Signs Indicate Trump Continuing Obama’s Support for Al Qaeda in Syria

Eric Zuesse

According to a report issued on September 22nd by the most accurate reporter on the current status of forces in the war against Syria — the anonymous military and geostrategic blogger who owns, and posts exclusively at, the “Moon of Alabama” blog — the effort by the previous U.S. President Barack Obama in support of Al Qaeda in Syria, is continuing under the current U.S. President Donald Trump. However, that report isn’t the only indication of Trump’s continuing Obama’s war against Syria, and of the U.S. Government’s continuing pro-Al-Qaeda policy in Syria. And, furthermore, the U.S. Government even supports ISIS in Syria when ISIS is being attacked by Syria’s secular and non-sectarian Government, which Government the U.S. Government has been trying to overthrow and replace by Saud-financed fundamentalist-Sunni Islamists, ever since 1949.

Back on 14 October 2016, Patrick Cockburn appropriately headlined in Britain’s Independent, “We finally know what Hillary Clinton knew all along – US allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar are funding ISIS”, but any reference to the Government of Saudi Arabia is actually a reference to the royal Saud family, who own it; and any reference to the Government of Qatar is a reference to the royal Thani family, who own it. And those royal families, but the Sauds above all, have long been allied with America’s aristocracy — the billionaires who own controlling blocs of stock in U.S.-based international corporations, including the ‘defense’ contractors such as Lockheed Martin (whose largest foreign customer is the Saud family), and also the major newsmedia (which is a major reason why U.S. Presidents represent not only the U.S. aristocracy but also the Saud family, who are allied (as the U.S. aristocracy is) with the Government of Israel against Iran, and against Iran’s ally, Syria. So: this is a U.S.-Saud-Israel core alliance, against Iran and against Iran’s ally Syria. From the very start of Donald Trump’s Presidency, the overthrow of Iran’s Government has been practically an obsession.

    Guns, Wars and Freedom and the grandiose contradiction. We are the terrorists.

    While politicians are not willing to admit it we don’t just endure wars we seem to initiate and depend on war as an important segment of this pathetic economy. A study showed that roughly 75 percent of the fallen in these wars come from working class families. They pay the cost of the war. Eisenhower would likely be appalled by the size of the industrial and governmental workforce committed to war or counter-terrorism activities.

    Our ingenious marionettes passed all those vacuumed “sucking sound” trade agreements eliminating manufacturing and other jobs and shipping them to other regions increasing unemployment and creating gaps in the economic engine. We essentially replaced those lost jobs created by the trade agreements with jobs associated with the war on terror. Now we have tax payer funded military and homeland budgets that support millions of people in an otherwise gutted, declining economy. Hundreds of billions of dollars flow each year from the public coffers to agencies and “International Globalist” contractors who have an incentive to keep the country on a war-footing – and footing the bill for war.

    Additionally, the financialisation and deregulation gave us the S&L crisis, Enron and 2008 Bank bailout absent of justice as the “slithering vipers” hiss and preach how Socialism is bad except for covering corporate costs and losses.. The minions got so caught up in “self” ignoring their public servant duties and here we are in a self perpetuating annualized vicious war economic endless cycle. The mindless mongers cultivated an economic demonic nightmare for most of humanity while profits flow right into the hands of a few masters of the universe .01%.

    Both the Tweeting thoughtless POTUS and NatenYaHoo, two boasting buffoons, at this week’s UN gathering even sold another pitch for the perfect new gadgets in an ever-lasting war on terror. If only we the tax payer had a say where and how all those revenues were spent? It’d be a Big Fat NO to the Military Mafia. Folks this disastrous fiasco will only worsen unless WE or a true “Leader of the World” puts a stop to it. To sum it up war is built into the economy and our Self Servants sell it as the great wonder of the world …… Rogue American Capitalism and its mythical free market. Crooks, Liars and Thieves.

    The fictionalization of 9/11 WTC7 did help create a lucrative new emerged market “War on Terror” so it may be here for awhile unless the masses wake up and revolt.
