Trump Pushes Back Against Neo-Con Plan to Invade Syria


Troops massing as deep state plots regime change

The Trump administration is currently locked in a heated debate over whether to launch a full ground invasion of Syria, with hundreds of thousands of soldiers now massing.

According to White House sources who spoke to Infowars, Trump is reticent to see U.S. troops embroiled in yet another Middle East quagmire, but is under pressure from top neo-cons in his administration to prevent Russia from dominating the region as the fall of ISIS nears.

Trump has refused to agree to a no fly zone over Syria and does not want to directly attack Assad’s forces in Damascus. However, Assad is apparently backing away from a deal he made with the Pentagon four years ago to step down from power in order to prevent a U.S. military bombardment that Obama pushed for back in 2013.

The air strike ordered by Trump was apparently a reminder to Assad of the deal he struck to step down once jihadists had been defeated.

Troop numbers are now being massively escalated in western Iraq to reinforce this message, including the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit, to back up and cover the flank for U.S. Army ground forces in case of possible attack by Assad.

Trump’s response to the alleged chemical weapons attack allowed him to look decisive and was a show of strength towards China and North Korea. It also served to temporarily silence the repeated accusations that he is in collusion with Russia.

Trump’s aim with the air strike was to destroy Syria’s remaining chemical weapons to make Assad follow through on the deal. If he didn’t act, Trump would have been eviscerated by his critics as being equally as weak as Obama.

However, increasingly prominent neo-cons within the administration, led by National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster, are exploiting the circumstances to maneuver Trump into a position where he is…

    “Allowed him to look decisive”? Really? 23-26 of 59 Tomahawks hit the target. Wow! Where did the others land? $3-$5 mill. in damages cost @$90mill USD. Ah, Decisive indeed!

    “Trump is reticent to see U.S. troops embroiled in yet another Middle East quagmire, but is under pressure from top neo-cons in his administration to prevent Russia from dominating the region as the fall of ISIS nears.”

    So let’s see, who in the hell is president??

    Yeah, that scary Russia, they nuked Japan, oh no that was us. They have a 1000 bases worldwide, oh no, we do. They fight Israels enemies, us again. They take on nations too weak to fight back, yep, us again. They use false flag operations on their own people for validation to war on other nations, wrong again, 9/11 was ours. Just WHAT do these sons of Satan do? Must be something.

    President Trump, just say no to these neo-cons; and if you can, just fire them.

      That he was anti-neocon during the campaign and now is pro tells me he is either deeply dishonest or is not in control. Anyway, what we are getting is not what we voted for. American’s don’t want wars for greater Israel. We want peace and minding our own business, not doing Israel’s bidding. America first? America has zero national security interests in the middle east, or in Europe for that matter.

    Trump now has two choices, 1st; he can attack Syria, North Korea, Yemen and Iraq and destroy the entire base he has created by his so far false promises of not getting us into any needless wars potentially destroying the entire nation in the process, or, 2nd; he opposes the Neocons and maintains his base of support and brings America back to a place of prosperity where Americans can once again have a little trust in the system that has opposed THEM for almost half a century.

  • yep

    the neo cons zionistjews…will wait and convince trump in the end…we are going to a nuke ww3…prepare….and oh yea…they will start the draft….they will go for women and men….if a woman is mother they will not draft her… for all you young men and women out there get ready….we are going to a nuke ww3…AND YOU ARE NOT COMING BACK… what are you going to do……

    If Trump invades or meaningfully attacks Assad, his presidency is over. He will be in an official, if de facto alliance with al Qaeda/ISIS and at that point I would call for his prosecution for treason myself. He has already committed borderline treason in my opinion by providing air cover for an ISIS advance against the Syrian Army.

    Looks like the Jews fooled us again folks.

    The lying neo-cons and Israelis played it wrong in 2001. If their false flag 9/11 had been pinned on Syria instead of Afghanistan, with the whole world behind them (“We are all American now!”), the coalition would have taken Syria within a year. They’d have controlled the coastline of the whole Eastern Mediterranean from which to take the whole Middle East one step at a time.

    I guess all that money the CIA would have lost dealing Afghani smack was just too tempting.

      The new revision is that all these 911 wars in M.E are for pipes and oil and dinar petrodollar. Guess that is why Osama as prime perp makes sense ??
      ALL 911 wars in M.E are for ISRAEL interests. Google Trojan Horse Trumps speech to AIPAC and tell me why any of his actions now surprise you?

    No one is more pro Israel than Trump. So neo-conning is going to be his game. Conning being the operative word. There needs to be heavy conning to help that middle east leper.
