Despite the vehement pleas and letter-writing campaigns by a significant portion of his political base opposing military action in Syria, including notable media personalities such as Tucker Carlson, President Trump committed what looks like political suicide by ordering air strikes on, fittingly, Friday the 13th of April. The bombing, thankfully, appeared to have been thwarted by Syrian air defenses, nor, as of this date, has the insane American, British and French action led to a wider conflagration.
As of yet, no doubt due to Divine Intervention, WWIII has not erupted and although the ramifications of the attack will reverberate for weeks to come, what is clear is that President Trump is now firmly in the clutches of the neo-cons, Israel, and the American Deep State, all of whom are the direct beneficiaries of the wanton attack on the Assad regime.
A good portion of Trump’s base is rightfully enraged by the action, which will dash any hope of it coming to his aid if future impeachment proceedings are commenced over the Mueller investigation. Many of Trump’s supporters have been seething ever since he signed off on the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending package in March and his continued failure to start construction on a border wall.
Talk about shooting one’s self in the foot!
Whether President Trump survives until 2020 or is replaced in the interim by neo-con Mike Pence, American foreign policy will, in all likelihood, continue its bellicose ways. Ever since WWI, which the current Bomber-in-Chief mentioned in his address announcing the air strikes, America has been an interventionist, destructive, and murderous empire.
The reason for this is that the nation’s ideology changed from trumpeting the ideas of non-intervention and peace (except, of course, for the people of the South during their heroic attempt at independence) to those that glorified empire and war, largely based on the British model, which ironically was the system that America seceded from in 1776. By the time of WWI — actually the disgraceful Spanish-American War — the ideals of non-intervention, peace, and hard money had been gradually replaced by those of empire, central banking, war, and debt.
Until there is a change in ideology, it is unlikely that the U.S. will refrain from its interventionist foreign policy. And, typically, social change comes after men’s minds have been convinced of a different paradigm, which does not happen overnight.
