Preemptive Strike on Syria Looms
Expect US-led war on Syria.
by Stephen Lendman
Washington planned war on Syria years ago. Only its timing and methodology remained to be decided.
US administrations want all independent governments replaced by pro-Western puppet regimes. War is the bottom line option when other methods fail.
Washington's proxy war on Syria raged since winter 2011. Full-scale intervention looms. Pretexts are easy to invent when none exist.
Fabricating a chemical weapons threat appears the option of choice. Iraq WMD 2.0 hype headlined enough convinces most people of a nonexistent danger.
Full-scale war could erupt anytime. Washington positioned a powerful fighting force off Syria's coast. British and French warships joined it. Offensive Patriot missiles are being placed in Turkey on Syria's border.
