When at first you don’t succeed try, try again. Since the initial false flag in Syria could not rally enough support, it was apparently necessary to have a larger death toll to justify American involvement. I don’t know whether to laugh at the hubris required for such an in your face sales job, or cry because people actually believe our govt after Iraq and all the lies since. James Corbett provides some color on the events.
You can now fully expect that McCain and Lindsay Graham will be rolled out on the Sunday shows to recommend bombing the “barbaric” al-Assad regime into the dark ages for gassing his own people (where have I heard that before?). Whether you believe this was another false flag or not, please explain why we have any business at all inserting ourselves into this conflict. Those that understand that Syria and Ukraine are all about protecting our energy interest, might be compelled to ask, why are we not developing our own sources of energy? You might also want to ask yourself, how would you keep the military industrial complex in the black?
A better question might be, where in the Constitution does it give the Nobel-Peace-Prize-winning President the right to take us to war without a formal declaration from Congress?
