Washington's Aleppo Strategy Failed
Washington continues to wage naked aggression on Syria.
by Stephen Lendman
Since WW II, America lost every war it waged. Its only success was destroying nations and murdering millions.
Imagine that legacy for current and future historians to address. Imagine how few will do it accurately and honorably.
Imagine a nation glorifying wars in the name of peace. Historians Charles Beard and Gore Vidal called them "perpetual war(s) for perpetual peace."
Historian Harry Elmer Barnes addressed the same issue, saying:
"If trends continue....we shall soon reach this point of no return, and can only anticipate interminable wars, disguised as noble gestures for peace."
"Such an era could only culminate in a third world war which might well, as Arnold J. Toynbee has suggested, leave only the pygmies in remote jungles, or even the apes and ants, to carry on 'the cultural traditions' of mankind."
