I think the Russians were behind the nerve gas attack on Syrian Muslims – and I think it was revenge for the ISIS attack on the St. Petersburg subway. The Russians don’t play – you mess with the Motherland you get it back – in spades.
Also, I think they thought Trump would not respond because for the last five years, Obama did nothing in the Syrian civil war except give them words, words, and more words.
Instead, Trump gave them 60 cruise missiles with just enough advance warning for the guilty Russian pilots and ground crews to get clear, minus their expensive jets.
So much for the theory that Trump favors the Russkis, heh?
A stunning update on Friday afternoon said the Pentagon is investigating possible Russian participation in the Syrian chemical weapons attack.
