Top 15 Reasons Why Trump’s Syria Strike Is So Unsettling

1.) President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, pushed for the strike in Syria and won the argument with Steve Bannon. No one imagined during the campaign that Kushner would be brought into the administration and would rapidly amass so much power on core issues like our foreign policy. We didn’t vote for his royal highness Jared Kushner.

2.) President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, was also brought into the administration and has similarly amassed considerable power. During the campaign, Ivanka’s sphere was perceived to be limited to women’s issues like maternity leave which were non-problematic. Now, we are in a situation where Ivanka’s feelings are influencing the president on matters of war and peace and superpower conflict, which is something we never imagined would happen during the campaign.

3.) I traveled to Washington to attend President Trump’s inauguration. Richard Spencer was also there on the National Mall. We clearly heard him say “from this day forward it is going to be America First, America First.” In less than three months, we have gone from “America First” to Hillary Clinton’s “responsibility to protect” foreign policy which produced interventions in the Balkans and Libya.

4.) Hillary Clinton chimed in to endorse Trump’s attack on Syria. Many people voted for President Trump because they didn’t want Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy.

5.) Every leading neocon has endorsed the attack on Syria and called for an invasion and occupation of the country which would plunge us into yet another Middle East quagmire for years.

6.) This was done because Assad is an “evil dictator” who has “gassed his own people.” He is a totally irrational madman. It is the exact same language that was used to justify invading Iraq.

7.) We supported Trump in part because we wanted a better relationship with Russia and an end to our current foreign policy. Instead of moving beyond the Cold War, we have returned to it.

8.) Trump has sawed off the “America First” foreign policy leg of his appeal. This casts new doubt on all of his other promises. If he can dispense with something that fundamental to his campaign, what’s next? We’re already seeing disturbing reports about other issues like immigration.

9.) Clearly, the decision has been made that we are going to preserve the American Empire. Trump is going to play the role of “Leader of the Free World.” In other words, the world’s problems are going to be our problems. We could easily stumble into a war with Syria and that would end up absorbing the attention of President Trump rather than everything he promised to do to “Make America Great Again.”

10.) Israel wants us to invade and occupy Syria. The same is true of Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the Gulf States. We’re back to the days of fighting wars on behalf of other countries.

11.) ISIS and the “moderate rebels” are already near defeat. There is no reason to intervene in Syria except to further destabilize that country and prolong the violence there.

12.) As a friend pointed out on Twitter, the essence of globalism is the belief that the world is our jurisdiction. Obama kept us out of Syria and Iran. That was a good thing. It was one of the key reasons why there wasn’t a President McCain or President Romney.

13.) Trump won over a lot of swing voters who opposed Hillary because she was perceived as being the warmonger in the race. They probably feel betrayed by now.

14.) Nothing good came out of Iraq or Libya. Syria is already a disaster. It would be madness to plunge into that disaster. It is a country even more dysfunctional than our own.

15.) The attack on Syria was done with total disregard for the Constitution and international law. It was an unprovoked act of aggression against a sovereign country. It was both immoral and illegal.

    If it were not unsettling on Friday, it becomes more so every day, particularly in light of Czar Vlad’s disclosure, today, that The Jew England Government is planning to bomb Damascus and blame it on Assad; and that, according to Tillerson, ‘Assad must fall’.

  2. Hunter look at it this way. Donald Trump was going to have to staff his entire administration from the same swamp he threatened to drain. We always knew he had 1 of 2 choices. Choice number one was to fight them the entire way, staff his administration with state and local level nobodies who would swear fealty to him or Choice number two which was attempt to staff your administration with Washington insiders and attempt a unity government. He picked choice two and now the Deep State has taken over. Whether Trump was honest or a liar the entire time I don’t think matters. When you rely on this Deep State for all of your intelligence and it controls the US Military Complex, what real shot did he have?

    I think, above all, President Trump wants to be seen as ‘successful’, and, that so, it occurred to him, during the Obamacare Repeal debacle, that he was not going to be, unless he played along.

    Faust has given in to Mephistofeles.

    ‘The attack on Syria was done with total disregard for the Constitution and international law. It was an unprovoked act of aggression against a sovereign country. It was both immoral and illegal.’

    Chryst said you could tell a tree by it’s fruit; and, as such, how could the United States’ Government be anything but.

    It has been largely that since 1861.

  5. Tsar Bomba was the Western nickname for the Soviet RDS-220 hydrogen bomb (code name Ivan or Vanya), the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated. Its test on October 30, 1961 remains the most powerful human-made explosion in history. Developed by the Soviet Union, the bomb had a yield of 57 megaton TNT (210 PJ). In theory, the bomb had a maximum yield of 100 megatons if it were to have included a U-238 tamper, but because only one bomb was built, this was never demonstrated.

    These make great Russian business cards…wonder if they have built any since this size we don’t know about…

  6. Russia is out white-ing us….Multiculturalism has hurt us since the 1960’s…and Trump doesn’t realize just how much we have changed…

  7. @Turn Hearts…

    ‘Russia is out white-ing us….Multiculturalism has hurt us since the 1960’s…and Trump doesn’t realize just how much we have changed.’

    Is President Trump trying to realize anything, or is he merely trying to be ‘successful’?

  8. @winbornmill

    I have heard that when an elected leader is being inducted into office the one thing on his mind is on how he can be re-elected…that’s probably the only thing he is really thinking about…

  9. Donald Trump makes Benedict Arnold look like a piker. I was outraged that Donald let a pipskeak federal judge block his authority on immigration, but that now is the least of Trumps outrages.

  10. For whatever it’s worth a poll indicated that 36% disapprove of the missile attack while only 18% approve of putting boots on the ground. If these figures are reliable would it not be political suicide for Trump to wade in any deeper?

  11. @Turn Hearts:

    I’d be inclined to think that Trump agreed to this fiasco to get his domestic agenda met as a way to re-election. If the wall was being constructed as we post while Tillerson was rattling our sabre, I’d agree, but that smug little prick, Paul Ryan is breaking all speed records to remove the wall from this year’s budget. It will be tabled forever.

    This stunning reversal reminds me a lot of Supreme Court Justice Roberts on Obamacare. People were sure, up to the last second, he’d overturn it, even Obama’s lawyers thought he would and he came up with his own reason to uphold it.

    It reeks to high heaven of blackmail or skullduggery. LIke JR said in Dallas, “If we can’t find a skeleton in his closet, we’ll put one there.” The Deep State has got (or put) something on him and its YUUUUGE.

    If Trump has a lick of sense, he knows there is no chance in hell that he is going to be re-elected. At this point, he is trying to survive his ONE TERM without getting impeached and thrown into federal prison where he would die behind bars.

  12. I’m starting to consider the long con theory. Was National Review trying to help Trump win? You could almost believe it.

  13. Constitution of the Confederate States of America
    Article 2 Section 1 reads as: “The executive power shall be vested in a President of the Confederate States of America. He and the Vice President shall hold their offices for the term of six years; but the President shall not be re-eligible.”

    If a President would serve only 1 six year term, then all the wasted time and effort to get re-elected would be eliminated and would probably allow a President to get more done in 6 years than in 2 four year terms.

  14. “…Obama kept us out of Syria and Iran…”

    I have nothing for Obama or Clinton but I must admit they were smart enough not to get us embroiled in massive wars. When Obama saw Libya was going to shit he just let it rot instead of doubling down.

    I wonder why is it that Trump can’t get rid of Ryan and McConnell? What power do they have? Where does it come from?

  15. ‘I wonder why is it that Trump can’t get rid of Ryan and McConnell? What power do they have? Where does it come from?’

    He can’t.

    Ryan was reelected as Speaker of the House in Jan. of 2017. One vote shy of being unanimous.

  16. This southern nationalist is enjoying the obvious disintegration of the Trump presidency into the Jew World Order.

    The only way Trump can recover is by firing Kushner immediately, and fire the rest of the neocons he foolishly hired.

    He’s unlikely to do that, so he’s going to remain mired in Jew feces.
