Why not start a war Mr. President to distract people from your other problems?!!
:wtf:

I don't agree with what the president did but to suggest he did it because someone suggested it on Fox TV is absurd! My best guess is the attack was planned long before hand. Way before the (fake) gas attack or the Comey investigation (were planned)! Though I wouldn't be surprised to see the president calling up France and Britten after getting the idea from watching Fox TV on the next episode of Saturday Night Live.

Why did Trump attack Syria?
Things don't add up. Something is very wrong about the entire situation.

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED With Trump's Attack and What Will Happen Next!
This guy provides a pretty good summary of the claims being made by both sides. He also makes a pretty good point: If the USA bombed chemical weapons facilities, then why was there no release of chemical weapons and subsequent poisoning of people living near the facilities? And if such chemicals were to be released would it not be the fault of the USA? Hypocrisy?

40 Year-Old Soviet Missile Defense Destroys 70% of Trump’s ‘Nice, New, Smart!’ Missiles
Russia stood down and allowed Syria to defend itself. If Syrian soldiers using out-dated equipment could destroy 70% of the incoming missiles, then just think what Russian soldiers would do using modern equipment.

BREAKING: Swiss Lab Confirmed That Skripals Were Exposed to BZ, Nerve Agent Used By The UK & U.S.
It's getting to the point where I trust Russian news sources more than I trust domestic news sources.
QUESTION: How can you tell when news reporters from the USA are lying?
ANSWER: Their lips are moving.

People who believe in the cartoon Assad contrived by the MSM probably find it easy to believe that he used chemical weapons. But Assad is not a cartoon villain. He's a rational actor. It wouldn't make sense for him to use chemical weapons this year or last year. So, I'm puzzled about this entire situation. I'm skeptical, but I'm agnostic. There are too many unanswered questions.

Is it possible that Trump retaliated the fake chemical weapons attack with a fake airstrike?

I'm holding out hopes that this is the case.

It is my understanding that there were unbelievably few casualties in both the chemical weapons attack and the retaliatory air strike.

OAN Investigation Finds No Evidence of Chemical Weapon Attack in Syria
First hand investigative journalism. I thought it was extinct. In case there is any doubt: People in Syria are grateful that Assad has defeated the rebels. Keep in mind that the USA backed the rebels. Russia backed Assad. It's not too hard to figure out who the good guys really are in Syria.

Russian military finds alleged chemical weapons lab in Douma
Not surprising in the least!
An alleged chemical arsenal was discovered by Russian servicemen in the basement of a high-rise apartment building in the Eastern Ghouta city of Douma on Tuesday. A statement by the Russian Ministry of Defence reports that chemicals such as chlorine, thiodiglycol and diethylamide were found.
