BREAKING: France Convinced Trump to ‘Stay in Syria’ Long Term

Well, well, well — what do we have here. It was less than a fortnight ago when Trump decided to completely pull out of Syria — a war which has been fought by us, by proxy, for the better part of the past 7 years — losing miserably. The net result of our meddling has been 500,000 dead, millions displaced. But the recent chemical attack that took the lives of ~40 women and children were of course too much to bear.

Now we must stay in Syria, ‘long term’, because we’re a moral kind hearted people, who offer lovely stealth missiles or drilling contracts by our mega-corporations.

In other news, Russia punk’d out again and warned of global chaos if we hit Syria again.

I suspect this will be boolish for markets, Trump’s WW3 victory and all. We should expect a similar reaction after the previous great wars.

Professor Sachs of Columbia best described the US-Syrian mistake best: get out.

    When was the last time France was relevant? 1778?

    Who was on here decrying, or downplaying, my revulsion of Le Pen not getting in over the globalist order stooge boy. You think this would have happened if Le Pen had either made it or not been probably rigged against? fuckheads

    France could have continued the clogging of the kleptocracy. Following brexit. Following trump. Now you know i was right again

    Geopolitics.

    North Korean talks coming. Syria sets the stage.

    Turkey, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iraq all concerned about Syria/Iran.

    Now that Isis is done, Russia just wants their Mediterranean base. Couldn’t care less about Assad. Has NATO agreed, provided Russia stands aside?

    If I were Assad, I’d be looking for an exit strategy, just like Lil Kim.

      It might be good if Assad leaves, and the new Syrian government gives Russia Mediterranean port access. That does seem to be what Russia wants. And most people in Syria wants Assad gone, because it’s he who is slaughtering hundreds of thousands and displacing many millions of Syrians. It’s not the U.S. doing that, as Fly’s Russian media claims. Russian media has a mission to support Assad, as long as they think Assad is Russia’s only ticket to Mediterranean port access.

      Don’t worry, Fly. Your pro-Russian media will be fine with Assad gone, as long as Russia gets its Mediterranean port from Syria’s new non-violent government.

        you really are too stupid for words and even stupider to show off such utter ignorance of the facts

        you should pay more attention to the Putin-Wikileaks version

        I’m sure you have no interest in the underlying facts of the situation and that you’d rather live in your MSM propaganda fantasy version but just in case you’re interested in getting a clue before you open you embarrassment of a pie-hole, entertain yourself with these

          Give up on that one. What he’ll imagine he read and what you wrote will have no relation to one another.

            Frog has a grand imagination into cartoon land. I like it. Good to see frog back and going strong as ever, never evolving one iota from losing in every disastrous way imaginable.

          You go ahead and take the Putin and wikileaks side in everything, Juice. We all know whose side you’re on and it’s not the U.S.

          Why wouldn’t the U.S. pursue regime change in Syria?Assad butchers his own people and floods the world with millions upon millions of refugees. He’s making plenty of problems for the world.

          I’m not fond of wars, but if you are going to have one, it should be with a leader who not only is destroying his own country but the entire world by flooding it with more refugees than it can possibly accommodate.

          Always nice to be called stupid by a mentally retarded person like Juice whose IQ is obviously 1/10 of mine, as all he knows how to do is cut and paste pro-Russian propaganda.

    I like the good Professor but it’s a paradigm shift without crisis to drive it politically. Pull out means loss of a ME chunk of influence which would be handed to Russia on a silver platter. And the decline of US influence will be speeded up affecting Europe directly and soon. Tough call.
