While the world and the American public focused on a potential military escalation in Syria, the Government of the US experienced a silent Coup d’état.
Obama is “now determined to put more emphasis on the ‘degrade’ part of what the administration has said is the goal of a military strike against Syria—to ‘deter and degrade’ Mr. Assad’s ability to use chemical weapons,” the New York Times reported Friday, citing unnamed Pentagon officials.
There is something classically interesting about this wording. Pure, sinister propaganda in its most insidious form.
The New York Times. Trial balloon center of the world. Unnamed PENTAGON officials, not White House.
I am convinced more than ever that every word is now important in the public persuasion / manipulation / deception agenda, and collaboration of mainstream media. Instead of the public’s watch dog, media is now the Elitists’ lap dog.
“Obama is NOW determined” —NOW? DETERMINED? This was the Pentagon gameplan all along. Obama is definitely NOT determined. His reluctance to follow the clearly dubious Mid East military ‘solution’ is palpable. He knows it will make the situation worse, but he is getting narrow selective advice that he “MUST” do it or weaken “the Presidency.”
Anyone with doubts, read or watch the movie “Thirteen Days”. You will understand perfectly. This is deja vu all over again.
This is the inevitable conclusion that has been eating at me during this whole Syria episode.
There has been a COUP of the United States Government. Obama being the amateur that TPTB have been looking for to manipulate – The profiteers, militarists, CIA and NSA – have usurped the Government of the United States. They have not yet told Obama or the American People. The media simply reports the reality, in code-speak.
Brennan at CIA, and Clapper, the unindicted perjurer at NSA, along with some (possibly sub- ?) JCOS military, under the guise of giving “PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY” to the CinC, have so filtered Obama’s information, that he is making decisions against his core beliefs, and his better judgement. He may even believe that the evidence he is provided, in terms of “government conclusions” (not intelligence agency-verifiable evidence) has not been dog-wagged.It is obvious to me that he is making all these warmongering decisions reluctantly. Regardless of what your prior impressions of the man were, this is not his standard operating procedure.
He is mouthing what his “advisors” are telling him must be done as President. Unfortunately, since he has NO experience for the position he holds, he has so far conceded decision authority to underlings. His true self came out, when right before announcing the original limited strike, he decided to get Congressional approval, indicating he still has a conscience, and hopefully, an internal BS/fraud detector.
HIS MINIONS… KERRY and Co., FIRST said he would go ahead and bomb anyhow, again forcing narrow options. Susan Rice did something similar last night. She was belligerent, after Obama had already indicated receptivity to negotiating international control of the CW. Next, Kerry AGAIN comes out and says Assad has ONE WEEK to DELIVER the weapons, an impossible requirement. Putin, meanwhile, says, the military option must first be off the table for negotiations to work. A new RED LINE, locking Obama into either admitting his representatives don’t speak for him (weakness) or forcing the options back to attack, now with a wider mission (for them the same mission as always.) Multiple mouthpieces shows conclusively Obama’s loss of control and inability to lead from the front.
Elements within the administration and the Pentagon are pushing a reluctant Obama into a war he doesn’t want. Even when he accidentally bumps into a non-war solution, courtesy of Vladimir Putin, the military or his aides maneuver him back into a narrow, military option corner, now better described as “the WAR option”.
NOW, the LIMITED ‘punishment’ scenario is off the table, according to the NYT. No doubt Obama’s personal, irrelevant purposeless military strategy, it was characterized by JCOS Chairman as available anytime (in Senate testimony) and then repeated by Obama, as a justification for his Congressional option. The military has also advised AGAINST a limited attack because it has no definable military objective. It had zero military or strategic logic, and therefore was probably Obama’s means of halfway buying into the concept.
OF COURSE the plan is to widen the war. For those that wanted it, it always was.
If Obama hasn’t yet figured out via his OTJ training this past week, that he is being maneuvered, he doesn’t deserve the job. He is the only person in the room who is President of the United States. His test is not whether he can go to war and/or not show himself to be indecisive internationally.
His challenge is whether he can recognize his weakness within his own administration, and find it within himself to become THE President. In this I wish him well, because if he can’t, the country is in grave danger for the next 3 years without a real leader. Putin sees Obama’s dilemma clearly and decisively. At this moment he is probably the ONLY one telling truth to power. The world isn’t just watching what happens in Syria. It is watching the internal politics at the White House.
If circumstances allow a diplomatic accommodation, what will be the next false flag concocted? Where will it be, and how much more serious the threshold of carnage to “force Obama to do the ‘right’ (sic) thing” – in the minds of the financial/military industrial cabal? It is also about time to acknowledge, and openly discuss, the role of Israel in every dubious requirement for American credibility and military involvement in the Mid East. Their fingerprints are all over this event, as the SOLE beneficiaries, other than the cabalists. They, too, have NOT ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention after 20 years. If Syria now signs, they will be the ONLY Mideast country NOT to. Unequivocal support for Israel and their illegal actions, occupations, and their own unpublicized atrocities, are a burden the US should reconsider, if there is ever to be any solutions in the area. Our self-image as egalitarian, fair and just does not stand the test of truth, when it includes “Israel, right or wrong”.
Perhaps at risk of his Presidency, or frankly, even potentially his life, if he challenges this cabal, or Israel, Obama needs to clean house, and take control. It is HIS Presidency. He alone is the man elected. He must identify and eliminate advisors who serve their own interests, not his nor America’s. These financiers, oil oligarchs, and militarists will not stop if they fail here. Another, more heinous event is already being planned if this fails, and the evidence for it is being manufactured in video studios. Obama needs to expose them as the liars, traitors and manipulators they are. Otherwise, the failure to do so will be recognized as his greatest failure of all, both internationally and domestically – the failure of a leader of a great power to adequately lead, on his vision, not the succumbing to the greed and perfidy of the shadow elite.
Obama must look inside himself and determine whether he can say to his Cabinet, as did Abraham Lincoln, “Twelve in opposition; one in favor. The Ayes have it!” Godspeed, Mr. President.
