Thank God for President Trump and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley. After eight miserable years of Obama and his gang, and the wretched Samantha Power as his ambassador to the UN, the U.S. is back: No more of Obama’s policy of “Leading With His Behind,” er, “Leading From Behind.” We are now…Leading!

American Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley warned members of the Security Council on Friday that the U.S. would not hesitate to conduct more strikes like the one last night in Syria if it must. “Bashar Assad must never use chemical weapons again,” she warned. “Ever.”

“The United States took a very measured step last night,” Haley said. “We are prepared to do more, but we hope that will not be necessary.”….

    I heard an interesting analysis of the strike, and it’s not what we’re hearing elsewhere, but it makes sense. I’ll repeat it here; decide for yourself.

    The strike was something of a Kabuki theater piece, where everyone — the U.S., the Russians, the Syrians — got what they wanted, or at least what they were willing to settle for. Once the Syrians executed a gas attack, it was understood by everyone (except maybe the Syrians) that there would have to be some response. But that response had to be negotiated with Russia, so as to preclude a larger war. Sure, 60 cruise missiles sound like a lot of firepower, and they did damage and made a point, but they didn’t disable the base or the runways. Destroying the runways would have required heavy bombers, thus putting pilots and crews at risk. And the Russians could have provided an air defense, and probably could have blocked a lot of the cruise missiles if they’d wanted to. So the limited strike, which achieved its goal without impediment, smells a bit like a scripted move. Trump makes his point, the Syrians take a small hit but proudly announce that they’re still in business, the Russians bluster indignantly and point out how little damage was done. Hopefully the Russians are privately annoyed at what their Syrian allies have done, and have told them not to do it again. Because if it happens again, then Trump will probably have to escalate and actually render the base unusable, and it will get harder to negotiate a scripted conflict that doesn’t put men in harm’s way or risk a larger war.
