I’ll make this a quick fact injection so you can confront your right and left friends in the pub.
Here it is…
Trump had no input on the Tomahawk strike in Syria.
The lad was eating dessert when he found out. Not to say he’s off the hook, but it’s noteworthy that he gave the military some carte-blanche tokens to do as they please. They got excited, went nuts and threw bombs to the absolute worst place politically (were we all rational) in Syria against the (loosely) good guys.
The coolest part is that class chappies on the right who opposed overseas involvement for financial reasons domestically were – for the first time in at least 40 years – heard. The very next day, Trump said that America is not going to Syria.
Shit test of the decade! Trump tried a method – there was resistence – and now Syria is off the table.
