I spent most of my adult life believing republicans/conservatives were the warmongers. Now, over a half century later, I find that republicans/conservatives don’t have their heads as far up their asses, when it comes to promoting and cheering on this government’s continual war (‘foreign policy’), as the old and new liberal/democrats, who have become the frothing at the mouth warmongers of today.

A half century ago, the true liberal left would have never placed any trust in the mainstream talking-heads, nor would they have been supportive of any of the wars this demonic empire is involved in at the moment. I can’t imagine myself or other left leaning folks, way back when, cheering Johnson or Nixon for bombing the shit out of Vietnamese, Cambodian and Laotian men, women and children.

{FYI: the major antiwar protest occurred at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, not the RNC in Miami, Florida, since up to that point, President Johnson, a democrat, had been in charge of the war in Vietnam.}

And many of the lefties I am referring to here, are my age or older. These either brain dead/senile or hypocritical/two-faced ‘liberals’, all of a sudden, have complete faith in the mainstream media talking-heads (except of course, for Fox News, whose anchors, recently, have been speaking out against Trump’s attack on Syria and his provoking of Russia). Oh yes, it seems that as long as Trump continues to promote war with Russia and China, and bomb the hell out of the Syrians and the rest of the middle-east peoples, he is these new, mutated-liberals’ man, except of course, for his views on their oh so sacred cows: #Me Too, gun control/confiscation, “AGW”, immigration and gay/trans-sexual rights, etc, etc: US media love war more than they hate Trump & egg him on to strike Syria

I guess for this new species of ‘liberal’, anything goes, as long as it is in agreement with what Hillary would have done (like “What Would Jesus Do?”), if she hadn’t have totally fucked her POTUS chances by being her psycho-self, and referring to the vast majority of working poor Americans as “The Deplorables”, which, by the way, was the very definition of “the pot calling the kettle black”.

NATO/Europe is dying a slow but certain death, as is this Anglo-Zionist Empire. And I don’t hear the rest of humanity crying over it. And neither will you find any tears running down my cheeks:

Conservative pundits hammer Trump for US-led strikes in Syria

Published time: 14 Apr, 2018

In the wake of US-led airstrikes against Syria following an alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, many of US President Donald Trump’s most ardent supporters have vehemently criticized the action.

Conservative writers, bloggers and newscasters that have long stood by Trump are abandoning the president in the wake of his latest intervention in Syria for breaking one of his main campaign promises: to refrain from meddling in the Middle East. Many have even retweeted several of Trump’s own criticisms of past administrations’ actions in the Middle East as a reminder of just how galling these latest strikes are to many in his support base.

While many of his supporters voiced their criticism of Trump’s ‘one-and-done’ strike against a Syrian airfield in April 2017, others saw it as a token gesture to appease the international community in the wake of an alleged chemical weapons attack carried out by pro-Assad forces. US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis admitted in early February that the US had yet to find evidence to justify the 2017 cruise missile strikes.

Conservative firebrand and Fox News host Tomi Lahren, a vocal supporter of Trump since his election, decried the return to US foreign intervention that became the hallmark of both the Bush and Obama presidencies.

Lahren’s Fox News counterpart and equally outspoken political commentator Laura Ingraham suggested that the US “should rethink how we deploy our forces Middle East.”

“It is interesting, the president’s elected over a year ago, he ran on being a non-interventionist… And that’s one of the reasons Trump won this election. Because unlike the Bushes and unlike Romney and Rubio, Trump came out and said, ‘You know something? It was a mistake, and we should rethink how we deploy our forces Middle East.’ And I think, obviously a lot of people, a majority of people, agree with that.”

Outspoken political commentator Alex Jones appeared distraught while presenting news of the strikes to his audience during a marathon broadcast on the subject. And Jones was far from alone in resorting to swearing to emphasize distaste for a foreign policy more akin to Trump’s former presidential campaign rivals than the promises he himself made in 2016.

Others warned that the US had endangered Christian populations in Syria. In addition, several formerly ardent Trump supporters added that the actions could also embolden beleaguered Islamic State militants, who have been pushed to the brink of defeat across both Syria and Iraq.

Even Trump’s foreign allies and supporters have excoriated the US president’s decision to strike the Syrian military and further escalate tensions in the region just days after Trump stated that a withdrawal of US troops was imminent. Most notable among them was former UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

  1. Well sojourner, it could be the water. Fracking contaminates and just maybe we have become really fracked up.

    It is odd to see this turn around but there are a lot noninterventionist and yet the bombs still drop. Just maybe there is an agenda that is controlled by space aliens. Or a conspiracy theory that Boeing’s profits are up.

    Hell, who knows anymore! When you see Alex Jones in tears you just have to wonder!

  2. It’s all a massive mind fuck, as it always has been, Tube. It’s just that the stakes are much higher now, than they were even a century ago.
