The Five Year U.S. War against Syria Enters a New Phase
I need to be talked down. Donald Trump, the President of this country and the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces and intelligence services, has unilaterally attacked Syria with missiles aimed at government and military resources, based on the lie that the Assad government was behind the recent alleged chemical weapons incident in Syria. There is no doubt the alleged chemical weapon incident was a false flag taken to justify this very action. Anyone who doubts that, prove me wrong.
To keep it in perspective, our last president, Obama and his Secretary of States Clinton and Kerry, also attacked Syria starting with the fake Arab Spring and the unleashing of their proxy Al Qaeda turned ISIS army against the Syria people and the Assad government. Those calling for congressional authorization to attack Syria should have been calling for it for the last five years because that's when the U.S. first attacked Syria (this iteration).
The despicable duo McCain and Graham are happy, the neocons are happy, the Clintons are happy, all the American warmongers and imperialists are happy, Trump has saved the day. They'll finally get their regime change and be able to proceed post haste to Iran. That's their hope anyway.
The lies and propaganda regarding the war in Syria have been off the charts for five straight years, The mainstream, corporate media has literally joined together with our own fucking government to purposefully lie to the American people about what has been happening in Syria. That includes the vast majority of news on the internet. The only places where the entire truth has been documented has been the very sites the establishment labels fake news. The corporate media continues to label it a "civil war". Even supposedly alternative news sites, like Democracy Now, have used that label which is not only erroneous, but flat out a propaganda false narrative meant to obscure the real reasons for the war. It's meant to paint the war as a fight between Syrians for the future of their country when in fact it's a war the U.S. and Israel started to do exactly what Trump wants to do now, regime change and country balkanization. It's not and has never been a "civil war". That is bullshit. The plans have been in the works for decades.
Clearly, what has hit me most in this is not the fact that the U.S., behind it's new president Donald Trump, has unleashed a barrage of missiles into Syria. Nor is it the lies that I hear from Trump, Clinton, McCain, Graham, the corporate media and most of the alternative media. Nor is it the possibility of nuclear war with Russia. What has hit me most is reading and listening to the people of this country. After the Gulf of Tonkin, the JFK assassination, MLK assassination, 9/11, WMD's and babies in incubators and the Iraq war, Obama's red line and many other obvious and proven lies from our government and the oligarchy's media, very few people want to know the truth. Even when told, they cannot accept it for one reason or another. It doesn't get through. Today on the caucus99percent blog, a relative bastion of insightfulness, there were some of who felt the Syria war was too complex and that "we" should not "intervene" over this alleged chemical attack. To clarify, it's not that complex. The U.S. and company are trying to and have been trying to take down the Assad government and Syria for the last five years. And there is no intervening about it, the U.S. has been attacking Syria for five years, how the hell can it intervene? Especially for something it is behind, i.e., this is a false flag event.
I'm stuck between it's fucking useless to so pissed I need to do something about it. I just don't know if there are enough people to join me. Most everybody else seems too fucking confused.
