Washington Escalates War on Syria

by Stephen Lendman

Syria is Washington's war.

Ousting Assad was planned years ago. At issue is replacing him with a pro-Western puppet. After two years of conflict, he hangs on resiliently.

Two Press TV reports raise concerns. One headlined "US military has plans to bomb and send forces in Syria: Washington Post."

Plans include "aerial bombings to deploying troops to 'seize (chemical) weapons sites".' "

Washington "sent thousands of protective suits and more than 150 military personnel to help special forces teams"." They're in Jordan near Syria's border.
