Quote
President Trump ordered a cruise missile strike against Syria Thursday, saying "no child of God should ever suffer" the horror of the chemical weapons attack Syria launched on its own people.

Trump ordered the strike against Syria early Friday local time in retaliation for the chemical weapons attack that killed 86 people on Tuesday, he said.

Quite the delayed reaction to the Syrian chemical attacks.  And pointless as well since Russia is propping up Assad's regime, so this attack won't weaken the military enough for the rebels to achieve victory.  Such actions will almost certainly raise tensions with Russia.  Pointless provocation.

It's hard to figure out much of any positives at all from this and a lot of negatives come readily to mind.  I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Here's the pickle in the pudding.... Assad didn't start out completely messed up. Russia has a big interest in helping Syria as much as possible.

The biggest reserve of natural gas is under the Black Sea. Iran has been extracting it on the north side and running it through a pipe to Russia. Russia uses some of the natural gas and sells the rest to Europe. It is a critical part of financing the Russian economy; and a big piece of Iran's economy. The gulf states made a plan to extract gas on the south side and run a pipe to Europe through the gulf states and Syria to Europe. All of the states on the route agreed to the plan except Syria because Assad was on friendly terms with Russia. The gulf states offered to pay the U.S. the total cost of the war if Obama invaded Syria (must be a lot of money in that gas). If the gas pipe through Syria is finished Russia will suffer. On the other side, if the pipe goes through American oil men will be making a bigger profit.

I wonder why the gulf states didnt make a route for the pipe that doesnt go through Syria when they found out Syria didnt want to play.

Persian Gulf.  The Black Sea story is a different story.

This shouldn't be a surprise.  Obama never finished the war in the Middle East.  Trump to the rescue.  If we end up in nuclear exchange with Russia, it will be Obama's fault.

well when people thought Trump and Putinpie were best of friends, this might sink that battleship.

Though TJ Kirk raised a point in his video on it, Assads bene doing this shit to his people for years now, trump even knew about the gas attack and didn't respond, not until pictures of the gas attack came to him, and he commissioned swift action after seeing the pictures.

Think that fear of having a crazy guy with his finger on the launch codes have just been proven more valid then people thought.

In 2013 T.rump said Obama should have gone to Congress first. Today that's still true, just that T.rump isn't Obama, so he doesn't have to pay by the rules he expects other people to follow.

Anyone got any recommendations as to where I can watch the first barrage of nuclear explosions? I need to at least be able to finish a bottle of whiskey before I get consumed.
