Naked Aggressors USA and France Want Freedom Fighting Russia and Syria Investigated for War Crimes

Naked Aggressors USA and France Want Freedom Fighting Russia and Syria Investigated for War Crimes

by Stephen Lendman

Let’s see if I’ve got this straight. In March 2011, Obama launched naked aggression on Syria. Hillary as secretary of state orchestrated war without mercy - flagrantly violating international law. Trump nailed her cold Sunday night, saying she belongs “in jail.”

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad neither attacked or threatened any other country, not earlier or now. He enjoys overwhelming popular support - reelect in June 2014 with an 89% majority, independent monitors calling the process open, free and fair.

Washington rejects Syria’s democratic process, polar opposite sham US elections - demanding regime change, pro-Western puppet governance installed, what naked aggression waged by Obama and Hillary at State is all about.

Syria is being systematically being raped and destroyed, one of history’s great crimes - using terrorist foot soldiers America created and supports, supplied with heavy weapons, aided by Pentagon air cover.

Most Americans know nothing about what’s going on. Public ignorance and indifference lets neocon lunatics influencing policy get away with mass murder time and again. 

Media scoundrels willfully and deceitfully lie about US-led genocidal wars against one nation after another - making them complicit in these highest of high crimes.

Yet, John Kerry arrogantly wants Russia and Syria investigated for war crimes - committed by America, its rogue state allies, and terrorist foot soldiers.

France made the same demand, wanting the International Criminal Court involved. Its regime is criminally culpable, involved naked aggression like Washington. 

Yet Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault shamelessly claims “France is committed as never before to saving the population of Aleppo” - code language for wanting valiant Syrian and Russian efforts to liberate the city entirely from terrorists it supports prevented.

Syria isn’t a Rome Statute signatory. The ICC has no jurisdiction over its affairs. Russia’s Security Council veto power will block any Western attempt to have its nation and Syria referred to the ICC for investigation of war crimes they didn’t commit.

So what’s likely ahead. Hillary’s ascension to power looks virtually certain. Trump outmatching her Sunday night changed nothing.

US governance under her leadership assures escalated war on Syria - likely provocations leading to East/West confrontation. The risk of explosive global war was never greater.

Anyone intending to vote for Hillary should understand they’re supporting possible humanity-destroying nuclear war.
