i"m sure Trump gave Vlad a heads-up, the Syrian airforce is parked in-between the Russian aircraft;

this was about saving face after the warning, to avoid looking like Obama .

I suspect the only one who really knows what they're doing is Putin. May, Macron and Trump are woefully inexperienced on the global stage.

They're on the verge. They had the white flag ready to run up the flagpole last night.

I'm genuinely disturbed by General Mattis so vehemently claiming we don't have evidence two days ago, and then standing at the podium saying we do have evidence as of last night. It doesn't add up. The U.N. inspectors were in Damascus, set to do their jobs today.

I'm starting to wonder if the "propaganda" out of Russia claiming we want to destroy the evidence isn't the truth.

If you think last night we were on the verge of WWIII, please run full speed, head-first into a wall.  

 

Trump's tweet warned Russia two days prior.  The deconfliction hotline was used to deconflict the airspace before they started the operation.  Business as usual.

I'm watching Fox News right now, and the Russian ambassador unfortunately made a hell if a lot more sense than Haley, and this French ambassador speaking now.

Russia: Give us evidence. Allow U.N. inspectors to provide evidence.

Us: Assad was warned not to use chemical weapons.

Russia: ????

France: It had to be Assad, because the "opposition" doesn't have helicopters.

Russia: ...for real??

I don't understand why Russia used its position on the UN Security Council to veto a resolution that would have had an independent investigation go in.

Simple. They don't trust us to be truthful about where said chemical weapons came from. That was not in this particular instance though.

They were encouraging U.N. inspectors to go in. The Guardian posted an article about that yesterday at 1pm. Within 12 hours, we struck.

The attack happened April 7th, and we decide we can't wait another 12 hours for them to go in? Something fishy happening here.

To be clear, Russia doesn't even believe an actual chemical weapons attack even happened. That's their stance.

If you look up some of the horrific videos of what Saddam did to his people, and then compare to this clip of this recent Sarin/Chlorine/whatever we want to call it today attack, there's something off about this recent video.

Lastly, when Russia went in to Douma to gather evidence, they found videos of children practicing, yes practicing, what they look like in a chemical weapons attack. The only reason I'm sure that's what it is, and its NOT a drill is because after a second, the doctors begin rolling around on the ground beside them. If it's a drill, it's to ready the doctors, and they wouldn't be rolling around on the ground too.

Moments ago Nikki Haley presented the evidence to the UN council which was basically

 

"someone spotted a helicopter over Douma and we don't have helicopters over Douma" and "some people said they saw what looked like a barrel bomb".

 

Thats it?

Strategically it makes zero sense for Syria to use chemical weapons days after Trump said he was considering pulling out all of the troops.  Something is beyond sketchy about it.  

 

I have serious doubts it was the Syrian government.  I feel like it's much more likely to have been one of the rebel groups or terrorists or whoever. 

 

I feel like its all bullchit. 

 

US:  "Yo, what the **** happened?"

 

Russia:  "Beats me, we thought you knew."

 

US:  "We're going to have to slap Assad on the wrist"

 

Russia: "Okay whatever, but we're going to act all indignant about it and say we're going to strike back."

 

US: "Sounds like a plan, we'll let you know when they're coming.  Move any important **** elsewhere."

 

Russia:  "k"

Pretty much what I figure too.

Trump can say he's against Russians actions and no conspiracy. But he warns the Russians what's coming, like the airport last year.

Putin gets to flex his muscles in defiance and show his people why they electes him for his 40th term.

All smoke and mirrors on this one and the citizens of both countries are used as pawns while Syrians are used as target practice by everyone.

The air strike was against Assad, not Putin.

 

If Trump, May, and the french fella had not given Russia notice to pull out their ships, Putin would have had no choice except to retaliate in kind and we'd now be witnessing the first days of WW3.

 

 

 

All that being said it was really a pointless exercise, much like the first airstrike back in 2017. I've got no idea what was the objective here but whatever it was it failed.

 

If they knew all along where Assad was allegedly manufacturing chemical weapons i've got to ask myself why they waited so long to take them out.

 

The whole $hit show stinks.

So if I don't pay my income taxes and I resist arrest and they kill me for it....technically, yes, I was killed for resisting arrest, however, the reason for their initial assault was b/c I didn't pay the govt "their" money....so would you support the meme if it was adjusted to reflect "assault" instead of "kill"?

So change it to.

"I didnt follow the law, then started acting stupid with the police, then resisted arrest and I accidentally got killed in the altercation."

Then add a small bit at the bottom that says.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.


Then your meme would be correct.
