With zero evidence backing him up, Trump Launched an Airstrike on Syria. Trump then issued a statement saying the strike was in the “vital national security interest” of the U.S.
Herre is his video address.
What a bunch of f***ing lies.
Trump Then and Now
1. Rebels, ISIS, or Saudis
2. US False Flag
3. Assad accidentally hit a chemical dump
4. Assad on purpose
I believe #4 is the least likely scenario. Regardless how one orders those, attacking Syria makes zero sense.
Trump was correct in 2013. And Tillerson had the correct viewpoint last week when he said Mr. Assad’s fate “will be decided by the Syrian people.”
Warmongering Continues, McCain, Hillary Happy
The Huffington Post, which seldom gets anything right, goth the story correct on February 14, 2017: Hillary Clinton and the Syrian Bloodbath.
Clinton’s role in Syria has been to help instigate and prolong the Syrian bloodbath, not to bring it to a close.
In 2012, Clinton was the obstacle, not the solution, to a ceasefire being negotiated by UN Special Envoy Kofi Annan. It was US intransigence – Clinton’s intransigence – that led to the failure of Annan’s peace efforts in the spring of 2012, a point well known among diplomats.
As every knowledgeable observer understands, the Syrian War is not mostly about Bashar al-Assad, or even about Syria itself. It is mostly a proxy war, about Iran. And the bloodbath is doubly tragic and misguided for that reason.
Saudi Arabia and Turkey, the leading Sunni powers in the Middle East, view Iran, the leading Shia power, as a regional rival for power and influence. Right-wing Israelis view Iran as an implacable foe that controls Hezbollah, a Shi’a militant group operating in Lebanon, a border state of Israel. Thus, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Israel have all clamored to remove Iran’s influence in Syria.
McCain Blames Obama
Yesterday, Senator McCain who is in favor of entering every war every time, and starting them where they don’t exist said ‘This Is a Legacy of Barack Obama’
Senator John McCain slammed former President Barack Obama in his discussion of the atrocities in Syria this week, telling Fox’s Martha MacCallum that “this is a legacy of Barack Obama.”
McCain said that he’s optimistic President Trump will take “concrete action” to respond to the chemical attack.
He praised the powerful remarks from Nikki Haley today at the United Nations and echoed them by saying, “Aren’t we growing a little tired of seeing… pictures of dead children?”
McCain, Graham Applaud Strikes
Yes Senator, we are f***ing tired of seeing pictures of dead children. And you personally are to blame.
But in reality, we should be seeing more pictures than we do. Where are all the pictures of kids the US killed with drones? Where are the pictures of the tens of thousands of people the US killed when we invaded Iraq.
Hillary Endorsed Strike Before It Happened
F**k all you warmongers!
This article just came my way: Jumping to conclusions; something is not adding up in Idlib chemical weapons attack.
All evidence suggests this is another false chemical attack allegation made against the government as seen in the Khan-al-Assal 2013 attack where the terrorist groups hoped that former President Obama’s “red-line” would be crossed leading to US-intervention in Syria against the government.
Most telling however, is that most recent report shows that the government does not deny striking Khan Sheikhun. Al-Masdar’s Yusha Yuseef was informed by the Syrian Army that the air force targeted a missile factory in Khan Sheikoun, using Russian-manufactured Su-22 fighter jet to carry out the attack. Most importantly, the Su-22’s bombs are unique and cannot be filled with any chemical substances, which is different than bombs dropped from attack helicopters. Yuseef was then told that the Syrian Air Force did not know there were any chemical substances inside the missile factory in Khan Sheikhoun. It remains to be known whether there actually were chemicals in the missile factory targeted by the airstrikes, or whether the terrorist forces used gas on the kidnapped civilians from the pro-government towns and brought them in the lorry trucks to the site of the airstrikes. Whether they were gassed by the militant forces, or the airstrikes caused a chemical weapon factory to explode, the gruesome deaths of children, seen foaming in the mouth because of the gas, lays in the hands of the terrorists.
There is much more in the article.
Turkish MP Eren Erdem has claimed materials to produce deadly sarin gas came from Turkey and arrived in Isis camps in Syria.
Illegal War Action
Senator Rand Paul has it correct:
“The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate,” Paul said. “Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer, and Syria will be no different.”
