Fallout from Trump's Syria strike rolls in; allies cheer, foes threaten retaliation

Reactions have flooded in from across the world after President Donald Trump broke with Barack Obama's policy of nonintervention in Syria last week, launching 50 tomahawk missiles against a government-held airfield in response to a deadly nerve gas attack against Syrian citizens evidently carried out by Bashar al-Assad's government.

The majority of American citizens and politicians backed the move, along with America's European allies. Predictably, China, Iran, and Russia opposed the strike, with the latter two countries issuing a joint a statement pledging to "respond with force" to continued U.S. strikes. Iran went further, calling for Syria to "give a response that makes Americans regret their attack."

Meanwhile, in an appearance on ABC News over the weekend, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson implied that he believed Russia to be guilty of interfering in U.S. and European elections, marking a continued evolution of the Trump team's views on Russian hacking. Over the course of his presidential campaign and the early days of his presidency, Trump moved from expressing doubt Russia was involved in election hacks to conceding Russia attempted to interfere in the election while disavowing that these efforts had any impact on the race's outcome.

Monday on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn reflected on these developments and the mounting tension between Russia and Trump. As Glenn pointed out, Trump's willingness to anger Russian President Vladimir Putin has silenced domestic chatter about possible collusion between the two world leaders.

"Can I just ask a question: Is there anybody talking about the collusion with Russia anymore? Have you noticed that that just sort of went back?" Glenn asked.

"That doesn't seem to be an issue anymore," Pat Gray responded.
