Trump did it. He has finally won the gushing approval of CNN, thanks to an illegal missile strike against a sovereign Syria, that has now emboldened ISIS and Al Qaeda, and will surely prolong the suffering of the Syrian people.
And let’s not forget that US President Trump has now moved the world inches away from WW3.
CNN is happy…and they are loving Trump.

.@FareedZakaria on Syria strikes: “I think Donald Trump became President of the United States” last night
Zerohedge adds that for CNN, it took a war and pointed, globalist “rhetoric” for Trump to become President of the United States. Per CNN host Fareed Zakaria on “New Day” this morning:
“I think Donald Trump became president of the United States last night. I think this was actually a big moment.”
“Candidate Trump had said that he would never get involved in the Syrian civil war. He told President Obama you can not do this without the authorization of Congress. He seemed unconcerned with global norms.”
“President Trump recognized that the President of the United States does have to act to enforce international norms, does have to have this broader moral and political purpose. President Trump realized, as every president has for many decades now, that they have inherent legal authority as commander-in-chief and they don’t have to go to a pesky Congress every time they want military force.”
“For the first time really as president, he talked about international norms, international rules, about America’s role in enforcing justice in the world. It was the kind of rhetoric that we’ve come to expect from American presidents since Harry Truman, but it was the kind of rhetoric that President Trump had pointedly never used either on the campaign trail nor in his inaugural.”
“So I think there has been an interesting morphing and a kind of education of Donald Trump.”
The Duran readers: Tell us now…
While not normally a major player in Middle East geo-politicking let alone war, in many ways Bolivia stole the show at today’s heated debate in the United Nations Security Council.
Bolivian Ambassador to the UN Sacha Llorenti gave a short history of American lies used to justify imperialistic ventures. He spoke in the way that only a Latin American socialist could, coming where anti-American tensions have run high for many decades.
The highlight was when he shamed Nikki Haley by holding up the infamous photo of Colin Powell waving a model tube of anthrax before the Security Council in 2003, in the now infamous run up to the Iraq war. Powell’s presentation was debunked as being a total fraud.
Now watch Sacha Llorenti’s show-stopping performance at the UN.
