Trump’s Immoral Syria Misadventure

Apr 13th, 2017 | By | Category: Weekly Washington Updates

Ann Coulter’s latest commentary scorches President Trump over his Syrian misadventure and compares war to crack cocaine for presidents.

Her commentary is excellent, but she fails to mention the fact that President Trump’s bombing of Syria also puts Christians more at risk in that nation. Their future grows ever more dim in that part of the world where warring Muslim factions are fighting for supremacy.

According to Coulter:

War is like crack for presidents. It confers instant gravitas, catapulting them to respectability, bypassing all station stops. They get to make macho pronouncements on a topic where every utterance is seen as august.

On the other hand, Trump’s Syrian misadventure is immoral, violates every promise he ran on and could sink his presidency.

Left to his own devices, uncontaminated by Washington groupthink, Trump gets it right.

She continues:

We have never succeeded at turning a Third World dictatorship into a paradise. The history of these things is that removing a Middle Eastern strongman always makes things worse – for example, in Iran, Iraq, Libya and Egypt.

We leap in, thinking we’re helping the poor devils under the thumb of a dictator – and then the new tribe takes over and oppresses everyone else, usually much more brutally, while hating us even more than the old tribe did.

If voters wanted more Middle Eastern wars, there were plenty of other candidates offering that: Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, Carly Fiorina and Hillary Clinton, for example. And we must never forget Jeb! though it proved surprisingly easy to do so in 2016.

But we picked Trump.
