There are so many things wrong with the way Syria will be handled. And sadly, we can be just about certain, in advance, that these will all happen.

There will be claims that there  is proof of Assad's use of Weapons of Mass Destruction-- in this case, Sarin. So far, there's lots of talk that poison gas has been used, but no solid statements that Assad was behind it. As Michael Collins writes, A rush to judgment is a rush to war. After all the lies we've been subjected to by Obama appointees, why should we even believe evidence they declassify that "proves" who used the gas. 

There will be a handful of members of congress calling for military action. There are always a group of pathetic fools who need to prove they have a penis by demanding violence. Then there are others who are simply doing what their lobbyists are asking them to do. As Paul Craig Roberts says in his article, Syria: Another Western War Crime In The Making, t here's no reason we have to go to war, have to get involved, even if poison gas HAS been used.

That cruise missiles will be used and they will kill innocent civilians. When all you have is a hammer, everything is a nail.  There's no doubt that cruise missiles will kill many innocent civilians. What the heck. What's that got to do with this program? Obama kills civilians with drones and secret death squads literally every day. The President and the pundits kissing his ass, talking about how terrible poison gas use is are distracting the easily distracted from America's mass murder of innocent civilians that people like Jeremy Scahill have documented so clearly.

Congress will fail to take ownership of its power to decide on going to war. The pathetic leadership failures in congress will wait for Obama to act, the ratify his actions. They don't have the guts to either start or block the war. 

The Mainstream Media Will Happily Beat the Drums for this new war. They won't challenge the president or congress. They won't ask tough questions. They won't go to members  of congress and grill them. They'll throw softball questions and fail the US again. Sadly the smaller media operations that do ask questions won't reach the bulk of the American people. 

Syria is a tragic mess. There are so many interests and forces supported by those diverse interests that it is very, very complicated, as Philip Kraske describes in his article,  Syria and sarin: such is politics.

The USA has no business going to Syria. Intervention will lead to deaths we and our allies cause and will not resolve the problems there. 

It is tragic. It will go on. But neither the US nor NATO should be getting involved.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
