Clear and Concise Pentagon Statement on U.S. Missile Strike Against Shayrat Airfield in Syria…

The Pentagon clearly outlines the reason for President Trump’s strategic and selected military response.  The U.S. is stating evidence that Bashir Assad did launch chemical weapons from this exact airbase, and Russia was willfully blind in their complicity.

U.S. Pentagon – At the direction of the president, U.S. forces conducted a cruise missile strike against a Syrian Air Force airfield today at about 8:40 p.m. EDT (4:40 a.m., April 7, in Syria).  The strike targeted Shayrat Airfield in Homs governorate, and was in response to the Syrian government’s chemical weapons attack April 4 in Khan Sheikhoun, which killed or injured hundreds of innocent Syrian people, including women and children.

The strike was conducted using Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles (TLAMs) launched from the destroyers USS Porter and USS Ross in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.  A total of 59 TLAMs targeted aircraft, hardened aircraft shelters, petroleum and logistical storage, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems, and radars.   As always, the U.S. took extraordinary measures to avoid civilian casualties and to comply with the Law of Armed Conflict. Every precaution was taken to execute this strike with minimal risk to personnel at the airfield.

The strike was a proportional response to Assad’s heinous act. Shayrat Airfield was used to store chemical weapons and Syrian air forces.  The U.S. intelligence community assesses that aircraft from Shayrat conducted the chemical weapons attack on April 4.  The strike was intended to deter the regime from using chemical weapons again.

Russian forces were notified in advance of the strike using the established deconfliction line.  U.S. military planners took precautions to minimize risk to Russian or Syrian personnel located at the airfield.

We are assessing the results of the strike.  Initial indications are that this strike has severely damaged or destroyed Syrian aircraft and support infrastructure and equipment at Shayrat Airfield, reducing the Syrian Government’s ability to deliver chemical weapons.  The use of chemical weapons against innocent people will not be tolerated.

    Looking at the big picture:
    #1. It defangs the Muh Russia, Russia, Russia crap.
    #2. It was done AFTER Trump talked to Egypt and Jordan.
    #3. It was done AFTER the UN discussions.
    #4. It was done AFTER Russia said they will investigate AND their support is not cast in stone
    #5. Russia was notified before hand so personnel could be moved both Russian and Syrian.
    #6. The Deep State can now go back to sleep because they think Trump can be manuvered.
    #7. The Republicans are forced into the position of having to support Trump.
    …………

    IF the original attack came from Syria then Trump’s retaliation was justified.

    IF Trump’s retaliation was due to the Intelligence Community AND Songbird McCain and Miss Lindsey lying their rumps off, Trump can come down on the whole lot like a ton of bricks when the lying is revealed.

    My thoughts are that Flynn was turned loose but his 2nd in command retained so he can work outside the Establishment.

    When I am wrong, I admit it.
    I was wrong.
    MOST of us were very apprehensive about a USA response to the Syrian gas attack. MOST of us are savvy veterans of Bush/Obama foreign policy and Hillary/CIA false flags, so we are naturally skittish when we see a gas attack in Syria, with children demanding the USA stop the war.
    No, we don’t want to get bogged down in Syria.
    Yes, we all hate the NeoCons, banging wardrums to justify their own existence.
    Yes, when McCain, Graham, CNN, MSNBC are cheering, my natural inclination is to take the opposing opinion.
    It makes us all a little nervous.
    In this case, I was wrong.
    Bottom line, Trump has more info than we do. I trust him to make these decisions.
    Apparently, the Pentagon (the white hats of IC) have tape of the Syrian plane, leaving the airbase and dropping munitions for the attack.
    The USA has special operators in Syria, so we have the opportunity for further intel on the ground.
    Tillerson, Mattis, and Trump are adamant and I believe that trio of American braintrust.
    Note: No President bombs an airport in Syria to make a statement during the dessert course of a dinner with a Chinese President.
    That said, it was pretty effective timing.
    Yes, America is back.
    Yes, Trump made a foreign policy decision, acted quickly, and did not “tweet out” the start of WW3.
    Trump detractors are leveled.
    The Euro leaders of France, Germany, etc., look even weaker this morning.
    This action sets up serious diplomacy round between Tillerson and Lavrov next week, from a position of American strength. Again, perfect timing.
    Yes, taking out this airport, with justification, stops North Korea and Iran in their tracks.
    Yes, Trump talking to Al Sisi (Egypt) and Abdullah (Jordan) begins a new alliance in the Middle East, and their intel in Syria is superior intelligence to serve as a check against our intel.
    Yes, Trump just made Obama look like a little kid.
    No, Trump did not become a warmonger in the past 48 hours….. stop being silly.

There is also a massive lack of trust as well for the elected members of government, most especially with the US Congress. As Trump has said many times, he was not elected President of the World. His progress here in the US has been stymied by commie judges and by the uniparty. Bombing Syria looks like a diversionary tactic. Assad may be a bad guy, but the people fighting him are as bad or worse. It is not so much bed wetting as it is a WTF moment.

        The “hall of mirrors” and gaslighting is more confusing than ever.

        “The President of Russia regards the U.S. airstrikes on Syria as an act of aggression against a sovereign state delivered in violation of international law under a far-fetched pretext. The Syrian Army has no chemical weapons. The fact of the destruction of all Syrian chemical weapons’ stockpiles has been recorded and verified by the OPCW, a specialised UN body. Vladimir Putin believes that complete disregard for factual information about the use by terrorists of chemical weapons drastically aggravates the situation,” according to a statement the Kremlin released today. (http://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/news/54241)

        Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis stated that the justification of the attack came because, “The U.S. intelligence community assesses that aircraft from Shayrat conducted the chemical weapons attack on April 4. The strike was intended to deter the regime from using chemical weapons again.” (https://www.defense.gov/News/News-Releases/News-Release-View/Article/1144598/statement-from-pentagon-spokesman-capt-jeff-davis-on-us-strike-in-syria)

      (Comment): MaskOfZero • 11 minutes ago
      Ok–after my initial surprise I have changed my mind.
      At first I was worried Trump was being played like a puppet by neocons–since I don’t believe Assad attacked with gas–and I don’t see how it could be proven conclusively.
      Then I realized–it does not matter.
      Who give a crap about expending 50 cruise missiles and destroying some Syrian bunkers and planes?
      In a way–it was a brilliant move, and I am ashamed I did not see it.
      This strike, where Trump warned the Russians and Syrians beforehand, achieved many good results without risking American lives, or hurting more Syrian lives.
      Whether the Assad forces or the rebels gassed those people, Trump showed a public response which will shake up the balance of power in Syria. Assad’s main advantage was having an air force when his opponents had none. And the backing of Russia. The US seemed impotent with Russia there. The idea of creating safe zones seemed impossible while Russia worked with Assad.
      The strikes proved Trump was not intimidated by Russia, it gets McCain and Graham supporting him politically (I know, they are dirt, but Trump needs to tone their criticism of his admin), and it gets the Russia Collaboration monkey off of his back–all in 50 fell swoops.
      Internationally, Trump looks decisive or nuts or both–which all accomplish the same goal–respect for the might of the US. Xi Jinping is chatting with Trump, and he will not fail to notice this display of Trump’s
      willingness to pull the trigger.
      Tillerson goes to Moscow on Tuesday with a far better negotiating hand than before the strikes. Safe zones are essential for humanitarian reasons, and for keeping migrants out of Europe and the West, and Tillerson needs to get Putin on board with safe zones with no fly areas.
      What appeared to be a stalemate, now is shaken up, and possibilities for peace in the region are improved.

  5. My God! Reading the critical comments posted by many people here today make me want to puke. Talk about a bunch of weeping snowflakes who can’t see any further than the end of their nose! Too bad we don’t know the ages of those doing the whining because I would bet that most of them were educated after the 60’s – 70’s. That’s when the lib-idiots really gained control of our education system (I call today’s universities “re-education camps”) and things like ‘history’ and ‘logical thinking’ ceased to be honestly and effectively taught

    Many of you claim to be Reagan-supporters but it’s obvious you don’t know very much about why he was so successful Just one little reminder about just one of Reagan’s successes: In 1986 Reagan ordered airstrikes against Libya – specifically against Gaddafi’s compound. Very quickly, Libya ceased to be an instigator of terrorism and ended other war-like activity. Forward to 1989, That’s when the Berlin Wall came down. Lots of activity between those two events, but if you think that the tiny attack on Libya had absolutely nothing to do with the wall coming down, then I have a bridge and some swampland to sell you.

    I will end this personal tirade by strongly suggesting that many of you seem to have your heads stuck where the sun doesn’t shine. You can choose to either stay in the dark and continue to walk around whining about something that Pres Trump did or didn’t do — and especially when he didn’t get your specific personal permission.. OR….. you can pull your head out of you-know-where, open your eyes and try to look further down the road than the next twelve minutes.

    If I’ve managed to piss off a lot of you folks …. good! That was my intention. So now you know how pissed off many of us are after reading your ignorant, whining snowflake comments.

They claimed Assad was bad and then started a civil war. I’ve personally never seen any evidence at all that Assad has done anything. Have you? Is it OK for libtards to do that?

All the other “benefits” — show of strength, new sheriff in town, helps domestically, etc.– pale by the comparison. We are back to the same old conundrum: are we the world’s policeman? If so, everywhere and at every time for every atrocity? But, that is impossible, just like it is impossible for us to solve the poverty of the world by unfettered immigration.

      I was a strong supporter of President Ronald Reagan. He threw the Soviet Empire on to the ash heap of history.

      I was a strong supporter of President George W Bush when he responded to the 9-11 attacks by invading Afghanistan. Aside from the desire to get Osama Bin Laden, the Afghanistan invasion was an astute strategy to transform Pakistan’s society and government. Just as Al Quida was sponsored by the Taliban, the Taliban was installed by the Mushariff regime of Pakistan which has hundreds of nuclear weapons. Bush worked diligently to nurture a middle class in Pakistan that would enable the country to have an alternative to Islamic theocracy or military dictatorship. Bush almost succeeded when President Mushariff abdicated his dictatorship to a popularly elected, secular government. President Obama squandered that victory by ordering the botched raid to kill Bin Laden then deligitimizing Pakistan’s secular government by grandstanding rather than keeping it secret. We now have the same Islamic radicals that General Mushariff staged a coup against controlling Pakistan and its nuclear arsenal.

      I know far, far too much about nuclear weapons technology to believe the “Bush Lied! People Died!” mantra. Iraq was only months away from having nukes during the first Gulf War. While the CIA encouraged G W Bush to “Misoverestimate” the status of Iraq’s WMD, the essential truth is that there was no plausible alternative to the invasion that would not have resulted in Saddam Hussien or his Bathist successors staying in power then persuading our “allies” to liberate them from sanctions so that they could resume their quest for nuclear weapons. President Obama once again extracted defeat from the jaws of victory by refusing to keep a garrison in Iraq that would moderate the behavior of the majority Shia government just as American troops garrisoned Western Europe, Japan and South Korea for half a century to moderate their governments.

      America needs to respond to the world as it has become under Obama, not what it was under Bush. Thanks to Obama and Clinton’s Arab Spring debacle, the Middle East is in flames. With the exception of Egypt and Jordan, all of the zookeepers who once kept the big cats caged have been deposed or killed. Iran has been liberated from sanctions and will inevitably have nuclear weapons if they do not already have them. Our European “allies” are undergoing a demographic implosion and have now surrendered to a tsunami of African and Arab muslim refugees who will soon dominate or exterminate them.

      America needs to retreat into neoisolationism. Thanks to shale and fraking technology, we are no longer dependant on imported oil. We need not intervene in the Middle East or anywhere else in the world.

      Rather than lob no longer replacable cruise missiles into Syria or worse yet invade, America needs to heed the wise council of Governor Sarah Palin who tweeted, “let Allah sort them out.”

    Trump said it was Assad though. In that case it will freak him out. Russians will know some things are unacceptable too.

    Cold War heated up, but maybe some of the ice needed to come off to get back to negotiations. Let’s stay calm, he hasn’t gone full neo-con.

      Pro-tips for trolls: Make sure to check with your parole officers and make sure your ankle bracelets are working. Stay away from children and small animals, nd don’t stalk your ex, like your retraining orders tell you to do. Try not to mouth breathe and eat your own boogers in public. Remember to brush your teeth and shower more than once every 60 days.

    Also support of how ISIS – Ahrar al Sham – uses our morals against us to get what THEY want as they manipulate images:

    Now to all the Trumpers that are abandoning him…I support PDJT’s actions 100% and believe this was the absolute BEST position he could take as I posted early on in this article.

    Assad was NEVER directly charged by the UN’s earlier investigation of a chemical attack in 2013…Again, like Sundance uses timelines, look at BOTH of these attacks and the TIMING of them and both attacks do not bode well for Assad so why would HE do it? Do you think Russia endorsed Assad doing this as well? Putin knows what is at stake and would not endorse Assad carrying out this attack with CW’s. Again, I believe it was an attack by Assad’s Air Force on what is believed to be a conventional weapons site used by insert name ______ whereupon CW’s were expended. As far as those posting we have footage of aircraft taking off with munitions…of course we do, but we do not know what was INSIDE those munitions and why you need HUMINT on the base to tell you that information.

    Many of you I know do not think strategically (not a slight…) or as a counter-intel guy/gal but the people that control these levers in our world DO THINK THIS WAY and so you need to at least recognize this as a possibility because it happens all the time in our world govt’s.

      Agree completely.

      The end result works, but how we got there is the question.

      I’ll believe Sarin attack when i see responders wearing appropriate PPE and a lack of living bystanders 5 feet away without even a gasmask.

      Look at the response for Aum Shnryko (sp?) what, 20 years ago? Guys in the moon suits were used for rescue.

      If, and it remains a big if, sarin was actually used, how it got there is indeed the critical question.

      Would the CIA pull such sleight of hand to fool our own President? Why not? They and the NSA have been STALKING him and his family for the past year. Yeah yeah, Brennan and Clapper are now gone. What about everbody else? No whistleblowers? No white hats? A hot war (not happening, btw) would sure be a convenient way to distract from that pesky Rice investigation.

      This does not exonerate Assad nor question or compromise support for Trump. It is merely one possible scenario for a seemingly inexplicable use of CW by Assad.

      If in fact Trump, Mattis or Bannon sensed a trap, this was a brilliant response. I mention Mattis as DoD rightfully doesn’t buy IC product at face value coupled with his encyclopedic knowledge of tactics of deception and conflict used throughout the ages.

        Right on, 3X1…my thinking on this all along. All of it just does not add up BUT I could be mistaken but my experience tells me my first instincts are correct here. The attack in 2013 did not create an Assad removal response by those wanting it after the “red line” speech. And now when Pres Trump says his focus is NOT on Assad earlier in the week, and Assad and the Russkies are kicking butt on Daesh, all of sudden Assad thinks against conventional wisdom and I am sure Russia’s approval, that he will go bomb a Depot / Quarry with CW’s!! Does not compute!

        Look at photos of the Tokyo subway Sarin attack. Those who are cleaning up the spill (punctured containers of liquid Sarin) are wearing protective clothing and gas masks, but many who are seeing to the wounded are not. The reason is that Sarin gas dissipates very quickly. So it is not a sure thing that responders without protective gear would have been harmed, especially if some time had passed – say 15 to 30 minutes.

      This is from Sic Semper Tyrannis. I trust his judgement

      Donald Trump’s decision to launch cruise missile strikes on a Syrian Air Force Base was based on a lie. In the coming days the American people will learn that the Intelligence Community knew that Syria did not drop a military chemical weapon on innocent civilians in Idlib. Here is what happened:

      1. The Russians briefed the United States on the proposed target. This is a process that started more than two months ago. There is a dedicated phone line that is being used to coordinate and deconflict (i.e., prevent US and Russian air assets from shooting at each other) the upcoming operation.

      2. The United States was fully briefed on the fact that there was a target in Idlib that the Russians believes was a weapons/explosives depot for Islamic rebels.

      3. The Syrian Air Force hit the target with conventional weapons. All involved expected to see a massive secondary explosion. That did not happen. Instead, smoke, chemical smoke, began billowing from the site. It turns out that the Islamic rebels used that site to store chemicals, not sarin, that were deadly. The chemicals included organic phosphates and chlorine and they followed the wind and killed civilians.

      4. There was a strong wind blowing that day and the cloud was driven to a nearby village and caused casualties.

      5. We know it was not sarin. How? Very simple. The so-called “first responders” handled the victims without gloves. If this had been sarin they would have died. Sarin on the skin will kill you. How do I know? I went through “Live Agent” training at Fort McClellan in Alabama.

      Mike, respectfully, excluding the trolls, the “dumping isn’t exactly at the drop of a hat…it was the dropping of 50+ Tomahawks in a sovereign nation.

It looks like the all too familiar false flags that have been used as leverage to create the mess in the Middle East and around the world. Wouldn’t want to see our guy falling for it, or worse find out he was complicit in it.

    When I am wrong, I admit it.
    I was wrong.
    MOST of us were very apprehensive about a USA response to the Syrian gas attack. MOST of us are savvy veterans of Bush/Obama foreign policy and Hillary/CIA false flags, so we are naturally skittish when we see a gas attack in Syria, with children demanding the USA stop the war.
    No, we don’t want to get bogged down in Syria.
    Yes, we all hate the NeoCons, banging wardrums to justify their own existence.
    Yes, when McCain, Graham, CNN, MSNBC are cheering, my natural inclination is to take the opposing opinion.
    It makes us all a little nervous.
    In this case, I was wrong.
    Bottom line, Trump has more info than we do. I trust him to make these decisions.
    Apparently, the Pentagon (the white hats of IC) has tapes of the Syrian plane, leaving the airbase and dropping munitions for the attack.
    The USA has special operators in Syria, so we have the opportunity for further intel on the ground.
    Tillerson, Mattis, and Trump are adamant and I believe that trio of American braintrust.
    Note: No President bombs an airport in Syria to make a statement during the dessert course of a dinner with a Chinese President.
    That said, it was pretty effective timing.
    Yes, America is back.
    Yes, Trump made a foreign policy decision, acted quickly, and did not “tweet out” the start of WW3.
    Trump detractors are leveled.
    The Euro leaders of France, Germany, etc., look even weaker this morning.
    This action sets up serious diplomacy round between Tillerson and Lavrov next week, from a position of American strength. Again, perfect timing.
    Yes, taking out this airport, with justification, stops North Korea and Iran in their tracks.
    Yes, Trump talking to Al Sisi (Egypt) and Abdullah (Jordan) begins a new alliance in the Middle East, and their intel in Syria is superior intelligence to serve as a check against our intel.
    Yes, Trump just made Obama look like a little kid.
    No, Trump did not become a warmonger in the past 48 hours….. stop being silly.

    Trump might as well have said, ‘Read my lips: No more stupid wars in the Middle East’

    However, from the point of view of pure politics it was the smart thing to do ‘Wag the dog’ again, and from the point of view of minimizing casualties, advanced warning to Syria and Russia was given.

    Neocons and DhimmiRats are cut from the same cloth, anti-American Globalists. Bad company to be in, enjoy it.

    Just in case anyone thinks I have bailed on Trump, let me be clear, this was never going to be a smooth ride, and why Trump does what he does we may never know…. However, those who have fabricated this false flag and cooked the intel, Trump will find out… And when he does, woe to the CIA intel spirit cookers.

      MVW…This was the right measured response from PDJT. Let’s see where he goes from here IMO. This attack against infrastructure (Airbase) and not people sent a message to the Neocons you spoke of that needed to see if PDJT was the puppet of Russia they believed he is / was and a message to the NORKs, Iran, Russia, Assad, and the Deep State that says don’t piss me off, I will launch if it is in America’s interest. Some of you may ask, Where is this in America’s interest? Good question. It is in America’s interest because we have been seen as a “paper tiger” as bin Ladin called us over these last 8 years of Obama just as Clinton was seen when UBL made that comment prior to Mogadishu. PDJT needed to reassert America’s power and dominance which he accomplished with an attack and kept human lives out of it. Smart Power.

      I believe he may be getting the right information / intel that this may have been a setup as 2013 was by “the rebels” trying to get us to remove Assad then…You know how many times over the years I spoke with an Iraqi or Afghan and they said that AQ does have an Air Force…they’d say it’s the US Air Force because we were taking out people THEY wanted us to by falsified reporting…So PDJT targeted an airbase in the middle of the night and not a populated military center or base.

      Trump DID respond to the Intel provided but he waited until AFTER Egypt and Jordan heads of state were here. I am sure the situation was discussed, how could it have not? His response was done in such a manner as to eliminate lost lives.

      In the short term he sends a message of strength to China and Russia. He kills the Russian collusion idiocy. By having Halley bring it up at the UN, Russia can formally respond to the allegations — AND — if later the Deep State, ISIS and Songbird McCain are proved to have just gaslighted President Trump, there will be HE!! to pay and they very publicly get defanged.

    My take is it makes no sense for Assad to use chemical weapons right after T-Rex stated Assad will probably stay. Also the pics of some first responders handling victims of deadly Sarin gas without gloves or proper equipment doesn’t fly. I wouldn’t put it past the “rebels” to stage something like this to exact a response, if they thought they’d be losing US support.

    But I back my President, because even if it wasn’t Assad, or “the rebels” staged a chemical weapons attack, those tomahawks sent a message to Xi, to the fat little sadist in North Korea, to the world. There’s a new sheriff in town and he doesn’t just babble on about red lines, he takes action. Just as long as it stops here, no regime change meddling or escalation of the Syrian civil war.

    btw, I ‘luv’ how how a world of civilians, stomping around the virtual world on their meme steeds, still keep declaring they have the deep insight and moral high ground over the President of the United States, who even before he got direct access to the highest level global intelligence, had enough personal global intelligence to defeat the whole UN/Clinton propaganda machine.

    I ‘luv’ how they’ve so instantly forgotten the decades of letting UN backed International Crime Syndicates and Muslim Terrorists poke so many holes through the Laws and Justice systems of Western Nations, as to have made them no longer Sovereign, but mere carcasses for UN Crime lords to tear the meat off, with impunity.

    I ‘luv’ how they believe simply crying, “No War!” (over one surgical strike of a military asset of peoples who routinely use the slaughter of their fellow countrymen as a ‘moral’ bargaining chip with UN trough snufflers), makes All The Wars that have been ongoing at street, region, state, national and international levels for decades (thanks to the decisions of those UN Crime lords & trough snufflers), as if they are of no account, something the world’s gotten used to, best forgotten and not messed with, with such gauche things as striking the powers that make civilian human beings nothing more than meat for propaganda.

    So, now Nigel and the UKIP leadership are gobsmacked and telegraphing their dismay at the guy they backed for US president doing this. Great. So much for building cooperative Western nationalist cred, Pres. Trump.

    Aren’t we in the West tired of the “Kuwaiti newborns are being thrown from incubators and murdered by Iraqi Republican Guards!” horsesh*t, yet? I, for one, am sick of “the chirren” being used for everything from mass invasion of the USA to mass spilling of US servicepeople’s blood. Nobody’s kids are worth it if they are not American kids. Every kid has parents and a country. Let their own parents and countries either care for them or not.

    If the mid-East really gave a d*mn about their kids they wouldn’t strap them with explosives and blow their guts out on a regular basis. Cry me a river over chlorine gas getting loose and a few of them croaking.

    What about American kids starving and going without proper heat and clothing? What about American servicepeople who take their own lives because they don’t get the help they need? WHAT ABOUT THE USA!? The last I checked the “S” didn’t stand for Syria.

    A 52-year-old woman from the U.S. was taking photographs in an eastern suburb of Paris when a person police say “arrived recently in France” stabbed her several times from behind.

    Keln’s, fellow Treeper, chess analogy earlier today was spot on! Sacrifice a pawn (inanimate objects at an airbase in Syria) to setup the win. Check mate!

    PDJT has slapped the Iranians. Uppercut the North Koreans. Right hook landed on Putin.

    What do you think Xi must be thinking while sitting at the same table with Trump? Think those trade negotiations might have a different tone?

    The same people that said the intel deep state was working to take down Trump are the same ones going along with the intelligence provided blaming this on Assad.

    Has anyone heard a headcount on the deceased, as a result of The president’s actions in Shayrat?

    This whole thing about using chemical weapons is a bridge too far? I don’t think someone that’s getting killed really worries how they die, they just don’t want to die. Death is death, there’s no good way to die. Whether your being car bombed, beheaded or gassed. Death is death.

    My concern is only American for the men and women who do the warfighting not a few dead babies who died under unknown causes. This was bullshit. The globalist will get the wars they wanted.

    I wonder if this action has anything to do with the recent meetings with the leaders of Egypt, Jordan and maybe even China?
    Not that I ever have hopes of finding out…I don’t go for coincidence anymore.
    I’m not ok with our illegal military being the Global Force for Good…though I wouldn’t want Assad wearing that hat either. Winner holds the leash.
    WHY does it always have to be US?

    It matters not that Assad may not have personally ordered the Chem/weapons attack. He had the stuff in his country, against the UN and the world. As one well known president said “the buck stops with me”.u
