After Trump’s Syria Attack, What Comes Next?

Assad Trump Putin

Thursday’s US missile attack on Syria must represent the quickest foreign policy U-turn in history. Less than a week after the White House gave Assad permission to stay on as president of his own country, President Trump decided that the US had to attack Syria and demand Assad’s ouster after a chemical attack earlier in the week. Trump blamed Assad for the attack, stated that “something’s going to happen” in retaliation, and less than two days later he launched a volley of 59 Tomahawk missiles (at a cost of $1.5 million each) onto a military airfield near where the chemical attack took place.

President Trump said it is in the “vital national security interest of the United States” to attack Syria over the use of poison gas. That is nonsense. Even if what Trump claims about the gas attack is true – and we’ve seen no evidence that it is – there is nothing about an isolated incident of inhuman cruelty thousands of miles from our borders that is in our “vital national security interest.” Even if Assad gassed his own people last week it hardly means he will launch chemical attacks on the United States even if he had the ability, which he does not.

From the moment the chemical attack was blamed on Assad, however, I expressed my doubts about the claims. It simply makes no sense for Assad to attack civilians with a chemical weapon just as he is winning his war against ISIS and al-Qaeda and has been told by the US that it no longer seeks regime change. On the verge of victory, he commits a suicidal act to no strategic or tactical military advantage? More likely the gas attack was a false flag by the rebels — or perhaps even by our CIA — as a last ditch effort to forestall a rebel defeat in the six year war.

Would the neocons and the mainstream media lie to us about what happened last week in Syria? Of course they would. They lied us into attacking Iraq, they lied us into attacking Gaddafi, they lied us into seeking regime change in Syria in the first place. We should always assume they are lying.

Who benefits from the US attack on Syria? ISIS, which immediately after the attack began a ground offensive. Does President Trump really want the US to act as ISIS’s air force?

The gas attack, which took some 70 civilian lives, was horrible and must be condemned. But we must also remember that US bombs in Syria have killed hundreds of civilians. Just recently, US bombs killed 300 Iraqi civilians in one strike! Does it really make a difference if you are killed by poison gas or by a US missile?

What’s next for President Trump in Syria? Russia has not backed down from its claim that the poison gas leaked as a result of a conventional Syrian bomb on an ISIS chemical weapons factory. Moscow claims it is determined to defend its ally, Syria. Will Trump unilaterally declare a no fly zone in parts of Syria and attempt to prevent Russian air traffic? Some suggest this is his next move. It is one that carries a great danger of igniting World War Three.

Donald Trump’s attack on Syria was clearly illegal. However, Congress shows no interest in reining in this out-of-control president. We should fear any US escalation and must demand that our Representatives prohibit it. If there ever was a time to flood the Capitol Hill switchboard demanding an end to US military action in Syria, it is now!

    What a damn mess. The US/via Trump, doesn’t need to be the “world’s policeman” any more – and the US should pull out, completely, to include any foreign aid to any Middle Eastern countries. Where’s the UN? Isn’t this the sort of crisis that they’re always saying that they need money to prevent or respond to? But, when the time comes, they are nowhere to be found and are silent. Ask “Why” and you will find that the UN is dominated by Third-World despots just like Assad, and the others sympathize with his situation.

    • The UN, also known as the puppet for (((them))).

      It is apparently to damn hard to have a country that protects its own people whilst allowing them to maintain their freedoms. 🙁

  • Freespirit

    WELL done and it sounds like Ron Paul, the only chance and MAN Americans had,( yes past tense) for a TRUE PRESIDENT for the REPUBLIC

  • A revolution by American Patriots upset with the state of their country.

      Need a little motivation? Travelin’ music? Here:

      • Thank you, I quite like the song. 🙂

        • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

          Hey, thank YOU for listening, and especially for caring enough to tell me! Pass it on to like-minds, please; it’s TIME. There’s lots more if you are at all interested. Lemme know.

          • I would suggest sending some of your work to some of the big channels such as Molyneux or TDS. Do you have any more work that I could check out?

          • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

            Stephen Molyneux? I hadn’t considered him. We’ve sent the CD, of which the tune you listened to is the title song, to Infowars, The Higherside Chats, Mark Passio, Conspiracy Queries w/ Alan Park, Vinnie Eastwood, Mark Devlin and I can’t remember who all else. With a Grand Total of NADA for response. We had no problem selling them locally and regionally; we even sold quite a few to friends and compatriots we met online, mostly but not entirely here on Disqus(t). Daily Sheeple might be a good bet, but I suspect Aaron D. already knows about it, considering he was more or less still an employee of Infowars when we sent them out. The album is 13 tunes by 8 regional sickupandfed artists, and we have about 20 left. $12 and we cover shipping anywhere inside the Continental US, but outside of that it’s $10 plus shipping, whatever that comes to. Here’s some links to more toonage, but keep in mind that none of these are the final album mixes; i.e. the only way to hear the truly finished song is on the CD. I even mixed the track you heard at least once more, after our bass player made the accompanying vid for it. Ennyhoo, here ya go:
            https://www.reverbnation.com/bearbonesproductions — Trax 1, 2, 14 & 15 (click “All Music” to access more than the 1st 5 trax), w/ 13 up in the air at the moment. Click on “Artist Blog” and the lyrics to track 1 and the backstory to track 13 are in there. These toons are all slated to appear on our current and about two-thirds finished project, “Vol. II Of The Soundtrack For The Revolution: NUCLEAR FAMILY” (“Bulldoze DC” is Vol. I). Oh yeah, “Goomer Blooz” is on “Bulldoze…” also, and is way down the songlist on ‘verbnation, but worth a find&listen, I think. It’s pretty funny. Speakin’ of funny, here’s a link to our bass player’s vid&toon “Liberal Girl” that’s also on “Bulldoze”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cyonz2eC5s by 10 Pound Test. Here’s a link to our main band and the toons that went on “Bulldoze”: https://www.reverbnation.com/dirtyleslie — Trax 3,4 & 6. And hey, feel free to listen to anything else on these ‘verbnation links, this is just our protest toonage that I’ve specified for you. Also keep in mind that these have all been dumbed-down to Mp3 format, the 8-track of digital audio (I loathe Mp3s). The full-res versions are markedly better sounding, butcha gotta buy a CD to hear those, or come over and have a listening session in the control room (I know, not possible). Lemme know whatcha think of this stuff, please, and if you would care to purchase a CD. It won’t change my opinion of you if ya don’t. I like what you post on here, consistently. I feel you are a bro in arms, as it were…..And, what the hey, here’s a link to our stoodio’s website: http://www.bearbonesproductions.net/ — let me know if you have trouble accessing it, it shouldn’t even still be up anymore (looong story, having to do w/ the billion+ account hack of Yahoo last year, and the subsequent buyout of Yahoo Small Business by a truly nefarious group known as Aabaco). Oh yeah, the music that starts automatically when you access the “Gallery” page on our stoodio website is an early version of the semi-hidden final track on “Bulldoze”, called “Goin’ Postal” ….Enjoy, mon!

          • Thank you very much. I will make sure to check the rest of it out when I have time.

    “What comes next”? Trump will attack N.Korea now that he’s emboldened with increased hubris. He will also attempt to invade Syria in order to cause regime change which will spark WW3!

    This is what happens when you don’t replace every single criminal in Washington with honest politicians who actually represent the people.
    Simply replacing the president or some congressmen or a supreme court justice or two is not enough to bring our government back to a Constitutional Republic. They all need to go.
    And any sort of shadow government needs to be taken out as well. Otherwise we’ll be right back to this in a few years.
    And if we were ever able to get our government back, we need to pay attention to them and be involved in what they are doing so they don’t turn back into this again.

    Am I the only one who finds it peculiar that we have heard nothing from Assad or his officers? Makes one want to leap to the conclusion that they are silent because they are guilty. Critical reasoning says there is a big, big game afoot and that media is controlled/controlling the narrative. Another example of controlled narrative is the lack of media coverage of the Bundy Trial. The event was international front page news but no press coverage of the trial?
