The American public — even the strongest supporters of Donald Trump — is outraged that Trump of America, and Macron of France, and May of UK, intend a military invasion of Syria, in order to ‘punish Assad for’ a chemical attack that he might not even have done, and which might not even have happened at all as the invaders allege it to have happened.
Risking nuclear war against Russia, Syria’s ally, on such flimsy basis, is considered, it seems, treasonous, even by Trump’s voting-base.
For example, the Breitbart news-site is associated with Trump’s campaign since the very start of Trump’s efforts to win the U.S. Presidency, and its articles typically receive thousands or even tens of thousands of reader-comments. One of its lead stories on April 11th was “May Readies UK for Syria Strikes, Defies Strong Public Opposition” and it reports the polled two-to-one opposition by Brits against Prime Minister May’s decision to join the U.S. invasion; and if one clicks “Sort by Best” the top reader-comment — the one that received the highest net number of up-votes — is:

My MP, incidently, is a Tory.
