There seems to be a lot of confusion and a great deal of “hype” about what happened with Syria this week in terms of the use of sarin gas which reportedly killed more than 70 people, including dozens of women and children.
Who is to blame?
It all depends on who you ask.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had this to say earlier on Thursday:
“There is no doubt in our minds and the information we have supports that Syria, the Syrian regime under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad are responsible for this attack.”
Tillerson also cautioned Russia to “consider carefully their continued support of the Assad regime.” Is this a veiled threat by Tillerson toward Russia?
The Syrian government has denied responsibility while the Russians are apparently standing by their ally and cautioned others to wait before rushing to judgment. Putin went so far as to say he may veto a United Nations Security measure which condemns the assault.
And then there are those like Infowars who claim the Syrian “gas attack” was a false flag which is pressuring the Trump administration to intervene in Syria.
Talk of a false flag apparently set off a Twitter storm on social media with #SyriaHoax:
We don't want war in Syria!! Don't believe the #SyriaHoax, we need to focus on our own country right now. America First.

“Madness” indeed for the general public who is trying to figure out who to believe and to stop any potential military action to remove Assad from power.
Even Ron Paul said:
“It makes no sense, even if you were totally separate from this and take no sides of this and you were just an analyst, it doesn’t make sense for Assad under these conditions to all of the sudden use poison gasses. I think it’s zero chance that he would have done this deliberately.
Others like Amir Tsarfati of BeholdIsrael who served in the Israeli military and still maintains contacts with officials inside the military, believe that the attack was carried out by Assad as he has done “40 times before” against his own people in the past six years.
Amidst the controversy and some unanswered questions for many, President Donald Trump launched a missile attack against Syria on Thursday.
At this writing, 59 missiles were launched onto an airfield controlled by Assad. The tomahawk missiles were launched from two Navy warships at dawn.
Not every Trump supporter was happy about the sudden airstrike on Syria. Many took to social media to express their disapproval of Trump’s actions.
Instead of launching Tomahawk Missiles into Syria, how about focusing on stuff at home?
What happened to America First?

There were others, however, who applauded Trump’s bold actions.

Obama drew the red line; Trump acted on it. That is the difference between a sheep and a lion. #Syria
