Syria's Assad Blasts US Imperial Policies

Syria’s Assad Blasts US Imperial Policies

by Stephen Lendman

America’s imperial agenda threatens world peace, waging forever wars in multiple theaters, setting nations ablaze, risking the world’s third global war with weapons of mass destruction.

The US Peace Council is an "anti-imperialist organization committed to peace, economic and social justice and to international solidarity with the peoples of the world.”

In late April, it denounced Obama’s escalation of war on Syria, wanting a client state installed serving US interests, its sovereign independent government replaced.

On Thursday, a PC delegation met with Assad in Damascus, its head Henry Lowendorf, saying “(w)e had the honor to meet President al-Assad.” 

“He was straightforward and wanted us to be so. We related to him what we saw and he provided rational, accurate and wise answers for our questions.”

“He impressed us with his insight not only about the situation in Syria but also about world powers.”

He’s a highly respected leader, popularly supported, democratically elected, wanting Syrian sovereignty and integrity protected and preserved - why Washington targets him for elimination.

He justifiably said “US policies are at a collision course with the interests of the US citizens and the peoples of the world.”

“The role of the United States as a superpower should otherwise be positive and based on fostering knowledge, science and technology instead of chaos and destruction.”

Its policies cost over half a million Syrian lives, millions more regionally, terrorist foot soldiers recruited from scores of countries worldwide doing America’s bidding.

It wants war, not peace, dominance, not cooperative relations with all countries, mass slaughter and destruction, not equity and justice for all.

Another Clinton crime family presidency may set the whole world ablaze.
