RUSSIA, IRAN WINNERS FROM WEAK, SYMBOLIC, EMPTY US STRIKE ON SYRIA

The recent US strike on Syria was a symbolic, inconsequential action that again demonstrated President Trump’s willingness to pull the trigger. Russia and Iran retain…

General Jack Keane is among those who claims to believe that Assad actually did deliberately attack his own people with chemical weapons in Douma and that simply sending another message that the US is unhappy with him wasn’t enough. He describes the strikes on Syria as “very weak.” That’s to be expected.

Keane says that our response, in view of the fact that we already sent a message last year, “should have been decisive, it should have been consequential.” He says, “As a result of this strike, we still leave them with multiple chemical storage sites and production capabilities. We didn’t put a single glove on an airplane or a delivery system or an airfield.”

Keane says, “Assad made this calculation. He’s trying to secure Damascus. He’s been fighting for it for months. The Russians have been bombing every single day.” Even with round-the-clock bombing the rebel forces were still holding out so Assad made a calculated decision to use chemical weapons, knowing that the US might strike in retaliation.” Six hours later the rebels were eliminated.

But wasn’t this strike supposedly a response to Assad “the monster” gassing his own people? What Keane describes is Assad gassing rebel terrorists attempting to overthrow his country, jihadis that he had not been able to eliminate through conventional means.

If Russians were unsuccessful despite dropping bombs 24 hours a day and six hours after the chemical attack rebels were defeated and the bombing, it seems the use of chemical weapons could have saved lives, if in fact it occurred at all. The logic is similar to that the US used after we used nuclear weapons on Japan to end World War II.

Keane exposes himself as being among those throughout DC who seem to want war with Russia, saying dismissively that the United States didn’t take out all of Assad’s military capability because the US is “intimidated by a second rate power who’s trying to pretend to be a superpower, called the Russians. And they have put their stooges at those military bases and we’re afraid to do harm to them.” Keane adds, “We’ve got people advising the President who are far too risk averse, to be quite frank about it.”

So if the US followed General Keane’s advice and destroyed the military capabilities of the Syrian government, would that not invite the rebels to reconstitute themselves in an effort to take advantage of their now weakened opponent? Doesn’t the United States want Syria to be able to defend themselves from radical Islamists? Perhaps not, particularly when they are the radical Islamists we’re giving weapons and money to.

But Russia, Syria, Iran, and the US seem content to let the dust settle with the demonstration that President Trump will act when a red line is crossed, as inconsequential as that line, the response or the original offense might be. It was something that he had to do to make a statement to the world, again. 

Keane says, “Putin has scored a major victory here, he and the Iranians. They have propped up the Assad regime indefinitely.” He says, “They own Syria, they’ve got a victory here. And the thought that Putin would start shooting at us over our reaction to a chemical attack in Syria, which would get the United States more involved in Syria, that’s ridiculous. He’s not going to shoot at us.”

He adds, “He doesn’t want us involved. We’re already advertising that we’re leaving and they’re cheering. And we’re firing a few shots as we’re going out the door.”

This is another mess left by commie globalist Obama. His failure to rebuff Russia’s increased presence in 2015 and his empowerment by love affair of the Iranians has put the United States in a difficult position. It seems clear that nobody is really concerned with chemical weapons being used on civilians outside of, perhaps, President Trump and his daughter. The offense is repeated in various forms countless times every day around the globe. Why is Syria a recipient of two US responses?

The terrorists have been cleared out. There is always collateral damage in war and there is still suspicion that this was a false flag conducted by the “white helmet” terrorists, not Assad. What is clear is that Keane and others in the Military Industrial Complex believe the solution to this situation is a full scale attack on Syria that would put us in the position of being further embroiled in the conflict and staring down the Russians and Iranians in a standoff, at best or actual fighting.

President Trump doesn’t want a war in Syria  but he felt he had to send a message to demonstrate that he’s not a chump like Obama. That message was sent and it changed nothing. Assad is still in power, we’ve defeated ISIS, and Russia and Iran, thanks to Obama, are the ones reaping the rewards.

  1. I think President Trump has to bring all our troops home, we certainly need them here. With the Deep State and our Shadow government you can not trust anyone there. All the false flags and cover-ups at so many levels we must clean up our country. I think our founding fathers had it right, “beware of foreign entanglements”. We can not be the policemen of the world, we dont know what really goes on in the world, and can not trust what happens because of the shadow government in our own country. If anything the election of President Trump has confirmed many things we may have been aware of but now have confirmation and knowledge of how bad it really is. These Global communists are all over the world attempting to destroy and take over. The truly sad part of this is they are using us (our money, US resources) to accomplish their objectives. President Trump should declare Martial Law by state and start cleaning up America. This is legal and the most effective and efficient way to handle. Start arresting traitors(Politicans, Judges etc who took an oath of office and disobeyed that oath. Start arresting criminals drug lords, human traffickers and deporting illegals. If anyone has a better way of addressing all the problems our government has created for the American people lets hear it!!

  2. I am getting disgusted with the inability of people to pay attention while their country is being attempted to be taken down by what is called the Deep State. The first ‘gas attack’ in Syria several years ago turned out to be a false flag op mounted by the rebel forces. Apparently that news didn’t get out past the Independent Media, so TPTB went to their bag of tricks again. And again, the second such a story, last year, also turned out to be a false flag op, sold to the American public – by the MSM – and the rest of the West for the same purpose: to attempt to get the U.S. mad enough to take out the duly elected Assad government (NOT ‘regime’). After all that, we should really be more careful about assigning blame in these sorts of things, until an in-depth investigation into them has been mounted. Not engage in knee-jerk reaction.

    And it would also pay to stop the CIA from funding those ‘rebel’ (read, more accurately: mercenary) forces, in the strategy that Gen. Wesley Clark outed some years ago, whereby it turns out that the Deep State forces have plans to take out 7 Middle Eastern countries, with Syria and Iran left on their planning board. Come ON, Pres. Trump. Stop being a dupe to said Deep State. Drain the hell out of that swamp. That’s what you were elected to do. Not play war games any longer. Or you will go down in history as an easily played stooge. Not the man who Made America Great Again.

  3. If I remember correctly, Keane works for the “Institute for war”, or something like that. It will interesting to see if they want a full-scale WWIII or will settle for multiple warmongering. I sure wonder if the huge Omnibus will be sold as “see we needed all the money”.

    Maybe we should have several Presidents. Rand Paul President of War. Dave Bratt President of the economy, Ron Paul President of Monetary Policy, etc.

  4. well.
    i have my doubts about this strike anyway? i mean WHAT WERE WE TRYING TO PROVE?
