Then – another article saying that our government is removing all non-essential government workers and suggesting that US civilians leave Lebanon before any US strikes on Syria.

So – any strike on Syria evidently would unleash terrorist attacks in other countries and possibly in our own on US citizens!

This is what is called a Proxy War, where the real war is among the various backers of the conflicts. The people that gain the most are those that profit from arms sales. These Plutocrats exist in the United States, Russia and other countries such as our “allies”, the Saudis and Pakistanis.

The Sunnis and Shi’ites will be at each others throats until their educational level increases, probably taking several generations. Meanwhile, the barbarism of Islam continues. Peaceful religion?! Ha!

It is not a war between two parties fighting for a stated goal. It is a symptom of political, Social, and religious changes in the region and MANY parties are involved all trying to influence the “war”. Few care about a specific outcome, just swaying things to improve their positions.

What this writer means by the term “the West” is the cluster of pro-Israeli countries.

Israel has not had significant support in Europe for over a decade. And all this business about Syria is about a failure of Israel and its dependents in control of the US Government to rally other countries to the Zionist cause. This is hardly disarray. In fact, only the USA is significantly out of step with the “West”. It is a de facto puppet of Tel Aviv.

This is unlikely to change in Israel’s favor any time soon, and in fact is in tilting toward increasing isolation of the US Government from Western Europe. But the only way to rationally think about Syria and have any clarity is through the eyes of Israel, which sees all of those Arabs and Kurds as enemies. Attack only makes sense for Israel, and so it will happen with US forces only, as ordered.

The American public is angry from lies piled on lies, wasted American resources and politicians with other agendas such as supporting their rich American arms manufacturing friends. The War Powers Act clearly delineates that the President has free-reign (for a limited time) to attack when the United States is in eminent danger of attack. Where is the eminent danger? The only danger that is guaranteed is to attack and dare them to attack us back. Now, why would they do that?

Isolationist? Since when is it the job for the United States to regulate all the wars around the globe, especially when the United Nations will not?

A week ago, the anonymous “polls” indicated that 90% of the American public was opposed to military action in Syria. Now, in the past three days, these anonymous “polls” have that figure dropping to 80%, then 70%, then 60%, then 50%. Why is the media lying and so intent on fanning the flames of American involvement in conflicts that are in no way in the interest of the United States (other than saving face for ridiculous statements and increased profits for the American arms manufacturers)?
