Nance: A Wag the Dog Moment. Fugelsang: Never forget Yemen Gazi (Stephanie Miller Show 04/07/2017)

Malcolm Nance called in to Stephanie Miller Show just now and right after him, John Fugelsang called in. 

Outstanding Quotes:
Nance: All this [attack] did was accelerate the rehabilitation of that base by Russian forces that's going to be a nice base when we're done here. It's hard to believe this is not a wag the dog moment when we did not even destroy the chemicals.
Fugelsang: You can never forget Yemen Gazi ever after this
Nance: From what I understand from CNN this morning, no chemical weapons were struck and that was done deliberately.
Fugelsang: Jared and Bannon are now at war, can't wait to see who gets immunity to testify against the other one first  

Here is a quick transcript of both: 
Another entry in the City of Angels Winging it / Malcolm Nance Transcript Project 
S: A lot of people are talking about your exchange with Brian Williams last night. Where he was talking about beauty of the weapons and you said not for the victims. 

M:  Well, A, I love Brian Williams, I feel reassured when I'm talking to him
But he was talking about a quote that came from poetry I think it was from World War One, and he's right, armaments are actually beautiful
But on the receiving end it is as horrific as anything that comes but that's just noise, let's talk about-

S:  Malcolm, we talk all the time, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but the Tomahawk attacks last night seem to be trying to get attention off Trump Russia

M:  It is hard to look at that context.  It's terrible that the innocent victims were lost in Syria but there have been dozen of chemical attacks since 2013 by [?] regime, this is just the first where there was live video.  Trump is acting in an emotional capacity as opposed to military thinking, military has to be dispassionate but do it to brave the enemy’s capacity.  Not to (I think he said something about promoting political image)

S:  Trump is on record saying Obama would bomb Syria to get his poll numbers up, you see the Russian rope tightening around him and then he bombs Syria last night.

M:  He should have at least informed the Gang of Eight in the Senate as well as the majority leader in House and Senate, every president does that.  This was not an imminent threat there was no imminent need to strike, they could have done a retaliation- which was- [INAUDIBLE]
What I found fascinating was this morning I learned none of the chemical weapons were struck.  So what we've done is destroy an air base, a few air craft, the kill rate I understand was seven

S:  Right now they're reporting nine civilians including four children. 

M:  That's possible but there's a lot of coordinates you see from up in the air, the enemy tends to shoot off a lot of missiles and they can come down in civilian areas. 
Our missiles land within a three foot by three foot box we can choose the window pane they go through.
I saw the Tomahawk [INAUDIBLE] ones and I saw damage on the runway that appears to come from Russian surface to air missiles not from our attack. 

S:  It is hard when the president is a proven pathological liar to believe him when he says this is in our national security interest. 

M: Another guy that I love sitting next to is Chris Matthews, he knows politics better than anyone in United States especially the media.  This is not like the training center attack in nineteen ninety seven- where we killed over seventy terrorists, including three Nine-Eleven al-quaeda people. 
All this [attack] did was accelerate the rehabilitation of that base by Russian forces that's going to be a nice base when we're done here.  It's hard to believe this is not a wag the dog moment when we did not even destroy the chemicals.

S:  Some are reporting the Russians could have intercepted. 
continuehere
I think it would have been almost impossible to intercept, we're not stupid.  We’d take them outside and below-
I've spent a lot of time in  and those missiles would have gone south of Tripoli and used the mountain as a map and come down the mountain side and then to that base.  So Russians might not have even seen them. 
Now the Russians are swearing they'll build the surface to air capacity of this regime. 

S: Malcolm, now what?

M:  To be fair I think I don't have a problem with this strike, I have a problem with the results of the strike. The strike performed exactly as the White House and pentagon planned it but now the Syrians are going to take all the chemical weapons that are there and move them to other areas where they can't be struck.  So it's mission failure.  The intent was to send a message to the Syrian regime.  Anyone can destroy an air base.  [INAUDIBLE]

S:  Obviously the FBI is ramping up in Russia Trump investigation, what happens now, do you think?

M:  With regards to the Russian story, let me go back to Syrian story.  I think the air strike will fall off the radar in [news media etcetera] in hours, we know how the White House operates, we know some other glittery shiny object is going to make him jump all over the place and who knows what he’ll come out with.  He might attack Obama again for not being as big a man he was in Syria.
Information comes down, again, what I understand from CNN this morning, no chemical weapons were struck and that was done deliberately.  This will not distract from the Russian story and [INAUDIBLE] we're going to get those- either Kuschner or [INAUDIBLE] or their acolytes, millions of dollars to try to distract from this story.
Only thing that can happen is for it to go down the rabbit hole, and we do not want that to happen.

(Transcriber, just as I finished cleaning up the Malcolm Nance interview, John Fugelsang came on, and I got most of what he said, although he really talks fast and I'm not recording these shows… )

Fugelsang: You can never forget Yemen Gazi ever after this.  You might want to get used to these air strikes since Trump’s approval ratings are so low, but at least he deplores the death of those babies that he wouldn't allow as refugees in our country.

S:  It is really getting serious up in here. I feel like we're in a race against the clock with the Russia investigation, obviously the net is tightening and he's starting

F:  And I don't know if it's going to work, there's a lot going on here, don’t want to say statements before hear all the facts.
But this [Syria attack]  is not what Steve Bannon wanted and not what his Nazi home base wants.  Trump promised dozens of times he would be the non interventionist president, Jared and Bannon are now at war,
Can't wait to see who gets immunity to testify against the other one first.
(Steph refers to a tweet Fugelsang made yesterday about Mitch McConnell)
F:  That's right, you're only queer if you're on the bottom.
