Syria; at least they should have the “decency” to tell us why they are doing, what they are doing

John Kerry has contended that there is  “clear and compelling” evidence that the regime in Damascus was responsible for the recent chemical attack. The United States, bereft of Britain its staunchest ally, on the verge of attacking Syria.

There is, of course, no compelling evidence, or if there is any, it is evidence that the United States, on behalf of what it decides to be the international community and in the best interests of humanity, is on the verge of once again breaking international law.

Firstly, while there is still much speculation regarding the source of the chemical attack, it might be worth considering William Bowles  when after he sums up what we do know when he says that the “two missiles” were fried from one are under ‘rebel’ control into another area which was rebel controlled, namely, a suburb of Damascus called East Ghouta. The consequences of those attacks on the people of that suburb are well documented.

These are the facts and if Bowles contention these were Israeli-US false flag operations fails to convince, it is at least better substantiated than the nonsense which has been spouted out by Kerry.

Moreover, while it is easy to simply dismiss Washington’s hypocrisy and its self-appointed sanctimonious role as an arbitrator for humanity and the international community, we should be all too aware of the realpolitik which is behind those actions. Therefore, shouldn’t these criminals, at least, have the decency to tell us straight out what they are doing. After all, it really has become more than a trifle obvious, hasn’t 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.
