Schumer is an idiot and Mccain just wants to fight everybody.Trump made a statement that the US is back and not to be messed with.Russia,Syria,Turkey and Iran will all end up fighting each other over their piece of the pie.Assad will most likely end up like Ghadaffi and Hussien when Russia and Iran decide hes no longer needed.The US can withdraw from Syria and it wont be long before Saudi Arabia and Israel take up the fight and then th US can make money selling them weapons.

Does that include the 88 who demanded he come to Congress for authorization before any strikes?

Liar Trump 5 years ago, under Obama:

"The President MUST get Congressional approval before attacking Syria! Big mistake if he does not!"

Liar Trump last night:

Attacks Syria without Congressional approval.

Liar Trump is also a big, fat orange HYPOCRITE.

The President does not need Congress to order one air strike. If we had stopped Hitler early on we wouldn't have had a world war. Just because President Obama telegraphed his every move does not mean that is the only approach to dealing with Assad. Our current Congress is to some extent anti-American. Our military isn't safe when we tell them our military secrets.

'Just because President Obama telegraphed his every move does not mean that is the only approach to dealing with Assad"

Is that right?

What is really sickening is the Administration's and hysterics like Nikki Haley's knee-jerk quickness to military strikes against absolutely unverified claims against Assad, while they don't ever mention the government sponsored genocide occurring right now against White people in South Africa. Really... Does Pence not realize the immoral, cowardly and feckless character of not addressing real and substantiated Crimes Against Humanity?

The latest news suggests the "storage" facilities bombed may have been completely vacant. This is additional information supporting the view that the Assad government does not have chemical weapons, as they were removed with Russian and international oversight... as affirmed by Obama. However, radical Islamic forces do have chemical weapons per the site they overran when Obama's funding and arming aided their once successful push. Their behavior has clearly shown their complete lack of any civilized values. For the U.S. Administration to not know this is clearly impossible. Thus, other things are in play here and bombing empty warehouses was only saving face.

The Administration claim that the huge cloud of poison gas potentially released was "carefully" considered is hogwash and shows only the sick and inhumane characters of those making such decisions.

The case is that Western countries organized Syrian war, as continuation of forceful “Regime Change” policies, which they have been pursuing during last two decades. They succeeded in former Yugoslavia; Iraq; Afghanistan; and Libya. Russia and China, regard changing foreign governments by force unacceptable, but they felt helpless in previous cases, because they were still weak themselves. They supported Syria, as they are both stronger now. After 7 years of suffering, Syrian war is practically over, thanks to perseverance of Syrians, and help of their friends. But Western countries, who manufactured that war with the intention to change “the Regime” and replace it with their puppet government, are excluded from the solution, and they are not accepting that. So they now stepped in the places of their proxies, which are defeated, hoping that they would still force their solutions. It does not look it will work.

Trump's warning call to his Puppet master Vladimir Putin really didn't help to end Assad's ruthless Syrian dynasty.

This is the second time an opportunity to decapitate a violent despot was squandered.

The continued attempts to create a new Russia monster, along with your fantasies about puppets and their masters are being exposed. It takes time. Other Democrat conspiracies to mislead the U.S. into war have taken as much a hundred years to expose. Woodrow Wilson and the Democrat mafia actually loaded the Lusitania with thousands of people to sacrifice in death to involve the pacifist U.S. nation in a European war. Recent discoveries of tons of ammunition and explosives on the Lusitania shows the Democrats were and are willing to sacrifice thousands of lives in their sick and depraved globalist agenda in collusion with top international banks. Wilson withdrew destroyer escorts and sent the Lusitania directly into enemy submarine waters, murdering thousands of people to enrage the public.

Continued false flags and sacrifices have accompanied solely Democrat Administrations since then. You are toys to them: Disposable toys, which is why they would now go to great conflict with the courageous and dependable people of Russia in order to steal and sell your natural resources to deny a free market from lowering your natural gas prices, e.g. Russia building a new LNG pipeline into Europe and lowering gas prices there by 50% cannot be tolerated by the U.S. deep state and banker desire to control the European prices by shipping OUR surpluses for sale there. Democrat and globalist policies will stop at nothing to maintain their criminal control of your resources, even your death.

The US could have had an influence in Syria during Obamas term but he wouldnt commit to it.The war in Syria will last for decades and Russia is mired down in it.Russia is nearly broke and not a major theat.The major threat to the United States is China and their qwest for world dominance.The US needs to cut the umbilicule cord to China that drives their economy before they get any bigger.China is nobodies friend including Russia.China stole Russias intellectual property and made a clone of the SU33 known as the J15.IF the US really needs cheap goods theres plenty of countries with democratic governments that would be happy to do the manufacturing that China does now.Thats why Trumps reconsidering the TPP.

“Ruthless Syrian Dynasty” is in Syrian peoples' eyes heroic family, which fought Western colonizing powers fearlessly all throughout history, and Assad is doing just the same now. Colonizers are back, but brave Syrian leader persisted in defending his nation, and won!!!

Your country infiltrated Al-Qaida, who was doing beheading of Christians in Syria. Now two former colonizers, and one new one did bombings. Yet, you are out of luck in Syria, as leader of Syria is so much more intelligent than his attackers are.

Obama had influence in Syria! Obama cooked up the war in Syria with the goal to overthrow legitimate government of Syria. Don’t you recall how Obama was screaming:“Assad must go!?” He assigned CIA covert operations, and later he infiltrated ISIS into Syria; and implanted the US soldiers into Syria, despite the objections of Syrian government. Plus, Obama formed Western Coalition, which was training and arming anti Assad fighters in NATO bases in Turkey, and which was also flying from NATO bases in Turkey, and bombed Syria. They were allegedly bombing ISIS, but were mostly bombing Syria’s villages, and Assad’s forces.

Russia is country from the region. From Moscow to Damascus is one day drive by car. Russia has been friend with Syria for more than 60 years, and was using Syria’s port in Tartus since the time of USSR. Syrian government asked Russia for help.

Syrian war is over. Terrorists are defeated. But, the West does not want to accept it, and doesn’t want to get their soldiers home. Thus, the West is trying to prolong the war for Syrians, who already suffered too much.

Neither Russia nor China is the threat to the US. These are the countries that try to elevate the living standards of their people, and do not strive for competition with others. They are not colonizing nations, like the Western colonizing powers are, and therefore they do not have that militaristic and combative attitude to other countries. You just think in terms of Western mentality.

That's a typically poor analysis. The military advertures were never about regime change / democracy building, any more than they were really about "WMDs" or "chemical weapons" or "harboring terrorists," etc. The "regime change" mantra is just another MacGuffin (with most of your examples) while the actual aims and purposes usually remain unremarked upon.

You the village idiot is nuttier than ever by saying everything was done by Obama.

For all facts showing, everything has been said and done in Syria by Trump that Trump says Obama did not do-whatever he says related to chemical weapons, bombing, etc.

That also includes the NK criteria .

What has he accomplished by calling mission accomplished in Syria because the end is not known.
Fats are facts-Obama did not do the buildup of NK and possible war but Trump, NK has more long range nukes , none compared to Obama time ,yet they would call losing things Trump does as accomplishing.

Is this NK accomplishment by hiding nukes or Trump:Trump to call NK thing is to build up nukes by calling meeting while NK wants lots of money ,yet the end is not there .
