War Proponents, Democrats Included, Want Trump to Hit Syria

With not an ounce of evidence the world once again points a finger at Syria.

In response to a clear false flag event in which Assad is alleged to have gassed his own people, unthinking fools on the left and right want Trump to do something.

Guradig writer Matthew d'Ancona moans Don’t Expect the West to Act on Syria’s Latest Horror.

Conscience has become the mayfly of our era: here today, gone tomorrow. For the moment, the world is transfixed by the horrific images from Douma, near the Syrian capital, Damascus. Dozens have died, and hundreds lie injured after what was quite clearly a chemical weapon attack.

Dead children, their mouths flecked with foam, chide us through our screens. Condemnation, calls for action, a global spasm of what Martin Amis calls “species shame”: the pattern of response to the long Syrian catastrophe has become almost ritualised.

Another Rush to Judgement

Fools like d'Ancona demand action, with no evidence as to who did what.

And curiously, this attack happened right as Trump announced he was pulling out of Syria.

Evidence?

Who needs evidence? Warmongers don't need no stinkin evidence. On the rare occasions they decide evidence is necessary, they make it up or plant a false flag.

War Cries

Media Misses the Point

The Syrian Army in a little more than a month liberated over 90% of the East Ghouta pocket with ease, so why at the final hurdle with every advantage in their favor, would they resort to chemical weapons. The corporate media portrays the Syrian authorities as acting irrationally without thought to consequences, but rather, there has been many examples where Syria could have deployed such weapons to preserve their own soldiers, but has opted not to and risked further casualties to ensure that civilians face minimal harm in any operation.

We must also question why the Syrian air force never put their alarm systems on red alert if they had conducted such an attack. US President Donald Trump has proven he is willing to conduct missile attacks against the Syrian military when mere accusations that it conducted chemical weapon attacks has occurred as the the raid on the Shayrat Airbase on April 6, 2017 just days after the Khan Sheikhoun incident demonstrates. This would be a careless move by the Syrian government, especially just days after Trump announced he wants to withdraw the US military from Syria.

It is known the deep state of the US does not want a military withdrawal from Syria; such an incident could force Trump to stay in Syria despite his openness that he does not want this.

In addition, we must also question why these attacks always seem to kill women and children and never terrorists. The Syrian military takes every precaution that civilians are not killed, so much so that the Syrian government for weeks has been trying to bring a peaceful resolution to Duma, even allowing terrorists to take up amnesty with zero repercussions for their crimes or to be transported to another part of Syria with guaranteed safety, just as their allies in Harasta and other parts of East Ghouta successfully took up.

The article asks "Why is it such a far fetched idea to the corporate media that the terrorists could have conducted this latest atrocity?"

Indeed, it's extremely unlikely this incident is anything but a false flag operation by Al Qaeda rebels seeking to oust Assad.

Mike "Mish" Shedlock

We're outraged over what happens in Syria, while the same thing is happening in Yemen without a peep. Anyone with half a brain can see we don't care about ME civilians and any stance we take in support of ME civilians is total BS. Problem is the majority of the people don't even have half a brain.

"The Syrian Army in a little more than a month liberated over 90% of the East Ghouta pocket with ease, so why at the final hurdle with every advantage in their favor, would they resort to chemical weapons." Logically, they wouldn't. The claim that they did, smells fishy. "Media Misses the Point". The media is propaganda, so they are not missing any point. They are willing participants.

So, why can't all the popular bloggers, who understand this is simplistic propaganda, coordinate a well-synchronized caravan and occupy DC? They could even add a few more items to the agenda that the majority would agree on, like: throw banksters in jail, prosecute anti-trust laws in the health care industry, balance budget amendment, and short term-limits. One could argue that every patriotic American has a duty to do something, but bloggers already have a sufficient following, that when combined, could at least get the ball rolling.

Trump has ceded Syria to Putin and Assad, anything he does now is symbolic. Clinton-style Democrats (Hawks) are seizing on this. The media pulls this story out routinely on slow news nights or when the admin wants to misdirect news from another issue (tariffs and trade wars) but the WH is in chaos so I doubt that. Trump will never get reelected and he may be impeached. He is the Republican flip side of the Carter Admin, one term, notable for their personality and not their accomplishments. Russia Gate may not be the smoking gun but it casts this president in a weak light and even spineless Democrats are jumping on the bandwagon. America's Malaise2 .,,,

Assad is already winning bigly, so why would he jeopardize this by using chemical weapons and incurring the wrath of other countries?

Russia Gata is a complete farce. As for being perceived as weak, the voters in both parties our tired of none stop war. This is one of the reasons Trump won the republican party. He called the stupidity of the Iraq war and rightly called Bush 2nd a liar. Case closed- Perpetual war is supported by the beltway group think.

as a vet, I cant help but notice that some of the loudest war voices are also draft dodgers from my generation. Tough guy Trump couldnt serve because of a sore foot.
