I don’t pretend to have an answer for what to do in Syria. I do know that part of the problem was Assad crossing Obama’s “red line.” And Obama showing off his uninspiring nether regions instead of backing it up (see Syrian Chemical Attack Survivor Blasts Obama’s Inaction, Begs Trump for Help… and Syrian President Assad: Yeah, Some Refugees are Definitely Terrorists…). Regardless, this guy giving props to Trump is golden.
Side note, my man is dressed pretty fly. I’m used to seeing refugees dress like… well, refugees. This cat has style. Respect.
I just want to tell Mr. Trump directly: I’m a Syrian refugee who survived chemical weapons attacks, who lived under two years of siege and bombardment by the government. I would love to, like, buy you a beer, and just sit in front of you and tell you how bad it is in Syria.
[Trump] proved once again, yesterday, that you have a big heart. At least a lot more bigger than Obama because you actually tried to do something. We need real, long-term commitment to bring peace to Syria.
And here I thought Trump was Hitler’s other son. Time to call in the Narrative Buster for this one.
Unfortunately, Trump doesn’t drink beer. But I’m sure he’d play a round of golf with this guy.
Though I’m curious to hear what your thoughts are. Comment below, should we intervene in Syria? Personally speaking (note the byline that isn’t Steven’s) feels like the War on Terror has left us with no good options. One one hand, if we say “Never Again” we should mean “Never Again.” On the other hand, the last thing we need is to commit our brothers and sisters in any more never-ending conflicts. Then there’s the refugee question. We’ve seen what’s happened to Europe (see European Union Admits Most Migrants Are NOT Actually Refugees… and New Study: 76% of “Child” Refugees are Actually Adults). When even Assad says some of the refugees are definitely terrorists, they can turn that boat around.
There aren’t any good answers, it seems. Just the matter of ranking which ones suck less.
