Well, I guess it’s good to know that Trump finally recognizes the seriousness of the Syrian situation. And I hope he makes a connection between the horrible Sarin gas attacks and his terrible refugee policy making it harder for Syrians to flee.
But what is happening now? Is this saber-rattling for real, or is it posturing? An “America First” Donald Trump would not go to war with Syria, but as I have written about recently, Trump it seems is becoming more globalist and less isolationist.
I don’t know the answer regarding Syria. Neither did Obama. Neither did the Congress under Obama when they would not grant his request for war. Which, by the way, I hope Trump will do.
Er, let me put that another way.
Trump MUST get approval from Congress. Doing otherwise would violate the Constitution.
Or maybe he’ll just do a surgical strike or two.
Hmmmm. Seems there is a downside to Trump being a globalist too. He’ll be a neo-con. Great.
