Targeting Syria and Iran
Washington plans regime change in both countries by whatever means necessary, including war.
by Stephen Lendman
Slowed but not derailed by Russia and China vetoing its Security Council resolution, America's regime change/war plans remain on track.
In 1999, Washington circumvented the Security Council, UN Charter, and US Constitution to wage aggressive war against nonbelligerent Serbia/Kosovo.
According to former Nuremberg prosecutor Walter Rockler, it "constitute(d) the most brazen international aggression since the Nazis attacked Poland to prevent (nonexistent) 'Polish atrocities' against Germans."
"The United States has discarded pretensions to international legality and decency, and embarked on a course of raw imperialism run amok."
In 1999, Nobel laureate Harold Pinter called America's aggression "barbaric (and despicable), another blatant and brutal assertion of US power using NATO as its missile (to consolidate) American domination of Europe."
It replicated the same process against Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya, as well as indirectly against other MENA (Middle East/North African) countries. More aggression's planned against Syria and Iran, mostly likely in 2012.
