We have seen all this before, its almost as if we are watching a rerun of a TV show with this latest strike on Syria. Last year in April we saw an alleged chemical attack in Syria with no proof of who the aggressor was and military missile strikes taking place. In 2017 President Trump sat down with the President of China and launched a counter attack without evidence of proof despite his harsh criticism of President Obama for his actions or lack there of in Syria. Even today in 2018 the Trump administration has said there is no evidence Syrian President Assad was behind the attack. Did President Trump forget his own words and the same action playing out only one year ago?
Its not likely, the President is not a stupid man. What has brought about this change, this desire to go against everything that he stated and ran against in the 2016 presidential election? So many questions need to be answered. Why has Trump taken actions against the interests of everything his past responses would indicate. Does the recent personnel change moving the war hawk John Bolton into the inner circle have anything to do with Trumps decisions? How much of this is deep state politics and influence vs Trumps own perceptions?
How does Assad bombing his own people during a surrender help him retain power? It doesn’t, the USA and other global interests have been trying to remove Assad from power like they have done with so many middle east leaders over the past 6 years. This is part of a larger agenda, on that started before 9/11.
This is such a confusing situation that we can speculate and guess at the motivations and reasons behind the latest military strikes but to what end. Is this the continuation of the PENAC and Bush agenda? Lets just hope the response from other nations is tamer than that of our leader and that we can prevent an international military conflict and the possible start of WWIII. Our nation is lost, the Trump base feeling betrayed. Is there any outcome which benefits the President in this situation?
General Mattis stated this is a one time strike to deter Assad from gassing his own people again. Will we see retaliation or will this be remembered the same as last years one time strike? The citizens are fed up with undeclared wars, military drone strikes which have killed thousands in the last decades. No matter who the leader is we seem to be on the same path toward global government, its just a matter of how we get there.
We need answers and if history is any indicator of the future we won’t have them. Regardless of the Presidents deciosn we must never stop fighting for what is right and for the truth to prevail.
