America First In War, Last In Peace

By Stephen Lendman

All US presidential aspirants make promises they intend breaking if elected – Trump no different than his predecessors.

 Straightaway in office, he sold out to Wall Street, war-profiteers and other corporate favorites. Instead of draining the swamp, he filled it with neocon generals and billionaires.

 Hyperbole calling NATO “obsolete” is long forgotten. So is his phony worker friendly trade agenda – protecting investors over consumers, reneging on halting jobs offshored to low-wage countries.

 Instead of changing destructive US policies, he’s pursuing them with vigor – notably by escalating wars in multiple theaters, including by attacking Syria’s Shayrat airbase, likely prelude for further aggression, maybe full-scale war risking confrontation with Russia.

 Is North Korea on his target list? Will he risk East Asia nuclear war? His South China Sea saber-rattling risks confrontation with China. Threats against Iran and Venezuela risk more trouble.

 Does his “America first” hyperbole mean greater war on humanity than already? Does he intend making his administration first in warmaking above everything else?

 How many more countries are on his target list? The New York Times criticized his missing voice on Syria since attacking its Shayrat airbase.

 His actions speak louder than words, escalating Obama’s wars, featuring Mosul and northern Syria terror-bombing, massacring civilians, others in Afghanistan and Yemen – horrendous war crimes, ignored by media scoundrels.

 What country does he plan to attack next? How many more combat troops are planned for US war theaters?

 He earlier said “(w)e really have no choice. We have to knock out ISIS. I would listen to the generals, but I’m hearing numbers of 20,000 to 30,000” in Syria.

 McMaster reportedly wants 150,000, a full-scale invasion if ordered either way – for regime change, not combating ISIS Washington created and supports.

 A White House statement said “(t)he president retains the option to act in Syria against the Assad regime whenever it is in the national interest…”

In other words, naked US aggression is OK if Trump orders it for any reason – claiming it’s in ‘the national interest.”

He redefined “America first” – warmaking topping his agenda ahead of other priorities. – See more at:
