McMaster Ties Himself into a Pretzel Trying to Explain Syrian Strategy
The_Real_Fly, Zero Hedge, Apr 9 2017
The one thing the good General was clear on was the fact that Russia needed to figure out what they’re doing in the middle east. Clearly, Pindostan knows exactly what to do, which entails wars that never end costing trillions of dollars, leading to the deaths of millions. McMaster said in an interview on Fox News Sunday:
What we’re saying is, other countries have to ask themselves some hard questions. Russia should ask themselves, what are we doing here, why are we supporting this murderous regime that is committing mass murder of its own population and using the most heinous weapons available? I think, as you saw with the strike, that there has to be a degree of simultaneous activity as well as sequencing of the defeat of Daesh first. What you have in Syria is a very destructive cycle of violence, perpetuated by Daesh, obviously, but also by this regime and their Iranian and Russian sponsors. (Our goals are) the defeat of Daesh (and) a significant change in the nature of the Assad regime, and its behavior in particular.
Watch the entire interview above. It’s amazing to see the General try to twist his way out of illogical narratives into clear, concise, policy decisions. Towards the end of the interview, he was resolute on his options for North Korea, which basically entailed risking nuclear war in order to ‘de-nuclearize’ the North Koream regime. I am sure the good folks living in Seoul and Tokyo are thrilled with Pindo meddling into Asian affairs.
H R McMaster Manipulating Intelligence Reports to Trump
Mike Cernovich, Medium.com, Apr 9 2017
Current National Security Adviser Herbert Raymond “H R” McMaster is manipulating intelligence reports given to Pres Trump. McMaster is plotting how to sell a massive ground war in Syria to Presi Trump with the help of disgraced former CIA director and convicted criminal David Petraeus, who mishandled classified information by sharing documents with his mistress. As NSA, McMaster’s job is to synthesize intellience reports from all other agencies. Pres Trump is being given an inaccurate picture of the situation in Syria, as McMaster is seeking to involve Pindostan in a full-scale war in Syria. The McMaster-Petraeus plan calls for 150,000 grunts in Syria. Many SOF veterans including Gen Votel have raised serious concerns about McMaster’s plans for Syria. Sources also suggest that McMaster is sharing classified information with Petraeus, whose security clearance was revoked. McMaster was called Petraeus’ golden child by some commenters, noting the strong influence Petraeus had over McMaster. Petraeus was considered for the position of NSA, but withdrew his name from consideration once McMaster’s name was included on the short list. McMaster’s appointment allowed Petraeus to maintain control over the NSC without bringing his considerable baggage to the position. Derek Harvey, the top Middle East adviser in the NSC, has close ties with Petraeus and is close with McMaster. Harvey reportedly faces a massive EEO complaint from subordinates, although that investigation remains open. Harvey and McMaster have been trying to subvert JJCoS Gen Dunford and Sec Def ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis. Mattis and Dunford support working with our allies in the fight against Daesh. Harvey and McMaster are advocating for a massive Pindo-only ground force. Two men were standing in between another Pindo-led war in the Middle East: Gen Mike Flynn and Steve Bannon. Flynn was removed after Susan Rice unmasked classified information concerning him. Bannon’s role within the White House was weakened by McMaster, who demanded Bannon be removed from his advisory position at NSC. McMaster’s friends in the media, as part of a broader strategy to increase McMaster’s power, have claimed Jared Kushner and Bannon had a major falling out. In fact Kushner and Bannon are united in their opposition to McMaster’s plan. If McMaster and Petraeus have their way, Pindostan will find itself in another massive war in the Middle East.
