Remember the time when Donald Trump messed up his response on H-1 Visas during one of the debates, and got justly shredded on social media for waffling on immigration?
Well, that was probably the last time that I was this mad at the guy over words said in public, although now we’re playing with far more than a few stupid comments on live television.
We are now talking about the lives of thousands of White Americans – potentially now on the line thanks to Trump’s gullibility on the Syrian issue of Bashar al-Assad allegedly using poison gas against his own people.
Never mind the fact that this is like the fourth or fifth time (((certain elements))) have tried to pin ISIS/rebel atrocities on the rightful leader of Syria, and never mind the fact that both the Russians and Syrian military have come forward to explain that the gassing was caused by an airstrike on a terrorist munitions factory storing chemical weapons.
None of that matters anymore – even apparently in the mind of the President (at least when certain elements whisper nonsense into his ear).
Instead you must look to your feels in a way that seems more at home in a Bush-era nation, or in Sweden.
Trump has said his attitude toward President Bashar Assad and Syria has “changed very much,” when asked at a joint news conference with Jordan’s King Abdullah if the alleged chemical attack in Idlib crossed a red line.
“It crossed a lot of lines with me. When you kill innocent children – innocent babies – with chemical gas… that goes beyond red lines,” Trump told reporters on Wednesday.
Trump said the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria “cannot be tolerated,” but he did not say what the US might do in response. He blamed the incident on the government in Damascus.
“These heinous acts by the Assad regime cannot be tolerated,” added Trump. “My attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much. What happened yesterday is unacceptable to me.”
Pressed by reporters to reveal what he intended to do in response, Trump declined.
“Militarily, I don’t like to say when I’m going and what I’m doing,” he added. “I’m not saying I won’t do anything one way or another, but I certainly won’t be telling you [the media].”
Jordan’s King Abdullah praised Trump’s “realistic approach to the challenges in the region,” adding that Syria requires a political solution “that ends the conflict with the country preserving its unity and territorial integrity.”
At least 58 people, including 11 children, reportedly died and scores were injured after a hospital in Khan Sheikhoun was targeted in a suspected gas attack on Tuesday morning, Reuters reported, citing medics and rebel activists. Soon after a missile allegedly hit the facility, people started showing symptoms of chemical poisoning, such as choking and fainting.
According to Russia’s Defense Ministry, the Syrian Air Force destroyed a warehouse in Idlib province where chemical weapons were being produced and stockpiled by rebels before being shipped to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Iraq.
The warehouse was used to both produce and store shells containing toxic gas, Major-General Igor Konashenkov said. The same chemical munitions were used by militants in Aleppo, where Russian military experts took samples in late 2016, Konashenkov said.
Trump himself harshly criticized the Obama administration’s intentions to intervene in Syria back in 2013, saying that the rebels were “just as bad as the current regime” and the US should stay out.
Asked about it on Wednesday, however, the president said his position has changed.
“I do change, and I am flexible. I am proud of that flexibility. The attack on children yesterday had a big impact on me,” Trump said.
“The world is a mess. I inherited a mess,” he told reporters, pointing to Syria and North Korea before adding, “we’re going to fix it.”
Donald, I want you to understand – you actually already might – that the Alt-Right supported you partly because of your commitment to ending foreign wars in desert hellholes as part of an initiative to benefit the Jews.
We’re sick of dead, we’re sick of wounded, we’re sick of our money being sent to support the infrastructure of useless nations that mean nothing to actual White humans, and we’re sick of “refugees” entering our nation thanks to our own military attacks.
Again, Mr. President, understand that we created you, and know that we could easily guarantee that you only exist as a one-term leader if you keep up with this foolishness.
Talk to Bannon, and have him explain to you just exactly what is going on in Syria.
Read RT, and have Tillerson ask the right questions in his upcoming meeting with Lavrov.
And at the end of the day, remember three simple words that will all but guarantee continued support in the coming days, weeks, months, and years.
NO. MORE. WARS.
