Bush and Trump: History Repeats.. First as Tragedy, Then as Farce

    It bespeaks terrible weakness that he must *respond* to a false-flag provocation in order to show *strength*. It’s telling no naval assets were used. How long are the Russians going to play nice?

    At least Clown in Chief did not try to squeeze into the co-pilot seat of fighter jet and fly to a aircraft carrier to launch this tweet.

    LOL at linking to a Sputnik story on Russian claims about shooting down 71 cruise missiles.

    For balance, the Pentagon says none of the cruise missiles were shot down and none of them malfunctioned or crashed. The Syrian air defences did fire off around 40 surface to air missiles, but almost all of these were fired after the cruise missiles had already hit their targets. Journalist in Syria during the attack confirmed that the Syrian anti-aircraft missiles they saw launched were after the attack was over. Russians did not fire off any of the more modern anti-aircraft missiles it has in Syria.

    The Pentagon version seems more likely and has some verification by independent journalist.

    You can chose to believe the story from a Russian propaganda site like Sputnik, but I think that says a lot about you.

    Perhaps you are old enough to remember Pentagon claims about Patriot missiles intercepting over 90% of Scuds during the first Iraq war? How did that turn out? Or to go back even earlier, what about all those claims made by Pentagon that USA would win Vietnam war any day in 1967? Or if you want to go back even earlier, how about the claims that USA would win the Korean war in 1951? Returning to a more contemporary time- what about all those Saddam Hussein’s WMD? How did that work out? How about their repeated claims of crushing the Iraqi insurgency any day in 2003, 2004, 2005… You get the point, right?

    There is a good reason that the Syrian claims of shooting down most of those cruise missiles are correct, and here is why. Did you notice the lack of “leaks” and “news releases” from Pentagon containing satellite imagery of all the sites they allegedly hit? Why are all photos of one or two sites? What about the other six or more military airports? What went wrong there? FYI- Cruise missiles are pretty easy to shoot down if you place the right type of AA missile/gun systems at the intended target.

      Your post on all the ways Russia might respond to a US attack on Syria left out the response they are in fact using: a massive internet based disinformation campaign. You have either been taken in by the Russian disinformation or you are in fact part of the campaign.

      By the way, the US military says there were only 3 targets. It is Russian propaganda that there were 9 or 10 targets.

      That is not what they said immediately after announcing that strike. The word used was “many” not “three”. It became that number once they realized that all the well-defended targets suffered little to no hits.

      Then again, if you are dumb enough to believe the story justifying their bullshit “humanitarian intervention”, why not any other cock-and-bull story they are telling or have told in the past.

        “That is not what they said immediately after announcing that strike. The word used was “many” not “three”.”

        President Trump in his statement just said: “A short time ago I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.” It does not make any mention of how many targets and does not use the word “many”.

        http://abcnews.go.com/International/video/pentagon-syria-strike-specifically-hit-targets-54461086

        This is video of the Pentagon press conference following Trump’s statement. It clearly says that there were only three targets.

        I think you need to look at a little more diverse news and information sources rather than just passing on Russian propaganda.

        Legalese-ridden statements written after the dust has settled are worthless. I find the ones released just before and after the strike to be especially revealing. Note the times on those tweets and ya they were expecting something that simply failed to materialize.

        For example.. https://twitter.com/NPR/status/984960632603717639

        The U.S. struck multiple targets in Syria overnight local time in response to an alleged chemical attack on civilians April 7. 7:04 PM – 13 Apr 2018

        or this one.. https://twitter.com/Reuters/status/984965750116020225

        BREAKING: U.S. strikes in Syria aimed at multiple targets, involved Tomahawk missiles – U.S. official 7:25 PM – 13 Apr 2018

        The word “multiple” means more than one, and probably more than 2. Three targets would certainly qualify as multiple. These tweets do not use the word “many”.

        Wise up. The Russians have learned how to use the internet to spread disinformation and propaganda. You have either been taken in by the operation or you are part of it.

        Perhaps you should only read blogs which support whatever you already believe, or watch MSNBC (given your likely age).

        Here is a classic hit for you.. remember that outright lies such as these were used to sell the Iraq war in 2003.

      • April 16, 2018 at 2:12 pm

        Mattis stated more than once that twice the number of bombs and missiles were employed this time over last year. That certainly indicates more than a few targets were intended.

        Why the timing of this, one year after the last?

        What is the need? Why does USA repeatedly involve itself in this manner? What are the power brokers, elite, who are doing this over and over getting out of it? If they aren’t getting anything, then why do they do it? If you think its because they are “moral” and use their power to “fight evil” and really have the best plans for humanity, then I would love an opportunity to sell you some of your own feces.

    Foreign involvement is pernicious. Stop facilitating it. Get out of the suburbs and ride your bike more often. Never eat prole food and speak ill of walmart, Goldman Sachs, and Cosmopolitan. Corporate culture is predatory. So is it’s management culture. Avoid it at all costs. No brand. Date women who clearly signal love of children. Avoid feminists. Play music with your friends, take walks with your family, and never use facebook. When this religion wins, we all win.

    Jews and their pet cuck underlings got us into this. Make sure everyone notices and understands. Tell lighthearted jokes about aspects of social and neo liberalism at every opportunity. That’s exactly what Jews did to undermine the rest of us.

    Regardless of whether AD is “part of a Russian disinformation campaign” or not, the pattern for several generations has been USA claiming over and over imminent “wins” prior to dismal failures, without resolutions and military involvement fizzling out only after billions of war dollars have changed hands. USA isn’t the producer and exporter of goods it once was. However, USA is arguably the worlds primary exporter of war, considering all the war machines it still produces and sells abroad as well as its military campaigns and incessant meddling in other countries civil wars and policing skirmishes between parties other than USA. If you think this is not “patriotic”, then ask yourself why should patriotism require meddling in the affairs of others? Patriotism certainly requires defending ones nation…including its culture, language and borders. But why does it necessarily require playing policeman for the entire world….especially while allowing the nations borders, language and culture to be corrupted or subsumed? War is as big a business as religion. Again, USA claims imminent “win” after “win” prior to dismal failure and without resolution and military involvement fizzling out only after billions of war dollars have changed hands. It is as if the whole strategy is intended for this result. Don’t repeated net results point to real intentions, all intents combined, especially in a context involving so many parties and requiring so much effort? Doesn’t this pattern of war with massive amounts of money changing hands, flowing to the same players over and over, repeated so many times begin to expose an underlying operative behind the face of media?

    It is undeniable that USA involves itself in war constantly, incessantly and war makes lots of money flow. This is irrefutable fact.
