Dangerous theater by Trump
If Donald Trump and his unqualified ship of fools want to help the unbearably mistreated Syrian people, why have they only allowed a microscopic amount (11 this year) to immigrate to a safe haven in the U.S. instead of welcoming them to our shores?
Probably because Trump’s reaction against Syrian gassing of its people is like the rest of his sad life: phony, B-grade, self-obsessed theater and now with military action supposedly related to an unlikely riff between him and his Russian partner in crime.
Wanting to look like he’s not in bed with a man responsible for undermining the U.S. democratic process and stealing the presidential election in his favor — and fearing the blow-back of his financial, political, and sexual improprieties — Trump’s lousy acting and military strikes include potentially exacerbating atrocities against Syria’s already decimated population and an even larger war in an unstable region.
Do Americans have a red line — a point at which they’ll stand up for our nation’s deepest roots of justice, acceptance, humility, and generosity?
If we do, it’s time to shake partisanship and stand up against leaders so twisted that they use foreign lands and innocent civilians as part of their obscene political games. Demand protection for the legal investigation of Trump, and tell your elected officials to do everything possible to stop more U.S. attacks on Syria that could further ravage innocent people and their lands.
