Israel keeps striking Syria, targeting the Iranians who are there to fight terrorists. Terrorists who, strangely, never strike Israel. If you click on the link below, you can see a video of the latest attack on Syria by a mega bomb that many took to be a tactical nuke, though that is unconfirmed and unlikely (another strike was reported this morning).
We are losing count, but last year, an Israeli official admitted Israel had fired over 100 missiles into Syria in 2017 alone, all targeting the Iranians helping to fight terror. Few complained for 2 reasons: 1–The msm were under-reporting these attacks, and 2–"Christian" Zionists, whose number is legion, generally believe it is a sin to criticise Israel or defend the human rights of an Iranian.
Meanwhile, though Iran has threatened to strike back, it has not done so in all these many years that it has fought ISIS and Al-Qaeda in Syria and Iraq. We suspect Russia's moderating hand in the background.
Americans are conditioned by their government and pro-Israel groups to accept these unprovoked attacts as perfectly normal. Yet in a world without conditioning by msm, politicians, mega-pastors and ordinary people spreading the “Christian” Zionist message, the entire West would rise up and demand that the bombings stop in the name of peace.
But our worst enemy is our own mind, which is generally wholly owned by the elitist forces that keep on stoking war. In your heart of hearts you want peace, but superposed on your heart are years of conditioning making you feel guilty if you demand it. You are not a good conservative or patriot or Democrat if you demand peace or, heaven forbid, if you defend Russia or the Syrian people who fight ISIS.
There is a lot of ink spilt over the roles of Obama and Trump. The former is seen by conservatives as weak (just as Carter was), while the latter is seen as strong. These are conditioned views not benefitting from the fresh air of independant thought.
The simple fact of the matter is that there is little to no difference between Obama and Trump in terms of foreign policy. Though it is incendiary to say that, it is a glaringly obvious fact to those few Westerners who think with their own brains instead of borrowing the brains of others deemed to be “experts.”
People ignore or forget the facts and go to outside sources for an “expert” analysis of foreign policy, as if thinking on their own might give them a brain ache. Yet these respected analysts haven’t had a smidgen of moral upbringing and are proud of that fact.
The most important fact from the Obama administration that they forget is the videos and photographs of mile after mile of ISIS militants traversing the desert single file in brand new white Toyota pickups and entering Syria from Iraq in broad daylight. Everyone knew at the time that the “war on terror” had been declared by Washington, and certainly, some of those with functional grey matter wondered why in hell Obama and his commanders didn’t just strike these terrorists from the air and end their miserable lives then and there. This desert crossing was the critical point when they were allowed to enter Syria to mingle with civilians and hold them hostage. It was this outrageous dereliction of duty by Obama that led to thousands of deaths in the ensuing battles where whole towns, notably Raqqa, were destroyed, along with their populations. And the US had the gall to blame these and all other deaths on Assad. Many explained this declaring that Obama was a Muslim and was helping the Muslims at the expense of his own people. But that would have been sinister machinations, not weakness and it was not why he refused to fight ISIS. After all, a good Muslim would have done his best to protect the Muslim civilians. No one ever asked why he and all other presidents before (since 1973) and after Obama had a double standard on Islam, considering the vicious Wahhabists as the good guys somehow and the Iranian and Syrian Shiites who opposed them as the bad guys some other how. We weren’t supposed to notice that about either Obama or Trump, and yet it was the central issue, shining a spotlight on the fact that both left and right, “weak” and “strong,” were acting in lockstep in their foreign policy, marching their hapless clueless people into a quagmire in every war theatre they entered. Their focus was on killing as many people as possible and destroying infrastructure (the reason for this explained in Vahan Bogdasarian’s 3-part series here, here and here).
And it was a perfect storm for the masses, with the left blaming the right for dragging them into the war in the first place and the right blaming the left for not maintaining a permanent troop surge until the end of the 21st Century and beyond and to the last greenback in the US Treasury.
Even the most intellectually endowed took the usual path of least resistance, switching off their challenged minds and awaiting the opinion of the “experts.” The given wisdom had it that since these were geopoliticians with PhDs from the best universities, and many of whom had served for years in the State Departments of past administrations, who were the little people to question their vast knowledge and wisdom? People like Madeleine Albright, Henry Kissinger, Hillary Clinton and Brzigniew Brzezinski. Who but the most arrogant would dare to challenge their geopolitical wisdom?
Yet every one was a butcher who in the long run sought to harm their own country while completely destroying others for the simple reason articulated by Bogdasarian.
It never seems to have occurred to the plebes that these men and women were almost exclusively propagandists sharing the Neocon ideology of US hegemony and had little to no understanding of the cultures, interrelationships, history, religions, attitudes, education level, degree of tolerance/intolerance, mentalities, prejudices, political clout, tribal relationships and other distinctive features of these peoples and how these features played into US relations with them – and particularly how easily a deep knowledge of these features could have brought lasting peace to the region within a relatively short time – if that had been the goal of the US government. Thus the “experts” shared – besides a profound ignorance of the on-the-ground reality and a disdain for their foreign clients – one salient characteristic, and that was the desire to utilize these peoples for the aggrandizement and enrichment of the US elites, grinding the “enemies,” notably the Shiites, Palestinians and secular but independent leaders, into the dust and utilizing the “allies,” particularly the Saudi Gulf State Sunnis, terrorsts posing as “moderates,” mostly Wahhabists, and Israel, to destroy them and keep them in poverty and submission until the end of the 21st Century and beyond in a kind of supranational feudalism.
Even the hard-core sceptics amongst the populace hadn’t an inkling of how the petrodollar agreement, signed originally between Richard Nixon and Saudi King Faisal in 1973, was affecting foreign policy decisions in a way that made all major wars after the signing of that document benefit the Saudis to the detriment of the US economy and US prestige – all on the untested and possibly erroneous theory that if only the Saudis charged only dollars for their oil and kept only dollars in reserve, the USD could float forever like a leaf on the surface of a pond.
Designed to prop up the US dollar, it was gradually having the opposite effect.
As for Trump, while touted as the slayer of the Deep State, he was in fact part of the elitist clique that kept the pot of permanent war boiling.
The same plebes who could not see past the superficial left-right dichotomy could not remember – and would not have cared – that during his campaign, Trump constantly repeated the refrain “Iran is the biggest state sponsor of terror.” This was the biggest Neocon warmongering lie of all because it demonized the group that fought terror and covered for the group that sponsored it, and would lead inevitably, step by step, to a final confrontation between the US and allies on the one hand and Iran and allies – including nuclear-armed Russia – on the other. It is amazing that so few Trump voters noticed that the man they chose to bring peace to their country was, from the very outset, inexorably leading them down the path toward what promised to be the most catastrophic war of all time, involving the two supreme nuclear powers in a way that could not but end in a nuclear exchange, barring an act of God.
Thus what these same people called the Deep State – supposedly a group of sinister wizards behind the curtain who sought to control Trump – in fact, had in common with Trump was the ambition to further stoke the wars in the Muslim world. Indeed, his contention that Islam was the enemy and not the CIA, the State Department, the Pentagon, the msm, the political and banking classes and all the players who keep the fires of war burning, was in full accord with Israeli propaganda, as promoted by the likes of Daniel Greenfield and Pamela Geller, which sought to justify the murder of young Palestinians and the bombing of Syrians and Iranians engaged in the fight against terror. After all, for millions of “Christian” Zionists, killing Muslims is a good and godly act on the part of Judeo-Christians and supporting it will get us all to the gates of Zion.
Isn't it strange? "Christian" Zionists have no fear of nuclear war because they htink that God will protect the warmongers for their saintly loyalty to Israel. Yet they somehow believe that without their intervention, God would be incapable of protecting Israel all by Himself.
