Washington's Plan B for Syria
Washington's dirty hands are all over the Syrian conflict. It's NOT a revolution. It's naked aggression using death squad proxies.
by Stephen Lendman
Replacing independent governments with pro-Western puppets is official US policy. So is war on Islam.
After Soviet Russia dissolved, Muslims replaced communists as public enemy number one. Since the 1990s, millions were ruthlessly killed. Many more die daily. Dozens succumb every day in Syria. US-sponsored death squads murder them.
On July 20 or 21st, Ramadan began. It continues for 30 days until August 18. It's a time for prayer, fasting, reflection, spiritual purification, self-sacrifice, charity, and forgiveness.
On July 20, Obama hypocritically "extend(ed) warmest wishes to" American and global Muslims. He wished them a "blessed month." He did it despite official US policy to murder them. It doesn't stop in deference to Ramadan, Christmas, or any other time of year.
He contemptuously expressed support for their determination to achieve "democracy," "equality," "justice," and "universal rights." He said his administration stands forthrightly with them.
