Many world leaders around the world do not believe that Syria had any form of chemical weapons in its arsenal, this includes Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, who see the U.S. attack on Syria has “aggression against a sovereign state in violation of the norms of international law.”
Both Russia and China agree that Syria has no chemical weapon as a thorough inspection was recently done by the United Nations. This whole attack on Syria is being done on a “Trumped-up” pretext, according to Putin.
So the question in the coming days will be, did the U.S. supply terrorists with chemical weapons then orchestrate the attack in Syria in order to build their case to start a war. This would be nothing new and would in fact follow in the line with the Bush 43rd administration who falsely claimed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction before going to war with that country. In the words of the late Yogi Berra, this could be “Déjà vu all over again.”
POTUS 43 took out Saddam Hussein, POTUS 44 took out Muammar Gaddafi; is it POTUS 45 job to take out Bashar al-Assad?
Many in the United States see the attack on Syria as a “wag the dog” move by Trump to distract attention from the ongoing investigation into their alleged collusion with Russia during the presidential campaign. Meanwhile, Putin believes the attack is for a completely different reason.
The Kremlin added that Putin sees the latest US military action as “an attempt to distract from the mounting civilian casualties in Iraq.”
So neither Americans nor other foreigners are buying what the Trump’s administration is selling.
