Obama Plans War on Syria
War looms closer. Expect it.
by Stephen Lendman
Guilty of war crimes multiple times over, Obama plans more death, destruction, conquest, colonization, resource control, exploitation, and dominance.
Syria is target one, then Iran, then other nations. It follows Washington's longstanding pattern of waging war on humanity.
Iran's peaceful nuclear program is pretext for post-November war. Syria's Houla massacre draws it closer against Assad.
Since early last year, thousands of Syrian civilians and security forces died. Daily body counts mount. Western-enlisted insurgents bear most responsibility. Assad is wrongfully blamed for their crimes.
Houla represents the largest incident so far. At least 109 deaths were reported. Most were killed at point blank range.
According to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) spokesman Rupert Colville , over 80% "were summarily executed in two separate incidents."
"What is very clear is that this was an absolutely abominable event that happened in Houla and at least a substantial part of it was summary executions of civilians, including women and children."
Entire families "were shot (in cold blood) in their houses," or murdered other ways.
Western-enlisted death squad assassins, not Assad, bear full responsibility. Spurious accusations blamed pro-Assad Alawites.
Claims about tanks and artillery "pounding" Houla were exaggerated. Bodies found were intact. Bullet, stab, and other wounds reflect close-range killing. Insurgents went house to house. Victims had no place to hide.
Nonetheless, Washington, Britain, France, and rogue partners reacted as expected.
Ambassadors were expelled. Syria hasn't had one in Washington since last year. Its charge d'affaires got 72 hours to leave. A White House statement condemned Assad for killer gang crimes he tried to stop, saying:
"These acts serve as a vile testament to an illegitimate regime that responds to peaceful political protest with unspeakable and inhuman brutality."
