I think people are confused. Some seem to think that if you support Trump, you have to support his actions in Syria.

I don't like what happened, but like you, I also trust General Mattis.

Because it's always good to trust someone called Mad Dog in sensitive global political aggressions.

Allow me too correct you on something, many American voters fear of Hillary was not that she would lead us into WW3, it was that she would lead us into WW3 and proceed to fight it in a manner other than one leading to a clear US victory. Make no mistake about this, I am neither pro nor anti war... I am of the mindset "if we do this, we pull no punches, we yield to no foreign pressure, we worry about no 'UN consensus', we simply fight it like we own it and leave nothing standing or living in our wake. Hillary sure as hell wasn't the candidate to do that, Trump is still likely to approach conflicts in that manner, however.

I frankly don't give a damn about dead Syrians one way or the other, bomb Assad for gaming his own, don't bomb Assad for gassing his own, it matters not to me... but whatever actions this country makes had better make fiscal sense AND only involve US boots on Syrian soil if our intent is to rain down fire and brimstone to win a war, not some ridiculous loser strategy of "winning hearts and minds."

In this, I'm going to disagree. Judging a guy by an affectionate nickname given to a commander by his Marines, is hardly a case against Mattis and his abilities. In fact, Mattis is the only sane, Trustworthy one in the Chump administration, and is the only one I have any faith in to do his job well.

I'd actually look up and learn some stuff about Mattis. The guy is opposed to torture and has said it doesn't work, he generally supports the idea of a two state solution for Israel, and is probably the only one in the administration I trust to handle his job.

hahahahahahahahah

Sorry if WW3 starts it does not matter if it was Trump or Hillary that fought it. It would not matter how it was fought either because either way both the USA and Russia and likley the entire would be wiped out.

There would be no US "victory" or Russian "Victory" just 7 billion radioactive corpses.

Too bad we couldn't have John Kerry...who served in Vietnam.
HE was the erudite political diplomat whom managed to negotiate Assad to destroy 100% of Syria's chemical weapons, donchaknow.

Because you never play the best card in your hand as your opener. Syria today is thinking "uh oh, this mofo isn't going to just sit and harp against us, he's actually willing to act unilaterally..." Smart money says Trump didn't *need* to bomb Assad directly to get his point across. I wouldn't want to be the fat little Korean child king today, however... that boy may well find a cruise missile through his palace roof soon.

Don't get me wrong, I am not a pacifist. I was a Goldwater Republican because of his war hawk ways.

I am not particularly anti-war - - - but, I am anti-stupid.

If I actually thought this was a strategic move by "amateur" Trump, I might think differently about the whole thing.

Nope... that was me.

See for yourself

Apparently Kerry, Putin and Assad read ATS.

No fan of Trump, I think he's an idiot and a conman but am open to the possibility there are forces at work here manipulating events to force him to react in a way that supports their geopolitical interests so he can take the fall for all of it.

That "loser strategy" you refer to of "winning hearts and minds" was quite effectively employed by Alexander the Great who conquered much of the known world in his time.

The strength of this strategy is that unles you win the hearts and minds of your opposition, you will be forced to slaughter everyone

Everyone

Who oppose you.

Fighters, yes, but also their families, their friends, their allies. Every man, woman, and child, young and old, rich and poor, any and everyone sick or injured who might survive their affliction.

Because if you do not slaughter them all, one or more of them might just overcome their fear of you, fueled by their resentment and grief over their loss, to learn to hate you.

And that hate easily becomes a thirst for retribution and revenge.

Hahaha, thank you. I mean, I was a little surprised and a little disappointed. Then I had a snack. If he sinks the Russian frigate, then I'll be concerned.
