Americans comment on Trump's words on order to eliminate Assad

50

US President Donald Trump considered the possibility of physically eliminating Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, but he was persuaded by former Defense Secretary General James Mattis. The head of the United States claims that everything was ready to eliminate Assad, and he would have preferred to do it, but Mattis did not support his decision.


Donald Trump spoke about this in an interview on Fox News.

He criticizes the former defense minister, calling him an "overrated general." The President notes that both he and his predecessor Barack Obama fired Mattis. According to Trump, the general could not cope with ISIS (a terrorist group banned in the Russian Federation), this was done only after his resignation.

And although the head of the White House advocated the elimination of Assad, according to him, he does not regret not doing it. Trump took the cancellation of the operation to eliminate the Syrian leader for granted.

After the interview was published, many Americans commented on it. One noted that the United States had become a non-legal state. Another believes that although Assad is a terrible person, removing him would lead to a loss of support for Washington's policies in Europe and the Middle East.

Another American, who identified himself as Jeddyhi, noted that he did not like the Syrian leader, but it would be a big mistake to remove him:

Guys like Assad are needed. They are brutal dictators, but they keep the radicals in check. Without them, the radicals will immediately rush to look for something else to blow up. Look at Iraq. Without Saddam, chaos ensued and ISIS emerged. It's the same in Libya after the assassination of Gaddafi.

    Well, he blurted out, well, with the wrong words, it happens, and age. To understand and to forgive.
    Our GDP would never allow such a thing. And sometimes you want to. Maybe that's why there is such trust in his words in the world. The truth is here at home ..... repeat jambs.

          In 1943, the Reich propaganda minister of the Third Reich, Joseph Goebbels, received the Nobel Gold Medal for the Prize for Literature. However, he was not elected a laureate.

              Vidkun Quisling was put at the head of the puppet government of Norway. At his request, the Norwegian parliament, the Storting, elected a new Norwegian Nobel Committee from among those who support his Nazi Party National Unity.
              The new committee began to actively prepare the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Adolf Hitler, but the Fuhrer did not want to violate his own law of 1937. During his visit to Berlin in February 1942, Widkung Quisling again invited Hitler to become a laureate, or to make such a Rudolf Hess, who was so carried away by the idea of ​​concluding peace between Great Britain and Germany that he ended up in an English prison.

          In 1935, the peace prize was awarded in absentia (he was in a concentration camp, died in 1938), anti-fascist Karl Osetzky, for the fight against militarization in Germany., From 39 to 45 years, the peace prize was not awarded. Maybe you don't need to engage in myth-making.

            The Italian Fascist dictator was nominated in 1935 which was the same year he invaded Ethiopia.
            The next of these figures to be nominated was Adolf Hitler. In 1939, Hitler was nominated by EGC Brandt who was a member of the Swedish parliament.
