Reuters Headline: “Pakistan Must Adopt Different Approach to Terrorism”…

We are only posting this outline to highlight clear and convincing evidence of how the Trump Doctrine assigns ownership; and how to see it in play when broadcast by MSM.

Reuters Headline: “Pakistan must adopt a different approach to terrorism”…

It’s not accidental. This is a repeating pattern.  –EXAMPLES HERE– This is the “Trump Doctrine at work; yet for some reason the majority of media and news consumers cannot see the strategy.  President Trump, and team, have assigned responsibility for bringing the Taliban to the table of deconfliction in Afghanistan to Pakistan.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Tuesday that Pakistan must adopt a different approach to terrorism and the United States will condition its support on Islamabad’s delivering results in this area.

“There’s been an erosion in trust because we have witnessed terrorist organizations being given safe haven inside of Pakistan to plan and carry out attacks against U.S. servicemen, U.S. officials, disrupting peace efforts inside of Afghanistan,” Tillerson told reporters in the State Department.

“Pakistan must adopt a different approach, and we are ready to work with them to help them protect themselves against these terrorist organizations … We are going to be conditioning our support for Pakistan and our relationship with them on them delivering results in this area.” (read more)

Earlier we shared how to spot if this doctrine was being deployed

So what can we anticipate as next steps?  Well, if the familiar pattern repeats:

  • Look for Pakistan to attempt to avoid ownership.
  • Look for President Trump and Secretary Tillerson to keep pulling Pakistan into each discussion point when referencing Afghanistan.
  • Look for President Trump tweets aimed at creating and affirming the U.S. expectations of Pakistan.  Each time this happens the ownership gets stronger.
  • Look for our diplomatic team to talk about Pakistan helping to solve the problem.
  • Look for any affirming U.S. signals of warmth and friendship toward India.

These will all be indications of the ongoing strategy.

And that process is exactly what we are seeing unfold.

For those who are worried about expansive military endeavors that will result in death and quagmire, put your mind at ease. The military is needed as the visible alternative to economic leverage, see North Korea.  However in this approach the military is the last option desired.  Military is a reference; but military engagement unto itself is not the central tenet or fulcrum upon which the economic leverage is dependent.

The U.S. military is not the leverage, the military helps creates leverage.

The leverage itself is economic. Financial interests are always the best leverage to use because inherent within the fundamental principles of economics is ‘self-interest’. Actions taken generate financial benefits; those benefits are direct and immediate to the interests of those generating the results.

Just Hit Play

Very easy to understand & doesn’t seem like they’re trying to get something past you with a bunch of words & “professor-speak” like he-who-shall-not-be-named.

      So refreshing & it will be so sad in 7-1/2 years when we have a regular politician back in the office. Hopefully the people will have gotten used to it by then & demand better – one can hope, right?!?!

    Our President admitted last night that his initial instinct was to get the hell out of Afghanistan. He also stated that when sitting in the chair of the presidency, you think and you react differently. I am so grateful to have a President that realizes it and is willing to see both sides to every situation. Everything he does is for us. He loves our country and its citizens with every ounce of blood in his body!

    His critics have seen what has happened in Iraq by completely withdrawing immediately. Look at the hell on earth that has been unleashed because of it. We are still fighting ISIS in Asia, North Africa and the ME. Pulling out of Afghanistan would cause something similar to occur. The rise of Al-Quada, ISIS, Taliban etc. We will use a similar strategy to what we have done in Iraq. Mosul is completely liberated and the Iraqi forces are moving on to the rest of the places in their country that ISIS remains to eradicate them from the face of the earth. What changed was our approach of annihilation versus containment and us going completely in on training their forces.

    I also think that once the GCC countries deal with the situation pertaining to Qatar, you will see more of their troops fighting this war in Afghanistan. I am so grateful that Pakistan will be dealt with much differently than under previous administrations. Getting them to play ball is crucial. The other thing that should make these morons sleep well is the fact that our President meant every single word about Pakistan. They have been put on notice! They can look at China as an example of what happens when you are put on notice!

    Also, I listened to the entire briefing with TREX and thoroughly enjoyed the last few statements pertaining to NK before he took questions. He made it a point to say that NK has been behaving better since the UN vote from a few weeks ago. He talked about the fact that he and the President are pleased by this. He said that if it continues, there could be dialogue in the very near future.

    He never mentioned the Panda by name but I knew he was sending a clear message to him to keep it up because we are seeing positive signs. Yet, our Lion decides to have Secretary Mnuchin turn the screws on 6 individuals and 10 entities from Russia and China (see link below). This makes the Panda very mad but it also shows him that if he does what is needed with NK, the Panda can be happy down the road.

      While that is good for the US citizens; perhaps a bit hard on ‘The Donald’! The 2018 elections are critical, and I hope all Treepers help P45 get that done correctly, (YOUR CORRECTLY), not mine. After that Re-up in 2020 to show support; ….less than one year into that P45 pulls a Bannon to be more effective outside the swamp. Pence tales over for the remaining term. He appoints Ivanka VP; then the both run for election the first 2024. The 2028 re-up is just a ‘rinse repeat as needed’ . This sets up the whole new stage for US government. Only the the very best serve their country until they can locate a superior replacement the job. MAGA 🙂

      You are so right about the Iraqi forces! Their military leaders are talking like our President as well. This was from three months ago:

      From the article linked above:

      MOSUL: Iraqi forces have recaptured nearly 90 per cent of west Mosul from the Daesh group and militants in the city are on the “brink of total defeat,” officers said on Tuesday.

      Both Staff Lieutenant General Abdulwahab al-Saadi, a senior Iraqi special forces commander, and Colonel John Dorrian, the spokesman for the US-led international coalition against IS, said that the end was near for militants in the city.

      “They have two options: die and go to hell or raise the white flag. They have no third option,” Saadi told reporters at his headquarters in Mosul.

      “The enemy is completely surrounded,” Dorrian told the news conference in Baghdad.

      “The enemy is on the brink of total defeat in Mosul.”

          Time to recognize that those who would destroy our history are enemies of the American People, and call them as such, and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the Law, making examples out of them for the whole country to see.

          If only we had an Attorney General who hadn’t disappeared into the Federal Witness Protection Program.

          If we had a chief Law Enforcement officer, the majority would not have their God-given Rights trampled DAILY by Soros-funded, Democrat-organized rent-a-mobs, and the majority in this country would not be second-class citizens who are not even allowed to look at the bus, much less ride in the back of it.

          And we wouldn’t have things like this happening, because the majority would have their Right to basic Freedom of Speech protected:

          ‘America First Rallies’ Canceled, Replaced with Online ‘Day of ACTion’ over Threat of Violence


          By contrast, minorities’ rights are not just protected and promoted, they have Super-Rights, rights which are above and beyond the majority.

          The majority has no rights at all.

          And nobody to even acknowledge our existence.

          Not even the right honorable ever-esteemed and righteous defender of all that is Good and Just, the greatest man who ever lived according to many, Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III.

          Where is he?!?

          Out to lunch, as usual.

          This is a disgrace.

          Imagine for ONE freakin’ second, that instead of fascist anti-fa and black supremacist BLM, if a bunch of KKK and white supremacists were being organized by the GOP and funded by the Koch Brothers to go around the country shutting down every public event and speech by Leftists and Obama supporters, and tearing down monuments and statues to Martin Luther King Jr.

          Imagine the righteous fury that would descend on them like a s@#$storm hurricane of napalm. No expense would be spared. Politicians would be demogoging to cameras and microphones 24/7. The National Guard would be called in, mayors and governors arrested. Federal investigations would be launched to find out why local Police were ordered to ‘stand down’ while the Constitutional RIGHTS of minorities were trampled underfoot and wanton violence committed against them.

          An entire new RIGHTS movement would be born, a whole new Department of Minority Rights would be established, people would suffer permanent injuries from virtue-signalling over-extension accidents. The Salem Witch Trials would look quaint by comparison.

          But when the opposite happens, when it’s fascist Marxists and black racists organized by the Democrat Party and funded by Soros, and they shut down the free speech and freedom of assembly of the majority, the Rule of Law is quiet like a little itty-bitty church mouse, on a cold winter night.

          Shhhhhhhh… don’t say anything.

          All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

            Its sad that so many people here do not seem to understand how an honorable AG is supposed to operate ie. in secret until after a grand jury has heard his evidence and votes to give him permission to indict and move on to a public trial. BTW his DOJ has set up a tip line so citizens can submit video evidence of what happened in Cville. He called it a civil rights matter which means the Virginia politicians are being investigated and he said it involved domestic terrorism which means Antifa is being investigated as well. Actually theyve been building a case against Antifa for 4 months. Everybody who has bothered to stay informed knows this. So please, stop being disrespectful about AG Sessions, a great, great American. Concentrate your energy on the people YOU hired and put in office, your Congreesmen and leave our President’s hires up to him.

              That’s all well and good for criminal investigations, and I hope you’re right, but I have zero trust in government besides mission-specific Terminators like Mnuchin, Lighthizer, Ross, Tillerson and Mattis.

              I like Sessions, I WANT to believe hasn’t been on a 7 month siesta, but it will be a MIRACLE if he has been conducting grand juries all across America regarding the Axis of Evil (Clinton, Obama, Soros and associated minions) and NONE of it has leaked.

              But besides all that, there is the small matter that AMERICANS are being DEPRIVED of their Constitutional RIGHT to speak freely and assemble, and that doesn’t require any investigation AT ALL.

              It requires SHOWING UP with enough force to annihilate the fascist anti-fa and black supremacist BLM, and arrest every governor, mayor and police chief who ‘stood down’ (AGAIN).

              If the ^%$# was going on and it was white people stomping (literally) on minority rights, this whole country would burn down. The whole freakin’ government and news media would re-locate to the epicenter of the violence, and EVERYBODY who even KNEW ANYBODY who was responsible would go to jail FOREVER.

              I’ve HAD IT with the double and triple standards.

              I’m not riding in the back of the ^%$@ing bus anymore.

              And if the chief Law Enforcement Officer in the Land doesn’t DO SOMETHING about this and put a STOP to it, then sooner or later, the People WILL.

              And the ‘powers that be ‘ will have NO ONE to blame but themselves.

    I love President al-Sisi from Egypt! I think he was praying as much as us on Election Day. He knew damn well that the decision of the American people would make or break him and his country. He loves to call our president “Your Excellency”. Other ME officials do the same but for
    me, President al-Sisi actually means it from his heart. Egypt is and will continue to be a major player in Northern Africa and the ME. They are working hand-in-hand with Jordan and SA. Egypt doesn’t have the financial stability of SA but they have the fighters that will take the war wherever it needs to be fought. SA realizes that and that is one of the major reasons they are investing $115 billion dollars into their military hardware from us.

    President al-Sisi, King Abdullah from Jordan and eventually King Slaman’s son, will be the backbone of the GCC in the ME. I would not be at all surprised to see Israel form an even closer alliance with the three countries. They have seven years and 4 months to get all their ducks in a row since our President will be at the helm guiding the USA. They will not waste a single day in their endeavor because time is so precious.

    From an article months ago that SD posted:

    Egypt’s President al-Sisi to President Trump: “You Can Do The Impossible”…

    More than any other Arab leader Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has led the way in confronting Islamic terrorism.

    It was President al-Sisi who exiled the Muslim Brotherhood and formed a coalition of Arab nations to confront the extremist elements promoting violence.

    From another article SD posted:

    ◾Disbanded the Muslim Brotherhood as a political terror entity.
    ◾Arrested those who burned churches and attacked Coptic Christians.
    ◾Jailed or banished the extremist forces.
    ◾Supported Israel’s right to exist and defend it’s borders.
    ◾Defeated Hamas in the border region.
    ◾Destroyed the border terror tunnels used by Hamas
    ◾Pressured Hamas and the PA to negotiate the ceasefire, and forced the PA and Hamas to assemble ONE negotiating group for their interests.
    ◾Fought extremism in the Sinai region, and fought against ISIS infiltration.
    ◾Fought the Libyan new al-Qaeda network “Libyan Dawn”.
    ◾Charged and prosecuted the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood, who fled to Qatar.
    ◾Followed the MB to Qatar and initiated sanctions against Qatar until they stopped financing and harboring terror.
    ◾Formed a coalition against Qatar including the UAE and Saudi Arabia who withdrew their ambassadors and isolated Qatar in the region.
    ◾Won reelection with almost 70% of the vote.
    ◾Holds an 80%+ job approval rating among ALL Egyptians.
    ◾Shut down Qatar financed Al Jazerra propaganda machine.
    ◾Supported the framework for a new constitution which supports minority protections.
    ◾Won a victory against Qatar as they finally conceded and stopped safeguarding terrorists. Sending the MB leadership to the new safe harbor of Turkey.
    ◾United the moderate (non violent) Arab coalition, the Gulf Security Council, and constructed a unity principle that supports the safety of Jordan and formed a coalition to defend if needed.
    ◾Faced down and quietly defeated Turkey’s bid for a security council seat in the United Nations.
    ◾Negotiated a safe passage coalition for Israel and Greece to form an energy based economic trade agreement.
    ◾Continues to fight the Islamist extremists inside Libya.
    ◾Continues to fight ISIS in the Northern Sinai region.
    ◾Expanded the border safety zone with Gaza to insure greater control and protection from weapons smuggling.

      I don’t think Pakistan is taking our President Trump seriously, and I think he is well aware of that. I do think our President has a few good plans up his sleeve to show he means business though.

      After a few bumps, I’m hoping Pakistan has the right leaders to see how serious our President really is. We give them so much money, and by putting a stop to that flow will really tick some of them off. It’s like they not only expect it, but demand it since they hold a nuclear arsenal, and it has been going for so long. All of our leaders have bowed down to them before in some way or another, or so it seems.

      They’re also quite the arrogant and corrupt sons of guns too. Their corruption is a way of life and have fine tuned it into an art form. It amazes me to what they’ve gotten away with for so long. It’s as if they know our past leaders could’ve cared less about our Soldiers. This is of course only my opinion.

      I wonder if Pakistan’s leaders are going to rely off of our msm for their views on our President. It would be to be to their own detriment of course.

      I also wouldn’t be surprised if Pakistan plays to do right and says all the right words that they will most certainly do their best to squash the jihadists. They’re known for using a lot of pretty words and then stabbing those in the back.

      This is certainly worth keeping a good eye on and it will be interesting to see how Pakistan decides to turn themselves around.

    What I do care about, is that we are doing what we are doing for the benefit of the USA as a holistic whole, and not doing it just to line the pockets of the wealthy industrial elites and the politicians who do their bidding. War, after all, is a very profitable game.

    I trust Trump to be the holistic guy, and so I am happy with his policy in Afghanistan. Indeed, I think this is the difference between Trump’s policies, and those of Obama and Bush, as well as Clinton.
