Trump's Attack on Syria Domestically Motivated

cruise-missiles

Finally, either the Deep State got hold of President Donald Trump or he succumbed to the ongoing public media propaganda pressure in order to survive politically.

The alleged using of chemical weapons by President Bashar al-Assad against his own people is just another hoax by the US Empire such as the LBJ's Gulf of Tonkin case and G. W. Bush's Iraq WMDs case have been in order to create a reason for an American "official" involvement in the Western-initiated war against al-Assad and President Vladimir Putin in order to fabricate another regime change, which former US President Barack Obama was unwilling to deliver because of his support for the so-called moderate terrorists that have been called "rebels" by the West. Assad does not have to prove his innocence but the burden of proof rests on "prosecutor" Donald Trump.

The public should not buy this baloney that the US administration and the corporate media are presenting. De facto, the attack on Syria is the result of a power struggle within the Trump administration in order to save his shattered presidency. The attack on Syria is a sideshow to give way to domestic pressure.

There is still some hope that the US war hawks and the terror alliance in Syria may not have dragged the US into the Syrian quagmire. So far, there hasn't been any evidence presented that the Syrian government used chemical weapons against its own people. President Bashar al-Assad is not as stupid as Western media propaganda outlets want to make the public believe.

How come that Donald Trump was so carried away by this attack on "sweet little children" that he ordered a military strike against Syrian military installations, knowing that this country doesn't possess any chemical weapons at all to which the United Nations and the Obama administration approved of? Even President Obama wasn't that naive when the terrorist organizations in Syria attacked the people with chemical weapons years ago in order to inspire the US to side with the terrorist forces.

The main concern of the corporate media and their political string-pullers are not the poisoned people in Syria, they were only instruments in order to push Trump and his administration on a more confrontational course with Russia. They have politically neutralized his more or less indifferent stance towards President Putin.

De facto, the attack on Syria is the result of a power struggle within the Trump administration in order to save his shattered presidency. The attack on Syria is a sideshow to give way to domestic pressure.
After Security adviser Michael Flynn was brought down by the Deep State, the next victim will be Steve Bannon, Trump's chief strategist. The loss of his seat in the National Security Council will be the beginning of the end of his career in the White House. Perhaps Press Secretary Sean Spicer will follow suit. His performance was somewhat less than perfect, to say the least.

It seems as if Trump has finally arrived in the political corrupt world of the Belt Way swamp that he once wanted to drain! His political appointees such as Secretary of Defense or State, UN-Ambassador Nikki Haley, Security adviser McMaster are turning out to be dyed-in-the-wool reactionary neocons.

That Trump gets applauded by warmongers like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Zionist neoconservative hard-liners or the fawning media such as NYT, Washington Post, CNN and the rest of the established crowd should not surprise anybody because they want to fight further wars against the interest of the American people.

How crooked and rigged the US political system is, shows that even 16 intelligence agencies plus the FBI haven't come up with the slightest evidence that the Russians "hacked" and manipulated the American elections. A totally corrupt political system doesn't need further manipulations by a foreign power!

The whole Russian hacking affair was a media, Obama, and intelligence agencies spin. Much Ado About Nothing, like William Shakespeare, used to say. The Deep State achieved its main goal; Donald Trump is finally in line with the expansionist aims of the US Empire!

Didn't senior Trump officials stated just recently before the attack that they didn't want to topple President Al-Assad? His government has handed over his entire chemical stockpile to the Russians after the terrorists used Sarin gas the first time in order to drag Obama into the Syrian war.

So far, none of the investigations by UN and Western organizations have come up with any reliable evidence. On the other side, the Western propaganda outlets such as CNN, BBC, New York Times and others recycle the mere speculations over and over again till they sound as facts. After Rex Tillerson went to the G7 summit the US administration changed its opinion about al-Assad.

It's well known that the so-called good terrorists have chemical weapons. These guys are best friends of the US, the Israelis, the Saudis, and the other Arab regimes that the Trump administration is cozying up to. Trump doesn't mind that the Saudis are killing Yemenites by the tenth of thousands. But as I said, it's not about the victims; it's about power politics of the US Empire and not about personal feelings of Trump towards Putin.

Finally, Trump has grasped it, and he will go the way of confrontation, such as the North Korean example will show, and the Democrats will be all for it like they enthusiastically embraced the so-called war on terror that George W. Bush proclaimed in the aftermath of 9/11.

That the US attack on Syria violates international law goes without saying. But the US does only care about international law when it suits its goals. President Vladimir Putin is right to criticize US violations of international treaties. It seems, however, that he lost hope after the visit of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to Russia.

The Trump administration seems to fall back on the ant-Russian position of the Obama and the Clinton years. Apparently, the domestic pressure has been so strong that President Trump has chosen confrontation over cooperation. Whether the upcoming confrontation will make America greater again remains to be seen.
