Trump channeled Hillary so implicitly he even hit airfields per her, just hours earlier, suggestion!
“In her first interview since her stunning presidential election defeat by Republican rival Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton on Thursday called for the United States to bomb Syrian air fields”
The strike on Syria was amazingly effective in neutering both the Trump and Hillary supporters.
With that one action the Trump supporters were disillusioned and the Hillary supporters were elated.
The theatre is over- Both sides have been made inert.
Donald Trump spent the presidential campaign insisting that Washington’s first duty was to protect the American people.Hillary would have done the same thing- She in fact said bomb the airfields before Trump did.
Almost exactly a year ago he gave a major address to the Center for the National Interest in which he criticized nation-building and especially the disastrous Iraq and Libya interventions: “After losing thousands of lives and spending trillions of dollars, we are in far worst shape in the Middle East than ever, ever before.”
He also promised to step back from confrontation from Russia. “I believe an easing of tensions, and improved relations with Russia from a position of strength [not] only is possible, [but] absolutely possible. Common sense says this cycle, this horrible cycle of hostility must end and ideally will end soon,” he explained.
Alas, less than three months after taking office for President Trump has begun channeling Hillary Clinton on foreign policy.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson initially said “steps are under way” to develop a new international coalition to oust Assad: “it would seem that there would be no role for him to govern the Syrian people,” he announced last Thursday.
Ambassador Haley spewed fire and brimstone while seeming to push aside her nominal boss. Peace is impossible “as long as Assad remains in power,” she insisted: “we’ve got to go and make sure that we actually see a leader that will protect his people.” She allowed that “Getting Assad out is not the only priority”: The U.S. also has “to get out the Iranian influence,” which is necessary “for peace and stability in the area.”
Last week he declared that as president he now has “responsibility” for Syria.
Both Hillary and Trump are part of the same deep state.
That said, the entire reason of this post was to make the point that both sides ,of this always artificial debate, have been silenced and a change in tactic is required- non participation- it's always been the only way
