Trump Is Being Sabotaged by the Pentagon

Paul Craig Roberts

President Trump says he wants the US to have better relations with Russia and to halt military operations against Muslim countries. But he is being undermined by the Pentagon.

The commander of US forces in Europe, General Ben Hodges, has lined up tanks on Poland’s border with Russia and fired salvos that the general says are a message to Russia, not a training exercise.

How is Trump going to normalize relations with Russia when the commander of US forces in Europe is threatening Russia with words and deeds?

The Pentagon has also sent armored vehicles to “moderate rebels” in Syria, according to Penagon spokesman Col. John Dorrian. Unable to prevent Russia and Syria from winning the war against ISIS, the Pentagon is busy at work derailing the peace negotiations.

The military/security complex is using its puppets-on-a-string in the House and Senate to generate renewed conflict with Iran and to continue threats against China.

Clearly, Trump is not in control of the most important part of his agenda—peace with the thermo-nuclear powers and cessation of interference in the affairs of other countries.

Trump cannot simultaneously make peace with Russia and make war on Iran and China. The Russian government is not stupid. It will not sell out China and Iran for a deal with the West. Iran is a buffer against jihadism spilling into Muslim populations in the Russian Federation. China is Russia’s most important military and economic strategic ally against a renewal of US hostility toward Russia by Trump’s successor, assuming Trump succeeds in reducing US/Russian tensions. The neoconservatives with their agenda of US world hegemony and their alliance with the military-security complex will outlast the Trump administration.

Moreover, China is rising, while the corrupt and dehumanized West is failing. A deal with the West is worth nothing. Countries that make deals with the West are exposed to financial and political exploitation. They become vassals. There are no exceptions.

Russia’s desire to be part of the West is perplexing. Russia should build its security on relations with China and Asia, and let the West, desirous of participating in this success, come to Russia to ask for a deal.

Why be a supplicant when you can be the decider?

  1. Turkey balks. If Trump defeats Daesh (ISIS) it will leave a powerful Kurdistan and Syria will survive.

    US alliance’s of convenience with scant regard for History or consequences has left it with bed fellows that contradict the known objectives of each other as well as proclaimed US objectives for which Americans are taxed and bled.

    Syria is just one front.

    WW Three has been building in intensity since US achieved unipolarity as a Sunni Petro Dollar vassal:

    The US-NATO-Sunni Axis forged by Nixon, Yamani and Kissinger with Petro Dollars has run global wars, terror, public opinion, contraband arms, drugs and minerals, and vice ever since.

    The intensity began to build once US achieved unipolarity with Clinton (Lewinsky) pushing NATO Eastwards and bombing Belgrade for 84 days to throw Bosnia and Kosovo into the maws of Islam. There was also the Regime Change engineered in Georgia.

    Bush (the Son) followed through by burning Three Trillion borrowed Dollars and wasting thousands of US soldiers in distracting anger over 9/11 from the perpetrators (The Tent of Saud, Pakistan and Qatar) to Iraq.

    Obama (the Holy Ghost) played Syria, Libya and the Arab Spring, creating chaos where the Quran and the Hadiths might establish Sharia and submerging Europe under a sea of Moslems.

    While this game; where the US aced as a Polyphemes with Sunni Islam athwart its shoulders like Sindbad’s “Old Man of the Sea”, Russia consolidated and rearmed. China grew stronger using US patronage that was brokered by Pakistan in the Nixon years.

    With Obama’s false flag MH-17 to unite NATO in sanctions against Russia after engineering a regime change in Ukraine, Russia has been pushed closer to China which, with territorial ambitions, is in a close alliance with Pakistan that leads the Saudi built Sunni Military alliance. Pakistan’s nuclear armament came, initially with US blessings via apartheid South Afirca and has now been honed with technology from China and delivery systems from Chinese client state North Korea. Pakistan’s acknowledged goal is “Ghazwa e Hind” which is do to what remains of India after what it has already swallowed by way of partition in 1947 what Daesh (ISIL to Obama, ISIS to you, and Islam to the Moslem) are doing to the Yazidis with US blessings.

    Whether and how Trump extricates the US from this Islamo-Chinese puzzle to cool things down, or stick a finger in the glotis to bring things out is moot.
