On the Tucker Carlson show last night…
I agree with Ann. I don’t get why Trump sent 59 missiles into Syria other than to make the world’s bad actors sit up straight. The biggest impact would be towards Russia and China. Russia has been screwing around in the area for decades and is aligned with the likes of Iran. China is enabling North Korea’s idiot.
Let’s not forget that this strike was only at a military airbase with a very minimal loss of life. The airfield is still intact. Overall I believe the strike was an opportunity to convey a simple message that the Obama era is over and we’re not putting up with the bullshit any longer which is a good thing.
Replacing Assad may not be the best strategy going forward since there doesn’t appear to be a suitable replacement in the wings. Lastly, the fact that the Left, Neocons, and ISIS is happy about this is troubling.
My 2 cents.
