Over the course of the last three months, President Trump's compassion towards Russia has been evident. His staff all have connections to the former USSR. Policy has been kind toward the region.
Finally congress and the FBI observed what we the people saw and started to dig into the matter. There was opposition from certain republicans, but with Devin Nunes stepping down we could see a clear path to a fair investigation.
Trump's house of cards was crumbling.
Then, like a miracle from God, Assad releases a horrific chemical attack on his own people. Trump now has the opportunity to become the strong president, the kind of leader people rally behind. At the same time, his action cause friction between Russia and America - creating the appearance of distance.
Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke of Syria before Trump ordered our warships into battle stating that any action by America against the Assad government would have "negative consequences."
With Russia's threat on the table Trump could now act.
Perched in the eastern Mediterranean the USS Ross and Porter awaited orders to fire. When Washington sent the command, 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched. The target, an airfield at al-Shayrat, near Homs Syria. At daybreak the destruction could was evident. Pot-marks now littered the once pristine base. Seven fighter jets destroyed.
Russian Prime minister, Dmitry Medvedev, had this to say during a Facebook post.
"The last remaining election fog has lifted. Instead of an overworked statement about a joint fight against the biggest enemy, Isis (Islamic State), the Trump administration proved that it will fiercely fight the legitimate Syrian government, in a tough contradiction with international law and without UN approval, in violation of its own procedures stipulating that the Congress must first be notified of any military operation unrelated to aggression against the US. On the verge of a military clash with Russia."
"Nobody is overestimating the value of pre-election promises, but there must be limits of decency. Beyond that is absolute mistrust. Which is really sad for our now completely ruined relations. And which is good news for terrorists."
"One more thing. This military action is a clear indication of the US president's extreme dependency on the opinion of the Washington establishment, the one that the new president strongly criticised in his inauguration speech. Soon after his victory, I noted that everything would depend on how soon Trump's election promises would be broken by the existing power machine. It took only two and a half months."
All of the events leading up to the missile attack can be rationalized as an escape button for Trump and Putin. Both men needed to distance themselves from each other. Their connections were starting to be exposed. By working with Assad, Putin set up a scenario were America could flex its' might and assert its' independence from other world leaders.
Russia's statements condemning the attacks and threatening action against the U.S.A. furthers the ruse. Appearance is everything. Furthermore, soon after Putin stated any action against Assad would have negative consequences, he was informed by the Pentagon of America's plan so that Russian and Syrian troops could evacuate the base.
We will let you decide if you believe in the conspiracy. We choose to say that there are too many conveniences for the events of the last few days to be anything short of collusion with Russia.
