This Syrian Survivor Has A Message For President Trump And It’s Huge

Syrian Survivor Has A Message For President Trump

One survivor from the chemical weapons attack in Moadamiya claims he will name his son after President Trump because “This man is a hero. He has balls. This will give people hope. It’s all about hope. This is a game changer; it’s a new era that shows that America will actually do something. It shows there are real red lines in Syria.”

From Telegraph:

Syrians have had mixed reaction to the US strikes, with some hailing them as marking an end to Bashar al-Assad’s impunity while others believe it will achieve nothing.

“Assad made a monumental miscalculation this time,” Syrian-American aid worker Adham Sahloul told the Telegraph from the southern Turkish town of Gaziantep. “The US’s top 10 penis enlargement pills response at the moment has been a slap on the wrist, but one that could change the calculus in Syria. The regime might just change its mind next time it thinks of targeting civilians.”

He added: “Lots of pro-Obama or anti-war folks saying things like “this doesn’t change anything” and “Trump doesn’t care about Syrians”, as if we don’t know these things and are just stupid people looking for America to save us.

“It’s sort of like when a kid loses a game and ruins the game board for everyone and says “it’s just a stupid game” “I don’t even care”. I wouldn’t want to have been on the wrong side of history, either.”

For many this had been a long-time coming. Opposition supporters watched as President Assad’s regime gassed and killed more than 1,300 people in a Damascus suburb in 2013, an attack which crossed Barack Obama’s “red line”. But to their surprise, nothing happened.

Kassem Eid, an activist who was injured in the chemical weapons attack in Moadamiya, told the Telegraph: “I am going to name my son Donald, if I have one. This man is a hero. He has balls.”

“This will give people hope. It’s all about hope,” he said from Washington, where he now lives after fleeing Syria in 2014. “This is a game changer; it’s a new era that shows that America will actually do something. It shows there are real red lines in Syria.”

“Like Donald Trump says, ‘This is huge’.”

When Rex Tillerson, the secretary of state, said last week that the Syrian people should be left to decide whether to keep Assad, Mr Zakaria took that to mean that the US did not care.

“A few days later they translated this belief into action on the ground with chemical weapons,” he says. “It’s a weapon of terror and sent an obvious message inside and outside of Syria that the regime is still here. That it feels it can do anything.”

A survivor of the latest chemical attack in Idlib in northern Syrian town said he hopes the US missile attack could help put an end to Syrian government airstrikes, creating a safe area for civilians.
