"Until the philosophy which hold one race superior
And another Inferior Is finally And permanently Discredited And abandoned -
Everywhere is war -Me say war."
~Bob Marley~ [From a speech by Haile Selassie to the United Nations in 1963]
There is BREAKING NEWS all over the cable networks tonight, and all the talking heads are talking about some type of military action being imminent in Syria. Our president was so anguished and upset at the thought of little babies being gassed to death that it made him change his mind about Syria and its despicable and murderous leader.
This is all kind of ironic, since it's probably the words from his secretary of state and his administration's position on Syria that emboldened al-Assad to act in such a manner in the first place.
So now we are being told that "all options are on the table", and that the president will act decisively to punish the Syrian leader and his troops. We will see.
Our leader has found his humanitarian side, and he does not believe that the world can just stand by and watch innocent children being killed by the use of chemical (or any other type) weapons. Of course what would also be considered acting in a humanitarian way would be to allow some of those Syrian refugees into our country. But sadly, we all know how our president feels about refugees.
I saw trump stumbling through the press conference with the King of Jordan by his side, and you could tell that he wanted us to believe that he was being sincere and genuinely felt for the victims of the attack. I wasn't buying it. I think the man is incapable of feeling anything for anyone other that himself.
"I think what Assad did is terrible. I think what happened in Syria is one of the truly egregious crimes. It shouldn't have happened. It shouldn't be allowed to happen..... "I think what happened in Syria is a disgrace to humanity. He's there, and I guess he's running things, so something should happen."'
"Something should happen", but we are all just afraid of what that "something" might be.
