just tin men ...

just tin men ...

I really don’t understand how you people see things. The US was a large part of the reason why Libya was destroyed and a large part of the reason why Syria is such a mess. The wars (regime change efforts) against both countries created the waves of refugees into Europe and the deaths tens or hundreds of thousands, and along the way emboldened terrorism in the region and across the world.

Yet you criticise Russia for trying to end the terrorism and instability.

And Trump, to his credit says he wants an end to this too. He wants stability and friendly relations with Russia.

What’s not to like about that?

Obama and Clinton both supported arming terrorist groups. There is no doubt about this. France, Germany and the UK were/are willing partners with Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar in this. I’d argue it is a joint criminal enterprise. These are the facts of recent history.

We know this even if you people are afraid to say so. It’s why we don’t trust you lot (ABC AM/PM, Adams etc) anymore.

It’s why journalists are seen as liars and why you have so little credibility.

Trump, for all his faults is not a racist. He has received awards (note plural) for his inclusiveness from people like Jessie Jackson. At one of his recent rallies he held a rainbow flag and said how he would protect LGBTI and Q people.

He is against Muslim fundamentalism and I see his rise as an end to the USofA alliance with Muslim Brotherhood types. This is a good thing.

Yet you belt away establishment imperial lefties and others don’t seem to see the wood for the trees.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not a supporter of four on the floor US style capitalism, but I can appreciate that some good might come of a the Trump presidency.

When are you people going to understand that more of the same – as in Obama’s foreign policy – is a recipe for further disaster?

We know that when you and (and the SBS) ran White Helmets and AMC videos and reports that they were bought and paid for propaganda productions – groups that are aligned with terrorists in Syria – and paid for with Western money – this is war propaganda and I can’t believe that your people don’t know this. As far as I understand this is illegal to do – yet you do it. Why? Is this subservience to Empire? Are you directed by Government or do you not have the intelligence to know better?
