Trump seems to rule out deeper US intervention in Syria


US president also says Kremlin’s backing for Assad ‘very bad for Russia,’ as Tillerson meets with Lavrov in Moscow

ed note–here’s what I (we here at TUT) don’t ‘get’.

At its core, the ‘muuvmint’ is made up of individuals who apply skepticism to outright rejection of everything coming out the JMSM, some even going to the ridiculous lengths of saying that since it appeared on the JMSM, that means it ‘didn’t happen at all’, i.e. various high-intensity events they claim were/are ‘hoaxes’ such as the mass shootings at Sandy Hook, San Bernardino, Paris, etc.

HOW-FREAKING-EVER, when something pops up that seems to taste good to them in the sense that it feeds into already-pre-conceived notions, they swallow it whole hog. The same elements who claim Trump is a liar and a fraud and that nothing he says can be believed will–sometimes within the VERY SAME SENTENCE–take him 100% at his word when he says something nasty about Assad and about how much he ‘loves’ Netanyahu.

SO, which is it people? Is he to be rejected as a ‘liar’ and a ‘fraud’? If so, then disregard everything nasty he says about Assad or any other Islamic leader. You can’t have it both ways.

OR, we can try another approach here, which–granted, is a lot more involved, a lot more difficult and requires a lot more attention, flexibility, and skill, but which will prove more effective in trying to glean just what the hell is going on–

It’s called parsing for nuance. It means separating what is likely to be true from what is unlikely to be true. This is how politics works/has worked/always WILL work. There are frontal assaults and then there are tactical retreats, and then sometimes, there are tactical retreats that are feigned in order to draw an enemy into an ambush where he then faces a frontal assault.

Do we like the things he is saying about Assad and what these thing SEEM to indicate future actions on Trump’s part? No, any more than we ‘supported’ Trump’s so-called ‘strikes’ on the Syrian airfield.

But does this also mean that we take him at his word when he seems to be indicating an adversarial posture towards Assad, Putin, etc? No. This is something that he HAS to do, given the current political realities vis a vis the drive on the part of Judea, Inc to remove him from office under the pretenses that he is a ‘Russian Spy’ so that he can be replaced with a true warmonger more to Israel’s liking.

In short, there is checkers and there is chess, and despite the fact that both are played on the same board, they are entirely different games and only a fool would apply their understanding of the less-sophisticated/less complicated maneuvers of the one to the more sophisticated/complicated maneuvers of the other.

US President Donald Trump is appearing to rule out deeper American military intervention in Syria beyond the airstrikes he ordered based on US evidence that Syrian President Bashar Assad attacked civilians with chemical weapons.

“Are we going to get involved with Syria? No,” Trump told Fox Business News in an interview that aired Wednesday.

Trump also warned Russian President Vladimir Putin that in backing Assad, Putin was supporting someone who is “truly an evil person.”

“I think it’s very bad for Russia. I think it’s very bad for mankind. It’s very bad for this world,” Trump said.

Later Wednesday, Trump planned to hold talks at the White House with Jens Stoltenberg, NATO’s secretary-general, while Trump’s secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, was scheduled to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow.

Since Trump took office in January, he has been confronted by European allies who have fear his administration will go easy on Russia. During his 2016 campaign, Trump said he would decide whether to honor the commitment to protect the Baltic republics against Russian aggression, based on whether those countries “have fulfilled their obligations to us.”

He has since made his support of NATO allies clear, but has reiterated his stance that European members need to meet their end of the bargain if they are to continue benefiting from the military alliance.

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is a military alliance of European and North American democracies created after World War II to strengthen international cooperation as a counter the rise of the Soviet Union.

Putin told state-run Mir television that relations between Moscow and Washington have deteriorated in the early months of Trump’s presidency. “It can be said that the level of trust at the working level, especially at the military level, has not become better but most likely has degraded,” Putin said in an interview broadcast Wednesday.

Putin’s spokesman said Putin may meet with Tillerson “if it is decided” that Putin needs to be briefed on the Tillerson-Lavrov talks.

    Islamic end times, you already know that shaykh Imran thinks the truce is with Russia but I am not so sure ……we shall see.
    Islamic End times break down: (re-posted)
    a)The truce and joint Christian-Muslim campaign against a common enemy followed by al-Malhama al-Kubra (Armageddon) Christian vs. Muslim war.

    b)Black Standard will come from Khorasan, nothing shall turn them back until they are planted in Jerusalem

    c)The false messiah (anti-Christ), Masih ad-Dajjal, shall appear with huge powers as a one eyed man with the right eye blind and deformed like a grape. He will claim to be God and to hold keys to heaven and hell and lead many astray, although believers will not be deceived. In reality,his heaven is the hell, and his hell is the heaven. The Dajjal would be followed by seventy thousand Jews of Isfahan wearing Persian shawls.

    d)The return of Isa (Jesus peace be upon Him), from the fourth sky to kill Dajjal/Anti-Christ.

    In a different or more appropriate order than done by wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_eschatology

    “Whoever works righteousness, man or woman, and has Faith, verily, to him will We give a new Life, a life that is good and pure and We will bestow on such their reward according to the best of their actions.”
    [Al Qur’an 16:97]

    “Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion, the one which He has chosen for them and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace: They will worship Me (alone) and not associate any partner with Me. If any do reject Faith after this, they are rebellious and wicked.”
    [Al Qur’an 24:55]

    Joel Skousen WARNING : China Will Invade Japan To Start World War 3 ! How would Start in 2017

    Good news regarding strategic location Utah and Idaho are the better places to be in the US. :–)
    Best places are obviously outside US far from the hot spots and in villages as shaykh Imran highlights.
    He also picks up on the fact that ISIS is false unIslamic opposition that is alienating all Muslims and that is why the US is not attacking them. They are created by governments.
    interesting full interview.

    Personally, I think Trump attacked Syria because I read somewhere that Ivanka was upset over the dead children. Apparently she was shedding real tears. Now that is the truth I believe. You know it rings true. She has him wrapped around her pretty finger….
