Trump’s message to the rest of the world: Time to take me seriously

Posted by on Apr 07, 2017 at 7:31 am

Thursday night’s US military strike against the Syrian airbase from which the barbaric Assad regime’s sarin-gas attack against its own people was launched was both earth-shaking and modest.

It was modest because it was focused, targeted and limited.

Its specific purpose was to degrade the regime’s ability to work its evil again. In his brief statement, President Trump did not make broad claims or suggest further action was in the offing.

He expressed appropriate outrage at the murder of children with gruesome banned weapons, but based his action in international-law terms — as punishment for Bashir al-Assad violating the terms of the Chemical Weapons Convention of which Syria is a signatory.

The use of sarin, he said, is a threat to the “US and its allies.” The president is right.

Chemical weapons need not, after all, be delivered by plane. They can be carried by individuals and released in confined spaces like the Toyko subway system, where a 1995 sarin attack by terrorists resulted in death and horrible injury to dozens and incidental injuries to more than 5,000 people.

Full story.

    President Kushner is fierce. Does this mean the Russia collusion meme is now stale and outdated?
    Oh snap…he warned Russia before the airstrike so I guess not.

    Is Trump still playing 40593049 dimensional chess while everyone else plays checkers?
    He is a super duper genius who can think holes in a boiler plate by sheer will.
