Defense Secretary Mark Esper clarified that tanks and other “mechanized forces” were being sent to defend the oil and said the stated goal in Syria has always been “about defeating the ISIS Coalition.”
TRENDPOST: Totally absent from media coverage and political rhetoric is the fact the U.S. has illegally invaded and is occupying parts of a sovereign nation that has posed no threat to America.
The line they keep feeding that Americans keep swallowing: “If we don’t kill ISIS there, they’ll come over here,” is just a few years-old twist of the old story.
In 2011, Obama and the Arab League armed and paid radical Islamic and other mercenaries to overthrow the Bashar al-Assad government.
PUBLISHER’S NOTE: The big news on Sunday that “The Leader of Islamic State Dies in Raid,” the world’s most-wanted ISIS terrorist Abu Baker al-Baghdadi was killed by U.S. troops, is empty hype with no substantial consequences.
President Trump’s assertion, “the world is a safer place,” is as negligible as former President Obama’s bragging that U.S. troops killing Osama bin Laden in 2011 was “a testament to the greatness of our country and the determination of the American people.”
Again, it should be noted that the U.S. illegal intervention in Syria was regime change orchestrated under the Obama administration to overthrow the Assad government in 2011, when he said, “The time has come for President Assad to step aside.”
Yet, today, in the mainstream media coverage and all the political rhetoric contends that U.S. troops are in Syria to fight ISIS, along with their Kurdish allies… and most people believe the propaganda and ignore the “Obama” facts.
ABC News correspondent, Terry Moran, moronically described the killing of Baghdadi as “a big victory for the president… this is the kind of presidential leadership that people do expect.”
Doubling down on the stupidity, Bernie Sanders, Democratic candidate in The Presidential Reality Show, approved the assassination of the “murderer and terrorist” and hailed the “brave efforts of Kurds and other U.S. allies.”
It should also be noted that this “murderer and terrorist” had been badly wounded in a 2017 airstrike and played a minor role, if any, in ISIS operations.
