First off: As you can see, I has a star again!
A lovely person who was supposed to be anonymous, but I found out who they were because the site is broken, gave me a shimmery gift.
I thank thee kind not-at-all-anonymous community member for your act of kindness!
Now onto the Syria.
Trump sent a clear message. Frankly, I approve, as intense as it may be. I don't think I've ever hidden my, um, distaste for Obama's foreign policy. It was shit. Absolute shit. So when Trump said he'd do something, he did it. I applaud those efforts. Basically the warning was "hey, we're gonna blow up your shit, get outta the way please."
Everyone's seen the picture by now, right? The dad holding his dead twins. I mean, it's those kind of images that no matter what kind of person who are, your heart has to hurt.
US's involvement in the middle east has always been, well, hazy, but I do believe this kind of action was necessary.
Now will Russia push back? It'll be interesting to see what happens.
I tend to listen to my Arabic music playlist when these sort of events happen. (I love me some Nancy Ajram haha!) No matter what, I connect through music.
I found this beautiful song here born from Syrian suffering it seems. Trying to find some translation (winky wink @madmanmoe) though I know it's about being alive still...? At the very least there's hope breathing in those melodies.
In other news: Stockholm terror attack.
This, once again, is getting outta hand.
I bring back this picture for reference to my feelings:
Fuck you terrorists.
