I wanted to draw out the thrust of my last post ‘The Sham of Democracy’, in which elections were criticised as being “largely meaningless.” While this remains accurate, a more complete picture requires some nuance to be added. Elections are largely meaningless, but this is different from them being completely meaningless. Because it is the… Continue reading Caveating Criticism of Democracy
After President Trump accused ‘Animal Assad’ of committing another chemical weapons attack, a fresh media clamour for Western intervention in Syria began. But is the President falling for another false flag? One year ago President Assad was universally condemned for his alleged chemical weapons attack, and President Trump responded by launching 57 symbolic cruiser missile… Continue reading America lurches closer to a new war in Syria
By Patrick J. Buchanan, January 18, 2018: The war for dominance in the Middle East, following the crushing of ISIS, appears about to commence in Syria — with NATO allies America and Turkey on opposing sides. Turkey is moving armor and troops south to Syria’s border enclave of Afrin, occupied by Kurds, to drive them… Continue reading A US-Turkish Clash in Syria?
The propaganda of war is something to behold. Back in April, the world branded Bashar Al- Assad a human rights abuser of the worst sort in purportedly using chemical weapons. And under this near- universally held pretext, interventionists cheered on Trump’s impulsive missile strikes into Syria. While it is thankful a greater world war was… Continue reading US Now Admits Syrian “Rebels” Have Used Chemical Weapons
After the West recklessly give birth to Islamic State and then dealt with the consequences both abroad and in our ancestral homelands, anti- Islamists as well as principled conservatives longed for a US President who would end this unmitigated disaster. In response America elected a bombastic, unconventional politician in the form of Donald Trump, whose… Continue reading Trump Ends Program to Train Syrian Rebels
And many, many more will likely follow. I cannot understate how disastrous and foolish President Trump’s recent attacks in Syria were and should they continue, he will doom his Presidency to failure. The Independent, Andrew Griffin, April, 7, 2017: Many of Donald Trump’s most prominent fans have abandoned him after his decision to launch air strikes… Continue reading Donald Trump’s biggest fans desert him over Syria air strikes
Here at the Aussie Conservative Blog, I have staunchly supported Donald Trump’s Presidency thus far. However, Trump’s recent actions in Syria are blatantly reckless, and woefully contradict the foreign policy promises he once made. For now, we cannot be sure whether Trump’s strike in Syria was a simple retaliatory act, or whether it will signal the… Continue reading Sen. Rand Paul Opposes Trump Airstrikes in Syria: ‘The United States Was Not Attacked’
I have great doubts over whether the recent chemical weapon attack in Syria, was actually committed by the Assad regime. Further, one of the more recent articles from Conservative Tree House, seems to add weight to these suspicions. Conservative Tree House, by Sundance, April 4, 2017: We’ve covered the hidden story of manipulation within Syria… Continue reading President Trump Has It Wrong on Syria – Assad Did NOT Use Chemical Weapons – Deep State Neo Cons Misleading the President…
Just when you thought that mainstream media coverage of the Syrian civil war had reached its lowest ebb, things took a drastic turn for the worse. This was seen in the media’s salivating over a meeting between a 7 year old girl from Aleppo famous for her tweeting about the Syrian conflict, and the Turkish… Continue reading Aleppo twitter girl meets with the Turkish President?
Pat Buchanan is right on the money here and President- elect Trump could do worse than listen to this good advice. “Lessons of Aleppo- for Trump”, Pat Buchanan, December 15, 2016: In this world, it is often dangerous to be an enemy of the United States, said Henry Kissinger in 1968, but to be a friend… Continue reading Lessons of Aleppo — for Trump
Patrick Cockburn writes for The Independent: The Iraqi army, backed by US-led airstrikes, is trying to capture east Mosul at the same time as the Syrian army and its Shia paramilitary allies are fighting their way into east Aleppo. An estimated 300 civilians have been killed in Aleppo by government artillery and bombing in the… Continue reading Why Everything You’ve Read About Syria and Iraq Could Be Wrong
In the following video, Syrian President Bashar Al- Assad clears up the propaganda being spread in discussion regarding the Syrian civil war. On humanitarian grounds, on international law grounds and on grounds of long term stability in the Middle East, the western meddling in the Syrian conflict is wrong, and sensible leadership would see Australia… Continue reading Assad speaking some sense
Will Russia help give a new birth to a resurgent Ottoman Empire? It’s a tricky bit of diplomacy, but their recent successes suggest they could do so — and thereby destroy the major international alliance controlling Russian aggression. CounterJihad, October 13, 2016: A significant claim is being pushed by the Turkish government, one that could… Continue reading Turkey’s New Territorial Claims Threaten NATO
Tensions are mounting in Syria as in one of the last vestiges of rebel power; Aleppo, conflict is intensifying, as the Assad regime accompanied with Russia and Iran, edges closer towards victory. While the scenes in this Western- driven war have already been horrific, this situation has been compounded by speculation that perhaps a larger… Continue reading Tensions mounting over Syria
Its been an accusation leveled at the United States on several occasions, due to its foreign policy pursued in Syria. We know already about the suspicious Islamist leanings of Barrack Obama, and the curious inaction of his administration to’degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS’, as was once promised. But is it possible really, to definitively determine whether or not Obama… Continue reading Is the United States supporting ISIS?
