Charlie Pierce Is Capable of Greatness

His piece from yesterday about Trump's smoke screen* attack on a Syrian airbase Friday, Washington Is Void of Any Sense of Restraint, and the politics of authorizing war is certainly one of the five most important things I've read this year, perhaps this decade. 

If you don't have the time to wade through my piece below, Charles Pierce's piece is more important and much shorter. 

* Is it true that they warned the Assad regime so they could remove anything they didn't want to get blown to smithereens?   I can point out that in 2013, Trump and other Republican-fascist-racists were accusing Barack Obama of going to have been guilty of doing exactly what it is so obvious that Trump did.  I still wonder if it might not have been set up by Putin, getting one of his lesser assets, Assad, to provide his major asset, Trump, with a way to deflect attention from the treason of Trump and his regime with the Russian oligarchs.
