Top Pentagon officials have spoken out in defence of a U.S. bombing raid on Syrian government forces in Syria on Thursday.
Tom Welsh said:
How very odd. Yet at the same time, the Russian, Iraqi and Iranian governments are cooperating and coordinating closely with that “non-existent” Syrian government. And it is recognised by the Chinese and Egyptian governments too. And the UN, where it has a place alongside all the other member nations.
Why on earth would the Syrian government be considered “non-existent”? As well describe Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s British coalition government 1940-5 as “non-existent”, just because the country was fighting for its life against a powerful aggressor.
I feel that it is the USA whose government might better be described as “non-existent”. There are lots of people drawing government salaries – far too many, in fact – but their levels of coordination are so low it is hard to speak of a single government. Even in foreign affairs, the Pentagon has at least one policy, the State Department several, and the CIA and other alphabet soup have policies of their own (but they are – shhhhhhh! – secret).

While listing the different entities in what is loosely described as the US government, and their several “foreign policies”, I notice that I have omitted the President.
That was not a mistake.
