Striking Syria

by William Skink

No authority sought from Congress. No vote from the UN Security Council. No conclusive evidence of claimed gas attack or time for a thorough investigation. No outcry from the resistance. No critical corporate media reporting framing this as a violation of international law.

No, this is America doing what America does, post-9/11. America the rogue state. America, purveyor of terrorism. No credibility. No consistency of principle. No ability to compare what is happening in Syria to what is happening in Yemen and Gaza.

No hope, no peace, no chance truth will rise above the lies and propaganda. It won’t stop. No one is even trying to stop it anymore.

We just wait for the blowback, which will lead to the next escalation.

And the show goes on…

    My Facebook post the morning: “The moral posturing of the Trump administration to justify yesterday’s missile attacks is especially disgusting. They keep talking about Asad killing innocent children with gas. This may or may not be true — the military has a long history of lying about atrocities to justify their actions. And if it was true, it’s a situation that should be approached through diplomacy and our country ought to stop blocking innocent Syrian refugees from seeking safety in our country.
    What the Trump administration is not talking about is the U.S.-enabled Saudi attacks on Yemen which have led to the deaths of many thousands of innocent people, many of them from curable or preventable diseases. And they’re not talking about U.S.-enabled Israeli murders of innocent Palestinians.”

    I’m still not sold on the idea of America being the world’s policeman.

    Sure, what Assad is doing to win a civil war is evil and cruel, but it is a civil war, not a world war.
