Trump’s position in The middle east is clearly tailored to US Petro Dollar hegemony. A Gas attack by Assad makes no sense what so ever, Trump’s response makes sense only in the context of the Greater Israel solution advanced by Neo-Cons and Zionists for as long as the Sykes-Picot agreement.
The Syrian Proxy War is all about Gas Pipelines and Petro Dollar Hegemony coupled with a Colonial and Imperialist approach to Far Right Wing Israeli Apartheid Zionism.
One can do a lot worse than considering these words from Carol Quigley in Tragedy and Hope.
Quiggleys words.p.232 tragedy and Hope.
´´but criticism should have been directed rather at the hypocrisy and lack
of realism in the ideals of the wartime propaganda and at the lack of honesty of the chief negotiators in carrying on the pretense that these ideals were still in effect while they violated them daily, and necessarily violated them. The settlements were clearly made by secret negotiations, by the Great Powers exclusively, and by power politics. They had to be. No settlements could ever have been made on any other bases. The failure of the chief negotiators (at least the Anglo-Americans) to admit this is regrettable, but behind their
reluctance to admit it is the even more regrettable fact that the lack of political experience and political education of the American and English electorates made it dangerous for the negotiators to admit the facts of life in international political relationships.”
President Trump may have offered up the material to be hoisted upon his own Petard. The Current Press Conference in Washington is A pretty demeaning affair for the intelligence of all people still in possession of their critical faculties.
