The Smell of Tomahawks in the Morning

Trump Huffs and He Puffs

Finally, the President of the United States has made a statement to the world that he’s just like the movie character, John Shaft. Donnie may think he’s a bad (shut your mouth), but he should remember one of Shaft’s great pieces of advice, “Next time, you mutha, don’t bite off more than you can chew!”

Yes, we get it, you saw the pictures of the babies, the innocents of war being poisoned by a chemical that is banned by the Geneva Convention and other treaties and you had to act. You had to bomb the airbase in Syria where the sorties began, but do you have the next step planned? We know that you aren’t going to tell anyone what you are going to do, we get your secret military tactics, but did you tell Congress? You told the Russians you were going to bomb, so much for your big secret plan.

And now that you have decided to teach Assad a lesson, have you considered what happens now with the rebel insurgency and more importantly, what ISIS is thinking right now? Mostly likely, they consider your actions part their plan, not yours. Once again, a U.S. President has been drawn into the Middle East.

When you play the screaming pumpkin head at rallies you can talk about how regime change in Libya was bad and blame Obama and Hillary for the way the Middle East turned out. But this is real life now and you indeed have inherited a mess. That damn Eisenhower, propping up the Muslim Brotherhood in order to fight communism.

Stop saying you alone are going to fix it. You might want to stop that rhetoric and start to think about who else will be there to help you fix it. Remember why we call certain countries allies. You will have to get into bed with some strange dogmatic dudes in order to keep the peace in the Middle East. Ask your son-in-law.

What a coincidence that King Abdullah II was sitting in the White House while Donald J. Trump was agonizing over an answer to the age-old question created by a blast of human consciousness. At one point, Jordan was accepting 3,000 refugees a day from Syria and it’s likely the last person to speak to Trump on the matter of what to do with Syria was the King, a real king. Abdullah got what he wanted, someone else to mess with Assad. And Israel will be happy, too. Sounds like a tribal win-win to moderate Muslims and Zionists everywhere.

Are things looking up for the Donald? He even asked God to bless the whole world. Boy, that sounded like globalism to me. Steve Bannon was probably throwing up out of his limo window on the way home. With so many ex-Goldman people around this president and of course, the Democrat Kids, are we seeing the turn toward global awareness? Can climate change be next? Baby steps.

A spokesperson for the Kremlin said Putin believes the attack was done under a “trumped-up pretext” and that Vladimir denounced the US strike against a Syrian government airbase as an “aggression against a sovereign state in violation of the norms of international law.” OMG, has your buddy has turned against you? Can that tape of whatever happened in St. Petersburg be far behind? And did they actually use the phrase, “trumped-up?” Is that a word in Russian?

Now we get to see what you are really made of Mr. Know-It-All, as we all sing along with the Shaft theme, “Who is the man that would risk his neck for his brother, man? (Trump), Can ya dig it? Who’s the cat that won’t cop out when there’s danger all about? (Trump), Right on!

They claim six people were killed at the base in Syria. Are you counting Mr. President? We know why you did what you did, like George W. going back to Iraq to finish the job his father started. If seems like you are trying to fix all the things you think Obama did wrong, does that make Barack your daddy? Sad!
