Heated Anti-Assad Rhetoric Promotes War


Expect war. It's coming.

by Stephen Lendman

Increasingly war looks likely. Earlier Obama said "the Assad regime must come to an end."

In early June, White House press secretary Jay Carney said "bloody sectarian war will be diminished if Assad removes himself from power or is no longer in power."

Moscow signed a Security Council statement condemning the Houla massacre. Unlike Washington, Western partners, and regional allies, it points fingers both ways.
