Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, April 14, 2018

President Donald Trump declared "Mission Accomplished!" hours after joint strikes on Syria by the U.S. and key allies, inviting immediate comparisons to President George W. Bush's early, misplaced optimism about the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. "A perfectly executed strike last night," Trump said in a Twitter message. "Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine military. Could not have had a better result. Mission accomplished!"

The words "Mission Accomplished" were famously displayed on a banner behind President Bush in an address from the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln in May 2003, in which he prematurely declared the end to major combat operations in Iraq. Ari Fleischer, Bush's press secretary at the time of the speech, said on Twitter that "Um ... I would have recommended ending this tweet with not those two words."

Did he wear a flight suit with a cod piece and land on a aircraft carrier?

I didn't think so.

But I bet his Twitter fingers are really sore after that workout.

I would be happy if Putin released the pee tapes but I doubt that will be his response. Unfortunately, I think his response will be aimed at American military personnel. And then Trump will be duty bound to respond. And then it all begins.

I doubt it. Putin, unlike donald, is really smart and well informed.

No one didn't want Trump to do something, some of us just don't think missiles were the right response. We have a U.N., that is the venue for the response. Of course though, with John Bolton as National Security Advisor that idea was rejected immediately.
Bolton got his way, now let's see what happens. I think it is going to suck.

I agree - his strategy is keen to gas and oil access and false flags. A direct confrontation isn't as useful as coordinating with other nefarious nations such as Israel.

Remember when they tried to make it look like Dumbya landed the plane on the carrier? LOL. Would take "a ton of hollywood magic" to make Orange Adolf look like he landed a plane on a carrier.
