Bits and Pieces – 20180415, Sunday

Commentary

Trump got to fire his missiles and save face: Trump Orders Military Strikes On Syria: 3 Waves Of Airstrikes Launched. The generals got to brag: “We Successfully Hit Every Target”: Highlights From Pentagon Press Briefing On Syria Airstrikes, minor possible technicalities aside: Syria Claims It Intercepted 71 Out Of 103 Cruise Missiles; Pentagon Denies.

Apparently the three targets were largely abandoned anyway so no Russians or Iranians were killed although the Israelis decided to take out a few Iranians on their own: 20 Dead After Israeli Warplanes Reportedly Attack Iranian Military Base In Syria. Inquiring minds might wonder if bombing a chemical weapon storage facility is wise unless no weapons are present.

As for the Donald, he’s a showman and a true politician judging by the number of times he reverses himself: “These ‘Freedom Fighters’ Fly Planes Into Our Buildings” – A List Of All The Times Trump Warned Against Attacking Syria.

Commentary

Our focus remains on Syria. While Trump has taken a step back, assets are still being assembled: A Second US Tomahawk-Capable Destroyer Enters The Mediterranean. As the article notes the US won’t have the USS Harry Truman carrier strike group in place until April 22, and the military would not want to launch an attack with such high risk without all their pieces on the board. We expect the rhetoric to continue.

The wild card is Trump. How can he back down? The longer he waits, the greater the risk that an independent investigation may be able to be conducted that might exonerate Assad.

Commentary

In a recent unreleased Bits and Pieces, I started to formulate a reorganization of the format to help focus my thinking in several areas. This post has the preliminary format.

Some years ago I formulated the position that the two great threats to civilization – our society, culture, politics and geopolitics – where socialism and Islamism. I would now add a third – globalization or globalism. Interestingly, Bits and Pieces has never had categories for these movements. While this fact invites more thought on my part as to why, the topics that have emerged are the ones that I see as having more direct impact on daily life. Right now, war is the dominant one, in all its manifestations. To this end, this inaugural post retains all the category and sub-category headings. Future posts will not show empty topics.

Trade Wars: Martin Armstrong has some interesting perspectives on the US moves, in this very short blog post: Protectionism & Trade Wars.

Commentary: This edition of Bits and Pieces is rather long in the tooth and perhspd less coherent than usual.

Commentary: If Trump continues, trade wars will be the start of the end ushering in the collapse of most markets and pricking the debt bubble. This is serious stuff. Be sure to see the 19 second video of our Rime Minister in the next section.

Commentary: There’s enough material on Trump’s trade war to warrant a small release of Bits and Pieces.

Commentary: As today’s focus I want to offer two videos that outline the contamination of our food chain by agricultural practices and synthetic chemicals such as Monsanto’s glyphosate, trade name RounrUp, that are poisoning us and creating an epidemic of physical disease and disorders.

The first below, describes how modern agriculture has lead to food of decreasing nutritional value contaminated with compounds and genetic structures that are creating a major health epidemic while at the same time destroying soil quality:

The second, below discusses among other things the adverse effects of sugar and glyphosate and the physiological and neurological disorders they lead to such as autism and Alzheimer’s as well as obesity, diabetes, liver damage, cancer and cardiac problems:

Commentary: The kitten that recently adopted us, has grown to the point that it can reach the doorknob when it wants out so we have to act as its valet. I’m thinking, however, I’ll get us one of these robodogs:
