What after all is the point of having all those very expensive planes, rockets, drones, aircraft carriers and all their super white phosphorus, napalm, bunker busters, mini-nukes and anti-personal weapons if you cannot bomb the shit out of anyone you goddam well please. And anyhow, Trump's Israeli friends demand he bomb the shit out of Syria now.
So what to do?
Fake news, obviously, which is to say, government directed fake news not that crap from Crap News Network, Always Broadcasting Crap, and the other networks. Time now for those bastards to start spewing the government lies.
For those Trump supporters unwilling to write the Trump administration's Syrian Chemical Weapons crap, here's a face saving formula from Rurik commenting on an article at Unz.com by the Saker:
Seymour Hersh: US Lied About Syrian Chemical Attack Then Bombed Syria Anyway

And don't forget 9/11, when Donald Trump recited, for German TV, the official explanation for the collapse of the Twin Towers:
Interviewer: (at 2 min 40 sec): How would it be possible that a Boeing airplane would be able to destroy, or two planes, would be able to destroy the Twin Towers? Because they were constructed to withstand like a 707.
Trump: Um, well, it's tremendous power and tremendous heat ... the tremendous amounts of fuel that was dumped on the building, and sixteen hundred degrees temperature, I guess that was more than anything could take. No matter what.
There you have it, on 9/13, 2001, Trump enunciates what was to be the official, and scientifically untenable explanation for the collapse of the Twin Towers, the collapse of WTC Building 7 that was not hit by an aircraft, an embarrassing anomaly that neither Trump nor the US Government has ever wished to discuss.
