Swifty's (sorry Fred, third person ripoff here) version of the Syria chemical weapons attack.

Trump correctly determines that the United States and Europe are stuck with an Iranian- and Russian-backed Assad regime. Trump decides to pull troops. That's not necessarily wrong.

Trump (idiotically) decides to announce he is pulling out troops to a bunch of Trumpie yahoos. They orgiastically roil and MAGA in ecstasy at the sound of Trump's well-honed approximation of bullshit-less speech mode. (The secret to success is, of course, sincerity. Once you can fake sincerity well, you've got it made.) The whole thing reminds me of night crawlers in a dewy field under moonlight. Extremely gross but natural.

Putin tells his little Syrian dirtball, Assad, to go ahead and do the usual "red line misbehavior." Assad complies. Children die in agony.

Trump is forced to order "something." He does. Cruise missiles again. This is just a repeat of previous episodes of the geopolitics reality show. No one notices. Click. Move on.

Trumpies faint in ecstasy. (They do that a lot.)

The Syrian profit center becomes even more entrenched. NBD.

1. The fact you think Assad ordered a chem attack renders all of your pontifications

suspect and not to be taken on face value.

NO DENIAL IS EVER BELIEVED. IF SOMEONE "CLAIMS" THEY DID *NOT* ALERT ON YOU THEY ARE LIKELY *TELLING* *THE* *TRUTH* THEY'VE BEEN *SET* UP* REPEAT *SET* *UP*

10. Read my SURVIVING DISCUSSIONIST 101 Twelve-point guide on other thread today.

Somebody knows what they're doing. I've not been taking extreme measures for nothing. If I wasn't, I'd 100% not be here right now. I don't care how it looks.

Will Morningstar is my real actual pen name, no different than William Rivers Pitt. I have cash invested in publishing under this name. It will hurt me financially if I am killed.

I know the enemies of DI like to "DOXX" people. The last time a man on this site publicly threatened to get my phone # and "have bill collectors call you all night", I invited him to find me at home, and suggested he come armed and start shooting first.

Nobody can threaten me or DOXX me here. I am a DI Member in good standing and am entitled to the rights and privileges of same, including the right to peace and safety, as are we all. It's our own fault we've bought into "snitch culture" and that our safety features are only used to hurt the innocent. We are all responsible for this.That's perverted. And we have only ourselves to blame.

12. I had to walk the eggshells for 6 weeks with 4 hides and still got the job done. Have 2

timing out in about 3 weeks so I'm good.

Just need to throttle my commentary... Some can't handle the truth.

14. Check DI Member Maya's (top DU founding member) OP "WOW!", 178 replies...

...my first week here, one of my pitched battles where I stood alone in the Octagon and fought them ALL singlehanded. This was some Jedi s#&t.

I don't do eggshells. I am unalertable. No troll in his right mind would alert on me now. Skinner likes the Democrats, right?. Skinner wants to be liked by the Democrats, right? Skinner gives us a free hand here. It's up to us what we do with it. You think Skinner doesn't know or care what's going on here? Really? He's just staying out of the way.

8. They are, effectively, in the same interest group as us.

It's traditional only. That is, we have ties to them, not to mention "formal" alliances. In some contexts, they are us and we are them. When we act, "they" are generally going to act unless we are completely nuts.

11. So they're incapable of independent decision making?

And bomb other countries just because we do?

That's a pretty lame explanation you're offering.

13. I'm not sure why you think it's lame.

It's a fact that they act with us. I don't really care how you choose to characterize it for rhetorical purposes. That's all on you.

15. Sorry but I consider the UK and France to be sovereign entities

And I doubt that they take the decision to drop bombs or launch missiles on another country as lightly as you seem to think.

And Macron is a lefty to boot. Probably not a big fan of Trump so I doubt he's just going along to get along with Trump and that he sees some value in bombing Syria.

16. Here's the bernt-toast version of events

Trump announces he wants to exit Syria, which is what Assad and Putin also would prefer, especially since they are winning against the rebels that we have been aiding. Getting us out of the way makes their job that much easier.

Moderate rebels (aka ISIS) panic at potential loss support and use chemical weapons on civilians to force Trump to "do something."

Trump, Macron & May give warning so civilians can get out of the way, launch missiles at chemical production site and hopefully do enough damage to prevent production of more chemicals.
