    Bombing Syria

    I was sure Trump would have bombed Syria last night or today. The raid of his lawyer's office made that a good bet but it appears it may take another day or two. If Trump does not bomb Syria soon then what do you think his move will be instead?

    Fire Rosenstein, or Sessions? Or even better blame Mueller and fire him?

    Nah. My money is on Trump bombing Syria to change the subject and vent his anger.

    But his boss...V. Putin...may not allow that.

    Would sure like to see some more compelling evidence of who the perps actually were.

    The UK is pushing for an investigation. Nikki Haley seems to be pushing for a bombing run.


    Not picking up a good vibe on this whole cluster fuck.....

    Trump can't hold his temper when he is mad and this Cohen thing has ticked him off. Putin may have to dock his pay.

    I don't think you'll have too long to wait.

    The UNSC votes (vetoes) are taking place now.

    Qatar's just (re)joined the fold https://twitter.com/AlArabiya_Eng/st...42947085684736

    And DJT and Theresa May just had a friendly chat.

    What would you like to see him do.

    Seems you are ready to simply criticize anything he does.

    What's you solution and then we will see if Trump matches it.

    C'mon liberals, man up for a change.

    Poisoning of children deserves more than a mouth flapping from NATO. I do think as far as the US goes the odds of Syria being bombed by Trump rose with the raid of Cohen's premises.

    It probably didn't hurt it, but I think this was a foregone conclusion even before that just looking at how the pieces have been falling into place.

    Which isn't to say I consider DJT above wagging the dog. Just that I don't believe that's the driving force here.

    Well as soon as Cohen was raided I placed my prediction at the time Trump was not talking about doing anything major to Syria. This is just an update on where my prediction stands. I am confident one of the 3 or 4 potentials to change the subject will happen since he is now talking about removal or badness of Sessions, Mueller and Rosenstein and bombing Syria. At worse my guess yesterday may earn a trifecta near perfection.

    As far as Syria goes, NATO coalition just as Obama worked with. If Trump is not just informing other countries that we are going to bomb Syria and instead actually building a coalition, fine.

    We'll get a bit of a peek by knowing the answer of (a) a NATO coalition action involving other country's bombing vs (b)solo US bombing action.

    But even with that answer it is a no-brainer that this is how Trump handles bad headlines.
