♫ Meet the new boss ♫
♫ Same as the old boss ♫


I didn't vote for this Mr. Trump. I sincerely hope this action is as short and simple as the one last year. Do not get pulled into another foreign war, and do not cripple the secular regime to the extent that Islamic fundamentalists are able to seize power.

This is BS. Syria is not our problem, barbaric Muslims killing other Muslims is not my problem. President Trump, I didn't vote for this either.

If this is merely some dick swinging, showing that the US is again the bad boy on the block, I'm not happy we chose this way to do it, but OK, whatever. Dance with the ones who brung ya and use this as a "don't make me have to come back and start kicking ass again" moment and get us out of Syria. Syria is Russia's problem, not ours.

There are times that the best course of action is to pull up a chair and watch the shit show unfold. Syria is one of those times.

I agree with you...


...but...


I also am on the outside of the IC, Intelligence Community. The IC has knowledge of many things. As much as our great open society is, the ability of the IC is vast and layered in many places. So with all that said, Trump is the boss of the IC. I may not understand many things but I'd like to believe my trust in him is worthy.

Edit:

I just found this on Twitter; Seb Gorka, the former WH Appointee:

Secretay Mattis just now:

“I am absolutely confident and we have the intelligence that Assad used chemical weapons last week.”

For anyone who still propagates conspiracy theories, you have the word of a former 4-star Marine Corps legend, and you need to STOP.

It was attached to a news story on twitter. Presented as being from the strikes tonight. But you never know. Everyone is in such a hurry to break news first, sometimes fact-checking is lacking.

The pic might be Baghdad '03. This is on page one of a Bing search.

It's way past time for America to get out of the "World Policeman" business. Especially when it comes to Muslims killing other Muslims.

We need to let the rest of the world kill themselves off or grow the hell out of the bronze age culture they wallow in.

If they decide to attack us, or our allies, then we respond with massive, overwhelming and indiscriminate force. Otherwise let them kill each other.

I have felt that way ever since the Korean war, not that I was old enough to have an opinion DURING that war.....

but in fact, just what difference did it make about Korea being commie or not?? what diff did it make about VNam??

AND in this islamic war....WTF,?? Why did Karter allow the Sha of Iran to fall and those stupid mullahs from trashcanistan to take over?? that allowed them $$$$ to finance that crap they been sponsoring all over the world, much less 9/11 and too boot, I knew full well at the time that attacking Sadass in Iraq was a full blown mistake,.....should have gone after south Iran and trashcanistan.....but NO.....witch makes me really paranoid about this deep state crap and just WHO is running our .gov handing out piss poor advice to our elected leaders, much less payoffs??

This was more about showing N. Korea and Iran that we aren’t afraid to exercise power than Syria. Remember, Trump has his meeting with fatty next month.

I will relay a story regarding the "world police" label. A good friend of mine that traveled the world doing AC drive repair, had a conversation with a Pakistani and he asked what other countries feel about the US. His answer was this'...

We do not like the US treating itself like the global police BUT if any country is going to do that, we are glad it is the US.

I believe that many passive countries feel the same way.

Yeh, I know we set the Sha up as a bullwork against the new punk state, the soviet union....but the folks under the Sha did not seem too unhappy, except in mullah land.....plenty of pix around of Tehran types enjoying themselves, even in bathing suits.....no different than the rest of relaxed Europe....

A friend/room mate in college was from Iran, son of some diplomat type.....

and not long after Sha's leaving, I ran into an Iranian family with a HUGE mansion out in Potomac Md......yard sale....inside the house was this TWO story portrait of the Reza Sha....in his flight suit who was taking fighter plane training our in Ca. ......he was a relative of theirs.....they all easy/pleasant to get along with in both cases, and not anything I noticed about islam at all.....
