Day 79: Unconvinced

News continues to be dominated by Trump's actions in Syria. While this is appropriate, it is also (predictably) removing discussion from things like Russian collusion with the Trump administration.

As usual, the recent military action has been taken under the premise of "humanitarian" goals. This is absolutely bullshit. Military action is always taken for political goals. If the US really cared about humanitarian goals, they would invest in the clean-up after their military action. The effect of such lack of support in such situations has been recently highlighted in countries like Libya and Iraq, where the countries have essentially devolved into anarchy following the removal of their respective dictators.
