Only get scared if china says anything.
I would have more faith in this except
The messaging for this has been all over the place. Earlier Trump wanted to pull all troops out of Syria, then he wanted to do some sort of mega-strike. Now we have I guess a medium strike? Mattis said this is a one time shot but earlier we had reporting this would be a continued campaign. This flip-floping isn't filling me with confidence (putting aside I wouldn't trust Trump to hold my change LOL).
Sure is nice to do this now in the midst of one of the most scandal-filled Fridays in this Presidency (i.e. "Wag the Dog").
If Trump LEGIT cared about the plight of the Syrian people, he'd be letting Syrian refugees into the US. The fact that he isn't tells me he doesn't really care about what's going on. There is no moral cause here.
I'm 99% sure this is illegal without Congressional approval. It's fine if you don't care of course but that does kind of matter.
Like those going on about "OMG WWIII" were being silly. But "I guess Trump is good now" takes are pretty bad too.
There are members of our community affected by these events. Do not downplay them as unworthy of worry. Thank you.
I do expect US forces are not going to be tolerated anymore in Syria, even if they're there "just to fight ISIS"
Nonsense, if his approval rating goes down or his base of support gets weaker, then that's a great thing and something I like to pay attention to
Also, it seems you read one post of a long discussion and assumed I don't have a position about this. I do have a position. Its of support of the strikes.
By far the most embarrassing thread I've ever had the displeasure of reading in a very long time.
I hope all you fear mongers get very little sleep tonight.
Y'all sounding like a doomsday cult
At the end of the day they're living on borrowed time. Their slow, painful deaths are inevitable and the "world powers" who were so quick to rush into iraq to find imaginary weapons will do fuck all because of russia
This at least gives them more time
I really hope there are very few civilian casualties.
So many weird, tin foil trump haters here who I thought were decent people who could rationalise thoughts without automatically throwing conspiracies around.
Now see, nearly everyone including me hates Trump but when you start spewing shite around like some of the stuff in this thread I don't think you'll ever be taken seriously again in any context of any thread. Some of you need to chill and the k before posting. You're not children, you're grown adults however hard that is to believe.
These strikes were absolutely necessary by US, France and UK. I'm personally glad as a British citizen that Teresa May decided to go ahead because we needed to take action against people willing to use weapons of mass destruction against their own fellow men, women and children.
It's only doomsday if trumps approval rating rises.
Unless there's a US airline flying over Ukraine, Russia ain't doing shit. I support this operation though Trump is not the one who should be leading it.
Here's hoping after tonight the news cycle returns to hitting with the crazy discoveries from the FBI/Mueller investigations.
Yea russia is just gonna bomb paris new york and london.
No, ww3 not happening. At worst, allies will be told to leave syria. If they dont, then you can worry
This latest response is very different.
What's the word on fox news?
how about this exact same scenario one year ago?
Who gives a shit about Russia, support chemical weapons usage you can get fucked
Poor Syria. I feel badly for them -- some of my coworkers still have family there. They must be so fucking worried :/
