"Humanitarian Intervention" in Syria: Towards Regional War?
by grtv

Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, weighs in on the insurrectionary nature of the Syrian conflict and its potential to generate a larger regional conflict in the Middle East.

As the Syrian crisis enters its 16th month, the recent massacres in Houla and Hama have revived calls for foreign intervention and the toppling of President Bashar al-Assad. US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice has recently hinted that the United States would soon take action outside of the Annan plan and the authority of the United Nations if the persistent violence in Syria continued unabated.

While the Syrian opposition severs its commitment to uphold Kofi Annan's peace plan and openly calls for a UN- no-fly zone to replace the monitoring mission, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has announced a new transition plan that would remove Assad from power completely. As outside forces plan a post-Assad transition strategy, the people of Syria are fast approaching a historic crossroads, of which may lead to a broader sectarian conflict that would forever reshape the Middle East.

The American Empire is truly a sick nation and people.

Ever notice how Americans--including eveb the fake US "antiwar" movement--loves to paint other countries as a military threat, even as it's their own country that is aggressively attacking one nation after another?

The United Snakes of America is a serial aggressor nation that, in typical Goebbelsian form, psychologically projects its own militaristic nature onto its opponents.

This is not just a pathology of the American regime or "Washington," as these self-proclaimed US peace activists try to spindoctor the issue.

This is a pathology of the American people themselves since 1776,

After all, America was and is founded as a White colonizer empire since Jamestown and Plymouth Rock.

As such, Americans as a people have a desperate need to think of themselves as the “Good Guys” who are perpetually threatened by “evil-doers.”

They simply don’t have the balls to face the fact that the true evil-doers are looking at themselves in the mirror.

Americans are a pathetic excuse for human beings.

So is the threats to get Russia and China to start war, is this what is beings said when the U.S. is making threats to them?
I am working to come out of this confusion, sorry if this sounds simple to you but it does not to me with all the propaganda, and shifting with statements in news.
