Trump: ‘Not Going Into Syria’

After last week’s Tomahawk strike on Syria,there have been wild rumors and speculations about America preparing for a regime change in the the region.  President Donald Trump cleared the air on Tuesday, as he said during an exclusive interview for the New York Post that all the war mongering pedaled by the usual suspects on CNN and the well known war-hawks are in vain, as he is staying true to his campaign promises:

“We’re not going into Syria. Our policy is the same — it hasn’t changed. We’re not going into Syria.”

The POTUS called Syrian president Bashar al Assad a barbarian and a butcher during a telephone interview on Tuesday, for his alleged use of sarin gas on civilians. Donald Trump also said that last week’s rocket attack on a Syrian military airfield was not the beginning of a full scale campaign aimed at regime change.

Following an intense backlash from the conservatives and the deplorables who elected him, Trump told the NYP:

“Our big mission is getting rid of ISIS. That’s where it’s always been. But when you see kids choking to death, you watch their lungs burning out, we had to hit him and hit him hard.”

The Tomahawk attack on the Syrian military airfield was described as an act of humanity by the President. When asked if it was hard to make that decision, Trump answered:

“It’s very tough to give that final go-ahead when you know you’re talking about human life. We went back and forth, and also back and forth about severity. We could have gone bigger in terms of targets and more of them, but we thought this would be the appropriate first shot. We hope he won’t do any more gassing.”

About the possibility of a future cooperation with Russia in Syria, and how serious are the threats coming from the ruskies, The Donald said:

“We’re not exactly on the same wavelength with Russia, to put it mildly. Putin must see what a barbarian this guy is, and it’s a very bad symbol for Russia with this guy gassing children and using barrel bombs.”

Trump manifested his indignation about the failed deal Obama signed back in 2013 (and he boasted about it repeatedly), which was aimed at forcing Syria to destroy its chemical weapons cache.  And that obviously didn’t happen. Also, about the catastrophic Iran deal, President Trump said:

“It was the single worst deal ever. It’s a disgrace that a deal like that was even signed. It made Iran a power from a country that was ready to fall apart. Iran won’t honor its deal. Instead of saying, ‘Thank you very much for saving our country,’ they’ve been emboldened.”

About North Korea’s nuclear threats:

I knew I was left a mess, but it’s worse than I thought.

When asked about any recent contact with former president Barack Obama:

“No. I’m very disappointed that I was surveilled and so was my campaign. That’s not supposed to be happening, but I’ve been proven right.”

Judging from The Donald’s own words and ignoring the warmongering of his surrogates, it looks very probable that America will use Russia and China to mitigate the problems diplomatically instead of relying on our sheer military force. Assad is Putin’s protege and the crazy fat kid Kim is totally dependent on China.

And I bet both China and Russia got the President’s message.
