Weighing in on the Recent Geopolitical Events

I haven’t commented on political world events recently. The bombing in Syria the other day and listening to numerous news outlets since then has helped me form a definite opinion. I am disappointed in what our nation is doing in Syria.

I did not have a solidified opinion of Syrian President Assad until after I watched a video by body language expert, Bombard’s Body Language. I’ve been watching her videos for some time evaluating the body language of a lot of people in the spotlight. These videos, in conjunction with the body language training I’ve had when I was a Certified Fraud Examiner, has increased my understanding of body language in general. The interview of President Assad of Syria that was critiqued was with a Chinese journalist interviewing Assad. Assad’s comfort level during the interview was relaxed, he did not display any body language indicative of deception during the interview and his body agreed with the answers he was giving. In that interview, which I understand took place about a month or so ago, he was asked how long it would take to resolve the civil war within Syria. His answer was to the effect that if there were no outside interference it would probably take about two months or so. He was confident in that answer. When he qualified it with the statement of ‘given no outside interference took place’ his body language appeared to indicate he felt that outside interference was a distinct possibility. Another question about what his priorities were once the civil war is settled shows that the man’s priorities for rebuilding are pro people. His first priority is to rebuild the suburb areas that have sustained so much damage, then the infrastructure for sanitation, power and such, and third is industrial restoration. As I see it he wants to first house the people, second insure utilities and sanitation, then jobs. How does that sound like someone who would attack his own people with some kind of chemical warfare? In at least one and maybe more news reports from non-American sources I heard that Syria claims that they were bombing what they considered a munitions cache of the rebels and did not have any idea that there were any chemical weapons stored there. The bombing resulted in hitting that chemical cache. Rebels having those chemical weapons seems more likely to me than Assad using them against his people on purpose.

In a recent White House press conference, Sean Spicer said that the first priority is to destabilize Syria, he corrected himself and added to destabilize the civil war in Syria. His demeanor, to me, said that the first statement was the real one. We know that the US wants to overthrow Assad. I believe US intelligence is actively spreading propaganda to give us a reason to overthrow the Syrian president. We know that we’ve been supporting the rebels and I think someone in our intelligence community knew that there were chemical weapons stock piled by the rebels. I also believe that when Assad had their munitions cache bombed he was unaware that the chemicals existed, he thought all chemical weapons had been eliminated from his country.

I believe that here in the US our president, and we the public as a result, are being given false information on what is really happening in Syria. Syria, Russia, and a few countries we have been active in facilitating regime change, are nations that have resisted the world banking system and the agenda of the New World Order. Trump had a nationalist platform when he campaigned. I would think that he would be in favor of other nationalist leaning countries. So, why is it he’s falling into the trap of helping the NWO agenda through regime change? False intelligence seems to be the only answer in my opinion. He’s being told that Syria is a threat because of ISIS. ISIS is a threat to everyone, but Assad was working toward quelling the threat in Syria. As I understand he was ahead and winning until we stuck our noses in. Who is behind the false intel? Maybe it comes from somewhere within the CIA; who knows? I certainly don’t. But I do wish that our president would not believe everything he’s told by intelligence sources. He needs more reliable people in that capacity than what he’s inherited.

I listen to news and commentary on Israeli News Live (INL) and his take on what is going on over there in the Middle East. Steven Ben Denoon of INL is an American living in Prague, Czech Republic. He has contacts with many news sources within Europe and the Middle East as well as occasionally going on scene himself. I tend to trust his opinion commentary on the events, though I don’t always agree with his opinions. What I get from his broadcasts is not the same as what we get here in the United States.  The view from across the ocean is much different than here.

Then there is North Korea… The Chinese government may or may not have moved troops and weapons to the NK border to help the US take Kim Jong-un down. China backed NK in the Korean conflict. I don’t know their current relationship, but, the NK leader is out of control and I’m pretty sure that Xi Jinping of China realizes the threat NK poses. We engage in a lot of trade with China and if we don’t get the cooperation from them it could pose a risk to trade relations that they don’t want. It would appear that in the very near future the US will be attacking NK. We’ll see how that plays out.

Tensions in the Middle East and North Korea seem to be heading this planet into what could possibly be another world war. Many political commentators are forecasting just such an event. Some say that we can’t afford a war, but, honestly, it was war that brought us out of the economic hardships left by the Great Depression. Why would another war be any different? It’s brutal, violent, and costly in lives; but economically, war is profitable.

The next few months and years will be chaotic as we prepare for a war that voters didn’t expect. Right or wrong, we will most likely end up in a war that will last for awhile. I would hope not, but, it just doesn’t look like my hope will be the reality. Buckle your seat belts ladies and gentlemen, it’s going to be a bumpy ride for the next 8 years.

Blessings,

Grandma Peachy

About grandmapeachy

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.
