5 POSSIBLE EXPLANATIONS FOR TRUMP’S REMARKS ON SYRIA.


Comment By Michael Rivero: "Ivanka Trump, a word, please, and I am begging you on this: do not allow your dad, our President to "swallow the Koolaid" on this issue.

In a Russian brokered deal in 2013, all of Syria's chemical weapons were destroyed. Syria's chemical weapons were destroyed And the big, logical question is, qui bono?!? Who benefits?!? And it surely as heck is not Bashar Al Assad, when Rex Tillerson said a couple of days ago, that Assad could remain, and our major headache in Syria was ISIS. So who benefits?!?

1. The jihadists who were armed by the previous administration, who did this as a "false flag" to get your Dad angry enough against the Al-Assad government to start talking regime change.

2. The war hawks in this administration who want to see the US military do a decap strike against Damascus, which will almost inevitably lead to war with Russia. And Ms. Trump, this would be a very lousy idea, and for the following reasons; in its current state, the US military does not have the troop strength; the weaponry; the manufacturing; or the money to insure a positive outcome to a war against Russia over Syria.

The weapons manufacturing culture in this country has to change; it should not longer be acceptable to deliver weapons so behind the curve that by the time they are field deployed, they are obsolete, and have incredible cost over-runs attached.

Russia and China are getting far better value for their weaponry dollars than does the US military, and I have one big, fat example to share with you on this; the F-35. The Pentagon's New List of F-35 Bugs Is Predictably Awful Our American military should no longer have to put up with flying turkeys like this, and if corporate heads need to roll to cure this, so be it!
