If you only care about trump attacking Syria because it could start a major war and not about the fact that syrians have been suffering for years at the hands of Assad to then having America constantly destabilize/adding more trauma and deaths and now in their darkest times will continue to suffer, then you’re an asshole and you really dont care about anyone but yourself lmao
President Trump has launched 59 Tomahawk missiles, striking Syria. We have gotten further involved in another war in the Middle East. This action will only further complicate the troubles in the region. We will see just how as the reactions unfold.
So I’m not OLD old but I do want to point out that Bush was polling real fucking low before we all went to war in Iraq and that Thatcher was on the brink of irrelevance before the Falklands.
The fact that May’s cabinet* is being militaristic and belligerent toward Spain and that POTUS 45 has launched 50 warheads into Syria is a political act to solidify authority.
In the coming months the UK and USA are going to have patriotism and glory-baiting shoved down our throats.
So remember these things:
1) War is hell, don’t let your representatives condone it.
2) You can support the men and women in the armed forces as individuals without supporting the military-imperial business model.
3) Times of war are when leaders must be held the most accountable for their actions, not rallied behind for the greater good.
The UK Government has yet to issue any new statement regarding military action in Syria. This is not a good time to live in.
Peace is an open hand, not a Tomahawk warhead.
*EDIT: William Hague is a Tory Life Peer, former party leader, former First Secretary of State, and Former Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, among other titles. While not part of the Cabinet as claimed, he is still politically relevant.
does anyone else have a sick feeling in their stomach right now? i honestly don’t know how i feel about the situation in syria, but i know the incompetent half-sentient cheeto in the white house isn’t equipped to handle a fucking war
This attack is not helping Syrians in any way shape or form?? Some of you actually think trump is doing Syrians a favor like how ugly do you have to be to believe that??? Idgaf what Trumps intention with the airstrike is, INNOCENT people WILL die. Donald Trump hiding behind Asaad’s regime is everything that is wrong with this. Innocent people will die and it will be HIS fault. He isnt doing ANYONE a favor and you’re disgusting if you think this is his way of protecting Syrians from Assad’s regimes and ISIS.
