President Trump held an April 5th Rose Garden press briefing with Jordan’s King Abdullah II, focusing on the recent chemical weapons attack in Syria. He spoke to the depravity of such a strike which claimed innocent children as its victims.
President Trump pointed to yet another mess he’s been left to clean up by his feckless predecessor, saying, “Well, I think the Obama administration had a great opportunity to solve this crisis a long time ago when he said the red line in the sand.”
Trump continued, “And when he didn’t cross that line after making the threat, I think that set us back a long ways. Not only in Syria but in many other parts of the world, because it was a blank threat. I think it was something that was not one of our better days as a country, so I do feel that, Julie, I feel it very strongly.”
A determined President Trump answered her follow-up question, saying, “I now have responsibility and I will have that responsibility and carry it very proudly. It crossed a lot of lines for me. When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, babies, little babies with a chemical gas that is so lethal, people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many, many lines; beyond a red line, many, many lines.”
Trump warned, “And I will tell you that attack on children yesterday had a big impact on me, big impact. That was a horrible, horrible thing. And I’ve been watching it and seeing it and it doesn’t get any worse than that. And I have that flexibility and it’s very, very possible, and I will tell you it’s already happened, that my attitude towards Syria and Assad has changed very much.” King Abdullah also added his comments to those of President Trump.
There’s no denying the event in Syria was a despicable and horrific act, but President Trump needs to make very certain that he is not being played by his adversaries, ultimately doing the work of ISIS and their globalist sponsors to complete the job of regime change that Obama was thwarted in carrying out. Another hellhole like Libya benefits no one but the Islamists.
The type of atrocity that was carried out upon these people is no more horrific than the 240 killed in Mosul, a loss of life that the US had taken responsibility for and which now appears to have been the handiwork of ISIS.
ZeroHedge reported on March 27th, “Two days after the US military confirmed that a coalition airstrike may have killed as many as 240 civilians in a March 17 Mosul air raid, the Pentagon found an unexpected defender when the Iraqi military said on Sunday a blast that killed scores of civilians in western Mosul was triggered by an Islamic State booby trap, contradicting local officials and residents who claimed a U.S.-led coalition airstrike caused the deaths.”
The very same type of thing could easily be happening in Syria. The callous disregard for life is an ISIS trademark. It’s important that he not allow himself to be manipulated by those seeking to involve us in another “very profitable” exploit overseas that has world-changing consequences, particularly as the unwitting pawn of either ISIS or the establishment war-mongers.
