Also, tonight, McClatchy reported that the Special Counsel has evidence that Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal friend, and attorney, DID in fact, visit Prague during the presidential campaign. The administration has claimed incessantly that there is nothing to the charge of that dossier, and tonight despite all of his attempts to throw every obstacle towards those investigating the Russian meddling into our election, he is failing miserably.
You should also know, that while it IS unspeakable that the Syrian President would, in fact, use chemical weapons against his own people, he has repeatedly done so even beyond our military air raid which bombed an empty airfield last year. He has done this repeatedly and there has not been ANY response to these attacks by this administration, that is until tonight.
Why tonight? Why does Mr. Trump feel so compelled to act today, this when the President of Syria has continued using gas, chemical, and nerve agents against his own people for at least fifty times since the last confrontation last April? I will allow you, the reader to draw the conclusion to that question.
Even Niki Haley, the United States Ambassador admits this fact in front of the United Nations when she admitted that these attacks number in the fifties.
You should also be aware that it has been reported by sources close to the White House that Mr. Trump wants far wider and broader attacks on Syria than even his military advisors agree to. Sources close to the situation and White House describe Mr. Trump in a fit of rage over the Russian investigation; most certainly NOT over the gas and chemical attacks by the Syrian President.
You should also be aware that right now, as we speak, hundreds if not thousands of lives of our fellow countrymen will be in the line of fire. We need to keep them in our thoughts.
You should also know that more than likely this man is going to take this action as a way of diverting attention away from the ever-increasing scrutiny he is coming under with this Russian investigation.
You should also remember that this is a man who argued, despite the multiple gas attacks taking place in Syria over this past year, that “We need to get out of Syria within 48 hours.” These words were spoken by Mr. Trump a mere week ago.
You should also be aware that this is the same man who once again, pledged to this country during the campaign, to never disclose his military intentions only to provide wide and ample warning earlier this week to Russia, telling them earlier in the week to “get ready,” allowing that nation to move its assets outside of the current strike zone.
You should also be aware that this same man who seems so darned concerned about the crisis in Syria denies the very refugees in that country, entry into ours.
But tonight? He has issued an OPEN commitment to war in that region. No matter what the Defense Secretary states, this man, currently under this much scrutiny and pressure issued an open commitment to that region, WITHOUT allowing Congress to decide the matter, an act he not openly criticized the former President by Tweet for doing, but excoriated him in the public, calling the actions taken by the previous President as “WRONG!”
And you should also prepare yourselves for the likely prospect of hearing yet again, from conservatives across this land, these words:
“You are either with us or against us,” if you speak out against this action taken. At a minimum, the perception remains across this globe, that our reaction to Syria is premised in part or whole on the current occupant’s deep domestic chaos, a decision that will be assessed through that frame and none other.
We’ve been through this show before folks. Inevitably the conservatives cry foul whenever we speak out against such action, acting as though we are unpatriotic. Bull! We are fully patriotic.
We want the senseless killing of people across this globe to cease, but we also want the truth about what took place during the 2016 presidential election. Those two desires are NOT mutually exclusive, as I suspect conservatives will begin portraying in the days ahead.
So, to those conservatives: May I tell you that you are either with the US or against the US? Please know: I do not mean to divide us as a nation, but am merely preparing the liberal-leaning people in this country for the inevitable attacks which will be lobbed our way should we remotely critique Mr. Trump’s action taken tonight. We are Americans FIRST and FOREMOST!
Lobbing missiles at another nation does not a patriot make. Ignoring the mountain of evidence which continues to build against Mr. Trump all under the moniker of being “moral and patriotic,” does not a “good American” make.
Liberals in this land listened to the incessant and fallacious allegations lobbed at the former President during his eight-year term, with next to little to no merit to those allegations, all due to what? His having a unique name? The color of his skin? His vision that our nation is unique because of the diversity we as Americans present? All because he believed in equality for each and every citizen across the land? All because he reminded each of us, uncomfortably I might add, that when our military responds to crises, they do so not as Democrats or Republicans; but Americans?
You will either seek the full truth allowing the Special Counsel to do his job, and refrain from portraying those of us who want the truth as unpatriotic, or you are against us. PERIOD!
