Now that the Tomahawk missiles are flying, the “liberal” media suddenly sees Trump as “PRESIDENTIAL.” Go figure. Of course, this escalation with Russia is what the establishment has been clamoring for all along, why they preferred Sec. Clinton over that “isolationist” Donald Trump, to begin with. And why they kept pushing the “Russian hacking” blather, to put Trump on his heels and force him to prove otherwise.
And now that the major impediments, like Gen. Flynn, have been removed and replaced with establishment-approved hawks, HERE WE GO!!!
Are there any genuine liberals left in America? Am I the only one who has a problem with this? Or does everyone simply swallow the CIA-MSM shyte-crock that Assad, the most popular political leader in Syria and the most conspicuous protector of Syrian minorities, “gassed his own people” — even though the evidence far more clearly implicates the Washington-backed Salafist militants that Assad’s been fighting over the last six years? (Even President Obama in 2013 had his doubts about the “Assad used chemical weapons” claim, after his National Security Adviser, Tom Donilon, told him that the case was not remotely a “slam dunk.” And, unlike today, Assad’s chemical weapons stocks in 2013 hadn’t been completely dismantled by the international community…)
My memory must be fading (someone help me out, here): Where have we heard this type of warmongering “WMD” claim before? Only with more evidence supporting it… (because, unlike Bashar al-Assad, Saddam actually had, at one point, “gassed his own people” — only that was back in the 1980s, with Washington’s unwavering support, with Hussein using the WMD the West had supplied him… before the 1990s inspections regime left him toothless enough to invade and lynch…)
In 2017, have Americans not had enough bloodshed, lynch-mob executions, and mass-murder of Muslims? Should we simply make the new motto of the U.S. “We came, we saw, he died”? (Why not? That kind of thing never blows back at the source… right? What’s blowback? Or karma? Or the law of reciprocity? Or the principle stating that every action has an equal and opposite reaction?)
Some of our very best, most highly acclaimed, and consistently brilliant journalists have been reporting on the REALITY in Syria for years, where the U.S. and its GCC allies have been flooding a sovereign nation — at peace, before we started all this — with legions of al Qaeda and countless weapons. I know that many of you are fairly invested in the establishment’s version of events, but why not give Pulitzer-winner Seymour Hersh’s reporting a glance? Unlike the MSM, Hersh hasn’t been feeding you a steady diet of propaganda for the last few decades, the vast majority of which has turned out to be 100% false.
And unlike the MSM, Hersh is no fan of war. He’s covered too many of them. Honestly.
