On the Same Day Bannon Removed From NSC, Trump Sabre Rattles War with Syria

This isn’t what I signed up for. If it’s Trump’s intention to continue the neocon policies that have left this country indebted to its eyeballs fighting meaningless wars, costing the lives of America’s bravest, count me out.

Bannon’s removal at the NSC on the same day that Trump upped his rhetoric for war with Assad isn’t a coincidence. Bannon has been an anti war advocate and wanted America out of the Middle East. Now here we are, being led down a ruinous road by 35 year old Jared Kushner and Trump’s generals, positioning for conflict in Syria over a chemical weapons attack.

In regard to the chemical attack that has left dozens dead, many of whom were children, no one knows with certainty who was responsible. There is so much fuckery going on there, you’ll drive yourself mad trying to figure it out.

Then there’s this.


Here is President Trump’s response.

Thus far, we have a President pursuing conflict escalations in both N. Korea and Syria. Everyone wants to be Churchill. We get to feel the brunt, however.

    If Trump wants to be Churchill, who wants to be Hitler? Putin is a stand-in for Stalin-lite (No mass purges and starving peasants).

      Ever hear of a false flag?

      I’m not insinuating necessarily… Kind of not surprising that geopolitical events would be ratcheted up however… On the trump? No?…

        Eyewitnesses saw Russian&Syria planes overhead? Yeah whatever in the middle of the night in the middle of a chemical attack. These brilliant eyewitnesses.

    Elsewhere today I politely mentioned that Kushner is staunch zionist and doesn’t give a cunt’s hair about his goy father in law Trump for as long as he can use his position and status to advance Israel’s interests. And for that reason we get this: “… being led down a ruinous road by 35 year old Jared Kushner and Trump’s generals, ..”

      Politely my ass. You poison the argument by stating the case against neocons and expansionist Israelis and their tools in our government by making statements that go after a whole ethnicity as opposed to going after policies that are odious.

        Policies don’t make themselves. Policies are made by individuals with agenda, zionist agenda that is. Zionism is all about Israel, not America. If we get rid of those that make, or spur, odious policies, then we don’t have to deal with their odious policies. Accurate labels are good. They help with quick house cleaning.

    Fly…you are the only one in the world besides Putin who doesn’t know who threw Sarin bombs. Assad did it before so why wouldn’t he do it again? Just a coincidence he did it after Trump said he would stay away from the conflict? Jeez.. you can’t be that blind.

      Assad was winning when that sarin attack was launched. It made no sense for him to have done something so provocative at that time. You would do well to question all news – especially out of that region. Neocons here and in Israel have been trying to get us to go to war with several countries, including Syria, since the late 90s. This is well documented.

        The bombs were launched by plane.. so either it was Assad or the Russians.. No reason to go to full war. Just send a couple cruise missiles at one of Assad’s palaces. If an army thinks it can get away with a chemical attack then you have no idea of the terror that will follow. Obama fucked up big time by not following up on his red line threat.

        There was no sarin attack launched. An ISIS warehouse (in the hands of ISIS) storing sarin was bombed. ISIS was documented using toxins illegally in Iraq. It was theirs.

      How the fuck do you know Assad launched a chemical attack. Look at the anti Assad reporter tweeting two days ago of a chem attack and ISIS controlled areas being given gas masks several days before attack. Go ahead, I embedded it in this post.

      Give me a fucking break already with your war mongering. Remove me from your propaganda distribution list. I don’t want my son being sent over there for neocon policies.

      Fuck off.

      You stupid motherfucker. Didn’t you read the tweets? It’s a gulf of Tonkin setup. Dewey defeats Truman? The house of Saud and Mossad want Assad gone. Then they can run the pipeline through the Ottoman Empire into Europe, effectively fucking over Gazprom. It seems everyone has forgotten about the Iranians while we’re fucking around with little Kim. The Iranians are having kittens waiting to attack the Sauds. Do you have any fucking idea what they will unleash when that happens? Chemical agents that will make you pray for a quick death. The Chinese will be glad to help out by attacking Taiwan.

      We’re standing on the precipice of WW3 and it’s still shit politics with you. Fuck off nicely.

          I agree with Derp. They’ve been trying to displace Assad for years. The whole Russian agitprop surrounds this Syrian narrative. Before Russia, Obama had done very little to stop ISIS. I do not believe for a second that Assad is responsible for gas attacks. He is winning. Use your brain.

            Exactly.

            A few facts…and maybe some applicable logic.

            *All middle east wars are about oil or religion.

            *Trump is on record as having a hands off attitude toward Syria.

            *Assad has virtually no reason to gas civilians. He is holding nearly all the cards at this point.

            ??Who hasn’t been mentioned in this conversation yet? Answer…Iran.

            What motive would Iran have in drawing the US into a Syrian war? None. There is nothing to gain for them. They like the way it is shaping up.

            Whose purpose would be served if the US was drawn into war? And what would that purpose be? Answers…
            House of Saud and friends.

        It makes it a lot easier to run the pipeline from Syria through the Ottoman Empire into Europe if you depopulate Syria by shipping Syrian rapefugees (fighting age males) to Europe in general and Germany in particular. Has anyone noticed that Israel or Saudis are not taking any rapefugees?

        Trump said he would leave Assad alone.. Assad was testing him with the chemical bomb. You’re expecting a guy who has killed hundreds of thousands of his own people to act responsibly. Really?

          For years now, he’s been shallacked, and saying he hopes the international community can end the strife and military occupation of syria. Why would he solely invite ire from the international community, at least so overtly and not at least show some effort covertly, in such a massively self-defeating way.

          Assad is not stupid, has a medical degree, studied opthamology postgrad

    Witnesses say the bombs can from a plane. Does that help narrow it down?

    I don’t want anyone’s son fighting in any war. But using chemical weapons must be punished.

      Let’s assume you are 100% right. How the fuck is it our business to fight a war in Syria? I couldn’t care if wholesale genocide was taking place. Not my issue.
