Trump’s decisive action against Syria wins support

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Following Tuesday’s deadly chemical weapon attack that killed at least 75 and seriously injuring scores of other innocent Syrian civilians , President Donald Trump issued this statement

“Today’s chemical attack in Syria against innocent people, including women and children, is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world. These heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution. President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a “red line” against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing. The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable attack.”

Thursday the president ordered missile strikes against the Syrian airfield from which the deadly chemical attacks were launched.

According to this April 7 Reuters news report, initial indications are that this strike has severely damaged or destroyed Syrian aircraft and support infrastructure and equipment at Shayrat Airfield, reducing the Syrian government’s ability to deliver chemical weapons,” said Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis.

Numerous allies supported Trump’s action as an “appropriate” and “just” response. 

The Telegraph, a British newspaper reports, “The UK Government fully supports the US action, which we believe was an appropriate response to the barbaric chemical weapons attack launched by the Syrian regime, and is intended to deter further attacks.”

Malcolm Turnbull, Australia’s prime minister, said that the “Australian government strongly supports the swift and just response of the United States.”

Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu also issued a statement of full support ”saying that “in both word and action” Mr Trump “sent a strong and clear message” that “the use and spread of chemical weapons will not be tolerated.”

Saudi Arabia on Friday stated it “fully supports” the strikes, saying it was a “courageous decision” by President Donald Trump in response to the use of chemical weapons against civilians.

Democrat U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, (Hawaii), condemned the attack tweeting that Trump’s military strikes in Syria are reckless and short-sighted. She followed the path of Russian President Vladimir Putin whose spokesman said the strike had seriously damaged ties between Washington and Moscow. Putin, a staunch ally of Syria’s Assad, regarded the U.S. action as “aggression against a sovereign nation” on a “made-up pretext.”

Dijon’s Grey Poupon’s mustard ad had the perfect tagline to address Gabbard’s and Putin’s responses: “But, of course.

      I am sure Trump’s popularity has sunk after his stupid careless attack.
