Why Did Trump Betray Campaign Promises on Syria, Assad, Russia?

  • World leaders are questioning the veracity of claims Syria’s Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against his own citizens—and the legality of the U.S.’s retaliatory cruise missile attack on a Syrian air base. In the U.S., citizens who supported Donald Trump during his presidential campaign are now questioning the veracity of his pledge to follow a non-interventionist policy when it comes to America’s military.

Betraying his campaign pledges to pursue an America-first foreign policy and entirely contradicting his previous criticisms of America’s disastrous foreign policy in the Middle East—epitomized by the endless wars based on lies and false “intelligence” being waged against various Muslim countries in the region—President Donald Trump launched an airstrike targeting a Syrian airbase that was allegedly home to the Syrian warplanes that carried out a purported chemical attack against civilians earlier this month.

American officials have insisted that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad ordered an attack on civilians using sarin gas, a deadly chemical weapon that is banned by the UN. When announcing his decision to launch the airstrike, which consisted of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles being fired at Al Shayrat Airfield where the alleged chemical weapons attack originated, President Trump declared that the strike was in the “vital national security of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.”

“There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the UN Security Council,” President Trump went on to insist. “Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically.”

Syrian President Assad has denied he ordered the attack, and has insisted that his regime gave up all of its chemical weapons in 2013. In a controversial interview shortly after the alleged attack with Agence France-Presse (AFP), which has since been deleted from the world renowned news outlet’s website, Assad vehemently denied responsibility for the attack that purportedly took place in the Syrian town of Khan Shaykhun, describing the event as a “100% fabrication.”

“Our impression is that the West, mainly the United States, is hand-in-glove with the terrorists,” he told AFP in the interview. “They fabricated the whole story in order to have a pretext for the attack.”

Assad went on to question the validity of the dramatic videos depicting the alleged attack, which were shown on major media outlets across the globe and used to justify an American military response to the purported attack. Assad stated it was “not clear” to him and his government whether an attack took place at all, but if an attack did take place, his government was not responsible.

“You have a lot of fake videos now,” Assad stated. “We don’t know whether those dead children were killed in Khan Shaykhun. Were they dead at all?”

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been equally skeptical of the alleged attack and America’s response. During a press conference shortly after the alleged chemical attack, Putin suggested that the situation reminded him of the lead-up to the American invasion of Iraq in 2003, which was based on entirely fabricated intelligence and outright lies.

“The military campaign was subsequently launched in Iraq and it ended with the devastation of the country, the growth of the terrorist threat, and the appearance of Islamic State on the world stage,” Putin noted.

Putin also suggested the alleged attack may have been a Western-created provocation or false-flag attack designed to justify a military strike against Syria. “We have reports from multiple sources that false flags like this one—and I cannot call it otherwise—are being prepared in other parts of Syria, including the southern suburbs of Damascus,” RT quoted Putin as stating at the press conference. “They plan to plant some chemical there and accuse the Syrian government of an attack.”

The Russian government has urged the UN to launch an objective investigation into the alleged attack, and bring their results and conclusions to the international community.

“We are planning to address the corresponding UN structure in The Hague and call on the international community to thoroughly investigate all those reports and take appropriate action based on the results of such a probe,” Putin stated.

American Rhetoric Against Russia and Syria Increasingly Hostile

American officials, including President Trump and his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, have used increasingly bellicose and hostile rhetoric towards Russia and Syria, even going so far as to accuse Russia of knowing in advance the Syrians were planning a chemical weapons attack. A declassified U.S. intelligence report published last week not only concludes Syria’s government ordered the sarin gas attack, but also argues Russia is helping Syria cover up its alleged crimes.

“The United States is confident that the Syrian regime conducted a chemical weapons attack, using the nerve agent sarin, against its own people in the town of Khan Shaykhun in southern Idlib Province on April 4, 2017,” the document states. “The Syrian regime and its primary backer, Russia, have sought to confuse the world community about who is responsible for using chemical weapons against the Syrian people in this and earlier attacks.”

The report goes on to argue that Russia “spins out multiple, conflicting accounts in order to create confusion and sow doubt within the international community.”

Interestingly, immediately following reports of the purported chemical weapons attack, Israeli defense and intelligence officials pinned the blame on Syrian President Assad, insisting he personally ordered the attacks. Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, a far-right Zionist, declared that Israel was “100% certain” the attacks were “directly ordered and planned by Syrian President Bashar Assad,” according to Ha’aretz, an Israeli news outlet.

Putin, for his part, told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that it was “unacceptable” to make “groundless accusations” of such a magnitude before an impartial investigation was conducted. Israel and Jewish neoconservatives with close ties to the Zionist state have played a leading role in promoting an aggressive American foreign and military policy in the Middle East, and were largely responsible for the disastrous wars in Iraq, Libya, and other Muslim-majority nations in the region.

Fake News Media and Political Establishment Support War

Virtually the entire American political and media establishment has supported President Trump’s strike against Syria, and have actively participated in the hysterical demonization of both Assad and Putin. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) are two notable exceptions, as both congressional leaders have criticized President Trump’s moves in Syria. Gabbard has even expressed skepticism and doubt about whether Assad was truly behind the alleged chemical weapons attack, drawing the ire of more establishment Democrats. Her justifiable skepticism has led liberal leaders to demand Hawaiians vote her out of office in the next election.

“Why should we just blindly follow this escalation of a counterproductive regime-change war?” Gabbard asked, while defending her skepticism during a recent interview with CNN.

As is generally the case, those criticizing America’s warmongering are attacked and slandered as “unpatriotic” and “un-American,” while leading cheerleaders for more war and mayhem receive praise and adoration.

  • Who is djt really?
    Still not sure yet.
    But lately he’s looking worse than expected.
    In and of itself the tomahawk strike wasn’t so much.
    looks bad though if trump acts the stupid fool for cia/mossad.
    They have to be checked and balanced by a genuine executive.
    He was the best pick of the finalists. Don’t forget. The only one. Though far from perfect.
    Rand Paul looking better now but him still way on the wrong side of the border issue.
    No real american can ever buy that.
    trump the only hope anywhere for a secure border.
    Don’t wait for the wall.
    Put a division of army on the southern border right now.
    Reaffirm your base.
    Stop all immigration.
    Sweep out all illegals.

  • Absolutely sick when I heard he attacked Syria. He absolutely betrayed American voters. I did not vote for Hillary because I want these wars to stop and he promised. I really think his son in law and Israel trumps his campaign promise.

  • “Why Did Trump Betray Campaign Promises On Syria, Assad, Russia?”

    Same reason that pompous ass flip flopped on climate change;

    Jared Kushner”

    For +/- 100 years Sewer Nation has had a Jew slithering ’bout the halls of D.C. looking out for Jew interests;

    Bernard Baruch

    Henry (war criminal) Kissinger

    Now the new torch carrier Kushner

    How lucky can the synagogue be!?
    Not only a swarm of low lifes to create the “Judas Class” in D.C., a “mutt” culture ignorant enough to WORSHIP those ravaging their country/lives!

    A “win/Win” for Lucifer.

  • Even Jim Fetzer announced during his The Real Deal show with Dennis Cimino as his guest, posted today, that he has given up on Donald Trump actually being an American Firster president. Of course, if the President really was, he would probably be assassinated. Poor Syrians. Poor us.

  • The zionists, Jews or whatever they are are experts at know what they can (and can’t) get away with. Lying is an art, honed through thousands of years of practice, at which the Jews are the undisputed Masters.

    This was a “trial balloon” IMHO. Trump failed, miserably, in the eyes of the humans, but far exceeded expectations in the eyes of our Jewish Masters (at lying).

    The goal for the Jew is, of course, world conquest, not just the destruction of some runways at a little-used Syrian airport. The real goal was to see if the Jews could get away with launching a full-blown invasion of Korea. In this respect, the Jew has learned exactly where Goyishe opinion stands.

    IMHO, the Jew lost miserably in this regard. They know they are going to have to move on to a different tactic to get WWIII. It won’t happen in the conventional way, with or without Agent Trumpowitz on their team. Too many have awakened to their diabolical game.

    Get ready for The Big One, maybe even next week, and I don’t mean a California earthquake. We’re already reading fake-news from Tel Aviv about Kim threatening such a false-flag, obvious BS, but all part of the Jewish art of lying.

    But hey, look at the bright side. At least Agent Trumpowitz didn’t take a year to show us all who he really works for.

  • An aside, perhaps, but then again maybe preparation by language manipulation was a big part of how we go to this point:

    I bridle when I hear mainstream journalists use the term, ‘world leader’ and bridle more when non-mainstreamers use it, especially people who might say they’re anti-globalist/NWO.

    There are no ‘world leaders,’ thankfully, as of this date. We really don’t want such creatures. We want local and national public servants led by us. But we make ‘world leaders’ more likely tomorrow by constantly discussing them as if they are were a reality today.

    ***

    Where an obviously counter-factual and clumsy term yet becomes the common phraseology, we can assume deliberate manipulation of the language – and so I say we should deliberately challenge that language.

  • Has John seen this yet?

    Trump OKs DACA Amnesty: ‘This Is a Case of Heart’

    “Trump’s support for the DACA program is one of his biggest “flip-flops,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “During the campaign, now-President Trump had said he was going to end that on day one because it’s an unconstitutional action by the president,” Krikorian told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Friday. ”

    I will NOT vote again for this backstabbing, lying, flip flopping piece of human scum in 2020.

    In fact, I would not be surprised if he flip flopped on granting amnesty to the 35-40 million illegal alien parasites who the Gang of 8 bill tried to amnesty, and then, caving into his nauseating liberal daughter Ivanka’s wishes, grants them liberal family unification provisions so they can bring in another 100 million or so of their non-white relatives.

    Trump supporters have been played, people. CW2 is the only recourse left to save our White race.

  • telena helatova

    this surprises you? i am surprised you are surprised, he may be worse than obongo,he is totally in with the ashkenazi aand is president of zog he will take us down as far as he canhe is part of the swamp, the people around him are indescribably despicable.

    • No, I am NOT surprised. If you are regular visitor to this website – and if you have read the comments that I have posted here over the last year, with regards to what I perceived to be a dangerous, extremely naive and borderline childish and totally reckless and unjustified, over-the top, toe kissing praise and adoration for Donald Trump – you would remember that, while I said he was a much better alternative to the evil witch – I devoted considerable time and effort to caution John Friend and all of the other blind and gullible drum bangers for Trump that it was very likely that we would be cursing this S.O.B. within a year of him being in the White House. I was wrong in one respect. This P.O.S. didn’t take a whole year to show his true jew colors; in less than 3 months in office, the guy has flip flopped on so many promises he made during his campaign that he will go down in history as being the Biggest jew toe sucking Con-artist in world history.

      I had my suspicions and I made a huge effort to warn John Friend and everyone else who I saw were blindly buying into the Trump line of kosher crafted baloney that was used to snooker the stupid white goyim. But, only a few listened – and now, we wake up every day and are presented with another Trump dagger being shoved into the backs of the Whites who voted for this chunk of lying, backstabbing, New York City sewer rat feces.

      The harsh and unpleasant reality is that voting is a waste of time. The only path that remains to save the White race is going to involve ballistics.

  • Betray who ? Maybe he didn’t betray you. Maybe the question is ‘ why did Trump lie and deceive ‘ or ‘why did we fall for Trump’s lies and deception ‘ ? There is always the question ‘ did I buy a lie or was I sold a lie ‘. Many aren’t surprised. There are multiple ways you can look at something. Maybe you are asking the wrong question to justify to yourselves why you fell for it. John no disrespect but you say you are a Christian and Bible believer, the Bible says ‘put your trust in no man’. ‘ Man’s hearts are deceitful’ and that’s referring to all of us.
