President Trump: ‘We’re not going into Syria’

After members of his own cabinet — Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley — made war noises about taking out Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, President Trump denied that the U.S. is “going into Syria” in a phone interview last night with the New York Post (NYP).

Michael Goodwin reports for the New York Post, April 11, 2017:

Amid complaints that his aides are saying different things about Syria and his policy is confusing, President Trump emphatically cleared the air.

“We’re not going into Syria,” he told me yesterday in an exclusive [phone] interview. “Our policy is the same — it hasn’t changed. We’re not going into Syria.

But Trump insisted that Assad had used sarin gas on his own people, calling him a “butcher” and a “barbarian,” but that last week’s successful missile strike — which he calls “an act of humanity” — was not the start of a campaign to oust the dictator:

“Our big mission is getting rid of ISIS. That’s where it’s always been. But when you see kids choking to death, you watch their lungs burning out, we had to hit him and hit him hard.”

[Note: Trump continues to ignore reasoning and evidence to the contrary. There are also rumors that Trump’s National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster (who replaced ousted retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn) and others have been feeding Trump false intelligence:

  1. Assad had/has no reason to gas his people because the campaign against jihadist “rebels” is going well;
  2. The U.S. military knew the “chemical attack” was the result of Assad’s conventional air strike against a jihadist weapons depot in Idlib which contained chemical weapons of chlorine gas and organic phosphates — not sarin gas — which were released into the air from the strike.

See “Former US intelligence officials: Trump lied about Assad’s chemical attack on Idlib province” and “3 reasons why the latest Syrian chemical attack attributed to Assad is a false flag”]

The New York Post report continues that on Russia, Trump said he hoped for Putin’s cooperation, but that “I don’t know”:

“We’re not exactly on the same wavelength with Russia, to put it mildly. Putin must see what a barbarian this guy [Assad] is, and it’s a very bad symbol for Russia with this guy gassing children and using barrel bombs.”

About Iran and Obama’s nuclear deal with the regime, Trump said:

“I don’t need more pause about Iran. It was the single worst deal ever. It’s a disgrace that a deal like that was even signed. It made Iran a power from a country that was ready to fall apart. Iran won’t honor its deal. Instead of saying, ‘Thank you very much for saving our country,’ they’ve been emboldened.”

About North Korea making war noises, Trump said, “I knew I was left a mess, but it’s worse than I thought.”

Trump also said he has not had any recent contact with Obama and that “I’m very disappointed that I was surveilled and so was my campaign. That’s not supposed to be happening, but I’ve been proven right.”

  2. I most strongly recommend FotM readers go to http://www.321gold.com/editorials/moriarty/moriarty041017.html by Bob Moriarty, US air ace of VietNam, survived more than 800 sorties, a miracle of survival. His thoughts on this are what all true patriots are having these days as our daily fare.

    • Excellent article by Bob Moriarty–thanks. Also see bollyn dot com, where Christopher Bollyn traces the plan to Balkanize Israel’s neighbors back to the ’79 Jersulalem Conference on Int’l Terror, organized by self-admitted mass murdering terrorists Menachem Begin and Netanyahu’s father, and attended by their water boy GHWB.

      Bollyn also reports that a US Joint Chiefs of Staff study going back to Israel’s founding in 1949 warned that Int’l Jewry, even before Israel’s founding, had planned on nothing less than total military, political, and economic hegemony over all the ME, not at all bound by the Yinon Plan’s proposed future borders.

      What the JCS missed was Israel’s plan to undermine the cultural and religious cohesion of Muslims as well, turning Muslims, as with European and American Christians, into atomized consumers of material goods and vice without little to no regard for cultural self-preservation and group interest and therefore ripe for exploitation. I hate to think it, but it may be that Trump is proving himself little more than another glorified water boy for Israel, like the Bush and Clinton crony-crime syndicates before him.

      The idea that with Tillerson in place it’s obviously about securing our energy interests is nonsense since the $trillions spent on these wars for Greater Israel–that’ll reach $10 trillion with interest without a single additional engagement–could have developed the energy resources to secure our energy needs almost indefinitely.

      • Thanks, Dan, for your excellent backgrounder. You’ll find that Christopher Bollyn is one of the first & longest ‘best-informed’ ciitizen journalist investigators for the truth –at all costs– because the truth is priceless. His exposure of the 9-11 perps made him & his family flee the US after multiple murder threats and physical attacks on them. He keeps moving in hope they never catch up w/him, but he may become an ‘unexpected death’ such as Mike Ruppert, Andrew Breitbart, and too many others.

  5. Dear President Trump,

    As a voter who enthusiastically supports you I urge you to keep away from the idea of “regime change” in Syria.
    In the absence of Assad we would surely see radical muslims rush into the vacuum to take over and commit yet more genocide.

    Sincerely yours,

  6. The usa need not go “into Syria” in order to start a war with Syria.
    I believe, since Trump was goaded by his daughter to bomb Syria, and with his SIL in his ear as well, he sees Assad as the Syrian boogeyman “dictator” who gases children…in spite of the actual info to the contrary and the fact that he protects Christians in his country. Trump’s choice of words are very interesting. He probably plans to take out isis and then initiate “regime change” in Syria afterwards.
    Where were the usa tomahawk missiles when african and asian countries were being taken over and brutalized by islam or through a brute “democratic” process where islam saw to it that they “won” the election by killing off opponents? the usa govt didn’t care because those countries already had central banks established and their had resources.
    It’s as though no country is allowed to exist in peace with TPTB around constantly creating war and havoc to gain control, profit, and crush freedoms….so much evil.

    Trump needs to clean house…and I believe he should begin with ivanka and jared, then AIPAc and goldman sachs…get them out of his ear and out of the white house. The people didn’t elect the kushners, the people elected Trump.
    here’s a link to an article by a woman who detailed her experience with jared as his employee and why she feels he is unfit to “reinvent the government” through Trump:
    “I worked for Jared Kushner. He’s the wrong businessman to reinvent government.”

  7. I have been following this a bit, and I seem to find that most U.S. intelligence leans toward the fact that Syria did indeed use Sarin gas on it’s own people. Of course, it is not always simple to determine if the government is correct, after all, the intelligence showed that Sadam Hussein had WMD’s, which turned out to be either false, or simply him trying to show strength to the people in the region. The question that needs to be asked is, if Assad did actually use Sarin or another chemical weapon on civilians in his own country, does that justify the U.S. taking military action like we did. That is not only the right question, but not easily answered.

  9. Thanks for the update. Glad to hear POTUS is thinking straight again. (Maybe Ivanka has the week off.)

    He needs to rein in the blabbermouths, though, who are always saying the opposite. This is not the first time that has occurred.

    Saw this posted elsewhere. Per Eric Trump, via Fox News 4/12/17, Ivanka really IS the reason Trump struck Syria w/missiles:
    […]
    …revealed by Eric Trump:

    ”What’s more, the younger Trump, said, the president’s decision to launch the missiles was influenced by his sister Ivanka, who said she was “heartbroken and outraged” by Bashar al-Assad’s chemical attack that killed men, women and babies.”

    Tsk tsk!!

    The same person who posted that comment, a well-informed & articulate Trump supporter lady, also wrote that POTUS has sent, not just one warship, but an entire armada to N.Korea! I'm not up to speed on that news! If true, yikes.

    “At the end of the period, there will be a hair-raising confrontation with North Korea.”

    Paul Craig Roberts has a scathing beatdown of DC, Tillerson (& Trump by association) re Russia/Syria article. Ewww weee. I saw it via Makow twitter feed earlier.

    On the opposite side of the fence, “America’s Rabbi” Schmuley whatshisname Boteach(?) is very pleased Trump blasted Syria. Saboteur365 has that story which includes Schmuley’s long schmiel about it.

  10. Not going into Syria huh.

    That’s news to about 1000 sf and Marines on the ground, fighting side by side with the peshmerga. They were just fighting isis, now Trump has attacked Assad for the first time. I guess to figure out what this guy’s going to do next we should consult Netanyahu or the current head of mossad.
