Obama Planning More War
Obama itches for more war.

America's favorite pastime isn't baseball. It's war, permanent imperial wars that won't end in our lifetime Dick Cheney said earlier.
America is addicted to war. One nation after another is ravaged and plundered. Unchallenged global dominance is sought.
Who's next? Syria? Iran? Washington's long knives target both countries.
On June 29, AP headlined "US, Russia fail to reach agreement on Syria, jeopardizing Annan plan to end crisis," saying:
Before heading for Geneva, Hillary Clinton and Sergey Lavrov met in St. Petersburg. Differences between them weren't resolved.
Washington demands regime change. Moscow wants Syrians to decide who'll lead them. Lavrov said:
We "agreed to look for an agreement that will bring us closer based on a clear understanding of what's written in the Annan plan that (all) sides in Syria need an incentive for a national dialogue."
"But it's only up to the Syrians to make agreements on what the Syrian state will be like, who will hold (government) jobs and positions."
Putting a brave face on intractable differences, Lavrov hoped Geneva discussions would move closer to resolving Syria's conflict peacefully. "But I am not saying that we will agree on every dot."
Kofi Annan proposed unity government. Government and opposition members would be included. Elements seeking belligerent change would be excluded.
Russia and other major powers expressed support. Washington insists Assad must go. He told Iran's IRIB channel 4:
"We, in Syria, do not accept any model that is not Syrian and national, regardless of whether it was imposed by superpowers or proposed by friendly countries."
