Trump’s Statement on Air Strike Against Syria
TRUMP: “My fellow Americans, on Tuesday, Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilian using a deadly nerve agent Assad choked out the lives of helpful men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many…even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack.
No child of God should ever suffer such horror. Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.
There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the chemical weapons convention and ignored the urging of the UN Security Council. Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically.
As a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies. Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.
We ask for God’s wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world. We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who have passed and we hope that as long as America stands for justice then peace and harmony will, in the end, prevail
Goodnight and God bless America and the entire world. Thank you.”
Trump supporters embraced his candidacy because he promised to put America First. Tonight, he put Israel first by responding with violence to a false flag gas attack that the press blamed on Syrian president Bashar Assad.
One gauge of public opinion revolves around Twitter. At least some Trump supporters, many of whom had been Tweeting at the President to avoid war (including me), are not pleased.
Political analyst Jonathan Langdale, whom I’ve grown to respect a great deal, opines that regime change in Syria is a precursor to military action against Iran.
Unlike Paul Joseph Watson, I’m not off the Trump train yet because I like to think things out slowly and carefully. However, I’d like to know why Trump responded to such an obvious false flag.
Is he compromised or was he a wolf in sheep’s clothing (an agent of Israel) all along. Or is there something else going on that none of us understands?
