The stories of our bombing of Syrian airforce bases all lack something very important. Not only is there a complete lack of videos of it, no political cartoons about it, no opinion pieces in the papers and nothing against it other a few rumblings from the very far right and left, but most importantly nothing at all about how this could result in Putin having to sock some payback on Trump, causing the Russians to spill the beans on the Trump / Russian election story. Or releasing the video of Trump hiring women to pee on Obama’s bed! Though neither issue would to his rurality any harm.
So we bombed a Syrian airforce base along with lots of Russian planes and equipment and only killed four children, 25 less than Assad did last week with the gas.
This being a major bombing of another country, and this being America, I am sure that not only will Trump’s approval rating skyrocket from 35% to 80%, but the NYT, WAPO, CNN and the entire Media will be helping him pound the war drums. Who doesn’t like a good kickass bombing of other people faraway?
