Trump Backslaps Syria

Late last week while my wife an I enjoyed a couple of rare days off--together--Grand Nagus Donolf Trumpler met with China's president, Xi Jinping.

Oh, and launched a Tomahawk missile strike against the Syrian airbase that conducted a chemical weapons attack.

Apparently, the Grand Nagus didn't get Barry O's memo about establishing multiple red lines for murderous dictators to cross.

Reactions--on both sides of the political divide--have been mixed.  Russia certainly isn't happy.

Speaking of the Russians:  The Pentagon is conducting an investigation to determine if Russia actually helped Syria conduct the chemical attack.

While I share the concern about us getting into a "Syrian quagmire"--or worse--going head-to-head with Russia, like The Diplomad and Dystopic are--and for good reasons--I'm all for putting the Usual Suspects "on notice." 

Even if the Syrian airbase is back in business:  Mark Steyn pointed out Trump hit a reset button for the world, while Greg Gutfeld cheered Trump reminded everyone who's boss.

Whether one thinks the Grand Nagus made the right decision or the wrong one, at this point it's better than making no decisions at all...
