    And they mock Alex Jones...


    A volley of U.S. cruise missiles has barely been launched into Syria before the Internet filled up with fact-free theories about the real reason for an international crisis.

    A popular one on the right-most fringes: the U.S. government actually carried out the chemical weapons massacre in Syria last week — a “false flag” to trick President Trump into retaliating, thus entangling himself in a foreign war.

    A slightly more convoluted strain on the left: Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the chemical weapons massacre to help Trump — distracting Americans from an investigation into Trump's campaign ties to Russia by provoking the missile strike.

    That theory — evidence-free — was laid out on a small anti-Trump website shortly after the missile strikes. But it went mainstream Friday night, when Lawrence O'Donnell advanced similar speculation on his MSNBC show, “The Last Word.”

    “Wouldn't it be nice,” O'Donnell asked a nodding, smiling Rachel Maddow, “if it was just completely, totally, absolutely impossible to suspect that Vladimir Putin orchestrated what happened in Syria this week — so that his friend in the White House could have a big night with missiles and all the praises he's picked up over the past 24 hours?"

    Same people say, thats what they say, I've heard, I read that somewhere, somebody gave me that information, it's on the internet so it must be true…….I heard it on a TV show, you know he is very good at his job, ask him…..

    If it's good enough for the President of the USA and if it's good enough for the WH press Secretary then it's got to be they right way of getting the facts, alternate facts, its what he believes, he is just repeating what someone else said….

    I don't buy into the "help Trump" angle without evidence.

    But it's hardly unthinkable that Syria's weapons were destroyed during the Obama administration --- this was overseen from multiple American and international sectors and all indications are that the U.S. intelligence community believed he was disarmed --- before Russia supplied the Syrians with new weapons.

    As far as actually helping Trump, the most vocally isolationist of his supporters have condemned this action, in concert with Democrats, so I don't think that's helped him significantly more than it has hurt him. In fact for that reason I suspect that however Assad acquired these weapons that were used, he and/or Russia believed the U.S. would not do anything.

    Instead their actions prompted this half measure, bombing the airbase without even attacking the runways...

    Side note, Alex Jones is a Jew-hating 9/11 conspiracy theorist who propagated a story that directly inspired an armed invasion of a family restaurant and refused to retract or apologize for it for months. I'm pretty fuckin' sure that he's more worthy of mockery, derision and dismissal than someone who sees Vladimir Putin as continually up to no good ... which he is.

    Could the Syrian "attack" be a gentleman's agreement between 2 Super Powers"?

    US drops a few bombs to save Global face, but Russia agrees for their own attack? Chechnya?

    Or, could this be a Global warning? The US strikes a puppet State OVER a Super Power's head to make a Stand..?

    I don't think Trump was in on the gas attack but I think it's interesting that Russia and Syria were warned with enough time to get any valuable assets out of harms way.

    The warning was , Take your pick 30 minutes to two hours. Dead Russians and the fall out from that was not the goal. Syria is enough of a problem without a really pissed Russia to deal with. Trump has picked up cheers from moderates and some on the left but he has lost cheers with many of his hard core fans. Investigations into hacking, Russia, elections will back soon enough. Left media is not going to let go of Trump to take him down.
