Could it be that President Donald Trump was ushered into to a darkened boardroom immediately after his election victory to met with chain-smoking faceless bureaucrats and given a reality check about how his next four years in office was actually going to be? If not then perhaps a complete lobotomy, courtesy of the American tax payer.
For what we have witnessed is nothing short of a complete about turn with President Trump reneging on his promise to befriend Russia and avoid military conflict, re-focusing well-needed funds to issues at home. Yet just months into his presidency he authorises a missile attack on a Syrian airbase in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack which killed over 70 people, including children. Images of victims foaming at the mouth in Khan Sheikhun, Syria was an incident that shocked the world, causing international outrage and placing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as public enemy number one once again, to the anger of the Russian government and its allies.
Trump stated that the suffering of young children had prompted him to take this action. But when was the sight of children dying ever of prime concern for the US government? This is historical fact: Hiroshima and Nagasaki for instance. Vietnam anyone? The sight of children running in the streets with severe burns, their skin falling off after Napalm was persistently being dropped from aircraft causing maximum devastation. Certainly the faint whiff of hypocrisy is in the air.
Assad maintains that this was a ‘fabrication’ and that his planes had bombed a rebel stronghold hitting their stockpile of chemical weapons, realising the deadly Sarin gas, and that the US government has used this as a ‘pretext’ to launch their missile attack.
To the logical mind, Assad had already gained the upper hand and had no discernible reason to use chemical weapons at this point. Moreover, he denies having any chemical weapons at all, destroyed in 2013 as part of a number of international agreements with Syria. The alleged Syrian chemical weapons attack that same year had many doubters as well, not least the German press who cited intelligence they had received from high-level national security sources, absolving Assad of any blame. Whichever way you view it, the jury is out on Assad’s involvement, yet it is accepted as fact by Western media outlets such as the BBC, CNN and the usual suspects of the globalist propaganda machine.
To complicate matters further, North Korea has now entered the fray in recent weeks, and dangerously so, with several (failed) nuclear tests, they are defiant of the United States and are instead attempting a show of strength that they will not bow down to any pressure from Western governments.
U.S. President Donald Trump has been quoted since taking office of saying how he misses his old life and that the job of president was much harder than even he had anticipated, well it now looks set to get a lot worse and few could argue it’s not of his own making.
