TRUMP'S WITHDRAWAL FROM SYRIA & PUTIN'S PRAISE
Like criticism of the border wall, criticism of Trump's withdrawal of our forces from Syria is rarely based on logic. It's generally based on blind, unpatriotic hatred by Trump's enemies. Posted 12/28/2018.
On December 19, 2018 President Trump announced that we will withdraw all 2,000 U.S. grounds forces from Syria. By the next day Putin praised the decision as "correct." Like many other Americans I immediately thought back to Obama's draw down in Iraq, I first wondered if Trump was making a mistake like Obama did. This uncertainty may have lasted as long as a nanosecond. But as soon as the memory cobwebs cleared, I was certain of two things: (1) The President is correct and (2) This event wouldn't be too hard to find encoded in Torah. On Figure 1 the axis term is TO WITHDRAW FROM ASSYRIA (the Biblical name for Syria). At its minimum skip in Torah is TRUMP at the best spelling. It takes only 160 letters to show these terms together. That's the first encoded prophecy. The full matrix is 504 letters. It includes an ELS for a transliteration of PUTIN that touches TO WITHDRAW FROM ASSYRIA. The word for CORRECT is at skip +1. So this paints a picture of the second prophecy. What's correct about about the withdrawal? There is an ELS of DAESH (ISIS) that shares a letter alef with TRUMP. The same ELS touches PUTIN. Trump and Putin agree that DAESH (ISIS) has been defeated. If there are mop up operations needed we can still bomb the enemy or bring in our forces from neighboring Iraq, but the Russians can use their ground forces first. That's a good deal for us. An a posteriori phrase found is NOT HIS ENEMY. This likely describes how Trump sees Putin in the fight against ISIS.
STATISTICAL AND POLITICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MATRIX. As per my standard protocol, no statistical significance is assigned to the axis term, here the only ELS found for TO WITHRAW FROM ASSYRIA in (unwrapped) Torah. The most significant a priori term seen is the preferred spelling for TRUMP which was in 160 letters with the axis term (10 rows by 16 columns) against odds of about 1,905 to 1. Odds against TRUMP being on the full matrix are about 302 to 1. The next most significant term was CORRECT at skip +1. It was found on the 504-letter matrix against odds of about 86.9 to 1. Two spellings were sought for PUTIN (tet and tav for the T in his name). One of them (with a tav) wasfound against odds of about 6.7 to 1. Finally, the ELS of DAESH was located against odds of about 3.46 to 1 with no extra value allowed for the fact that it connects TRUMP to PUTIN. No value was assigned to NOT HIS ENEMY because I only found it a posteriori (I didn't think of looking for it before beginning the experiment, I just noticed it after producing the matrix). Overall, this matrix was found against combined odds of about 6,172,384 to 1.
OPINION. The President is correct (as the matrix and as Putin says) to pull our troops out of this lunatic nation. The U.S. military is overstretched. It's not just that we don't need more Muslim countries to die or be wounded in. We must consider what another country to fight in Syria does to the tremendous work load of our ground combat forces. When soldiers do too many tours it destroys families. It also makes it difficult to retain highly trained military talent.
Wikipedia states that American military forces are deployed in more than 150 countries around the world, with approximately 165,000 of its active-duty personnel serving outside the United States and its territories.
Is there a limit to the number of tours a U.S. soldier can go on?
Jim Bemis, Air Force Retiree; OEF veteran; Worked on some DoD policy issues wrote, "There was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force who had at least 14 deployments. No, I don't what length they were, but, depending upon your job, multiple deployments, albeit of shorter length, can happen. This generally includes the special forces and intelligence communities. One special forces soldier recently got out after having 6 deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan in 4 years. Marines are prone to more than the average number of deployments, not only because of what they do, but because their deployments are usually only for 7 months. So, no, there is no limit, and only your circumstances, job, or willingness to deploy will dictate how many times that will be."
In an article in the Christian Science Monitor about Bob Bales, a sergeant that murdered 17 Afghan civilians, we read that "The Pentagon acknowledges, too, the stresses put on its force by repeated deployments. Some 107,000 Army soldiers have been deployed to war three or more times since 2001, or some 20 percent of the active-duty force. More than 50,000 of those currently in uniform have completed four or more combat tours, Army figures indicate."
When I was an ensign in the Navy back in 1970 time away from my new bride was a major factor in my marriage then ending in divorce. We were together 40 days out of our first year of marriage. If it's tough on fathers (and now women) deployed (there were no women on our ships back then) it's even tougher on toddlers left behind who can forget who their parent is during a deployment. Combat tours will likely be necessary until the Messiah arrives, but we should be careful not to invest too heavily in too many fights. When we needed Russia to help us defeat Hitler, we used him. While it may be true that Russia tried to influence our election in 2016, that's what governments do - even ours of course like we did in 2016 in Israel. The Washington Times reported on July 16, 2016:
OBAMA ADMIN. SENT TAXPAYER MONEY TO CAMPAIGN TO OUST NETANYAHU.
The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.
Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.
While the ever-treasonous Barack Hussein Obama worked to defeat our Israeli ally, Israel can (and does) do much to maintain some semblance of care for Western interests on the ground in Syria. They are far better prepared to provide HUMINT (Human Intelligence) about what's going on there, and combat aircraft to take out targets in an emergency, although to minimize the prospect of provoking ISIS or the like from starting a campaign against Israel, it's best for us to maintain an aircraft carrier within striking distance of Syria. In doing so we must continue to coordinate combat flight operations with our Russian allies.
We have nobody in Syria that is an ally worth fighting for, though we should back and fund/equip an independent Kurdistan. Israel benefits from chaos in Syria in that under such circumstances nobody can seriously demand that they should return the (annexed) Golan Heights to Syria and the murderous Bashar Assad, but with its HUMINT assets on the ground Israel can provide us with eyes and ears in Syria that can allow us the luxury of withdrawing from constant presence where our forces are logical targets for a host of nutball radicals. Now is the time to get out and maintain careful observation by our allies and our intelligence surveillance platforms at sea, in the air and in space.
Note to DoD: If the Russians play the same IP games as you guys, by lopping off the 3 on the IP address 22.214.171.124 I see that this article was read on 12/28/2018 by someone in Krasnodar, Russia. I have seen this address here many times. However, without taking off the 3, I see an address that is based on the name of a very good friend who is a retired high ranking Coast Guard Intelligence officer. He has been pushing use of the Torah Code for intelligence purposes since 2003. Question - knowing that I'm a busy guy, do you really want me to go back to looking for messages in reverse IP addresses, etc.?
