Heated Anti-Assad Rhetoric


Obama wants war. Expect it.

by Stephen Lendman

Washington's Syrian regime change plans are longstanding. All independent governments are targeted. 

At issue isn't whether they're despotic, democratic, or anything in between. It's about establishing client states subservient to Western interests. That matters most.

Heated rhetoric supports it. Targeted leaders are vilified. Since early last year, Western-generated violence and rhetorical assaults targeted Assad. 

Like lyrics from the old Sinatra favorite, they go together like love and marriage. You can't one without the other.

Daily reports highlight more insurgent violence. On June 28, Reuters headlined "Blast hits Damascus as Turkey sends troops to border," saying:

Insurgents "attacked Syria's main court in central Damascus on Thursday...."

A loud explosion was heard. A cloud of black smoke rose. State television accurately called it a terrorist attack. It followed escalated Damascus incidents. 

It came a day after the privately owned Al-Ikhbariaya television station was targeted. Seven deaths resulted. It's facilities sustained heavy damage.

SANA state media reported "three injuries and material damage to 20 cars...." The parking area of the Justice Palace "in the Center of Damascus at al-Marjeh area" was struck.

Reuters said:

"Dozens of wrecked and burning cars were strewn over a car park used by lawyers and judges."

Other reports said Turkey deployed missile batteries, rocket launchers, and anti-aircraft weapons close to Syria's border. About 30 military trucks arrived in the coastal town of Iskenderun.
