All eyes were on North Korea and Trump’s chat with China. Surprise! Globalists are trying to get the two most powerful nationalist regimes to fight to the death.
I’m pulling a lot from ZeroHedge here, because they’ve got a great blend of InfoWars-style political coverage, as well as in-depth market coverage.
First, the chemical attack from Assad seemed very suspicious. Key quotes:
The latest incident, which comes at a very odd time – just days after the White House it will no longer pursue the ouster of Assad, cementing the Syrian leader’s resolve not to do anything to infuriate the US administration…
Finally, it is worth noting that over the past several months Western countries, including the United States, had been quietly dropping their demands that Assad leave power in any deal to end the war, accepting that the rebels no longer had the capability to topple him by force. The use of banned chemical weapons would make it harder for the international community to sign off on any peace deal that does not remove him, something that Assad – and the rebels – are all aware of. It goes without saying, that the Syrian president had the most to lose from launching a chemical attack just as both the military and diplomatic tide was turning in his favor.
Ron Paul wasn’t buying the narrative:
As Paul Joseph Watson details, pointing out that the prospect of peace in Syria was moving closer before the attack, with ISIS and Al-Qaeda on the run, Paul said the attack made no sense.“It looks like maybe somebody didn’t like that so there had to be an episode,” said Paul, asking, “who benefits?”
“It doesn’t make any sense for Assad under these conditions to all of a sudden use poison gases – I think there’s zero chance he would have done this deliberately,” said Paul.
The former Congressman went on to explain how the incident was clearly being exploited by neo-cons and the deep state to enlist support for war.“It’s the neo-conservatives who are benefiting tremendously from this because it’s derailed the progress that has already been made moving toward a more peaceful settlement in Syria,” said Paul.
Many have questioned why Assad would be so strategically stupid as to order a chemical weapons attack and incite the wrath of the world given that he is closer than ever to winning the war against ISIS and jihadist rebels.
Just five days before the attack, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, “The longer-term status of President Assad will be decided by the Syrian people,” implying a definite shift in U.S. foreign policy away from regime change in Syria.
Why would Assad put such assurances in jeopardy by launching a horrific chemical attack, allowing establishment news outlets like CNN to once against use children as props to push for yet another massive war in the Middle East?
Nor was congressman Thomas Massie willing to dance to the MSM’s narrative tune:
Continuing, the Kentucky congressman asked the question so many who doubt the established line have asked in the past: Why?“Because frankly, I don’t think Assad would have done that. It does not serve his interests. It would tend to draw us into that civil war even further.”
Note that the corporate anchor’s expression snaps to attention the instant she realizes Massie is doubting the narrative.
Bolduan, visibly taken aback by what the man is saying — as though it were inconceivable a U.S. lawmaker might have an original opinion on matters — fumbled for words a few moments before managing a simple: “Who do you think is behind it?”
Massie began to answer, but Bolduan cut him off.
Trump and Putin: Zero / Neocons: 1
Trump and Putin are similar in that they are both nationalists willing to see to their own citizens’ benefit first, before any other people of the world.
The Cold War lasted as long as it did under MAD because Russia wants to live to see victory too. Iran and North Korea are far more frightening because they are willing to die to the last man so long as they can jab the superpower. Or as Robert MacNamara found out from Castro when they first met, decades after the Cuban Missile Crisis, the ideologue-tyrant knew what the repercussions would be for his nation but pushed the Kremlin to escalate and use the missile regardless. (We are fortunate cooler heads prevailed at the Kremlin then.) Cuba would have become a glass parking lot, but at least the leader could die knowing he’d shown America a thing or two before being squished underfoot.
Nationalists are the biggest resistance and threat to globalist goals. Now, if the globalists can get the two nationalist superpowers to fight to the death, they can sweep up the pieces of the survivor into their plan for one world government.
