President Trump on Friday night “launched precision strikes” in Syria. Along with the U.S., Britain and France also responded during the hour of bombing on three main targets. A scientific research center near Damascus, a storage facility west of Homs and a storage facility and command post near Homs.
This was all in response to last weekends alleged chemical attack that killed 42 and wounded 500. The White Helmets, part of the Syrian civil defense org. was in the area after the attack. While they say there was evidence of a chemical attack, they don’t know what side it came from. President Assad’s army were marching in to claim victory, so the question remains why would Assad gas his own troops? The Rebels on the other hand have been known to use chemical weapons themselves during the 7-year civil war. The same militant rebels who would use women and children as meat shields to put the blame on the attackers, so they would look like the victim. Could that have been the case here? With no evidence proving who did the attack even though the coalition governments say they have proof in which no one else has seen. In fact, Investigators from the U.N. were supposed to be on the scene in Dhouma this Sunday to start their investigation into the incident.
The President continued with his speech saying that, “The purpose of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons.” The U.S. was also prepared to “sustain” this response till the Assad government stopped using chemical weapons. Theresa May, and Emmanuel Macon also gave news of the attacks and the reasons behind it on Friday night. On Thursday Macon said that he had proof that chlorine gas was used in the Dhouma attack.
This comes on the heels of a tense week of back and forth between President Trump and President Putin. Russia warned the United States that they would shoot down any missiles and the place of origin of those Missiles if launched into Syria. They also claimed this week that they were able to jam some of the drones that U.S. uses in that region. In response Trump said that an attack was coming to stop “that animal Assad.”
The President ripped into Russia and Iran saying, “To Iran and Russia, I ask, what kind of nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women, and children? These are not the actions of a man, they are crimes of a monster instead.” The Assad regime has used chemical weapons in the past during the 7-year civil year and the last time he was accused of using them was last year.
When it comes to withdrawing the troops, Trump responded by saying that he remained committed to having other countries in the region to step up. That the U.S. would bring troops home after defeating the Islamic state.
Before I end this article, the Russian reply to the Missile attacks tonight was that President Trump was “Hitler II” and the leftist media already coming up with their Narrative to why Trump launched these attacks. So that the attention wouldn’t be on the Mueller investigation and the raid on Trump’s lawyer this week. Remember kids, don’t drink the Kool-Aid. The Pentagon will have a full briefing of the attacks on Saturday morning at 9AM EST.
