The Syrian Quagmire: Why Military Action in Syria Is The Right Thing To Do
SYRIA is the phrase that will be this generations automatic link to a Middle Eastern War.
For me and my generation – born in the early 1990s, it was Iraq and 9/11, for generations before it was the first Gulf War and George H.W. Bush’s Operation Desert Storm coalition to bring freedom to Kuwait, and in every lead up to combat, the majority of Brits opposed those wars, but Syria is different.
Let’s be honest, no one likes War – well, apart from the Arms companies that profit from war, and the newspapers that sell more copies due to world chaos, but sometimes War is a necessary response and the only course of action.
“It’s nothing to do with us” I hear you say, “We haven’t learnt from Iraq” you shout… the Establishment said, “Saddam had WMD, and he didn’t.” I hear you, and these are all legitimate arguments, but let me ask you, imagine it’s 1939, and Neville Chamberlain is ramping up to War with Germany and the Axis of Evil.
Imagine shouting “We need proof” of Germany’s war crimes, “We didn’t learn from the Great War” and “It’s nothing to do with us.”
Could you imagine the sort of world we would be living in right now?
Germany’s mass-atrocities were only discovered after the War ended, imagine what more horrors Nazi Germany would have been responsible for if Britain and her allies hadn’t done the right thing and declared War on Germany.
We gave Hitler red lines, he ignored them. So the British and the French declared war on Germany. Today, The west has given Assad red lines and he keeps crossing them.
Way back in 2012, President Obama failed to take action in Syria, he said he had red lines, and when Assad crossed them, he did nothing. Obama’s inaction has led to the situation we see before us today, a war-torn nation, terror attacks across Europe and a Migrant crisis.
I often speak to my local Syrian shopkeeper who’s a Syrian refugee, he wants Assad out, he describes him as an “animal” and after he and his family were forced to leave his homeland because the West failed to act.
Twelve months ago, my first ever story for Politicalite.com was about Trump’s air strikes in Syria following a similar Chemical attack.
Back in April 2017, President Trump took his first major foreign policy decision against Assad and set the tone of his future responses to world affairs.
In later months he dropped the MOAB (Mother of all bombs) on Afghanistan, and he threatened Nuclear War with Kim Jong Un.
Trump got results, and he showed the world he was the ‘Mad Dog’ President that wasn’t to be messed with.
Many of you reading this, Working-class Populists, Brexit Voters, Anti-Globalists like me will probably love Trump – I freaking love the Donald and I trust his judgement.
I trusted his judgement when the Elites of the world said he would never be President, I trusted him so much I put £200 on The Donald to win, and he did, big league.
I don’t support action in Syria due to the Tories or Theresa May, but I trust Mr Trump. So if Mr Trump is backing military action, does that not show us that this isn’t some globalist conspiracy or an Iraq mark two?
The crisis in Syria is nothing like Iraq, we can’t even compare the two.
Back in 2003, Iraq was in a state of peace, Iraq was a stable country, George W. Bush and Tony Blair wrongly went to war in Iraq and destabilised the region leading to ISIS and terror attacks on Western Soil.
Then we had the fog of the “War on Terror” but Syria, on the other hand, isn’t a stable country, it has been ravaged by War for years and we can look at the situation without the “War on Terror” Fox News fog.
Saddam did not have WMDs or Chemical Weapons in 2003, but you know who does? Assad and he is actively using those weapons on his own people.
“Fake News” you cry, but who is pushing the narrative that Assad is innocent? The Russians.
Last month, Russia used chemical weapons on British soil, they attacked our country, today it was proven that the nerve agent used was pure Russian Novichok.
So are we really to believe the Russians over President Trump? Are we to refuse to believe The first President of the United States that is owned by ZERO special interests, because he’s so fucking rich he can’t be bought?
This isn’t 2003, this isn’t George W. Bush trying to finish his daddy’s war from the early 90s. This is 2018, this is Syria.
We should have taken action in 2013, but the pacifists won the debate.
Now is not the time to sit back and be a cuck, it is the time for action, once and for all, we need to be the good guys and finish off Assad for good.
