Mission Accomplished? Commander Cuckoo’s Real Motivation For Bombing Syria

by David P. Greenberg

On Friday night, Trump bombed Syria. So, today, he’s all like, “Mission accomplished.” and “It was the best bombing in the history of the world. Nobody’s ever seen bombing like this before. Blee-me.”

But there are three questions we must ask ourselves:

1. What is Trump’s real motivation here? He doesn’t know where Syria is, he thinks Assad is a true “Leader,” and he wouldn’t know a “chemical weapon” if one pissed in his mouth.

I think this is partially distraction. Look, Trump is virtually plagued with scandals. The Russia investigation, Stormy, Comey’s book, his “Fixer’s” arrest… the list goes on. Lie after lie is becoming undone, and each truth is leading to another thread of lies and deceits. The Republicans are jumping ship like rats leaving the Titanic.

We know that Trump doesn’t give a shit about children – especially swarthy brown ones. So, we need to ask ourselves why this “crisis” really is a crisis. Or IF it’s one at all. The man who would never telegraph his actions telegraphed the shit outta this.

Assad and Putin both were warned days in advance. Last week, Trump told us he’d singlehandedly defeated ISIS, but this morning his Generals said ISIS remains the #1 target in Syria.

The question when dealing with someone like Trump must always be – what do YOU have to gain. Because if Trump doesn’t see a quantifiable and personal gain, he’s not going to do anything. He works for himself. So, again. What is his REAL motivation behind this?

2. The second question is, how do we even know if any of this is true? With Trump, we really can’t know if Assad did anything, nor can we know if the attack was successful. In fact, we don’t even REALLY know if there was an attack at all.

The whole fuckin’ thing could be stock footage. Trump has told 3,000 DOCUMENTED lies, just since the coups d’état… I mean, the election. Trump’s primary disseminator of “news” is the “National Enquirer” for Christ’s sake. The paper is most well known for pairing Elvis’ ghost with Lobster-boy. If Mueller isn’t the one saying it – I’m not believing a word.

3. And lastly, we need to ask ourselves how we as a nation can rally behind a leader whose every action is followed by the above two questions.

After December 7th, when FDR made the “Day of Infamy” announcement, the nation pulled together like no nation in history ever had. We put aside our differences and joined in the fight. But we knew FDR was telling us the truth. And we knew he wasn’t doing it to develop financing for a bankrupt casino somewhere.

With Trump, we know none of that.

    Love your articles David but Bro, we need a new strategy to defeat these pro Trump kooks and the evil bastards that manipulate them. Instead of demanding Trump go to Congress for a resolution before ordering bombs, the Dems should have demanded he nuke the shit out of these no good heathen mother fuc&ers.
    Instead of (rightfully so) decrying the ill advised tax cut that his base voters of bigots, homophobes and other assorted kooks benefitted an average of maybe $12 a week, Dems should have demanded an abolition of all taxes. Think of how much tax revenue that would have created if one were to subscribe to republican tax cut theory.
    The key words we need to use when talking to these deluded fools that vote Trump and republican even though I truly believe they know that it is not in their interests are these: “Common Sense”
    Republicans use their codes so everyone knows their policies are really to screw over Blacks and Mexicans. Or benefit hell out of the rich and powerful while rewarding their base voters enough to buy ab extra pack or two of cigarettes a week. We on the left need our own code. No matter what your side or politics, we all want to be in on the scheme. Makes us feel powerful or like we matter. Dems have the history to make the kooks join our side. Harry Truman was a Democrat and ordered the A-bomb dropped on the Japanese whom we hated at the time. If I remember my history it was republicans who were mostly isolationists which Dems could easily equate as a synonym for pussy. I can think of no better way to gain respect for the Gay community and put republicans in their place by having a Purple Heart decorated Gay Veteran do an ad calling republicans pussies because republicans like the pussy John Bolton and Dick Cheney and Donald Trump dodge the draft while brave Gay men that hate pussies fight our wars.
    We need to do a better job promoting gun ownership among women and minorities also. Great propaganda piece of a Black family leaving Sunday services with AR-15’s strapped to their backs. The only thing that stops a bad Christian with a gun is a family of good Christians with guns. That’s just common sense.

      Joe, it’s funny because people are actually starting to look at guys like “W” and even Reagan – and seeing them as moderates. The inmates have taken control of the asylum. We are living in the “Upside down.” It’s the “Biff Tannen” universe. In fact, I read that Robert Zemeckis modeled “Broken Timeline Biff” off of Trump, and that was – what – 30 years before the Election?

      I don’t see this as a Democrat v. Republican issue. I don’t see it as a Liberal v. “Conservative” issue. I see it as an anachronism. A chem-trail in a Western. A cowboy shaving with a Bowie knife.

      America’s Director needs to cut all the footage from 2016-on and reshoot the movie.

        Yep. I’m now an apologist for Bush and Reagan thanks to the idiot in the WH. Who would have ever thought?

    Yeah. We live in a crazy world and society. Nobody likes the bully but it seems we all want to be one. I often wonder if Jimmy Carter had just turned Iran into a parking lot and allowed the hostages to be martyrs if Reagan and the generations of republican nuttery would have not happened.

      We do live in a crazy world. In 1999 if I had been told a nutbar like Dubya would ever be president I would have laughed in their faces. Then it happened and I was seriously what the fuck!? Then we had a decent 8 years under the Muslim Christian Barack Obama, then we all know what happened, and I was like: what in the crazy world of all what the fucks has happened? Seriously, this was the giant celestial body of what the fucks. I believe I’m still gobsmacked over it.

    All of this is a distraction from his never ending corruption, ALL OF IT. He figures I’ll do it because one of his toadies has told him, he’ll get a bump in the polls being a “war president” I’m guessing he has no idea how the phrase Mission Accomplished went down just a few years ago and said to himself, yeah that’s good I’ll use that again. funny how couple weeks ago he was all for pulling out, his daddy should have done that, but Bolton has been in his job less than a week and now we are dropping bombs. Bolton has never met a war he does not like, unless it was Vietnam and he got out of that one. I hate these fuckers and I mean hate them, with the heat of a thousand suns.

    Bolton loves wars he doesn’t have to physically participate in.
