When Trump arbitrarily struck a Syrian Air Force base with cruise missiles the other day he declared war on Syria and its dictator/ruler Bashar al Assad. The reason given for the attack was tenuous at best given the state of play in the middle east. Allegedly, Assad used sarin gas on his own women and children in some cruel but entirely meaningless attack. I don't believe Assad is that stupid. Nor do I believe that anybody at the highest levels in the Syrian military is that stupid. What they are though, is pissed off at Trump and Trump's America.
What would you do if you were bombed for no good reason? What would you do if you were attacked by a regime that has made it policy to topple dictators and turn them over to their islamic enemies and have seen most of your peers murdered by US backed thugs? I know what I would do because at that point one has nothing left to lose. One's life is already forfeit and if the terrorists don't kill you and your family, a cruise missile or a drone launched by Americans will.
Right now would not be a good time to live in the city. If the rising tide of violence doesn't kill you or destroy you, the next muslim attack using sarin gas in our cities will. Assad has no reason not to send a few of his happy Ba'athist thugs to New York or Washington DC and let loose the furies of war here in America. After all, we are waging war on him, his people and his country and he doesn't have anything left to lose now, does he?
