian anti-missile systems for which Syria and Iran paid high prices are useless, and were a waste of money, a huge loss of face for Moscow.

Trump masterfully played Bashar Assad, Russia, and Iran with tweets suggesting he had proof that Assad was behind the chemical attack on civilians and that we had big missiles to deal with this. The Russians skedaddled from the major port and the chemical weapon production sites and the Iranians hightailed it back home along with, it is reported, Assad and his family. We did nothing for a few days but certainly learned a lot of valuable information about the operations of the Iranians and Russians there as we listened in to their communications and watched their movements.

:D

Trump attended Wharton. Philby, Cambridge.

Philby betrayed out of ideology, Trump because of money laundering and pee tapes.

It's over and done with now. What is he going to do next to distract from a bad news day? Tell us that Area 51 actually does have some aliens?

Actually, I was being sarcastic. But when I stop to think about it, Trump is the one person who actually would believe that about aliens, Area 51 and that the "Deep State" is keeping the information from him and the electorate. Expect a tweet about that any day soon.
