Trump on Syria Withdrawal: We give Israel $4.5 billion every year, they’ll be good

Mankind has been manipulated to become “unconscious” through the use of programming by media and politics. ~ Vladimir Putin

“The president made an enormous commitment to take down the caliphate, and that has been achieved,” he told NPR’s Morning Edition. “We now have the …. counterterrorism battle — not only against ISIS but against al-Qaida and others.”

The caliphate hahaha!  A caliphate represents the entire Muslim peoples in the world. Like the Pose represents Catholics.  The “Islamic state” is a western band of hired mercenaries! Whether ISIS-al-Qaida comes or goes, and where they come and go depends on whether or not Trump is going to fund them. If Trump drops it’s funding after troop withdrawal then terrorists are out all except Israel. And if Israel was in any way unhappy with Trump’s moves they would assassinate him unabashedly. There is a Zionist dastardly plan afoot.

US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that “we give Israel $4.5 billion” security every year, and so “Israel will be very good” even after the US withdrawal from Syria.

The comments, quoted by Haaretz, were made by Trump in reply to a question by reporters on how the US withdrawal from Syria will impact Israel.

“I spoke with Bibi. I told Bibi, you know we give Israel 4.5 billion dollars a year. And they are doing very well at defending themselves,” the President said as he spoke to reporters on the way back from his surprise trip to American troops stationed in Iraq.


“Imperialism Has No Friends” 

Trump took this withdrawal step just as the Turkish autocrat Recep Tayyip Erdogan was intensifying his threats of annihilation against the Kurds in Rojava, announcing another invasion of Northern Syria. A few hours earlier we learned that Washington had agreed to sell Patriot missiles worth 3.5 billion Dollars to Ankara – a transaction that had been a topic of debate for a long time. Thus, it looked as if a comprehensive Syria deal had been forged between Trump’s and Erdogan’s governments.


He added that “I’m the one that moved the embassy to Jerusalem. I was the one who was willing to do that. So that’s the way it is – we are going to take great care of Israel. Israel is going to be good. We give Israel 4.5 billion a year. And we give frankly a lot more than that if you look at the books. They’ve been doing a good job.”

During his trip to Iraq, Trump defended his decision to withdraw US troops from Syria, saying he had told his advisers “let’s get out of Syria,” but was persuaded to stay, before deciding last week to bring the 2,000 troops home.


10th anniversary of operation Cast Lead

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the horror inflicted on the people of the Gaza Strip when Israeli war planes launched massive airstrikes on the besieged strip. Nothing has changed! To add insult to injury, and because the so-called “International Community” did absolutely nothing to put an end to Israel’s war crimes, the latter repeated the attacks in 2012 and in 2014 killing more than 4,000 civilians and injuring tens of thousands.


“I think a lot of people are going to come around to my way of thinking. It’s time for us to start using our head,” the president said.

Trump said the United States would remain in Iraq, adding, “In fact, we could use this as the base if we wanted to do something in Syria.”

Earlier this week, at the weekly Cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made clear that the US decision to withdraw 2,000 troops from Syria “will not change our consistent policy: We will continue to act against Iran’s attempts to entrench itself militarily in Syria, and to the extent necessary, we will even expand our actions there.”

Human Zoos in the Age of Trump

Colonialism

So many decades later, it’s easy enough to condemn such offenses. More difficult and painful is to ask what injustices are happening now that we take to be as normal as human zoos (or the disempowerment of women and child slavery) were just a few generations ago. Is it the thoughtless annihilation of immeasurable species, the plundering of nature, the loss of wisdom stored for millennia by ethnic groups that are fast disappearing? Is it the punitive incarceration of millions, so many lives wasted?

Is it our incredibly counterproductive “war on drugs” that unnecessarily ravages cities, nations, and lives? Or our inability to rid ourselves of the plague of nuclear proliferation, the brutality of widespread hunger, America’s endless wars, the detention centers for immigrants and their children in this country, the spectacle of undocumented minors shut up in cages and crying for their parents, or the overflowing refugee camps elsewhere in the world?

And what of so many children displaced in their war-torn lands or incarcerated in poverty? Where is the indignation about them? Who marches to have them released from their structural captivity? And who even noticed the 10,000 children murdered or maimed in armed conflicts in 2017 alone, deaths invisible to us if you didn’t happen to catch a brief news item quickly forgotten?

In reality, those human zoos of the not-so-distant past pose a terrifying question for us: What everyday horrors of our world will our descendants look back on with disgust in the future? How, they will wonder, could their ancestors have been so blind as to condone such transgressions against humaneness and humanity?

Trump’s Foreign Policy Is In Service To Israel

Americans are so totally brainwashed by Israeli propaganda that there is no public restraint on Washington serving Israel’s interest.

Peter Jenkins, a former British ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency, expresses concerns about the decisions of France, Germany, and the UK to appease President Trump on fixing “flaws” in the Iranian nuclear agreement.

It is worth a read to see that the European governments are still Washington’s toadies despite the “hate Trump” attitude that allegedly prevails among Washington’s European vassals.

Readers need to understand that there are no flaws in the agreement. 

The allegation of “flaws” is an israeli orchestration in order to resurrect the attacks on Iran that the nuclear agreement terminated. What Trump is doing is appeasing Israel. Israel doesn’t want Iran to have long range missiles, non-nuclear ones, that enhance Iran’s defensive posture.

Bibi Manufactured Crisis

More importantly, Israel does not want to lose the nuclear weapons charge that Israel invented and hoped to use to have the US military destabilize Iran a la Iraq and Libya. Israel’s problem with Syria and Iran is that both countries support Hezbollah, the Lebanese militia that has twice driven the vaunted Israeli army out of southern Lebanon, territory Israel wants to occupy for the water resources. If Israel, armed as it is with the American Zionist Neoconservatives who control US foreign policy, can resurrect the Western attack on Iran, Israel can perhaps pressure Iran to abandon Hezbollah and Lebanon to Israel.

I am sometimes asked if I have any regrets about publishing our book. As of today, my only regret is that it is not being published now. After the humiliations that Obama has endured at the hands of the Israel Lobby and the Hagel circus, we would sell even more copies and we would not face nearly as much ill-informed criticism. — Stephen Walt, co-author of the book.

Americans are so totally brainwashed by Israeli propaganda that there is no public restraint on Washington serving Israel’s interest. And that is what Trump is doing. The tough guy is nothing but a panderer for Israel.

What is going on has nothing whatsoever to do with the Iranian nuclear or missile program. It has to do with Israel’s use of US power, including the intimidation power over Europe, to remove Iran as a constraint on Israeli expansion.

Of course, the UK diplomat probably knows this, but he also knows that he cannot say it without being read out of his career as an “anti-semite.”
