Trump Fires Missiles w/o Congress—Suddenly Cares About Syrians? No. He’s Found the #1 Distraction

by Leslie Salzillo –

And here we go.

Earlier this week, chemical warfare was used to kill over 80 Syrian innocent civilians (including children) many who suffocated to death. Vladimir Putin and/or Syria’s dictator Assad are allegedly responsible. Donald Trump is under critical investigation for his ties with Putin. And now suddenly, SUDDENLY Trump cares about the lives of Syrian Muslims after banning them from entering the United States for life-saving refuge and after vilifying them for over a year.

On Thursday night Trump fired dozens of missiles onto a Syrian airbase without Congressional approval. It was about an hour after dining with China’s president at Trump’s resort in Florida (at the expense of American tax-payers  — while enriching himself and his family).

Of course, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley prepped the world for this at the United Nations on Wednesday with her photos and statement, “We might have to take action.”

Trump pounds and pumps his chest. He’s ready — he wants war. It’s the perfect distraction to his Russian investigation, the perfect distraction to push through his administration’s agenda, the perfect distraction for the Republican GOP to push through their agenda. How do you distract and win more public support? You use fear and you start a war.

The New York Times reports on Thursday night:

WASHINGTON — President Trump said Thursday night that the United States had carried out a missile strike in Syria in response to the Syrian government’s chemical weapons attack this week that killed more than 80 civilians.

“Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the air base in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched,” Mr. Trump said in remarks at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. “It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.”

The airstrikes were carried out less than an hour after the president concluded a dinner with Xi Jinping, the president of China, at Mar-a-Lago, sending an unmistakably aggressive signal about Mr. Trump’s willingness to use the military power at his disposal.

Mr. Trump authorized the strike with no congressional approval for the use of force, an assertion of presidential authority that contrasts sharply with the protracted deliberations over the use of force by his predecessor, former President Barack Obama.

He is trying to dupe America and the world into believing he cares about Syrians and Muslim children.


Donald Trump cares about Donald Trump. The anti-Trump military, judiciary, law enforcement and the people’s resistance need to unify, take action and have him removed. Impeachment proceedings could take years. He’s destroying everything that is/was great about America. And now he’s taking lives — because he can and because it’s the perfect distraction.
