Did President Trump’s Decision to Launch Air Strikes on Syria Cost Him Supporters?

Sharing is Caring!

By Gabrielle Seunagal
Yesterday, President Trump announced to the world that he was ordering the launch of airstrikes on Syria after a chemical weapons attack that ended the lives of many men, women, and children in Syria. The Commander In Chief’s course of action was a surprising contrast from his campaign rhetoric of “America First” and previous 2013 tweets in which he condemned former President Obama for interfering in foreign affairs, particularly in Syria. As a result of the airstrikes, many people who were once proud Trump supporters censured him and some have even withdrawn their support, stating that his actions do not represent what they voted for.

Many Trump supporters linked his actions to ones they believe Hillary Clinton would have taken had she won the election. British vlogger, Paul Joseph Watson slammed the President as “another deep state/Neo-con puppet” and declared that he is officially off of  the Trump train. Cassandra Fairbanks, another supporter of the President stated that she might be forced to retract her alliance after last night and noted feelings of devastation. Although the President meant well, his action undoubtedly alienated a lot of supporters and could seriously wound him should he choose to run for re-election in 2020.
Many Americans view the President’s actions as government overreach and fear that launching airstrikes in Syria could engender “WWIII” which trended for several hours on Twitter last night. Although President Trump meant well, his actions could have negative impacts on our relationships with other countries around the world. Russian President Putin stated that Trump’s actions created a “significant blow” to US-Russia relations. Syria labeled the attack as “disgraceful” and Iran asserted that the airstrikes would strengthen fallen terrorists. Despite all predictions, the true consequences of the Syrian airstrikes remains to be seen.

  1. In the one area I very much hoped for some advance and change from Trump – change in America’s unprecedented new aggressiveness in the world – he has just proved himself a waste of space.
    He has set a world land-speed record for buckling to the demands of America’s unelected inner-government and doing virtually the opposite of anything for which we had reason to hope.
    In effect, in foreign affairs, we might just as well have mass-killer Obama still signing the orders for bombings and coups and drone kill lists with his big boyish smile.
    Obama is responsible for the deaths of at least half a million in his term of office during the Neocon Wars and the phony CIA-induced Arab Spring plus incalculable damage in the creation of millions of refugees and vast destruction of societies.
    Or we might just as well have the psychopath, Hillary Clinton, a woman with a record of damage and hatreds beyond telling. Her role, just at the Benghazi fiasco, has never been discussed, but thoughtful people can piece it together from scraps of information.
    She, assisted by her dead ambassador, was running a dark operation to collect weapons from the murdered Gadhafi’s Libya, where they had been spread all over the place owing to the US having dumped carloads of them in support of the same kind of rag-tag mercenaries America runs in Syria today.
    The Libyan rag-tag bunch’s job was getting rid of a decent third-world leader the US and Israel simply hated, a man who gave ordinary Libyans everything from free education to good water supplies and peace.
    Hillary was also collecting some of the murderous mercenaries. Both these things – weapons and mercenaries – were being transshipped around the Mediterranean to create the horrors we see in Syria. In the process, her ambassador was killed by some of them, who simply saw him as a more accessible and attractive target than Assad. Or perhaps they were angered by some of his demands. When you play with murderous thugs anywhere, all bets are off as to predictability.
    Those weapons’ transfer virtually certainly included amounts of Sarin gas from the dead Gaddafi’s stockpiles, which he had maintained as a counterthreat to Israel’s nuclear arsenal, and I think we all know what happened with those transferred poisons. In Libya, Syria, and others places, dear “women’s candidate,” Hillary, killed thousands of women and their children without the blink of an eye or the shedding of a tear.
    The records of those two horrors, Obama and Hillary, plus the previous monkey-brain murderer, Bush, made a fair number of us hope for some change. Trump here and there gave important clues – not formal campaign promises, but revealing personal reflections, such as asking why the whole Middle East was on fire or why America didn’t leave it to Russia to clean-up the horror in Syria – that suggested to many we could possibly see important change.
    But that has all disappeared, just vaporized, its last outburst being the administration statements about Assad’s future and Syria very shortly before the insane false-flag gas attack conducted by America’s own supported mercenaries and Trump’s insane missile attack without a shred of evidence supposedly in response and the insane shrieking, self-glorifying claims of Trump’s Nikki Haley at the UN.
    Some Russian press today call the United States the most unpredictable nation in the world, and they are absolutely right.
    As for Trump’s other, domestic issues – his dumb wall and his ranting about migrants – I have always regarded those parts of him as a waste of space.
    We know progress with great powerful states comes very slowly, always, but the hope here was that this iconoclastic billionaire just might be a serious agent of change after fifteen years of pointless wars and the birth of a new Cold War. You need a man of Trump’s tough, egocentric type to stand against the collective, entrenched monsters at CIA and the Pentagon, but he has failed us all, failed completely.
    I fear for our future, and the planet’s, now that America’s blood-lust is up, and we see virtually no strength anywhere to oppose it. Certainly, pushovers like May and Merkel and Hollande in Europe offer nothing. And the UN has been reduced by the same blood-lust to a toothless debating society.
    Russia and China offer the only real hope for getting through a long and dangerous period ahead, but I think, for many reasons, this is truer of Putin’s Russia more than Xi Jinping’s China. And that fact explains just why a new Cold War against Russia has been launched. America’s insanely ambitious and greedy establishment – perhaps best personified by the glaring image of Hillary Clinton and her regular talk of “taking out” this or that person or place – cares nothing for other nations’ views and policies, so long as they do not conflict in any way with its march towards global domination.
    As I wrote, above, concerning the dark events at Benghazi in 2012, “When you play with murderous thugs anywhere, all bets are off as to predictability.” And just so, the United States.

  2. WE the POOR US CITIZENS elected this bezare looking man to FIX OUR ROADS. He has gone off the track and thinks he i Julius F CAESAR. OK OK start the impeachment proceedings like the fags want NO HOPE for the poor citizens of the US more stupid crap and lies.

  3. There is one promise- and one only- to which I hope any new US president would adhere- his oath to protect and defend the Constitution. The previous “constitutional scholar” proved wholly ignorant of ever having made such an oath (twice), and now Trump clearly demonstrated he feels it’s something he can disregard too when it suits him.
    The truth is Syria did not attack the US, nor did they threaten to. There was no “clear and present danger” as a prerequisite to skip congressional authority for such an attack. But like the Harrison Ford movie of the same name, it’s possible the slimy ‘Deep State’ had a “chat” with the POTUS to make an offer he couldn’t refuse: act as if it was his idea all along, or go down as the least effectual president since Carter. The only difference from the movie’s plot is the US has been infiltrated by rogue criminal elements, and not Russia.

  4. Trump betrayed America. He broke his promises to make America great again and end globalism, and then he committed national and international war crimes in Syria, the act 100% AIPAC false flag terror, another psyop to foment ww3.
    I voted for Donald The Baby Killer Trump. Then, he aligned himself with the globalist war criminals Killary Benghazi Clitler Barrack Insane Obama.
    Luck Trump up too!
    “To sum up:
    1. Based on an obvious false-flag that nobody believes, Trump launched about $90 million worth of Tomahawk Cruise missiles at the Shayrat Air Base in Syria.
    2. Out of 59 missiles, only 23 actually hit the base, with most of those hitting the outskirts of the base and doing no real damage.
    3. 18 people were killed on the base, including Russian personnel. Many died fighting the fires rather than in the attack itself.
    4. Nine planes were destroyed, six of them 1960s vintage MIG-23s.
    5. The remaining 37 cruise missiles hit civilian targets including the villages of Shayrat, Al-Hamrat, and Al-Manzul, killing more civilians, including children!
    So Trump, in his faux fury over the faux Assad crime of killing civilians and children … is killing civilians and children.
    6. And the base is back in operation.”

  5. Trump has joined the fraternity of politicians who believe that when they piss on our leg, we can be convinced its raining. Make America Great Again all you peckerwoods. Trump ain’t gonna do it for ya!
