SPECIAL REPORT: Trump, Putin & Syria

I was directed to this blog by my friend, David Prosser, and here I found a post by Gringa of the Barrio, that asks many of the same questions I have been asking for the past 24 hours, regarding the strikes against a Syrian airfield, allegedly in response to the chemical weapon attack by al-Assad earlier this week. Gringa asks not only the questions that have been going round and round in my head, but poses some new ones that I had not considered. I do not know the answers to the questions, do not pretend to, but I think this post is definitely worth the time to read and ponder. Much of what she says makes a great deal of sense. Thank you, Gringa, for a well-thought post and for permission to re-blog!

Gringa of the Barrio

To understand the significance of what just happened, it is important to ask the right questions. Although the gringa would never deny the importance of humanitarian actions, we first have to determine if the American people have been told the truth of what happened in Syria or if we have been duped to support a dark operation. Please read on with an open mind. More importantly, follow the links to further your own personal research in order to draw the most informed conclusion. Even after the research the gringa has already done, she is still left with more questions. Although I am deeply moved by the suffering of the Syrian people, I cannot support Trump’s actions.

Trump had been quietly building up troops in the region of Syria’s conflict since February yet the mainstream media rarely reported these movements. Why?

Trump has always criticized publicizing intended military action as a…

  1. I don’t like the thought of ascribing such deviousness to The White House but there is the possibility that Russia arranged for the sarin gas to be dispersed to give Trump the opportunity to retaliate against a soft target causing little damage. This is a great distraction from the tales of collusion with Russia and also gives Trump some much needed positive news both at home and worldwide.To me though it seems staged and a good reason he didn’t consult with any of the U.S. allies.

    • Your thoughts mirror my own, David. I keep coming back to Erdogan and the coup last summer, which I truly believe he had a hand in staging in order to give him an excuse to impose his ‘state of emergency’ and take more power for himself, while stifling the press. I am trying to think of it from all angles, but I keep coming back to that one. Do I sound like a conspiracy theorist? Hugs!!!

      • Nope, I’d say you’re just covering all angles. I have to say I feel the same and think that Erdogan won’t be pushing for entry to the EU knowing his human rights record would be questioned. Far better to be a dictator and ignore the rules.

        • There are more angles in this than in a Star of David! I am torn in several directions and everything I hear or read only leads to more questions. I wonder … will we ever know the whole truth? Somehow I doubt it. Alas … I think that I shall just sleep on it for now 😀 Cwtch Mawr, dear friend!

  2. Dear Jill,
    Your friend’s thinking is similar to what a lot of others are thinking and sharing.
    This time, I am not in agreement with this thinking but I openly admit that I could be wrong.
    The following is what I responded to 1EarthUnited on another blog:
    Witnesses have stated that it was a Syrian aircraft which did the damage (on 4/5/17) and the US has the technology to verify this; Turkish doctors (with UN observers)have done autopsies to prove that it was sarin gas which caused the death of victims in the area where the Syrian Aircraft struck. The symptoms reported by victims mimics that of sarin gas damage.

    Most telling, is the fact that witnesses saw a Russian drone which was followed by an airstrike on one of the medical clinics where victims of the sarin attack were being taken and treated. Again the US can check up on this.

    This time, I would say that Ron Paul is off the mark.(He is thinking along the lines of your friend. In no way do I ascribe any good intent or motives to DDT. In this case he is an incidental convenient person in the room.)

    In the 2013 strike there was doubt as to whether the sarin gas was from Assad’s stockpile. The Brits and the Germans had both done a lab analysis of the sarin gas used at that time, and the formulation did not match that which had previously been obtained from Assad’s stash. This has not been widely reported by the US press.

    I found the reference for the 2013 sarin gas attack: Seymour Hersh’s News Report Banned in U.S., Is Finally Confirmed in Turkey Posted on October 30, 2015 by Eric Zuesse.

    IEarthUnited also found a reference, World Socialist Site:

    • I don’t dispute that at all, Gronda. And I am not necessarily ascribing to any of the other theories being put forth. But I keep coming back to my thoughts on Erdogan, the coup, the ‘state of emergency’, and wondering … what next? There are, I believe, more questions at this point than there are answers. I’m merely trying to look at everything … all angles … and keep my radar fine-tuned. Sigh. Hugs, my friend!
