Globalists and Neocons Demand Syria War; Trump Considers Options
The New American ^ | 09 April 2018 | Alex Newman

Posted on 04/09/2018 7:57:38 PM PDT by WisconsinRep

As establishment neoconservatives, liberals, and globalists all demand deeper U.S. involvement in Syria's establishment-fueled civil war, much of President Donald Trump's base continues to advocate a total withdrawal of U.S. military forces from the region. Meanwhile, Trump said he is considering all options for how to deal with Syria after the reported chemical weapons attack. But first, the president suggested he wanted to know what happened in the highly suspicious attack, which came not long after Trump suggested that American troops in Syria would soon be coming home.

Previous chemical weapons attacks in Syria, after first being blamed on Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad, were later shown to be probable “false-flag” attacks staged by establishment-backed jihadist rebels. More than a few voices have suggested the latest reported attack may again be deception, including a former United Nations weapons inspector. Foreign powers warned just last month that false flags were being prepared in Syria to justify military intervention. But some especially unhinged voices in Congress and the Swamp have actually blamed the attack on Trump, citing his refusal to obey globalist commands to keep America permanently embroiled in illegal war.

So far, Trump's public comments since the attack have seesawed between open warmongering vowing to punish the “animal” Assad, to more circumspect remarks suggesting he wanted to find out what was really going on before making a decision. “I’d like to begin by condemning the heinous attack on innocent Syrians with banned chemical weapons,” Trump said at a cabinet meeting the morning of April 9. “It was an atrocious attack. It was horrible. You don’t see things like that. As bad as the news is around the world, you just don’t see those images.”

However, in contrast with some of his earlier comments on social media, Trump suggested that he wanted to know exactly what was going on before deciding what to do. “We are studying that situation extremely closely,” the president continued. “We are meeting with our military and everybody else, and we’ll be making some major decisions over the next 24 to 48 hours. We are very concerned when a thing like that can happen. This is about humanity. We’re talking about humanity. And it can’t be allowed to happen.”

Trump promised his administration would be “looking at that barbaric act” and “studying” what has been happening there. “We’re trying to get people in there,” he continued. “As you know, it’s been surrounded. So it’s very hard to get people in because not only has it been hit, it’s been surrounded.  And if they’re innocent, why aren’t they allowing people to go in and prove? Because as you know, they’re claiming they didn’t make the attack. So if it’s Russia, if it’s Syria, if it’s Iran, if it’s all of them together, we’ll figure it out and we’ll know the answers quite soon.”

A White House statement issued after Trump's conversation with globalist French President Emmanuel Macron, who backs officially designated communist terrorists in Syria, sounded even more confrontational. “Both leaders strongly condemned the horrific chemical weapons attacks in Syria and agreed that the Assad regime must be held accountable for its continued human rights abuses,” the joint statement said. “They agreed to exchange information on the nature of the attacks and coordinate a strong, joint response.”

More than a few voices, though, have suggested the attack was more likely a “false flag” attack similar to two others that were almost certainly perpetrated by establishment-backed jihadist “rebels.” The goal: Try to bring U.S. military might down on Assad. The Syrian dictator, who has protected Christians and other minorities from jihadists, is on the verge of total victory after a long and brutal civil war, fueled primarily by jihadist forces led by al Qaeda and supported by Western governments, Sunni Arab dictators, and the globalist establishment.

In fact, in an official 2012 document by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the U.S. government even admitted it was supporting the rebellion, that the uprising was led by al Qaeda, and that one of the goals was to create a “Salafist principality” in Eastern Syria. Today, that Salafist principality is better known as ISIS, or the Islamic State. There are no exemptions from federal terror laws for U.S. intelligence agencies or military departments that provide material support to designated terror organizations. And yet, nobody has been prosecuted so far despite smoking-gun evidence.    

Many of Trump's strongest supporters in the campaign have expressed shock and horror that Trump appears to be falling for the trap. Ann Coulter, who was a top Trump backer from the start, has filled social media with posts suggesting the chemical attack in Syria was a false flag, that Trump was betraying his supporters, and that swamp creatures were trying to mislead him into supporting perpetual U.S. military intervention in Syria and beyond. “How many Americans have been killed by Mexicans in the last 10 years vs. Americans killed by Syrians?” she asked rhetorically.  

Indeed, the circumstances are extremely suspicious. At the end of March, Trump announced that U.S. troops would be “coming out of Syria very soon.” “Let the other people take care of it now,” he added. Assad has all but crushed the globalist-backed jihad against his regime, too. In short, everything was going great for the Syrian dictator — all he had left to do was a mop-up operation, followed by rebuilding his war-torn nation.

Instead, the globalist establishment expects people to believe that Assad decided to throw it all away by using chemical weapons, essentially signing his own death warrant. In solving crimes, the old Latin expression “Cui bono” is among the first questions asked. In this case, obviously, Assad had everything to lose, and nothing to gain.    

Top foreign officials warned almost a month ago of an impending false flag attack using chemicals to be blamed on Assad. “According to our sources, new provocations are being prepared in Syria with the use of chemical weapons,” said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, whose government supports Syrian authorities. “There will be stagings... The attention of the international community will be attracted, using as always a tragic aspect, on the sufferings of civilians, innocent victims. This will be used as a pretext for the coalition to use force, especially against the Syrian capital.”

Experts in the field have also cast doubt on the narrative being peddled by the establishment's propaganda organs. “With great criticism from the international community, Assad and Russians bombard Ghouta bit by bit, and that they would add the opportunity to be criticized for using chemicals – it feels strange,” said former director of UN weapons inspections in Syria Ake Sellström, pointing to numerous “other explanations” for the attack. “They do not need it, their tactics are already successful.”

Speaking to Swedish media, Sellström noted that if the UN were to investigate the attack, it would be difficult to ascertain the truth. “We would have to meet people and doctors themselves and, in particular, need samples from the environment and poisoned persons,” he said, adding that recordings and testimony would not be enough and that chlorine exposure is tough to measure because it evaporates quickly and does not leave clear evidence in the body.

UN experts also disputed the narrative after a previous chemical attack was similarly blamed on Assad by the war-mongering globalist establishment. “This was use [of chemicals] on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities,” said Carla Del Ponte, the former attorney general of Switzerland and a member of the UN independent commission of inquiry on Syria, after UN investigators probed a previous attack. An MIT study also found that Obama used bogus "intelligence" to try to justify war.

Former U.S. diplomat Jim Jatras, who served as an advisor to the U.S. Senate GOP, said on social media that the “false flag worked like a charm,” adding that Trump was “dancing to their tune.” Jatras also noted that a strike on Syria ordered by Trump would be a “dream come true” for Democrats, the Deep State, the GOP establishment, the “mainstream” media, and more. “They get their agenda (endless war in the Middle East and permanent enmity with Russia) AND torpedo his #MAGA agenda,” Jatras concluded, urging Trump not to fall for it. “If Trump falls for it he's finished. If it unleashes WWIII maybe we're finished too.”

As if to confirm those suspicions, leading Deep State swamp creatures and establishment warmongers were foaming at the mouth demanding more war based on the dubious attack. “President Trump last week signaled to the world that the United States would prematurely withdraw from Syria,” fumed Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), a neocon globalist widely ridiculed by conservatives as a “Republican in Name Only” (RINO). “Assad and his Russian and Iranian backers have heard him, and emboldened by American inaction, Assad has reportedly launched another chemical attack against innocent men, women and children, this time in Douma.”

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), McCain's globalist neocon partner in crime, was also banging the war drums. “I think now [Assad] is a legitimate war criminal in the eyes of the international community,” Graham said on “Fox & Friends,” which has also been advocating war by trying to rile up and deceive conservatives. “And that Assad and his inner circle should be considered war criminals, legitimate military targets. If you have the opportunity to take him out, you should.”

Fox has gone into overdrive demanding more war. CNN, which Trump has properly identified as one of the worst purveyors of “fake news,” is also busy banging the war drums. No doubt Trump's new neoconservative National Security Advisor, John Bolton, a member of the globalist swamp known as the Council on Foreign Relations, is also demanding war. Trump's military advisors are reportedly calling for more war, too. So basically, Trump is surrounded by establishment swamp creatures who want war, while his embattled base, already stung by the "omnibus" fiasco, desperately calls on him to stick to his campaign promises.  

If Trump decides to illegally launch a war against Syria, it may well be the end of his presidency, according to many of his supporters. The globalist establishment demanding war will still hate him and do everything to crush him. But much of what remains of his base is likely to abandon him, leaving him totally alone to face the Deep State. When he launched a few missiles last year, practically all of his staunchest and most prominent supporters lashed out. Fortunately for Trump, leading members of Congress, including Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), have pointed out that the president has no authority to launch a war without permission from Congress, giving Trump a potential way out of the trap.

Americans and especially Trump supporters should make their voices heard. That is the only way to ensure that Trump does not make a mistake that would be disastrous to his presidency, what remains of the Christian population of Syria, the Constitution, and the United States. America cannot possibly be made great again as it drowns in debt and feeds its children to the war machine. If Trump truly believes in his campaign promises, he must resist the Deep State and its calls for war. And even if he does not, Congress must ensure that he does not drag America into another illegal war.

All the bad people want us to get into a war.

I’m pretty sure President Trump is too smart to fall for that.

I hope so. There is no reason for us to get into this war. Bush did an enormous amount of damage with his fiasco in Iraq. And we are still in South Korea! Will we be there forever?

During the 2016 campaign there were three issues where candidate Donald Trump set himself apart from the Democrat-Republican political establishment in a Washington: (1) fighting illegal immigration, (2) getting out of "free" trade deals, and (3) ending these stupid military campaigns all over the world that benefit foreign interests at the expense of the U.S.

I don't expect him to be perfect, but if Trump starts acting like a typical D.C. career political whore on any of these three, I predict his base will walk away from him.

I know I will.

Trump - Why stay in the war in Syria?

Advisors - Because we can't afford to allow Iran to gain influence in the region

Trump - What is the danger of Iran becoming more influential in the region?

Advisors- Because Iran will soon have nuclear weapons

Trump - Why are we letting Iran develop offensive nuclear weapons?

Advisors - Because they are following Barak Obama’s agreement and we must adhere to the agreement , even if Iran is cheating and rapidly developing offensive nuclear weapons .

Trump - Why are we letting Iran get away with cheating on the Obama nuclear weapons deal.

Advisors - Because we don't want Iran to develop nuclear weapons

This is what Trump has to deal with.

Trump will make or break himself politically with this decision. This country will not tolerate another false pretext war. Absolutely know that hell will break out here like you have never seen. the protests over Vietnam will,led by conservatives,ill look like school yard games. We got deceived in Iraq but NEVER AGAIN.
I cannot believe that Trump will not seek out and publically display any evidence of Syrian involvement. This bull crap that the “area is sealed off so we will never know” does not cut it when you are talking about war with 165 million Russians and 96 million Iranians. We must Trust that Trump will come to the right decision and GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE!! Wedont give a damned about SYRIA!!!

The Syrian rebels, heavily populated by ISIS terrorists, Muzzie Brotherhood types, and as cutthroat and bloodthirsty as their opponents the Assad’s gov’t, conveniently place their own stockpiles of chemical gases (which have been documented) right where it is guaranteed the Syrian gov’t forces will be bombing, thus setting off those chemical weapons without even knowing they have done so. A false flag.

Assad isn’t the only one willing to gas his own people. So are the heinous rebel forces who are very capable of bumping off their own, especially when they are about to lose their last stronghold to the gov’t forces. So just like last year, about the same date in fact, the rebels pull out the old canard of Assad gassing his own people, and it’s a big lie that the western world seems to love to swallow. What fools we are. The Pub neocons and venal Dems want to drive us to war with Russia and thus destroy any possibility of detente with one of our biggest rivals on this globe. And all because they hate Trump.

When Assad is about to win the war without using poison gases, that is when he chooses to use them? Are you kidding? When Trump has just stated he is thinking of pulling our troops out of Syria, that is when Assad uses chemical warfare, which will guarantee that Trump will change his mind and not pull out? This helps Assad in the civil war how? And saying that Putin should not have any influence in Syria while we should, when Russia has had strong influence in Syria for decades, and Syria lies on her border. Is Syria located on our border?

We would be much better off tending to our own border problems now, and the invasion into our country by hordes of illegal immigrants most of whom are not vetted at all (and from all countries, not just Mexico and South America) that occurs daily. We did our duty and virtually wiped out ISIS in the Middle East; now lets tend to our own backyard before we end up with a country immersed in our own Civil War, just like the Syrians. Different reasons, same result.

I have it on good authority of a NeverTrumper freeper that if you are not on board with the NeverTrumpers, like McCain, Graham and Rubio, in their desire to arm jihadists and overthrow Assad you are a Putinista and a friend of the mullahs.

Just like if you want the borders secured you must be a racist xenophobe.

America is fully aware of what the Syrians, Iranians, Russians and North Koreans are up to. It’s pretty much impossible to obfuscate that enough to get competent Americans to support the enemy. Might get a few criminals and retards to believe that stuff, though.

Then there is the conversation AFTER the advisors have been given truth serum:

Trump: "What is the danger of Iran becoming more influential in the region?"

Advisors: "Because the Iranians are Shi'ites, and the U.S. government has been infiltrated by Sunni agents like the Bush family, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, and the Clintons for years."
