“Unreality TV: The Swamp suckered Donald Trump into Syria | Mulshine”


"There is no truth to the rumor that, after watching an episode of "Gilligan's Island" on TV, President Trump ordered a search party sent out for the passengers and crew of the S.S. Minnow.

But he does tend to get carried away with what he sees on television.

We saw that last week when he launched a missile strike on the basis of what he admitted was his emotional reaction to a video.

In doing so, he went against the advice of a prominent Republican who in the early days of the Syrian civil war was saying things like "Don't attack Syria – an attack that will bring nothing but trouble for the U.S. Focus on making our country strong and great again." (Here's a long list of Trump's tweets arguing against intervention in the Mideast.)

That Republican was Trump. He got a lot of votes from conservatives who believed his oft-stated promise that the U.S. would no longer be "the policeman of the world" in a Trump administration."  Mulshine


As Mulshine writes I looked at the target sites from the US Defense Attaché's truck on a long ago visit to Syria.  We drove around to a lot of places.  These targets were in DIA's data base at that time.  pl
