Syria: A wet dream gone wrong for Washington warlords

Washington had hoped for a slam-dunk like Libya. But Syrian resistance and success over religious fanatics who would destroy the secular rule of Syrian President Bashar Assad have inspired a deluge of anti-Syrian hysterical propaganda.

To win American public approval of their planned attack on Iraq the war makers created the false allegations that Iraq had nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction that threatened the American continent.

Of course we all know, or should know, if we’ve been paying attention, that the reasons for that war were simply lies.

Telling lies to go to war has become an American tradition, from Vietnam through Iraq, Libya, and now Syria. As True North Perspective has revealed, Syria has been on a list of five middle east countries to be subjected to regime change by the empire builders in Washington.

As with the Iraq and WMD lies, now the US is fabricating a chemical weapons claim that Assad is on the verge of using them, or already has used them.

This hysterical claim is made despite Assad’s declaration that he would not use the chemical weapons on his own people. Why should we not believe him? There is no evidence that he is a liar.

The only evidence we have of lying are those told by Washington again, and again, and again.

The accusations come despite a recent statement by a leading UN investigator.

"Our investigators have been in neighboring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals,” Carla Del Ponte told Swiss TV last week.

"According to their report of last week, which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated."  

The Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, of which Del Ponte is a leading panelist, was created in August 2011 to investigate alleged human rights violations in the Syrian crisis. It is due to issue its full report next month.

Carla Del Ponte has said that the evidence points to sarin gas use by the opposition, not by those loyal to President Assad.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Aleksandr Lukashevich has warned that global public opinion is being prepared for a possible military intervention in the Syrian crisis.

“Moscow is concerned by signs of preparing public opinion in the world to the possibility of intervention using force into the lingering internal conflict in the Syrian Arab Republic,” said Mr Lukashevich.

“We are calling for a halt to the politicizing of this exceptionally serious issue and the inflating of the anti-Syrian atmosphere.”

The hypocrisy of the American position is astounding. What right authorizes Washington to police the world? But while they’re at it why don’t they concern themselves with such slave states as Saudi Arabia?

Why don’t they seriously concern themselves with the proven tens of thousands of slaves that are bought and sold and brutally exploited within the continental United States?

They get away with it because they have a powerful propaganda machine that drowns out relatively small voices like True North Perspective and True North Humanist Perspective.

We’ll do our best to make our sound ever louder.

Meanwhile, take it easy, but take it.

Looking forward
