Now that we've all had the opportunity to settle back into a little sense of normalcy since millions of 'peacenik Trump supporters' were suddenly ripped out of our perceived 'safe spaces', we'll take a look at several new stories and theories from across the internet that take a deeper look at what just happened in Syria, and the massive response from many Trump supporters, analyzed through Sun Tzu's legendary book 'The Art Of War'.
Yet as Paul Joseph Watson recently tweeted, while he's unhappy with Trump's actions in Syria, he's not going to suddenly stop supporting Trump on other important issues. As anybody knows who's been through bumpy times in a good relationship, everything isn't always smooth sailing. And while it sure appears to many, including myself at first, that Trump may have sold us out and we've been fooled again, a much bigger and much more complicated battle is clearly unfolding. As we hear in the first video below from Watson, was the Syria strike lunacy...or genius?
As Steve Quayle has warned us, we're clearly watching a spiritual battle unfolding so maybe, just maybe, everything isn't really now exactly as it appears. As Scott Adams, the creator of the cartoon strip Dilbert, stated in his most recent story, "President Trump just solved for the allegation that he is Putin’s puppet. He doesn’t look like Putin’s puppet today. And that was Trump’s biggest problem, which made it America’s problem too."
Adams also stated that while he's not at all happy with Trump's decision to take action against Syria in such a manner, he may have just solved numerous nagging problems all at once, and far more dangerous ones. From China to North Korea to Iran, anybody who'd been thinking that the military weakness shown by America during the presidency of Barack Obama would carry over to Trump also just got a very rude awakening.
“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”
“Supreme excellence consists of breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.”
“The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.”
“To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.”
The overall long-term best outcome for the Middle East and the world is a peace agreement reached between the US, Russia, Syria, Israel, Iran and all nations and the elimination of ISIS allowing Syrian refugees to return home. The overall best outcome for America is a North Korea that wouldn't even DREAM about launching an attack upon us. For many decades, there have been those who've stood in between peace being accomplished in the Middle East while they were arming terrorists. While we won't hold our breaths waiting for it, what if this strike upon Syria helps Trump to accomplish all of those goals at once?
While most keyboard pundits have very little idea what REALLY goes on behind the scenes on the world stage, what if the strikes on Syria were elaborately staged with the participation of even Russia and Syria with the intention of showing Trump as ruthless to our enemies? We know for a fact that the Pentagon notified Russia ahead of the strike - do we think that Russia didn't notify the Syrian govt as well? As this new story from the Daily Mail reports, the Syrian government knew that America was about to strike as well. Where'd the 'element of suprise' go if severe damage was intended?
While suddenly even much of the mainstream media and the neocons are approving of Trump, Kim Jong Un may be thinking of going into hiding. Has Trump just pulled off the equivalent of a 'Pick Six', winning several wars without even having to go to battle? If so, and he's able to accomplish long-lasting peace in the Middle East and with Russia and manages to get Kim out of thinking about EMP'ing America, I'll happily wear egg on my face.
As we see in these other recent stories from across the internet, everything for America is now at stake. The April 3rd story from John Whitehead over at the Rutherford Institute (dedicated to the defense of civil liberties and human rights) is called "When Government Evil Triumphs, Freedom Falls" within which Whitehead reports the government of the US has become indistinguishable from the evil which it is supposed to stand against. Warning in his story that if we continue to watch this spread of US government evil, our human rights will continue to be extinguished, he also shows us what Trump is up against and why we need to continue to be extremely vigilant.:
It is often said that if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.
Unfortunately, the American government has been the opposite of good for too long now.
In fact, the American government has been very, very, very bad: so bad, in fact, as to be almost indistinguishable at times from the evil it claims to be fighting, whether that evil takes the form of terrorism, torture, drug trafficking, sex trafficking, murder, violence, theft, pornography, scientific experimentations or some other diabolical means of inflicting pain, suffering and servitude on humanity.
Philosopher Susan Neiman suggests that referring to something as “evil is a way of marking the fact that it shatters our trust in the world.” It’s an apt description for a government that keeps violating the sacred trust of its citizenry.
In another 'worst case scenario', according to this new story from Paul Craig Roberts, President Donald Trump has already surrendered to the 'deep state' and is no longer in control of America. Roberts, the former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for President Ronald Reagan, warns us in his story there is now nobody in the Trump White House to stop the death-and-war-hungry DC establishment that America had believed we had voted out by electing Trump.
In the cartoon at the top of this story from GRRRGraphics, Rand Paul repeats Trump's own words to Barack Obama to him on his right shoulder while on his left, Senator John McCain represents the interests of the 'deep state' America had hoped we'd gotten rid of. Garrison's art and blog entry sums up what millions of Americans were feeling:
There’s just no way around it. Trump’s action in Syria disappointed me greatly. Before he was elected he claimed he didn’t want to be the world’s policeman. He wasn’t going to be ‘president of the world.’ My cartoon has Rand repeating Trump’s words to Obama.
Did Trump forget his own advice? Apparently. He just bombed Syria to punish Assad, who almost certainly did not use poison gas on civilians as the mainstream media claims. Why would Assad make such a drastic mistake? More likely, it was poison gas held by ISIS in a nearby warehouse. They probably got it from our ally who loves to fund radical Islam: Saudi Arabia.
Lies and false flags are now routinely used to draw us into war and strip us of our liberties. The gassing strikes me as an excuse to distract from the Rice scandal as well as get Trump to get more aggressive toward Russia. It’s a bad sign when warmongering Neocons such as McCain are praising the bombing. Even CNN applauded it. A very bad sign indeed. They wanted Hillary who would be more than happy to carry out their endless wars. She enjoys a good cackle after killing people.
President Trump, we did not elect you to carry on status quo policies that include even more useless wars in the middle east and the lies used to start them. We especially don’t want WWIII with Russia. We don’t need another cold war with them either. They should be our allies in the war against Muslim terrorism.
Why can’t we concentrate on our own problems? We need to rebuild our infrastructure. We need more jobs and less taxes. We need to end Obama care. We need to build that wall. We need to wrest power away from the deep state and return it to We The People. President Trump, forget about bombing the middle east. Stop trying to control the world. Instead, please concentrate on making America great again.
The Roberts story goes on to report Washington DC getting 'taken out' would be their 'just desserts' and "it couldn’t happen to a more deserving people, including the British, French, German, and Italian governments who quickly and obediently gave their approval to Washington’s war crime against Syria, as did the US-installed president of the European Council, Donald Tusk, a vassal of evil."
While those stories offer us a very worst case scenario of the events that we've been witnessing recently and a look at an absolutely tragic worst-case scenario of what America could look like, if everything we're watching now from the Trump administration and on the world stage somehow leads the world to a lasting peace rather than a devastating world war, 59 tomahawk missiles raining down on a runway in Syria will be long forgotten.
