With the decision to bomb Syria, I have to ask, has America been fooled again? Is it an absolute that Presdients are selected not elected? Is Trump being blackmailed?
The facts are that the trust between Trump and his supporters has taken an enormous hit, and America is as close to all-out war as it has ever been with the Russians since the days of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Let’s start with Russia.
The Russian Prime Minister
The words of war are coming from the Russian leadership and it is very hard to not take them seriously.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. in a terse statement, noted
“The US missile strike violated not only international, and added that the attack was on the brink of military clashes with Russia.”
On his Facebook page, Medvedev further stated:
“Instead of their much-publicized thesis about a joint fight with a common enemy, Islamic State, the Trump administration has proven that it will fiercely fight against the legal government of Syria…”
The Kremlin stated the following:
“President Putin views the U.S. strikes on Syria as aggression against a sovereign state in violation of the norms of international law and on a made-up up pretext. This step by Washington will inflict major damage on U.S.-Russia ties.”
Trump’s Supporters Are Deserting Him In Droves
In the words of former President, Harry, Truman, “If you can’t take the heat, then get out of the kitchen”. Well, President Trump has left the kitchen and his followers are noticing this very large numbers.
Anne Coulter has said that Trump’s support will be decimated unless he stops meddling in the Middle East:
“Meddling in the Middle East has destroyed every president who’s ever tried it.”
Ron Paul doesn’t buy the official narrative:
“It doesn’t make any sense for Assad, under these conditions, to all of the sudden use poison gas. I think it’s zero chance he would have done this… It makes no sense….I don’t believe it!”
Paul Joseph Watson supported Trump as strongly as I did. I found myself completely agreeing with Paul in so many of his pieces that he did during the campaign.
“I guess Trump wasn’t ‘Putin’s puppet’ after all, he was just another deep state/Neo-Con puppet…I’m officially OFF the Trump train.”
Watson senother tweet directly to Mr Trump that read:
“Americans didn’t vote for you to intensify Hillary’s disastrous foreign policy…”
I could not agree more thn I do with this last quote from Watson.
Cassandra Fairbanks, known for being a prominent Trump supporter who has her roots as an online activist stated
“That she might stop supporting Mr Trump”…“trying to remain hopeful”… “this is too far”. “I am devastated”… “This isn’t who we voted for.”
Nigel Farage, who has been one of Mr Trump’s biggest supporters, since his election, suggested that the decision to support intervention was outrageous as expressed in the following tweet:
