Mr. Trump thinks and studies intelligence ... On the situation around Syria

49
A spokeswoman for the White House, Sarah Sanders, said during a briefing that the president had not yet decided to attack Syria. According to Sanders, intelligence is currently being studied. At the same time, following the logic of US Secretary of Defense James Mattis, the "intelligence" in the Pentagon is considered information that appears, for example, in social networks.


Mr. Trump thinks and studies intelligence ... On the situation around Syria


RIA News quotes the press secretary of the White House:
President Trump just finished meeting with members of the National Security Council on the situation in Syria. No final decisions have been made. We continue to study intelligence data and interact with our partners. The president will later speak with President Macron and Prime Minister May tonight.


Against this background, in the very social networks that Washington considers to be the source of intelligence, in the United States themselves posts appear with a significant degree of irony about how the West is trying to accuse Assad of committing allegedly himata to the Duma before the investigation.

One of these posts (translation):
"What's this? Why doesn't anyone attack me with rockets? ”Thought Asad. - “They took Aleppo, Palmyra, Abu Kemal ... But is it not time to apply the chemical weapon in the Duma, so that, finally, we were trampled into the sand by coalition rockets? .. "

    And Russia, meanwhile, is "silent" silent. Either MO is going into a fist, or they are preparing a dirty tale to the West. request So far, only Maria Zakharova writes out pills all over the world.

      This is her job. Because if the lyuley will write out the Ministry of Defense of Russia, then little will not seem to anyone. Looks like Trump knows about it.

          In the United States, too, not everyone is frostbitten and no one wants to get a nuclear war, so he is unlikely to be allowed to crawl to the button. It just seems to me that only a person with mental problems can threaten someone with a nuclear war.

            Yes, he seems to be trying to simply solve his domestic political problems. Tied hand and foot by the Senate and Congress. Hence all the threats. Then, just to blame the heads of special services. The US military leadership is well aware of what threatens attacks on Syria. It is unlikely that Trump will be allowed to unleash the war.

        I think it's too early to make Trump an idiot. I think the situation with Korea and Syria cannot be compared. Different level of amerovskih interests. The hype with Korea was needed only for the deployment of interceptor missiles in that region. This result has been achieved. And so, yes chuck Trump on Eun. In Syria, it’s different. The area is strategic and the desire to teach / test the Russians is also strategic. So with the ability of the Amerzians to play for a long time, Trump may well delay, choosing the most inconvenient moment for us.

      Russia understands that when a pomegranate is held in a monkey’s hand, it’s better to keep silent so that it doesn’t jerk a check in a fit of madness and that the less they talk with a mentally ill person, the faster they will have an attack.

    they’re scanning the defense, so as to strike so that they themselves will not suffer and screw it up and show the world that America means something else. After all, they do not need special serious losses among the CAA and especially among the Russians. The world reacts without it. More than sure that the attack, if any, is not from America or England, any of the henchmen. And they, in turn, will carry out subsequent protection.

      only France remains there and nobody wanted to die for the USA. They (England, France) understand perfectly well that if they attack and the Russian military perish, then this is actually a declaration of Russian war by their countries. They then actually are not a tenant, because not across the big ocean several thousand kilometers from Russia.

    Trump has a personality disorder until they, these individuals, make a common decision among themselves, it can take from three days to three months.
    First, it would be nice to make friends with Russia .... And then, how would they us, not that. Fearfully......
    Second - We have such rockets, smooth, long, smart, and you just want to launch.
    Third - Come on, this arms race, what the hell is it to us!

    After the promise of the President of the United States loudly in social networks about the strike against Syria with good and smart missiles (wait for Russia!) Within 48 hours, it was transformed and remained:
    - we'll hit sometime (maybe ...)
    - about the beautiful highly intelligent rockets somehow fell out
    - what to do for Russia - no instructions have been received ...

    Mr Trump thinks and studies intelligence


    no one wants to be the president of the United States who dragged his country into a nuclear war. It was not for nothing that Nebenzya warned that one should not cross the point of no return.
    For in any nuclear outcome of the conflict between the US and Russia, China will inevitably become the hegemon.
    Trump foolishly climbed with his initiative to hit Syria that now all American warriors are thinking how to get out of this and not lose face.

In the morning he will take a couple of scotch tape for a joint, and a blizzard went on Twitter. The most logical explanation for the inconsistency.

    What is wrong with collecting intelligence, including from social networks? Often, where something important happens, people live, people give information to the network. The main thing is to filter, organize. No one has aversion to using data from surveillance cameras; interviewing eyewitnesses is an important stage in investigative-search measures. So what is worse than social networks? If Americans have learned to fish out something from there for the benefit of themselves, honor and praise them

    Precisely, precisely. Therefore, he "rolled back" a little. The strike on Syria will be on anyone, the question is when and where? Now they will create a stable coalition, get permission from parliaments / senates to strike. By this time, so many missile carriers and aircraft will be caught up in the region - that Russia simply will not be able to take them for escort, let alone intercept. The Avaxs will so far collect information about targets where there are no guaranteed troops of the Russian Federation, during this time the barmalei will be mobilized, regrouped on the ground, and will receive clear tasks. Then the most powerful air strike and the Basmachi infantry goes on the attack. There will be no victory, but America will achieve its goals. Assad will again lose part of the territory, you will get a reason not to leave Syria (like ISIS is playing pranks) and Trump will not lose face and "prove to his own people" that he is not an agent of the Kremlin.

    I support it 100%. He is not and not a fool. All this hype around Syria will soon subside, as will the Skripals case. We must not forget about Trump's disagreements with the same Pentagon, and indeed about his domestic political position. Trump, let's say, maneuvers between his enemies, the desires of the bloody massacre inside and common sense. I do not block it, any US president is at least an ill-wisher for us. But here we observe the eating of spiders at the highest level of one not weak state, where all methods, including geopolitical ones, are naturally involved. And our leadership understands all this very well, which is why our president is silent. All sorts of macrons, mei, trump and co. they blow the whole world, but ours hasn’t said a word yet that he cannot but catch up with a caloric fear above the said ones.
