War Without Mercy in Syria
Washington controls Syria war.
by Stephen Lendman
If wars had labels, Syria's conflict would be called Made in America.
Paul Wolfowitz and other Project for the New American Century (PNAC) ideologues planned it years ago. They also targeted half a dozen or more other countries.
PNAC's Statement of Principles called for "shap(ing) a new century favorable to American principles and interests." Doing so it said requires:
- "increase(ing) defense spending significantly;"
- "challeng(ing) regimes hostile to our interests and values;" and
- "accept(ing) responsibility for American's unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles."
PNAC effectively declared war. Independent nations were targeted. Implementing policy required a "catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor."
