Cooler Heads Prevailing On Syria? Let's Hope!

Streamed live on Apr 12, 2018
While we did not wake up this morning to news that the US had started attacking Syria -- or started WWIII -- there is unfortunately no guarantee that by the end of today's program the bombs will not be flying. That is the problem with an out-of-control Executive Branch and when Washington runs with war as its lifeblood. But who are the opinion makers that are helping to pull us back from the precipice? We'll look at a few today...

US, UK, and France Attack Syria Due To Alleged Chemical Weapons Attack. What Really Happened?
Anthony Brian Logan


Published on Apr 14, 2018
President Trump on Saturday touted the “perfectly executed strike” against the Assad regime in Syria, thanking France and Britain for joining the US-led assault before declaring “Mission Accomplished!”

The three countries launched military strikes overnight Friday in Syria to punish President Bashar Assad for an apparent chemical attack against civilians and to deter him from doing it again.

“A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!,” Trump tweeted.

Pentagon officials said the attacks targeted the heart of Assad's programs to develop and produce chemical weapons.

Syrian television reported that Syria's air defenses, which are substantial, responded to the attack. Syrians poured into the streets for defiant demonstrations of their national pride.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said there were no reports of U.S. losses in what he described as a heavy but carefully limited assault.

Trump said earlier this weekend that the U.S. is prepared to sustain economic, diplomatic and military pressure on Assad until he ends what the president called a criminal pattern of killing his own people with internationally banned chemical weapons.

“So proud of our great Military which will soon be, after the spending of billions of fully approved dollars, the finest that our Country has ever had,” Trump also tweeted Saturday. “There won’t be anything, or anyone, even close!

Senators unveil bid to restrict Trump's military power which would stop him bombing Assad again without a vote in Congress

  • A group of senators proposed an Authorization for the Use of Military Force, or AUMF against al Qaeda, the Taliban, Islamic State and associated forces
  • Measure would not authorize strikes against other governments - meaning a repeat of Friday's air strikes would need a vote in Congress
  • Bipartisan effort is led by U.S. Senators Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, and Tim Kaine, a committee Democrat

Trump Is Assembling An Arab Army To Replace US Troops In Syria


by Tyler Durden
Tue, 04/17/2018 - 07:25


The Trump administration is hoping to secure a commitment from a handful of Middle Eastern states to assemble what is effectively an Arab army for a permanent military "stabilizing force" in Syria that would replace the U.S. military deployment in Syria and overthrow Assad prevent ISIS from regaining lost territory in Syria's battle-ravaged east.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Trump's new neocon National Security Advisor John Bolton, only in his second week on the job, has discussed the possibility of contributing troops with Egypt's top intelligence official - allegedly one of the most influential figures in Egypt's military-led regime.




And while full-scale commitments from Egypt and a handful of Gulf states remain elusive, should Trump succeed, he'd be able to tout a victory in an area where President Obama failed. Indeed, the Obama administration sought similar troop contributions from Syria's neighbors but came up empty handed.

The Trump administration is seeking to assemble an Arab force to replace the U.S. military contingent in Syria and help stabilize the northeastern part of the country after the defeat of Islamic State, U.S. officials said.​

John Bolton, President Donald Trump’s new national security adviser, recently called Abbas Kamel, Egypt’s acting intelligence chief, to see if Cairo would contribute to the effort, officials said.​

The initiative comes as the administration has asked Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates to contribute billions of dollars to help restore northern Syria. It wants Arab nations to send troops as well, officials said.​

Details about the initiative, which haven’t been previously disclosed, have emerged in the days since the U.S.-led strikes on sites associated with the Syrian regime’s chemical-weapons capabilities.

The security force would have two goals: stop ISIS from reestablishing a presence in Syria, while also stopping Iran or Iranian-backed sources from doing the same (though Israel already has the latter pretty well under control).

While on Monday the White House refuted claims by French President Emmanuel Macron that he "convinced" Trump to agree to an extended US presence in Syria, it has been forced to concede that the US has no immediate plans to pull US troops from Syria, as President Trump recently promised. Raising an army of troops from regional neighbors would allow the Trump administration the best of both worlds: It could safely pull some or all of its troops while ensuring that the region remains protected.

Trump first alluded to his push to recruit regional partners on Friday, as he was launching the missile strikes. Indeed, the plan to recruit regional partners came about following Trump's insistence that the US pull out as quickly as possible.

Mr. Trump, who has expressed growing impatience with the cost and duration of the effort to stabilize Syria, alluded to the push on Friday night, when he announced the missile strikes.​

"We have asked our partners to take greater responsibility for securing their home region, including contributing larger amounts of money," Mr. Trump said.​

In early April, Mr. Trump spoke about the need to speed the withdrawal of the 2,000 troops the U.S. has in Syria, a position at odds with many top advisers who worry that leaving the country too soon would cede ground to Iran, Russia, their proxies or other extremist groups. The new administration initiative is aimed at avoiding a security vacuum in Syria that would allow Islamic State to return or ceding hard-won gains to Iranian-backed forces in the country.

The US has reached out to Egypt and the Gulf States, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE. Of course, one "Middle East expert" quoted by WSJ claimed that defeating Islamic State in Syria remains a challenge, while assembling a fighting force consisting of Arab troops would face certain challenges.

Charles Lister, a senior fellow at the Middle East Institute, said that assembling a new force would be a challenge because Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. are involved militarily in Yemen, and Egypt would be reluctant to defend territory that wasn’t controlled by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.​

Nor, he said, would Arab states be eager to send forces to Syria if the U.S. military didn’t agree to keep some troops there.
"There is just no precedent or established basis for this shaping into a successful strategy," he said.​

And many questions remain about whether the U.S. military would maintain some involvement in executing such a plan. U.S. troops in Syria, and the Kurdish and Arab fighters they work with, have been protected by American air power. It remains unclear what role, if any, U.S. warplanes might play and who would call in airstrikes if they were needed by a future Arab force.​

"It has to be strong enough to face down Assad or Iran if either seeks to reclaim territory, perhaps with Russia’s help," said Michael O’Hanlon of the Brookings Institution, referring to the new force.​

Other complications: the Arab troops would be expected to cooperate with US-backed forces like the Kurds and other groups (some of which have extremist views) already operating in Syria. It also remains unclear what role the US airforce would play. Furthermore, the US-backed force would need to counter Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad if he tries to claw back some of his lost territory with the help of Russia or Iran.

Estimates vary, but it's believed that between 5,000 and 12,000 Islamic State fighters are still operating in eastern Syria.

Erik Prince, the founder of security firm Blackwater USA and the brother of Betsy Devos, told WSJ that he's been contacted by Arab officials about building a security force that would operate in Syria, but that these countries are waiting to see what Trump will do. Egypt's willingness to support a fighting force is also far from clear. It has enough on its hands battling ISIS-linked militants in the Northern Sinai Peninsula, who late last year carried out one of the deadliest attacks in the region when they killed more than 300 people at a Mosque. Egypt has rarely deployed troops abroad since the country sent more than 30,000 soldiers to join the American-led coalition fighting Iraq in the 1991 Gulf War. Its government has also occasionally made comments supporting the regime in Damascus. Even if countries didn't want to send troops, they could help in other ways by supplying money, logistics support or military training.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE have already helped pay stipends for US-backed fighters, not to mention directly fund the very Islamic State terrorists that the US is allegedly fighting. And Trump has already asked his Saudi friends to contribute $4 billion to restoring areas of Syria once held by ISIS; so far they have been rather quiet, perhaps hoping to IPO Aramco before committing what is hardly pocket change to fighting their own war.

To be sure, Russia's response is pending. Perhaps Putin will decide to respond in kind and invite Chinese troops in Syria as part of his own "multinational" response to oppose any new Arab army, assuring that any attacks in the war-torn nation guarantee a new world war.

From the comments:

I hope the last Arab and the last jew shoot each other at the exact same time.

Unfortunately, they will take down most of the civilized world with them. Meanwhile the uppermost hidden elites, will hide in their hidey-holes, laughing as 90% of the human race destroys themselves.

US Grasping At Straws In Syria
RonPaulLibertyReport


Streamed live 3 hours ago
Plans for an all-Arab occupying force in northeast Syria? New war authorization plans? Trying to maintain control of the media narrative? Trying to disengage? It seems Washington doesn't have a real Syria policy. Is grasping at straws a wise way to conduct foreign affairs? How about a real policy?

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told Trump he should get Congress to vote on airstrikes on Syria but was overruled because president didn't want to back down from his tweets

  • Mattis made the recommendation after Trump had already tweeted to 'get Ready Russia
  • Trump also wrote that the U.S. munitions would be 'smart'
  • Mattis urged a congressional vote, which some lawmakers urged as a way to get buy-in, add to the weight of strikes
  • Trump wanted to be seen as backing up his tweets
  • The tweets followed what the U.S. said was the use of chemical weapons on civilians
  • Mattis also warned that a major attack could provoke a war with Russia
  • 58 per cent of Americans backed the strikes in a new poll
  • The U.S. ultimately fired missiles at just three targets

He has notably deviated from the government/media narrative about the alleged Assad gas attack. How likely is it that Assad used gas? Why are inspectors being prevented from visiting the site?

Trump asked Bibi Netanyahu if he REALLY wants peace in the Middle East

Searcher...thanks so much as always for keeping the info coming.

There are so many rumors out there and so much disinformation on Youtube. Not sure how anyone can watch many of these videos and read these some the internet articles out there and take any of them seriously. The disinformation campaign is in high gear now.

The Syria Narrative Comes Apart - With Guest Sen. Richard Black
RonPaulLibertyReport


Published on Apr 26, 2018
Nothing the US government tells us about Syria and the alleged chemical attack at Douma makes any sense.
