4/13/21: APRIL FIRESTARTER – Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis

I have wanted to say for the record that what is happening in the world now is something that I never thought I would see happening so early on in this new administration.

I would say that many of us were actually thinking that the idea if rebuilding American values and infrastructure would be a way to heal.

Build Back Better is just a slogan – at least until we have to rebuild after all out war and possibly a greater conflict that historians my call World War III.

The United Nations and NATO are standing by waiting to continue the idealization process. But nobody smells the rat, nobody wants to see it, nobody wants to hear it, and especially, nobody wants to talk about it.

If you want to tell the truth, you are told to hold your tongue. There are a lot of people that are excited that our new president is about to go in with guns blazing. 

His mind, so trapped in last century’s geopolitics that he believes what Obama did with the Ukraine is the perfect place to ignite an April Firestarter.

I am not confident in thinking that anyone can remember what happened when the war hawks approached Trump and attempted to put us into an all-out war with Syria. In my article, Captain War Whore, I warned my audience that the John Bolton style of warhawking would throw us into a war with Syria which actually could inch us ever closer to World War III.

I have always been told that history should be a great teacher and that we are supposed to learn from history lest we find ourselves repeating it over and over again.

There is much talk of the “lessons” that past wars have supposedly taught us, and there is a significant debate about how and when we should begin or end wars, but what’s clear is the lessons that we should be learning from Deep State provocateurs and that is being a “neocon” means never having to say you’re sorry.

I guess Americans now take war in stride – we are simply a warlike people and one day it just won’t be to our advantage. The costs, in troops, civilian deaths and the cost to America’s credibility in the world will all, in the end, add up to a devastating loss.

So far, you can choose to see the losses we faced in the war with Iraq and Afghanistan or you can continue to think that these wars were for the greater good of our country.

On September 4th, 2018 President Trump publicly threatened Syria, Iran and Russia that if they exterminated the jihadists in Syria’s only remaining jihadist-controlled province, Idlib, then the U.S. might launch a full-scale invasion against Syria, Iran and Russia in Syria. Either the U.S. or Russia would then quickly escalate to nuclear war so as not to lose in Syria — that would be the conventional-war start to World War III.The Making and Unmaking of Syria Strategy under Trump

The leaders of Russia, Iran, Turkey, and Syria (Putin, Rouhani, Erdogan, and Assad, agreed in two meetings, one on September 7th and the other on September 17th, to transfer control of Syria’s only remaining jihadist-controlled province, Idlib, to NATO-member Turkey. This action effectively prevents the U.S. alliance from going to war against Russia if Russia’s alliance which includes Syria obliterates all the jihadist groups in the Al-Qaeda-led Syrian province, Idlib. For the U.S. to war against Russia there would also be war against fellow-NATO-member Turkey — out of the question.
