Re: Letter, April 15, “Thank you, President Trump”

I am not sure if the author of the letter follows the news about Syria closely, but if I remember correctly President Obama is responsible for an air strike against rebels of ISIS in Syria about four years ago. At that time Mr. Trump held the strong opinion that we should avoid at any price any military action in the Syrian conflict and warned President Obama to stay out of Syria.

Today, you thank President Trump for an air strike in Syria, which was a symbolically important surgical operation not hurting the Syrian president Assad in a serious way. Both actions are related to the office, so in my opinion you should express your thanks to the president of the U.S. only. Call it ISIS, name it Baschar Hafiz al-Assad – both of them are evil empires.
