Wag the Dog: The Syrian Airstrike Charade

by | Apr 16, 2018 | Headline News | 33 comments

Do you LOVE America?


    The news is rife with the Syrian airstrikes and the theatrical narrative: the united coalition of brave allies against the despotic Assad to secure the blessings of liberty, etc., etc. The reality: The U.S. threw more than 100 missiles against soft Syrian targets with Britain firing rockets from four aircraft as France flew planes around and cruised the waters with a few ships. The target (a suspected but not verified chemical weapons facility) was destroyed…before chemical weapons use, or manufacture could be verified. Once again, the Western Hegemony “showed” that bad ‘ol puddy-tat, that anti-Saudi Arabian, anti-Petrodollar Assad…showed him that his “Clorox Bleach” assault on mannequins as verified by white hat “Light-Brite” technicians would not be tolerated! “Mission accomplished!” in the words of US President Donald Trump.

    Yet the brave allies didn’t screw with the Russians directly, now, did they? 

    If each of those Tomahawks cost an even $1 million, the US spent over $100 million plus the cost of the operation…five times that? More than half a billion dollars, right? To accomplish what?

    To accomplish much, in this order more or less:

    1. To wipe out any and all traces of an alleged chemical weapons facility to cover up the fact that there was never anything manufactured there and used against any civilians. The excellent tactical logic: We’ll use the guise that it poses a threat, blow it up, and we’ll use intelligence reports and a puppet (such as Dunsford) to say the threat was real…target destroyed, and nobody can prove otherwise.”
    2. Saudi Arabian Interests: Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge published an article on 4/15/18 “Overthrow the Syrian Regime, but Play Nice with Russia.” That article provides a copy of a Wikileaks cable released in 2015 by the Saudis specifically directing the US to carry out a regime change in Syria, without involving or instigating the Russians. Saudi Arabia has wanted this for years.
    3. “Justification” to do it again, but this time for an invasion…as Iran (the main target) cannot be taken without first taking or negating Syria.
    4. UK’s Theresa May is facing opposition for her Brexit position. Much in the manner that Thatcher’s sagging popularity in the early 1980’s was bolstered by the Falklands War; May’s hawkish stance helps her ratings.
    5. President Trump’s approval ratings are up.
    6. Deflects attention from the “Stormy” Daniels fiasco and the other woman involved with one of the President’s associates.
    7. Deflects attention from Mueller’s actions and the ongoing battle with the White House.
    8. Deflects attention from the fact that National Guard troops were deployed to the US border in keeping with the “in the interests of national security” mantra, but in direct violation of Posse Comitatus…for the real reason of conditioning and accustoming the American people to a “regular” sight of a military presence patrolling the streets of “Fisher Price Land.”
    9. Justification of continued troop presence, with naval and air assets remaining in the theatre until regime change in Syria is obtained.
    10. Justification of defense expenditures.

    There are plenty of sources that clearly point to all of this scripted orchestration by the coalition of allies. Hal Turner published a slew of photos showing canisters of chlorine gas found at the alleged Douma atrocity site…but the canisters were manufactured in Germany, not Syria. Durden’s previously-cited article has a collage of photos showing children laying on the ground for photos as “casualties” and then posing smiling with fake blood and makeup-created wounds. The photo shows casting photographers with film “takes” and a studio with costumes and makeup supplies.

    Something seriously “wrong” happened this past weekend. Quietly, almost unnoticed and certainly underreported, on Thursday, 4/12/18 an article surfaced entitled Lawmakers say Trump exploring rejoining Pacific trade talks, by Ken Thomas and Kevin Freking of the Associated Press.

    The Trans-Pacific Partnership surfacing again, eh?

    Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

    “I’m sure there are lots of particulars that they’d want to negotiate, but the president multiple times reaffirmed in general to all of us and looked right at Larry Kudlow and said, ‘Larry, go get it done,'” said Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb.

    Eleven countries signed the agreement last month. Trump’s rejection of the deal has rattled allies and raised questions at home about whether protectionism will impede U.S. economic growth.

    Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts, the chairman of the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee, said he was “very impressed” that Trump had assigned Kudlow and Lighthizer “the task to see if we couldn’t take another look at TPP. And that certainly would be good news all throughout farm country.”

    That last sentence was great, wasn’t it?

    “Good news all throughout farm country.”

    Have you ever heard a line so freaking ridiculous in all your life? What farm country? Is this “Senator” Roberts looking at one of those “Fisher Price” farms on his desk? The one with the barn that “moos” when you pull the barn door open? The one with all the happy, clean, interchangeable-body figures with hats, hair, and faces to differentiate them by their roles…farmer-father-figure, plastic-braided-hair farmgirl figure, etc.  A plastic cow with a tail that swivels, minus the dung. Plastic fences that bound the farm. And all the figurines fit neatly inside that cardboard silo with the metal bottom and the plastic cap.

    That “farm country” has been engulfed by Agribusinesses such as Cargill and Monsanto. Farms feeding the millions with produce harvested by illegal aliens and robots. These crooked, thieving politicians lie to our faces and paint a Potemkin picture for the camera and stage, while they roam the countryside in the night, pillaging and enslaving the country with rapacity and protected by immunity they conferred upon themselves. Last bill passed into law? People: They, the Congress, voted themselves pay raises, and bonuses!

    Obama’s TPP died by the President’s hand: now he’s pulling the stake out of its heart.

    So, as you may deduce, there is plenty to be seen behind the scenes while “Operation Clorox” was conducted in Syria. Examine the information before you take a drink of that Grape Kool-Aid and blindly fall for the rhetoric. The Deep State is fully in control and moving ahead with their own agenda. They just “wagged the dog” this past weekend, and not only did most Americans fall for it…all Americans paid for it as well. Eventually when the Globalists’ plans escalate further into war, payment will be rendered in lives.

      1. Can’t disagree with anything, JJ.
        But what a fricken mess. Something’s going to blow.

        I sometimes think of that Eisenhower quote,
        “people want peace so much that one of these days governments better get out of the way and let them have it.”

        • Good article mien hier!

        • Eisenhower—what a genocidal hypocrite! His post-war genocide is another piece of history sent down the memory hole:

          judaism DOT is/perpetrators.html#goodwar

        • JJ, another damn good article. Ketchup, I agree something will blow eventually. I was at my BOL less than 2 weeks ago for some R&R and ‘drills’. The way things are looking I may just be headed back before long.

      2. Orange Hillary.

        Terrific, that took less than a year and a half.

        • Orange Julius strikes again! When will you people learn, NO ONE gets to be prez unless they are in the club!

      3. What utter BS. This guy gets more outrageous every day.
        for your edification JJ, Posse Comitatus refers to the military performing police duties against American citizens.
        Protecting U.S. borders from invading hoards is quite proper and constitutional.

        The entire screed about “farm country” is laughable horse manure. There are family farms surrounding me for 300 miles in any direction. Monsanto isn’t one of them.

        Being a former SF soldier doesn’t mean you know sheep shit from wild honey…. and it shows here. I know a former Green Beret and he is a Liberal moron. Big deal.

        • “Yet the brave allies didn’t screw with the Russians directly, now, did they? “ No they didn’t JJ, and it’s because those ruskies turned tail and moved all their assets out of the AO. Had you been paying attention, you woulda made that discovery in the days leading up to this operation. Dude, your credibility is pathetic. Your incessant desire to create an atmosphere of fear really gets old. I don’t know what vetting process Mac has in place to screen some of you “writers” but I’m guessin it ain’t very thorough. The things you say, moreover, the things you don’t say, proves to me that the closest you ever got to a real green beret was when you were handing out equipment in the supply room.

        • Uh, duh.. the National Guard is not the US Army. Nation Guard protects the Nation. What a dumbsh!t author.

          • National Guard soldiers have been activated and deployed overseas to fight in every major foreign conflict. Although you are correct, Nat. Guard can be activated and deployed to the interior United States without violation of Posse Comitatus. Violations in-lieu of police actions by Federalized troops is in violation of Posse C. I won’t get in to what/who has/had original jurisdiction over Nat. Guard, pisses me off too much; for that, you will have to do your own research.

          • The U.S. “National Guard” typically makes up some 40% of the U.S. forces in a war. The “National Guard” is part of the U.S. Army National Guard Bureau–regardless being considered as still the states’ government “militia”. The actual “Unorganized” Militia are the people of a state as their own military force–self-commanded, self-“well-regulated” by their own discipline, self-armed, and self-equipped as meant to be recognized by the Second Amendment of the erstwhile “supreme law of the land” U.S. Constitution as a condition for new states being members of the new Union. Previous to the Second Amendment, the “militia” was conspired by Federalists, in their “supreme law of the land” U.S. Constitution, to be usurped by “federal” (imperial) government as a Presidentially-commanded and Congressionally-disciplined, equipped and called-forth government “militia” to enforce their new empire (the Federalists’ “Union”) on their subjects, the peoples of the several “previously” free and independent, united states of America. That government “militia” is now what their “National Guard” is considered by them to be. The “Federal” (imperial) Government now declare their “National Guard” to be basically exempt from the “Posse Comitatus” prohibition against military-as-police. There are, Constitutionally, now fifty Nations called the “United States” of America. The free states (the sovereignties) of those fifty nations are protected only by themselves–the fifty personally and socially free and independent peoples that are those nations. Any contradiction of that reality totally denies and dissolves the authority of not only the several, but also the United “free and independent” States of America, as they were declared to be by their Declaration of Independence and, reaffirmed as sovereign by the Bill of Rights that amended the U.S. Constitution as a prerequisite for the necessary number of them to ratify the new Constitution and join its Union as only free and independent, sovereign and sole-authority member states thereof, not surrendered to be subject provinces of some self-negatingly-termed “federal”–meaning ‘joint’ (joint of what?)– “Union” (“union” of what?). “United States” are still plural, not singular. They are not “an” “it”, though they may, when federally or jointly, continuously or temporarily, as some or as all, act as a Union–just like any other alliance of states by breakable treaty.

        • Good post Stuart. I agree with your entire post; but only about 1/4 of the article as written. I do feel compelled to ad a few tidbits of finer details to your point on “farm country.” First of all, all agricultural profits, be it small family farm or Big Agra, is 100% completely government subsidized. Completely. Every penny a farmer makes is first robbed from the average tax payer, most people don’t know this fact. Same applies for the Big Agra farms. This applies to crops and livestock. Secondly, unless you are completely surrounded by Amish, Organic farmers, most of the crops being raised in the US are GMO Monsanto crops. The Monsanto crop list includes: corn, wheat, barley, soy, potatoes, carrots, beats, lentils, Various beans and many others. 80-90% of all the food you eat contains GMO’s, mainly Monsanto. Farming, like war, is a racket. This is not to say the little family farm guy doesn’t work hard and bust his azz, he does; it’s to say that his hard earned dollars are 100% subsidized.

          I would also like to address JJ here- to ad that things just don’t ad up about this whole Syria chem. attack and the subsequent bombing. False flags abound, but as a follower of Qanon, who has been spot on about things, I feel compelled to hold out for a bit longer before kicking Trump to the curb. It’s funny, one news site paints Trump as victim and the next will demonize him. Too much speculation, not enough facts and too many self proclaimed “experts” making knee-jerk analysis of events that none of them are privy to the facts of. One thing is for sure though, if the Israeli expansion map expands northeast in the next year or so, all of our suspicions will be verified…

      4. Anyone else besides me see the strike zone? One hell of a lot of ordinance for very little damage. And hey all!!!, ever spill a bottle of clorox in the utility room? Sure’d be pretty hard not to run like hell out of there until it gets aired out. So, what happened to all those deadlies stored at the hit spot? Haven’t heard of any humanitarian crisis now have we? Don’t fall for this. We’re being played, set up and flat out made to look like the fools we are if we accept any of this is the truth.

      5. I had hope for Trump to keep us out of these wars that waste Trillions. But now i am done with him after his attack on Syria. I hope they impeach him now.

        • It’s unfortunate that we have “sides” in America. It is a divide that keeps growing and will not leave any winners. Every step Trump takes is blasted from a bull horn. ‘The Left thinks Trump is Adolf Hitler on bad days and Satan on good days.’ Anyone who opposes these satanists is violently attacked, and accused of every evil under the sun. That’s how Libtards roll.

          Progressives are actually Saul Alinsky socialists plain and simple and would love nothing more than to destroy this great country. They have changed everything including the language we speak today. Remember “Bums?” They are now “homeless people.” Remember “Illegal Aliens”? They are now Undocumented workers.” Remember “Unwed Mothers?” They are now “Single Parents.” Remember “Terrorists?” They are now “Young lads looking for work.”

          Electing Trump was never about him, it was about electing someone else who was not a paid Washington insider. We did that and many of the benefits have already accrued. Most of all, it gave credence to nationalism or whatever you wanna call it. But at this point the opposite message pulsates “…that he’s doing more harm than good. …”. This is coming from the 5000 paid Soro’s Trolls who now clog up the forums and blogs.

          Lastly the “elites” are so arrogant that they think “their” presidency has been usurped. We got the man whom we voted for.

      6. “That “farm country” has been engulfed by Agribusinesses such as Cargill and Monsanto. Farms feeding the millions with produce harvested by illegal aliens and robots.”

        In a very few short years our farms are going to be run mostly by robots. Robots don’t shit in the fields on your food.
        I spent an hour or so discussing robot farming with an employee
        of a Seattle company doing exactly that work in Idaho.It is a lot easier than flying an airplane, which we have have had computers doing for years. It may have changed but one of three British Airways landings are by computer.
        I’m a Vietnam era vet, I used to fix C-5’s I’m not a pilot.
        If it is on a runway, I could jump in a C-5, fly and land it anywhere in the world.
        I can’t taxi the damn thing as I have never done it.
        We don’t need illegals. Democrats only want them as voters.
        As for which Agribusiness you need to worry about keep your eye
        on ADM, They are stark raving Democrat/Socialists.

      7. More from the Syrian war, today US backed terrorists blew up a water pumping station in Homs leaving 200,000 people without water. In the same area US backed terrorists shelled a small village killing 4 and wounding 12 civilians.

        Quick call the president to take more chemical weapon factories in Syria before they run out of people to kill…

      8. The mission was not to screw with Russia!
        It was to attack chem weapon facilities.
        That is what it did!
        Sent a message–

        Wag the dog?? Really??

        • Only a complete retard believes that chem attack BS. Go eat some more tide pod’s….

        • tango

          There was no poison gas released from those sites bombed by the US. Interestingly while they were bombed they weren’t incinerated in a follow up. Let me spell it out.

          1. There were no chemical weapons there.
          2. The US knew that there were no chemical weapons there
          3. If chemical weapons were there their would have been significant collateral casualties
          4. The US would not desire to be responsible for (3) and would have incinerated the bombed sites immediately upon bombing them to neutralize any release.
          5. The US did not do (4) because of (2)

      9. This strike after a false flag is inexcusable–I would like to add one fact concerning the article……

        The US taxpayers already paid for the Raytheon manufactured tomahawk missiles almost 2 decades ago. These missiles have been listed as outdated and are set to be scrapped soon. Essentially the USA did a “use them or lose them” with the archaic tomahawks. Those that are not used by July 2019 are set to be scrapped..

        • Javelin, that’s some lovely news about tomahawks [SARCASM]. So whatever tomahawks they have left they have to shoot them at somebody between now and the expiration date.

          • Yes. It is just like grocery and drug stores who are required to return their Easter candy the corporate offices by a certain date. Any Easter candies not sold in the 90% off sale must be returned for processing.

        • So after July 2019, we can buy Tomahawks on eBay. Excellent.

      10. I’m finally done with it all; false flags, hopelessly corrupt gov’t, ongoing loss of freedoms, unstoppable debt growing by the trillions, wealth redistribution and the gigantic welfare state, ridiculous taxes, endless warfare, constant efforts to eliminate the 2nd Amendment, almost completely unchecked illegal immigration, phony civil rights organizations working against us rather than for us, and on and on. We keep getting disappointed over and over again. The fed. gov’t has everything over managed, over regulated, and over controlled. Whoever wants it can have it. Me, my friends, and relatives are living for the day the inevitable national crackup will allow us and our progeny to have our Southern Confederacy again.

      11. When do the nukes expire??. Better shoot them off too, so you dont lose them either. Ahole. Scrap them. Keep the peace. Russia said they shot down more than half of the 100 missiles Trump rained on Syria for no good reason. Obsolete bs.

      12. TSB, I’d say use some of those nukes on the ‘most deserving targets’, then let the others expire.

      13. FYI, Donald Trump is also NOT going to overturn Roe v Wade. He knew before he was elected that he could not keep his promise of making abortion illegal once again. He’s all talk. Watch what he does, not what he says. He’s also paid women he impregnated to have abortions. He’s a hypocrite.

        I’m still reeling from “Nah, I’m not gonna do anything to the Clinton’s, the Clinton’s are good people” after getting supporters like myself to chant “Lock Her Up” during his pre-election rallies. Now, the latest, he attacks Syria. Twice. After he had assured us we will not invade or attack other countries. He’s not only dangerous, he’s delusional.

      14. S-400’s turned Tomahawks into expensive SCUD’s.
        Looks like the Russians closed the technology gap. Mission accomplished, my ass.
