Trump gave no advance warning to Putin (maybe they aren't such good buddies after all).

Over 50 Tomahawks at $1.4 million each. That's an expensive message to Assad & Putin.

Just released that the Russian military was notified.

Quote:
There were Russians at the base that the US struck Thursday night, a US defense official. It was not said what the Russians' role was at the base. In addition, according to the official, the US had multiple conversations with the Russians today to warn them of the coming attack.

Trump could have sent chemical weapons experts to find out the truth but instead he sent missiles. Stupidity.

So what killed all those people, or are all the videos and images of the aftermath fake?

Why would Assad use the one thing THE WORLD knows would bring condemnation and a military response?

He's winning! Aleppo is free. Damascus is secure. Raqqa is about to fall.

Why the f would he eff that up? Just so he could teach a few civvies a lesson?

He could have just bombed the **** out of that town with conventional weapons until no building was left standing if he wanted to kill civilians. And the world wouldn't have batted an eye.

The ONLY explanation that makes any sense is that the jihadists gassed their own. Sarin was taken from Iraq and also Turkey seized some in 2013. It's in the area and the baddies have it.

Syria gave up their stockpiles and that was confirmed.

So now what does Assad have to lose? He should just unleash ALL the Sarin he has, right? Kill all the jihadis he doesn't like. Right?


But that won't happen. He doesn't have any more CWs.

Yeah I can't fathom what McCain, the Pentagon , the Saudis and Israel told him to make him change his mind.

This is just a pretext for war. The neocons have been planning this for so long and Trump doesn't realize he's being manipulated.

Prove me wrong, Mr Trump. Send experts and bring back the evidence.

Oh right. You can't cuz they'll get beheaded.

I guess finding out you were wrong about yellowcake hasn't caused you to rethink your view that our government will always lie just because they want a war?

Sorry but Powell sold us a bill of goods that said, in effect, "if we don't remove Saddam by next Thursday he will drop a nuke on New York."


He was no where near obtaining a nuke and his CW stockpiles, were old and deteriorating.

In other words he was NOT a Clear and Present Danger to the United States.

Unless he had thousands of nuclear centrifuges to process the U-238 into U-235?

So no I'm not persuaded. But I will admit that at the time I thought a war was a good idea. I have since changed my mind.

The left keeps screaming "the Russians!" when Israel, Turkey and KSA decide where US missiles will fall.

I voted for the US to get out of interventionist, destabilizing wars.

I think this will hurt Trump's re-election potential.

Either the jihadists purposely gassed their own people or stored the gas IN THE MIDDLE OF A CITY knowing that if it were bombed civilians would be exposed.

The worst outcome is that the Al Qaeda jihadis will use this to launch counter attacks against the SAA.

Thanks Trump. The US is now officially Al Qaeda's Air Force.

Shocking isn't it?

Someone killed those kids.

Who says those kids aren't Alawites?

Thousands of Shia Alawites have been disappeared. Convenient use of captives?

Tell you what- let's go there and ask the locals.

Oh right we can't. They're head choppers.

Call 202-456- 1414 and tell Trump how much you disapprove of attacking countries that pose no threat to the US.
