Syria and the dirty wars

Moving from the lies, which are spouted out by the mainstream drivel, it might be that solace of sorts is sought in the realms of a blogosphere that tends to back up, even if not always substantiate, “ego’s opinions. It is, however, the from time to time perusing of relatively well-researched books which  tends not only to emphasize the hypocrisy, down right lies, chutzpah and criminal energy of our so-called leaders, but also highlights the pure idiocy of those that might actually believe their nonsense.

Therefore, it could be useful for us to avoid the chemical gas attack, which Washington is still hoping to use as the pretext for attacking Syria, even if, we could mention that not only is there no evidence to support any claim that it was Assad that launched those attacks. Indeed, it is not even worthwhile discussing John Kerry’s absurd assertion that the Syrian opposition is in the process becoming increasingly moderate and attached to some, “democratic process and to an all-inclusive, minority-protecting constitution.”, even if Aron Lund, the Swedish writer and researcher, provides a very different view of what and who actually constitute the Syrian opposition.  Why discuss either of those issues when John and his boss in the White House will just spout more gobbledygook and have it “substantiated” by their manufacturers of consent?

However, it might be worthwhile to delve into the background in some detail and on page 170 of Jeremy Scahill’s ‘Dirty Wars’ it can be discovered that Syria was, as early as 2004, one of some fifteen to twenty countries where the “accountable only to the president” Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) was fighting Uncle Sam’s dirty wars. Now, it will be argued that they were there to fight al Qaeda, but the response should neither be that al Qaeda was an irrelevance in Syria in 2004, nor should it be, as Lund points out, that Washington now, despite what Kerry says to the contrary, is supporting Islamic extremists and al Qaeda affiliated groups.

No, the hypocritical liars will just come back with their puerile pathetic poppycock. The question we should be asking ourselves, apart from pointing out that international law was once again being broken by the United States, is quite simply; what were these people doing in Syria in 2004? It is not really a difficult question to answer and the answer will help us to understand why they are sharpening their claws and getting ready to attack now.

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.
