[ASI] Mercenaries for the U.N.

Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

Something really stinks about Trump’s intervention in the civil war in Syria. He has turned our soldiers into mercenaries for the United Nations.

I wrote about this trend in U.S. policy in the book I co-authored with Daniel New about his son, Michael New: Mercenary or American Soldier.

Donald Trump said he wasn’t elected to be president of the world. Yet he went to war, saying, “There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the U.N. Security Council.”

There was no justification under U.S. law or the Constitution for intervening in the Syrian civil war. This is a mess.

Obama intervened with CIA arms shipments to the “rebels.” That’s partly what got 500,000 people killed. Plus, the Russians and Iranians intervened on the other side.

In effect, Trump is continuing one phase of Obama’s pro-Muslim policy. In this case, Trump is intervening on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood “rebels” in Syria. 

I don’t know who or what is behind the “chemical attack.” All I know is that the same “intelligence community” trying to get rid of Trump must have given him some “information” about that “chemical attack” that forced him to act. What did they tell him? Where are the facts? Did they threaten him?

This happened way too fast for a serious and calm understanding of what’s really going on.

Look at this headline from only two days ago:

Speaking to the  2017 North America's Building Trades Unions National Legislative Conference, he said:

We enriched foreign countries at the expense of our own country, the great United States of America.  But those days are over.  (Applause.)  I'm not -- and I don't want to be -- the President of the world.  I'm the President of the United States. And from now on, it’s going to be America First.  (Applause.) 

So why did he cite the U.N. Security Council as justification for going to war?

Something has gone seriously wrong in the Trump Administration.

How is it “America First” to go to war with the support of the U.N. but not the U.S. Congress?
