Irish Savant – Nov 16, 2020
“What Syria withdrawal? There was never a Syria withdrawal. When the situation in northeast Syria had been fairly stable after we defeated ISIS, [Trump] was inclined to pull out. In each case, we then decided to come up with five better arguments for why we needed to stay. And we succeeded both times. We were always playing shell games to not make clear to our leadership how many troops we had there.”
Thus said James Jeffrey, President Trump’s Special Representative For Syria Engagement in a recent interview following his retirement from public “service”.
Scandalous but not shocking. A blind dog could see that the ZioCon/MIC alliance was thwarting every move Trump made to withdraw American troops from foreign adventures. But it is shocking to think that a seditious traitor would admit his crimes in public secure in the knowledge that he’ll never be held to account in any way, certainly not by facing a firing squad as he would have in earlier times. Instead he preens before a fawning interviewer, will collect his gold-plated pension for betraying his country and become a well-paid talking-head for some “independent” ZioCon think-tank in due course.
Here’s another thing: Why in God’s name did Trump appoint him his Special Representative For Syria Engagement? He’s been an outspoken hawk on Syria (as is everyone taking the Israeli shekel) and was one of the signatories of the notorious Never Trump Letter four years ago. Which underlines the President’s greatest weakness by far: His appointments. From the beginning he’s surrounded himself with those opposed to his stated agenda, starting with Kushner, an Israeli-firster whose only interest in America lies in screwing whatever he can from it for himself and his co-ethnics and whose political and social positions have always been the polar opposite of Trump’s platform.
Having said that the appointment of Acting US Defense Secretary Christopher Miller breaks the mould. Miller has written to senior staff ordering the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. “The conflict isn’t over but all wars must end. We are not a people of perpetual war. It is the antithesis of everything for which we stand and for which our ancestors fought. All wars must end.” To which I can only respond – ‘good luck with that’. The Pentagon staff will yawn and wait him out. Unless of course Trump can get the election fraud overturned, at which point things could get very interesting. Could it be that he’ll fire all the traitors, replacing them with patriots at last?
It’s in the lap of the gods.
