Critics not Syria-ous



UPDATE: The "war" is over. See update at bottom.

ORIGINAL POST: The House voted 354-60 to condemn President Donald John Trump's decision not to get involved in a dispute between Turkey and Syria. If members were Syria-ous, they would have voted to declare war. Put up or shut up.

But 2 1/2 years earlier, these chicken hawks in Washington accused President Donald John Trump of trying to start World War III in Syria.

On April 7, 2017, President Donald John Trump ordered 59 cruise missiles to wipe out the air base from which the Assad government had launched a chemical warfare attack on Khan Sheikhun. He was dining with Chairman Xi at Mar-a-Lago at the time.

USA Today accused the president of risking World War III.

Jessica Estepa, then an editor in its Washington bureau, wrote, "Is this the start of World War III? That's what people are worried about."

The people she cited were Magneto's Fear, Penguin, Deplorable Winner, and other intellectual luminaries on Twitter.

Her story said, "Let's take a step back for a moment. World War I began in 1914, following the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A month-long diplomatic crisis ensued, eventually leading to the empire declaring war on Serbia."

Serbia sounds just like Syria, so I can see the connection.

Now USA Today is so pumped up about having American soldiers die in Syria that it is deliberately putting words in the presidents mouth to bash him.

It alleged, "President Donald Trump, facing bipartisan condemnation over Turkey's invasion of Syria, defended his handling of the matter Wednesday as 'strategically brilliant' and downplayed the U.S. alliance with the Kurds, who are 'not angels,' he said.

"'It's not our problem,' Trump said in the Oval Office as Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo prepared to travel to Turkey to try to negotiate a cease-fire and avoid a humanitarian crisis on the Syrian border."

Fake News.

The president said, "They have a problem at the border; it's not our border."

But the American press is the fog machine when it comes to the fog of war. ABC took footage off You Tube from a Kentucky training exercise, labeled it "Slaughter In Syria," and reported it as news. Who needs Baghdad Bob when you have George Stephanopoulos running the show?

The president has a plan in Syria called let-them-figure-it-out. The USA is in a no win situation there. Maybe if we back off, Russia will. Who knows?

We do know that his promise of economic sanctions will keep Erdogan in check.

President Trump has the U.S. military and tariffs at his disposal. When he uses the latter, Washington howls. When he doesn't use the former, Washington howls even louder.

It's as if they want wars and the exportation of jobs.

UPDATE:
President Trump once again proved the elitist slobs and snobs dead wrong.

I'll have more at 6. Now for a topdown drive to Walmart.
