Only hours after a very questionable chemical weapons incident that may very well have been staged from the word ‘go,’ U.S. President Donald Trump stood before reporters and the nation and channeled his inner Barack Obama, feigning human emotion and sadness at the death of children in Syria.
Trump repeated thoroughly discredited claims while attempted to drum up support for military action against the Syrian government by pulling at the heartstrings of the typically hardened American public.
“Assad choked out the lives of innocent men, women and children” he said. “It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of god should ever suffer such horror.”
But more children of God suffered such horror only hours later when Trump himself ordered a barrage of Tomahawk missiles to strike the al- Sha’aryat airbase near Homs, Syria. While many of the missiles did strike their targets – a tragedy in its own right – others missed, tearing into the al-Sha’aryat countryside, killing approximately nine civilians, four of whom were children.
A US missile strike targeting an airbase in central Syria killed nine civilians, including four children, on Friday, state news agency SANA reported.
The news agency said five of the civilians, among them three children, were killed in the village of Shayrat just outside the base of the same name.
“An American missile also hit the village of Al-Hamrat, which killed four civilians including a child,” it added.
“Another seven civilians were wounded when a missile hit homes in Al-Manzul, four kilometres (two and a half miles) away from the Shayrat air base,” it added.
