Are we back in the mode of once again fighting for and against both sides in Syria?

Styx: My Response to the Syria Strikes: Unhelpful, but Part of a Larger Situation

Summary: Russia blinked. As we withdraw, we just demonstrated that 1) we can return at a moment's notice, 2) we can do whatever we want and 3) Russia will not retaliate.

Big deal it was accomplished, just as the ship’s mission under Bush was accomplished.

Perfectly executed mission, zero casualties on our side, devastating to Assad’s WMD capacity and overwhelming proof that American strength and leadership has returned and that President Trump will not hesitate to prove it.

Trump and our military hit it out of the park, both tactically and strategically.

Assad is out of power? Russia is withdrawing? The Mullahs are surrendering? Christians can worship freely?

Just what mission is accomplished? In fact which mission has ever been accomplished in the ME in the last 4000 years?

Assad is a pimp.

Erdogan is the one we will really need to worry about.

I think the idea behind Trump’s action was this:

Whether Assad would use the banned weaponry at his disposal, or whether the ‘rebels’ overran the storage facilities and then used those same weapons to attack, the most logical step was to ELIMINATE THE BANNED WEAPONS and the FACILITIES that produce them.

It’s not a case of taking anyone’s side in Syria, it’s a case of removing the weapons/facilities that everyone was saying were not there.

Since people like John Kerry and Putin guaranteed those facilities were not there, not producing chem weapons, TRUMP simply made it true. They are no longer there.
