    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.
    But barrel bombs are all good? What about starvation? That is a worse death then by chemical weapons. Sarin is pretty awful, but it's over pretty quickly.

    To the question in the OP: It didn't even distract Trump. He was still tweeting about Comey and other crap.

Russia and Iran still have boots on the ground in Syria guaranteeing that Assad won't be toppled, and we know that he still has chemical weapons at his disposal.

    So, what exactly did we accomplish with last night's bombings?
    We sent a serious message to those that use terror to obtain their objectives...as long as the voices of bitter dissent don't weaken that message.

    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.
    Tell ya what...blind hatred from the voices of bitterness is thousands times worse

    Good because i do not want to see anymore kids get gassed. Fuck Assad. I would have done it myself if I could.

    Furthermore, i would happily put a bullet in Assad's head, but im just some crazy man posting on the internet. Not kidding one bit. I would enjoy it. I hope someone else does it......the pompus asshole.
