Probably another 9/11. I doubt ISIS will not retaliate and will use this as propaganda to continue fighting jihad. Might even lead to a massive coalition between all of these extremist groups.

err ... OK ... I see this needs a quick (dumbed down - biased from the persective of the West) recap of the situation:
  • Assad (with the backing of Russia) - Current cruel leader of Syria - which is in a cival war.
  • ISIS, one of the 'civilian' groups in Syria, trying to create a caliphate
  • Other civilian groups, which are both against the ISIS extremlists, but also against Assad
  • The "West" (US, europe), who also don't like Assad & ISIS
It's a three man fight vs the current gov [1], the extremists [2] and the rest [3]

 

 

Now, Trump[4] bombed Assad[1], because Assad used chemical attacks against civilians[3] - this isn an attack on ISIS[2].

From ISIS [2] Point of view, Any trouble between Trump [4] and Assad/Putin[1] plays in their cards

 

Important to note is that Trump warned the Russains about the strike, and Assad didn't really lose any power (6 planes that were out for repair. Syria has about 500 of them). So, for this event to lead to some World War? Doubtful.

(heck, there are theories out there, that this attack is just an excuse for Trump to lift sanctions against Russia)

In the future please make thread openers in the Politics, religions and science section a lot stronger content wise than just "what now". I'll leave the thread up because the comments mostly redeemed it but take this as a verbal warning

pol hates trump

everyone hates trump now

he failed us

/pol/ praises trump, not everyone hates trump xdddd

The only thing he failed on was fucking Antifa, fuck those terrorists.

 

The media created an image of Trump being the worst President ever, but almost all media is Liberal, even here in Belgium.

 

He is destroying the media tho, I hate newspapers who have their opinion in all of these articals which should be neutral.

Do you know what a terrorist is? Because Antifa is not a terrorist organization, just as much as Black Lives Matter is not one either.

 

 

Hyperqube was almost on point on the situation in Syria, but it's definitely a lot more complicated than that.

 

Syria is basically a proxy war, between five-ish main factions: Syrian Arab Army, Opposition, Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces / YPG, Tahrir al-Sham (Al-Qaeda), and ISIL.

 

Syrian Arab Army (Mainly Shiite Islam) is backed by Iran, Hezbollah, and Russia. It is the main army of Bashar-al Assad, and is also backed by Shiite Islamist organizations like the Yemeni Houthis.

 

Opposition (Mainly Sunni Islam) is backed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and formerly the United States. It is almost 100% compromised of Sunnis, who are fighting in groups hoping to make Syria an Islamic State. (Not like ISIS though)

 

Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces / YPG (Secular / Athiest beliefs, mainly comprised of Sunni Kurds) is backed by the United States, Russia, and members of the 'Coalition' against ISIL (mostly NATO members).

 

Tahrir al-Sham (Al-Qaeda) (Sunni Islam) is backed by no country officially, but is indirectly supported by Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, and the United States by weapon supplements. They hope to create an Islamic Caliphate much like ISIL wants to, except they are in direct conflict with each other.

 

ISIL (Sunni Islam) is backed by nobody.

 

So, the Syrian Arab Army is fighting the OppositionTahrir al-Sham (Al-Qaeda) and ISIL. 

The Opposition is fighting Tahrir al-Sham (Al-Qaeda)ISIL, the Syrian Arab Army, and the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces / YPG. But, the Opposition is no one centralized group, but is comprised of many splinter groups which are all fighting with their own version of Islamism / Salafism.

Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces / YPG are fighting the OppositionTahrir al-Sham (Al-Qaeda)ISIL, and occasionally the Syrian Arab Army. But, the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces / YPG are somewhat allies with the Syrian Arab Army. They are also fighting Turkey, which claims that they are bombing PKK fighters, which are waging an armed insurgency in Turkey.

Tahrir al-Sham (Al-Qaeda) is allied with other Al-Qaeda groups, but nothing actually inside Syria.

ISIL is fighting everybody, especially the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces / YPG. They are being indirectly helped by Turkey, which is bombing the YPG, but also occasionally bombs ISIL as well.

Literally a 10 second google search and I found this:

Also, actual Syrians support Donald Trump? Have you ever met a Syrian? He bans them from entering the United States, sends some missiles as an apology, and they support him? No.

 

Another 10 second google search and I found:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/jan/17/syrians-support-assad-western-propaganda

 

Syrian support of the 'Opposition' has shrunken dramatically since 2011, they are not the heroes the West makes them out to be.

"Trump bombs Syria" so as those who he represents bombs everyone else.

 

On George Floyd case: Trump makes a statement that we are responsible for our problems, and they can't do anything about it.
