I think the fact that Trump and Putin are publicly engaged in this very angsty sabre-rattling over virtually nothing in Syria while Xi is in Florida is potentially significant. Trump and Putin play out the little Syrian charade, Trump explains it to Xi, and then the US Navy has the greenlight to go after the lunatics before Tokyo, Moscow, or Beijing get nuked.
Bombing Syria was a feint to cover an upcoming US-China attack on North Korea. As the bombs fall in Syria, Trump explains it to Xi, and then the US Navy has the greenlight to go after the lunatics before Tokyo, Moscow, or Beijing get nuked. Hilarious. A feint. Kim: “Drats! I was faked out again!”
Meanwhile, to save face, Russia and Iran warn U.S. they will “respond with force” if Syria “red lines” crossed again, while U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley continues the “feint” by proclaiming, regime change in Syria is now a top priority for Trump! Putin wink-winks along with the “feint” as Sec. State Tellerson proclaims Russia failed to ‘live up to its commitments under the chemical weapons agreements’.
While U.S. NATO Admiral Michelle Howard “feints” to trick N. Korea by keeping Kim’s eye-ball on Russia, Putin “feints” and wink-winks by ramping up activity in the Mediterranean and other European seas to fake out Kim.
Co-starring Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping!
