    Listen to your President's officials, who have been changing their opinions on that. Again.

    Perhaps Nikki Haley and her boss are not singing from the same hymn sheet?

    No peace in Syria until Assad is ousted, says Nikki Haley..
    Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, has said that she sees regime change in Syria as one of the Trump administrationís priorities in the country wracked by civil war.

    First of all, it's not like we can endorse Assad. Assad is a murdering thug who has caused all kinds of problems in the ME. He's one step below ISIS. But taking him out brings nothing. Those people will continue to kill each other.
    Second, what has the UN ever done about any war? The UN building is a giant sucking machine for the US taxpayer. It needs to go before Assad goes.
    Third, the missile attack sure shut down the Trump/Putin bromance noise from the left. hahaha

    So w/ a few missiles Trump has saved babies and shut up the Dims. That's brilliance!!

    There's been huge periods of peace in the Middle East that have not only been a vault of ancient European civilisations' collected knowledge, whilst Europe was busy being quite dark, but vast empires have been borne from that region producing some of the most remarkable artefacts of human civilisation.

    Read some history before making such a daft comment as your example above.

    Not so much. I think most on the left know the main reason for the attack was an attempt to do exactly that. Plus, if the miserable creature really cared a bit about the "babies", he'd open up immigration instead of keeping them out.

    That's twisted logic Garret. Why ship babies halfway around the world when there are so many like minded countries right there?

    Yup. Mohammed was born 538 years AFTER Jesus' crucifixion, soooo . . .

    If Bloofie is talking about ordinary, run-of-the-mill 'killing each other', then it is 1) unremarkable, and 2) nothing to do with Islam.

    He's got a point

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_mnHIKs4b2E



    McCaffrey: The question is has the Trump white house written down the political objectives they are trying to achieve through military force? And if we're signaling displeasure to killing people with chemical weapons, there will be a consequence of that strike that will achieve no decisive results in this ongoing war. A half million have been murdered. Self-propelled artillery tanks, AK-47s. Now we're going to respond with military power over 100 people murdered with chemical weapons? I'm not too sure there's clarity in what they're trying to achieve.

    Matthews: What would be the reason for a military person in the situation or wherever at the Pentagon to recommend, if it is such a limited strike, what would be the argument for it except, you know, P.R.?

    McCaffrey: Well, I don't think there is an argument. I think it would be a mistake to conduct limited political signaling using naval air power or F-16s flying out of someplace in the region. I do believe there's a chance that Mattis will table—the secretary of defense—an option to eliminate the Syrian air force. The Russians will not confront U.S. Air force and naval air in air combat. We probably would kill some of them, but I think they would probably step aside. Now, the consequences of that, though, might be Iranian revolutionary guards killing soldiers, U.S. Soldiers in Iraq. Hezbollah going after the Israelis. So military power invites unknown consequences when you carry it out. The question might be, why don't we consider significant humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees in border regions of Turkey and Jordan and Iraq, in lieu of ineffective military strikes.

    Being without any sort of apparent empathy or apparent practical knowledge about helping other people in need you wouldn't know, and, as per your hole in your knowledge of the history of the region, I really couldn't be bothered attempting to explain the blindingly obvious to you.

    Let me get this straight.

    The population of the US is ~320M.

    If 160,000,000 US citizens had been driven from their homes, with about 8,000,000 of those murdered outright by Donald F Trumpco, and another 50 freakin' MILLION of them starved to death/collateral damage from Donnie-boy's sick, twisted need to be 'President', would you look me in the eye and presume to tell me that I need to learn how to fish?

    Really?

    "It's easier being an arson than an architect"


    http://www.stonekettle.com

    You ever ask yourself why one doesn’t “become president” by feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, or healing the sick?

    You ever wonder why a man only “becomes president” by commanding the military into action?

    I mean, war is easy.

    It’s always easier to go to war than not.

    War is always easier than diplomacy.

    Burning it down is easy.

    Destruction is easy.

    Revolution is easy.

    It’s far easier to be an arsonist than an architect.

    Some on here act as if Trump started the war.
    But as BobbyS pointed out it sure shut down the lib media's Trump/Russia bromance talk. hahaha
    And it put Putin's swagger on his burkenstocks. And we know how ridiculous burkenstocks are/look.

    You have to remember we have troops over there, , The bad guys will think twice about Useing chemicals again...

    Countries around the world applaud this action.

    Only our liberals are pizzed, Anything that makes DT look good makes them mad regardless of the safety of our troops and nation.

    The Republican Party is the demonic Throne of Satan, whether it is in charge or not.

    I have not seen or heard from a 'conservative', much less a 'Conservative' in a loooooooooooong time.
