How it is…

Why Syria will be Barack Obama’s Iraq as US media buries the truth


Somebody has to stop this madness.

  1. I totally agree with you. Getting involved in these middle eastern conflicts is madness. These religious and political sects have been fighting each other for as long as they’ve existed, and that will never change. Theoretically, even if the Syrian rebels were to overthrow the government, it would not be long and they would be fighting each other. We are not the world’s baby sitters. Once more it’s the same ole’ crap. The old men send the young men off to fight and die. Radio’s late Paul Harvey once said during the cold war years, the nuclear bomb was the best thing ever invented. Why? Suddenly the old men aren’t near as eager to get involved in a war because now they could actually be killed too. If the U.S. and Europe send troops into Syria, just let Russia send troops in on the side of the Syrian government.Then watch how quickly this would all come to a screeching halt. It would be the same as what happened when China sent troops into Korea. President Truman no longer thought war was such a great idea when two nuclear super powers facing each other.

    • Always the same with bullies.
      Nobody (in power) cared when massacres were going on in Sudan or Rwanda, yet they clamour for humanitarian intervention when there is a geopolitical and monetary value in intervening. Why don’t they just hold up their hands and say “Yes we’re building an empire and anyone who doesn’t like it will be killed.” At least they’d be being honest for once.

  2. Counterpunch reports are credible… this one is a terrible prophecy, for Syria and the US! I’d missed this. Thanks!

    • Glad to be of service MJ. To be honest with you my friend, I’m getting really uncomfortable with the way the world is going and I feel so powerless to stop it.

      • I agree. What amazes me is how blind we are to the ways in which we ultimately hurt ourselves. I mean, I cannot imagine that a war in Syria has NO effect on India and Indians… in some way, it comes back to me. Still, we persist in our ways.

  3. War, weapons, anger I would like to change the world in a better way. Kindness, sharing and patience. I can do no more than not be frightened into supporting greedy profiteering multinational organisations.
    People need to be careful where they are putting their money. Some shares pay big dividends but are put into producing evil things. We also need to earn our living in an occupation that is a benefit to the world in general.
    We need to watch our own actions not buying what we are told we must have by advertising. Buying what we need and repairing things rather than buying new we can also pass on things we no longer need. In a lot of small ways we can contribute to good. A constant drip can fill a bucket we have been trying the quick violent way and it does not work. Try caring and sharing and we will need patience. I am an optimist Danny, keep smiling. .

  4. Where do you see the compulsions lie for such involvement?

    • Controlling the Middle East means controlling the oil. In the way of that stands Iran – what if they convinced the other OPEC lads to start trading oil in Euros or in gold? The end of the petrodollar means the end of the US empire.
      Syria is the last ally of Iran in the region and also the only Russian naval base in the region. Of course there is also Israel to consider, they’d love Syria and Iran removed from the board, then it would be bye-bye Palestine.
