Samantha Power lied while hundreds of thousands died
American Thinker ^ | March 1, 2018 | Ethel C. Fenig

Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. during President Barack Obama (D)'s second term, claimed that her guiding philosophy was Responsibility to Protect (R2P). However, in this absolutely heartbreaking letter in Tablet Magazine, "AMBASSADOR SAMANTHA POWER LIED TO MY FACE ABOUT SYRIA," by Kassem Eid, a Syrian who survived unspeakable torture and poison gas bombing attacks from Syrian president Assad's forces but managed to escape and then tried to warn her about the true situation, we learn that Power's real motto was Responsibility to Protect Our Rear Ends (R2PORE) by not getting involved.

This is a must read article.

It talks about the Obama administration in the middle east and how they facilitated the torture and death of thousands.

One of the few things that Obama did right regarding Syria was to NOT start WW3 to try to get rid of Assad.

Of course there was NO NEED for the war in the first place, but Hillary, I guess, looked at the Middle East as her personal playground.

It’s what commies do. What’s a few thousand lives or even a few million...? You gotta break a few eggs...

“One of the few things that Obama did right regarding Syria was to NOT start WW3 to try to get rid of Assad.”

Obama may not have started WWIII but his administration created, financed and armed ISIS and created a power vacuum in Iraq, Syria, Libya and the rest of the region that allowed terrorists to thrive.

Trump’s advisors need to ask now, in retrospect, was there some middle ground between helping to arm the “Syrian opposition” - as it WAS dominated by Islamists - and letting Russia and Iran so boldly arm Assad; and what would that middle ground have been.

Could we have, somehow succeeded in not letting Russia and Iran move into and arm Syria so much (different “red lines”), and also NOT have emboldened the “Syria opposition”, and then over time, with both sides less able to pursue war, brought some sort of political and military stalemate sooner?

It’s only a question and I have no answers, except this.

Assad is HORRIBLE. So are Putin and the Mullahs of Tehran.

What if we had supported Assad? Could he have been our “bastard” that over time we could dump?

Responsibility To Protect was a scam put out by Soros and associates to justify attacking Libya to murder Qadaffi and steal his wealth.

It was a smokescreen for murder and robbery put forward by the Soros puppets Obama and Hillary.

It was only important for that criminal action.

The fight at Benghazi was to recover the money that Soros and Obama and Hillary stole from Libya.

Where do you think that $6,000,000,000 that Hillary “lost” from the State Dept went?

That’s right.....Libya and our enemies.

#1 Trump’s advisors need to ask now, in retrospect, was there some middle ground between helping to arm the “Syrian opposition” - as it WAS dominated by Islamists - and letting Russia and Iran so boldly arm Assad; and what would that middle ground have been. - from January 2017 there was nothing Trump could have done, the "opposition" since then (and earlier) are jihadis who want a sharia state. They should not be armed or helped in any way, not even by omission. Letting Russia and Iran arm Assad would be ok if it protects Christians and if Trump could deal with Assad to give him free hand in the north and east as long as the Kurds keep Rojava and Assad signs a non-aggression pact with Isr (doable as he can concentrate on main Syria

#2 Could we have, somehow succeeded in not letting Russia and Iran move into and arm Syria so much (different “red lines”), and also NOT have emboldened the “Syria opposition”, and then over time, with both sides less able to pursue war, brought some sort of political and military stalemate sooner? - not from January 2017. The time to have done this would have been in 2011 or 2012, but the US, UK and France were suckered by the Saudis to try and replace Assad with jihadis. The Syrians don't trust us, with reason. The right thing to have done in 2012 was keep Turkey, Saudia on a leash and tell Assad that he could deal with the jihadis and keep western Syria as long as he signs a non-aggression pact with the Israelis (also to his benefit as he then doesn't need to commit troops in the south)

#3 Assad is HORRIBLE. So are Putin and the Mullahs of Tehran. - they are nowhere as horrible as the Saudis or pakis. Erdogan is as horrible.

#4 What if we had supported Assad? Could he have been our “bastard” that over time we could dump? then the USA would create more problems. The right attitude was to stay out and not overtly support anyone. Sponsoring jihadi groups as McCain wanted to do was insane

smart answers I have no disagreement with

Regardless, I do not think “sitting it out” is a long term strategy either.

We can’t go on using the Kurds for some interest of our own in Syria. If we are not going to keep Erdogan out of Syria, then we need to betray the Kurds again, as we have before - for our own interest. That would not be my strategy, but we seem to be leaving ourselves no other option.
