Trump or Treat

Trump or Treat

Just a few hours ago, President Donald Trump authorized military strikes in Syria and the U.S. launched 59 missiles. So much for President Dwight Eisenhower's warning about "the undue influence of the military-industrial complex" in his farewell speech in 1961. Back in 2013, Donald Trump had repeatedly warned President Obama about intervention in Syria, "Do not attack Syria. There is no upside and tremendous downside" and tweeted, "The President must get Congressional approval before attacking Syria". Well, President Trump started bombing Syria without Congressional approval. Interestingly, earlier today, Hillary Clinton called to "Take out Assad's air fields" and Turkish President Erdogan declared ahead of time that "Turkey would support U.S. military action in Syria"... They're all using the same script.

So why are we attacking yet another country? Well, it isn't yet another country, in fact we never stopped bombing Syria and other Muslim countries for most of President Obama's second term. But just like in 2013 the highly questionable accusation is that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad used chemical weapons on his own people killing more than 80 civilians including children. Why would he do that? It doesn't make any sense - strategically or otherwise. Maybe as Ron Paul put it: "There is zero chance Assad is behind the likely false flag chemical attack in Syria".

In the last 10-15 years, we have destroyed Iraq, Libya, Syria and meddled in the affairs of many other countries claiming that "we are bringing freedom and democracy" to their people. The fake outrage that U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. exhibited while holding photos of dead children to justify "unilateral action" was among the most disgusting examples of theater I've seen in a while. The Empire run by the "military-industrial-financial complex" is not going to stop until it self-destructs. On behalf of my fellow citizens I would like to say "not in our name", but most Americans, hypnotized by media propaganda, actually believe "The United States is a force for good in the world and can do no wrong". With this new "intervention", the death toll rises once again.
