Yesterday Trump hinted that Obama should have acted back in 2013 when, according to Trump, Assad violated the “red line” by using chemical weapons against civilians in Syria.
Trump and all sorts of raging war-mongers in the corporate media say Obama should have used that moment to launch a full scale war against Syria, killing God knows how many Syrian civilians and U.S. soldiers in the process.
They claim it was weakness on the part of Obama to fail to invade after the “red line” was crossed.
But it wasn’t weakness, it was self preservation.
President Obama couldn’t launch an invasion of Syria based on the chemical weapons attack that just happened to take place a week after he announced a chemical weapon attack against civilians would be the “red line” that would force him to act. He couldn’t because it was already clear that the Syrian’s didn’t launch the attack… Obama’s “moderates” did.
And then there was this:
There was no way in hell President Obama was going to launch a war against a country based on a chemical weapons attack that had ALREADY been exposed as a false flag he himself authorized.
It’s one thing for Bush and Cheney to lie 936 times in order to get a war of aggression started with Iraq. Lying is one thing.
Using chemical weapons against civilians of another country is something completely different.
The Daily Mail scrubbed that article from their website but unfortunately for them, the Wayback Machine exists and you can find it here.
The defense contractor, Britam Defence, sued the Daily Mail saying the email was forged and they won a measly 110k for the suit but what else do you expect them to do?
Whether or not the document was authentic is almost beside the point. The fact is, Obama made his announcement one day and not soon after, Assad is supposed to have done the very thing that promised to bring the wrath of the U.S. military down on his head. How much sense does that make?
It was a false flag attack and Obama, after the supposed leak of the email between contractors saying too much online, worried that it would be way too easy for historians to track back the cause of the conflict to his administration. So he pulled back from his threat.
The Russians had already exposed the attack as coming from the “moderate” terrorists. The alternative media (myself included) had already exposed it as a false flag. The jig was up and Obama wasn’t about to go down in history as a president who launched chemical weapons at civilians to start a war. Especially if that war could have escalated to include Iran and possibly even Russia.
Obama wanted no part of that legacy, so he backed off.
Please help keep AE up and running if you can.
I could REALLY use the help right now
Thank you all so much
