Most of us were in shock when we learned that President Trump had ordered an attack on a Syrian military installation as retaliation for Bashar al-Assad’s chemical attack against his own people. This ferocious reaction shook the nation as we had not seen any retort taken against al-Assad’s taunting from the previous administration.
All Americans, radical terrorists, rouge nations and the rest of the world became used to the fact that, under President Obama’s reigning, the United States will do nothing more than deliver a condemning speech when these kinds of atrocities took place. A perfect example of such cowardly and sedentary attitude by ex-president Obama was the vile chemical attach of August 2013. “A team of UN chemical weapons inspectors have confirmed that the nerve agent sarin was used in an attack on the Ghouta agricultural belt around Damascus on the morning of 21 August.” This defying attack came 7 months after Obama drew a line in the sand by saying that the US will attack Libya’s regime if they ever used chemical weapons. I thing they called your bluff Mr. Obama!
Of course al-Assad, like most current terrorist organization, was under the impression that the US had become complacent and was reluctant to any involvement in international matters. WRONG! President Trump took a bold and decisive action against a clear human rights violation.
According to the Whitehouse’s official page, President Trump “ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention, and ignored the urging of the U.N. Security Council”
OK, GOOD JOB MR. TRUMP… NOW WHAT?!?!
Many critics and supporters alike are scratching their heads to what’s next on the Syria-US agenda. You want to know what’s going to happen next? The US is on defensive mode and therefore nothing else will occur unless a provocation is presented. Many people are screaming WWIII after Trump’s bombing, especially because Russia is backing Assad, but the reality is that, Russia’s assets are tied in the upcoming Zapad 2017 exercise and Putin simply can’t afford attacking the US at the moment.
It is now clear that the US, under President Trump’s administration, will not standby and only verbally condemn the atrocities conducted by these barbarians. The US has sent a clear and prominent message to the world; we will act on behalf of those who are victimized, we will strike for those who can’t strike back and we are no longer neutral bystanders of inhumane and evil actions.
For those who seek more action by the US it is hard to say if Trump will go beyond reactive attacks. I understand this may come as bad news to those who are on the ground in Syria but until NATO unites and calls for a uniformed offensive, any major scale attack is out of the picture.
May God bless and protect the innocent!
Time to say adios!
