He's active in current Washington plans to depose Assad. Like other US allies, his hands are bloodstained.
In her daily press briefing , State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland condoned the murder of Syrian officials. She justified her position, saying they "organize(d) Assad's military campaign...."
She tried having it both ways, adding "we don't condone violence of any kind." She ignored Washington's direct role in orchestrating it.
US rhetoric about supporting human rights and other democratic values rings hollow.
America is the world's worst human rights abuser. It spurns democracy. It's intolerant at home and abroad. It's hardline, belligerent and repressive.
Saying one thing and doing another is policy. At the same time, it audaciously points fingers at China.
On July 25, Bloomberg headlined "US Finds China's Human Rights Situation Is Deteriorating," saying:
According to Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor Michael Posner, conditions in China are worsening. We have human rights issues in America, he added. He left unsaid how US policy spurns them at home and abroad.
Do as I say not as I do is policy. So is practicing wrong over right. Interfering in the internal affairs of other countries blatantly violates international and constitutional law.
Doing it by direct or proxy belligerence adds crimes of war, against humanity and genocide. Justice Robert Jackson called aggressive war "the supreme international crime against peace."
Convicted Nazis were hanged. America repeatedly gets away with murder unaccountably.
A July 25 Washington Post article provided more evidence, saying:
Free Syrian Army fighters have safe havens in Turkey. In Antakya, they "stride through its narrow streets sunburned and sweaty from the battlefield, hoping to meet benefactors to provide them with money and arms."- Advertisement -
"Salafi Muslims, who have come to offer help from the countries of the Persian Gulf region, huddle over kebabs, their long beards and robes conspicuous in secularist Turkey."
Ankara officials are largely tight-lipped. Little is said about "rebel fighters" passing freely cross border to Syria and back. Military trucks ferry weapons into Syrian territory.
