If the power elites didn’t need the consent of the public to rule, they wouldn’t have to lie constantly about their reasons for war. What if its 1984 and you don't know it because you haven't recognized who big brother is yet.

when trump said we're leaving syria i was amazed and pleased as we have no business being the world's police force, and then he began to waffle which the following writer speaks to;


Yes, it’s possible that President Trump will follow through with his announcement that he’s going to pull out all U.S. troops from Syria. Just don’t bet the farm on it. Already Trump has shifted from pulling out the troops immediately to pulling them out four months from now. No one should be surprised if, four months from now, he comes up with a reason for keeping them there even longer.
After all, don’t forget that last October Trump promised to release those JFK records that the CIA has been keeping secret for 55 years, on grounds of “national security” of course. The day before the deadline for release, Trump declared that he was going to follow through with his promise to release the long-secret records. The next day — the day of the deadline — Trump announced that he was granting the CIA’s request to extend the time for secrecy for another three years. It was a testament to the power of the CIA and the rest of the national-security establishment.
Now, I don’t mean to rain on the parade of those who are celebrating Trump’s supposed rebirth of non-interventionism. But there are two factors at work here that need to be emphasized: One, Trump is clearly not a non-interventionist and, two, the enormous power of the national-security establishment to bend U.S. presidents into complying with its will.
It’s true that during his presidential campaign, Trump criticized the interventions into which the U.S. government has embroiled our nation on a permanent basis — Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and elsewhere.
But let’s not forget what happened after Trump was elected. He kept troops in Iraq. He expanded troop levels in Afghanistan. He expanded troops in Syria. He’s also got troops killing and dying in Africa...........https://www.fff.org/2019/01/02/its-too-soon-to-celebrate-trumps-syria-withdrawal/
