In fact, confusing the reactions to your bring an a** hole for racism becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy in itself. Further exacerbating how poorly you react to the world. Making you an even bigger a** hole, thus garnering even more negative reactions, feeding the racist confirmation bias. It can become a vicious cycle very quickly.
So Syria is a new approach. All the combatants who pose a threat to the region have been defeated by men and women fighting in secret.
The Saudis trained over 350,000 strategic special forces from all over the Muslim world.
After World War II, there were no neighboring countries that sent in terrorists to destabilize Japan and Germany.
In Iraq, we had Syria and Iran working around the clock to defeat us.
It's simply not possible for the US to occupy a Middle Eastern country.
The French learned this in the Algerian War of Independence (1954-1962).
Venezuela shuts down air and sea connections to the Netherlands Antilles indefinitely.
I'm scheduled to be in Bonaire in July.
In Algeria, the French took and executed hostages, used punitive bombardment of villages, tortured people to death, carried out mass summary executions, and put a third of the population in concentration camps.
And the French lost.
Over 18,000 French soldiers were killed, and maybe 1 million Algerians.
So the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) took a different approach in Syria.

#DeepState weasels are all doing the backpedal dance on Twitter past few days. They’ll be dropping this #RussiaScam like a hot potato. Sadly for them the #JussieSmollettHoax is already dying out. So #ClimateChange is on deck, I guess. Yawn. https://t.co/3gwXg4ZfWU
The Unbearable Lameness of Antifa
And How They were Defeated.

Let's reach 10,000 by the end of February.
Headline: "Russia Threatens To Leak Things Obama Asked Moscow To “Keep Secret”
The "secret thing about Obama" the Russians threaten to release is the REAL collusion, the collusion between Obama, the Clintons and the FSB (Putin's intelligence agency) to stop Donald Trump from becoming the US President.
Dezinformatsiya - making people in Western countries believe Russian lies, influencing elections, turning people against the US, creating internal strife in the West, supporting politicians sold out to the cause of socialism, undermining the church - this was Pacepa's job description as Director of Romania's DIE.
Their objective is to make the electorate believe their lies to such a degree, that a statement like "candidate X is a racist sold out to our enemies'" becomes conventional wisdom and it is not even brought into serious questioning.
How do they do it? By using dezinformatsiya, a method that takes blatant lies about the candidate that nobody in the West would believe if they could be traced directly to Kremlin, and launder them through domestic sources in the West that people tend to believe.
@Rawls asks how many troops would it take to stabilize Syria.
To answer the question, I have to go back in history.
After World War II, we occupied Germany and Japan.
Our troops are still there.
We occupied Iraq for years, but simply overthrowing Saddam destabilized the country and the region.
No amount of troops could do the job.
