The Art Of The Deal Does Not Necessarily Apply To A War Scenario
By Matthias Chang
BOMBING Syria was a very big mistake when there is solid proof that the ISIS REBELS etc. were responsible for the chemical weapons (or whatever they were using) attack on Khan Sheikoun. It is also clear that the White Helmets, a British intelligence construct was complicit in the false flag.
HOW CAN IT BE SARIN GAS WHEN THE BASTARDS WHITE HELMETS PERSONNEL WERE USING HOSE TO WATER AND CLEAN THE VICTIMS? IF SARIN GAS WAS USED, WASHING THE VICTIMS WITH WATER WILL HAVE NO EFFECT. MAYBE THEY KNEW IT WAS CLORINE GAS OR SOME OTHER VARIANTS AND THAT IS WHY THEY WERE DRESSED AS THEY WERE AND USING MASKS NOT SUITABLE FOR A SARIN GAS ATTACK. IF IT WAS SARIN GAS THESE ASSHOLES WOULD HAVE DIED WITH THEIR VICTIMS. ONCE AGAIN, BIG BULLY USA ACTING LIKE A MACHO MAFIA DON IN A HURRY TO IMPRESS.
But, real strategists are not that easily impressed. It was very amateurish for the bunch of advisers to President Trump to arrive at such a decision.
Just don’t understand why USA always wants to prove that they are the Alpha Males when they are already the biggest military power. The fact that Trump’s military hot heads need to prove that they are men of action in such a dubious scenario reflect that they are not REAL STRATEGISTS but merely amateurs, to satisfy some short term gains of placating the War Party.
A delay until after the culprit has been identified and established, followed by unleashing a “full blast action” would have been more telling. That does not mean that Trump is a lesser president than Obama. In fact Obama saved his own hide, when on the advice of Putin he held back an attack against Syria’s Assad. Obama wanted to attack on a spurious allegation of chemical weapons use by Assad. Fortunately for Obama, it was later proven that the “gas attack” was unleashed by ISIS. This was another false claim against Assad, just like the false claims of WMD in Iraq. The Trump administration could have easily handled the public relations for not taking action as the accusation against Assad was based on false intelligence. The hasty report by the intelligence apparatus such as the CIA etc. is another example that the Intelligence services were once again wrong in their analysis and it follows that a thorough overview of intelligence gathering is required. In the result, we have the following scores: Neocons 1, Trump 0 = Pathetic Decision Making at the highest levels.
The reason given by Steve Pieczinik may well be true (to impress President Xi and China), but it is wrong card to play. To believe that President Xi would be impressed by such a last minute dramatic gesture is a horrendous failure to understand that one does not rise from the ranks of a Communist country without being ruthless and calculating to ensure one’s survival. Political Mary Poppins do not survive in Communist China and in the Communist Party! China would not be impressed as they would follow Sun Tzu’s strategies in the ART OF WAR. CHINA IS NOT INVOLVED IN THE ART OF THE DEAL IN SYRIA.
TWO DIFFERENT SCENARIOS! THE LESSONS FROM TRUMP’S “THE ART OF THE DEAL” do not necessarily apply in a war scenario.
IT IS A BIG MISTAKE BY TRUMP AND A HEAVY PRICE WOULD HAVE TO BE PAID LATER. NO ROOM TO WIGGLE OUT LATER. TRUMP IS NOW CAUGHT IN A POLITICAL CUL DE SAC. ONE WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT THE GENERALS IN NSA, DEFENCE ETC. WOULD KNOW BETTER AS IT WAS THESE “EXPERTS” WHO SAID THAT THE MILITARY UNDER OBAMA DID NOT FULLY APPRECIATE THE RULES OF MILITARY ENGAGEMENTS. THEY ARE NO BETTER. A FREAKING CRUISE MISSILE STRIKE AT A SINGLE AIRFIELD WITH NO MAJOR DAMAGE! BIG DEAL! GIVE ME A BREAK!
USA WILL SUFFER A STRATEGIC DEFEAT IF THEY DON’T CHANGE THEIR COURSE. THIS IS A GIVEN.
TAU FU (BEAN CURD) MINDSET – SLIGHTLY HARD ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT SOFT AND MUSHY IN THE INSIDE. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
