I was going to post the images I am linking later on with this post as a caption, but they are way too graphic. I am not cool with just posting the images of little dead children to highlight a blog post. If you are cool with looking at them you can look here.
Anyway, that was the horrific bombing at Ghouta , when al-Assad proved to the world that he was a depraved maniac to be mentioned in the same breath with some of history's most evil dictators. He slaughtered hundreds of his own people in a inhuman and sadistic way, and some folks in America were losing their minds because president Obama did not bomb the Syrian leader into another dimension.
Obama's red line problem was born around the same time. Although, let's not forget, republicans in congress would not authorize the bombings and missile strikes that he wanted to carry out.)
Still, do you know who wasn't losing his mind about bombing Syria? Donald trump. The man who is now our president---- even after that horrific event at Ghouta, implored then president Obama to stay out of Syria. In fact, a series of tweets are now coming back to haunt him after his road to Damascus moment, when he decided to launch almost sixty missiles to take out a few (out of commission) planes.
"Obama must now start focusing on OUR COUNTRY, jobs, healthcare and all of our many problems. Forget Syria and make America great again!"
"Don't attack Syria - an attack that will bring nothing but trouble for the U.S. Focus on making our country strong and great again!"
Donald, there were "beautiful little babies" dying back in 2013 as well.
But I get it, these babies are dying when your poll numbers are in the mid-thirties, and you need distraction from your Russia problem.
You have been in show business long enough to know that nothing gets the American people's attention like a few bright shiny missiles going off into the night.
"...Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians. Using a deadly nerve agent, Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror."
No they shouldn't. And the deaths of those children "of God" should never be used to score political points.
