US Vows to Keep Pressure on Syria as Hawks Urge More Attacks

Following Thursday’s missile attacks against Syria, the Trump Administration has vowed to keep the pressure up against the Syrian government, though exactly what that means means uncertain, with officials sending mixed signals on whether they’re going to militarily impose regime change on Syria or not.

In the meantime, they can expect to hear non-stop heckling from various hawks, demanding more attacks and more aggression as a matter of course, and insisting anything short of that would be taken as a sign of weakness by the international community.

And where there is hawkish sentiment to be expressed, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC) won’t be far behind. Graham today insisted that by continuing to carry out airstrikes from the base the United States attacked, Syria was telling President Trump “F you.” He went on to demand 5,000 to 6,000 US ground troops be sent to Syria, both to wipe out ISIS and then to impose regime change therein.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word here, please.

Is there even a plan here, post-bombing, and punishing the wrong people for what they did hot do?!?

Because if there is not a plan, there really needs to be an adult in the room, in the bowels of power in DC, who understands all the ramifications of the bombing, and where, reasonably, the US can (and morally, should) go from here.

The US military has just bombed the assets of a sovereign nation, against which it has not declared war, and this has been done through executive order only, when Congress is Constitutionally given the power to declare war.

And Senator Graham, where are these 5,000 to 7,000 troops you are insisting Trump send to Syria, going to come from, please?!?

The US military is already overstretched to the max, in terms of troop strength, so President Trump would have to pull them from somewhere else, to deploy them inside Syria.

Senator Graham knows that such a move will most probably mean war with Russia, but absolutely doesn't give a damn about the price in blood and money which will have to be spent to get such a war going.

One has to wonder just how much of Senator Graham's portfolio is invested in the military/industrial complex.

Senator Lindsey Graham's net worth is $3 million dollars

Such a war would almost immediately necessitate the reintroduction of a military draft.
