The Trump Stunt

The Trump Stunt

Hoping to convince us that he is not a Putin puppet, and that he can do something “presidential”, Trump fires several million dollars worth of missiles at a Syrian airbase.

He claimed to have sympathy for the same Syrian civilians that he banned as refugees.

Trump, of course, has no sympathy for anyone but himself and his low approval ratings, which the strike was intended to improve. If it does, among those who still think we should effect a regime change in Syria, it will probably be temporary. A symbolic ejaculation of explosive armament will have little effect but to annoy Putin and delight ISIS and their co-rebels, who are the likely culprits in the chemical attack.

Those who have bought the regime-change narrative all along are sticking with it and once again blaming Assad for the chemicals, despite the fact that it would have been illogical and counterproductive for him to have used them, but completely in character for the ruthless rebels to pull off another false-flag event.

Nevertheless, actually ousting Assad would be insane as long as ISIS and the other extremists are still a threat, and as long as Russia is still helping its ally to defeat them. That isn’t to say that Trump will act sanely.

Is Assad actually evil, or has be been doing what he must to prevent the greater evil from overtaking his country? We might recall that defeating our own rebels brought a huge death toll in the 1860’s, yet Lincoln could not have preserved the union otherwise.

By defying Russian interests symbolically, Trump has not proved he is innocent of collusion with Putin. The Syrian issue is not what that was about. Ending or reducing the sanctions is Putin’s goal, and of interest to Exxon-Mobil, which would like to develop a Russian oil field. There may be other money interests involved.

Senior White House officials are admitting that the missile strike against Syria was not part of a broader strategy or part of an effort to remove Assad. In other words, the missile strike was a meaningless slap on the wrist that was intended to make Trump look strong.”

Jim Acosta of CNN reported: Senior administration official: Strike should not be interpreted as beginning of wider campaign to weaken or remove Assad.”

What we have to worry about next is Trump attempting to look tough against North Korea. That can be many times more hazardous.

    I'm not in favor of making an enemy of either Russia or China (or any other country).  The Trump/Putin issue is not about international relations.  It's about the money.

      Don't forget that Hillary and her cronies were right in there; remember the Russian reset where technology was handed over and then the uranium deal?  It is always about money.  Throw Obama into the mix as well, his part was helping to push through the bad trade deals like PPP that would place everything into a world court.

      I keep coming back to Libya but Libya is an important example.  Gaddafi was an evil "dictator killing his own people" if you listened to Clinton and Obama.  Yet, this evil dictator took the wealth from the nation's oil and gave it back to the people.  Hell, the USA does not do that, they take the wealth of the nation's oil and give it to the oil corporations (every drop of oil out of the gulf belong to the citizens).  Gaddafi gave food subsidies, fuel subsidies, rent subsidies, housing, education at universities, health care (and not just worthless insurance but real health care), etc.  Who is the real evil here?  I would say the USA that bombed the hell out of Libya; an illegal war and both Clinton and Obama are war criminals; they have blood on their hands that can never be washed away.

    I enjoy the fact that the russia connection and collusion myth is still working its way down the chain of the hillary faithful, so far to date, its been revealed that susan rice and her subordinate and several people who have less security clearance than susan rice have seen conversations between Russian officials trump and his election team and trumps transition team and nominees.  The facts have been revealed that susan rice was instrumental in the unmasking of american citizens without cause.

    prior to trump, obama kept his knee pads ready to service putin, xi, and iran's leaders. 

    CNN,MSNBC,ABC,CBS, and washington times and huffpo all ignored the facts

    when the sarian gas is released, a portion of the gas rises up and falls in the direction the rocket was launched from, with today's satellites can trace from where the jets had taken off from to launch the attack. with the satellites can trace backwards from the jets flight path to its origin.

    I am not a proponent of what President Trump did but its far more significant than what obama, michelle and hillary did when the islamic rebels kidnapped all the teen age girls, all that trio did was tweet #hashtag return the girls, please return the girls.  come on what limp wristed spineless president pleads for the release using hashtags...oh wait its obama......LaughingLaughing

    The increase in troops in Syria and the airstrike does not surprise me.  Trump has his head up Israel's arse.  Remember that Syria must fall in order to take out Iran.  This has been in the plans for some time and the world be damn.  Look what Hillary Clinton; and Obama, did to Libya.  If Russia had stepped in and prevented the No Fly Zone in Libya, Libay would not be the destroyed hell hole it is today. The US created and armed the "rebels" in Libya; Clinton was running arms to them and this is fact.

    North Korea would be a mistake; some think that the North Korean military is too weak and outdated to be effective in a war.  What they don't realise is that North Koreans hate the USA with a passion; the USA is responsible for mass starvation in North Korea and they will fight the US until the last man is standing if they have to do it with clubs.  The USA is the world's largest terrorist organisation and it is not going to change under Trump.

    Climate Change taking out humans will probably be the best thing that has ever happened; I would hate to think that humans would ever get out into the cosmos to commit their atrocities against other worlds.
