Washington's Total War on Syria


- Advertisement -

Washington planned war on Syria years ago.

by Stephen Lendman

Syria attacked no one. It threatens no one. It's victimized by naked Western aggression. Proxy death squads are used. They're armed, funded, trained, and directed by regional and Western states.

Washington's scorched earth mass killing and destruction constitutes total war. It's US policy in all conflicts. Syrians struggle to survive. They're proud, partisan, and not about to roll over for America.

High stakes define the conflict. At issue is freedom or neoserfdom slavery. Meanwhile, Washington's turning another regional country into charnel house hell. At the same time, it has other targets in mind.

So far Syrian strategy failed. Stepped up violence is certain. More sanctions are planned. Russia and China vetoed Security Council authorization. On August 2, the General Assembly votes.

Saudi Arabia openly supports mass Syrian killing and destruction. It's supplying heavy weapons and funding. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon ignores it.

At the same time, Saudi officials drafted a resolution condemning Security Council inaction. It calls for illegal sanctions. It points fingers the wrong way. It blames Assad for Saudi crimes and death squads it supports.

Moscow and Beijing stand firmly opposed. On July 28, Itar Tass headlined "Additional sanctions against Syria violate sovereignty of that country," saying:

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said:

"We would like to confirm our principle and steady position of unacceptable unilateral sanctions against Syria."

"We consider their implementation as actions, violating sovereignty of the country, the principle of non-interference in home affairs, as well as the prerogative of the UN Security Council in supporting international peace and security."

"We are not intending to participate in an activities in pursuance of decisions of the European Union aimed against Syria, and we shall not consider applications or agree to examine ships carrying the Russian flag, or use of any limiting measures to them."
