FLIP FLOP: AOC Suddenly Thinks Pulling Out Of Syria Is Terrible

Published

Trump Derangement syndrome on full display

After months and months of criticizing US involvement in ‘forever wars’, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has had a sudden change of mind, tweeting Tuesday that pulling US troops out of Syria could have ‘catastrophic  consequences’.

Of course, her only reason for adopting this position now is that she will oppose literally anything President Trump does.

Last year AOC ran for Congress on a promise of working to remove troops from  Syria and elsewhere:

“Alexandria believes that we must end the “forever war” by bringing our troops home, and ending the air strikes that perpetuate the cycle of terrorism throughout the world,” her 2018 campaign website noted.

She has repeatedly criticized ‘endless war’:

But now suddenly, AOC is OK with US troops staying in Syria, because… ORANGE MAN BAD.

The response was swift:

Meanwhile, some administration officials are already trying to walk back Trump’s withdrawal statements.

An anonymous senior administration official told reporters Monday “the U.S. is not removing its forces from Syria in the face of a Turkish incursion.”

Rather, the president ordered roughly 50 special operations troops in northern Syria to relocate to a different part of the country after he learned that Turkey has planned an offensive against U.S.-backed Kurdish forces in Syria. The official said that offensive had not yet begun.

Furthermore, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper tweeted then deleted the following:

It seems as if the deep state is once again papering over Trump’s promises, and the media is in lockstep.

One Month Into Presidency Biden BOMBS Syria

Back to the war machine

It took just over one month of a Joe Biden presidency for the US to turn back on the war machine and start raining missiles on Syria again.

Reuters reports that Biden ordered military air strikes in eastern Syria against facilities claimed to be used by Iran-backed militia.

The US reportedly dropped seven 500-pound JDAMs during the airstrike in Al Bukamal, reportedly killed 17 Iran-backed fighters.

The Pentagon says that the strikes were a response to ‘rocket attacks’ on February 15th against US ‘targets’ in Iraq.

Iranian militias have denied that they were involved in attacks against US facilities or troops.

“At President (Joe) Biden’s direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria,” a Pentagon statement noted.

“President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq,” said spokesman John Kirby.

Dropping bombs apparently constitutes ‘de-escalation’ now.

Some called out the hypocrisy, referencing comments from Democrats after Trump allowed a strike to be carried out in Syria almost four years ago:

Then there was also this…

Establishment Republicans are on board with the action, with Representative Michael McCaul, of House Foreign Affairs Committee commenting “Responses like this are a necessary deterrent and remind Iran, its proxies, and our adversaries around the world that attacks on U.S. interests will not be tolerated.”

The action comes after Biden ordered troops to reenter Syria, reversing President Trump’s efforts to wind down the US war machine in the Middle East.

As we previously warned, Biden’s foreign policy team vehemently supported every single disastrous military intervention over the past 2 decades:

The military-industrial complex is back.

Head Of Strategic Command Says U.S. Nuke War With China, Russia a “Real Possibility”

Unless U.S. beefs up its nuclear arsenal.

The US Strategic Command (STRATCOM) warns that a nuclear war with Russia and China is a “real possibility” unless the U.S. beefs up its nuclear arsenal.

“There is a real possibility that a regional crisis with Russia or China could escalate quickly to a conflict involving nuclear weapons, if they perceived a conventional loss would threaten the regime or state,” Vice Adm. Charles Richard wrote in the February edition of the US Naval Institute’s monthly magazine.

In response, the U.S. Military must “shift its principal assumption from ‘nuclear employment is not possible’ to ‘nuclear employment is a very real possibility,’ and act to meet and deter that reality,” according to Richard.

The STRATCOM chief also asserted that Russia and China “have begun to aggressively challenge international norms and global peace using instruments of power and threats of force in ways not seen since the height of the Cold War.”

Despite the fact that Beijing only has around 320 nuclear warheads compared to the United States’ 6,000, Richard said America would need to modernize its stockpile.

“Even if Beijing doubles its arsenal over the next decade, as the China hawks are predicting, it will still be small compared to Washington’s,” writes Dave DeCamp. “The US would have to eliminate a good amount of its arsenal to convince Beijing to participate in arms control agreements.”

The warning was given as the USS ‘John S. McCain’ was sent for the first time by the Biden administration into the South China Sea near Chinese-controlled islands.

The US Navy said the warship was asserting “navigational rights and freedoms in the vicinity of the Parcel Islands, consistent with international law.”

As we previously highlighted, former Australian Army Major-General and current Senator Jim Molan also sounded the alarm bell on tensions between the United States and China.

“In 1991, the US Navy was 600 warships strong. Now it’s less than 300,” he pointed out, adding, “We are likely in the next three to five years or in the next five to ten years to be involved in a war between China and the United States.”

Last year, Henry Kissinger also cautioned that a catastrophic conflict between America and China that will be “worse than world wars” is inevitable unless the two sides sort out their differences.
