Media Scoundrels Promote War

by Stephen Lendman

Syria is target one, then Iran. The road to Tehran runs through Damascus. Western-backed insurgents can't match Assad's security forces.

In 2011, Libyan killer gangs had air force support. Without NATO, they'd have been routed.

Expect stepped up intervention in Syria. All signs suggest it. The April 10 deadline came and went. Assad began pulling back. Insurgent violence continues. He's obligated to confront it. Responsible leaders can do no less. Their people depend on it. If governments won't protect them, who will?

Nonetheless, Assad's vilified for doing his job. Calls for greater intervention grow. Turkey wants a new Security Council resolution. Ankara says Annan's peace plan failed. 

Its designed intention was failure, not success. It's sham cover for Washington's longstanding regime change plans. Kofi Annan's imperial tool credentials got him appointed Arab League Syrian envoy. 

He keeps pointing fingers the wrong way. His demands on Assad are relentless. He insists he pull back and leave his people defenseless. His comments about insurgent violence are muted, disingenuous, and intended to solve nothing.
