Democrats pretend that the bloodshed in Syria is Donald Trump's legacy, but Black Alliance for Peace national organizer Ajamu Baraka says, "We have to remind people of the role that the Obama administration played in engaging in regime change war in Syria." Baraka is also an editor and columnist for Black Agenda Report, and will speak at BAR's 13th anniversary celebration at the People's Forum in New York City, October 26th.

I wish every US citizen with a brain listens to this brief interview. Of course, that won't happen.

In some ways, I can't blame our people for amnesia. There has been so much craziness going on everywhere in the world, as well as, within our country, that most people trying to feed their families simply lose track.

There is one easy take-away from this interview, though.

And that is that there is barely a hair's breadth of difference between the two dominant political parties. Either way, our country's leadership is psychopathic and blood thirsty; causing more harm to the world than any other nation. We may be in the death throes now, and if I didn't care so deeply, I might be inclined to say bring it on.

Those with fond memories of Obama need to think it through. Remember his red line in the sand? Remember 'Assad has to go'? Look at what it has wrought.

They ALL need to go.

The Russians offered a negotiated settlement in 2012. Obama/Clinton weren't interested because they thought their war would be a cakewalk. The US public never learns that it is easier to start a war than finish it.
