President Trump Calls Syria Chemical Attack An ‘Affront To Humanity’

WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/AP) — President Donald Trump is condemning the chemical attack in Syria that left 72 people dead as an “affront to humanity” that “cannot be tolerated.”

Trump made the comments at the start of a joint news conference with Jordanian King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein at the White House on Wednesday.

A suspected chemical attack in a town in Syria’s rebel-held northern Idlib province killed dozens of people on Tuesday in one of the worst attacks in the country’s six-year civil war. The Trump administration has blamed the attack on the government of President Bashar Assad.

“When you kill innocent children, innocent babies — babies, little babies — that crosses many, many lines. Beyond the red line. Many, many lines,” Trump said.

    I would like to see if the SMART BOMB, is smart enough to find ASSAD, at least a good test run is warranted! You know just to see, if it is really that smart!
    If it does not pass the test, then we know it is not so smart!

    Corruption and Gas
    So many bad things are coming to light in the wake of the Obama presidency. Actually, Hillary Clinton, as first lady, brought the dark aura of political corruption to the federal government when she first co-opted the FBI files on her and Bill’s political enemies. Eight years of corruption and unexplained deaths followed. Indeed Hillary introduced a corrupt way of life to national politics that was apparently, acceptable to both parties.

    Bush was never accused of corruption, just ineptitude and that’s debatable, but he acted decisively when it was called for. Then came Obama and his reign of sweet talk, failures and corruption of the functions of government. He’s gone and new problems now confront us. The news of the gas attack in Syria returns us to that famous Obama “Red Line” threat about Syrian President Assad using gas against his own people and what America should do about it.

    Well, he did nothing and the world saw a weak, feckless US presidents inability to keep his word unless that word was detrimental to Americas interests. And that leaves us where we are today, at this very minute, with a new president having an important decision to make, how to blunt the re-emergence of barbarism with Obama’s deep state, swampy bureaucracy still at his back.

    We will quickly know exactly which Syrian combatant committed that atrocity but, the best guess is President Assad because, except for the Russians and us, he’s the only one with an airborne delivery system and sarin gas in stock. My instinct tells me the Russians didn’t even know about it because they can’t afford any more bad publicity of this nature. Too, the Turks also have a voice in this game. What happens next will inevitably charge Americas course on foreign policy for decades, unless Schumers Democrats can screw it up for us.

    The question under immediate discussion within the media, is how Trump should respond. Punishment is absolutely called for. US Navy submarines in the Med., the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean are all ready and set to launch cruise missiles into Syrian targets, especially Assad’s pleasure palaces and government command and control centers. Believe me, we know where they all are. Last weeks unfortunate comment by Secretary of State Tillerson, about Assad no longer being a problem to the US, will no longer apply. T-Rex will have learned an important diplomatic lesson on what not to say and when not to say it.

    The primary worry is the reaction of Syria’s sponsor, Putin’s Russia. if his military complexes and aerodromes are inadvertently targeted and planes destroyed, how will he immediately react? Russia like us, is broke and cannot sustain any lengthy combat, especially over an Arab president who may have gone off the rails. Russia as a member of the UN, signed onto rules and regulations regarding use of weapons of mass destruction. Putin has this other problem. Not everybody in Russia is happy with him. At the moment, he just has the biggest stick.

    For us, the most favorable consequence will be that Trump will have delivered the most important message of all, America’s back! Many will heave a sigh of relief and welcome the prospect of area stability It will give them room to prepare for whatever Iran may decide to do.

    Iran will also note the change in Americas determination and, if they can tear themselves away from the pages of the Koran, they’ll realize they are really an easy target. We have entered a period of extreme political combustion. We must tread heavily now. The world is waiting!

      There’s a lot of variables going on over there…It’s hard to believe any one about any thing…Do we know for sure it was Assad?…Supposedly his chemical stockpiles were destroyed as witnessed by NATO inspectors…The Russian say a rocket hit a chemical storage facility…that could well be…There are reports that traces of both chlorine and sarin were found in that area…that doesn’t make sense…we know there are manufacturing facilities in Turkey that have manufactured chemical weapons that were secretly distributed to the US backed rebels a few years back…No one has came out and said anything about that story….but the evidence is there…Will we ever know the true story…If President Trump is not getting the real story from our intelligence services and or the CIA as was given to George Bush about Iraq’s WMD…The American public will never know the real truth and neither will our President…The secrets lie within the vaults of the deep state shadow government.

        Your fears that President Trump could be a victim of deep state shenanigans could be quite valid. That we hit the right target in this case is not in question. We have complete electronic detection coverage over that area using airborne collectors among others, watched the Syrian planes take off and hit their targets. No questions there.

        Where Trump will differ is that he will not send in infantry and armored divisions to mop up. The precision of the strikes was the hall mark of our attack and apparently, the large Syrian Airfield, at Home, the only target. Russians weren’t there apparently. If thjey were, too bad!

        The Turks, if they sold chemical weapons to the Syrians, would have done so only in the the expectation the attacks would be against the Kurds. They are trying to legitimize themselves in the worlds eyes.

        The Obama deep state residuals are indeed shallow and will soon be rooted out with real Constitutional American intelligence officers quickly filling the voids. I believe that the enemies within, those adversley affecting our post Obama foreign policy concerns, were Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan, lawyers in the DoJ, Obama’s senior officer picks for the pentagon and some in the DNI.

        I am delighted that some readers of my posts actually think through the issues at hand and ask the questions that needed to be asked. Thanks.
