Trump Considers Military Strike Against Syria

According to several sources within the administration, President Donald Trump is seriously considering military action against the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad after a chemical weapons attack killed scores of people and drew international condemnation. CNN reported Thursday that Trump had spoken to several Republicans on Capitol Hill about the possibility of moving forward with a strike.

From CNN:

The source said the President had not firmly decided to go ahead with it but said he was discussing possible actions with Defense Secretary James Mattis.

Trump is relying on the judgment of Mattis, according to the source.

US officials tell CNN the Pentagon has long-standing options to strike Syria’s chemical weapons capability and has presented those options to the administration.

The sources stressed a decision has not been made.

On Wednesday, it was obvious that the attack, which claimed the lives of more than 70 people, struck a nerve with the businessman-turned-president.

“Yesterday’s chemical attack, a chemical attack that was so horrific in Syria – against innocent people, including women, small children, and even beautiful little babies – their deaths were an affront to humanity,” Trump said in a press conference with King Abdullah of Jordan. “These heinous actions by the Assad regime cannot be tolerated. The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this horrific attack.”

While a military strike is on the table – and supported by some in Congress, including Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham – it will not be an easy decision to make. Trump has been forthright when it comes to his view of military intervention in the Middle East, and there is very little public appetite for another war in the desert.

Then there is the issue of Russia, which is currently supporting Assad. A U.S. strike against Syria could be seen as a proxy strike against Russia, raising the stakes to an almost unimaginable degree. And while it’s possible – probable, even – that Putin would back down in the face of a U.S.-led military invasion, there’s always the chance that he wouldn’t. That could lead Trump to face two stark choices: Back down on the global stage…or go to war with a nuclear-armed country.

Military intervention, of course, does not need to mean a full-scale war. The U.S. could launch calculated strikes against Assad’s air force, effectively grounding them and rendering his most valuable military asset obsolete. But then, if Putin simply lets his air force become Syria’s, it may be for nothing.

The best case scenario at this point is for Trump to find a way to divide Putin from Assad, and that’s going to be complicated when there’s all this heat surrounding the 2016 election. Perhaps Democrats will see that their silly allegations are obscuring a viable path forward on Syria and start governing again.

But probably not.

  1. The way to divide Assad from Putin is to promote the disinformation that Assad will never abdicate to any Russian attempt to rule or control any part of Syria.

    • Michael Dennewitz

      This country took care of Japan, no? Drop several on Syria….end of story..??

      • Why? Syria is fighting a civil war. Those are ugly but none of our business. Using nukes to defend ISIS makes NO SENSE. Besides, if the muslim sectarians kill each other, there will be fewer left to fight when we have to defend ourselves against them.

        • I am pretty sure he was trying to be flippant and funny when he suggested nuclear weapons….nobody can be THAT stupid….on the other hand you are Trump supporters so I should not assume anything.

          • Better to be a Trump supporter than a Obama supporter who let this get out of hand by not Stopping ISIS the day they walked into Iraq . Blame the right people , Clinton would have been no better than Obama in this situation or did you forget her role in Obamas operation .

          • I am not a supporter of Obama international policies
            Daesh or ISIS would not be around if we had left Saddam in power and/or supported Assad at the beginning of the uprising.
            Any power vacuum is abhorred by nature and not every population manages a peaceful democratic form of government. We screwed with Iraq and now is coming back to bite us.
            Daesh was born after the US disbanded the Iraqi army, put lots of them together in the same camps in Iraq and gave power to the Shiite without any consideration of what those guys were going to do to the Sunni.
            At this point, ISIS are brutal religious fanatics and must be gone, but all this could have been avoided.

          • Obama Screwed up with Iraq when he took office just like he screwed up with ISIS calling them JV and letting them invade Iraq .

          • Obviously you are stuck and unable to function
            BTW…ISIS started in Iraq…..but WTH, you are retired and unwilling to learn anything new
            Obama is also guilty for the Common Cold and Zika….happy, grandpa?

          • The tribal wars have been for centuries . Isis problem goes back old man Bush just under different names along the way , you forget how they are getting funded and the supplies, to do the world wide destruction . Have you forgotten about planes falling out of the sky and bombings world wide this goes back over 50 years . Your last part shows pure Ignorance and arrogance .

          • ding dong dong thinks isis rags started in Iraq..too bad he does not know that they left syria because Iraq was recovering well and they needed to rob banks, take over refineries, rape children, murder gays, and blow up what they did not need…

          • germysmithinsky thinks that the DON declared war…probably thought the same thing about GWB…forgetting the fact that the USA has NOT declared war since 1941…

        • rivahmitch: It is to get the assholes in the middle east out of our hair!!!

        • Yup! let the Sand Monkees kill each other off. No Down Side there!

      • Michael: exactly what I said, and through out the middle east! FUCK THEM ALL!!!

    • Trump seems to be making the same mistakes as Obama and his red lines…..If he really care so much about Syrian babies he could let the families and their babies come into the safety of the US. No war refugee has EVER committed any terrorist attack against the US…worry about our “friends” the Saudis, Pakistanis and Egyptians…but maybe he has properties in those countries and that is why there is no ban for them..

      Back on subject. Trump will do NOTHING in Syria that may ran foul with Putin and if he is really worry about America first, keeps your eyes in North Korea

      • You make about as much sense as a wet dream . You have no Clue what Obama and Hillary organized in that area . Why are we the US the ones responsible instead of the Arabs . You just don’t get it all they care about is the flow of oil . The Arabs could have Cut ISIS of right in the beginning , but no they let us do the dirty work for them . You have forgotten how the US got treated from them in the 70s. Maybe you should go live there or in Russia seeing you hate the US .

        • if the USA had had a president from 2009 to that time the isis rags could have been roasted on the border as they entered Iraq…but the african, germysmithinsky’s boy, “did not have a strategy” for the JV team…

      • The difference between Trump’s red lines and Obama red line is that if you cross Trump’s red line he does something about it and Obama did nothing.

        Trump isn’t worried about Putin, in fact he didn’t ask Russia if he could launch missiles, he told Russia to stay out of the way.

  2. Any US official giving information to CNN should be identified and fired.

    • Hell no , they get shot for treason , end of story . After a few are gone it will stop .

      • Yep, we need a “firing squad express” line for these fools. We can place Ms. Rice at the head of the line.

      • How I wish that all of those idiots who said that they were moving to Canada, or somewhere else, if Trump was elected, would have done so! The country would be better off without them!

        • Craig Vandertie

          Yes, Canadian Immigration services would have had real fun going through all the red tape of having them deported with all the Cockroaches that fled up there.

      • Nothing like a wall to stand them up against and a few “Candies” fired their ways!!

    • …and hanged!

    • I think they should be set ablaze, left to cook a bit then, when it is safe to do so, beat the flames out with ice picks.

      • You display wonderful sadistic qualities.
        maybe you ought to move to Kansas and apply for the job of a Serial Killer. they missed the Clown that was doing that job before.
        Most likely Trump himself leaked it…..still want to BBQ your God?

        • Or he could work for the TSA.

        • Craig Vandertie

          The next BTK, and people think I am being cruel when I mention bringing back the Guillotine for those like the illegal Kenyan “Moonie Muslime” terrorist and that She Demon Succubus bitch Killary, public execution of course, it would be far quicker than burning such despicable individuals alive.

      • germysmithinsky wanted the pantsuited criminal ho for his queen…well actually he wanted his chocolate bunny to stay in office, but the bunny kept wandering off on golfing and bowing to dicktator vacations…so the ho was the next best moron pick of the day..we need more willy peter to send to the rags…it burn longer and brighter..

      • This is TRULY why God created Napthalene (lighter fluid).

    • You are so naive !!!
      That was leak by the WH themselves to keep Assad guessing….it is the military job to study the possibility anyway
      Trump is NOT going to do anything. Any military action against Assad and he is in danger of killing Russians, and will piss Putin off….which is the last thing he wants to do

      • You forget Russia would not be there if Obama and Hillary had done their job to contain ISIS . How many refugees has Russia taken in ???

        • As I replied to you before, there would be NO ISIS if we did not invaded Iraq
          Obama won by promising our troops out of Iraq and the SOFA (which agreed for our troops to leave at a date) was negotiated and signed by Bush jr

          You can not contain ISIS unless you are willing to deploy American ground troops

          Sometimes I fail to understand the logic of conservatives. Always willing to send our kids (and treasure) into harm way to countries we have no interests in or sometimes do not even know where they are, BUT are afraid of a few Muslim families with children that have been vetted for over a year and pose no threats…
          BTW, …nothing new. same as they were afraid of the Drunken Criminal Irish OR the Anarchist Italians or the Polish or the Germans…you think they would learn that there is NO America without new blood and new culture feeding our drive

          • The first time Obama won because he was called a black American , the second time he won by fraud with Judges blocking voter ID laws . These refugees are cowards that left the wives and Children behind with the aid of the UN . You must not have contacts in the EU as to the problems they are . You have forgotten about the Cubans that Castro emptied out the prisons with and landed in the US. Then there were the Mongs . The killings and robberies by them , our state took many of them . Living in Florida you should know about all the problems with Illegals .

          • You are insane…Obama won handily both times….Obama won IN SPITE he was black
            I think you MAY BE a racist
            What problems with illegals?
            Illegals in Florida mostly work in agriculture OR are escaping Venezuela or Colombia or Brazil and taking advantage of investors visas buying property in Miami, Miami Beach and Weston
            Our problems with illegals are real estate prices too expensive for new working buyer to afford.
            Most of the Cubans that came were NOT criminals (the criminals are now in jail) and even some of the people from jails were political prisoners
            The Mongs? You mean the Hmong from Vietnam? Our allies that were hung to dry after they fought at our side and we left them behind? I do not think we had any more problems with them that we had with the Irish, Jewish and Italian gangsters (still do) …but I guess those were whites so you are OK with that?

          • Like I told you our state took in Hmongs and Cuban refugees and they were a lot of Problems . The Hmongs ruined one of our very nice and safe cities . As far as Obamas win I gave you the facts, we had busses rolling in from neighboring states into the black communities to vote , thanks to federal judges reversing Voter ID laws and after the election was over they were re instated . So what part of that don’t you understand . Hillary Lost because of sanders and Voter ID laws were left standing That is how she lost the Electoral Vote .

          • the penis noggins that supported the african and the criminal hore, clintoney, do not know what fraud means…germysmithinsky probably thinks that that is some kind of ocean fish..with a flat head..

          • Playing the race card. Btw you left out Haitians.

          • Everyone should know by now that a liberal couldn’t talk if they had to leave out the word “RACIST.”

          • are those the folks that billy “the rapist traitor” and his ho leg humper screwed during the aftermath of the hurricane ?? germy probably thinks that they went over there on a humanitarian mission..instead of a photo op for the hore..

          • wow all you Demoncrats are idiots. Obama is half white so what are we racist to the white part or the black. The only Racist people in the world are you Demoncrats. The way you operate is to accuse republicans of the things you are doing so you can cover it up. You Demoncrats are evil and God is taking this country back from you.

          • Craig Vandertie

            Projecting the worst of their character flaws onto others, Paranoid Schizophrenics tend to do that.

          • A BIG ARTICAL AND VIDEO OF BARACK OBAMA’S GRAND MOTHER. SHE SAID SHE WITNESSED THE BIRTH OF BARRY SORROS IN KENYA. THE DAMN MUSLIM WAS NEVER AN AMERICAN BORN. TRUMP PULLED BACK AND LIED TO PROTECT HIS RUN FOR THE SEAT IN OFFICE.SO ALL THE GUN BANS AND OTHER CRAP HE SIGNED SHOULD BE REMOVED AND HE SHOULD BE PUNISHED FOR TREASON AND LIEING.

          • What did he say that was racist? Maybe it’s you that has a problem with race. What’s the problem with illegals? They cost the taxpayer from 150-$300 billion dollars a year. NYC is a sanctuary city and illegals cost them $7.6 billion a year. Illegals are also 31% of the prison population and a lot of them belong to MS13. That’s the problem with illegals.

          • Craig Vandertie

            At least the vast majority of the NYPD is smart enough to realize how much of a threat to themselves and the public those illegal aliens that ICE has requested be detained, defying de Blasio, the NYPD Commissioner and Chief, good for them.

          • Craig Vandertie

            The Hmongs that were hung out to dry, get a grasp on reality, like the south Vietnamese army they randomly switched sides, and as far as that illegal Kenyan nationalist “Moonie Muslime” Barack Osama is concerned the vast majority of votes cast for him was due to illegal aliens, dead people, people voting in more than 1 state or district and house pets.

            You Demoncommiecrats are so intranced and corrupt the only cure for your disease is death.

          • YOU HAVE YOUR HISTORY BACK WORD. THEN YOU INSULTED MY FAMILY. I’M SICICILAN. THE ITALIANS MADE THIS COUNTRY WEALTHY WITH THE MAFIA. ALL THE POLITICIANS IN THERE POCKETS. NOW WE HAVE A NEW MAFIA, THE CLINTON CARTEL. BA FUNGU, STUNAVA!!

          • Craig Vandertie

            Hmongs started arriving on U.S. shores in 1975 the Cuban criminals did not arrive here until sometime between 1977 and 1981, seems the dregs of society are the vast majority of what our government allows in, now it is the “Moonie Muslimes” and the Mexicans.

          • SCAR FACE!! GOOD EXSAMPLE!

          • Right, I get it. If General Washington didn’t cross the Potomic none of this snowflake whining would occur. George Bush did it.. he did it…he’s hiding under your bed just seething and waiting to lie to you about weapons of mass destruction. And he personally was flying both planes that struck the WTC, right? I know he did it, despite the WMDs the military found in Iraq. And now, that nasty Trump, in less than two months, has reduced illegal aliens crossing our borders by %67… the nerve of these guys… no wonder America is rolling their eyes at them.

          • Invading Iraq was a mistake just like taking out Gadaffi was a mistake because in both cases obama’s JV team ISIS filled the void. Hillary and obama are both responsible for the millions of refugees invading Europe which has cost hundreds of lives in Europe. They are also responsible for the genocide in the ME. We don’t need the refugees here in the US.

        • “Contained”? I would say Hiliery obama and McCain armed and trained Isis. With help from isreal and Saudi.

          • As long as the Arab oil flows they will just sit back and let others do the dirty work . They sit on big piles of money that could end all the problems in the middle east .

        • Craig Vandertie

          Do you mean how many were they smart enough not to take in, that would be none, a very wise move on their part.

      • I hear Tomahawk missiles being fired. Could that be because you were WRONG?

        NO! SAY IT ISN’T SO, MARGARET! 😛

      • Craig Vandertie

        Germansmith bet you and everyone who was following the alleged gas bombing of Syrian citizens by Bashar al-Assad who did not believe Mr. Trump would do anything without the approval of Congress now feel like total fools.

    • fired no, fired upon yes

    • Ready, Aim…

    • Craig Vandertie

      Most definitely, because even if it was not Bashar al-Assad who was behind gassing those people no foreign press or government should be made privy to intended U.S. Military strikes sanctioned by the POTUS.

      Even if the POTUS did absolutely nothing wrong that is not the way the Lamestream media will spin it.

    • GOOD POINT.

    • and FIRED UPON!!!

  3. I DO NOT THINK SUSAN RICE HAD DONE THAT.I THINK THE PRIE ADMENASTRATION HAD ALOT TO DO WITH WHAT WAS SAID OR DONE! SHE IS VERY BRITE AN HAS ALOT OF ANSWERS ON THE FAR EAST SOMEONE IS REALY WANTING HER OUT OF OFFICE SO SHE WANT BE ABLE TO HELP PRESIDENT TRUMP MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. FOR I SEE KNOW ONE TRYING TO WORK WITH THE PRESIDENT. IT TAKES ALL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TOO HELP HIM DO HIS JOB TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. WOULD YOU SAY THAT IF THE EASTERN COUNTRYS START DOING WHAT THEY’ER DOING OVER THERE HOW WOULD YOU FEEL THEN WOULD YOU WORK WITH THE PRESIDENT THEN. SO WHATS RONG WITH YOU PEOPLE ARE YOU JUST WANTING YOUR PART OF THE PIE OR YOU GOING TO HELP THE PRESIDENT CHANGE THINGS THAT ARE NOT RIGHT. AS FOR SUSAN I THINK SHE WOULD BE A GREAT ASSET TO THE PRESIDENT ADVICE ON FOREN AFFAIRES SHE IS VERY SMART. I THINK SHE WAS LEFT AS A EXCAPE GOAT FROM THE PAST. PRESIDENT TRUMP MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ON THIS GREAT TASK FOR THE PEOPLE THAT SUPPOSE TO WORK WITH YOU ARE SITTING ON THERE HANDS. GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES AND THE LEADERS FOR THE JOB IS GOING TO BE TUFF. USMC PVT CJ LEE

    • The BIGGEST obstruction to Trump is The MEDIA – Schumer -Pelosi and the Clintons with the OWO and the UN. Obama was their biggest puppet .

    • Michael Dennewitz

      WTF did you learn english? ???

      • check out his last sentence….USMC..I do not agree with Lee about suzi, my feelings are that she is a hore, but that is just me…

    • You need to go back and finish the 6th grade. Your post is nearly impossible to read. Much less understand what you were trying to say.

    • Crandall,
      Using all caps does not make what you are trying to say any more believable, but it does make it MUCH harder to read. Do you see what I just did? I used caps on one word to add emphasis. Many people (frequently myself included) will just ignore posts written in caps. They’re just too hard to read.

      I also agree with others who posted that you really should try to learn the English language before you post on an English site.

      • look at the last sentence.or sign off line..it seems as though Mr. Lee is a Trump supporter, wish that he was not giving suzi so much rope….a lot of things can go wrong while the new administration is dealing with the democrapo scum…GWB experienced the distraction by the fat ahole alfonse gorehole and did not REMOVE the scum from the clintoney crime spree..

  4. WELL HOW QUICK DO WE FOR GET. THE PEOPLE WHO WHERE BURNT AN STARVED TO DEATH. AN KNOWN USING GAS AGAINST WOMEN AN CHILDERN AN THE PEOPLE OF HIS COUNTRY THIS DICTATOR CARES NOTHING ABOUT HIS PEOPLE.OPEN YOUR EYES PEOPLE IT’S ABOUT WHO IS THE STRONGEST TO SURVIE AND GO ALONG WITH WHAT THIS DICTATOR WANTS AN IF RUSSIA IS HELPING HIM THEN THERE NO BETTER. THESE ARE THIRD WORLD COUNTRYS TRYING TO TAKE CONTROLL OF THE WORLD AN ANY ONE WHO GETS IN THERE WAY DO AWAY WITH THEM. GODS PEOPLE GOD SAID WHO TAKE UP ARMS AGAINST HIS PEOPLE WILL BE DELT WITH AN I WOULDN’T WANT GOD MAD AT ME. WHAT ASSAD IS DOING IS WRONG.

  5. Hypocrite! Trump spent the last seven years telling President Obama to stay away from Syria. He said it was not our problem. He’s an asshole and he’s a hypocrite. He doesn’t know which way is up. He’s the last person in the world who can solve this problem. If he was really interested in making a difference for the better he will be calling out Putin. Putin is an enabler for Assad. Now Trump is equally guilty.

  6. Why would you bother to quote CNN?

  7. Trump better check with his Bro. Vlad since Vlad is supporting al Asaad don’t want to piss the Bro. off.

  8. Mr. Trump, don’t do it. It is a set up.

  9. Donald DeLauder

    We need to help the Syrian people retake control of their country with us supplying airstrikes against radicalized Muslims

    • What Syrians are you referring to? The women and children left behind by all the men who ran away and called themselves refugees? If we bomb Assad, we are supporting ISIS. Those remaining in Syria need to get a hold of their men and have them come back home so that they can fight their own war. We have no business getting involved. Let they kill themselves off. If Syrians don’t care enough to try to fight for their country, why should we?

      • ABSOLUTELY!

      • yes and round up every refugee man and woman that can hold a gun…can run and we already know they are healthy and can easily walk long distances passing up several peaceful safe countries….to invade europe in large masses…

        send them to defend their country…. and people!!!!

        give them each two weeks basic training…and weapons!!!!

        send them back no reason they cannot….also the ones in america…the older ones can take care of their kids….

      • If you would read my post, I never said to bomb Assad. What I said was to bomb radicalized Muslims (ISIS). If we just sit around and do nothing, then radicalized Muslims (ISIS) will get stronger and stronger. Then they will get into the USA through our unfenced borders, then they will set off pipe bombs KILLING USA Citizens, shoot innocent USA Citizens, and even make crude nuclear bombs and set them off inside the USA. We have to stop radicalized Muslims.
        This has nothing to do with saving Syria, it has everything to do with stopping radicalized Muslims.

    • No, we do NOT owe them anything, except a few hundred thousand of their “refugees” returned ASAP!

  10. Nope. There is plenty of work to do here.

  11. No, no and NOOOO!!!! Its always (not) OUR responsibility!!!
    Also, demotards, do you think we located those Iraqi weapons of mass destruction quite yet?

  12. Let’s just drone Assad and his top staff. Less casualties.

  13. Please, do not bomb Syria, There are Russian troops in Syria, the consequences of bombing are not clear.

    • Russia would not be there , thank Obama for that one .

      • You shut the fuck up, too. I’m sick of all the unwarranted hatred.

        • Another idiot that can not stand the facts . stick a pipe up your rear and light the fuse .

        • Yes sensible and level headed Americans are sick of all the unwarranted HATE to our President. He has sacrifice everything to save our Country from collapse. Our country and Constitution has been under left wing attacks since 1913. This was the year our country tool the first left under Woodrow Wilson, the second left under FDR, the third left under LBJ and the fourth left under Obama…Hillary would had finish the destruction. THANKS GOD for Trump…he is a true Patriot!!!

      • yes if the USA had a president between GWB and Trump a lot of good things would have happened…and a lot of the rag bad things would not have happened…but little erici has his diaper full because his hoped for mommy, the ho clintoney, did not win the oral office big chair and the other clown, kenyan boyo has run away to play more golf….erici must feel abandoned…sure smells like it…

  14. Mr. President, your judgment on Syria has been right all along – don’t get involved in Syria at all. Don’t let emotions over the gas attack cloud it. It is a complete miasma that will drag your administration and the country down. Completely disavow any action with respect to Syria or refugees except through intermediaries completely independent of your administration.

  15. We should quickly train Syrians to fight and send them back to retake their own country. Maybe then they will appreciate it more!

  16. Our President only bombed an airfield in Syria, that’s all.

  17. This saddens me. No one talks of military strikes to save the Christians being burned alive and tortured and beheaded by ISIS. Trump campaigned against this sort of military action in Syria.

  18. Don’t consider it Mr President. It’s all a hoax. We DON’T want war with Russia. Because they WILL destroy us.
    Assad has done NOTHING wrong.

  19. Chemical attack is an attack against humanity and should be dealt with harshly, save a couple missiles for Monsanto, we’ve been under poison chemical attack from them for years.

  20. Did we vote for the wrong guy? DJT looked sooooo clever and now taking advice from an idiot like James Mattis? Did Saudis pay him like they did with HC to protect ISIS? The last thing we need is war with Russia over some fuckup muzzienazifascists.

  21. Anyone who as a leader of a country who would use chemical weapons on their own people should suffer the identical treatment themselves. The cruelty of these type of barbarians has no bounds.

    In the nineteen thirties we (America) ignored hitlers rise to power. Because of our apathy millions including many Americans died. In some cases like the NYT hitler was actually praised as was stalin. After all we were in the throws of a very deep depression. To Americans we had more important things to do than guard against a barbarian like hitler and his henchman thousands of miles away. And no it is not Americans duty to protect those who refuse to (or maybe can’t) protect themselves. All have been disarmed by their government. I surely hope the Australians never regret giving up their ability to self protect. However, I suspect they will. I have heard they already do but it will get worse it always does. It is just a matter of time.

    No one wants America to be the police force of the world however, until an organization like the United Nations actually does its job (which I think will never happen) these type of barbaric actions will continue because there are dictators who weld power and are scared to death of losing their positions of power. Fear is the factor that drives many dictators to murder its own citizens. It did with hitler and it also did with stalin most if not all dictators think everyone is out to get them. In many, if not all, cases justifiably.

    No organization like the United Nations will ever prevent or be successful in prohibiting warring factions. Dictators and wars will continue and people like these Syrians will suffer a horrible death due to these barbaric dictators like assad. What assad did is a horrendous crime and must not stand. He must be punished for his crimes upon humanity. The League of Nations did not work and neither does the United Nations. Organizations like the United Nations become rest homes for powerful wealthy narcissists. Who take turns leading.

    Russia more specifically Putin is missing a chance not often presenting itself to become a recognized world leader right now. His military are in Syria and he has a perfect opportunity to stop such actions that assad just did. Putin has the chance right now to show world wide leadership by forbidding assad to go unpunished. It was just demonstrated to him what a moral world leader does by President Donald J Trump. Perhaps he will get on board and become a world leader as well. We should all hope so.

  22. Indeed any “official” giving info is in line for treason!

  23. Not one single thing, let me repeat “NOT ONE SINGLE THING”, reported by CNN, commonly referred to as “The Clinton News Network” can be trusted as having one iota of credibility. This is probably the most bias network on TV and has nothing but mindless, radical, Left Wing morons on their news staff. Not one single person in this country who has more than an ounce of brains believes anything they have to say. If they ever reported the time of day I would have to double check my watch to make sure they weren’t lying.

  24. Whatever CNN reports belongs in the gossip column, at best!

  25. Honey Boo Boo, dead at thirteen. More to follow.

  26. Craig Vandertie

    This is old news since Tomahawk missiles were fired at a Syrian military airfield on Thursday evening, Patriot News Daily needs to get up to speed.

  27. My initial reply to the headline would be:

    And your point is… what? What’s the problem?

  28. I hope Trump restates draft, and makes all little punks like protest go army

  29. Blow Syria up. No big loss. DO IT. It would send a MESSAGE to the WORLD. WE, have to get OUR respect back. That would go a long way in doing just that.

  30. Kim Jong Un does executions right ! We should follow suit

  31. This is no easy quandry. Your damned if you do and damned if you don’t. Too bad those idiot liberals couldn’t have found some Disabled Vet cause to keep them busy. Oh forgot. Libs don’t know what a Disabled Vet is, therefore they’d offer no help of any kind.

    But, say the libs didn’t “go there” abt Russia and the election. P.T. and Putin wouldn’t have any disagreement brewing. Not smart thinking Libs. How’s it working for you hopping around on one foot with your other foot imbedded permanently in your mouth? No comment? Maybe it’s your foot that’s causing the issues? No. Wrong again. It’s no gray matter in la cabesa!

    Yes indeedy! Instead of singing comebia in the conga line they can put Rice at the front chained together and the natural weight of things will pull them into the firey pit. The devils advocates will be singing = Im On That Highway To Hell. Its time someone was charged with treason and locked up for 30 years at least or hung! Ive had enough of you guttless preppy mellenials. The free ride is over youre going to find out what its like getting a blister doing honest work. Johnson started this free lunch and housing some 49 years ago. Its time to put an end to it. The government hand outs was only supposed to be a temporary thing.

    From what I have read this is Hillary’s fault because she got the chemicals to Assad.

  34. This post area is for a possible attack on Syria and not about Susan Rice. That was the previous story. No we shouldn’t attack Syria unless it’s about attacking the real evil in that area which is ISIS and other radical Islamic groups there.

  35. Call it anything you want, it’s still war. Benjamin Franklin said this: There never was a good war or a bad peace. It’s worth thinking about before we get all riled up.

  36. It seems that MORE O VOMIT MOLES are still Hanging Around before getting WHACKED!!… So may be a few More SURGICAL Tomahawks HITS and Assad air force will be down to ZERO

    Rep. WILSON didn’t lie when he called OBAMA A LIAR. Now we have loud mouths in ( D.C. ) that can’t keep quite these days.
