Hersh presents a picture of Trump as a reactionary and narcissistic watcher of television news, anxiously awaiting the ability to be seen as a hero or at least the focus of attention. He writes essentially that Trump saw reports of the deaths of civilians in Khan Sheikhoun and made the decision right then and there to bomb Syria, a decision he stuck to even after all the intelligence surrounding the chemical attack had been shown to him and it was demonstrated that the Syrian government did not use chemical weapons. According to Hersh, the intelligence community, the military, and national security team were all frightened that the reckless Trump would push us into World War Three and thus sought to guide him into launching an attack that showed force but wasn’t enough to actually create the pretext for Armageddon. Hersh paints a picture that shows a military and intelligence community telling the Russians before the missiles were launched so that a confrontation could be avoided.

I guess Putin in the end might even miss Hillary Clinton





“It was a totally Trump show from beginning to end,” the senior adviser said. “A few of the president’s senior national security advisers viewed the mission as a minimized bad presidential decision, and one that they had an obligation to carry out. But I don’t think our national security people are going to allow themselves to be hustled into a bad decision again. If Trump had gone for option three, there might have been some immediate resignations.”


So the bombing was a Trump show. He was advised that they had absolutely no evidence that Syria did a chemical attack yet Trump bombed them anyway

Please read article for the rest...very good and very shocking

Raytheon who manufactures the 59 Tomahawk Missiles used in the US Strike had it's stock value increase by $5 billion after the attack

Someone was very happy about that I'm sure.

We already knew this.

Well I certainly didn't need Seymour Hersch to tell me, anyways.

It worked for a little while.


CNN’s Fareed Zakaria was perhaps the most fawning on-air pundit. He declared that “Donald Trump became the President of the United States,” calling it a “big moment.” He lavished Trump with praise for recognizing the importance of international norms and embracing a “broader moral and political purpose.”

It makes me shudder to think the president would order somewhere to be bombed for the political capital it provides. And raises the question in my mind if whether or not he may start a war to win the next election.

It was the day that Trump became another puppet president.

.... If indeed he wasn't already.

I doubt a lot of his die hards would care. In this country, the poor are indoctrinated to believe it's a noble thing to die for the rich.

Well considering everyone has had a hard on for unloading munitions in Syria, I guess everyone is freaking happy now.

The rebels, the rebel rebels, ISIS sissy girls, Terrorists everywhere and scum bags galore.

Just stop.

Build a freaking space ship or something.

So isn't Hershey claiming Obama had no evidence that Syria used chemical weapons as well?

The hypocritcal feigned outrage on display here is hilarious but not unexpected.

how exactly did all the news media get told that Assad had gassed his own people, and how did the IC know the "truth", yet the people weren't told any different?

I do realize that most of us have seen the writing on the wall with Syria for some time (long before Trump even decided to run) and realize that most things that seem like a false flag likely will be as a pretext to aggression.

Obama tried several times to get enough dirt to stick to the wall with regards to Syria. This was a plan for a while and has to do with Oil and a pipeline. It's cute to try to blame this on Trump, but reality is a different beast.

Good for you, but maybe some don't know or don't want to know, and a lot of people need reminding and confirmation.

Unfortunately, this sort of crap didn't start with Trump, and it won't end with him.

We invaded Iraq knowing full well that the claims of them having chemical weapons were probably false.

We conducted drone strikes all throughout the Obama years, killing far more innocent civilians than we did terrorists -- and recruiting far more terrorists than we killed.

So ignore the information and deflect to Obama. Wish I could say I'm surprised but it's to be expected at this point.
