Trump is Correct on Syria. Trump was right, again!

Don’t you wish some people would keep their mouths shut until they know all the facts? We’re only now beginning to get a glimpse of the reality of the situation on the ground.

Congress, last week, voted 360+, to slap the hand of the President on his Syria policy. They were wrong, again, because they believed the “Jumping Chihuahua” media instead of trusting the President. And again, the media was WRONG, and again, Trump was right.

I wish I had a transcript of this interview, so I could nail it to the forehead of every Republican when they even THINK about doubting President Trump.

Let’s take a look at Trump’s plan for the border area between Syria and the Kurds. “Historic solutions in Syria that have eluded us for years.”, says Graham, and “President Trump is thinking outside the box” and “I was so impressed with his thinking about the oil fields” —— Can you see my shocked face? Did Graham not listen to ANY Trump MAGA rallies? President Trump has been talking about it for YEARS!!!!!! We knew!

  1. USA and Syria control the oil, “On the verge of a joint venture between us and the Syrian Democratic Forces” to modernize the oil fields with USA help, that way the oil revenue goes to the locals instead of Assad, ISIS, or Iran. And the shared revenue will pay for USA commitment to the region…… !!!!!!!!!!
  2. Develop something like a DMZ between Syria and Turkey. Kurds have lost 10K fighters and the USA has lost eight soldiers (mostly Kurdish) fighters. DMZ will contain an international force, no Americans, supported by USA air power.
  3. This keeps Turkey safe, from the “bad Kurds”, who are terrorists, because we now know there are at least two different sects.
  4. This keeps Syria and the Kurds safe.
  5. This ensures no Iranian involvement.
  6. Protects Israel as a primary objective.

“I’m increasingly optimistic, this could turn out very well.“, says Graham.

Well, WTF? What did he think President Trump was going to do? I want to slap him, or shake him, like Cher did in Moonstruck, “Snap out of it!”, Lindsey.

Once again, the media, the think tanks, the GOPe and the Dems are stuck in a rut. Did they expect Trump, The People’s President, to harm the USA interests? Or THEIR interests? Act spontaneously? Did Graham expect Trump to be stupid and not listen to the Pentagon’s proposals….. and then morph several ideas to come up with a better idea? Of course, all of DC thinks Trump is either stupid, ……or they are stupid……. or…….. they are evil and want to maintain control at all costs.

The “Jumping Chihuahua/Dog” nature of Trump’s opposition, the people’s opposition, is very telling. Here they are, all in unison, performing for the media. They all jump on cue every time Trump tweets or holds a presser.

Yes, Lindsey Graham in his tweet storm which started less than 30 minutes after Trump’s announcement, proved he was a jumping Chihuahua. Remember Lindsey’s “I will NOT be quiet…” beating chest like a Tarzan, yet he went on Fox and Friends, within 30 minutes, without knowing the details. He triggered all the usual NeoCons, Nikki Haley, Mitch McConnell, and began the drumbeat “I have spoken with Speaker Pelosi” and “Am working with Senator Van Hollen” (the Dem) for sanctions against Turkey (as if the Congress could do a better job on sanctions than Mnuchin – it’s laughable).

Again confirming he believed the PRESS over trusting his President

We see through this farce. The people know. It’s why the media’s approval ratings are down. It’s why Congress’ approval ratings are lower than cockroaches. We voted for real change, on war/trade/immigration/healthcare/unruly agencies, and we aim to get it.

Yes, the Syrians have been fighting in this region for hundreds of years. It was THEIR problem before the USA was barely a country. Yet, DAMMIT, if we’re going to go over there, lose even one precious American soldier, then By GOD, we’re going to fix it, and impose a solution on the region whether they effing like it or not.

Of course, the people KNOW their President. We KNEW something was going on, and held back on comments. Sure enough, about three days later, at a rally in Dallas, he explained what we already knew….. “Sometimes, you have to let them fight, like kids in a school lot”. After a few days, the Kurds were ready to strike a peace deal with Assad, the one they resisted for two years. Surprised? Pence and Pompeo flew to Turkey, and after a strongly worded “letter” from the President, we had a “pause” or a “ceasefire”.

As Scott Adams so eloquently pointed out, what are the rules for ALL ceasefires in the Middle East. What should we immediately expect? Paraphrasing from Scott Adams snark:

  1. Within 24 hours, one party allegedly bombs a “hospital”. Yes, of course, of all the targets Turkey could have allegedly chosen, it makes sense they would choose a hospital above anything else. Yeah, right…. snark.
  2. Someone releases an alleged chemical attack. Lots of white phosphorus in the Middle East, apparently. Do they think we’re stupid?
  3. The mother and dead baby (who has pink cheeks and is blinking), mourning perfectly, center of frame, for the media. And yet, the media tried it again.

And guess what happened in Syria……… the SAME playbook unfolded. We KNOW this is the playbook. And we also know any reports of “death” or “fighting” cannot be trusted because ground reports are impossible and unreliable in the fog of any war. Where are all the dead Kurds? Have you seen them? Confirmed? I mean, the media warned us of the massive ethic cleansing which COULD happen!! At this point, the media should be satisfied with a spoiled Cheese Curd.

For THIS reason we have 2 million immigrants in Europe, burning over 800 churches in France? Attacking Christmas markets in Germany? So many knife attacks in England the Mayor of London has tried banning KNIVES! Landing on the beaches in Spain? Economic burden for Germany? About to destroy the EU as Poland/Hungary and others are unwilling to take more migrants? What bozo thought THAT was a good idea? Oh yeah, it was Merkel, the one who loved Obama but loathes Trump. The whole thing is stupid. Yes, these are stupid people. Because if they’re not stupid, then they are intentionally malicious and evil, sowing the seeds of their own destruction.

epa05854766 US President Donald J. Trump (R) and German Chancellor Angela Merkel (L) during a joint news conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC, USA, 17 March 2017. Merkel’s original visit on 14 March had to be postponed due to bad weather. EPA/CLEMENS BILAN

Yet, along comes an American leader, Donald Trump, to step in, stop the foolishness/death/economic loss/decay, take the heat of the barking dogs, to save them all……… while they complain about being saved…… because it’s so much more fun to be miserable, destitute, or dead. Idiots!!

President Trump is going to win this one in Syria. Within 6 months, I’m betting, the barking dogs will claim it to be their idea. It’s the best possible solution for all parties concerned.

On October 11th, Lindsey and other NeoCons raced to the print media and microphones to predict “the biggest mistake of his Presidency”, the “rebirth of ISIS”, “genocide and ethnic cleansing” and the wrath of hell unleashed.

What a difference a few days makes. By October 17th, Lindsey was singing a different tune. Truth is, we have to give Lindsey credit for acknowledging his error in judgement, but it probably won’t stop his inner Chihuahua. Nonetheless, he is far ahead of the Dems and media……. who won’t admit the brilliant strategy of Trump.

And by October 18th, looks like the peace is holding and the Kurdish General is happy.

The media, the Dems, the think tanks, the Atlantic Council, and the NeoCon GOP are unbearable sad dogs.

Not only has President Trump won this one with the voters, he exposed the inept governing style of Dems, GOPe and the media which lies to the people. The Atlantic Council fellows should be shriveling like vampires in bright sunlight. He’s bringing troops home, making a better deal in the Middle East, co opting the GCC on the ground as well. “Peace is the prize”, Donald Trump.

Recently, a Dem strategy talking point memo was secretly found and released. The #3 item on the list for Dems in 2020 was to criticize President Trump for NOT bringing home the troops. Imagine that one? So, they criticize President Trump for bringing home troops……. cuz Muh Politics…… but they were willing to criticize Trump for NOT bringing home troops ………. cuz Muh Politics.

Are you getting the impression they don’t give a damn about our soldiers…….. only ………. Muh Politics.

Genuine affection, love, admiration for our military members comes from within, and it can never be faked for “Muh Politics”.

God bless our men and women in the military, wherever they are.

    I vote for ‘intentionally malicious and evil’.

    And they think they will be immune from the destruction that they cause.
    They probably think they can go…”Ooops, we didn’t know this would happen.”…and then slime out of taking any responsibility for what they’ve done.

    Remember ‘Aubergine’s Razor’, as Wolf called it:

    “It is dangerous to attribute to stupidity that which could be the result of malice or guile.”

    Merkel just admitted that “Multiculturalism had failed”.
    So she’s already starting to slime out of responsibility…it’s multiculturalism’s fault.

The biggest one, and one the folks in Köln (Cologne) still haven’t forgotten, was/were the rapes in the CATHEDRAL SQUARE of the Kölner Dom, one of the oldest, largest, and most famous Cathedrals in Germany, if not Europe. Talk about the Mozzies going after Cultural and Religious places, icons, and persons….

        1200 RAPES. And of those, only THREE (yes, THREE) perps actually ended up in jail. And not long after, they were RELEASED!!!!!!! The police (and of course, the victims) are furious. There’s a new term for it now (I guess to go with their “How To Pick Up German Women Classes [I kid you not!]). Sexuelle Nötigung.

      Remember how Zero wanted to call it “ISIL”? Very contemptuous ploy thinking people were stupid and wouldn’t see his shell game with “Levant”. He wanted to distract people from Syria which was the intended target. Probably ultimately to distance himself from the mess he directly had a hand in. Keep people from connecting the dots from Libya/Bengazi. Doesn’t seem to have worked. And of course the globo-idiots tried their “blue on green” stunt to get us back in (signalling with the sunset photo w/ Zero and Mic wearing blue sitting on green) only to have Mike & Mike show the world how Trump gets it DONE. All out, we will not be drawn back in. Peace without kinetic force. And on cue, the globo-idiots lose their collective minds 🙂

      1. There is so much more to this story.

        I am pretty sure Hussein and the Hildabeast were running guns out of Libya into Syria. They (purposefully) didn’t vet buyers very well, and lots of those guns went to ISIS.

        I think it is also likely that they were in the process of looting Libya’s gold.

        And I have read plausible stories that Christopher Stephens had in his possession a hard drive full of classified material that was to be sold to our enemies that the small group of guys who sought to defend Stephens managed to spirit out of Libya.

        Rescuing those guys would have made the cover up of all of this more complicated. So Hussein went to bed and left Valerie Jarrett to command the US military, even thought she was not authorized to do so.

This coercion was part of the cover up and is the reason we don’t know the identify of many of the people involved. Hussein’s spying and intimidation campaign against the US investigative journalist Sharly Attkisson was part of the cover up as well.

    1. From Green on blue, unboxing, and brass: on the radar in September 2012:

      … Green on blue is modeled after an earlier phrase, blue on blue, referring to inadvertent clashes between members of the same side in an armed conflict… Blue on blue originated in the British military in the early 1980s, but has now spread around the world, and even moved beyond the military sphere to describe accidental shootings among police officers.

      What are the blue and green referred to in these phrases? It doesn’t have anything to do with uniforms. The formulation is based on the standardized military symbols used to indicate different forces on maps. In this system, the color blue is used for friendly forces, red for hostile forces, green for neutral forces, and yellow for unknown forces. Thus, blue-on-blue shootings are incidents in which members of the same force fire on one another.

      What green on blue means is a bit more complicated. In addition to Afghanistan, green on blue has also been used in the context of Iraq; US General Raymond Odierno referred to the threat of “green-on-blue attacks” by Iraqi security forces on US personnel in Iraq in 2009 (Politico, 28 May). It would seem that in the context of the Iraq and Afghanistan, the local security forces are regarded as neutral, or green: not hostile, but not fully allies, either.

  11. I have not formed an opinion on this, but I will pass along a handful of admittedly disjointed thoughts:

    — Whatever Lindsey is up to, I think it was planned when he played a round of golf with DPJT several weeks ago. Thus, I am not going to jump on Lindsey too much for seeming to confront PDJT. I think it is all part of the plan.
    — I watched (part of) the Putin interview Daughn posted several days ago, and in it he said something interesting. Russia is building relationships with various countries in the Middle East, but will not support one in a fight against another. I think he may have been telling Turkey and Syria and Iran that if any of them picks a fight with another, they should not expect Russia to help them.
    — Forced to fight without US support, Turkey might well reveal itself to be weaker militarily than many have thought. Its ground units appear to consist primarily of poorly trained Muslim fanatics.
    — Forced to fight without Russian support, Syria is also likely to be unimpressive.
    — The Kurds are organized and fight well, but lack the strength of a nation state. In particular, with limited air cover, they remain vulnerable. Living in peace within Syria, and cutting a deal with Turkey that protects Kurds in Turkey (other than the PKK), might not be a bad alternative, particularly if they can obtain a decent slice of the oil revenues from reserves on lands in Syria that have traditionally been Kurdish lands. This would avoid the mess we created in the aftermath of undermining Iraq and killing Sadam.
    — I wonder if DPJT forsees the possibility that Turkey might break up into pieces if it does not act carefully here. If a large scale attack on Syria might lead to this, for example, it could create the conditions for the creation of a Kurdistan carved from southern Turkey (and perhaps a return to Christian hands of Constantinople).
    — I suspect the admonition from PDJT about protecting captured ISIS fighters was insincere. It would not surprise me if they were slaughtered as part of this. To the extent that European ISIS fighters are killed, they had the change to get their people out and declined.
    — I suspect too that there may be more than a few embedded deep state actors who are hoping to stir up trouble, who are also likely to find themselves caught in the crossfire.

        “Russia is building relationships with various countries in the Middle East, but will not support one in a fight against another. I think he may have been telling Turkey and Syria and Iran that if any of them picks a fight with another, they should not expect Russia to help them.”

        That is a lot like Trump. The Endless War Party is obviously not going to like that part. Things are making sense.

          1. Oh, yes – war is definitely not something the Russians are going to spend money they don’t have on. But I also think Putin is NO DUMMY and he’s modeling on Trump. I think he AGREES with Trump in many ways – but from a “Russia First” perspective. Meanwhile, both Trump and Putin allow the American Fake News to keep chasing the false realities that they are tasked to chase, without worrying about making any correction, as the press discredits itself.

            Economic diplomacy is WORKING.
