Red Line Crossed/Syria
Syrian state TV and witnesses said late Sunday that airstrikes had hit a military airport near the city of Homs shortly after a suspected chemical attack that killed at least 40 people in a suburb of the capital city, Damascus, over the weekend.

Thanks O-Baby! Douche....
The president also warned Russia and Iran that there would be a "big price to pay" for backing the Assad regime and slammed former President Barack Obama, who vowed in 2012 that such actions would cross a “red line,” but later failed to enforce the promise a year later when hundreds of Syrians were killed by sarin gas. Instead, Obama brokered a multi-nation deal in which Assad pledged to remove his chemical-weapons stockpile.
Obama had his mistakes in Syria but this belongs to trump. By announcing that troops will be leaving “early” they are stepping up their attacks. The question is what will he do now?
your fav IMposter. Take a hike, NO BALLS. The answer to your question is, I hope Trump continues to pi$$ your ANTI-AMERICAN A$$. off.
"By announcing that troops will be leaving “early” they are stepping up their attacks."
Funny how the Democraps used to support actions like this when their team was in charge. Now they whine....
Have you Trumpettes defended him announcing withdrawal? Have time lines even been published as when Obama was being Traitorous?
Wrong - obama announced withdrawal back in 2014.
All the problems we face today are a direct result of obama's stupidity.
Obama failing to act when Assad first used chemical weapons after crossing the "red line" will go down in history as one of the worst decisions ever made by the POTUS.
Would love to see some of our allies step up to the plate here
I'd like to see the same thing happen to Assad that happened to Khadafy. Maybe we should put some VX on them and see how they like it.
Paul Is His Name, BS Is His Game.....TONS Of It!!!

"Wrong - obama announced withdrawal back in 2014."
You mean Paulabe LIED??? NO WAY! He ALWAYS tells the truth!
Trump made an announcement of an early exit from syria last week. Or did you miss that? He’s the president now. Focus on that, if you’re capable.
Like you're capable of the truth and going by your word? You are one dishonest person. Or should I say perSONS......like 40+. Screwing the taxpayers again today are ya? Playing on the computer while you're supposed to be "working".....that is, if you ARE indeed a teacher, which I doubt because all we have to confirm that is your "word", which as we all know is pure 100% crap.
Trump in 2013 “To our foolish leader, DO NOT attack Syria! Mess we do not need!
Trump yesterday: “Of Obama had attacked, Syrian disaster would have ended a long time ago and Animal Assad would be history!”
Your president, ladies and gents.
Nice dodge Paul. Not really a teacher, huh? Or do they pay to to sit on the computer all day? Liar.
OBOZO the America hating race pimp gave birth to ISIS and the crisis in Syria. We are now sitting with the Iranians and Rushkies entrenched there thanks to that stinking dope.
At the same time, we must tread lightly here. We must be completely sure that the Rushkies/Iranians/Assad are indeed responsible, that it was NOT some other faction trying to start a bigger war here. After that, we have to ask this question. Does what just happened in Syria threaten our national security? There are tragedies being committed all over this globe from China to wherever you find the Islamic swine. If Syria backed by the Rushkies used gas that would be a job for the UN, right? Of course they are worthless, so a job for NATO? No way should this country have to again foot the bill in treasure and blood. Either the UN acts or we should leave them and force that leftist organization to dissolve.
As far as President Trump saying we are leaving, are you people still so dumb and blind to realize he says a lot of things? He is spooning for reaction, and then he acts. Don't worry so much about what he says, pay attention to what he does. So far into his administration he has been nearly immaculate in regards to doing what is right for this country. Thank you President Trump!
once again, PutZ proves the ignorance he is infused with... I do feel sorry for those kids at Briar Cliff, they are so screwed with buttwipes like him walking the hallways ...

Well really, HOW can they be influenced by him, that is if he TRULY is a teacher there, as he spends all the SCHOOL DAY posting here on the CF??? Are the TAXPAYERS that pay his alleged salary at Briarcliff Manor aware that he's screwing them?
All we know about Paulabe is what he SAYS, and as we all know what he says is worthless as he lies all the time.
"Your President ladies and Gents." You left out, for six more years.
All I know, if I were a Russian soldier in Syria, I’d be looking for a safe space.
that's no kidding.....Russian or Syrian doesn't look good. That place is a horrible mess. we should leave and stay out as much as possible. There are a at least 1/2 dozen factions involved in the fighting there. All of them would gladly kill us.
stay out... way too many libs are calling for war, they wanted to start bombing Russia over Trump winning the election, I don't trust what is being reported seems staged.
I don't believe Bolton is a lib. He's hellbent on a war with Syria and or Iran. Name one lib that are "calling for war".
Boy your fav IMposter. You are bouncing off the walls this evening. Typical of a LIAR, that can only stir the $hit, because he has NO FACTS with his stories. 8^)))
"Name one lib that are calling for war. "
A strike by US, British and French forces within the next 48-72 hours...
Pat, mods, please bring back the ‘tool panel’ so that we can get rid of the other ‘tools’ on here!
Pull out, let them eat their own... if they don't care enough about the people of their own region, they sure as hell don't care about us. Lib media has been beating war drums since Trump's major victory.
We just really don't need another unwinnable proxy war with nothing to gain and lives and money to lose.
US President Donald Trump tweets: "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"
Russia said they would shoot down our missiles as well as the sources of the missiles. This could get very interesting, and FAST.
Sounds like a good test to see who has better equipment, missiles vs anti missile tech. Someone is going to underperform, and it could shift the balance of power in that region. Hopefully our tech wins once again and gives Putin reason to pause and reassess.
Just imagine, if Obama had backed up the red line he put in place we wouldn't be dealing with Russia so deeply entrenched in Syria today. Obama failing to act on Syria as well as letting Putin have Crimea has emboldened the Russians......not to mention the Iranians. Time to reaffirm the American military dominance so things can settle down a bit.
Sureshot x2. It looks like it's got to get worse before it gets better. And that might require a little back and forth live-fire with the Russians to reaffirm whose gear trump's whose..... (No pun intended)
Wasn’t trump complaining that the US shouldn’t broadcast its military moves publicly? I guess he didn’t mean twitter.
And leaving Syria? Remember what leaving Iraq created? ISIS. There is no easy answer here. But when you have a president that isn’t a student of history or diplomacy, you’re going to get simplistic pseudo solutions.
I’m a nutshell, he’s in over his orange little head.
"I’m a nutshell, he’s in over his orange little head." in a nutshell this post is all you need to know about your least favimposter.
Trump is negotiating as usual, you have no idea 2hat his words mean or how this plays out.
PutZ, kid puked in the cafeteria, better get on it!
It doesn't seem that Trump is in over his head at all. Obama blinked and both the Russians and Iranians moved into Syria and undercut US influence in region. An Obama trifecta of failure losing out to Syria, Russia, and Iran.
Trump didn't blink at all. He successfully pulled off a cruise missile strike after seeing the first chemical attack. Without even interrupting his dinner with China's Xi. And now, with Russia directly saying they would stop us, Trump said go ahead and try with a new strike coming (I would guess 7-8pm tonight eastern time)
This sets the stage for how our forces compare to Russian and Iranian forces, and will weigh heavily on whether Assad stays in power, NK nuke talks, the south China sea, Iranian nuke deal, Russias hold on Crimea, etc.
I think Mattis knows what's at stake, and needs to demonstrate what we can do vs their ability to stop us. Downside is that we have some 2000 troops in eastern Syria in a rather vulnerable position.

If would be good if whatever we do it is done with the endorsement and cooperation of other nations. I cannot think of a time or a place that is more like the beginning of WWI than now in Syria. Nobody wanted a war then....yet we got one. It's a pit of vipers over there.....all of whom would gladly slit our throats......the Russkies most of all.
Ron Paul says it was a Deep State false flag designed to throw us into war and hurt Trump?
I think Ron Paul is a little on the nutty side. And to that point, a greater Syrian war only helps Trump when the media pressure is hounding him.
However, it could still be a ploy to pull allies into the war. The anti-Assad rebels might have done this themselves to get us to destroy Assad for them. I mean, Chlorine gas is not very sophisticated stuff. Not as much as if it were Sarin or some other military grade nerve agent.
Trump called out Obama for tipping his hand in Syria. Now he's doing the same thing.
In Sept 2013 Trump told Obama to stay out of Syria.
US has no evidence of Syrian use of sarin gas, Mattis says February 2, 2018 “We have other reports from the battlefield from people who claim it’s been used,” Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon. “We do not have evidence of it.”
There are plenty of liberals in congress pushing for Trump to strike Syria. I am curious why this is??
Atheist -the difference is that Obama was tipping his hand about running away and thus he created ISIS in Iraq. Here, Trump is telling Putin he is not afraid of him (like Obama was) and daring Russia to try and stop us from slapping his boy Assad.
That's not to say who did this most recent chemical attack. I don't know and have my doubts. But in about 4 hours the two toughest kids on the block are going to square up and establish a global pecking order.
8 years of weakness has pushed us way past that now, and a challenge has been levied and accepted. The superpower card was played....
I guess this shoots the "Russia Collusion" angle all to hell ......... ;0) .... and it wont all be American missiles either, the UK, France and possibly Israel will have a chance to whack a few moles or is it camels ... either way Syria is in deep crap right now ...... I was watching a report and the "expert" said this was done for sure by Syria or even possible Russian aircraft... the rebels dont have the type of aircraft to drop the cluster bombs or barrel bombs that carries these type nerve agents and gas ..
Key word, here...Obama!
If France joins a strike, it could launch its Rafale warplanes from French soil and use aerial refueling to get them to the target region.
This was the preferred course of action chosen by France's then president Francois Hollande in August 2013, after chemical attacks in Ghouta left more than 1,400 people dead.
But ultimately, Barack Obama famously declined to launch an operation in Syria, forcing Paris to stand down even though it had a half dozen Rafales ready at the Saint-Dizier air base in eastern France.
Another possibility is launching strikes from a multi-mission frigate equipped with cruise missiles. A French military official said France permanently has such a ship in the eastern Mediterranean.
Last time we attacked Syria, there was only 2 US Carriers in the region... now there is 4 and many many more support ships, destroyers and the like.... there will be many times the missiles sent this time around, last time it was only 54 I believe ...
atheist has now left the porn star, russian collusion, and now it's Syria. 8^))) Still can't get anything to stick on the wall, i see??? 8^))) You know yourfav IMposter, If you democrats would work with Trump on peoples issues, as hard as you are trying to under mine him, the USA would be a better place. The people are noticing how bad you democrats want to SCREW the American people, by trying to under mine the POTUS, instead of working for the people. The people proved this by voting in Trump. Keep hanging yourselves. You are helping us get Trump another term. Thanks. 8^)))

Hmmmm, I am rather surprised we didn't blow something in Syria up last night. And today Trump is almost walking it back a bit, maybe yes -maybe no. We shall see.
Unless someone proves this chemical attack was not done by Syria, I would be shocked if we didn't launch a sizeable retaliatory attack by Sunday.
More claims of staged and/or false flag attack.
Do we believe our media?
Spike Bull 's Link
Putin will back down. Trump is crazy, like a fox. The Russian economy stinks and he knows our military is superior. Russian people are tired of war like we are but again, Trump is crazier as far as they are concerned. If this country goes liberal, we will see war as that signals to Putin we have lost our nerve. Now tear me apart, but remember this post.
I agree, lawdy. The struggles and associated games will never cease and should not surprise anyone.
More claims of false flag.
Same Islamic Rebel Group Accusing Assad of Chemical Attacks Used Chemical Weapons Against Kurds
Spike - moving bodies around to make more heartfelt photos doesn't explain how they died in the first place. The question is siimply who released the chemical agents that killed them. Macron says France has proof it was Assad.
Staging is staging. We don't even know if those kids were actually killed or if there was some other theatrics involved.
However, until the Frenchy provides enough evidence or Mattis is otherwise convinced we should not be hasty. I am happy that Trump has them nervous! Unlike obozo.
Yep, the Rushkies have moved much of their Navy out of harms way according to reports. In the meantime they're occupying themselves by buzzing our Destroyers. You can best make deals with enemies and adversaries when they are kept in the dark or on the edge. Nope to TPP and then maybe so. IF we get this. No to NAFTA and then maybe. Attack we will and then maybe not. We're pulling out and then we're going in heavier. Fat little gargoyle is dead and now we're going to talk. We've finally got a leader who has only this countries best interests at stake. His message to other countries is clear. You will far better yourself by being our friend rather than out enemy.
Trump is like a squirrel in traffic. Darting this way, then that way and you trumpettes cheer it on as if it’s calculated. He INEPT. Nothing in his past proves he has a bit of leadership quality. Nothing in his present proves he listens to advisors. He spouts off on twitter about “here they come, new and smart”. What the hell is that gibberish. Until Mattis tells him to sit down and put the damn phone down and shut up. The jackass think the military is his own personal video game.
Just like you, wouldn't you say you fav IMposter? You are darting every which way possible, to keep from answering questions, of someone proving the LIAR, that you are. You lose your balls.
Libtards, libtards as far as the eye can see!
Russians were first ones in after the chemical attack and claimed it never happened at all. Today the Russians are saying they have irrefutable proof that a foreign spec ops team deployed the Chem weapon. To me, that conflicting position points to the guilty party.
Still need to get people we trust in there to identify the toxins. There remains a slim chance the rebels are trying to bait us into the fight. BUT If anything more than chlorine gas then likely the Syrian government. If witness testimony concludes it was dropped from a chopper or plane, then definitely the Syrian gov't..... and we begin the ass kicking. Remind the Russians, Chinese, Iranians, and North Koreans once again who is the lone global Superpower.
If the Russians are claiming that crap, then you know it was Syria led ..... however, it is wise to check, but there has been time for clean up, esp. if Russian has been in there already ... French and UK say it was Syria, there is a group going in, but will any evidence be left .....
