Poll: Do you support Donald Trump’s Bombing Syria?
SCROLL DOWN FOR VOTE
On Thursday, President Donald Trump ordered a missile strike against military targets in Syria in response to a chemical attack on civilians. Some, however, say the sarin gas attack was a false flag.
“It doesn’t make any sense for Assad under these conditions to all of a sudden use poison gases – I think there’s zero chance he would have done this deliberately,” said former Texas congressman Ron Paul.
“It’s the neo-conservatives who are benefiting tremendously from this because it’s derailed the progress that has already been made moving toward a more peaceful settlement in Syria,” he added.
Dilbert creator Scott Adams also called the attack a false flag:
I’m going to call bullsh*t on the gas attack. It’s too “on-the-nose,” as Hollywood script-writers sometimes say, meaning a little too perfect to be natural. This has the look of a manufactured event.
My guess is that President Trump knows this smells fishy, but he has to talk tough anyway. However, keep in mind that he has made a brand out of not discussing military options. He likes to keep people guessing. He reminded us of that again yesterday, in case we forgot.
Reaction was somewhat mixed:
Trump will face more political fallout than diplomatic over Syria strike. Expended a lot of political capital here
