    Chemical weapons are beyond the pale; something needed to be done about this. If more strikes are ordered, though, they need to go through Congress.

    Good job, Trump.
    You really think Trump cares about poor brown people anywhere in the world?

    You act like trump hurling bombs is something new. When has the USA not done that? Growing up, Vietnam consumed many years of my life with multiple presidents, now the middle east is.

    The fact that a madman/puppet has that authority is the real problem.

    Good job, Trump.
    A tactical necessity .... for the world's policeman maybe, but no US people or assets faced any conceivable threat from Assad.

    This attack violated the War Powers Resolution. Period.

    I was surprised to see the Alt Right freak out so badly over Trump's little diversionary tactic: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/...l-over-us.html

    what about the 200% increase in civilian casualties in the ME since Trump took office? Is that beyond the pale too?

    Vietnam wasn't the work of a mad man? 58,000 dead many times more wounded, helped wreck our society. Trump hasn't even come close. Maybe Trump has complicated your multicultural, Critical Theory utopioa.

    The war in Vietnam was a mistake, but there's plenty of blame to go around. Our involvement began under Eisenhower and ended with Nixon.

    My own world
    Blind faith in the President is the problem which is something that Trump will certainly never have from 70% of Americans and 90% of the world.
    Bush pretty much put a stake in the heart of believing any President every again without verifying the evidence and that means getting the majority of the world agreeing to the evidence. The facts on America being attacked and who did the attacking have to be pretty much agreed to pretty much all of the world except those of course that are being accused. Every country other than Russia confirms the American system was attacked by Russia so that is good enough for me. When Iraq was supposed to have WMD's the whole world didn't agree=example Canada did not and did not join the evasion.

    The 30% of people that don't believe the Russia attack were the last hold outs in the Iraq war that kept insisting and believed people like George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and John Bolton that the war in Iraq was justified due to WMD. This time the USA President is saying there was no attack but the fact is that the attack is very real and the people around the President are trying to say no, it isn't. Fool the 30% of USA people once, shame on the conman President and his men at the time, fool the same 30% USA people twice and shame on those people. They still can't figure out when their president is conning them. The excuse the President is not "one of the deep state" so Trump can be trusted is a conman's ploy that the 30% have fallen for. Trump was one of the deep state before he became President and now leads the deep state. Deep State or swamp creature are just other terms for people with money that can get everything they want and cover up anything they do=if they don't have the power they buy the power or blackmail to get the power. This works until you come up against people that are not afraid and can't be bought and will not roll over and be intimidated. In Watergate it was other Republicans this time around we got no balls in the GOP party or there are just too many in the higher ups involved themselves. FBI agents, the FED judges and ordinary citizens are the only onces we can count on to stand up and not lie for the President and his men.
