Interesting Reactions to Trump’s Illegal Attack on Syrian Airbase in Support of al Qaeda

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

by Scott Creighton

Last night’s attack on the Syrian airbase has prompted some cliched responses from the usual suspects but it has also generated some rather interesting ones.

First of all, the “coalition” has responded positively. Germany, Britain, Israel (of course) and Saudi Arabia along with a few others have said this was the perfect response to the Idlib chemical weapons attack that no one knows whether or not it really came from Assad or was in fact a chemical weapons “attack” or simply an airstrike that hit an al Qaeda chemical weapons munition depot.

On Fox News, the old neocon warmongers are literally giggling this morning as they report on big brave Trumpster because he “sent a message” and “reestablished American authority in the region”

(Of course these Fox guys are steadily running down the idea of “international law” and restrictions by the United Nations Security Council as limitations to be upheld by other countries, not by an Exceptional America.)

I’m sure Chris Mathews has a new stain in his pants.

Rachel Maddow spent last night trying to sit squarely on the fence at one time wondering aloud if the strike was legal (it wasn’t) and at others helping the demiGod of Orange justify his crime of aggression.

All of these reactions were completely predictable. What wasn’t is the sudden inclusion across the board of commenters wondering aloud about what rises to power in a vacuum caused by Assad being forced from office. I have seen this question raised on MSNBC, CNN and Fox News this morning and in every occasion, they conclude it would be best if we:

  1. continue the fight against “ISIS”
  2. “stabilize” the country as best we can (breaking it up and handing pieces over to folks like the Kurds)
  3. and… using the coalition to bring about a POLITICAL regime change, not a military one

For those of you paying attention that is not only a STARK departure from what ALL of these outlets were saying just 24 hours ago… but it is EXACTLY what Rex Tillerson said in response to the Idlib “chemical weapons attack”

So it looks like the limited strike has satisfied the blood lust of the war-mongers and they are now willing to adhere to Trump and Tillerson’s policy prior to the airstrike which is a fascinating development. They didn’t go so far as to suggest the Syrian people had a right of self determination, but they did say a “political solution” is preferable.

So I wonder just how much of this strike was just for show or… for the benefit of American audiences more than anything else.

To that question, the Pentagon released a statement after the attack in which they admit they warned the Russians and the Syrians of the impending strike. That is why so few (if any) Syrian planes were hit during the attack.

There are conflicting reports regarding whether or not they warned Syria about the strike. But we all know they warned Russia and certainly everyone knew Russia would warn the Syrians so either way, they warned the Syrians.

The effect of this strike will be minimal. The airbase is one of 7 the SAA uses in their fight against our “moderate” terrorists and the CIA’s “ISIS” and at this point the Syrians have not given specific details regarding material destroyed during the attack.

It is said 4 to 7 Syrian soldiers were killed. Keep in mind, when Obama and Sec. of State Kerry had a deal with the Syrians and the Russians about a half a year ago, the Pentagon launched an “accidental” attack on Syrian soldiers to bust up that deal. That attack killed between 80 and 100 Syrian soldiers depending on who you ask. So Trump’s act of aggression pales in comparison really.

Also keep in mind, back then, the deal was, if they maintain the peace, the U.S. would share it’s intel on “ISIS” with the Russians which would have been a death sentence for the CIA’s destabilization forces. So that attack was indirectly designed to provide aid to “ISIS”, a terrorist organization.

Similarly, yesterday I wrote that Trump’s attack was in support of the local “moderate” terrorists whom the SAA was wiping off the map at the time.

Today, reactions from nations that are not members of the “regime change” coalition echo my conclusion from last night:

The Syrian military was decimating our “moderate” terrorists in their country. Damaging this airbase will reduce their capacity to defend themselves and their civilian population from this terrorist threat.

We all know, Obama and the Pentagon and the CIA put together these terrorists groups and unleashed them on Syria in an effort to bring about “regime change” in the country. “ISIS” is similar construct.

Since this attack will inhibit Syria’s ability to defend against terror groups we back with weapons and intel, it is clear it was conducted to that end…and not to punish Assad for something he likely had nothing to do with.

That means, yes, Donald Trump used America’s armed forces to assist al Qaeda (now called Jabhat al Sham and formerly known as al Nusra)

And as far as I know… if you or I provide material support to al Qaeda today, we go to jail forever. Right?

If you think our “enemies” in Syria are the only ones who make this connection, you would be wrong. By the way, how are the Russians our enemies in this fight if they are fighting “ISIS”?

Here is a statement by Tulsi Gabbard:

“This administration has acted recklessly without care or consideration of the dire consequences of the US attack on Syria without waiting for the collection of evidence from the scene of the chemical poisoning. It angers and saddens me that President Trump has taken the advice of war hawks and escalated our illegal regime change war to overthrow the Syrian government. This escalation is short-sighted and will lead to more dead civilians, more refugees, the strengthening of Al Qaeda and other terrorists, and a possible nuclear war between the US and Russia,”

So it is clear, if you aren’t on the payroll of the Deep State like so many politicians and Mockingbird press members are, that this strike is not punishment… but rather the United States providing material support for “ISIS” and al Qaeda which is unfortunately, par for the course.

Russia has now suspended the memorandum of understanding we have had with them in Syria. That means they will no longer be sharing information on where Russian planes are flying and where they are being housed in the other airbases across Syria.

This is a big step. It keeps the Pentagon from launching further strikes against the Syrian air force in support of al Qaeda because they wont know where Russia’s military assets are and they wont want to risk a major escalation with a nuclear power.

It will also make it harder for the U.S. to target planes in the air with their radar systems because they will have a harder time differentiating between Syrian and Russia planes.

Russia has also announced that they are waiting for the United States to produce the evidence they claim to have that shows Assad and the Syrians used Sarin gas on that strike in Idlib. If it is anything like the evidence the US had that showed the rebels in Ukraine took down MH-17, the Russians will be waiting a long time and the “evidence” will be less than convincing.

Barbara Lee, Rand Paul and others in congress have condemned the attack as illegal, since Trump had no authorization from congress before launching it. They are demanding he come to them so they can have the debate before launching another. Of course, they leave for a 2 week vacation in a few hours.

There is a lot of reaction today as one might expect to Trump’s strike last night.

As I said yesterday, his actions were cowardly. He was either compelled by the Deep State’s bullshit “chemical weapons attack” story or he felt compelled by the Mockingbird press’ constant berating him on his lack of action yesterday. Either way, whether or fool or a coward, he committed a crime of aggression and a violation of both U.S. and international law and should face impeachment immediately for that action.

But we all know he wont be.

The good thing is, it was a manageable dog and pony show with limited adverse results. The Syrians didn’t suffer too much and thank goodness the Dr. Strangeloves in the Pentagon didn’t hit a Russian plane or pilot.

This does leave one to wonder just what the Deep State will do with their terrorists in Syria now that everyone knows the Trumpster will perform as they wish when they pull off their next false flag event in the country.

I only hope the GD monsters don’t figure it would be more effective if the next chemical weapons false flag attack were to hit a few of the 1,000 U.S. troops in country right now. Though I hate to say something like that… we all know these neocon fucks don’t have a problem targeting U.S. civilians or soldiers for that matter.
