The Fake News would have us believe that Trump’s pullout was not principled, a long-overdue battle with the permanent war. No, it was only a whim made after a phone conversation with the Turkish dictator. Their usual drama bullshit.
“The claim by Trump advisors that they were taken by surprise was indeed disingenuous. What happened last week was that Trump followed up on the clear policy he had laid down in April….
“Trump is now well aware that it is virtually impossible to carry out the foreign policy that he wants without advisors who are committed to the same objective…he must find people who have remained outside the system during the permanent war years while being highly critical of its whole ideology and culture…[then] the last two years of this term in office could decisively clip the wings of the bureaucrats and generals who have created the permanent war state we find ourselves in today.”
