Let’s be honest here. Trump no more cares about those beautiful little Syrian babies than he does about dumping coal dust into rivers and killing beautiful little American babies.
Trump’s attack on a Syrian airbase damaged six defunct airplanes and a cafeteria. The Syrians were using the runways last night to mount further attacks. It seems that the fifty nine tomahawks that were launched at the cost of one millions dollars each, weren’t really meant to knockout the airbase. This was simply a show of force and it was designed to deflect from the Russian scandal, his plummeting ratings, and show the world that Trump was not in bed with Putin. (Trump also has shares in Raytheon which manufactures the tomahawks).
It seems to have worked, cable news was swooning over Trump’s first real presidential act. It was all rather sickening really.
However, many of his base are up in arms about his abandonment of his isolationist policies and a good few more are very angry about the seeming move to oust Bannon.
As Dan Rather says…
We are going to have to wait and see what Trump does next. The very fact that even his inner circle can’t tell from day to day what his position on anything is should fill us all with foreboding.
