He was right.
He was wrong.
While it is wrong to randomly go in and bomb other countries. CONTEXT MATTERS!!! While some innocents were caught in the explosions, it is important to note that every military conflict will always have a chance of civilian causalities. Syria did have illegal chemical weapons and were actively using them. We had already tried under the Obama administration to remove such weapons through "peace talks" in which it failed. We had already tried a diplomatic strategy and simply didn't work. When the USA entered the Middle East, we made promises to people. These same people are now being gunned down on the streets and gassed to death. The US has an obligation to fulfill our promises. This act also sends a message to other hostile countries about USA's willingness to act once again. If, North Korea knows that the USA might actually use military force, they might think twice before shooting off another missile into Japanese and South Korean territory. This act didn't really inflame any country in the Middle East. The Arab world has already set their minds on destroying the West. If we had used another diplomatic peace talk rather than taking action, there might be a chance that we might embolden such anti-American sentiments. A display of power does more than a display of weakness.
The leader of Syria is killing its own citizens and all Trump did was target the Jihadists.
Striking Bashar Al-Assad's forces for his chemical attacks on innocent people was the right call to make. These weapons have been outlawed by the global community and Al-Assad must cooperate with the international rules and norms of armed conflict; if he doesn't and if he persist in using these horrific weapons, he needs to be removed from power by all means necessary.
We need a president who will actually stick to the threats he makes. Obama had threatened Syria years ago that if they used chemical weapons (on their own people) then he would take action, yet when confronted on the subject Obama simply says he's going to "negotiate", yet nothing ever happened. To sum it up, we need a president that has balls, to prove to the world we're not "candy asses" and are not to be taken lightly or as a joke, that we are a world super power that needs to be reckoned with.
Assad is a war criminal. He gassed babies .
he did the right thing, using chemicals in war is against the Geneva Convention.
Those terrorist f**kers need to all die.
I think Donald Trump was wrong in striking Syria, first because it's just wrong, period., to go into other countries and bomb them, and either cripple or kill innocent people. Secondly, it was extremely arrogant of Donald Trump to just think that he could go in there with impunity and strike at Syria because it will only inflame the Arab world. Thirdly, many people will begin to hate the United States, and the West, generally, even more.
because he was not approved by congress or any one else
