Photos of the Day: Syria Becomes the Latest "Target" for U.S. Tomahawk Missiles...

Just thought I'd share these pics that were released by the Pentagon last night showing Tomahawk missiles being launched from U.S. warships to supposedly hit a Syrian airbase that was used to deploy aircraft that carried out a heinous chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians three days ago. I say 'supposedly' because based on reports that I've read online (yes, I know that the key word here is 'online'), President Trump went out of his way to not cause any real damage to the al-Shayrat military airfield to prevent antagonizing Trump's good friend and puppet master in Moscow, Vladimir Putin. According to said reports, Putin wanted to help Trump get back on his feet after his approval rating dipped to historic levels by creating an event that would distract the media from continuing to focus on Trump's ties to Russia. (Word has it that Trump's rating dipped to 35% only after 74 days in office, whereas it took the rating of fellow GOP'er George W. Bush about 1,947 days to fall that low. Bill Clinton and Barack Obama's ratings have never sunk to that level...because Democrats!)


What better way to create a distraction than to have Bashar al-Assad, Syria's own leader and Putin's other puppet, stage a chemical attack on his own people at the behest of Putin that would force Trump to react? By giving a military response to such an atrocity, Trump would supposedly receive the sympathy of the same mainstream media that lambasted him for the last two or so years. And this is despite the fact that Trump wanted to avenge the "beautiful" Syrian babies that he tried through two failed Muslim bans to keep out of the United States. And I won't even delve into other reports mentioning that Trump has been secretly amassing U.S. ground forces inside Syria weeks before last night's missile strike.


Just how much more does Trump's approval rating need to drop for him to send our soldiers into battle on Syrian soil to fight anyone other than the Islamic State (who is the foe we should be focusing on) as a way to take our attention away from the fact that he's a terrible president doing Putin's bidding? I could type a lot more on this charade that Trump and Putin are trying to play, but I won't. Don't know if I should hope or dread that Trump will finally prove to the fools who voted for him that Trump's presidency poses as an existential threat not just to America but to the whole world in general... We shall see. Or hopefully we won't.
