DONALD TRUMP’S MISSILE STRIKES “VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL LAW …”
U.S. president Donald Trump has completed his 180-degree shift on American policy in Syria.
Just days after Trump’s non-interventionist “we should stay the hell out of Syria” view was adopted as the official policy of the United States government, a chemical weapons attack of disputed origin has America flip-flopping and once again pushing for “regime change.”
Oh, and we’re now dropping bombs (or firing missiles to be precise).
All of this has happened without an authorization of force resolution from the U.S. Congress … and despite a history of false flag chemical attacks in the area.
The big worry in all this? How Russia would respond.
Well wonder no more …
Russian president Vladimir Putin “regards the (U.S.) strikes as aggression against a sovereign nation,” according to his spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
Peskov said the attacks occurred “in violation of international law, and also under an invented pretext.”
“This step deals significant damage to US-Russian ties, which are already in a deplorable state,” Peskov added, noting that the American military action “doesn’t draw us nearer to the end goal in the fight with international terrorism and on the contrary, deals a serious setback to the creation of an international coalition in the fight with it.”
As it did in Ukraine, America is purposely provoking Russia by meddling in an area of the world that clearly falls within its sphere of influence.
Does anyone expect this to “Make America Safe Again?”
And with our nation $20 trillion in debt (a big chunk of that due to multiple Middle Eastern military misadventures), does anyone really believe our country can continue to subsidize such military actions?
