I honestly wonder if anyone has really thought this through - what Trump clearly THINKS he is doing is punishing the Assad government for their use of chemical weapons.
And if they use them again, he will strike them again as further punishment to get them to stop.
But they are not using them, and cannot use them because they no longer have them, and that's verifiably true - we have the documentation.
So, what is all of this actually meant to achieve, and how is this intended to help make that happen?
I don't see how this can actually succeed, because it is entirely built upon delusional false-consciousness.
