Only days after Trump announced he would withdraw U.S. military involvement in Syria there has been another gas attack by the Assad regime. The Syrian government obviously feels they have a free hand. That means perpetrating genocide:
Dozens of Syrians in Douma have died by suffocation, following reports of a chemical attack. Douma is currently the last rebel-held enclave in the eastern part of the country near the capital Damascus. The alleged attack comes amidst days of heavy bombardment by government forces in an effort to assert control over the town.
Senator John McCain stated what many our military had been warning. Withdrawing from Syria prematurely would embolden Assad:
Republican Sen. John McCain said Sunday that President Donald Trump's comments that the US military would leave Syria "very soon" had emboldened Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, resulting in the reported chemical weapons attack Saturday that killed dozens of the country's civilians.
But Trump isn't motivated by strategic thinking. He's pulling out from Syria because that's what Putin wants. There is no other explanation. For at least 2 years now Donald Trump has bent over backwards to appease the Russian dictator. We recently invited Putin to the White House only days after the Kremlin was blamed for poisoning Russian nationals on British soil, a major internationally scandal.
After the Syrian gas attack Trump has been forced to modify his plans to leave Syria. We've seen this many times before. Trump will back down when universally condemned. Failure to change his Syria policy would make it too obvious that he is doing the bidding of Comrade Putin. He is failing. The evidence is overwhelming: Donald Trump is a Kremlin asset:
No wonder Trump’s lawyers oppose allowing Mueller to interview their habitually mendacious client. Every question could expose whether Trump is Putin’s dupe ― or something infinitely worse. What does Trump know about meetings between Russians and members of his campaign ― including Flynn, Manafort, Kushner and Trump Jr. ― and when was he told about them? Did anyone inform him that Russia was offering to help him become president? Did Trump know Russia had Clinton’s emails before WikiLeaks released them? Was Manafort an intermediary between Trump and highly placed Russians? Why did Trump not fire Flynn after learning that he had lied to the FBI? Why did he fire Comey, and with whom did he discuss this? Why did he craft Trump Jr.’s false cover story? And so on, until Mueller reaches the biggest “why” of all.
