“Should President Obama decide to order a military strike against Syria, his main order of business must be to kill Bashar Assad. Also, Bashar’s brother and principal henchman, Maher. Also, everyone else in the Assad family with a claim on political power. Also, all of the political symbols of the Assad family’s power, including all of their official or unofficial residences.”… “liberal” Bret Stephens at the Wall Street Journal
After Sec. Kerry’s morally bankrupt speech, all but accusing President Assad of using chemical weapons on his own people for no apparent reason other than conveniently giving Obama the regime change “red line” he so desperately craved, the entire Obama administration is getting in line behind the propaganda along with certain influential media outlets as if the case for war has been proven. No real facts needed. They have Youtube videos released by the PR teams working with our terrorists in Syria run by Robert “Salvador Option” Ford … and that’s all the “evidence” they need.
Haunting images of entire families dead in their beds. Verdict is clear: Assad has used CWs against civilians in violation of int’l norm.
Only regime has capacity to launch CW with rockets.
Enter the Yellow Journalism:
“New patients kept coming. One doctor from the town of Kafr Batna likened the scene to a horror movie, with cars bringing in entire families — fathers, mothers and children — all of them dead.” New York Times
“This time the use of chemicals was more brazen and the casualties were much greater, suggesting that Mr. Assad did not take Mr. Obama seriously” New York Times
“As the administration moved rapidly toward a decision, Secretary of State John F. Kerry said the use of chemical weapons in an attack Wednesday against opposition strongholds on the outskirts of Damascus is now “undeniable.”” Washington Post
The disinformation vortex has been initiated. Sec. Kerry’s baseless accusations have taken root just as the entirely fictitious Feb. 5th 2005 “slam dunk” from Colin Powell once did in the lead-up to the bombing of Iraq.
“The New York Times editorialized that Powell “was all the more convincing because he dispensed with apocalyptic invocations of a struggle of good and evil and focused on shaping a sober, factual case against Mr. Hussein’s regime.” The Washington Post was more war-crazed, headlining its editorial “Irrefutable” and declaring that after Powell’s U.N. presentation “it is hard to imagine how anyone could doubt that Iraq possesses weapons of mass destruction.”” Norman Soloman
Chemical weapons once again are the focus of the thinly veiled propaganda. Instead of holding up ridiculous vials of pretend weaponized chemical agents, all Sec. Kerry has to offer the civilized world are Youtube videos made by our propaganda outlets in Jordan. Videos made by Middle Eastern crisis actors hired for the day by our NGOs run by Robert “Salvador Option” Ford
Little in the way of actual evidence by any rational standard, but the administration yes men and the professional purveyors of yellow journalism get in line, right on cue, to propagate the propaganda in the swirling whirlwind of the globalist feeding frenzy as they sense more Syrian blood in the water in the very near future.
The technocrats, the constitution writers and the war-zone profiteers are packing their bags in anticipation of the plethora of opportunity waiting in Syria.
You would think that the American people would have learned something by now about this pattern of deceit, but you would be wrong.
Sadly, you would be wrong.
