Trump wants to bring home all remaining troops in Syria. Mattis disagrees and submits his resignation. Democrats want to impeach Trump for pulling troops. And the UN – they want to hold a Council Commission meeting in 2019 to force Syria to be ruled by – the UN. It ain’t over until the fat lady sings!
Why would the UN be involved at all?
Apparently, the entire peace process has come to a standstill because the UN demands a Constitutional Committee made up of 150 members chosen and affirmed by Russia, Iran, Turkey and the UN. Syria has no say. These 150 constitutional reform members will redraft Syria’s constitution and hold a new and improved Presidential election 18 months hence. The UN special appointee to the Security Council for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, takes full self lauding credit for everything positive, and denies responsibility for anything negative, 350,000 deaths, and has spent four years working to find a ‘resolution’. Now his four year term is up and as of December 31sthe will be replaced.
It would appear that a significant hurdle is the UN’s arrogance in finding that, “The United Nations alone, he stressed, has the legitimacy and mandate to “bless” a Constitutional Committee”. In the meantime, Assad wants to build and has taken contracts from a number of countries and businesses who see the future potential – as in, $$$$.
“Following yesterday’s briefing, members of the Security Council paid tribute to the Special Envoy’s work, pledged support for his successor and reaffirmed their support for a Syrian-led political process shepherded by the United Nations.” In other words, the UN is determined to have their hand, arm, and shoulder heavily weighted in anything Syria, most likely because the UN has numerous NGO favorites with whom their contracts for reconstruction would benefit.
The US special representative for Syria, Jim Jeffreys, was not even at the meeting having canceled his appearance. The reason for his cancellation could be aligned with Mattis resignation, or simply the innate futility of the situation, run by a nearly defunct United Nations, which is intent on the creation of committees to regulate committees which regulate – committees. A parallel to the Swamp that Trump is widely attempting to dissolve.
Part and parcel of the meeting included an argument regarding the purported ‘White Helmets’ who were portrayed by the media/UN as a humanitarian group aimed at helping the children and women amidst the war zone. According to Syria and Russia, they were terrorists disguised to disrupt and create further chaos in a disingenuous ploy to skew perception and were actually in the forefront of gas attacks, deaths, and casualties.
Lest we forget, initially, Obama supported Al Nusra, among others, before determining they were a segment of ISIS. It is partially because of these riffs, that the Constitutional Council is at a standstill unable to trust a UN or US or EU proposal.
Most Americans, as in The People, not the government, just want other countries to rule themselves and let the chips fall where they may. The obstructionist approach has had huge grievance effects, and The People are weary.
The conflict in Syria was initiated by US President, Obama to oust Assad. But it didn’t go exactly as planned, and unlike the Ukrainian Revolution that saw an immediate flight of Yanukovich, Assad stood by his country to the end. Personally, I have no opinion on Assad, although the media has certainly been brutal in their portrayal, but given they have been equally bludgeoning toward Trump, Melania, and anyone aligned with them, I can no longer have any committed opinion about – anything via media presentation.
That being said, Assad may very well be Syria’s Trump. And the Truth lives in Alice’s Wonderland.
In that venue, we have just been made aware of the fact that the CNN Journalist of the Year, Claas Relotius whose articles were picked up by Cicero, Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, NZZ am Sonntag, Financial Times Deutschland, taz, Die Welt, SZ-Magazin, Die Weltwoche, Zeit Online and Reportagen, completely and wholly fabricated his stories in which demonizing the US was a theme.
He is One – of perhaps hundreds. And so, in that vein, we can not rely on media interpretation, sensationalism, opinion, or in-depth journalism. We can not rely on anything that occurred during the entire Obama administration. We can not rely on our intelligence agencies.
What we do know?
The UK, Germany, France, The Netherlands, and Sweden governments are not our allies, and haven’t been for at least decades. They may be allies of a power elite shadow – but they are completely and utterly anti-The People.
That being said, it is important to re-analyze the events of the past to dissect what the true agenda was that is our current present, in order to determine who and what is the truth in moving forward to the future.
Because, it is a fair bet, it is nothing like what what we were fed.
