    Nikki Haley Announces Exit-Strategy

    Incidentally, whenever globalists oppose a war that is not sanctioned by the U.N. they never stop demanding an exit-strategy. This country has been fighting in Afghanistan for almost two decades, but you never hear about an exit-strategy because Afghanistan is a U.N. war. So far, I have not heard anybody demand an exit-strategy for the ground troops already in Syria.

    The Moral Drums Of War

    Haley announcing an exit-strategy suddenly gave me a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach. It looks like the U.S. Military fighting in Syria’s civil have been fighting for the United Nations all along. It sounds to me that Haley’s goals are United Nations goals:


    WASHINGTON, April 15 (Reuters) - U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Sunday that the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished.

    Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Haley listed three aims for the United States: ensuring that chemical weapons are not used in any way that pose a risk to U.S. interests, that Islamic State is defeated and that there is a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing.

    It is our goal "to see American troops come home, but we are not going to leave until we know we have accomplished those things," Haley said.

    Trump, who on Friday joined France and Britain in ordering missile strikes against Syrian targets, has sent mixed signals on Syria.

    He has made clear he wants to withdraw the roughly 2,000 U.S. troops in Syria involved in the anti-Islamic State campaign. But he appeared to contradict that message when he said on Saturday that Western allies were prepared to "sustain" the military response if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad does not stop using prohibited chemical weapons.

    Asked about U.S.-Russia relations, Haley said ties were "very strained" but that the United States still hoped for a better relationship.

    I would like to know if any American troops in Syria are wearing U.N. images? It is not an idle question when you remember that Michael New was court-martialed and dishonorably discharged for refusing to serve the U.N. President Trump might consider this when he is handing out pardons:

    I would also like to know why our ambassador is reporting exit-strategy to the United Nations? One would hope that she reports to the Congress!

    The basic test of freedom is perhaps less in what we are free to do than in what we are free not to do. It is the freedom to refrain, withdraw and abstain which makes a totalitarian regime impossible. Eric Hoffer

    Exactly! Where are the UN troops? This is their show. Get to work. I can’t think of a single time the UN did anything combat related.

    The UN is confederacy, thankfully. There are no UN troops. The military of the nations that make up the UN serve the UN as militia. The nations are free to contribute troops or not.

    I'm not all that put out by Haley's comments, as they are very generally put.

    Trump is not contradicting himself when he says he'd like to pull out of Syria, but can't, just yet.

    However, I'll admit being a bit confused by the part of Haley's comment that includes, "...until the Islamic State is defeated."
    I've only had two beers in dog years.


    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
    It is difficult only for the others.
    It is the same when you are stupid.

    Globalists that oppose a war? I believe that is an oxymoron.

    To Quark: It is a bit of a stretch to call it a militia:

    militia (noun)
    Abbr. mil.

    1. An army composed of ordinary citizens rather than professional soldiers.

    2. A military force that is not part of a regular army and is subject to call for service in an emergency.

    3. The whole body of physically fit civilians eligible by law for military service.

    To Quark: Note that member states are compelled to support peacekeeping operations:


    According to UN Charter every Member State is legally obligated to pay their respective share for peacekeeping.

    In any event the U.N.ís goal from day one has been for our professional military personnel fighting for the United Nationsí global government agenda.

    Lets assume that's true that's a drop in the bucket. Without the military forces of the world the UN is powerless. I'm willing to bet those personnel are from the members of the UN. Principally from the US.

    That's true but it was the closes I could come up at the moment.



    To Quark: Note that member states are compelled to support peacekeeping operations:


    According to UN Charter every Member State is legally obligated to pay their respective share for peacekeeping.

    Just like the thirteen states were required to legally support the confederacy but more often than not did not do so if it wasn't in the state's best interest to do so. If the US refuses to send troops what's the UN going to do attack us? Take us to court? Almost everything I've learned about confederacies I've learned form the UN. Learned a lot about confederacies from the ancient Celtic tribes too.

    To Quark: Of course they will not attack. The U.N. is an organization. Whenever I talk about the United Nations I usually mean U.N. officials and U.N. bureaucrats. Put every issue in perspective by separating U.N. member states from the U.N.ís hierarchy and their bureaucrats.

    Even those 50 countries with a Muslim majority will not declare war on orders from the Secretary General, but this is what the U.N. can do with peacekeepers:

    Make no mistake about which side U.N. peacekeepers will fight for. When Democrats are backed into a corner they will trigger a violent revolution in order to protect the gains they made in the past 100 years. Violent revolution is the only choice Democrats will have when they see their levers of power slipping away.

    p.s. An organization cannot declare war on any country, but any American President can declare a bloodless war on the U.N. simply by booting their sorry asses out of this country. (Maybe a big bunch of Democrats will leave with them!)
