Trump’s decision to strike Syria is most definitely the biggest news happening in the world right now. God forbid it could eventually lead to WWIII, as some may suggest. Let’s hope not!
There is a lot of controversy on Trump’s decision. Was it a false flag? Was it the right decision? Is Trump breaking his campaign promises? While these questions may be on some people’s minds, many are 100% behind the President’s decision. Countries all over are speaking out against Assad and in support of Trump.
Here is a list of countries supporting the airstrike:
Australia, The United Kingdom, Canada, France & Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, New Zealand, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Turkey, UAE.
These countries swiftly condemned the chemical attacks and were very vocal in their support of Trump’s decision.
“The U.K. government fully supports the U.S. action, which we believe was an appropriate response to the barbaric chemical weapons attack launched by the Syrian regime and is intended to deter further attacks,” a British government spokesman said.
Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters: “Many innocent people became victims from the chemical attacks. Japan supports the U.S. government’s determination to prevent the spread and use of chemical weapons,” he said.
Turkey viewed the strikes positively and the international community should sustain its stance against the “barbarity” of the Syrian government, Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said.
French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel issued statements saying Assad was solely to blame for the air strikes.
The Dutch government said: “The United States has given a clear signal that the use of poison gas crosses a line.” It also labeled the strikes a “proportionate” response.
“U.S. strikes show needed resolve against barbaric chemical attacks. EU will work with the US to end brutality in Syria,” the chairman of the council of EU leaders, Donald Tusk, said on Twitter.
Trump must be feeling pretty good about himself right now. He is finally getting the praise he wants, but is that a good thing? The decision to strike Syria is going to have far lasting repercussions on the entire world. Within days, our relationship with Russia has once again taken a nosedive and the Democrats in office are cheering Trump for his decision.
I guess only time will tell, right?
What do you think? Did Trump do the right thing, or did he act too hastily?
