They partnered with Washington, other NATO countries, and regional despots against Assad. They blame him for Western death squad crimes. Expect conflict to persist. Imperial strategy demands it. Willful killing and destruction won't end.

Syrians courageously resist. They want freedom, not imperial subjugation. They're willing to die for it.

Obama admitted what's well known. Washington aids insurgents covertly. CIA and US special forces are involved. Heavy weapons, funding, training and direction are provided. Secret "finding" authorization approved more.

Washington's war on Syria is lawless. So are other US wars. Trillions go for mass killing, destruction, conquest, colonization, and plunder. Homeland needs go begging. 

Imagine what's coming post-election. Expect greater wealth extraction, escalated repression, and new war theaters without end.

America's worst of all possible worlds sinks lower. Depravity defines it. Obama's a stealth neocon faking people-friendly credentials. Paul Craig Roberts calls hypocrisy Washington's hallmark. Global war crimes are committed in pursuit of peace.

Humanitarian intervention is sham cover for imperial ravaging. The late Gore Vidal addressed this and more long ago. He warned how it harms humanity. He called America decadent. It's not worth preserving, he said. 

He called Cuba a place of hope. He said Americans haven't a clue about what they lost. He called US-style democracy fraudulent by design. It's illegitimate without choice on the ballot. 

He said America is "rotting away at a funereal pace." He expected eventual military dictatorship. The late Chalmers Johnson predicted the same thing. He quoted Pogo saying, "We have met the enemy and he is us."

He expected eventual worst of times. He and Vidal agreed. America is plagued by the same dynamic that doomed past empires. Unwillingness to change assures demise. 

It's not a matter of if, but when. At issue is will humanity perish with it? The possibility is terrifyingly real. Money power runs America. Policies it wants, it gets.

A nation without enemies remains permanently at war. A secret, unaccountable global gulag holds countless non-believers. Oppression targets anyone who resists. Wealth extraction impoverishes millions. Mind manipulation keeps people dumbed down.

Johnson said these policies produce military dictatorship or its civilian equivalent. America's republic always was more myth than real. Pretense ended long ago. It died and doesn't exist. 

Democracy is a quaint artifact. Slogans and other rhetoric alone remain. Democrats are as neocon as Republicans. Most people haven't a clue. Others who understand don't act.

America gets away with murder with ease. Lynne Stewart says "Agitate! Agitate! Agitate!" Nothing else works and won't now. It's needed more than ever. "It's the system, stupid," says Immanuel Wallerstein. Change it or it'll consume us.
