Several months ago I would never have fathomed the possibility that the U.S. would end its policy of arming terrorist elements in Syria with the aim of destabilizing Syria and undermining its legal authority, the Assad regime. Now it appears as if something I once would have scoffed at as being impossible has actually transpired to become reality.

According to media reports, the Trump Administration has announced plans to end a near 5-year policy of U.S. armament and military support to anti-Assad Rebels. One interested in peace andĀ stopping pointless slaughter at the cost of billions to U.S. taxpayers may rejoice at such announcement, but political hacks on the left are already touting such developmentsĀ as “Victory for Putin and Russia” and “further proof that Trump is Putin’s Puppet.”

I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t care less at this point if Donald Trump is a puppet of the Kremlin. What I do care about is the cessation of needless slaughter that burdens U.S. taxpayers to destabilize a country for the benefit of Israel, a nation that has long exploited the U.S. and acted against U.S. interests for the benefit of Zionism. This may potentially mark a critical moment in history in which globalism suffered a decisive blow. Perhaps time will make a mockery of my optimism, but I hope for the sake of humanity that it doesn’t.

In any case, the Trump Administration pursuing ceasefire deals while cooperating with Russia isn’t cause for outrage, but of celebration and hope. The People of Syria have suffered for far too long and it is in the interests of Syrians that this grueling conflict come to a merciful end.
