“Regime Change” Continues under the Trump Administration

Timothy Alexander Guzman, Silent Crow News – During Trump’s ‘USA Thank You Tour’ in Fayetteville, North Carolina last December, Trump said that “we will stop racing to topple foreign regimes that we know nothing about, that we shouldn’t be involved with” he continued “Instead, our focus must be on defeating terrorism and destroying ISIS, and we will.” According to The Washington Post, both the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley and the Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, both have emphasized different strategies to remove Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power. The Washington Post story ‘Tillerson, Haley issue differing statements on future of Assad in Syria’ states that “U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday appeared to offer differing views on the future of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.” Their views on Assad’s future lead to the same conclusion; Assad will be removed from power one way or another. In an interview on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’, Haley said ” that the United States does not see a peaceful political resolution for Syria’s civil war as long as Assad remains in power.” We don’t see a peaceful Syria with Assad in there.” Haley was basically repeating what former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samatha Powers repeatedly called for, and that was for Assad’s removal from power. The Washington Post published Tillerson’s comments regarding the future of the Assad government:

“Our priority is first the defeat of ISIS,” Tillerson said. “Once we can eliminate the battle against ISIS, conclude that and it is going quite well, then we hope to turn our attention to cease fire agreements between the regime and opposition forces.

“In that regard, we are hopeful that we can work with Russia and use their influence to achieve areas of stabilization throughout Syria and create the conditions for a political process through Geneva in which we can engage all of the parties on the way forward and it is through that political process that we believe the Syrian people will lawfully be able to decide the fate of Bashar al-Assad,” he added

What is so incredibly bizarre about Trump’s orders to bomb Syria is the fact that the Syrian government was on the verge of defeating ISIS in most areas of Syria including the rural area of Hama, Palmyra and other areas once controlled by the Islamic State. Why would the Syrian government use chemical weapons in this point in time to intentionally murder innocent Syrian people when the defeat of the Islamic State terrorists was imminent? How would Assad benefit from such an attack on the Syrian people and risk condemnation from the international community? It makes no logical sense. It was clearly a false-flag operation committed by the U.S. funded terrorists that would justify the U.S. and its allies to attack Syrian government forces and retake areas they once occupied.

However, Assad is not the only democratically elected President on the list for regime change; the U.S. seeks to remove Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro from power according to Telesur:

“If confirmed, I would urge close cooperation with our friends in the hemisphere, particularly Venezuela’s neighbors Brazil and Colombia, as well as multilateral bodies such as the OAS, to seek a negotiated transition to democratic rule in Venezuela,” the former executive in ExxonMobil told Latin America Goes Global.

He further claimed that the economic crisis in the oil-rich South American country was “largely a product of its incompetent and dysfunctional government, first under Hugo Chavez, and now under his designated successor, Nicolas Maduro”

The Trump administration is committed to removing Assad from power based on another false-flag operation. There was no investigation. Trump took the advice from the intelligence community and the pentagon and ordered 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles into Syria hitting the Shayrat air base in Homs province to send Assad a message. Back on May 7th, 2013, Dailymail.com published what a senior UN official by the name of Carla Del Ponte had said about the “Syrian moderate rebels” using chemical weapons (in this case “sarin gas”) against civilians and Syrian government forces:

“Our investigators have been in neighbouring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals, and there are strong, concrete suspicions, but not yet incontrovertible proof, of the use of sarin gas,” said Del Ponte in an interview with Swiss-Italian television. “This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities”

Last Friday, Haley told the UN Security Council that “The United States took a very measured step last night,” Haley said. “We are prepared to do more, but we hope that will not be necessary.” Expect more attacks against the Assad government and a new push by the Islamic State to retake territories they once occupied. Regime change is a policy that the Trump administration will continue. War is inevitable with Syria. Therefore, Syria and its allies (Russia and Iran) need to prepare for more aggressive actions against Syria.

Trump is following his marching orders as many other presidents have before him. Trump works for the New World Order establishment or what he called “the swamp’. Trump was never going to drain the swamp because American presidents don’t get into the White House and do what they promised to the American people, instead they carry-out agendas for the corporations, the Military-Industrial complex and the banking cartels. Washington is also in the pockets of special interest groups including the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) who want nothing more than for the Syrian government to be dismantled which will benefit Israel’s goal of expanding its territory and keep the natural-resource rich Golan Heights indefinitely. Trump’s rhetoric during the campaign about disastrous U.S. interventions under Obama and why he would not commit U.S. forces to new military adventures was nonsense. Trump’s agenda is for the U.S. to control the Middle East and have Israel, a staunch U.S. ally as the only nation with nuclear weapons capability that can easily defend itself against long-time adversaries as Iran. Making “America Great Again” is about making America a dominant power in the world. Last February, during a White House conference with several governors, trump laid out his proposal to increase military spending to basically “win” wars:

We must ensure that our courageous servicemen and women have the tools they can be to deter war, and when called upon to fight in our name, only do one thing: Win,” he stated.

The president continued, “We have to win. We have to start winning wars again. I have to say, when I was young, in high school and college, everybody used to say we never lost a war. We never lost a war. You remember, some of you were right there with me, you remember, America never lost”

Trump will realize very soon that a war against Syria, Iran and Russia would be another quagmire just like Vietnam, only this time around, it would be much worst for U.S. forces.
