MEDIA HARDEST HIT: Trump Didn’t Call Putin Before Launching Tomahawks Against Syria

By Saagar Enjeti

President Donald Trump did not call Russian President Vladimir Putin before sending 60 Tomahawk missiles to strike a Syrian airfield likely used in a Tuesday chemical weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Trump justified the strike, saying it was in the “vital national interest” of the U.S. to ensure chemical weapons were not used in violation of international norms.

Russia has thousands of troops inside Syria and remains the main backer of Assad, along with the Islamic Republic of Iran. Russia warned the U.S. hours before the strike in the United Nations from taking unilateral action, but was reportedly informed before the strike through other channels.

Sen. Marco Rubio said Thursday if a Russian solider was present at the airfield and killed during the strike, they were complicit by being there.

There was no communication at the head of state level between the U.S. and Russia.

Now, while I think this might still be just a staging, and distancing between Putin and Trump, and through levels of layers agreed upon or at least acknowledged... a staged event... as I brew on things...

All I am saying is it wouldn't surprise me if if Putin and Trump are gaffing the media and world. Who seem woefully naive to the point of stupidity. They believe, much as with science, only what can be proven... in spite of... pretty much nothing truly being provable. (for long *cough*) The media is used to having almost complete access to the Zero admin, moreso to cover for their mistakes, corruption, and etc. than to inform us, of course. So when they have no real access, and even their deep state leaks are drying up? The world is falling apart! It must be!

I... at first... was a little disappointed with Trump. Then, as more information came out, and some things got put together in my mind, I... started rethinking things. Of course, if Russian sends nukes, I'll know I was wrong. Though some expected, and lightly retaliated retaliations might be in order. Just... saying.

Nothing is what it seems. And what it is is, more often than not... also nothing. :p
