Full-Scale War in Syria
Washington is ravaging another country to control it.
by Stephen Lendman
Former Russian Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov calls it "full-scale civil war." It's full-scale but not civil.
Syria's been invaded. Civil war implies two internal warring sides. That's very much not the case. Primakov said:
"Mercenaries and volunteers from other states are fighting (Assad) jointly with" violent internal forces. Most Syria opponents are nonviolent. They want peaceful conflict resolution. Washington has other ideas.
"President Obama has given a direct order to the CIA to support the Syrian opposition."
"That is flagrant interference in internal affairs of a sovereign state, which does not endanger the United States or anyone else."
"Saudi Arabia and Qatar are funding militants. Turkey is giving them active support." So are other regional countries.
