Donald Trump's stance against intervention in Syria was a major campaign promise that made me want to vote for him. For The Donald to do a complete 180 turn and intervene in this fashion is a huge disappointment for me and most of his base.
Also, I have to ask, what in the world does President Assad get from gassing his own people? This lie wasn't believed the first time they tried to pass it along. Why believe it the second time? This entire mess reeks of a false flag operation. Perhaps I'm wrong about something. But I believe that Trump is getting played by warhawks. That's my opinion today. It could change tomorrow.
However, even Syria Girl has been stating that the chemical weapon attack is a false flag:
If it is true that President Assad gassed his own people, then answer me this: why did he choose that particular target of people? Why did he choose that pocket of people to gas to death? Am I to believe that Assad is a madman who happens to run a country and enjoys randomly gassing his own citizens?
Am I to really believe that Donald Trump saw pictures of dead kids on TV, and he decided to suddenly toy with WWIII? I like how Ann Coulter summed it up:
Trump campaigned on not getting involved in Mideast. Said it always helps our enemies & creates more refugees. Then he saw a picture on TV.
What a turnaround. What a mess. In 2013, Trump said many times that he didn't want the US to go into Syria. Here are quite a few instances of this on Twitter, which I'm sure you'll see repeated in the news in the weeks to come:

The so-called ‘moderate’ Syrian rebels pledged their allegiance to ISIS after Obama’s address. We should not be arming them!- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)
I would not be surprised if the Deep State--which includes the CIA and others--have been pushing Trump's close confidants out (such as Bannon), and replacing them with Neocons and warhawks who are ready to push Trump into this. Either way, it's bad.
ISIS is our fault. Thanks to our meddling, the Christians are being wiped out in the Middle East. And the world will soon be at war. Rather than wipe out ISIS, the Trump administration has decided to escalate things
To see who the evil people are in our government, merely look at the people who are happy with Trump's recent missle attack in Syria. Then you'll know who the villains are.
