American interests weren’t strengthened by Trump’s missile attack on Syria

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

President Trump's missile attack on a Syrian air base was an enormous mistake. On Friday's show, I debated Gregg Norman of the Middle East Forum, who says it was the right thing for Trump to do:

Keith Barnes I like your attitude.

Who says this caused dead children? Who supplied those photos? The media – can’t trust them? Maybe those photos are from another battlefield, another date, or maybe they are not even victims of a chemical attack.

LIZA ROSIE; My opinion, President Trump will, in the near future, will set up a personal meeting with Putin. This will be a fireside chat kind of get together, where they can mull over the problems of the world.

Putin would like nothing more than to be accepted as a World Leader who has the ear of the US and the UK, etc.

I hope someone knows what they are doing. I can’t follow any of it anymore. Too confusing ans stressful. The only thing I know for sure is that we are being lied to, or at least given a very choreographed version of the truth.

My main question is: Was Trump compromised by these new occupiers in the White House and or is he really just making a brilliant move we just can’t understand yet, or a bit of both? I think it is safe to say that things are not what they seem.

Why is it we see lots of writhing children when the narrative suits the globalist warmongers, but we never see pictures of the women and children brutally murdered in the name of Islam. What about the six year old that was ripped limb from limb by a speeding truck,and lay on the bridge in front of the British Parliament buildings in London? Or Sweden or Germany, or or or. Or the babies swung like cats, eyes gouged out by Isis. There may be dead children from something in Syria, (many showed signs of blunt head trauma), they may have been gassed,but by who? As Bravo Zulu pointed out in another thread. Handling victims of sarin gassing without gloves can be deadly, there are many pictures, no gloves.
I don’t know, beats me.
Deborah I am confused about Assad ‘subsiding’ ISIS through oil sales. That is mind boggling if true.

As I mentioned on the original airing of this video. Trump was just sending a message to all the Western Worlds potential enemy’s.

59 Cruise Missiles have the explosive power to have put that Airfield out of action for at least six months. In fact, aircraft were taking off and landing within twelve hours of the strike. The Missiles had most of their explosives removed or were set to explode in the air, causing minor damage. Radar and Radio Transmision was still working.

Trump was telling Putin and the Death Cult, called Islam. My name is not Obama, do not tread on my Tail.

Trump could well be a Genius.

The other benefit is that it finally puts the fake narrative, concerning Trump being complicit with Putin , to rest. Even Rachel Maddow of CNN appears to have taken off her tin foil hat.

I think Trump gained some “street cred” worldwide. He did what Obama implied he would do. I don’t think Russian aircraft are going to be buzzzing US warships for a while. Hopefully Trump was just throwing a high inside fastball to back the opposition off the plate.

A strong message was sent out to Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. So therefore, it was good for the states.

Trump says more action might be coming in Syria, but he had better tread slowly as Ezra is right about there not being anyone to replace him. Look what happened in Egypt with Mubarack.

BTW-when someone ends up flattening Damascus another biblical prophecy will have been fulfilled.

Lots of armchair opinions with some good points on both sides. A message was sent to Assad, Putin, Iran, China and North Korea in one blow. Perhaps keeping them all not too comfortable with the US regaining some confidence is a good thing. Everything in the Middle East is complicated and nothing is predictable. Regime change should not be an immediate US priority that is for sure however Trump having taken out the only protection for one of the largest remaining Christian communities he better have a plan to make up for it. It does seem like a really stupid thing to do for Assad to use chemical weapons at this point but then again he is a madman because he’s done it before.

Nobody has a clue whether it was a good thing or a bad thing. Any time I hear “experts” going on about what is going to play out in the middle east, I can’t help but think of climate change “modeling”.

Give me a break. Any other government means Russia says bye bye to it’s base. Not going to happen. Period. Exclamation point. Any other government means “Jihadis”. Not going to happen. Period. Exclamation point.

Interesting how all the usual suspects (lib-left chicken hawks) are praising Trump dumping 100 million $$ worth of ordnance on a non-strategic target – yet the chorus of voices for getting out of the regime change foreign policy and militarily meddling in affairs that are not our concern are populists.

Now if Trump had bumped those Tommies on Kim Jong Un’s apartment, it might have been justified.
