Trump campaigned on not getting involved in Mideast. Said it always helps our enemies & creates more refugees. Then he saw a picture on TV.–Ann Coulter, April 7, 2017
Is this a one-off bombing or is it the start of degrading Syria’s communications and anti-aircraft defenses? A move that is a fig-leaf for a no-fly zone.
Russia will have counter measures since it cannot afford to lose its sole outpost in the Mediterranean. Syria which has taken delivery of the Russian S-300, anti-aircraft system, can cause all manner of mischief, along with its key ally, Iran.
The one-off bombing was akin to poking a hornets nest, and the Pentagon knows this, and-winky winky–the Jared Kushners of the world that surround the president. Forget the big infrastructure rebuild. The Donald or the “clueless one” just stepped into a world of hurt. He should instead invoke the Defense Production Act and begin converting civil production into war production.
Why Barack Obama cleared the way for Trump to seize all possible resources under the Defense Authorization Act, which authorizes unlimited appropriations for Overseas Contingency Operations. This is to say, both globalist Republicans and Democrats were always planning a new war in the Middle East.
Again, the Bush Administration claim that real men march to Tehran still stands. People who once thought I was one brick short of load for suggesting we were aiming for a shooting war with Russia. Well, they are laughing no more!
