Nothing Civil about Washington's War on Syria
Syria conflict is no revolution. It's naked Western aggression against an independent state.
by Stephen Lendman
Insurgents are Washington proxies. Key NATO partners, rogue Arab League states, and Israel are very much involved.
The same dirty game repeats. Independent states are targeted for regime change. All options are used. They include full-scale war, mass killing, and turning nations into charnel houses on the pretext of liberating them.
American-style freedom is slavery. Mainstream discourse doesn't explain. It repeats long ago discredited notions about humanitarian intervention and responsibility to protect (R2P). Protracted violence and bloodshed hardly reflect it.
Washington-led Western generated violence ravages Syria. On Sunday, The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) declared ongoing conflict a civil war.
It's not civil when mostly imported proxies are used. Most Syrians deplore violence and oppose internal and external groups committing it.
