It looks like Trump will plunge us into war, either in Iran or Syria, and possibly both with the truly frightening prospect of Russia and the US going up against each other.
You have to feel a little sorry for the folks who voted for Trump expecting him to live up to his promise to bring the troops home and stop killing people.
I’ve said this for years. The neocon strategy in the Middle East is total, unrelenting war and mass murder, not the delivery of “democracy,” but rather to destabilize and remake nations into compliant client states approved of by Israel.
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov says the UK is plotting a chemical attack in Syria to be blamed on Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian Arab Army. He said this will be used as a pretext for a direct attack on the Syrian government by the United States.
No, John Bolton hasn’t gone away.
He was back today with a message for Bashar al-Assad and Syria.
Thanks to Brandon Turbeville for connecting the dots on the US-Israel-Saudi plan to take down Bashar al-Assad and Syria. Turbeville reminds us of an article published by TIME in 2006.
TIME revealed a leaked two-page document circulating amongst key figures in the Bush administration that openly stated that the U.S. was “supporting regular meetings of internal and diaspora Syrian activists” in Europe. The document made no bones about expressing hope that “these meetings will facilitate a more coherent strategy and plan of actions for all anti-Assad activists.”
It was a fool’s errand.
On the day Donald Trump was elected his supporters asked him to pardon the founder and frontman of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange. They flooded social media demanding Assange be allowed to leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London without arrest and extradition to the United States.
Stone silence from Trump and his administration.
