Waggin the Dogger

So this morning, a friend on my SIL's FB says,

"John Smith was asked to return to active duty with deployment to Iraq. His 3rd middle east deployment. This was 3 weeks ago when he was approached."

(Name changed to protect the soldier....)

So, ok.  Nerve gas from Assad aside, has anyone heard anything in the wind about war?  Because doesn't DT need congressional approval for that?  I am sure he thinks he can probably just sign an executive order.  Oh, wait, no, he knows that isn't the case....

So, he knows.  And he bombed Assad anyway.

What about this?  

....Putin knows full well that a gas attack like this was likely to prompt at least some kind U.S. military response against Assad. So Putin wouldn’t have been behind this unless he wanted the U.S. to take military action in Syria. And the only logical reason for Putin to want that is if he was trying to set up a win for Donald Trump, which could boost his historically low approval rating. It would also allow Trump to paint himself as being willing to go against Russian interests, as an argument against the most serious charges in the worsening Trump-Russia scandal.

Sounds like this has been in the works for a while now.  Shame on them, for killing babies with nerve gas to make the Orange Fuckhead seem pResidential.
