Trump to Fire 50 US Cruise Missiles To Erase Syrian Chemical Attack Air Base, China Next?

Politics / US Military Apr 07, 2017 - 01:03 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

It appears President Trump is to authorise the imminent launch of air strikes on Syria towards helping break the narrative that he is an 'Manchurian candidate' working for Putin who played a significant hand in getting Trump elected last year. Perhaps Putin failed to properly calculate whether it really is be better for Russia to have an erratic 70 year old toddler in the White House than a rational continuation of the Obama regime in Hillary Clinton.


The choreography of an US missile attack is one of where the Russians as expected veto a UN resolution against Syria which would give the green light for Trump to authorise a military strike against the Syrian airbase responsible for Tuesdays chemical weapon attack that killed as many as 100 civilians, mostly women and children in Idlib province. Given Syrian Russia supported air defence capabilities, then the attack will likely involve dozens of US cruise missiles, probably numbering as many as 50 to obliterate the air base responsible and any supporting infrastructure to deter future chemical attacks against rebel areas.

This would appear to be a win-win situation for the Trump regime, by attempting to kill two birds with one stone. Firstly to crush the narrative that Trump is working in the interests of Czar Putin who backs the Assad regime, and secondly to deflate calls from America's deep state neo-con elite who seek regime change in Syria, who have been using their deep state CIA and NSA infrastructure to undermine the Trump regime. Also such a large strike would likely also result in russian military causalities, which will be seen as being the icing on the cake for the Trump regime. Which I am sure Trump would soon propagandise in a twitter torrent of "How can be working for the Russian's when I just killed Russian military on the ground in Syria"...

However, this is all just a side show for the main event which is Trump's meeting with the Chinese dictator. In fact the timing of a large missile attack will be just as much a shot across China's bow than a calculated warning to Russia.

So whilst the mainstream press pundits in advance of the visit are busy painting a lovey, dovey friendly picture of what is likely to transpire, which is completely ignorant of Trumps 'China raping America' rhetoric during the election campaign. Then I think they are in for a rude awakening as my in-depth analysis and series of videos in "Trump Reset - War with China" illustrates:

The Trump Reset - 2 The Putin Doctrine

Which means that it is highly likely that Trump is going to go off the script that has been circulating in the press and be quite rude to the Chinese dictator, by demanding action be taken on North Korea, the US/China trade imbalance (china stealing jobs) and on the land grab underway in the South China Sea. Basically Trump does not do let's be friends, Trump does "Look China's President came and I won one on x,y,z issue."

all of which are flash points I have covered in my above series.

Brexit and UK Military Action in Syria

As my recent in-depth analysis includes that British military action in Syria and elsewhere across North Africa would be in the strategic interests of Britain during the Brexit negotiations.
