Oh, Right..... More ______Weapons. How Convenient.
And speaking of Iraq, this story just reeks of the fabricated bullshit they trotted out to justify the unprovoked invasion there. Frankly, it makes no sense. There is no pay-off for the Syrian government to launch such an attack against its own people. As Journalist Michael Rivero writes:
"Assad had been requesting, for months, for a special United Nations Chemical Weapons investigation team to come to Syria to check out earlier allegations that his government had used chemical weapons. The United Nations finally agreed. So why would Assad be so stupid as to carry out a chemical weapons attack on women and children the very day the UN chemical weapons inspectors arrive, just miles from where they are staying? And the answer is, Assad would not be that stupid. This chemical attack was carried out by the hired mercenaries to frame on Assad, and women and children were targeted to maximize the shock value for propaganda purposes....The gain is all on the side of the US Government desperate to get the war agenda going again."
Veteran's Today writer Tony Cartalucci reminds us that "as far back as 2007, it was a documented fact that the West, including the United States and its allies Saudi Arabia and Israel, conspired to use terrorists drawn from the ranks of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda in an attempt to overthrow the governments of Iran and Syria."
And Washington's Blog notes that "given the well-documented fact that the U.S. has been planning regime change in Syria for 20 years straight – and planned to use false ploys for 50 years – it is worth being skeptical until all of the evidence is in. Indeed, many are asking whether this is Iraq War 2.0..."
The war industries that Wall Street loves so dearly could really use another war. In fact, these industries and their elite stockholders depend on continual war-making to remain profitable. (Not to mention all the members of Congress who personally profit from war.) Attacking Syria has nothing to do with "defending the defenseless", or "defending America", or any of the other bullshit soundbites the elites like to toss out. This is about a long-planned regime change, just as it was in Iraq, for reasons having to do with resources and control of the region. Period.
And the psychopaths who pulled it off in Iraq not only got off scot-free, but they profited obscenely from it, to boot. So why wouldn't they do it again? There is no accountability, no justice from this government! The only people who are "brought to justice" are the whistle-blowers who expose the crimes, the fraud, and the way Gov-Corp really operates. They, like us, are the expendable ones.
(UPDATE, 8/26/13: The U.S. is giving all signs of preparing for a unilateral military strike on Syria after an alleged chemical weapons attack last week. Any move to attack Syria could entangle American involvement in a brutal civil war...)
