(Before It's News) / April 11, 2017

Justin’s note: “Trump did something. Obama went on the apology tour. It’s nice to have a president who does something.”

I overheard these words while working out at my local gym on Friday. It was part of a conversation between two middle-aged men.

At first, I didn’t know what they were talking about. But it quickly became obvious that they were talking about the US attack on Syria last week. By the sound of it, they supported President Trump’s decision.

“How can anyone condemn the United States? Innocent people are being gassed. It’s like concentration camps in Germany.”

For those out of the loop, the US military launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at Syria as retaliation for a chemical attack that killed at least 70 people, including children.

Some people, like the two men at my gym, think this barbaric attack absolutely warrants retaliation. Other people, like myself, think the US government should mind its own business, since these affairs often turn into costly, never-ending conflicts.

That said, this is a highly complex situation. I don’t claim to have all the answers.

But if there’s anyone who understands this situation, it’s Casey Research founder Doug Casey.

That’s why I called Doug less than 24 hours after the news broke. I had to hear his take on this matter.

Below is the transcript of our conversation. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Justin: Doug, the US just launched a major attack on Syria.

Are you surprised Trump did this? Keep in mind, he publicly criticized Obama for wanting to attack Syria in 2013. He also said that the President should get approval from Congress before attacking Syria. He didn’t do that, either.
