sandman: Trump is in one heck of a predicament. Between this Mueller stuff and what's going on in Syria, he's between a rock and a hard place. I could easily see him use the situation in Syria to divert attention from his other problems. He's no hero. He's not going to do the right thing. He's a sleazy businessman and he'll simply do the expedient thing. Brains and balls ain't in his future. I can guarantee that. I wish I could be wrong, but I'm not. Sorry.

Seems like the real reason trump wants to back down and even pull troops out of Syria besides the attack being faked by the rebels is because Russia threatened to retaliate by blowing up any missiles launched and the launch site from which they came.

Any US missiles fired at Syria will be shot down, launch sites targeted

Tucker: Why are questions avoided about US in Syria?
Stephen Colbert annihilated in this news clip. I'm ashamed to say that I once actually thought of Colbert as relevant and funny. Now I know he's an impudent phony.

Trump says missiles 'will be coming' to Syria
Somehow Trump seems to have suggested that the Mueller situation has something to do with the possibility that he will fire missiles into Syria. Meanwhile, Russia says that they will shoot down the missiles and go after the site from which they are launched. WWIII could be imminent!

This reminds me a little too much of the Cuban Missile Crisis only now the potential nukes are much, much, much more lethal. It's hard to say if Russia will make good on its threats, but at least they would be justified. We have absolutely no justification for any military aggression against Syria. Of course, that didn't stop us in Iraq either...

In my analysis it seems more like the Cuban missile crisis in reverse. During the Cuban missile crises Russia backed down but it appears Trump is the one backing down this time. He is also the one that made the origional threat, though it was just a verbal one; while the Russian threat during the Cuban missile crises involved installing actual missiles. If there were any real evidence that the Syrian government was actually the one responsible for the gassing the circumstances would be different.

The Cuban missile crisis as I recall basically amounted to the Russians testing JFK. I get the feeling that Trump was merely pushing Putin's buttons in much the same way and if he had really intended to attack Syria he never would have announced it. Much like the Russians came out unscathed after the Cuban missile crisis I think that Trump probably will as well and this will all blow over making both sides look good after giving them an opportunity to flex their muscles; though we can't really be sure till it's over.

US President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to clarify that he never specified when the US would conduct an attack on Syria.

“Never said when an attack on Syria would take place,” Trump wrote on Thursday. “Could be very soon or not so soon at all!”

Translation: The attack on Syria is coming; right after I build that wall...

And Mexico is going to pay for it!
