you seem to forget trump is always concerned about making money to pick a fight with Russia will lose him billions of dollars .
Then why did he just attack Putin's ally? You are making zero sense here.

That was true for WW II fighters but many of the current ones are heavy suckers and a quick repave doesn't cut it anymore. It would still be a several week project, perhaps longer depending on the infrastructure there.

Thank you.


It would be nice if you could just admit that you do not know but admitting that is not in your MO. So you will just avoid the question. How very progressive of you.
So why not blurt out the silly conspiracy theory you are enthralled with.
Let me guess, this was a "false flag" operation, you like those, everything is a "false flag operation" in your world, like Sandy Hook, 911, Pearl Harbor and nearly everything else in the "so called history books".


I "know" what happened because I read about it in news sources that I trust.
Oh, I know that occasionally those sources get something wrong, but in the real world we deal with that, we don't assume that nothing we read is true, unless it's on some crazy conspiracy website.
Thanks from Clara007 and GhostRider

I think that's where Putin let Trump blow up a few buildings and destroy a couple of aircraft that were probably half cannibalized for parts already so he could look tough and stay in power where Putin wants him.
The liar trump's excuse for not destroying the runway was because the runways could be "fixed" too easily. What the hell good did it do to bomb the taxiways? None of the pics I've seen show any damage to the hangars except for some smoke damage. Why were all the hangars empty? This was nothing but trump trying to act like something he isn't, a Commander in Chief. Once again the American people are being lied to by the liar in chief trump.

59 Tomahawks in one hour and no substantial damage was nothing but an expensive fireworks display. What is just as disturbing as trump's actions is the fact that our military leaders went along with such an inadequate plan. If we were going to launch an attack we should have done some real damage.

• Trump gets to look tough, or maybe moral, by ordering the action.

• Putin, too, gets to look good to the home crowd for showing "restraint" by not starting WWIII.

• Assad's air force is weakened, which strengthens Russia's air superiority and weakens Assad who's an embarrassment for Putin, similar to how Kim is an embarrassment for Xi.

• Trump and Putin get to say to their respective accusers, "See? We're not big buddies!"

• Trump gets to blame Obama again for the mess he inherited.

I'm sure I've missed some points so please add to the list.
All make more sense than Assad using chemical weapons the other day.

Unlike "red-line" Obimbo, Trump used the only means of argument these people understand. And that is, violence will be met with violence.
Again you are a fucking liar. President Obama couldn't get congress to authorize an attack and secondly he got Putin to agree to take Assad's WMDs. Obama is out of office and Assad uses gas under the liar trump's watch, YOUR wanna be President was challenged by Assad, YOUR wannabe President whimped out like the coward he always was and will always be. The only message the liar trump sent was that he is NOT a Commander in. Chief.

Putin did allow it to happen. We know that now. We know that Trump informed him of what he was going to do. I also think Putin made the decision to not shoot down the missiles and not push things up. Much like Kruschev backing down during the Russian missile crisis

You meed some proof. Sorry but your now in tinfoil hat territory.


Tin foil hat conspiracy theory. Find the proof instead of yammering about smoke an such. Thats all I am saying

Quite possibly, but it makes more sense than Assad using chemical weapons.

I was/am completely spitballing. then again there is more that points in those directions than the bullshit that we have been fed.

The differance is that I am able to admit that I am making an educated guess.

So instead of yammering about it post some evidence.

Should be easy since you are so bloody confidant. But you have not, I wonder why?

Huh?

Trump's message must have been lost in translation??
The liar trump's only message was that he is an inept pussy grabber.
