You know how it goes…it’s late Friday afternoon – you’re tired, it’s been a long week being the POTUS but you’re bored – so what do you do to kick off the weekend with a bang? Aw, snap! You get on the phone with other idiot leaders in France and the UK, call in a couple of swamp dwellers in your administration, a couple of generals and do something like this…
A hundred or so missiles fired on a sovereign nation, based on a Washington dream, is a good enough reason for a bit more destruction. Evidently, the last 17 years of Washington’s destruction brought upon sovereign nations in the Middle East in living color just isn’t enough for these a-holes.
And after the deed was done, Trump went to the propaganda outlets to declare the mission was “perfect”!
His “victory” speech congratulating all participants doing their part in spreading Western splendor, one that was filled with lies, lies and more lies…all within 7 minutes, was quite touching, if one relishes living in a perverted state of mind, which seems to be the norm for Trump and his administration.
Lies can be made to sound so noble – “The purpose of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons.” Right!
Ahmet Uzumcu, director general of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, reported that all chemical weapons had been removed from Syria. “Never before has an entire arsenal of a category of weapons of mass destruction been removed from a country experiencing a state of internal armed conflict, and this has been accomplished within very demanding and tight time frames.” https://www.military.com/daily-news/2014/06/24/last-of-syrias-chemical-weapons-removed.html – via paulcraigroberts.com
In fact, it (Syria) gave up all its chemical weapons in 2014, as confirmed by the OPCW. As the BBC reported in June of that year,
The last of Syria’s declared chemical weapons have been shipped out of the country for destruction, the international watchdog OPCW says.
“The ship has just left the port,” the head of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, Ahmet Uzumcu, said in The Hague. via activist post.com
But what weasels in Washington can be bothered with the truth? None of them.
The little boys with their destructive toys managed to launch 103 missiles at 3 targets, and if getting a different perspective from the victory speeches from Trump and the Pentagon, many of those missiles were intercepted before reaching their targets by Syrian air defense systems.
Now imagine, if you can, you’re watching your country’s air defense system launching missiles to intercept incoming missiles into YOUR neighborhood in the dead dark of the morning. Can’t imagine it…neither can I, but there’s video of what it’s like to watch outbound missiles launched from Damascus to intercept Washington and the West’s incoming insanity here.
But God bless America, the Washington lunatics secured American’s safety once again. And if you don’t believe it, just listen to them – they’ll tell you. Just like they told us that they have the evidence of the hocus-pocus chemical attacks…but aw, shucks, just can’t give it to us because it’s classified.
But don’t worry, it’s not like we’re going to get our hair mussed by Washington’s continued insanity…
With the dawn of each day, thinking Americans wake up and are grateful that Russia has the patience, the compassion, the sanity to keep their wits and not act as Washington acts. If they did, only God knows where each of us might be. But if Washington and the West keep poking, keep up with their excursions of visiting death and destruction upon innocents, it might not be long before we here in America get to experience the joys the Syrians (and many others) have experienced from Washington and the West, hoping our country gives enough of a shit about us to intercept the incoming karma Washington has sown.
But don’t hold your breath. If you’re looking for sanity and an antiwar sentiment from the mainstream media propaganda outlets, think again:
Few to No Anti-Bombing Voices as Trump Prepared to Escalate Syria War
On the issue of launching airstrikes against the Assad government, robust debate is nonexistent. Major publications take the bulk of the premises for war for granted—namely the US’s legal and moral right to wage it—and simply parse over the details (FAIR.org, 4/12/18). The Washington Post editorial board (4/9/18), unsatisfied with what they view as token airstrikes, calls for Trump to not just launch “a few cruise missiles,” but for a “concerted strategy” of open-ended “US military initiatives.” This, of course, includes additional permanent military bases scattered throughout Syria.
So, while good citizens of the world, particularly in Syria, rejoice that they have survived yet another of Washington’s demonic free-for-all, we too celebrate that they are still alive and able to dance for another day. How long the world will be “granted” another day to live, considering the insanity of Washington…is anyone’s guess.
