‘MISSION ACCOMPLISHED’: Here’s what the Syrian airstrikes actually accomplished

The United States, France and Britain launched airstrikes Friday night on three Syrian chemical weapons facilities in response to the chemical attack on civilians in Douma allegedly been carried out by President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday: “A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!”

But the turmoil Syria is far from over. Literally within hours of the strike, Syrians loyal to Assad were openly celebrating their president’s triumph (he was, after all, still the president) and by Sunday Assad’s forces had resumed their attacks on civilians — this time with conventional weapons instead of chemical.

Freedom is contagious and there is a captive audience of millions upon millions in Russia and China

Meanwhile Russia, which has insisted all along that there was never any attack in Douma and accused the West of “staging” the horrific event, have “warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.”

China’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying also condemned the airstrikes, saying, “Any unilateral military action bypassing the [United Nations] … violates the principles of international law and the basic norms governing international relations, and will further complicate the Syrian issue.”

We oppose the use of force in international relations and call for respect for other countries’ sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity. Any unilateral military action bypassing the [United Nations] Security Council runs contrary to the purpose and principles of the UN Charter and violates the principles of international law and the basic norms governing international relations, and will further complicate the Syrian issue.

China urges the relevant parties to return to the framework of international law and resolve the issue through dialogue and negotiation.

So exactly what is America’s ‘mission’ when it come to Syria?

On today’s show, Glenn Beck breaks down the key developments of the crisis in Syria, and explains why China and Russia are so concerned about the outcome of Assad’s ruthless regime.

“Syria is important because of the symbol it represents to the world’s leading powers,” explained Glenn. “Countries like Russia and China want the world, especially their own people, to see that authoritarian governments are legitimate and here to stay. If mass public uprisings can spring up, gain international backing, and topple the Syrian regime, what’s to stop that idea from happening in Moscow? Beijing? Iran? Freedom is contagious and there is a captive audience of millions upon millions in Russia and China paying attention.”

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…


Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."


How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.


Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
