Words Don't Matter, Is The Implication.


A week ago, Rexit suggested that the US will no longer have the goal of removing Assad from power. A few days later he, Assad, used sarin gas. Again. Naturally, Trump blamed it on Obama. Because the words coming from him and his administration don't matter.

Couple years ago, Trump "warned" President Obama not to engage in Syria without Congressional approval. He also, when Obama's poll numbers were low, predicted Obama would strike Syria to improve them. Words, is all.

I have no idea what the right thing to do is, though.

Also, I have no idea what the guy in the picture is talking about.

Hello Syd

On the "matter" of words...

"...Assad, used sarin gas"

Everyone, it seems, believes those words. Yet, I am an old dog and remain skeptical.
For me it's a "matter" of credibility. Consider the words of Tom Duggan...

And the words of Lawrence Wilkerson...

I find their words very credible. Is something the "matter" with me?

I, also, have no idea what the guy in the picture is talking about.

The problem with having a president who's an undeniable pathological liar is that there's no basis for believing anything he says. My next newspaper column will address that aspect of the Syria situation, among others.

FWIW, I've always found Wilkerson credible. The other guy? No basis for knowing.
