I don't believe people around here quite grasp how deep and real​​​​ his anti-war support was during the election. It was a defining litmus test for an "alt-right" movement that in many ways see NeoCons as their biggest enemy. 

Hillary's hawkishness on Syria exacerbated this. 

I therefore naturally assumed that Iran, not Syria, would be the rock upon which Trump's unstable-ass coalition would eventually shatter, perhaps in year two or three.

Assad, I naturally assumed, would be left alone as per orders from Moscow. Any atrocities would be handwaved away with RT talking points. Maybe Pence rattles his cuck sabre a little during a speech, but that's it. 

When Trump cryptically implied military action earlier this week, my reaction was "yeah right, I almost wish you were that stupid​​​​​​" 

Imagine my surprise when I woke up last night to learn that he was.

​​​​​​Nigel Farage has never criticized Donald Trump until now, ya'll.
