Commander in Chief Trump – boos op Assad – laat massaal bombardement op Syrie uitvoeren

Trump was tegen meevechten in Syrie, en hij wilde goede vrienden zijn en blijven met Putin, maar sinds vannacht is het allemaal anders. Op bevel van Trump zijn 59 kruisraketten afgeschoten op het Syrische vliegveld al-Shayrat, dichtbij de stad Homs. Het buitenlands beleid van Trump - voor zover duidelijk was hoe dat in elkaar zat - staat hiermeeop zijn kop. De kruisraketten zijn een vergelding voor de aanval met gloorgas door Assad. "Geen kind van God mag zulke gruwelijkheden ondergaan", zei Trump tegen het Amerikaanse volk. "Crede en harmonie zullen zegenvieren". De toespraak van Trump: "On Tuesday Syrian President Bashar al Assad launched a horrible chemical attack on innocent civilians using a deadly nerve agent. Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered at this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror. "Tonight I 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 Untied 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 UN Security Council. "Numerous previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all found and failed very dramatically. As a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies. "Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syrian and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types. We asked for God’s wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world. We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who passed. And we hope as long as America stands for justice and peace and harmony will in the end prevail. "Good night and God Bless America and the entire world."
