Some people on the Internet are saying that our Dear Leader’s Executive Order to ban people from Muslim-majority countries was actually for the purpose of causing trouble, and not because he’s impulsive and short-sighted. But I think it’s because he’s impulsive and short-sighted. That’s what he is.
And The Donald didn’t include other countries such as Saudi Arabia on his banned list, the Saudis whose regime is a huge terror-sponsoring regime and from which most of the 9/11 hijackers came from. Did Trump not include Saudi Arabia and others because he has hotels and resorts located there?
Obviously, this sweeping ban including permanent legal U.S. residents and dual citizens will be used by ISIS or other terrorists for propaganda and recruitment purposes and to incite further violence against innocents. No doubt this did not occur to the Ignoramus-in-Chief. The ban has caused chaos at airports, DHS officials to criminally ignore judges’ stays on the order, and has caused presumably innocent people who are not suspected of anything to be unlawfully and unconstitutionally detained. Very short-sighted.
Meanwhile, as the new Commander-in-Chief, the Dear Leader has presided over U.S. government drone strikes in Yemen that killed several alleged al-Qaeda “militants,” and probably civilians, which now makes him the War-Criminal-in-Chief.
According to the Orwellian “Kill List” requirements as imposed by the Obama regime, any male who is of military age, i.e. 18 or older, is considered a “militant” and thus a “combatant,” even though they are probably really civilians.
And yesterday a SEAL Team 6 raid has killed civilians, including 10 women and children, under Trump’s watch. SEAL Team 6 isn’t exactly squeaky clean when it comes to protecting the lives of innocents, in case you didn’t know.
Now, if Donald Trump wants to protect us from future terrorist attacks, then how about not provoking foreigners into retaliating against our government’s invasions, occupations, bombings and shootings and murdering their people? Stop the bombing and murdering? Ya think?
And no, radical Islam may be a motivation for terrorist acts, but most of the terrorists thus far have cited the U.S. government’s bombing and destruction over there since well before 9/11. When you provoke these people of primitive societies it is like poking hornets’ nests. But the short-sighted sheeple of Amerika can’t see that. After 9/11 they refused to tell the government to reconsider its bombings and destruction of Iraq and other areas in that whole region prior to that point. Anyone who did point those things out were booed by the neanderthals or were called “traitors” by the unthinking True Believers who can’t bear the thought of admitting that their own government’s bureaucrats and its soldiers commit war crimes and murder innocents.
Prior to 9/11, President George H.W. Bush started his war against Iraq in 1991, the U.S. military bombed and destroyed civilian Iraqi water and sewage treatment centers, Bush imposed sanctions (continued by President Clinton with more bombings) which prevented the Iraqis from rebuilding and caused them to have to use untreated water, which caused hundreds of thousands of deaths of innocent civilians in Iraq throughout the 1990s. Many national security central planning True Believers just can’t see the connection between what our government did in the Middle East during those years and 9/11. They are short-sighted, and don’t know or don’t want to know history.
Besides citing the Iraqi sanctions as contributing to motivations for the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the terrorists also cited U.S. military occupations in Saudi Arabia as provocations.
Some people had concluded that George H.W. Bush’s main reason for his 1991 invasion and destruction of Iraq was oil. But I think it was something more sinister and scheming. Following President Jimmy Carter’s buildup of U.S. military bases in the Middle East, the invading neocons of the Reagan administration, including then-Veep George H.W. Bush and his flunky James Baker, influenced Ronald Reagan to even further expand U.S. military bases in Middle-Eastern areas, which is where they did not belong, rather than eliminating them, which the “small government” advocate Reagan should have done.
In my view, the neocons (and their CIA cohorts, and Bush had been a CIA man as we all know) could see that the Soviet Union was destined for collapse on its own weight. The Cold War between the Soviet Union and the U.S. was what justified the build-up of the national security state of surveillance and weaponry and so on. The Reagan administration neocons did not want to see the dismantling of that Cold War national security state apparatus, as Jacob Hornberger has noted several times, so those neocon interventionists were preparing for what happens after the Soviet Union collapse in order to maintain that national security state, that being “seeking and creating new monsters to destroy.” The Islamic fanatics mainly in the Middle East were very convenient to manipulate and provoke for that purpose.
And that same kind of policy regarding Iran is what has caused the conflict between the U.S. and Iran as well. One reason why short-sighted Amerikans hate Iran is because of the Iranian religious extremists taking Americans hostage in 1979-1981. But what was it that actually led up to that? It was the CIA’s coup of Iran’s leader in 1953 followed by the U.S. government’s support of the Shah of Iran’s totalitarian police state SAVAK for 25 years. So this is what U.S. government central planning provides for us. Not good.
If Trump wants to really end this terrorism by Islamic extremists, then tell our government, CIA and military to stop provoking them. Get out of the Middle East and Asia completely. No more drones, no more bombs, and close down each and every one of those U.S. military bases and get the hell out of there.
