Commentator Ann Coulter blasted President Donald Trump's "Syrian misadventure," saying it "violates every promise he ran on" – and begging: "We want the president of America back, not the president of the world."
In an opinion piece for the Daily Caller, the acerbic pundit noted that "war is like crack for presidents," but warned the missile strike at Syria after it unleashed a chemical bomb on its own people is exactly the wrong response.
"[T]rump’s Syrian misadventure is immoral, violates every promise he ran on and could sink his presidency," she wrote.
Coulter argued that Trump "left to his own devices, uncontaminated by Washington group-think, Trump gets it right," like he did in 2013 in opposing engagement in Syria.
"As awful as it was to see those dead children, Trump knew that America’s first duty is to our own children," she wrote. "We have never succeeded at turning a Third World dictatorship into a paradise. The history of these things is that removing a Middle Eastern strongman always makes things worse — for example, in Iran, Iraq, Libya and Egypt."
"We leap in, thinking we’re helping the poor devils under the thumb of a dictator — and then the new tribe takes over and oppresses everyone else, usually much more brutally, while hating us even more than the old tribe did."
She also refuted liberals' praise of the missile strike, saying the only message it sent was: "The Washington establishment is determined to manipulate the president into launching counterproductive military strikes," she wrote.
"Our enemies — both foreign and domestic — would be delighted to see our broken country further weaken itself with pointless wars."
