During the campaign Donald Trump made some promises to the American people. Some he kept, some he is trying to keep but is being stymied by the morons in what we call Congress. Others, he has reneged on.
Trump said that his first instinct was not to engage in interventionism. Granted, this was kind of a nuanced statement but many of us believed that we would see the end of wars for no legitimate reason, and the end to bombing and killing around the world. His actions in the first few months of his administration, however, belie his earlier statements.
His actions with regard to foreign policy seem to line up with the agenda of the deep state. That is if you accept that the agenda is hegemony anywhere in the world that they choose.
If you do not believe in the “deep state”, here is a list of nations bombed by the United States. The list was taken from the internet and originates from a book by William Blum.
Korea and China 1950-53 (Korean War)
Lebanon 1983, 1984 (both Lebanese and Syrian targets)
El Salvador 1980s
Iraq 1991 (Persian Gulf War)
Bosnia 1994, 1995
Iraq 1991-2003 (US/UK on regular basis)
Somalia 2007-8, 2011
Yemen 2009, 2011
Libya 2011, 2015
For verification, you can google any on this list to get the full story. And believe it or not, this is just a partial list.
As for Trump’s actions, let’s start with the most recent. He has instituted sanctions against Venezuela and in a recent speech he said that nothing was off the table including use of the military. Are you kidding me?? Venezuela??
Now I see that Trump has added Venezuela to the travel ban list. Why all this? Well, the answer is simple. In 1989 Chavez was elected President of Venezuela and established a socialist form of government. One of his first acts was to nationalize many of the countries industries, including OIL. This meant that most of the oil revenue stayed in country rather than the other way around. Not only that but Chavez started acting independently rather than take orders from the U.S.
This put him on the deep state shit list. I remember war propaganda against Venezuela featured in the news at that time. But then Chavez got sick and died. However, his successor, Maduro apparently continued in a like manner.
So now we have the anti-Maduro propaganda from the main stream media who are nothing but a mouthpiece for the deep state or establishment. Such propaganda is usually a prelude to action and already sanctions have been imposed on Venezuela. The media says that Venezuelans are starving in the streets or walking to neighboring Colombia to get food; and it is all due to the evil, dictatorial regime (yes, Venezuela is experiencing economic problems and shortages for various reasons). But are things as bad as our media proclaims or just propaganda in support of some kind of intervention. Remember, Venezuela is said to have the largest oil reserves in the world.
An earlier action taken by Trump that conforms with the deep state agenda is when he gave General Mattis the go-ahead to send additional troops to Afghanistan. The number talked about is 4000 men. This is a war we have been in for sixteen years! It is not just a war but an occupation. This war, as well as actions taken in Iraq, Libya, and Syria were all planned long ago. If you could not figure it out for yourself, we have General Wesley Clark on record telling us here.
We are never going to completely leave Afghanistan. We will never walk away from the multi- million dollar bases we have constructed there. They will be used as a staging area for conflicts in the region.
Did you ever wonder why we went to Afghanistan? After all, we knew that 15 of the 19 airplane hijackers were Saudi Arabian but we went directly to Afghanistan. As the story goes, we went to capture Osama bin laden (who wasn’t there).
So we sent an entire army to the other side of the world to capture one man? I think not.
Another action that Trump took earlier was to lob missiles into Syria in a hasty response to a very possibly phony gas attack blamed on President Assad of Syria. Later reports indicated that the attacks may have been a setup or false flag operation. In April 2017, Assad was accused of using a chemical weapon (Sarin gas) that killed many civilians. This in spite of the fact that it is almost impossible to prove beyond a doubt who was responsible. Logic would suggest that Assad would not attempt another gas attack after being so condemned for earlier attacks ( 2013,2014, and 2015) when he is winning the war. Those who would benefit from this would be the rebels (Free Syrian Army and others) knowing and hoping that such an event would bring the U.S. back into the fray.
One of the latest explanations about what is currently going on in Syria (since Russia’s intervention on behalf of Syria put a stop to any successful assault by the U.S. proxy army) is an effort to balkanize Syria by carving out a piece of the country for the Kurds, thus further weakening Syria. The deep state never gives up and this plan, formulated by the U.S. and Israel, may be operational.
In the video below, listen to Syrian Girl explain. She has an interesting Youtube channel (she is also a hottie with a brain).
Trump seems to be playing into the hands of the deep state/globalists. I hope not.
