LOL–Arch Neo-Con/Pro-Israel fanatic/Warmonger Daniel Pipes against Trump’s decision to bomb Syria
Although there was much praise for Trump’s decision to bomb Shayrat Air Base, there is another side to the story.
ed note–it was just a matter of time before they figured out that Trump out-Jewed the Jews with this one and that as much as they were/are inclined to cheer wildly over YET ANOTHER Arab/Islamic country being bombed by Judea, Inc’s designated attack dog that the bombing was in truth a worm with a hook hidden deeply inside it.
Note what Pipes, an unregenerate warmonger who has supported and cheered EACH AND EVERY bloodbath–down to the last drop–wrought by the US against Israel’s enemies and when in flagrant violation of the US Constitution–
‘I see this military action as an error. Nothing in the U.S. Constitution requires that American forces fight in every war around the world…’
Note Pipe’s sudden conversion to being a humanitarian who believes that kindness rather than bombs is the way to solve problems in the Middle East–
‘The immense resources of the United States should be dedicated rather to reducing human suffering with blankets and soup’
Pipes recognizes that this strike was/is a disaster in the making in terms of Israel’s ability to implode the Trump presidency and is making no attempt to hide his panic through what are barely concealed and completely fallacious arguments.
Daniel Pipes, Israel National News
The Obama Administration rightly stayed out of Syria through six painful, grisly years of civil war there. Yes, the fighting has cost hundreds of thousands of lives and displaced millions. Yes, the uncontrolled migration of Syrians to Europe caused deep problems there. Yes, the Kurds are sympathetic. Yes, Barack Obama made a fool of himself when he declared the Assad regime’s use of chemical weapons a “red line” and proceeded not to enforce it.
Despite all this, it was right not to intervene because Iranian- and Russian-backed Shi’ite pro-government jihadis are best kept busy fighting Saudi-, Qatar-, and Turkish-backed anti-government Sunni jihadis; because Kurds, however appealing, are not contenders for control of the whole of Syria; and because Americans have no stomach for another Middle Eastern war.
The direct American involvement that a few hours ago with nearly 60 cruise missiles in an hour attacking Shayrat Air Base implies siding with one side against the other, even though both of them are hideously repugnant. (While the regime has done the great preponderance of the killing, estimated at 94 percent, that’s due only to its greater destructive power, not the humanitarianism of ISIS and its other enemies.)
I see this military action as an error. Nothing in the U.S. Constitution requires that American forces fight in every war around the world; this one should be sat out, letting enemies of the United States fight each other to exhaustion.
The immense resources of the United States should be dedicated, rather, to two goals: reduce human suffering with blankets and soup and prevent the stronger side (now the regime) from winning through the provision of intelligence and arms to the weaker side (the Sunni rebels).
Trump should immediately cease all direct attacks on the Syrian regime and instead help its enemies to fight it more effectively.
