President Donald Trump ordered the launch of over 50 cruise missiles to punish the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad. At a cost of $832,000 per Tomahawk missile, he just spent $49,088,000 in what has been described as a false flag gas attack by the Syrian regime.
While everyone would likely condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked. Consequently, Trump’s attack flies in the face of the U.S. Constitution requiring the President to get congressional authorization for military action.
This missile attack looks to me as a “police action”. The U.S. was not attacked. The alleged gas attack has the appearance of false flag operation carried out by the enemies of Bashar al-Assad. Pointing out that the prospect of peace in Syria was moving closer before the attack, with ISIS and Al-Qaeda on the run, former Congressman Ron Paul said the attack made no sense.
Just five days before the attack, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, “The longer-term status of President Assad will be decided by the Syrian people,” implying a definite shift in U.S. foreign policy away from regime change in Syria.
Why would Assad put such assurances in jeopardy by launching a horrific chemical attack, allowing establishment news outlets like CNN to once against use children as props to push for yet another massive war in the Middle East?
