ISIS has claimed responsibility for two Palm Sunday bombing attacks on Christian churches in Egypt, killing at least 37 people and wounding 100 others.
And Donald Trump has just launched a massive missile strike in Syria to support these very radical, terrorists? Where’s Ivanka Trump’s pity for the 37 people killed in Alexandria and Tanta today?
Meanwhile, I am sorry to say the new National Security Adviser H R McMaster has all the virtues of a robot.
He told Russia to question its support for a “murderous” Assad regime. Russia should ask what they are doing in Syria, he said.
Well, McMaster, guess what, they are there on the invitation of the Syrian government. They are there to stop massacres against Christians in Syria on a far greater scale than those that occurred in Egypt today. They are there to help stop the collapse of another secular, popular regime into a failed state, sending waves of refugees and jihadists throughout Europe and the world!
It does not occur to the superior, complacent and self righteous McMaster to ask what America is doing in Syria, does it? Everyone else in the Middle East, Europe and Russia is asking what America is doing in Syria? The self appointed Czar of the world, McMaster assumes that America ought to be there, interfering, toppling governments supported by local people on any whim only to replace them with far worse regimes.
I thought McMaster was supposed to be a thinking soldier, not some ideological robot, spewing out the slogans of the neo cons. Shame on him! This idiot, totally out of his depth like Trump, could start World War Three as he dusts down his Cold War, compartmentalized clichés, probably reckoning it will get him a fourth star from the neo cons like McCain.
In fact, McMaster could easily be one of Hillary’s war mongering generals. What’s the difference between him and all the generals that have turned Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and virtually the entire Middle East into a failed region on the basis of doubtful claims of the use of weapons of mass destruction while achieving no useful, foreign policy objective at all? And he dares present himself as a critical, intellectual and independent thinker. Sham!
Trump is finished now in my view. His last hope was that he had managed to install some sensible advisers in key positions. Instead, we find out he is a crazy, who has surrounded himself by more crazies like McMaster.
