Hypocrisy abounds on Trump’s attack on Syrian air base

Can a limited punitive response, via an air attack, to the use of chemical weapons be a good idea when proposed by one president but a bad idea when proposed by another? I doubt it.

    I still think that the USA should stay out of the Mid East.
    Let them KILL each other.
    Makes these fucking Muslims happy.

      Well, happy muslims, it is a kind of a foreign aid program.

    The first thing a cynic would want to know is how close were these expended “missiles” to their “best before dates” and was their updating or disposal fully
    costed in the appropriate upcoming budget?

    Lots of places to use them where the Islamic terrorists don’t have any air cover or SAM defences.

    The only hypocrisy that I see are the never-Trumpers singing Trumps praise after he goes full neocon and starts dropping bombs on Syria. The fact is there has been very little opposition to Trump’s stupid and illegal actions in Syria. With a handful of exceptions all the democrats support him and likewise all republicans love him (for now) with a couple of exceptions. The fact is Trump was duped into an act of war on the basis of a obvious false flag. I don’t admire much about Obama but I did respect the fact that he did not fall for the 2013 false flag (although he came close). His CIA director told Obama that it was not a “slam dunk” that Assad gassed his own people which caused Obama to rethink an attack. Now that Trump has shown how easily he can be manipulated by fake news reports of gas attacks it is only a matter of time before more similar false flags are staged. When Trump bombed the airbase killing brave soldiers who fought against ISIS and two small children – Trump joined the ranks of the War criminals. He proved he is no better than Obama, Bush 1 & 2, and Clinton.

    CNN’s Fareed Zakaria: Were Obama Still President, He Would Have Ordered “Similar If Not Identical” Strike In Syria

    As I have already commented on the subject I think Trump was wrong here. I think on his own he would not have done this, but was advised by the wrong people that it was the thing to do. I say this because of the lack of evidence that Asad did this in the first place, and secondly it was not in keeping with his contract with the American people to make America great again. Still what was done was done, and I part company with those now claiming it was illegal or whatever. I just still think it was not the right thing to do based on the lack of evidence, and that it played into the hands of ISIS, the terrorists.
