Charles Goyette thinks Trump was played by the intelligence agencies and is barrelling towards catastrophe. From Goyette at lewrockwell.com:
Most of the things worth remembering during the 2008 presidential debates were uttered by Ron Paul. But Mike Gravel, the former U.S. senator from Alaska had a moment. Years earlier in the Senate, Gravel had distinguished himself for his opposition to the Vietnam War and the draft.
Then, in the first Democrat debate of the 2008 cycle, Gravel looked at the candidates posturing their bellicosity on the stage around him, including the now notorious warmongers Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and said, “I got to tell you, after standing up with them, some of these people frighten me — they frighten me.”
Gravel was right to be fearful. And yet the interventionists are always somehow able to pass themselves off as wise and judicious.
They are anything but.
When Barack Obama announced in 2012 that Assad’s use of chemical weapons in Syria would be a red line for (more overt) U.S. military intervention, the truly wise and sophisticated – basically anyone with a passing familiarity with the history of forged documents, secret provocations, false flag events, and other phony war pretexts – knew for a certainty that a chemical weapons event would soon follow.
There are just too many players in the field that want the U.S. – then and now — to do their fighting for them. And so, it wasn’t long before a sarin gas attack occurred, one that was purportedly launched by Assad on Syrian rebels.
Fortunately, there is still the occasional serious journalist, standing out like a grown up among the State’s scribbling children. Among the adults is investigative reporter Seymour Hersh. By 2014 Hersh had discovered that the Syrian sarin incident the year before was the work of Turkey (with the help of the Saudis), manipulating events in Syria to draw the U.S. into fighting its regional opponents for it. For those who hadn’t swallowed the Iraq war kool-aid, it called to mind the hidden motives in which documents were forged to create a pretext for that debacle.
