Trump opens the door to military action in Syria after branding sarin massacre an ‘affront to humanity’

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that it is now his responsibility to resolve the humanitarian and political crisis in Syria as he opened the door to military action in the country.

Trump upped the ante in a Rose Garden press conference after having said earlier in the day that the the chemical weapons attack is a ‘terrible affront to humanity.’

‘My attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much,’ Trump declared, suggesting with the statement that he may be reconsidering his directive to US diplomats to take their focus off removing Bashar al-Assad from power.

    Oh. For Christs sake.
    I am so sick and tired of this middle East shit.

    • Trump! Islam is the problem. No part of Islam is correct. Everywhere Islam exists, society is a crap hole.

      Get the US out of the Islamic cult.

      Put an army of shrinks on deconstructing the Islamic cult.

      Start here:

        But that’s not what’s happening is it? Trump is raging against Assad, (beside Israel the only secular state in the region) on the word of jihadis that he committed an atrocity against civilians on the territory they control. If Trump had any brains he would have expressed sadness at the death of innocent children and civilians and called for an impartial investigation.

          It’s on the word of U.S. aerial surveillance staff covering Syria. Apparently, a particular type of small aircraft used only by Assad and Russians was seen overflying the area moments prior to the event.
          Some say it was Russia in retaliation for metro bombing. I don’t see what Assad has to gain by this.

    Stand Down.

    In the Shiite vs Sunni war the moral choice is to cheer and to hope that there is no winner.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Stay out of it. Unless you have all the facts, you’re guessing who did this.

    • Millie_Woods

      Who knows if anything even happened.

      • Alain

        Indeed it looks like a pali wood production.

        • Surele Surele

          was just talking to my husband about a possible paliwood production. or, did you see the vid. by Stefan Molyneux?

          • Alain

            I don’t know about a vid. by S. Molyneux. It is only I have witnessed far too much invented fake drama by the Arabs where the dead come to life afterwards only to repeat the performance in yet another news story to accept that this time it is real.

  • Millie_Woods

    There’s no crisis in Syria or North Korea demanding US intervention. This is a ploy by the powers-that-be to distract Trump from his mission to disrupt the new world order project. Build the fucken wall already!

    • Alain

      The Establishment is still calling the shots. Why is that still the case?

      • FactsWillOut

        My guess is threats against his family.

    • Clink9

      Douchebag McCain is creaming his panties now wishing Trump would get into Syria in a big way.

  • RottyLover

    Trump is listening to the wrong people. Most notably his daughter and son in law.

    • Alain

      I have no idea but have read from others that both are liberals. That could explain a lot.

  • Flyboy

    Less bluster and more evidence required here.

  • Slickfoot

    No! No no no.

  • Oracle9

    Why the default to Assad, knee-jerk fashion, against all logic?

    Assad is not the problem, but it’s looking like Trump may be the one to finish off the entire Middle East once and for all. This is bad.

  • FactsWillOut

    It seems that to buck the NWO is to be a Kamikaze, which Trump is not.
    “Nice family you got there, Don.”

  • ismiselemeas

    The gas attack was so obviously fake I’m astonished that anyone has fallen for it. The Pali ambulance news department were working overtime on this one.

  • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

    Blatant false flag.

    Why the hell would Assad pull such a stunt that would get worldwide condemnation
    even from his supporters.

    Trump needs to calm down and find out what really happened before making statements like that.

  • Surele Surele

    And quoting lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser) from four hours ago: Why the hell would Assad pull such a stunt that would get worldwide condemnation
    even from his supporters.
