I kinda feel like President Trump has put me in a precarious position. How do I justify supporting a man who ordered a missile strike on Syria. First off there is no conclusive evidence that Syria is the culprit here. The last time the Syrians were blamed for such an attack with the politicians and the media demanding war with Syria it turned out that it was the U.S. backed rebels who were using the gas. Still Syria gave up large amounts of gas that could be weaponized. And here we go again.
The stench of this engagement comes right out of Israel. It wasn’t but a couple of weeks ago that Israel started bombing Syria again with the same old Hezbollah drumbeat they have always used to bomb their neighbors and take more land from the Palestinians. They do control our news media so of course unnamed sources rule the day and we can all go to bed content that our government knows what it is doing bombing the fuck out of people halfway across the world even though their record of actual positive results leaves something to be desired.
So no I will not embrace what Trump will unquestionably be rightly blamed for. This was a foolish juvenile action taken for, at best questionable reasons. I’m sure he was under a lot of pressure from congressman and the pentagon to act and perhaps the real signal here was for North Korea and China but I do not find these excuses to be viable. Bombing Syria is just plain wrong no ifs, ands or buts about it. Just plain wrong.
But everyone gets one even if this is a pretty big one. People made excuses for Obamas stupidity for nearly a decade so I’m just gonna let it go this time. No excuses no nothing just forget about it and hope the man learns and comes to his senses. He’s still got a long way to go before he fucks up as bad as the last guy.
