Marine veteran Angelo John Gage, who served two tours in Iraq, has warned US President Donald Trump that he is being “duped” about Syria, as well as that the most part of Trump’s supporters will not endorse change of the regime in the Arab country. Gage posted a video message, addressed to the US President, on his Twitter.
The veteran claimed that the US President was cozying up to the same media and the deep state that has tried to destroy him at every turn, as well as noted that he voted for Trump “to make America great again, not make the Middle East great again.”
“We have no interest in Syria….we have to focus on our own country and you’re being distracted and duped – it’s so obvious – it’s blatantly obvious how ridiculous this narrative is and how fake it is,” Gage said.
“They lied about your taxes, they lied about Russian collusion, they lied about DNC rigging, they lied about everything and you’re falling for this – now they’re telling the truth about Syria, magically just for you,” he added.
“A lot of us voted for you because you’re supposed to be the ‘no war’ candidate – Hillary would have gotten us to war, you know that – yet here you are four months into your administration and you want to consider military action?” the veteran asked.
Gage asked the US President why he trusts the same intelligence sources that have repeatedly misinformed about weapons of mass destruction in the past.
“You work for us, Mr. President – we voted for you because you were supposed to take care of us – none of us want to go to Syria….even if it was true it has nothing to do with us,” the former marine added, believing that Syrian militants were behind the chemical attack on the Syrian province of Idlib.
“You should know better, you’re supposed to be the strategic mastermind, but you’re falling for the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen – be smart, do the right thing and put America first,” Gage concluded.
Gage’s statements express the point of view, which was had by country’s military and veterans before Barack Obama’s threat to invade Syria in 2013. At that time, servicemen published photos on social media, vowing that they would not act as “Al-Qaeda’s air force” to help terrorists to capture the country.
