Fortune Cookie Blog (Cease Fire?)

 

The foolhardy, faux peacemaker can never claim his haggled cease fire to be
a victory. NOT when he turns his back on his allies; NOT when his subjugator
pals can claim their victory, too. NOT when their shared victories usher in the
dissolution and dismemberment of contested territory that favors the despots.
NOT when the masses suffer distress, displacement, destruction and DEATH!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are we overlooking something?

 

First and foremost, I have absolutely no way of proving my following suspicions. Even so, such speculation is worthy of discussion. That said…

The simplest explanation is to dismiss Donald J. Trump’s ill-conceived, ill-timed, bizarre Syrian policy as a monumental blunder of his own making. However…

What if autocrat Vladimir Putin’s meddling into American affairs is not limited only to Election Day? What if he actually ordered Trump to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria?

After all, to destabilize that nation / region, in this manner, has got to be Putin’s fantasy fulfilled. And seeing how both of these despotic dudes have had plenty of clandestine meetings (minus even an American interpreter), Bad Vlad could’ve easily corrupted the always corruptible Donny.

IF THIS IS TRUE… just how many more of Putin’s barked out orders has the Trumpster been following… no questions asked? After all, to destabilize / overthrow America has got to be their shared goal.

Beyond that? One wonders what sort of “doggie treats” this power-hungry Russian feeds his obedient lapdogs?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just wondering… and worrying…

Seeing how…

• Donny, the too big for his britches, fake prez, recently donned his hand-me-down, commander-in-chief long pants (and noticeably drowned in them)…

• That self-proclaimed “stable genius” has so ignorantly and irreparably destabilized Syria… the entire world… by [1] withdrawing American troops, [2] abandoning America’s Kurdish allies and [3] freeing the Kurd’s 11,000 ISIS detainees…

• The Trumpster’s battlefield-bound commands were not first vetted by any White House grown-ups…

• His barked out orders were so easily obeyed down the chain-of-command…

Seeing how…

• “The Boy Wonder” once asked, “If we have nuclear weapons why can’t we use them?AND (must there always be an AND?) AND more recently, actually proposed the nuking of hurricanes, too…

If Donald J. Trump ever ordered a nuclear attack, would his generals question his monumentally questionable judgment or simply follow his insane orders to a “T”?

 

 

 

 

 

Talking Turkey

“I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me.” ~ Donald J. Trump

Oh really? While I could never claim to be a military genius, it’s safe to say that…

Even I know more about ISIS than Donald J. Trump, believe me.

Granted, this post’s discussion will be limited to my general knowledge re the War on Terror’s Rule #1… namely…

One must never throw allies under the bus. However, that’s exactly what the Trumpster is doing.

The 4 – 1 – 1:

• American and Kurdish forces have both been fighting against ISIS within Syria.
• The Kurds have played a major role in helping America defeat ISIS.
• Trump is now pulling U.S. troops out of Syria.
• That will facilitate Turkish prez Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s invasion of Syria.
• With no American protection, the Turks will slaughter the Kurds.
• Trump’s decision to aid and abet Turkey will also aid and abet ISIS.
• With a resurgence of ISIS… well… need anyone say more?

So, what might motivate this sudden change in Trumpian foreign policy? Hmm… might a “little” quid pro quo be in play? Perhaps Erdoğan was able to shovel up some fake dirt on Joe Biden?

Hey, seeing how the Don has been shaking down nations, spanning our entire globe, why would Turkey be an exception?
