I'm sure a one day's worth of planning was the best option (roll eyes)
Bashar al-Assad uses sarin gas against his own People (babies included...for an Evil Act does not discriminate)
p.s. Sarin gas that he supposedly no longer had, according to John Kerry.
President Trump responds by giving a direct order to take out the aircraft utilized in carrying out the horrific attack, with pinpoint accuracy.
No. My preference is that we stay out of other countries business unless US interests are directly involved - truth is that's not too often.
Neither, I don't disagree with the attack, but I disagree with the way he went about it.
He, trump did not seek the approval of the Congress which is a Constitutional requirement (not that this administration cares about Constitutional requirements for/under any circumstance) when attacking another country (act of war). Maybe he, trump thought that Congress would do to him the same thing they did to President Obama when he asked for their approval to go into Syria after ISIS and the Congress ignored President Obama as if he never asked, and the Congress made the general public believe that President Obama did not ask.
Hmm...despite Trump went to military school, that was over 50 years ago and he also never really have any real military experience, not sure whether he is actually qualify for been a General. In addition I don't think middle eastern issue is exactly his strong suit, I think it is better if he leave it up to the professional Generals to do their job and for him act on the advice of the Generals. I think Trump should focus on internal affair such as fixing the economy instead (something Obama, simply didn't have time to do, due to been caught up trying to clean George Bush's mess in the Middle East)
While I agree with you, it makes you think, would Trump give up enough of the ego to allow someone with more knowledge on the topic to give advice and he take it?
Well Trump is a stubborn old man, that I agree. but he ain't stupid, so maybe he will still listen expert advice when needed. I guess we just need to wait and see.
That's pretty much all we can do anyway.
I agree with Trumps attack on Syria. The Obama administration left America looking weak with his politically motivated foreign policy, including threats to Syria he had no intention of backing up.
Tyrants around the world have been flexing their muscles with an assurance that the United States would stand by and let them do as they pleased.
I believe the timing of the strike against Syria ( on the eve of the summit with the Chinese president) was intended to send a message to China and North Korea that the United States would now move to protect its interests.
Although you don't want to needlessly provoke a country to war, its dangerous for the US (the only true world leader) to appear weak. Our enemies for the most part are pragmatic and will only respect our strength and will only engage in military action that they believe will succeed.
You have a point. Part of my problem is that he tried to ban from entering the country, the people who were trying to escape the dictator we ended up bombing anyway. Thanks for answering. Opposing views with actual discussion instead of fighting are
Nobody knows it all, we don't have the top secret intell that they have, so it's hard to say.
It was a non event, more like a dirty look than anything else. A president is commander in chief of the armed forces, and we haven't had congress even declare a war since WWII. Congress is gridlocked and it would be futile to ask them to decide where to have lunch, much less something to do with military action.
This was a police matter and shouldn't be involving the congress.
In the long term, I think that we should have learned our lesson from Iraq and Saddam Hussein. Leave Assad and the Russians alone fighting ISIS, and ISIL.
