Apocalyptic ideas might be the wild-card in the nuclear pokergame.
U.S. fighting in six countries, Commander in Chief Trump does not want any new wars, or to widen any existing wars in the Middle East
The war in Syria did begin.14 April a coalition of the United States, Britain and France dealt a blow, launching more than a hundred cruise missiles at the strategically important targets. The attacks managed to be repelled, but the fact of the attack shows very dangerous trend: it is possible that this is not the end.
Trump’s actions are undermining his authority among both his enemies (who say he has done too little) and his supporters (who elected him as an opponent of new wars and interventions). Trump’s electoral base has taken a strike to the heart. If tomorrow both globalists and populists converge in anti-war demonstrations, then this will be the end of Trump. Half-heartedness satisfies no one.
“If these strikes start, it could end very tragically and it’s impossible to predict the outcome -- that’s the nature of military actions,” said Russian Senator Frants Klintsevich in a phone interview, adding that there are "no madmen" among Trump's top military advisors. "These are professionals who aren't populists and know what this could lead to."
With his Sunday tweet that Bashar Assad, "Animal Assad," ordered a gas attack on Syrian civilians, and Vladimir Putin was morally complicit in the atrocity, President Donald Trump just painted himself and us into a corner.
