I feel the same way I felt when G.W. Bush declared he was going to war in Iraq because, for one thing, Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons against his own people, or at least that was the claim of America's intelligence community.
But no point in reinventing the wheel by writing about how this makes me feel when it's already been expressed so eloquently. Here's Paul Joseph Watson (or at least here he is as long as YouTube lets him be on their turf)...
The Truth About Trump's Air Strike on Syria
Trump - and America with him - if he continues down this NeoCon path, is going to be in deep deep dung. Remember when we realized that Obama was essentially Bush's third term? What's it up to now, term 5?
It's a charade. It's all a big nasty deadly charade. It's covert.
Did you get that? It's not the way it appears. It's covert. Trump included.
But who am I to say, eh?
I'm just glad someone else is out there saying it.
Something nobody is mentioning yet anyway is the amazing coincidence that just hours (not days) after Trump attacked Syria's military, Trump's Supreme Court choice was confirmed by the Senate following months of stonewalling.
Just coincidence, right? I mean this isn't how our government actually works, is it?
Actually I think the first time I remember having this same sinking feeling about a Republican President was when Nixon kept escalating Democrat Lyndon Johnson's Vietnam War after assuring the American public repeatedly that he was seeking peace.
I wonder if there have ever been - since the Sixties at least - any American wars that didn't involve the growing and distribution of drugs by the CIA. Google the Opium Wars if you don't believe us English-speaking Whites are capable of such underhanded monkey business.
Things are not what they appear to be. Think "covert".

Update Saturday April 8
There's nothing like war to unite the mainstream media in this country. Since Trump's election victory last November all the mainstream media outlets except one have been unabashedly anti-Trump, pro Obama, pro Clinton, the one exception being Fox News which has been the Trump administration's prime time apologist. All of a sudden all the media outlets are blowing the same horn in harmony. Even Fox has gone gung-ho for Obama's war against Syria.
Bear in mind for a moment that Syria is at war against the same ideology that brought about the 9/11 attacks. The names have changed and the geography is different but the objective is the same, drive out foreign imperial power in the Middle East and establish Muslim Sharia Law.
Syria is on our side against Islamic totalitarian control of the Middle East.
Russia is on our side against Islamic totalitarian control of the Middle East.
Yet the mainstream media has for quite some time now trumpeted the view that Syria and Russia both are America's enemies in the Middle East.
Pay attention to this observation:
As far as I know, nobody has made the claim that either the Syrian government or Russia favor Sharia Law or Islamic terrorism.
Many alternative news theorists have proposed that the United States covertly supports - directly, covertly, and through its allies - the Islamic extremists who oppose the influence of the world's imperial powers in the Middle East. It has been the function of mainstream media in the West to mask this fact.
Again, since this is not an easy concept to embrace, independent observers report that the United States secretly, covertly, supports those who attacked us on 9/11.
It is no secret that back in the 1980's under Ronald Reagan's authority the United States trained, armed, and paid for the radical Islamic forces that drove Russia out of Afghanistan.
Ever since then, though, it has been a tightly-kept secret that the United States is continuing that same effort.
Get this... It is - get that, it is! - a secret that the United States and its allies support Islamic extremists in the Middle East. We and our allies seem to train, arm, and fund any group which stands in opposition to the Syrian government, but we do it in secret behind the backs of the American public and lie about it whenever anyone mentions the truth. The function of Western mainstream media is to convince us that this reality just isn't true, to convince us that the US government's lies are the real truth.
We were aware of how this works way back when it was going on relative to the Vietnam War.
We were aware of how this works back during the second Iraq War after America's 2003 invasion. We eventually realized the lies. Fox News seemed to be the one exception back then. They didn't seem to wish to acknowledge the possibility that President Bush and his team lied to us using the mainstream media as a propaganda tool.
But we are not aware that the same thing is happening now under Trump.
seems to be on the bandwagon here in harmony with the mainstream media.
That comes as no surprise. Ever since Obama defeated John McCain, Fox News has advocated for the Neo-Con agenda.
The one exception in all of the US government, the one lone voice of reason and truth, seems to be Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, Democrat, war veteran, politician, truth-teller. Listen to the points she makes in her interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson
I'd like to find a more reasonable understanding of all this. But where would I even begin to look for it?
