Trump was clear during the campaign that he opposed what happened in Iraq and Syria. Could it be he was confronted by the deep state with an ultimatum: We are going to bomb Syria no matter what. You can either play along to save face so it still appears that you are in charge, or we can make it perfectly clear that you no longer hold the reigns when we bomb them anyway?
It almost seems like the forces within the deep state and the military are hijacking the Trump presidency and his popularity as the cover for their attempt to finish off all of the regimes that oppose American hegemony, Syria, North Korea, eventually Iran and Russia.
Just a question.
