I understand the fact that the United States going into Syria or anywhere else in the world for that matter angers many just as much as many people feel it’s the right thing to do. The United States is in the world stage as a superpower not so much as for America to beat it’s chest but merely for the fact that there are nations out there that want to destroy us for reasons that they have chosen to justify which in actuality there is no justification.
The release of poison gas was 100 years ago during World War I where eventually gas-masks had to be developed so as to safeguard the troops involved in battle because you are talking about thousands being killed because of various chemicals that were used. My father fought in France in World War I and he showed me that mask. In 1925 a Geneva Convention was signed outlawing the use of chemical weapons and here is something I’m sure many people are not aware of and that is Adolf Hitler, who had himself been a victim of mustard gas in 1918 refused to deploy poison gas during World War II. But as we see today the major powers retain stockpiles of these weapons.
One year ago President Trump ordered a bombing attack over Syria in retaliation to Syrian President Bashar al- Assad ordering chemical attacks on his own people of which is not only a barbarian act but an act of defiance of the 1925 Geneva Convention that outlawed chemical weapons. al- Assad has taken over his fathers murderous habits. So the attack by Trump a year ago made him draw a red line in the sand for any future chemical attacks by Syria. Unlike Marxist Obama who does not honor his own line in the sand after Assad used chemicals on his people during Obama’s administration Obama warned the Syrian president that if he was to use chemicals again on his people there would be consequences so when Assad did it again Obama did not honor his threat. Well Trump is not Obama, when Trump puts a line in the sand the wind will not blow the sand away such as in Obama’s winded BS mouth that lost the respect of the United States all around the world. Trump and the United States led a bombing mission with Britain and France that demolished the three major chemical producing plants in Syria. To see women and children dying all over cable TV in the year 2018 with permission given to do so by the Syrian president with Russia and Iran giving credence in the background is an unexplained atrocity of which there would never be any justifiable explanation, but it being a barbaric act of aggression you could not have the president of the most powerful nation on earth the United States of America Donald J Trump just sitting back and do nothing, that is not in his makeup.
As some Americans complain that we should not have gone in at all you have others such as retired General Jack Keane who is often on Fox News whom I am very fond of complaining that the United States did not do enough. His attitude is why worry about going back in at all if Assad uses chemicals again when in fact if we had destroyed all of Syria’s six airfields that worry would have been diminished. The problem with that is I feel it would definitely be an extension of the war over there which would force the hand of Russia and possibly Iran’s and then all of a sudden we are in a major escalation of possibly a major war. I truly believe that sometime in the future this will come about anyway which there just might be a certain state of circumstances. This must be played out now and Trump was smart to keep the conflict to the chemical weapon attack. I believe in the future because of the Arab’s hatred for Israel they will draw Israel into the conflict and what that would mean is that Israel, the United States and our other allies will be fighting together to finally defeat hatred. Then and only then will there be total peace.
Hillary Clinton , the Democrats and the media have been mocking Donald Trump of late for wanting to establish some friendship of sorts with the Russian President Vladimir Putin. Hillary is trying to make it seem like Trump doesn’t know who the enemy is; I guess she forgot while she was secretary of State she allowed the Russians to take over most of our uranium reserves. I believe most of the American people understand that Trump’s motives in building some kind of understanding with Putin is too not have some kind of misunderstanding of severe consequences that could trigger an all out war. This is not something that has not happened before in Russian-American relations to defeat the enemy. Russia and the United States can do the same thing together today in defeating ISIS.
The following was published by The History Place, “The Defeat of Hitler.” “For Hitler, declaring war on America would prove to be his biggest political mistake of the war – a truly lethal blunder. With the stroke of a pen he had greatly reduced the odds of Nazi Germany’s survival. The Führer now had to contend with three principal opponents – America, Britain and Russia – whose combined reservoir of manpower and total war production capacity dwarfed Nazi Germany – at a time when Germany had already lost a quarter of all troops and many thousands of tanks and planes on the Russian Front.”
We all must remember that at the time of the war Russia was a communist nation since 1917. Also the Premier of the Soviet Union Joseph Stalin (Dictator) ruled by terror and millions of his own citizens died during his brutal reign. With this history of Stalin plus being a communist nation in which both conditions went against American principles President Franklin Roosevelt realized that to defeat Nazi Germany and Hitler an alliance with Britain, France and Russia had to be formed together and that’s how the allies were able to defeat Nazi Germany.
I have read a previous post where Putin of Russia asked Obama for the two countries to get together and defeat ISIS. There was an opportunity that Obama squandered like he does everything else in the Middle East and Syria and what comes to mind naturally is Obama’s famous by now of drawing the line in regard if President Bashar al-Assad of Syria was ever caught using chemical weapons which eventually Assad did and Obama did nothing about it and that was the beginning of the United States losing face in the Middle East and around the world.
Obama’s argument to not joining Putin in destroying ISIS is the fact that Putin supports keeping Assad in power and the United States doesn’t. Just like when Russia and the United States became allies in World War II with all the shortcomings of Stalin the diplomatic experts must put temporary the issue of Assad aside and join forces to defeat ISIS. Obama can make all the excuses he wants of not joining Russia on this issue but you see Obama has two problems, number one he has a yellow streak going up and down his spine and the other is he will never kill fellow Muslims. What do I mean by that? You know very well what I mean by that and so does Obama
Even though President Obama helped ISIS gain a foothold in Iraq because he abandoned Iraq before they were fully secured he was forced to take action against this barbaric group called ISIS. With the constant killing of Christians and the beheading of Americans which is really all the president needs as an excuse to go to war, in the last couple of days there has been even more disturbing news concerning ISIS. As I posted before ISIS had a plot going in Australia which luckily was uncovered of the fact that they would behead people at random which has forced the Australian government to post a high alert status for the next eighteen months. Take this one step further, it was reported today that about 100 Americans went to Syria for terrorist training from ISIS and some of them are already back in our country which I am sure they are waiting for some kind of signal to perform terrorist acts of some nature.
President Obama gave the go ahead because of everything that has been transpiring with five other Arab Muslim countries to go ahead and start bombing ISIS targets in Syria. What’s ironic about this is you now have Sonnies attacking Sonnies. Turkey which has the best Air force of the lot is not participating. For what reason, who knows, unless they are waiting for a wait and see attitude. There are no European countries involved which is very strange. It might be for instance that England and France have allowed a humongous population of Muslims to settle in their countries.
The United States is attacking with bombers, drones and fighters. If this will be enough to destroy these barbarians time will tell. My opinion is that it will do damage but you can’t chop off the snakes head without ground support. It’s also inconceivable to me that the ISIS would not be aware that there were air strikes coming and that they would not have been prepared for them. One retired General said tonight on the Megyn Kelly show of The Kelly File which makes sense, it will the ISIS who will control that decision on Obama in relation to where and how they carry this war out in relation to using ground troops. If it gets to that point Obama will have no choice but to send in ground forces. Only time will tell, in the meantime I will do a Prayer and I hope everyone does also for the safety of our military people who are once again in harms way to protect We The People. May God Bless them to a speedy finale of mission and return them to us safely. ISIS does not have the right and privilege to walk the earth. May God Bless America.
