From the RT article: US President Donald Trump with Emir of Kuwait Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah in the East Room of the White House in Washington, US, September 7, 2017 © Jonathan Ernst / Reuters
Some time ago I read the following article on RT about Donald Trump. During a meeting with the emir of Kuwait, Trump said, among other things, the following:
“We would be extremely upset if Assad used chemical weapons” said Trump at a joint conference with Sheikh Sabah IV Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah in Washington DC. However, “we have very little to do with Syria, apart from killing ISIS,” he added”.
Another bizarre pronunciation by ‘our’ Donald. I could’t resist to throw in the following Tweet.
I Tweeted “You’re full of shit @realDonaldTrump, I’ll explain later“. So here’s my explanation (Dutch version here). But first this:
When Trump stepped up and won the elections, I was quite excited about him. He seemed to oppose the, in my view, criminal geo-political policy of his predecessors Obama and Bush and his opponent Hillary Clinton. The remarkable promise Trump made during his inaugural speech sounded promising. I began to believe in better relations between the West and Russia and the end of the war in Syria. However, that proved to be short-lived. Not even a month after Trump’s inauguration, I had my first doubt. It was about the statements made by Nikki Haley (United States ambassador to the United Nations) about sanctions against Russia because of the occupation (liberation) of Crimea and the misery in Eastern Ukraine. Misery the Americans, in cooperation with the EU, caused (read the backgrounds here). I assume that Nikki Haley spoke on behalf of Trump and his government.
Recently, relations between the US and the EU and, on the other hand, Russia have not improved. And as usual that’s not the intention of the Americans (the Neocons) at all (more on that later). In addition to Ukraine, Syria is also a US-created mess (as it has done with Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, among others). Another reason for further doubt was the Trump-commanded cruise-missile attack on a Syrian base, based on alleged use of poison gas (longread) by Assad troops. There are several, if not many, stories about this atrocity. In view of the circumstances (the US regime change coalition is on the losing side), it is almost certain that this was also a false flag operation, as they did before in 2013.
Formentioned is the reason that Trump’s statement “We would be extremely upset if Assad used chemical weapons” pissed me off. And also the second statement “We have very little to do with Syria, apart from killing ISIS” had the same effect on me.
We have very little to do with Syria? God damn, again they started another war for power, oil and other dubious goals. Thousands of people killed, displaced and fled.
Apart from killing ISIS? A terrorist group they created themselves. Hé Donald, the job isn’t finished yet!
You don’t believe it? For convenience, I refer to my column “Where would we be without the United States of America?“. Please check the sources listed at the end of the column under the heading ISIS, Iraq, Syria.
The job isn’t finished yet and as I said at the beginning, that’s not at all the intention. Even though Assad, supported by Russia, seems to be winning, the Americans won’t give up.
According to this article, they are currently on a conquest for the oil-rich province of Deir ez-Zor:
“Maloof believes the US is intentionally using the Kurds to permanently entrench themselves in the oil rich Syrian province that is bordering Iraq”.
And according to this article, the weapon supplies to the Syrian rebels ‘simply’ continue in the coming years and will cost a lot of money (in addition to more deaths, refugees and other misery):
“The Department of Defense has budgeted $584 million specifically for this Syrian operation for the financial years 2017 and 2018, and has earmarked another $900 million of spending on Soviet-style munitions between now and 2022. The total, $2.2 billion, likely understates the flow of weapons to Syrian rebels in the coming years”.
All this is perfectly in line with the objectives of the Neocons, “more regime change wars” as described in this article about the Kagen Family, you know, Victoria Nuland, who took care of the coup in Ukraine and helped choosing The post-coup leaders (she is the wife of Neocon Robert Kagan.)
My question is, does Donald Trump know everything about this? And if so, does he agree or not? If I try hard enough, I can imagine that he does not agree but keeps his head down because he doesn’t want to end up dead like John F. Kennedy. If he knows about and agrees with it, I will definitely hang on to my statement “You’re full of shit Donald Trump“.
Too bad, because I hoped that he would keep his promise:
“We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone but rather to let it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to follow”.
Make that promise and do the opposite, then you must be full of shit!
