Sadly no matter how questionable or fabricated the pretext is, it appears that there is nothing we can do except sit back and watch the US and its surrogates invade and decimate yet another nation.
The whole Syrian scenario is right out of the Iraq-Afghanistan invasion playbook. We know that the US and its surrogates, including NATO, Sunni Arab partners and Israel, are all waiting for a pretext and preparing for an invasion of Syria and Iran. They want to invade for resources and pre-planned geopolitical goals, this is a given, the only problem is there has not been enough of a reason to, until now. Thanks to whom? Once again, Fox News.
Beginning with the events of 9-11, the catalyst for the Project for the New American Century’s plans for global military domination, up until today, we have seen the US run rampant all over the world invading, killing, droning, assassinating and over-turning governments at will.
It began with Afghanistan, a country that had no connection to 9-11. We now know they knew that and invaded anyway. It was their plan and they manipulated the media to bring it about. A plan spearheaded by Fox News, which also helped the neo-conservatives usurp the office of the US Presidency to install George Bush, the spread lies and disinformation connecting Afghanistan to 9-11 so the American people would sheepishly goose-step alongside those hungering for war.
Claims connecting Afghanistan to 9-11 were later found to be false but that has not mattered. An invasion is an invasion, it doesn’t matter to the US how many brown people they kill in Afghanistan on false claims. This act of aggressive war was a crime against humanity, but no one will ever be brought to justice and no one will ever dare to prosecute.
Iraq was not connected to 9-11 either, but the US tried to claim they were. Hussein never allowed al-Qaeda to operate in Iraq. That claim did not work, so the US cooked up the whole Yellowcake story, claiming Iraq was attempting to produce nuclear weapons. That was found to have been a lie too. Fox News was
The aggressive invasion of Iraq and the execution of its leaders was also a crime against humanity for which no one has had to answer for. Another war crime and crime against all civilized people all over the world is the “terror” prison at Guantanamo Bay Cuba. It is a place to keep and torture men who were defending their families and homes from foreign invaders who wanted nothing but to rape their countries of its resources and rob its people the right to self-determination.
The continued dronings and extra-judicial executions, the daily kill lists, the manipulation and over-throwing of governments, the list goes on and on. These are all war crimes and crimes against all of humanity, for which no one has yet been prosecuted and which no country is seemingly able to stop.
Then of course we had Muammar Gaddafi and all of the lies associated with the invasion and destruction of that country with thousands more dead at the hands of the US and its NATO lap dogs, another place where resources were needed and another leader who stopped trading oil in dollars.
Where did it all start? Yugoslavia and the invasion and genocide on the Serbs, also an invasion based on lies for which no has ever paid a price. Yugoslavia was the litmus test for the West and its “resource-and-geopolitical-plan” invasions. Had they been stopped there the world would be a different place today.
The United States has been usurped by madmen and lunatic killers bent on forcing the entire planet to its knees by force. Maybe those are strong words but that is the truth. Just like a brutal cop who murders and then places a cold gun in his dead victim’s hand, the US is rolling through the world like a cancer, killing and invading at will. They will invade Syria and Iran, and then like that cop, come up with the reason later, and like that cop they must be stopped.
We know, without a shadow of a doubt that the US will lie about and produce “evidence” of anything under the sun if it will allow them to carry out their military adventures. Then why should we be surprised by or believe anything they say now with regards to Syria, in particular the claim that President Bashar al-Assad has chemical weapons.
The US has long ago lost any and all credibility and needs to be locked in a padded cell and have all of its weapons removed forcibly before it kills any more people.
Unless one is suffering from loss of long term memory all of the above facts should be enough to cause alarm, and the hairs on the back of the neck to stand on end when a “news” outlet like Fox News, which has lied and lied again, tells the world Syria has
When it comes to the lies on Syria, well
So as the US media attempts to plant the gun, US troops are being amassed on
Syria itself has denounced NATO’s actions and U.S. and German statements. UPI Asia reports that Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Miqdad said, "Syria stresses again, for the 10th, the 100th time, that if we had such (chemical) weapons, they would not be used against its people.
Fox needs to do better than citing "unnamed senior officials" to allow the US to fulfill its dream of punishing President Assad. As U.S. President Barack Obama said that the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian authorities will serve as a "red line" which, if crossed, will be followed by the “punishment” of President Bashar al-Assad.
Is the world going to sit by as the out of control American killing machine comes up with yet another false pretext to invade yet another country, decimate its population and assassinate its leader? Is there anything
