Donald Trump looks like just another cog in the “good-old” war machine of the United Corporations of America promoting military spending and armed conflict around the clock. This fact could not be truer after the recent hiring of John Bolton, Pompeio, and the constant praise for Nikki Haley while letting criminals like Kissinger still sit around at the table – even if they are not advising the president – directly at least – anymore.
Donald Trump, a War Pig, who is going to spend $686 billion in the fiscal year of 2018, just for war (defense) spending which will take up more than 54% of the annual federal budget. The U.S. war machine couldn’t even swallow this year’s budget yet, but he is already asking for substantially more, $716 billion for 2019, aiming to make the United States not the policeman, but the marshal of the world. To complete this great, greatly insensible effort Trump will add $683 billion over the next decade to the U.S. military budget.
Instead of investigating and addressing how the Pentagon and various other agencies and corporations of the military industrial complex cannot account for, or as they say – ‘misspent’ $21 Trillion dollars, Donald is shoving more money onto the fire. This amount equates to the current U.S. national debt. Neo-con warmongers rejoice!
Defenders, or as anybody should rather say, apologists of Donald Trump still fail to condemn the two illegal and unconstitutional strikes on Syria and the recent false allegations by the White House and the (
There is no reason to bring up Hillary Clinton in this discussion with all those “would be”s or “would have been”s, because she is not the president of the U.S. and she will never be president anyway. We should rather focus on making sure that Trump as president will make good decisions and enact good policies rather than worrying about “ifs”, “buts” or Hillary Clinton. MAGA supporters should understand that they can disagree with the policies of Barack Obama without supporting all acts of Trump. They can agree with Trump’s first move to abolish sanctuary cities without supporting his foreign policy.
Hopefully, the alternative media will wake up before it’s too late. Most preferably much sooner than Trump is out of office, and exposes what is happening on both sides of the Atlantic exposing wrongdoings in the United States, in the European Union, in the Russian Federation and in the People’s Republic of China. It is ironic that most alternative media outlets and personas claim themselves to be “unbiased” and “unaligned” while all they do is to create a new mainstream media, the only difference being between the old and them is the new faces that the latter brings.
So far, all “hype trains” have crashed. This is not a general rule, this is the law of the hype trains. Hype trains are hyping products (No Man’s Sky, Fallout 4, Mass Effect: Andromeda, etc.) and people up creating such unattainable expectations under which they will, by rule and not by exception, fail. The Trump train being a hype train could be no exception.
I personally fear that if the United States loses its grip as the leading world superpower, China or Russia will take its place and become the “new” United States of America acting in the same manner without any regards to anybody else that includes their own citizens.
Only a few leaders have condemned these back-and-forth blows, which shows the sad state our world is currently in right now. For evidence, you just need to look at the Russian Victory Day celebrations where Netanyahu was walking along president Vladimir Putin, like he owns the place, while president Assad is now being denied from buying Russian S-300 missile systems and is struggling to arm his soldiers who are currently using Chinese-made and supplied Type-56s which are sub-par in terms of quality and reliability, and whatever ancient armored vehicle they could get their hands on. China along with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Iran are purchasing more advanced S-400 systems from Russia and most of these orders are currently being delivered.
The mentioned Israeli attacks were launched after Syria launched rockets against Israel which came as a response to a previous Israeli attack. The Golden Heights region, a Syrian territory was illegally annexed by Israel because of the Golden Height’s great regional importance. It is critical for a modern country because of it’s a major source of drinkable water in the region.
Israel has launched several strikes against Syria during recent years, Bibi claims that they act on their right “self-defense”, a factually non-existent international right, which is being utilized as a reason why they can launch the most advanced rocket in response to small arms fire. According to them only the U.S. and Israel can practice this non-existent right. Bibi and his Zionist government fail to mention such requirements as “proportionality” and the ban on engaging non-combatants in connection with their attack along with the illegal nature of their behavior. The opposition to Netanyahu in the Israeli parliament, the faction which wanted Netanyahu tried for corruption allegations, applauded the Israeli missile attacks targeting Syria. This proves that there is no real opposition in the Israeli parliament.
It is currently unclear what Russia wants really to do in Syria after its air defenses failed to intercept Israeli missiles – on purpose. Last week they had deployed their new Uran-9 robotic tank in Syria, most likely to test its combat capabilities. The Iranian government recently alleged that Israel sells defense secrets of U.S. weapons to the Russian Federation, and in return, Russia sells out its own air defense secrets to Israel including codes for Iranian defense systems.
These revelations cannot come really as a surprise after Russia has betrayed its mutual defense pact with Iraq, and Russia along with China failed to veto the resolution in the Security Council of the United Nations on the 2011 intervention in Lybia against the Muammar Gaddafi government (UN SC Resolution No. 1973). Just after hours of the enforcement of the no-fly zone over Lybia the attacks commenced by U.S., French, and British warplanes. These embarrassingly uncomfortable facts are being constantly ignored in both the Western and the Eastern media.
EDIT: On the other hand, if Russia would have responded and tried to defend Iraq, it wouldn’t have survived. In the first years after 2000, the Russian Federation was weak and it was recovering from the collapse of the USSR. Its military was virtually non-existent and it took another decade to make a recovery.
The Russian government sent mixed signals regarding the Russian-manufactured anti-missile system destroyed in the attack which did not engage incoming Israeli missiles – most likely deliberately. A Russian missile platform was destroyed with some – if not all – of its crew in the same missile attack. While the Russian Ministry of Defense back in April had claimed that “Pantsir-S1 Repelling US Strikes on Syria Showed 100% Effectiveness.”, it really begs the question of what happened during the very recent Israeli strikes targeting Syrian and allegedly Iranian targets in Syria. A Russian ex-commander in chief has said to RT, that either its ammunition ran dry, it was turned off or it wasn’t set up properly. Since the Syrian and Israeli military had been trading strikes prior to this incident for days, it is very unlikely that it was not loaded or set up properly. The Israeli Minister of Defense said that Israel has “an open line” and they “really do have discourse” with their Russian counterparts. “What’s important to us is that the defensive weapons the Russians are giving Syria won’t be used against us,” – Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman. By the looks of it, there are reasons to believe that the Russian-made defense systems were remotely deactivated during the attack. If this is true, this will not be exposed by the mainstream media (Western or Russian), because their governments have no intention to shoot down Israeli missiles launched against Syria.
EDIT: Today Bashar al-Assad met Vladimir Putin and Assad looked very happy. During the meeting, he had a bigger smile on his face than Netanyahu while the Israeli leader was listening to the opening ceremony of the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem.
EDIT: Researching this topic just a little bit more provides a little insight into what really happens in the background. As you probably new previously, Israel possesses 200-400 nuclear warheads according to the Pentagon and is the only nuclear power in the Middle East. Even the remote possibility of Iran ever producing a working nuclear weapon is so feared by Israel that they cannot let that happen. On the other side, according to the mainstream media, Iran has No Right to fear Israel’s 200-400 nuclear weapons pointed at major Iranian cities. Furthermore, Israel had the audacity to threaten other nations, including European Union member states, such as France and Germany with nuking their capitals if they don’t come to the aid of Israel if a war in the near future would erupt when the existence of the (illegal) ‘Jewish state’ would be endangered.
Going back to the United States, it looks like that Trump completely ignores the USS Liberty incident, in which approx. 300 Americans were targeted who were serving on the USS Liberty when it was torpedoed by Israel, attacked by unmarked Israeli fighter jets, being shot at by multiple Israeli torpedo boats while their ship was napalmed by Israeli warplanes. All of this was done deliberately under the Israeli High Command trying to wipe out the crew of the ship in order to rally public support from the United States against a completely innocent Arab nation, in this case on Egypt. Meanwhile, the 6th Fleet had explicit orders from the White House not to go to their aid and stop the attacks.
It is clear the nobody who attributes any moral value to oneself and has self-integrity can align oneself with a nation or a group of individuals who have done such brutal acts deliberately. In this case, attacking an allied ship to cause massive suffering and kill its crew off. Furthermore, they had the audacity of not confessing to their wrongdoings, but instead getting officials of the United States to blackmail the crew of the ship with a fine of $10,000 and or 10 years imprisonment to shut them up for good. Naturally, CIApedia (Wikipedia) is still promoting the official falsehoods and deception.
AIPAC, The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-Israeli lobbying group with over 100,000 members and a reported budget of $77 billion is hard at work, just like ever since it was created, buying American politicians and judges by the dozen to make them represent “Israeli interests”.
Zionism has gotten so far, that in the recent days South Carolina has enacted a new law which makes criticizing Israel and its ruthless policies in schools and universities illegal deeming it “anti-semitic”. Many influencers spoke out against this new piece of legislation.
Instead of resisting these people, condemning their actions and going against their agendas, Donald Trump has decided to play along with them and relocate the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, de facto the U.S. declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel, consequently making the two-state solution impossible. Many Palestinians were standing on the sidelines watching the hostile apartheid state, under the name Israel, taking the last acres of their once sovereign country away, a country which was and is forsaking them by stripping their rights away and abusing young and old alike.
Furthermore, there are unclassified official documents exposing a possible Zionist plot against the life of John F. Kennedy (page 64) in response to his orders regarding the inspection of Lybian nuclear facilities. Of course, this is just a possibility, although during the last hundred years Zionist-sponsored terrorism, political assassinations (Aldo Moro, Alexander II of Russia), and Zionist terrorists weren’t rare at all. Isis fighters ‘attacked Israel Defense Forces unit, then apologised’
Clashes with police and the Israeli “Defence” Force has resulted in 60 (reported) Palestinian casualties. All this was done one the accord of the administration of the United States, spearheaded by Donald Trump. A few hours later, Trump has commented “big day for Israel” on Twitter.
This is what success looks like to Trump.
While things in Israel are in disarray for Palestinians, Ethiopian Jews, Palestinian Jews and anti-Zionist Jews during legal protests being beaten by Zionist police on the street, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia is trying to solidify its place by achieving an oil price of $120 a barrel.
These War Pigs are the allies of the current administration of the United States of America. The complete disregard for human life and dignity is prevalent here. The same can be said of Donald Trump’s views of torture and of the recent advertising of Gina Haspel to the spot of CIA director, a simple torturer who is lying his way out of difficult questions or just straight up refuses to answer them. Tump: “Gina Haspel did a spectacular job today. There is nobody even close to run the CIA!” (twitter)
It is not just in Syria Trump has failed. Being a ‘good businessman’ he is reaping the benefits of the opium trade using U.S. and U.K. troops as guards on opium plantations, forcing locals to cultivate poppy seeds and produce opium.
Syria, Afganistan, Iraq, and Kuwait are still occupied by the U.S. military and there are no plans on the horizon to pull the troops out from these countries.
The treatment of Julian Assange is a good example of what happens to the defectors and vocal critics of Western and Eastern governments. A former leader of WikiLeaks and now a prisoner of the Ecuador embassy in London which denies any connection to the outer world from him, including letters and phone calls to relatives. Ecuador has spent millions of dollars to spy on him already, while Assange is being denied
There is no way the American public would endure the assassination of another president after Abraham Lincoln and JFK, so most of Trump’s concerns over an attempt on his life are unfounded. If Trump “had to be taken out” it will be his policies and his character which will be assassinated.
The two Presidents of the United States, one of them being Donald Trump and another one, the individual who is pulling the strings, who shall remain by the bidding of the financial and corporate elite in secret, away from the eyes of the overworked indebted American public.
Trump is currently following the sad, destructive and imperialist direction of the foreign and domestic policy of all administrations since JFK. So far, he has not deviated from the imperialist aspirations of the United States and made very important matters just worse, like the U.S. national and household debt, because of not acting swiftly on the behalf of the American people. He is continuing his election campaign on corporate news networks and failing to offer the American people substantially different from the administrations of Barack Obama, George Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon and Lyndon B. Johnson.
Donald Trump, just like many previous U.S. presidents, doesn’t understand what John F. Kennedy, to his credit, understood really well.
