Syria: Chemical Reaction?

In an official statement yesterday, Deputy White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest claimed that “The United States strongly condemns any and all use of chemical weapons.”

That’s not true, of course — the US government uses chemical weapons, including the internationally banned substance known as “CS,” on its own citizens, approves the export of such weapons to regimes it approves of, and ignores the use of such weapons by “allies.”

Nonetheless, US President Barack Obama calls the alleged — on the basis, so far, of little evidence — use of chemical weapons by Syrian government forces a “red line” which could trigger an escalation of American military intervention in that country’s civil war.

Why? Not because chemical weapons may have been used, but because Obama is already committed to the overthrow of Bashar al-Assad’s regime and he needs excuses.

Unfortunately, that excuse is getting pretty tired, and trotting it out is really just evidence that when it comes to foreign policy, Barack Obama is indeed serving George W. Bush’s fourth term.

The US has no legitimate defense interest in Syria’s internal situation, and no manufactured excuse will create such an interest. It may very well, however, create “blowback” that costs American lives.

Now, more than ever, it’s important to let the politicians know: NO WAR ON SYRIA!

  1. US holds spate of Syria talks as concern grows over chemical weapons claims

    The US held a flurry of diplomatic talks on Thursday to discuss possible new action against the Syrian government amid mounting international concern over alleged chemical weapons attacks.

    Though it stressed it had still not yet seen conclusive proof of chemical weapon use, the US State Department revealed that secretary of state John Kerry had held seven calls with overseas counterparts on Thursday, and had taken part in a national security council meeting at the White House.

    This was done deal before the CIA/al Qaeda even began let alone completed the attack, whatver it does turn out to be.

    They got their new best friend Vlad the Impaler to welsh on the anti-aircraft missiles Russia had contracted to deliver to Syris … the only thing that might of hindered their the USSA/NATO/Israeli destruction of the country from the air, just like Libya.

    Preemptory action is the game plan. Get things rolling before there’s any proof of their fraud … Iraq redux.

    Impeach Barack Obama … the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and serial Aggressor and Assassin.

    Maybe that would take his mind of destroying other countries and focus him on saving his own sorry ass for a change. Hit him upside the head with a 2×4, maybe that’ll get his attention? He thinks there’s no crime he cannot commit with impunity.

    I’m beginning to think he’s right. Is everyone, other than the usual fraction of 1%, asleep in America?

  2. We try once again to petition the lord with prayer …

    WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

    not start yet another aggressive war in Syria !

    Please heed our urgent plea and avoid yet another in the series of aggressive US wars against Islamic nations !

    The ‘problems’ in Syria are the result of your interference there, Mr President; of both your direct support of al Qaeda through the CIA and your indirect support through the autocracies of Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

    Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya have all been destroyed by US government aggression based on lies.

    Pull back from the abyss. Do not directly involve our country in the devastation of yet another Islamic nation.

    The Nobel Peace Prize is not supposed to be a license to kill !
