First let’s set a foundation; (source: Spiegel Online by Gebauer & Stark) Retired Lt. General Michael Flynn, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency who came up through intelligence positions in Iraq and Afghanistan, says that the George W. Bush administration’s Iraq war was a tremendous blunder that helped to create the self-proclaimed Islamic State, or ISIS. “It was a huge error,” Flynn said. “As brutal as Saddam Hussein was, it was a mistake to just eliminate him,” Flynn went on to say. “The same is true for Gadhafi and for Libya, which is now a failed state. The historic lesson is that it was a strategic failure to go into Iraq. History will not be and should not be kind with that decision.”
When told by Der Spiegel reporters Matthias Gebauer and Holger Stark that the Islamic State would not “be where it is now without the fall of Baghdad,” Flynn, without reservations, said: “Yes, absolutely.” Now it is known, as far back as 2003 what systemic risks existed and yet the invasion of Iraq went forward. What is the serious problem for Trump? Because they (the Public or even the Bush Family) are fearful of hearing the truth they repel at the idea that someone might actually speak it!
The fact is that it has been Objective One, since the Soviets took control of East Germany and isolated much of Eastern Europe, to isolate and diminish Russia and their influences in the Black Sea, former Eastern Bloc and the form Soviet southeastern-to-China perimeter. Obama has taken on that objective and were it not for U.K. P.M. Cameron’s inability to deliver the vote/endorsement from Parliament the so-called crossing of the Red-Line would have been on open-invitation for the U.S.-Lead corps to take-down Assad and, by extension, work toward the destabilizing of Iran.
It is very reasonable to conclude the following: silently the U.S. backs the forces behind ISIS and that the Iranian Nuke Deal was pursued in an effort to camouflage the West’s true intent. For those who follow TIMF you’ll not find this information to be unfamiliar news, for those who don’t then understand this: A direct conflict (in the Middle-East) is inevitable and not because it is unavoidable, but more so because it has been determined to be of strategic interest to those (for the very same reason they want you ignorant) whose controlling interests are enhanced by the deprivation of those who they control.
You don’t have to like Trump to grasp the significance of his running as he may very well be the last window-of-opportunity for middle-America to make a return to the table-of-influence. He’s the canary-in-the-mine so to speak and I wonder if he’s come to grips with the risk he’s assumed by challenging the Pagan Global Order.
