Advancing the Ball for War on Syria


Obama wants war on Syria. Expect it.

What's ongoing bears disturbing similarities to events preceding NATO's 1999 Yugoslavia aggression.

In the 1990s, NATO lawlessly intervened for the first time outside territories of its member countries. No nation or alliance may attack another except in self-defense. 

Doing so requires Security Council authorization. Washington considers that notion quaint. Rule of law provisions don't matter. Advancing America's imperium alone guides official policy.

From August 30 - September 20, 1995, NATO conducted Operation Deliberate Force. Naked aggression targeted the Serb Republic. Hundreds of aircraft flew thousands of sorties. It preceded what followed.

From March 24 - June 19, 1999, Operation Allied Force was unprecedented in ferocity. For 78 days, devastating bombing ravaged Yugoslavia. Around 600 aircraft flew about 3,000 sorties.
