Déjà vu and “humanitarian intervention” in Syria

Now, when we think of Iraq, Kosovo, Libya, and now Syria, it really is a déjà vu, isn’t it? The Guardian’ is reporting that the UN has come to an agreement with Damascus that will allow its team of experts, which is already in Syria, to “visit the site of last week’s alleged chemical weapons attack” as early as tomorrow, but that the Americans are already saying any inspection, some five days after the attack, has no credibility, because it is too late. Oh, right they should have been there the following day!

Yes, déjà vu and once again the have their pretext by hook or by crook. No need for a UN mandate and we are already being told that it will be easy for Washington to put together a NATO  “coalition of the willing should the “hype” man, Obama, rally his forces in support of military action and should you have any doubt as  what the precedence for the actual mandate might be. Well, what about a “humanitarian intervention”?

However, for those of you who might believe that gobbledygook, it would do no harm to have a look at Steve Lendman’s article Imminent US War on Syria” and any, even superficial reading of it must lead to the conclusion that the United States, or rather its military-industrial establishment, does indeed do “what it pleases” and to hell with international law. Isn’t it just a little bit strange that we let them get away with it?

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
