Skip to comments.When Reality Meets Ideology: How the Left is Responding to Syria
Posted on 04/10/2017 5:52:51 AM PDT by davikkm
When President Trump authorized the bombing of Syrian airfields in response to what his office said was an Al-Assad chemical weapons attack, not only was this in line with what many Syrian refugees want, it is also what Barack Obama famously called for with his Red Line in 2012. It is also in direct opposition t the Kremlin, who claim that the attacks were carried out by Syrian rebel groups.
But, but, but, Its Trump!!! They cry. And how could any self-respecting person agree with the actions of him? At the point when the most mouth-frothing occurs, I like to apply the partisan test. If the exact same actions had been taken by someone on the opposite side f the House, what would the reaction be? Would they hail it as a strike for freedom (as they did when they bombed Libya)? Would it be classed as a just action?

The left wants President Trump to take out Assad so the Muslim brotherhood can come in and take over in the power vacuum.
The Left suddenly dropping their incessant war and praising CINC is sending up more flags than anything else. They’re like Ferengi, especially those Cohn and Powell characters who just landed in the WH. They were the only ones looking appreciative and interested in the MAL situroom photo Spicer posted, instead of concerned like everybody else.
Both the Left and the establishment/neoconservative GOP “right” had nothing but hatred and venom for President Trump and his initiatives until the Syria bombing. Suddenly, these people (Democrats like Schumer and Pelosi, Republicans like McCain and Graham) are on Trump’s side when he launches some missiles in Syria. Shouldn’t the fact that most of the people who got President Trump elected oppose this intervention while his most vocal opponents support him give him some second thoughts about taking this any further?
It’s quite obviously a TARP for anybody with eyes to see.
