uncontested news today is that ~80 people in Syria
have died of
chemical poisoning as a result of bombs being
dropped by Assad.
About 20 of the victims were children, and many of
the civilians were
found in their beds in houses surrounding the bomb
The Liberal media immediately castigated Assad for
warfare against civilians.
The alternate explanation offered by Russia and
Syria and various right
wing media (e.g. http://thelibertarianrepublic.com)
is that the target
of Assad's conventional explosive bombs was a
warehouse where chemical
weapons were manufactured and stored. The
bombing caused the
activation & release of the chemical weapons.
- Trump has bombed the Syrian airfield from
which the bombers flew.
- Reportedly the Russians were warned in advance
& there were
no Russian casualties. Six Syrian military
casualties are claimed.
- The Russian response is furious.
Iranians and Syrians
response so far is muted.
I assume that Trump had advice that the Syrians used
gas. We were
not advised whether there was any advice that Assad
might have used
conventional HE bombs (as suggested by the Russians)
on a gas warehouse
and thus released ISIS gas. Trump chose to
believe the advisers
who thought Assad had used gas and reacted
Since this response by Trump I assume that all talk
investigations of a Putin conspiracy with Trump
supporters and the
possibility of impeachment is now dead.
Putin Is a smart man. He has picked up on
without missing a step.
The Liberal media has suggested that Putin organized
the gas bombing to
give Trump an opportunity to righteously bomb the
reckon they have it wrong. Putin did not plan
found an opportunity caused by unfortunate
circumstances, and after
listening to the Democrat's response he calculated
his own response.
Trump caused very few Syrian deaths. I suspect
that the Russians
would have warned the Syrians on base, but the
slowest got caught.
I blame it all on Obama & Hillary. If they
had not caused the
vicious Democrat response to Trump's election,
including the Senate
enquiry, there would have been no need for Trump to
Russian credentials by an attack on the Syrian
Because let's face it. Nobody denies it was a
manufacturing warehouse of ISIS. It is
predictable if a poison
gas weapons manufacturing facility is bombed that
poisonous gas might
be released. Trump chose to believe the
adviser who suggested
that the Syrian's used gas.
OK so the Trump apologists are saying the gas was
Sarin or Sarin lookalike. They presuppose that
(a) Sarin is higher technology than Isis could
achieve, buy or steal, (b) That it was Sarin
I am not outright sold on either
Xi is about to travel to the USA & meet Trump.
Trump appears determined to stop DPRK (Democratic
People's Republic of
Korea) from obtaining a nuclear threat to the USA.
Xi does not want THAAD in South Korea.
My prediction? Both will get what they
want. And trade
sanctions will be "reasonable", (meaning not ruinous
to China, but more
jobs in the USA.)
(The China Sea/Taiwan question is already settled.)
Not war (Yet).
The US probably has THAAD or Aegis or similar
waiting on another missile firing. Of course
it could only be a test, but maybe an attack?
If DPRNK decides to bombard Seoul in the meantime,
the USA has demonstrated a 10 tonne MOAB that would,
no doubt, if carpet bombed on the artillery pointed
at Saigon, eliminate that threat.
But my money is on a microdrone.
