President Trump launches airstrikes in Syria
WASHINGTON – President Trump unleashed airstrikes on Syria on Thursday to punish its strongman, Bashar Assad, after a chemical attack this week that killed dozens of civilians, including children. The barrage amounted to the most significant military operation ordered by Trump, a newcomer to governing who had warned, before taking office, against escalating America’s involvement in the Middle East.

“Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched,” Trump said in Palm Beach, Florida. “It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.”

The operation — the first known direct American strike on Syrian government assets since the start of the country’s civil war — rained at least 50 cruise missiles from U.S. Navy ships in the Mediterranean on a Syrian airfield thought to be the point of origin for the chemical attack, U.S. officials said. The attack took place at 8:40 p.m. Eastern time.

....and to think even yesterday I fondly hoped Trump
might be able to revive his last few brain cells.....

Trump is turning out to be the fraud I suspected he was.Trump is the Swamp.

It's not Trump that is the fraud. It's knowing the deep state will do what it wants regardless of who is in the White House. Trump simply got told to launch the airstrikes.

Trump did not start this, the military top brass and the intelligence communities told Trump to launch the missiles.

I am very surprised by the fact that some here consider themselves 'awake' but fail to recognize what is really taking place here.

Agreed ghost hacked

100 days in office and he's completely fallen for the bait and started a war...

America has an unstable, impulsive, slightly Mad Tycoon for a "Leader" not a real Pres, just like those that chose him wanted.

Its all on now boys and girls, better hide under your desks.

Russia will be forced to respond now, but I think it will be measured and show up Washington for the fools that they are.

They already have.  60 Tomahawks (1980's technology) launched, only 23 hit the airbase.  Russia either blocked their targeting systems or shot them down.  Reports suggest only the S-200 anti-missile systems were used.  The S-300 and S-400 systems remain unused up to this point.  Here's a reminder of the 2013 false flag chemical weapon attack that was supposed to have seen the US give Assad the 'Ghadaffi' treatment.

Yeah I know "John", have a gander at the article I posted this morning on here, this french(?) guy has a great theory, I thought.

Did you know that each one of those outdated missiles has about a kg of Silver in it?!

Better rush out and buy some before its all gone! The price is going up like a Rocket!

Man, we're gonna be Rich!

I'm gonna build a coffin of solid Silver so I'll be the richest stiff in the graveyard.

All the bugs will stay away so I won't go off and they can revive me with iCorpse Technology in 500 years time when all the Bullshit has stopped and you can finally hear yourself think!

Aint this War shit fun? Makes you feel young again..just like the bad old days

And the yanks are sending one of their oldest aircraft carriers to the Korean Peninsular, maybe expendable colleteral damage to ensure a frenzy of nationalist sentiment like on 7th December 1941 or September 11!

It's an easy trap for a president to fall into. Damned if he reacts and damned if he doesn't.

NWO tactic. If he doesn't strike he looks weak, if he does, he's become "one of them".

And even his mate Putin is forced to respond with condemnation.

The same old puppet show.

Watch how Putin follows up.

And keep an eye on China with the other eye!

Martin I really cannot see that as an "easy trap".I see it for what it really is;a false flag to sell another unprovoked neocon intervention.Think about it.This is a rerun of the 2013 false flag only now the ziobanksters have installed a macho Marlboro man with the Chutzpah to carry it through.Trump is exactly the fraud I thought he would be.

We are all meant to see Trump as a bit mad ...a bit unhinged sort of the same way we patronised Bush Junior as being stupid.  This is the game they play us for.  Its utter theatre for them they know to keep baiting us with ridiculous opposing sides like cowboys and indians to distract.  The same people have been ruling over Europe and the US for the last 70 yrs and the election system is an old fashioned ....sort of gimmick that was circumvented years ago. It is absolutely rigged in the US.   Every candidate in the US on both sides of the house has had the Banking /oil/pharma cartel. backing them.  Im meaning just about everyone of them lined up in the primaries, exceptions: Republican Ron Paul and Democrat Dennis Kucinich.
