Syria: action, not words

While Hillary Clinton sat whinging (yet again) that misogyny undoubtedly “played a role” in her losing the election, we got further proof that she was never the right person to lead with strength.

On Thursday when asked by reporters aboard Air Force One whether President Bashar al-Assad should no longer rule Syria after the chemical weapons attack, Trump replied, “I think what happened in Syria is a disgrace to humanity. What Assad did is terrible. What happened in Syria is truly one of the egregious crimes and it shouldn’t have happened. And it shouldn’t be allowed to happen.”

Just hour’s later missiles were screaming towards Syria.

Not days, weeks, months, years… Hours.

They rained on a Syrian airfield, the source of Tuesday’s chemical weapons attack that rocked the world. On radar, the US had tracked the aircraft involved in the chemical strike back to the base, which was then bombed in the early hours of Friday morning. Government officials said at least 50 of the missiles were launched from U’S battleships.

Trump addressed the nation saying, “Tonight I call on all civilised nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria, and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.”


He may be no wordsmith – but he’s certainly a man of action.

To all those wailing lefties bitching and moaning, and to the naysayers sobbing they didn’t see what action he could possibly take.

This.

People would rather action than endless meetings.

People would rather action than whining about “misogyny” on the sidelines.

This is why they voted for Trump and sent Hills to the woods.

It is reported Trump was greatly disturbed by the images that emerged after Tuesday’s chemical attack. “I will tell you, it’s already happened that my attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much,” Trump said on Wednesday.

Without doubt, the atrocities in Syria will forever tarnish and stain Obama’s legacy. Last year, Reuters reported a senior fellow at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, Emile Hokayem said, “Obama has pursued a policy of calculated dithering in Syria, just agonising over the choices until they no longer existed.”

Make no mistake – Trump is no Obama.

The Guardian may like to take another look at their smug, arrogant, gloating headline from yesterday which stated, “Donald’s Trump’s response to Syria gas attack: blame Obama.”

You fools, you still don’t get it, do you? Blame is a game the left play – ask Hills, it’s her favourite.
