    ISIS lost their biggest advantage when the U.S. stopped giving the "rebels" weapons and training.

    Trump was wise to end that policy.

    That would then imply that US training is inferior to that of .... Syria and Russia?

    U.S. policy in Syria helping the "rebels" was in reality helping ISIS. The U.S. was so much invested in trying to take out Assad that it didn't want him to have any victories, not even in his fight against ISIS. But Trump ended that bad policy as soon as he took charge as Commander-in-Chief. And that change starved ISIS and opened them up for Assad and Russia to finish them.

    Saddam Hussein was a bad dude who murdered his own people and we wrecked his country and destabilized the whole area for that (nothing to do with oil contracts). Assad is a bad dude who murders his own people - do we give him a pass because some of them joined ISIS? Serious question.

    Assad didn't gas his own people.

    ISIS faked that story in order to get the U.S. to help them out when they were losing the fight.

    They were playing the U.S. like a fiddle.

    He did at one point, but he only took one action in response.

    Sounds like he only fell for it once, then... He gets a cookie for only being (allegedly) slightly gullible this time.

    Meanwhile, how much praise is he going to lavish on North Korea before he wises up?

    He's murdered them just the same, whether by gas or guns.

    This was even before then.

    I'm a little puzzled by the thread title: "another US aided victory for Trump" --

    Does that mean the US aided Donald in his victory?

    Palpable nonsense.

    US and UN investigators both found the Assad regime and opposition forces used chemical weapons in the conflict, and continue to do so.

    The UN OPCW found the Syrian government used mustard gas, chlorine and sarin. In 2017 the Trump administration even launched punitive strikes against Syrian forces over a chemical weapons attack.

    By your reasoning, did Abraham Lincoln "Murder his own people" when he resisted the Confederacy in the American Civil War?
    What about Georges Clemenceau for waging a defensive war on his country's own soil in World War One?

    Oh yeah. And chemical weapons.

    Both on his own people.

    BUT guys, he did not GAS them.

    I don't recall that Abraham Lincoln gunned down peaceful protesters and tortured their families, but perhaps my history books were remiss.

    Syrian Army Storms Dara’a, Cracking Down on Rebels

    The Civil War or, in Texas history, The War of Northern Aggression, remains our bloodiest war to date.

    I'm not familiar with this one.

    That was propaganda generated by ISIS.

    The media was stupid to fall for it.
