Obama - Draws a red line if chemical weapons are used. Chemical weapons are used killing around 1,400. Obama does nothing.

Trump - Doesn't draw a red line and attacks Syria by surprise, taking out the facility that held chemical weapons used to kill women and children.

If Mad Dog has no doubt it was Assad, it's better to strike quickly and neutralize. The chem. weapons were suppose to be gone and evidently they're not. Will Putin back away from Assad?

Post Re: Trump attacks Syria

Trump issued a statement:
My fellow Americans, on Tuesday, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians using a deadly nerve agent. Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women, and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many — even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror.
Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. It is in the vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.
There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the UN Security Council. Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically. As a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies.
Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria, and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types. We ask for God’s wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world. We pray for the lives of the wounded and the souls of those who have passed, and we hope that as long as America stands for justice then peace and harmony will prevail. Good night, and God bless America and the entire world. Thank you.
President Trump Issues a Statement After Ordering an Attack on Syria

putin probably gassed those folks or ordered Assad to do it. Assad's azz is grass either way. i think don and vlad are running a game here to make russia and trump look good and make a lot of money...

Assad's use of sarin is such an inexplicably stupid move. It doesn't make strategic sense. Was this the first violation since 2013 or were there other chem attacks after the agreement? Our response seems appropriate.

Mike Morrell mentioned "risk aversion" and "slippery slope" policies of the previous administration.
