a) He tweeted several times during 2013 onward that Obama shouldn’t get involved in Syria.
b) He admired Assad before Tuesday’s gas attack (IMO, because Putin told him to).
c) The main reason for Russia’s “irrational” backing of Assad is that Russia has two oil refineries along Syria’s coast.
d) The condemnation of the gas attack is meaningless.
e) Blame Obama.
f) If you saw the news conference where this picture was taken, it was, to say the least, *embarrassing*. He used 5th grader words.
g) He has already put boots on the ground in Syria. 500 of them.
h) The meaningless approach to Syria by attacking Russia’s approval of Assad: He (via Tillerson, “former” head of Exxon) has a $500B Exxon oil deal with Russia that is dependent on the Russian sanctions being lifted.
Summary: The gas attack means nothing to Chump. He’s simply in a quagmire trying to get sanctions lifted but Congress is in his way, so he has to “appear strong” (make like a bully spewing nonsense).
