Thanks to a heads up from Jane, I watched Trump’s speech last night. I liked the tone, the wording, the emphasis that The United States is NOT interested in fixing the world’s problems. So why did we strike Syria? Here’s my two cents.
This is all about Russia and Iran, the two countries funding Syria’s chemical attack. The US, the UK and France (but why not Germany?) want to send a clear message to Putin. Also, after Obama drew so many red lines that were never followed up, Trump wants to let the world know, that with our allies, we will draw lines and mean it.
The left is already saying Trump chose last night to strike to deflect the media storyline from Comey and Cohen. Derangement Syndrome.
An archive of Susan Rice’s tweets when she was National Security Advisor said this in 2014. Oops. Not exactly, but then again, Rise was sure the video caused Benghazi.
It’s always worrisome to send our military in harm’s way but these fly boys know what they are doing, have trained to do stealth tactical maneuvers, and I bet my last dollar were 1000% prepared. Still, one always worries there will be casualties.
The left too is already calling this WW3, and asks what will we do to help Syria rebuild. Honestly, I’m not making this stuff up.
Meanwhile, let’s end on a totally happy note. I love this and would so do it if I ran across it in the city sidewalk. I’m thrilled to see people still KNOW what hopscotch is.
Happy Sunny Saturday before the rainy and cold Sunday and Monday.
