Syrian Insurgents Violate Ceasefire
Washington won't tolerate peace and stability.
by Stephen Lendman
It was too good to last. On day one, insurgents violated ceasefire calm. Blame Washington's dirty hands. It manipulates everything going on.
It won't tolerate peace and stability. Regime change plans need violence blamed on Assad. That's imperialism's ugly face. Behind it lurks a menace too threatening to ignore.
International, constitutional, and US statute laws are spurned. Independent regimes are toppled. War is policy. Throughout its history, America waged them at home and abroad. Countless millions died. Daily their numbers mount.
America's no democracy. It's a killing machine, a police state, a rogue hegemon, ravaging one country after another for unchallenged dominance.
It's boss, a street thug writ large. What it says goes. Violators are punished. Humanity's threatened.
Syria and Iran now face its wrath. Expect the worst. It's coming. Catastrophe may follow. NATO powers ignore the threat. On April 12, Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy discussed Iran and Syria.
Both accused Assad of violating ceasefire terms. Sarkozy and UK Prime Minster David Cameron called for "transition at the top" change. British Foreign Secretary William Hague said if violence erupts, "we want to return to the Security Council in a new attempt to obtain a resolution on Syria. We will intensify our support for the opposition."
Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel urge "more resolute" action. These and similar comments spell trouble.
On April 13, The New York Times headlined, "Cease-Fire Tested by Reports of Syria Clashes," saying:
"....some deadly clashes were reported." Pro-Western "activists" claim violence wracked areas are "under virtual martial law, with tank deployments, armed checkpoints and rooftop snipers."
Times writers never spare hyperbole. On issues mattering most, managed news substitutes for truth and full disclosure. Protection Syrians need is denounced. Imagine how out-of-control things would be without it. Current and former UN Secretaries-General replicate Timespeak.
Kofi Annan and Ban Ki-moon point fingers the wrong way. Assad's blamed for insurgent violence. From Geneva, Ban said "The onus is on the government of Syria to prove that their words will be matched by their deeds at this time."
