Is military action eminent? The White House has informed national media there will be a Presidential Address tonight at approximately 9:00pm from the White House.

“A short time ago, I ordered the United States Armed Forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad,” Trump said. “A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now underway.”

UPDATE 9:40pm ESTAirstrikes by combined forces from the United States, France and the U.K. have begun against elements of Syrian Bashir Assad forces in response to prior use of chemical weapons.

    Obama wanted to bomb Syria 6 years ago and the same excuse was used. Assad using chemical weapons against his own people. Where is the outcry today from Americans? Has politics blinded everyone?

      And Obama did nothing, and then last year there was a chemical attack incident (we’ll call it that for neutrality’s sake) and protests of “not me”, and Trump bombed a runway, and then all was quiet until he said he wanted to bring our troops home…at which point another incident appears to have taken place.
      So now, missiles — see a pattern? Obama always threatened and puffed, never did jack — and it got a lot of our military killed…sorta like W always did things but told them 3 days in advance, with directions to the spot and I swear the names of every leg that would be there.
      Trump says “don’t do this anymore or I may hit you”…and then he leaves it up to them to decide if they want to be hit or not; and he never says exactly when, where or if he’ll even do anything (although he does give them advance notice that he might do something). He actually does things, but tries to give people an opportunity to not engage — new rules; some haven’t learned to play yet.

          If you seem to know how attacking Russia is in America’s interest please inform us because it seems like I’m missing it. The pretext for this attack is pretty flimsy. It makes no sense for Assad to attack his own people and to use chemical weapons. With Bolton in the White House it sure gives the appearance of the Neocons being in control Egan to get us into a War in the Middle East. So please enlighten us if your insights.

            So agree – I don’t think there was a chemical attack. The U.N. team was there Saturday to investigate the so called chemical attack. We should get report soon. OAN was there and talked to people that knew nothing about a chemical attack. I really believe that old coot Bolton talked him into doing this. What has Russia done that is wrong? What?? Helping Assad kill off ISIS that were killing Christians whom Assad protected?Trump better layoff in the future or it will turn into another regime change which he attacked during debates and on the campaign trail.

The postings and comments here give me hope when I’m despairing for our country and help keep me sane when I feel like I’m going nuts.

          I’ve never called anyone a troll, but I have to ask: who are these commenters that jumped on this thread? First there’s one who preemptively attacks ANYONE who might disagree with PDJT’s decision to strike targets in Syria. That’s followed by another who engages in rampant speculation on several points, then admonishes other posters to deal in facts.

          Sad that these two almost
          immediately hijacked this thread. It’s just another example of the kind of disinformation and sowing of discord we all have to guard against. The fact that it’s been happening more and more is sad but also an indication that Sundance and CTH are over the target, I guess.

          Settling down Kim Jong Un is much more important than Assad, and has much better chance of real benefit in the future.

      OK folks. Here’s the most likely explanation of WHY Trump did this. I said this in the ramp-up to missile launch and it is playing out so far exactly as I predicted.

      1. Trump’s #1 goal is to stay in office and be re-elected in 2020. If he does this, he can do a lot more good including putting 1 or 2 more conservatives on the Supreme Court which would put right-wing power on lock in that branch of gov’t for DECADES.

      2. To achieve this goal, Trump has to weaken/kill this “muh Russia” witch-hunt by the Left/RINOs/swamp. We know the witch-hunt is stupid, but a huge portion of the country don’t know that, including the LOW-INFO VOTERS WHO LARGELY DECIDE ELECTIONS & VOTE BASED ON SOUNDBITES THEY PICK UP BETWEEN WORKING AND WATCHING NETFLIX.

      3. The two Syria missile strikes, both the one in the first few months of his presidency AND THIS SECOND STRIKE, are designed by Trump to be PROPAGANDA (SOUNDBITES) to weaken the left/swamp “Trump is owned by Russia” narrative IN THE MINDS OF LOW-INFO VOTERS while ALSO weakening public support for the swamp’s witch-hunt/impeachment efforts. Notice, BOTH Syria strikes happened as the Swamp was severely ramping up the heat on the witch-hunt.

      4. As I predicted, Trump is now saying after this 2nd strike, (my paraphrase/interpretation) “That’s all there is folks – just a missile strike. No war.” This morning he tweeted, “Mission accomplished.” In other words, NO WAR. JUST a missile strike. (In a few weeks this will probably be largely forgotten, old news – just like it happened with the first Syria strike.) This accomplishes the purpose I explained in point #3.

      5. This also accomplishes another goal for Trump: He gets to show the neocons/globalist/swamp that a huge portion of his base (and the Left) DO NOT WANT WAR and DO NOT BELIEVE the swamp’s propaganda. Many people think it possible/likely that either US neocon or Israeli intelligence (swamp) did this as a false flag to goad the US into war. Regardless, THE SWAMP WANTS WAR WITH RUSSIA (for several reasons, including to distract the American people from wanting to lynch the swamp creatures). It is important for Trump to SHOW the swamp that THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DO NOT WANT WAR. This is why Trump ANNOUNCED the strike AHEAD OF TIME rather than just doing it (which would’ve been more militarily effective) – to PROVIDE MORE AIR TIME FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO EXPRESS OUTRAGE AT THE IDEA OF WAR WITH SYRIA/IRAN/RUSSIA.

      6. Trump is making a bet that WE, HIS BASE will stick with him in the long run as we see the END RESULT (no war). This is a good bet because a) who else do we have? and b) he knows we are smart enough to figure out what he’s doing and that we’ll be fine with the end result (no war).

      7. Trump uses this strategy over and over: FAKE LEFT, GO RIGHT. It works like this: FAKE LEFT (say/do something that appeals to low-info soundbite voters &/or takes wind out of the swamp’s sails), GO RIGHT (get an end result his base likes). Examples: Syria strike #1, DACA (talk big/compassionate about letting the Dreamers stay, but end result is NO DACA), “take the guns” (compassion/centrist/left soundbite for low info voters, but he’ll never take our guns), AND NOW SYRIA STRIKE #2. Same thing. It’s not even 4-D chess, it’s just 2-D.

      8. We, his base, would like Trump to always speak the straightforward truth about everything. He does it a lot, but he can’t do it all the time. Why? Because A HUGE PORTION OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH, and HE NEEDS AS MUCH OF THIS PORTION OF THE PUBLIC ON HIS SIDE AS POSSIBLE. Do you really think Trump hasn’t considered the possibility that this gas attack (and the first) in Syria may have been false flags. He’s not stupid. But regardless of what he believes, HE HAS TO PLAY THE PROPAGANDA GAME SOMETIMES TO APPEAL TO LOW-INFO VOTERS &/OR FIGHT THE SWAMP.

      9. Moral of the story: with Trump, DO NOT take EVERYTHING he says at face value – always look at the END RESULT before judging. He is the focal point in a CIVIL WAR raging in the USA (left/RINO/globalist/swamp vs grassroots right), DECEPTION AND PROPAGANDA are often necessary in war, and he does not have the LUXURY of speaking his mind or the full truth 100% of the time.

      10. If I am right about this and Trump comes out on top in the end, doing as much as possible for us over (hopefully) 2 terms, given the left/RINO/swamp’s brutal opposition to him, without WW3 with Russia…best President ever. By a long shot.

        So he likely ordered attacks which likely killed many people to ensure he is re-elected in 2020 and to erode the “Russian Colllusion” narrative?

        I’m just not getting that. Trump is, by some accounts, getting by with the help of some in the intelligence community while the rest of the intelligence community is against him. I get the feeling this was one among many costs he would have to pay for the continued support of those in the intelligence community who have been helping him.

        After all, we have long known there are strange things going on in the middle east where US intelligence groups have been funding and supporting groups and activities which do not appear to be in US interests.

        One thing we should all recognize — in this and many other matters, we simply do not and can not know everything. We may never know. But we know there have been strange things in the past and this is a very strange thing as well.

They want two sorts of people: those who just blindly accept that it was the Russians wot did it, or that it was Assad wot did it; and those who spend their time asking questions about the official explanations. The first group call the second group conspiracy theorists and nutters. The second group call the first group dumb sheeple. And the Globalist Deep State laughs and laughs and laughs as the two groups battle it out to make sense of what has happened, leaving it free to march on to create the next reality.

        This is a propaganda battle for centrist & low-info voters. Most leftists won’t be convinced. But that doesn’t matter. What matters is the LOW-INFO VOTERS WHO JUST ABSORB SOUNDBITES YET LARGELY DECIDE ELECTIONS.

        Both these Syria missile strikes (first one months ago and this 2nd one) are NOT WAR, they’re just SOUNDBITES for low-info voters. The strikes make it HARDER TO BELIEVE the left/swamp’s “Russia owns Trump” narrative. That’s all Trump wants/needs out of this. There will be no war, if Trump has his way. He tweeted today, “Mission accomplished.” (Translation: no war.)

        Oh – another benefit to Trump is that it puts the Left in a tough position since they are traditionally the anti-war party. The Left is now in the position where they OPPOSED war in Iraq and DIDN’T believe the WMD lies our gov’t told to get us into that war, but now they SUPPORT war in Syria and DO believe the gas attack narrative our gov’t is telling us to get us to attack SyriatRussia and risk WW3? Tough sell. It tangles up the Left’s narrative like a pretzel.

    The chemical weapons were “CERTIFIED” destroyed. The Russian navy destroyed them while the U.S. Navy looked on. And the OPCW verified that they were destroyed.
    And Obama bragged about it. Were they? What proof do You have either way. One side says they did , And the other side says they didn’t.
    Now for my Stand.
    How many times did Obama, Hillary or anybody associated with that administration tell the “TRUTH”? And when has the U.N. been our friend?

    I support this President and will on my Life. Why? With the exception of the Syria issue
    he has kept his words. A President that keeps his words. Is a very rare commodity.
    Did Obama? No he was intent of making our lives a living hell.

    I suspect our President might have something up his sleeve.
    So far I haven’t seen anything other than three waves of the joint air strikes.
    And whether Russia was informed before or after is in dispute.
    As yet there is no confirmation of escalation.
    And, Daylight video and pics will be coming out shortly.
    This is still in the early stages.
    Russia and the United States will be talking to the Embassy’s.
    I’m sure harsh words will be thrown about. At first. And then they’ll cool down.
    And actually start talking to each other.
    And, I’m confident that Sundance will be busy unpacking it all in detail.
    So, Let Sundance do his job and I’m sure a lot of confusion will dissipate.

      Quiet naive to think that it was “certified”.
      Assad took control of cities by encircling them and hoping to get a deal with insurgents and their families to bus them to idlib while bombing indiscriminately.

      If they didn’t make a deal the intensity was upped incl. Gas attacks.

        The propensity arises from years of lies about foreign policy. Syria was started by Obama/Clinton/Power cabal and absolutely supported by every major media outlet. It is not possible to find a reasonable report on Syria since all media are lockstep that Assad must go. Assad is the only Arab leader that has made efforts to save religious minorities in his country.

        Best reason to side with Assad – his war is almost won. He knows that a gas attack would bring in the west. The 2013 Red Line gas attack was found to be a hoax by Mike McConnell, the DNI under Obama.

          Doesn’t pass The Smell Test – seems False Flag, to me. But then again it is the Middle East. Baathist, Hezbollah, and ISIS. And the Russians – wanting a base on the Med, and to keep out a pipeline from Saudi Arabia & the Gulf State to Turkey & Europe.

    Jimmeh Carter’s waffling on Iran in 1979 has lived in infamy. WJC’s bizarre malfeasance against Egypt in the late 1990s is of a piece with anti-Semitic Benedict Barack and MzBill’s capering stupidity in Benghazi; their Rosatom *”Uranium One”) sellout; their craven payoffs to Teheran mullah-dullahs while appeasing every tin-pot tyranny on Earth from Cuba and Venezuela to Putin’s New Czars, China and North Korean kleptarchies, Mexico’s reigning cartelistas.

    “Campaign promises” two years ago be damned: Circumstances change, Trump ain’t no Carter-Clinton-MzBill or SHD. We trust this unusual man, conferring with deeply serious advisors, to take limited preemptive action in America’s best interests today and down-the-road.

    To those addressing domestic political considerations, be advised that nothing Trump does or says will ever alter Rats’ hate-America course one micro-millimeter. Meantime, Trump will take action as he sees fit– more power to ‘im, and to hell with back-stabbing grifters, smirking bumwads, from Black KKK Farrakhanists to maundering Pelosi, Schumer, and their seditious Brennan-Clapper-Comey camarata down.

    I am not sure why our president did this, but he didn’t act in haste. My guess is both Russia and Syria knew this would happen. What part of Damascus was bombed? It was already in shambles, perhaps that was to take the previously bombed buildings down even more?
    We are living in the last days and here is what Bible prophecy says about Damascus in the latter days:
    Isaiah 17:1:

    Please see Qanon posts for details of what is really going on. All is not as it seems. Specific action is being taken against those who effected the chemical attack (false flag) and it was not Assad apparently. US and other mercenaries apparently acting with ISIS etc for Deep State, who had “access” to chemical facilities are the real target. The big players are cooperating. Trump via Q impresses on us that the attacks are targeted and intelligence is good.

    No matter what, I will vote for PDJT in 2020. I will also (holding my nose) vote ‘R’ in 2018 so that PDJT has some chance of success.

    But, mine is an informed allegiance. Many, as you know, are fair weather supporters of PDJT that will flee at the first hint of him not fulfilling even the most tenuous of campaign promises.
    Enter Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron. Both are nasty enemies of PDJT. Trump called out May for the disaster she has wrought on her own nation through globalist ambitions and massive immigration failures. He cost her dearly in support within her own country. The French (according to a recent poll) hate PDJT even more than Putin. Macron remains livid at the billions in industrial extortion money he lost by Trump pulling the plug on the Paris climate accords. Similar to Ms. May, PDJT has spared no punches in shining a bright light on his poor leadership as well.

    I mention these things because I am coming to view most political actions under a single lens. Do they help – or hurt – my president? Why would people like May and Macron (who don’t even care that their own countries are near ruin) be so quick to encourage and support the attack on Syria? Why is it supported so readily by Democrats and RINOs in our congress? Why, was the attack hurriedly carried out 1-day before international chemical weapons inspectors were to enter Douma (with Assad’s permission)?

    To progressives and the permanent state, PDJT is no less than a mortal virus inadvertently injected into their life blood. I pray he can remain long enough to affect their demise. But, since power is the only currency in Washington, then every tactic will be used to regain it. When I look at events through the lens I described, it seems that separating PDJT from 10 -20 percent of his base is a fairly worthy strategic objective, dovetailing nicely with the malevolent legal onslaught directed by a dirty cop called Mueller.

      Agree with you on May especially. She is definitely trying to take down PDJT. Nunes has said that the State Dept. was working with a foreign intelligence service to defeat Trump. I’m guessing that’s the UK and MI6, and May was knee deep in it. Instead of hitting Syria, the missiles should have landed in London.

    This is so easy to explain.

    You keep rat poison in the barn to kill the rats. Your neighbor throws your rat poison in your well.
    Who is responsible for poisoning your well?

    Syrian medical people use chlorine to disinfect hospitals, etc, and disinfect/prepare dead bodies.
    Assad bombs the places where the chlorine is stored.
    Who is responsible for the chemical attack?

    That was the reasoning April 2017, it is the reasoning today. Assad also does use chemical weapons in barrel bombs, etc. We had a full year to factually determine exactly where Assad’s chemicals are stored.
    As soon as Assad heard we were going to pull out, Assad pulls another attack. Assad had this one coming. Russia knows it. There will be no repercussions.

    Incidentally, Obama used the CIA to determine his actions. Not wise, considering who headed the CIA.
    Pres Trump uses our military, who have every reason to aviod war and killing. Anyone who does not believe that, is just stupid. Beg pardon, factually challenged.

I see both Bush and Obama as uncaring, dishonest individuals with a huge streak of bloodlust running through them. I really don’t think either of them cared one bit how many people they killed, maimed, terrorized with their actions. And so to compare Trump to THEM???! Well, that is seriously messed up.

      How is a one-hour period of missile/bomb attacks on a handful of specific chemical weapons facilities “breaking a campaign promise”? I’m not sure if I approve of this, I don’t yet have enough info. And I’m definitely not sure I believe Assad did what they claim. But at this moment it appears that the attacks last night were “surgical”, and despite some angry comments for public consumption, I don’t think Russia/Putin are freaking out over any of this. There very well could be more to this than we know. Now if this expands, if this becomes a daily event, or if we “put boots on the ground”… well if that happens, then I might agree with you that Trump has broken a promise. But as of right now, I don’t think so.

Salvini went on record calling it a “false flag.” This particular protest rally was put on by a peace group who are are anti war and not communists, most who were there were carrying Syrian flags, and there were other groups protesting it as well (the tweeter chose only to show a small faction carrying commie flags). Communist party is just as fringe in Italy as it is in US.

    Did the respective military’s bomb “chemical weapons” factories, or did we bomb something else that is far more important?

    Personally, I think America, England and France just bombed the hell out of something that is classified information.

    Zero casualties reported.

    This is pure speculation by me, but I think the mission was to eliminate some kind of weapon technology – not chemical weapons themselves, but rather the data centers used to operate such types of facilities that are no more.

    Don’t go after the body, cut off the head.

    This is war, not football.

    The body still exists,so the people are happy because they have no idea – but the information flow to the brains behind Russia and Syria’s (and China, and Iran) has been cut off.

    Nobody got killed! Zero casualties on either side – THAT is unheard of.

    It’s like some incredible guy from New York got on the phone with Assad and Putin and said, “We know everything about what you’ve been doing, where you’ve been doing it, so you have a couple of days to make sure to get the hell out of Dodge before we blow it up. Nobody gets killed, everyone is happy because most of your people have no idea what the hell we’re talking about, so…get out now, we’re going to blow the hell out of it, and then we can talk trade afterwards, okay?

    For those of us following the Q drops there is Q..uite the different story on Syria . The very reason I suspect that Q posts on 4chan and 8chan message boards is the nature of the many anons at crowd sourcing vs arguing as is the case most of social media .

    “WEAPONIZED AUTISTS ” is their claim to fame . As I understand that term they claim to be puzzle solvers . Crowd Sourcing is the future not facebook arguing over minutia .

    If you’re not a believer in the Q drops no point in ready any further …see ya !

    The Crowd souring I have seen speculates that a RED SPARROW ( ironic reference by Q to Jennifer Illuminati Lawrence movie of the same name ) of intel of exact GPS locations of Chlorine gas disguised as NO2 containers . Those containers being smuggled in to Syria by Cindy McCain’s charity , OPERATION SMILES .

    SEE REFERENCE in Q drop above dated April 8th . The reference to open source is our task to search for the information on the open web .

    ” Missiles only intel good ” and all the rest we’ve seen on the MSM including FOX IS NOT NEWS and especially Operation Mockingbird Alex Jones losing his ever loving mind is evidence that Trump is BATMAN taking on the entire cabal !!

    Syria reference on human trafficking . Obama & McCain’s ISIS trafficking in humans slaves to fun their terror and supply the HIVITES with kids !! https://www.state.gov/j/tip/rls/tiprpt/countries/2017/271293.htm

    Now we move to IRAN ..https://www.state.gov/j/tip/rls/tiprpt/countries/2017/271207.htm

    .the pablum and blather will continue until the TROLL MASTER removes the tentacles of the NWO from IRAN . N Korea has been liberated from the “CLOWNS ” (CIA reference by Q ) and now Syria .
