Syria in perspective
It has been six days since Trump bombed Syria. There’s no evidence that Trump has any intent of doing anything else in Syria. We let loose a few missiles, not a single American soldier was in the line of fire, and it’s not even clear that any Syrians were killed (although the Syrian government claims some were killed).
Trump still seems to have benefited immensely from the missile strike. The mainstream media has turned down the volume on the Russian Conspiracy by a huge amount. Most of the mainstream politicians whose support Trump needs to get anything done are very happy about the strike. Some Trump-haters in the media are expressing their exasperation that Trump has benefited so much from the strike. That’s how we know it was a good move for Trump. If it was bad for Trump, the Trump-haters would be gloating about it.
