I don’t think anybody has ever accused me of giving Donald Trump “too much credit” but that happened yesterday when I wrote about President Trump’s executive order involving enhanced screening of people coming from certain countries where we hire, train and equip Muslim terrorists to destabilize and regime change the “program nations”
I wondered aloud in my article if Trump and his people weren’t somehow targeting the CIA’s and the State Department’s regime change contractors and at least one reader thought I was giving him too much credit.
Let’s take a look at what Robert Gates said yesterday about the situation and the trouble it might cause:
“Any effort to strengthen national security to improve the vetting process, I think that’s all perfectly reasonable and totally legitimate,” Gates told ABC’s Martha Raddatz on Sunday’s “This Week.” “In fact, we would expect that of the president.
“The key is doing it in a way that doesn’t risk creating more enemies than threats it deters – and that’s the balance that has to be weighed.”
Gates added some concern shared by “former senior commanders in Iraq and Afghanistan” about the presentation of “this order” impacting some former Iraqi’s who aided operations there who were “promised safe haven in the United States and now may not get it.“ NewsMax
Former Iraqis who aided operations were promised a new life in the land of the Big PX after their “tour of duty”(?) not getting what they were promised?
I think that sounds exactly like what I was talking about, right?
You go into a shit-hole of a country (one we turned into a shit-hole by the way) and you find a bunch of young, unemployed, hopeless men and offer them a chance out. You cut a deal with them that if they serve 3 years or so on one of your destabilization teams, in the end they get a certain amount of money (remember that 500 million Obama got to “train” “moderate” terrorists in Syria? How many did they “train”? 50? What do you think happened with all that money?) and a ticket to the States where they can attend college and will have a job waiting for them when they get there.
Who is going to pass on that?
Seems to me this new plan from Trump is taking that incentive away from the recruiters and simultaneously it will cause a great deal of conflict within the ranks of those already serving their time in places like Libya, Syria and Iraq. Right?
Terror supporters like McCain and Lindsey Graham are livid right now showing their anger at Trump for doing this. As are the CIA controlled fake left in Hollywood.
Chuck Schumer got out in front of a podium yesterday and pretended to cry with a couple Muslim kids standing next to him as props.
Potential DNC heads are going on Fox saying this is “literally tearing families apart” (and they said nothing about ObamaGod’s drone strikes that literally blew families apart)
Jonathan Turley, a man who doesn’t support this action, just went on Morning Joe and explained that the argument being used out on the streets against this program has almost nothing to do with the reality of it. It’s hyperbole and a farce. That’s basically what he said.
Truth is, people are being detained, questioned and released.
I think this is part of an effort to put an end, at least in part, to the irregular warfare operations across the Middle East which use Muslim men from various countries either recruiting them from those 7 nations or sending them into them to serve their time and earn passage over here to the States where they can start a new life.
Of course, Trump can’t say that and so he has to deal with the “It’s a BAN ON MUSLIMS!!” disinfo that is being propagated across the country by the usual suspects who have ties to our deep state.
God knows I don’t give Trump “too much credit” on anything. And after Gates’ statement, I feel more convinced than ever that I haven’t started with this one.
UPDATE: McCain and Graham made it clear which Muslims they were concerned about yesterday.
“At this very moment, American troops are fighting side-by-side with our Iraqi partners to defeat ISIL. But this executive order bans Iraqi pilots from coming to military bases in Arizona to fight our common enemies. Our most important allies in the fight against ISIL are the vast majority of Muslims who reject its apocalyptic ideology of hatred.” UPI
The 5 or 10 Iraqi Air Force pilots learning to fly F-16s would not be included in the ban.
So which “Iraqi partners” are war-mongers Graham and McCain talking about coming here to the U.S.?
