THE SYRIA SHOW: Any US Strike on Assad is ‘Just for Show’
Posted On 12 Apr 2018 /
An American airstrike on Syria looked more likely this week after President Trump warned Russian authorities to “get ready,” raising new questions over the United States’ overall plan for the region and what steps to take going forward.
“I’m pretty frustrated on the Syria situation,” said Buck Sexton. “There’s a lot that demands our attention more so than what’s going on in Syria on any given day. I so rarely see any worthwhile discussion or analysis on Syria, you just have everyone doing a lot of moral posturing.”
“Somehow as a country -at least in the leadership class- they seem to have this impulse to flex US military might abroad and make a statement in a part of the world where this is just for show,” he added.
“Have we not learned the problems of trying to rebuild someone else’s country for them? Or trying to hold it together?” Sexton asked. “No one has a plan that’s even worth listening to, no one knows anything.”
