Syria: Why is Trump Helping Al Qaida?
April 7, 2017
BIG MISTAKE – Trump was opposed to attacking Syria without Congressional approval in 2013, but this is exactly what he did today.
President Trump’s attack against Syria was done on the pretext that it was in “retaliation” for a chemical gas attack on Khan Shaykhun, a village in Idlib province. The most important fact about this allegation is that it has not been proven that Syrian forces carried out the gas attack. So, Trump bombed Syria with some 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles based on an unproven allegation and photos coming from the anti-Assad “rebels” who control Idlib province.
The “rebels” who control the area where the gas attack supposedly happened are known as Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, also known as Al Qaida in Syria. This group was formed on January 28, 2017. Tahrir al-Sham is the largest “rebel” group fighting the elected government of Syria after ISIL (Islamic State). The U.S. considers Tahrir al-Sham to be a “foreign terrorist organization.”
On March 11, 2017, Tahrir al-Sham carried out a terrorist bombing attack in Damascus’s Old City, killing 76 people and wounding 120 others. On the same day, the U.S. officially designated Tahrir al-Sham as a terrorist organization, declaring that the group still functioned as al Qaida’s Syrian affiliate. (Source: Tahrir al-Sham)
This means that based on unproven allegations, coming from a jihadist group the U.S. considers a “terrorist organization” tied to Al Qaida (which the U.S. blames for the terror atrocity of 9/11), President Trump launched 60 cruise missiles on the government of Syria!
The timing of the alleged gas attack needs some explanation. It makes no tactical sense for the Assad government to have carried out such an atrocity since Syrian forces have been successfully reclaiming territory held by the “rebels”. The U.S. government had also just announced that removing President Assad from power was no longer one of its concerns in Syria.
So, if the gas attack is a false-flag operation to be blamed on Assad why was it done?
It seems very likely it was carried out in order to change both of these developments: to reverse the U.S. position regarding Assad staying in power and to prevent the terrorist organization Tahrir al-Sham from losing more territory. On March 30, it was reported that Syrian forces had reclaimed crucial territory in the northern part of Hama province. This meant that Syrian forces were less than 6 miles from Khan Shaykhun and closing in. (See: Syrian Army turns the tables on Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in northern Hama: map)
This map from March 30, 2017, shows the territory the Syrian army (red) had reclaimed from Tahrir al-Sham (brown) in the northern part of Hama. Khan Shaykhun is on the main highway, only about 6 miles north of the Syrian forces pressing in from the East. Source: Syrian Army turns the tables on Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in northern Hama
The area where the “rebels” were losing territory last week to the Syrian army is in the southern part of the area in purple. Khan Shaykhun is in the purple peninsula almost straight south of Idlib.
To understand why President Trump launched military strikes against the Assad government of Syria one needs to understand that the real master plan for Syria is to break the country up into ethnic statelets (i.e. Balkanize). This is the Zionist (Israeli) Likud plan, known as the Yinon Plan (1982), which calls for destroying the military forces of both Syria and Iraq and then breaking them up. The U.S. intervention in Syria and foreign support for the “rebels” are all steps toward realizing this Israeli plan for Syria.

“U.S. IS ABETTING INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM”
Does this mean that Donald Trump’s cruise missiles were fired to help Al Qaida terrorists, the same group he blames for 9/11, who are fighting to overthrow the government of Syria?
Yes, that is exactly what the result of the U.S. military action is. The U.S. is actually waging war against the elected government of Syria, illegally, on behalf of terrorists, which the U.S. designated as terrorists in March 2017! This is a “big mistake” for President Trump (and the U.S.) and proves the veracity of the expression, “The War on Terror is really a War of Terror.”
The Russian Foreign Ministry released a statement today that says exactly the same thing:
The United States conducted strikes against Syrian government troops in the early hours of April 7, using chemical weapons attacks in Idlib Province as a pretext. The U.S. opted for a show of force, for military action against a country fighting international terrorism without taking the trouble to get the facts straight…
Seeking to justify military action Washington has totally distorted what had happened in Idlib. The U.S. could not have failed to grasp the fact that the Syrian government troops did not use chemical weapons there. Damascus simply does not have them, as confirmed a number of times by qualified experts…
As for Idlib, the terrorists operating there used to produce toxic land mines intended for use in Syria and Iraq. These manufacturing facilities were put out of operation in a military operation carried out by the Syrian air force.
The U.S. pretends that it does not understand obvious things, turning a blind eye to the use of chemical weapons in Iraq, officially confirmed by Baghdad. The U.S. refuses to believe the evidence provided by certified documents confirming the use of chemical weapons by terrorists in Aleppo. In doing so, the U.S. is abetting international terrorism and making it stronger. New WMD attacks can be expected.
Russia suspends the Memorandum of Understanding on Prevention of Flight Safety Incidents in the course of operations in Syria signed with the U.S.
We call on the UN Security Council to hold an emergency meeting to discuss the latest developments.
