Bodies are still being discovered after an alleged chemical weapons attack on the outskirts of Damascus that killed hundreds of people and the death toll will rise, a Syrian opposition spokesman said Thursday.
The opposition accused government forces of gassing hundreds of people on Wednesday by firing rockets that released deadly fumes over rebel-held Damascus suburbs, killing men, women and children as they slept.
“We expect the number (of dead) to grow because we just discovered a neighborhood in Zamalka where there are houses full of dead people,” Syrian National Coalition spokesman Khaled Saleh told Reuters in Istanbul, where the opposition has held regular meetings throughout the conflict.
Activist Alexia Jade, speaking via Skype from Damascus, told The Daily Star that doctors were overwhelmed trying to treat the injured.
Estimates for the death toll have ranged from 500 to well over double that number, which would make it the world’s most lethal chemical weapons attack since the 1980s. Syrian authorities have denied government forces used chemical weapons.
Fahad Almasri, spokesman for the rebel Free Syria Army in Paris, said its branch in Damascus had documented 1,729 deaths following Wednesday’s attack. He added that 6,000 people were also suffering from breathing problems.
What did President Trump have to say about all this horror happening in Syria in 2013?
That said, the rich Arab countries should get involved with the Syrian mess, not us.We should start rebuilding our own country & military.

The Arab League stated that it wants nothing to do with an attack on Syria, but they want us to attack.Are our leaders insane or just stupid

The only reason President Obama wants to attack Syria is to save face over his very dumb RED LINE statement. Do NOT attack Syria,fix U.S.A.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2013
AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA – IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2013
President Obama, do not attack Syria. There is no upside and tremendous downside. Save your "powder" for another (and more important) day!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 7, 2013
Obama must now start focusing on OUR COUNTRY, jobs, healthcare and all of our many problems. Forget Syria and make America great again!

Do you believe that Obama is giving weapons to "moderate rebels" in Syria.Isn't sure who they are. What the hell is he doing.Will turn on us

Trump Stated that the President has to get Approval before Attacking Syria:
The President must get Congressional approval before attacking Syria-big mistake if he does not!

Trump was asked in October 2015 on Meet the Press, about his thoughts on Syria:
“Look, we have Iran and we have Russia totally on the side of Assad. And that’s not the reason I stay out necessarily, but certainly it’s a complicating factor. But we have them totally on the side of Assad. We have to knock the hell out of ISIS. And if we’re going after Assad and ISIS and they’re fighting each other, people are going to say what the hell are we doing.”
Trump also agreed that Assad is not a good guy , but our priority should be to attack ISIS:
“So Assad is not a good guy, but the people that we’re backing, a lot of people think they’re ISIS, that we’re actually backing ISIS. So what are we doing? We have to get rid of ISIS first; Assad, we think about later on.”
Why is Highlighting this Important?
When you see people disagreeing with the current actions of the President, they are pointing to Trump’s long history being against attacking Syria. Especially when the opposition is Al Qaeda, ISIS, and/or rebels who want an Islamic Caliphate. Donald Trump correctly saw this during the campaign. He saw that we only have two plausible choices in Syria: Assad or an ISIS like group.
His current stance is almost 180 degrees against to his prior stance of the campaign. Much like the Obamacare repeal that was not an Obamacare repeal. You could even state that his current stance is completely different from the one they had a little over a week ago where they were accepting the political reality of keeping Assad in power.
I have a question for those advising Donald Trump:
Is Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan better or worse after we invaded?
Afghanistan has a democratic government that follows sharia law and a re-ascendant Taliban.
Iraq is destabilized into a three de facto independent states with a galvanized Iran gaining more and more influence.
Libya is a chaotic mess that resulted in the deaths of Americans at Benghazi.
The only regime protecting Christians in Syria is the Assad regime. Thousands upon thousands of Christians are killed in the middle east and elsewhere every year by islamic, cultist psychopaths. Bleatings from nevertrumper globalists like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Bill Kristol, etc. about the dozens of poor muslims getting killed in Syria while they ignore the thousands of deaths of Christians elsewhere, I find myself not giving a rip about their feelings.
Which moves us to the next point in the Syria scenario.
Christians in Syria Want Assad in Power
Christians in Syria have been cheering on Assad’s victories over the rebels. In the city of Aleppo, the 40,000 Christians living there are hoping that Assad and the Russians take complete control of the city away from the Syrian ISIS rebels. The rebels there call themselves the Army of Conquest. Doesn’t sound very friendly given their history of torturing and murdering of their enemy civilians:
The estimated 40,000 Christians in Aleppo are not among the civilians who are dreading the fall of the city to the Russia and Iran-backed regime of dictator Bashar al Assad, according to a charity group that helps persecuted Christians.
These Christians instead reportedly fear the return of the rebels to Aleppo, particularly the jihadi coalition known as Jaish Al Fatah, or ‘Army of Conquest,’ that includes the likes of the Syrian al-Qaeda branch formerly known as the Nusra Front before it became Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (Front for the Conquest of the Levant).Jaish Al Fatah has been “heavily involved” in the battle for Aleppo and the persecution of Christians in the city, claims the charity group Barnabas Fund.
Until recently, Aleppo city had been roughly divided between Assad regime control in the west and rebel control in the east since 2012.
The Russian government and the U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which uses a network of ground sources to monitor the ongoing civil war in Syria, have declared that the Assad regime is now in control of Aleppo.
How Long Are We Going to Sit Back and Let Muslims Continue to Commit Genocide Against Christians?
Thousands of Christians died in Sudan and other African nations over the years at the hands of jihadis. The ISIS genocide against Christians in Iraq and Syria isn’t a priority, but stopping Assad who is being blamed by the rebels and others from chemical weapons against dozens of people is? (Just so I’m clear, is everyone okay with Assad just killing children with conventional weapons like ISIS does?)
A few dead men, women, and children in Syria are not any consequence now when there have been thousands killed all over the world in bigger atrocities. I don’t see John McCain saying we need to bomb every single Planned Parenthood genocidal abortion factory in the United States, where they rip the insides out of a live baby.
The Stockholm terror attacker was targeting children in particular in his attack two days ago. Children were mangled and killed. When do we start bombing Sweden, Lindsey Graham?
“The bodies have not been shown to the families because they are people who are decapitated, people who are bloated and people who have been disemboweled,” one police witness told officials.”
Is it time to bomb Islamic areas in Paris? The Nice attacker ran down scores of people. Do we bomb islamic areas in Nice too? McMuffin is unavailable to comment.
What about the terror attacks on the schools in Russia and Pakistan? We had hundreds of children killed in those two incidents, why didn’t the US start bombing Russia and Pakistan then? Bill Kristol I’m sure changed his Twitter and Facebook background to a flag of the country each time it happened. I’m sure he was very quick to remind everyone Islam was the religion of peace.
Why does Boko Haram still exist? If we are going to be the world’s policeman again, let us stop being selective in our outrageous outrage. And for Gods sakes, stop giving a platform to the masturbatory fantasies of John McISIS and crew. They are poison.
In the first attack, a bomb went off inside St. George’s Church in the Nile Delta city of Tanta, killing at least 27 people and wounding 78, officials said.
A few hours later, a suicide bomber rushed toward St. Mark’s Cathedral in the coastal city of Alexandria, the historic seat of Christendom in Egypt, killing at least 16 people and wounding 41, the Interior Ministry said.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks. When do the bombs start falling on them?
Let me remind everyone, we didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy. Nor did we vote for Barack Obama’s foreign policy. We voted for Donald Trump’s foreign policy, the one he laid out during the campaign. We didn’t vote for a ground invasion of Syria. We didn’t vote for nation-building in Syria.
If this remains a single attack against the air field, fine. The administration and Donald Trump have made noises about wanting regime change in Syria. Americans did not vote for another middle east war, and they definitely did not vote for another middle east war to fight a secular dictator for ISIS and Al Qaeda.
What we did in Syria would be considered an act of war if any other country did the same actions against the United States. The only reason we haven’t started formally fighting yet is because we will have to face off against Russia, who is also sounding the war drums.
Did Americans vote for WWIII?
Remember when you said this President Trump? Don’t forget why you said this:
Remember, all these ‘freedom fighters’ in Syria want to fly planes into our buildings.

And finally, President Trump, please stop with the idea of currying favor with the Democrat and the Republican establishments. This will not somehow stop them from voting to impeach you. They will still vote to impeach you. They are bought and paid for by the Deep State either through blackmail or corruption. They are not on your side. Stay with the base that voted you into office and drain the swamp.
