Robert Wenzel asserts that Donald Trump’s installing of military generals in the White House including the new chief of staff John Kelly and national security advisor H.R. McMaster is a “military coup in front of our eyes.”
Gen. McMaster is ousting Trump loyalists who are not in line with the generals’ military-control agenda, as I wrote in my previous post. And, as Wenzel points out, McMaster is however giving Susan Rice, Obama’s national security advisor, access to classified info even though she is out of office and is currently under investigation for her “unmasking” of Trump transition team personnel while they were under surveillance by the Obama regime.
And it appears that Gen. Kelly attends private meetings between Trump and cabinet members including while on the phone, and is acting like a true control freak.
Now, I know that Trump is fascinated with the military people and is turned on by their swagger and all that. But throughout the campaign Trump was very critical of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and he recognized just how much our military destroyed those countries. It is these very generals who took part in the destruction of those countries, in which the U.S. military invaded two countries that were of no threat to us, that didn’t attack us, had nothing to do with 9/11, and in which the U.S. military have turned both countries into Islamic, Sharia law theocracies. Both U.S.-formed governments, in Iraq and Afghanistan, state in their new constitutions just that. And thanks to these generals and their cohorts in the U.S. military, they have engendered the creation of ISIS.
And Gen. McMaster took part in the first Iraq war in 1991, in which then-President George H.W. Bush sent the U.S. military to invade and bomb the crap out of Iraq, even though Iraq was of no threat to us and hadn’t attacked us at that time as well. Besides destroying Iraqi civilian water and sewage treatment facilities during the 1991 war on Iraq, forcing the Iraqis to have to use untreated water thus causing skyrocketing rates of diseases including cholera, the U.S. government then imposed sanctions and no-fly zones which prevented the importation of medical supplies and construction materials to repair the civilian water and sewage treatment centers the U.S. military destroyed for no good reason. As Leslie Stahl pointed out on 60 Minutes in 1996, by that point 500,000 innocents had died. Many more died because of the sanctions up to the year 2000. In my view, there wouldn’t have been a 9/11 had there never been a criminal invasion by the U.S. military in 1991. Everything the national security state, the “intelligence” community, and the generals and their cohorts have been doing since 9/11 has made things worse and worse, and made us less safe and more vulnerable.
And Donald Trump wants these guys to be in charge of the U.S. government now? Given the references that Wenzel cites in his post asserting that a military coup* is happening right now, Gen. Kelly is a complete control freak, and it isn’t just that he as WH chief of staff is “running the White House,” it is that he and his fellow incompetent psychopath generals are running the country, with The Donald being the Puppet-in-Chief.
But Trump can go back to his old self by firing all these generals and bringing back his personal staff but also bringing in actual advisors who can guide him on a non-interventionist foreign policy that he campaigned on. (I know, he also said things like “bomb the sh*t out of ISIS,” etc., because he doesn’t understand that our own government created ISIS and continues to support it, but whatever.)
*(However, the actual coup occurred on November 22, 1963. If you believe otherwise, I have a bridge to sell you.)
