|Has there ever been a Middle Eastern war of such hypocrisy? A war of such cowardice and such mean morality, of such false rhetoric and such public humiliation? I'm not talking about the physical victims of the Syrian tragedy. I'm referring to the utter lies and mendacity of our masters and our own public opinion -- eastern as well as western -- in response to the slaughter. This is all about Iran and our desire to crush the Islamic Republic and its infernal nuclear plans -- if they exist -- and has nothing to do with human rights or the right to life or the death of Syrian babies.|
