Subject: BS: Hit On Syria

It's 1700 hours in Anchorage and 0400 in Syria. President Trump has just made a brief announcement that the U.S., U.K., and France are acting in an concerted effort against the Assad regime.

I checked the New York Times and didn't find an article on the subject yet. The NBC News feed to the U.S. West Coast reported that explosions have been heard in Assad government territory.

I regard this as a new Syria thread. Comments and information regarding these events and the predicament of the Syrian people, plus, well, I'm sure we'll collect the usual suspects but maybe some fresh approaches.

Obama didn't cross that red line, because Congress didn't allow it. Trump always said Yes if Obama said No, so what we have here, apparently, is Trump trying to once again dismiss an Obama decision. Not that people didn't like that Congress didn't allow a military response, and Obama was blamed. Trump the Showman is playing at being president.

Statement from Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:

"Canada condemns in the strongest possible terms the use of chemical weapons in last week’s attack in eastern Ghouta, Syria.

Canada supports the decision by the United States, the United Kingdom, and France to take action to degrade the Assad regime’s ability to launch chemical weapons attacks against its own people.

We will continue to work with our international partners to further investigate the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Those responsible must be brought to justice."

"Chemical weapons are wrong but it should be the UN who take action,"
It most certainly should be
The cynicism of all this is that Countries like the U.S. and Russia have regularly used their U.N. vetoes to prevent action.
Might help of course, if these countries stopped selling the wherewithal to produce these weapons, but that would nause up our economies, wouldn't it?
It's a sobering thought that if world peace were declared tomorrow, the US, France, Britain, Germany, India and Saudi Arabia would be plunged into economic cris1s

European Council President Donald Tusk said Saturday the European Union stood by the United States, France and Britain over their air strikes against the regime in Syria for alleged chemical attacks.

"Strikes by US, France and UK make it clear that Syrian regime together with Russia and Iran cannot continue this human tragedy, at least not without cost. The EU will stand with our allies on the side of justice," Tusk said in a Twitter message.

Naaaah!!!!!!
I just think id you want to declare war on someone you need to be able to show your evidence to the world before taking action. So far all we have is a fog of lies and obsfuscation.

If you want to claim to be world policemen you also need to be able to demonstrate a degree of integrity.
We have the UN for policing actions. Perhaps we should use it.

Left, right, centre or uncommitted, I think many of us realise that this is unlikely to 'give Assad a biffing' in any way that affects his personal well being (short of eencouraging a coup of some kind). If, on the other hand the aim is to make him think carefully before using chemical weapons in future, that is a much more modest aim, and maybe even achievable with this single strike.

Laugh at astrology all you please, however:

Michael Lutin, an astrologer with his own webpage,
compared the Trump/Syria strike timing/chart
with the Bush/Iraq strike timing/chart.

In general both charts suggest that things don't go according to plan;
and no, the charts are not identical, far from it;
but one SNAFU aspect in particular
is mirrored between the two charts.
Lutin's comment:

"it's going to be a mess like u can't believe"

BBC today said that all the Sunday papers, including the Observer, supported the strikes.
This illustrates yet again how out of touch and unrepresentative of British views the dominant British group here is.

The only demonstration against the strikes was by the extreme and Marxist SWP.

Both Question Time and Any Questions this week discussed Labour Party anti-Semitism and the dominant view from panel and audience was the view I have tried to express here.

This Mudcat group is able to dominate because their response to mainstream views is so nasty that ordinary decent people would rather stay away.

You read what you wish to read in everything and make everything left unsaid up

Just thought I'd say that before I finish
You are the first to scream and shout "thread drift" so why introduce Israel to a thread about a current news item
Pretty convincing proof that you use this forum as a personal soapbox - on behalf of extremism, against moderation and, as now shown, as a personal vendetta against those who disagree with your horrendously undemocratic and inhuman views
