Former Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio is right about one thing. That is that the funding for ISIS and “rebel groups” in Syria must be cut if there is to be a solution to the conflict there that’s been raging for more than five years.
The fact of the matter is that the United States has been covertly funding and giving arms to these opposition groups for years, keeping the war going there far longer than it was expected to last. Many say this strategy is in effect because globalist forces want to run an oil pipeline through the country, while Syrian leader Bashar Assad has his own plans for pipelines.
Besides the U.S., funding for ISIS is coming from Sunni regimes such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which would like to see the secular government of Syria overthrown in favor of a Wahhabist-friendly one.
But it’s unclear if President Trump has the power to overcome globalist forces within his own Cabinet and military. The fact that the president’s first National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn was forced out of office after 24 days shows that these forces of the “Deep State” are strongly embedded and highly resourceful.
Lawmakers such as Senator John McCain of Arizona and Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina are foot soldiers in this movement. While President Trump has in some cases “handed over the reins” of day-to-day battle strategy to his military, this is likely less of a solution and more of an acknowledgment that even he can’t control these forces.
The mercenary armies of the Syrian opposition — which at its core is ISIS — are mostly sourced from outside Syria. ISIS pays these troops in U.S. dollars. Cut the flow of dollars, and the war in Syria will die out just as surely as a palm tree that can’t reach water in a desert.
Watch as Fox News’ Charles Payne attempts to moderate between former Congressman Kucinich and former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie, who appears to be advocating for more American boots on the ground (and acknowledging that more American soldiers will die in the process of putting them there).
