When retired General Wesley Clark reported in March 2007 that, according to his source, the U.S was going to attack seven countries in five years[1], he was announcing to the world an acceleration of pre-planned, cataclysmic, criminal warfare.

We were warned in advance, but most of us paid little attention. Lies and crimes of imperial overlords are always well masked, and the post 911 wars are no exception. The Military Industrial Media Complex sold us these wars, and they will write the histories of these wars as well. Most of us will remain oblivious to reality, as long as we are the ones not being slaughtered. The unstated, criminal logic is that "The 'Other' always deserves what he gets".Canadians seemingly accept the notion that Syria deserves to be destroyed. It is an insane idea, but unconsciously at least, Canadians accept it.

Canadians' tacit consent for their government's criminal warmongering would be withdrawn if there was any truth in mainstream media war messaging, but the media conglomerates won't be dissolved overnight, the CBC will continue to vomit war propaganda, and an informed public won't emerge anytime soon. Consequently, Canadians still think that al Qaeda blew up the World Trade Center Buildings, they still think that the "War on Terror" is legitimate, and they still think that our military is fighting for freedom and democracy.

Syria and its allies know better. They are the ones destroying the terrorists. They are the ones waging the real war on terror, and they are the ones fighting for freedom and democracy.

Shame on us for thinking otherwise.

The following formula is used to "take out" countries. Each step was employed against non-belligerent Syria.

  • Illegal regime change announcements are publicly disclosed, coupled with evidence-free atrocity stories, and a demonization campaign against the "prey" country's leader. War is portrayed as a "humanitarian" undertaking.
  • Deadly sanctions are imposed which target civilians. The illegal sanctions amount to mass murder, impoverish the country, and create desperation.
  • Proxy mercenary terrorists are deployed, many flying different banners, and branded in different ways, all with a view to concealing the fact that they are all Western-supported, sectarian terrorists, including ISIS.
  • (The notion of "going after" your own terrorists is a perfect ruse, because it provides cover for destroying 7 countries in five years.)
  • Proxy terrorists destroy the country and perpetrate an overseas holocaust.
  • Coalition forces illegally provide air support for terrorists and bomb civilian infrastructure.
  • The "end game" is to erase the country and its identity.

Each of us can do something to make a positive difference. Sharing the truth about Syria disempowers the diabolical North American Military Industrial Media Complex that is enslaving us all. The following interview is a window into the Syria that our governments want to disappear.

All of the post-9/11 wars were sold to Western audiences through a sophisticated network of interlocking governing agencies that disseminate propaganda to both domestic and foreign audiences. But the dirty war on Syria is different. The degree of war propaganda levelled at Syria and contaminating humanity at this moment is likely unprecedented. I had studied and written about Syria for years, so I was not entirely surprised by what I saw.
