Controversy over Trump launching missiles | Assad uses chemical attacks on his own people
By Zohaib Shahid B.
I usually post short stories on my website but since this is a very huge topic and has caused a lot of controversy, I have decided I will explain my reasoning and understanding and
DISCLAIMER : This article may appear biased and is very opinionated. I am not a natural writer. I like to reflect on events using other articles and sources to explain my own reasoning.
About one week ago Assad had dropped chemical weapons on his people which led to a lot of questions and confusion. Why did he do such a thing to his own people? This article by the Washington Post suggest that he used chemical weapons to inflict fear into the people. It disgusts me to see people that lack the simplest of human attributes and empathy or sympathy to carry out such heinous acts. People will do a lot for power. And it is the worst when they get high off of that power!
Another example of a group trying to gain power would be terrorist. They will kill thousands of people claiming it was their religion which told them. And they will make such statements without even having understood a page of the book they claim to follow ruining the image of an entire religion for their own personal gains in political power. Such acts that were to put to shame even the worst in history. They make it too obvious that what they do is not religious but in fact anti-religion and insane.
It is disgusting to witness what people will do for power. Here is an article by CNN about the survivors that survived this horrible attack. It was easy for any sane human being to form an opinion that Assad is a dictator who had committed not just this one horrible attack but many before. The controversial topic is discussing weather Trump launching more than 50 tomahawk missiles onto a base, as claimed, can be justifiable. This is a topic I myself can not come to an opinion for myself to stand with.
I believe there may be something shady behind the fact that Mr.Trump, as he claims, has launched the missiles in favor of the refugees he tried to ban not one but two times. One time it being a ban for a while and the second time it not passing. Mr. Trump also allowed the increase of drone strikes. And drone strikes are known to have ‘accidentally’ hit innocents most of the time. Is messing with other nations really “putting America first” as Mr.Trump’s campaign had claimed? Russia sent warships to Syrian coasts which could foreshadow another great war, so were Mr.Trump’s actions really justifiable or reasonable or well thought out?
This causes me to question what were Mr.Trump’s real intentions? During Mr.Trump’s speech on the use of chemical weapons in Syria by Assad, What has me thinking more is the fact that Mr.Trump’s tone was monotone. His face had shown little or no expression. One would assume that such words would match an angry tone and an angry face. Especially when we are talking about Mr. Trump we would expect at least some expression But there was no expression. Mr.Trump showed more face expression while standing quiet during the debates. I am still caused to lean very moderate on the actions taken by Mr.Trump but I believe that any sane human being would be against the actions taken by Assad.
