I guess things are back to normal then?


Yeah. There is a term for our kind of Normal isn't there.

I believe it's called S.N.A.F.U

Shoot first, ask questions later. That's the 'Murkan way.

I think we all should be questioning it, if I remember (maybe it was posted already) but didn't Trump tweet something about how wrong it is for us to get involved with Syria?

This is not what this country needs right now.

Up is down.


Everything has been turned on it's head

Some Trump supporters are praising this, even though it is what they voted against. Now they believe the wartime propaganda about Syria.

I guarantee if Hillary had won and done this they would be up in arms in outrage. They certainly wouldn't believe the "official" story about recent events in Syria.

An incredibly hostile Media is now singing Trump's praises, McCain, Graham, Hillary and co seem pretty happy, not surprising since this is what they wanted all along.

It's so surreal.

At least Rand Paul is sticking by his guns. He's the only one i've seen condemn this.



Yes, Rand is sticking to his guns.

And he referenced a tweet Trump made regarding this exact situation we are in now, back in 2013. That tweet can be found HERE.

This is another indication of why there is something very fishy about this. There is much more to it. I do think the "deep state", TBTB, elite globalists, etc etc whatever they are, are behind this. This just does NOT add up.

Sounds totally legal mate.

BTW Assad is well within legality to retaliate if he were to order his forces to do so. If America go into Syria, alone or with allies; It best be prepared.

What you see as an effort towards humanitarian safe zones and a safer ME, I see as a potential overthrowing of a legitimate government of a sovereign nation. No if's or but's about that. If Western ground forces go in then they won't be dealing with some ragtag terrorists, Hezbollah are fairly organized due to this "civil war" and even if Russia would be on board then you've still got Iran.

Nah, it isn't doom porn to say if such an invasion happened then you might just see the Middle East light up in fury... Are you confident Iran can be reigned in? Will Israel be attacked? Would Saudi troops be welcomed in Syria? What of the Turks in the north?

I mean, I'm glad you're looking to a bright side of this but in all honesty I feel what you suggest could go horribly wrong.

ok so far this is all i find on the release of the flight plan, it comes from the LA Times.
it shows the flight path with little dots, to tell the truth it's hard to follow them but if you view the image and enlarge it you can see it better and if you look at the photo you can see the cloud over the town in the right hand corner.

still looking for the video they kept on talking about on fox, nut it might not have been released yet, they did say that the flight path was and this appears to be it. maybe.


This Department of Defense map shows what it says is the flight path of a Syrian military plane over Khan Sheikhoun on April 4, the day of a chemical weapons attack. The military says this is the evidence that led them to conclude Syrian forces carried out the attack.

Well hopefully that's end of it.

I will hope that Trump's supporters hold his feet to the fire over this. But given some of the responses in this thread, I don't think that's likely. It makes me feel sick how quickly some people betray their own principles.

Trump campaigned on no action against Syria. A vocal opponent against Hillary's no fly zone. But this is worse. Far worse.

It's sad that some of the often more skeptical members have also accepted the mainstream media's word as gospel, simply because that is what Donald Trump has run with during his strange 360 policy loop in the space of 48 hours...

Hopefully nothing more will come of this, there will be no further strikes and no escalation from either party.

Although i'm not American, I did vocally support Trump during the election, since I was rather fearful of a Hillary Presidency. Precisely because of stuff like this.

Going forward I will be much more skeptical of his true intentions.

Negatives:
>Trump bombs Assad but not ISIS over what may have been a false flag.
>Trump appears to make a typical neocon puppet move.

Positives:
>Trump has restored vigilance and respect to the US that Obama ruined for being a weak beta.
>Other countries will think twice now to cross US when they know Trump will pull the trigger in a heartbeat.
>Trump has silenced the muh russia attacks by the media and neocons. This will boost his approval ratings.
> Media is now taking side of skeptics and calling for investigations into sarin gas attack.
>No war will start over this.

This could have the intended effect of the strikes which is the message.

It could also be the catalyst to start a world war. Still early.

Sadly, I don't think this was designed for "nothing more to come of it". It's clear to me that someone wants something to come of this. The question is, what is that something, and how far are they willing to go to get it?

Many of the 50 missle's could have been illiminated,if all 50 or 45 made the target
100% Russia was in on it.
You know,blow up some of Syria's old aircraft so they buy new ones from us.

I hope they really do have 100% irrefutable proof, and that cooler heads will prevail from the other side. Because as of right now I dont have a good feeling.

Realisation that I did not know his true intentions is what scared the hell out of me until november.

Since then I don't mind so much, knowing I was genuinely in fear of something that seems somehow inescapable.

There is no reasonable way to defend Trump's actions here. This just doesn't make any sense.

This is reckless, dangerous.

The best thing he could do is stop now and not do anything else before this escalates out of control.


From what I've gathered, Russia was indeed notified and even (before the strike if I remember correctly) said their support of Assad wasn't unconditional. If that wasn't the case, we'd be hearing a lot more from Russia, especially if there were Russian forces at the base at the time of the strike.

These chemical weapons were supposed to have been destroyed anyway, which means either Russia didn't do a good job overseeing their destruction as promised, were complicit in allowing Assad to keep some, or Assad pulled a fast one.

Looks to me like a single surgical strike on weapons that shouldn't have existed to begin with after 2013, to show Assad that he can't cross red lines anymore. This does not mean we're at war, the establishment has won out, or that President Trump wants a repeat of the last decade.
