Washington Floats Chemical Weapons Charge As Pretext Tor Syria Buildup

The Obama administration and the corporate media have cited unspecified “intelligence” about the movement of chemical weapons to issue new threats of direct intervention in Syria, where Washington and its allies have been backing so-called “rebels” in a bid to topple the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton both made public statements Monday alleging a danger of Syria using chemical weapons and threatening US retaliation.

Citing unnamed senior officials who claim to have seen unspecified intelligence on Syrian chemical weapons, the New York Times, CNN and other media have joined forces with the Obama administration in promoting the chemical weapons justification for another US war of aggression.

What becomes clear in examining these reports, as well as the statements from the administration, is that the alleged threat from Syrian “weapons of mass destruction” is entirely concocted. Not a single piece of hard evidence is cited by any government official or any media source.

1. Perpetual war, we can't escape it.

 

What has any of this to do with us? What does it matter what Syria does as long as they don't attack us? And are we really going to buy this WMD "killed his own people" shit again?

It was unacceptable under Chimpy, it's doubly unacceptable under Obama because he's supposed to know better and be the "good" guy.
