"And on a bent knee, he sent the establishment neocons in Washington a message that he understands who is truly in charge and he will pledge his fealty and submission."

That's a stupid observation. Nothing about Trump or this decision puts him now as ally or adherent with Neocons. Trump did what American's needed to do, what a president with respect of America needed to do, say No to the atrocity and apply some action behind the words. This doesn't mean war with Syria, war with Russia, etc. No, what this likely sets stage for is Trump and Putin getting together to work out safe havens for Syrian refugees, which is needed and which he promised to do.

A

I leaned B at first, then read more about the situation, and became convinced that A was the right choice.

Obama and Hillary got us into some really bad messes in the Middle East, and Trump is fixing the mess.

We make things worse by ignoring our treaties and obligations.

I agree with you. Look, we can’t be the world’s policeman, BUT, Trump had to establish his street cred.

Hell NO. The Islamist rebels have been proven time and again to have used chemical weapons, and to have set up stupid western media for propaganda purposes. The CFR played Trump for an idiot fool to further their agenda. He’s just another Obama now. Should’ve just voted for Hillary. WTH. Trump is an Idiot. Probably DOES have small hands. Which he twitters with... I’m ashamed I supported him. I feel so stupid. He got to DC and “Made a Deal”...it’s what he does, after all....

Lukewarm A. I’m a little skeptical that Assad did this, but if he did, this seems an appropriate response.

As long as it doesnt escalate. I look at it like what Reagan did to Qaddafi. The long term concern is Russian enabling of Assad.

“Way to go dick weeds.”

Well, I don’t support the bombing but I do support the way President Trump did it:

Excused himself from the dinner table with the President of China, went and ordered the bombing, returned and continued pleasantries.

Lol, beautiful!

As with most everything Trump has said or done since becoming President, some in here have jumped straight to conclusion without waiting...Just about every time, he has been shown to be correct....

I do not support the action, but I am also not worried about it either. Lot’s of drama for no reason.

A. President Trump was right to attack Syria for the gas attacks.

B. I wish Trump did not attack Syria.

C. I don't have access to sufficient information to conclude whether the President's actions were "right" or not.

I can only trust that the President—in possession of the most complete information possible—made a proper judgement based on his convictions regarding the intelligence which was offered as proof of Assad's actions.

I therefore defer to the President's judgement in light of the fact that I don't have access to information which convinces me otherwise.

If option C is not available, I choose option A...

A

It never would have happened if the Obama administration hadn't lied to the country and removed the chemical weapons as he said he did........

A

THIS TIME something had to be done.
Few, if any, good reasons not to.
Next time, maybe not.

B - Should have had all the facts first. I’m not convinced Assad’s regime did this yet.

Tillerson said this was the third gas attack, not the first.

If there are no more such attacks, I think you have to give this an A.

According to Tillerson the purpose of the strike was to let everyone including Assad, Iran and Russians know that we would not allow WMD attacks to be normalized. This was a strike against the idea of States using chemical weapons. Syria just happened to be the one to make zee boo-boo.

So, I’m waiting for results and hoping they are good.
