AIPAC Lobbies for War on Syria

 

AIPAC Lobbies for War on Syria

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Previous articles discussed the Israeli Lobby's rage for war on Syria. AIPAC and 50 other Zionist organizations endorse it. 

 

They threaten world peace. They want Israeli interests served. Ravaging and destroying Syria does so. Much greater stakes are involved. 

 

Stop AIPAC!

 

Stop AIPAC!

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

AIPAC's a weapon of mass destruction. It fronts for Israel's worst crimes. It promotes war. It threatens world peace. 

 

It menaces humanity's survival. It operates extrajudicially. It's an unregistered foreign agent.

 

Obama Plans Shock and Awe Madness on Syria

Overwhelming support for peaceful conflict resolution at home and abroad opposes him. It doesn't matter. He plans devastating strikes on Syria.

 

He ordered an expanded hit list. He wants more targets struck. US and French warplanes will supplement cruise missiles. Reports suggest long range B-2 and B-52 bombing. 

 

Obama Making More Enemies Than Friends

 

Obama Making More Enemies Than Friends

US interventionism is increasingly unpopular. Obama hoped G20 leaders would back his Syrian attack plan. He learned otherwise. He met stiff opposition.

 

Whither Obama?

 

Whither Obama?

 

by Stephen Lendman 

 

A previous article asked if Syria would be Obama's undoing. Would it be his Waterloo. His legacy's already pockmarked. His record exceeds the worst of all his predecessors.

 

Will Syria cause his fall from grace? Will it bring him down? Will it show loyal supporters they backed the wrong man? Will it fully expose his lawless agenda?

Obama intends lawless aggression on Syria. He does so based on lies. At the same time, he ignores the worst of Israeli crimes.

 

They occur daily during sham peace talks. In late August, Israeli forces killed three Palestinians. They wounded 18 others. Five children were hurt.

 

Obama Plans One of History's Great Crimes

 

Obama Plans One of History's Great Crimes

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

US history is ugly. It's disturbing. It's ruthless. It's deplorable. No nation ever matched it. None came close.

 

Crimes of war, against humanity and genocide define it. Terror bombing is official US policy. Permanent wars cause mass killing and destruction.

 

Global Opposition to Attacking Syria

 

Global Opposition to Attacking Syria

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

It's growing. Millions oppose more war. They're fed up. They're not silent. They're speaking out. They're making their feelings known. More on that below.

 

Imagine claiming war on humanity's being waged for peace. Imagine mass slaughter called humanitarian intervention. 

 

Spurious Anti-Iranian Accusations

 

Spurious Anti-Iranian Accusations

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Longstanding US plans call for regime change. America wants Iranian sovereignty destroyed. It wants pro-Western vassal governance replacing it.

 

Spurious accusations repeat. They're pretexts for lawless intervention. New ones allege Iran plans attacking US regional interests. Washington claims it's in response to Obama intervening against Syria.

Candidate Obama pledged hope, peace and change. President Obama delivered duplicity, war and betrayal. 

 

It didn't surprise. His Senate voting record warned. It was way right-of-center. It showed where he stands. His tenure as president does writ large.

 

Obama's Planned Lawless Aggression on Syria Based on Lies, Damn Lies and Big Lies

Permanent war is official US policy. Throughout his tenure, Obama waged multiple direct and proxy wars. 

 

He's heading for direct intervention against Syria. He's doing it lawlessly. He's doing it based on lies, damn lies and Big Lies.

Russia on Syria: Alternative to Peace is Bloody Chaos

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov addressed Obama's intended lawless aggression. He did so forthrightly. He did it because it matters.

 

Russia strongly opposes Washington's regime change plans. It won't stay silent and watch. Interfax reported Lavrov's comments.

It did so formally. It didn't surprise. It has more than Syria in mind. A previous article explained.

 

The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations wants war. AIPAC is its best known member.

 

Anti-Syrian Media Bias

 

Anti-Syrian Media Bias

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Journalistic ethics are clear and unequivocal. They're consistently violated. According to the Society of Professional Journalists' Code of Ethics:

 

"....public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy."

Impeach Obama Now!

 

Impeach Obama Now!

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

A previous article called impeaching him a national imperative. Do it now. Do it before it's too late. 

 

He's already guilty of multiple high crimes of war, against humanity and genocide.

 

He plans much more ahead. He intends lawless aggression against Syria. He risks regional war. He's menacing humanity. 

Britain, France, Germany and Israel Lie for Obama

 

Britain, France, Germany and Israel Lie for Obama

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Obama rages for more war. He intends more mass killing and destruction. Attacking Syria is virtually certain. It's just a matter of when. 

 

It's likely shortly after Congress reconvenes on September 9. So-called token strikes conceal planned shock and awe.

He's done it since day one in office. It rages nonstop. War on Afghanistan could continue for another decade or longer. 

 

Iraq and Libya are out-of control cauldrons of violence. Syria's the current eye of the storm. Obama intends escalating what's ongoing. Iran's turn awaits.

 

Why Was Syria Attacked?

 

Why Was Syria Attacked?

On April 6, 2009, Seymour Hersh headlined "Syria Calling," saying:

 

When Israel's December 2008/January 2009 Cast Lead war on Gaza ended, so did "promising peace talks between Israel and Syria."

 

Obama's War on Syria Imminent

 

Obama's War on Syria Imminent

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

He decided to attack. He'll do so whether on not Congress approves. He'll ignore international law. He believes he has a divine right to do what he wants.

 

He's an out-of-control rogue menace. He's a war criminal multiple times over. He's waging war on humanity. He's doing so based on lies. He wants another imperial trophy.

On September 2, London's Daily Mail headlined " 'I didn't join the Navy to fight for al Qaeda in a Syrian civil war': Picture of serviceman goes viral... but is it real?"

On August 29, the Washington Post headlined "US spy network's successes, failures and objectives detailed in 'black budget' summary," saying:

 

Israeli Lobby Targets Syria and Iran

 

Israeli Lobby Targets Syria and Iran

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Waging war on Syria is prelude to targeting Iran. The road to Tehran runs through Damascus. 

 

It's the Lobby's prime target. It's Israel's. It's America's. First things first. War on Syria rages. Obama plans direct US intervention.

On Saturday, he replicated John Kerry's Colin Powell moment. He lied like he always does. 

 

His war plans were delayed. They're not deterred. They're not halted. Obama plans aggressive war on Syria. He does so with or without Security Council and/or congressional approval.

 

US State Terror Targets Syria

 

US State Terror Targets Syria

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Sunday was John Kerry's third Colin Powell moment. Lies beget more of them. Kerry's a serial liar. He's a malicious one.

 

He appeared on five Sunday talk shows. He wrongfully blamed Assad for August 21's Ghouta attack. He said Syria used sarin nerve gas.

 

Lies Damn Lies and John Kerry Lies

 

Lies, Damn Lies and John Kerry Lies

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Once wasn't enough for Kerry. He came. He saw. He lied. He did  twice. Friday was his second Colin Powell moment. It's prelude to lawless aggression.

 

Lies assure more lies. They used to launch wars. All wars are based on lies. Sunshine is the best disinfectant. Truth is the ally of peace. It's the enemy of war. 

 

Putin Speaks Out on Syria

 

Putin Speaks Out on Syria

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Russia emphatically opposes war on Syria. Throughout months of conflict, it's gone all out to prevent further escalation.

 

With China, it vetoed three Security Council resolutions to do so. Putin and Obama represent opposing doctrines.

 

Duplicitous Anti-Syrian Editorials

 

Duplicitous Anti-Syrian Editorials

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Media scoundrels march in lockstep. When America goes to war or plans one, they're supportive right or wrong.

 

Throughout months of conflict, they pilloried Assad. They did so unjustifiably. They turned truth on its head. They blame him for insurgent crimes. They do it repeatedly.

 

Obama Invented Pretext for Lawless Aggression

 

Obama Invented Pretext for Lawless Aggression

 

By Stephen Lendman

 

When US enemies don't exist, they're invented. When rule of law principles are clear and unequivocal, they're twisted to fit US policy.

 

On August 30, White House Special Assistant to the President/Principal Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest said:

 

Obama's America: Gangsterism Writ Large

 

Obama's America: Gangsterism Writ Large

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Obama's America is an out-of-control rogue state. It's nuclear armed and dangerous. It maintains large stockpiles of hugely toxic chemical and biological weapons. 

 

They're used freely in all US wars. Washington threatens world peace. It risks global war. It's no land of the free and home of the brave. It's not beautiful.
