Trump Launches Strikes On Syria Over Unproven Chemical Attack

The OPCW's inspectors have only just hit ground in Syria, but President Trump has already launched an attack on Syria and blamed Russia and Iran for last week's unproven, alleged chemical attack in Douma.

This on Friday the 13th, no less.

From CNN:
President Donald Trump announced on Friday he ordered strikes on the Syrian regime in response to a chemical weapons attack last weekend.

"I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator of Bashar al-Assad," Trump said from the White House Diplomatic Reception Room.

Witnesses told CNN that they heard explosions in the capital city of Damascus and that they began while Trump was making his address.

US aircraft including B-1 bombers and ships were used in the attack, according to multiple US defense officials.
Trump said that he decided to take action because last weekend's action by Bashar Al-Assad "was a significant attack against his own people," and "not the actions of a man, they are crimes of a monster instead."

Trump said the strikes were in coordination with France and the United Kingdom, adding that the purpose of the campaign is to "establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons."

"The combined American, British and French response to these atrocities will integrate all instruments of our national power: military, economic and diplomatic," Trump said.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said in a statement that she "authorized British armed forces to conduct co-ordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use."
It appears Trump has finally decided to throw his presidency away as the deep state tightens its grip by seizing his private communications with his lawyer Michael Cohen, who has apparently been under a criminal investigation for months.

We can assume Trump's either been compromised by the deep state or thinks this will serve as a distraction from the ongoing scandals.

Either way, it's a total reversal from everything he ran on and another war based on lies.

If he didn't warn the Russians to get them out of harm's way, this is risking nuclear war.

He's reportedly bombed Syria's capital, Damascus.
