Early Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to warn Russia, who have vowed to shoot down all missiles fired at Syria, to get ready, “because they will be coming”.
Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!

President Trump also claims yet again that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad gassed his own people, which is a claim that Tucker Carlson contested based on the fact that it makes no sense for Assad to do that in his current situation.
Why do we keep broadcasting when we are going to attack Syria. Why can't we just be quiet and, if we attack at all, catch them by surprise?

It is ironic that President Trump is making threatening Tweets about attacking Syria, when he himself was very vocally opposed to attacking Syria while former President Obama was in office. He even sent no less than a dozen Tweets urging the former President not to attack Syria, as Big League Politics pointed out yesterday.
