I've never been a big
believer in strategic coincidence. The announcement that Steve Bannon
was being removed from the National Security Council concerned me. Mr.
Bannon has been a voice against foreign interventionism so loved by the
CIA and the NEOCONs. The timing was suspicious considering recent
events in Syria.
Bashar al-Assad is being
blamed for a chemical weapons attack against the forces of Al-Nusra
Front in Idlib. Maybe he did it, maybe not. A warehouse that had been
identified as a munitions storage depot for Al-Nusra Front seems a
strange target for use of a sarin gas bomb. That the warehouse was the
target does not appear to be in dispute. The only thing in dispute is
what type of bomb was used. Last I checked, and those that know my
background also know that I am an expert on these issues; sarin gas
delivery mechanisms are not really useful for leveling buildings. These
allegations against Assad are suspicious; eerily similar to the 2013 chemical weapon used in Ghouta, Syria

To read more, or make a comment on this post,
are saying this was a false-flag attack orchestrated by the CIA with
the intent of causing a release of chemical weapons being stockpiled by
Al-Nusra to force President Trump to take military action against
Assad. Again, the timing is strange as Secretary of State Tillerson had
announced less than a week earlier that Assad could remain President
of Syria as long as he continued to support U.S. coalition forces with
the destruction of ISIS. But now, all that has changed. The war drums
are beating. Tillerson made statements today that "Coalition Steps Are Underway to Remove Assad
". All this was occurring with the backdrop of the National Security Council being packed with NEOCONs like Mike Pompeo, Nikki Haley and Rick Perry
. I find this a curious selection of individuals to say the least.
could make the argument that Bannon was being removed because of his
well-publicized disagreements with Jared Kushner, the President's
son-in-law. If that were the case, wouldn't Bannon be the first to admit
it? One could also speculate that he was removed because he was the
only voice on the National Security Council opposed to intervention in
Syria and someone who might be skeptical of Assad's selection of a sarin
gas bomb to level an Al-Nusra Front warehouse. It is possible that
his opinion would not be welcome in a room of war hawks and NEOCONs
determined to overthrow yet another country that dared to challenge U.S.
"AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK
SYRIA - IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT
FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!"

as a candidate, Donald Trump was severely critical of US foreign
interventionism. He was also critical of our policies leading to the
destruction of Libya and Syria. I find it remarkable that all that
could change in the blink of an eye over the alleged use of a chemical
weapon by someone that only a week earlier we had publicly announced
could remain President of Syria. You see, it just makes no sense that
Assad would use chemical weapons to level an Al-Nusra Front munitions
building. It makes no sense that Assad would risk his relationship with a
new US administration that was showing support for him.
difficult for me to accept that President Trump could reverse course
on Syria so quickly before the facts of the alleged use of chemical
weapons by Assad are even investigated. Banging the war drums and
threatening to overthrow the Syrian government does not seem to be a
responsible course of action prior to an investigation that has been demanded by Syria's major ally; Russia
I would certainly hate to see these events result in our nation and
Russia engaging in open conflict. Something here just does not add up.
Is President Trump so impetuous as to risk war with Russia over what
could just be a Syrian bomb striking a chemical munition in a known
Al-Nusra Front munition warehouse?
One other theory
has also surfaced. It's a dark theory of blackmail against the
President by the CIA and the NEOCONs that resulted in these groups
regaining control over the National Security Council and U.S. foreign
policy. The theory involves the source of friction between Steve Bannon
and Mr. Kushner. To avoid spreading gossip, I will not repeat the
details because as far as I know this theory is just wild speculation. I
will say that it would be a shame if Steve Bannon knew the truth about
these matters and failed to inform the public before U.S. servicemen
and women risk their lives to overthrow the Syrian government to
satisfy the appetite of the NEOCONs
