Washington's War of Aggression on Syria
Long planned naked aggression on Syria.
by Stephen Lendman
Israel partners with Washington's wars. It's been largely covertly involved against Syria. It's now blatantly overt.
Since last weekend, Israeli warplanes violated Syrian airspace multiple times. They overflew the Beka Valley. They attacked a weapons storage facility. They struck a convoy allegedly en route to Lebanon.
On Wednesday, they bombed a scientific research center near Damascus. These actions and similar ones are naked acts of aggression. A follow-up article will discuss this further.
Washington planned war on Syria years ago. Previous articles discussed General Wesley Clark's " Winning Modern Wars ."
Post-9/11, Pentagon sources told him plans targeted Iraq, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Iran and Syria for regime change. Earlier they were finalized against Afghanistan.
"And what about the real sources of terrorists - US allies in the region like Egypt, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia?"
"Wasn't it repressive policies of the first, and the corruption and poverty of the second, that were generating many of the angry young men who became terrorists?"
"And what of the radical ideology and direct funding spewing from Saudi Arabia?"
"It seemed that we were being taken into a strategy more likely to make us the enemy - encouraging what could look like a 'clash of civilizations' - not a good strategy for winning the war on terror."
For nearly two years, Syria's been on the boil. Conflict shows no signs of ending. Washington's dirty hands prevent it.
The latest Aleppo massacre reflects earlier ones. Western-recruited death squads bear full responsibility.
