Yes, Trump’s Syrian air strike really was ‘mission accomplished’
The writers of this Associated
Press article are equating President Trump's "mission
accomplished" statement with President Bush's.
Trump on Saturday declared "Mission Accomplished" for a
U.S.-led allied missile attack on Syria's chemical weapons program, but the
Pentagon said the pummeling of three chemical-related facilities left enough
others intact to enable the Assad government to use banned weapons against
civilians if it chooses.

and ships launched more than 100 missiles nearly unopposed by Syrian air
defenses. "Could not have had a better result. Mission

recalled a similar claim associated with President George W. Bush following the
U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May
2003 alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it
became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that tied down U.S.
forces for years.
comparison. The writers obviously know that this mission was to take
out specific facilities with little collateral damage, and that is exactly what
our forces did. In other words, this mission was
accomplished. He did not say there would be no more
missions. The media just can't stand to give Trump credit for
In 2013, Syria's
Assad dictatorship attacked his people with chemical weapons. This
left President Obama on the horns of a dilemma because he had drawn the
fictitious red line in Syria and he didn't really want to follow
through. Therefore, he, and his secretary of state, John Kerry, came
up with a fantastic solution. They would claim that Syria had turned
over all of its chemical weapons, and, with pure brilliance, they decided that
the extremely trustworthy Russian dictator, a supporter of Assad, would hold
him in line. What could go wrong with that strategy? Of
course, Russia's President Vladimir Putin and Syrian dictator Bashar Assad did
not keep their word. Now it has been left up to Trump to actually
protect the Syrian people.
It is amazing how the
media act as though Obama was tough on Putin and then project that Trump is
Last week, in his
confirmation hearing for secretary of state, Mike Pompeo was asked if he would
be a yes man for Trump. He said "no." Isn't it
a shame that neither the media nor the Democrats ever cared that Obama surrounded
himself with yes men? Everyone at the Environmental Protection
Agency, the Department of Energy, the IRS, the Justice Department, the State
Department, the intelligence agencies, the Interior Department, etc. did
exactly what Obama wanted, and journalists and Democrats also almost
universally all supported it.
welcomed a Russian proposal on Monday for Syria to place its
chemical weapons under international control, opening up the first real chance
of a political settlement to the crisis since hundreds of civilians died in an
attack on a Damascus suburb last month.
came after an apparent stumble by the US secretary of state, John
Kerry, which set off a diplomatic scramble in Washington as administration
officials sought to assess whether it offered a way out for Obama from what has
become an increasingly intractable problem.
Speaking in London,
Kerry suggested that the only way for Syria to avoid the threat of a US
attack would be for it to hand over all its chemical weapons within a week.

At the end of eight

left Trump with a lot of things to fix.
