US Imperial Wars Waged for Regime Change
America’s New World Order calls for establishing dominion over planet earth, its ruling authorities, resources and populations - by color revolutions or preemptive wars, assuring all nations are subservient to US interests.
Syria is in the eye of the storm. Hours ahead of Trump’s aggression, Secretary of State Tillerson said there’s “no role for (Assad) to govern the Syrian people.”
America intends “work(ing) collectively with our partners around the world through a political process that would lead to Assad leaving…(S)teps are underway,” he added with no further elaboration.
Following Trump’s aggression, he lied, saying Assad “carried out chemical attacks…on civilians, including women and children,” other CW attacks earlier.
He lied claiming “(w)e have a very high level of confidence that the attacks were carried out by aircraft under the direction of the Bashar al-Assad regime, and we also have very high confidence that the attacks involved the use of sarin nerve gas.”
He lied saying Syria failed to “surrender their chemical weapons under the supervision of the Russian government.”
He lied claiming Russia failed to fulfill its obligation as “guarantor that these weapons would no longer be present in Syria.”
He lied saying “either Russia has been complicit or Russia has been simply incompetent in its ability to deliver on its end of that agreement.”
He lied claiming Trump’s aggression was justified - never under international and constitutional law.
Homs governor Talal al-Barazi said US aggression killed 14 Syrians, including nine civilians - stressing the attack aimed to support anti-government “terrorist groups,” along with “weakening the fighting capacity of the” Syrian military.
“This aggression (on) Syria is not the first and is unlikely to be the last.” A US cruise missile struck Al-Hamrat village, killing four civilians, including a child, another seven wounded when another US missile hit homes in Al-Manzul.
Turkey’s Erdogan welcomed Trump’s aggression, urged more, said he wants a no-fly zone established. His aim is annexing northern Syrian and Iraqi territory, discussed in previous articles.
The neocon Foreign Policy Initiative
(FPI), formerly the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), said Friday’s US airstrike on Syria is “insufficient.”
“To make a difference, (it) must become part of a coherent and durable plan to restrain Assad and empower a moderate opposition” - a clear call for regime change by brute force.
Moscow-based National Defense magazine editor Igor Korotchenko believes Trump “unsealed Pandora’s box,” showing he intends being “a global policeman,” despite campaign rhetoric otherwise.
It’s unlikely Friday’s airstrike was the last. Expect more to come, risking direct confrontation with Russia.
Trump’s aggression came while hosting China’s President Xi Jinping, showing how America may act anywhere unilaterally.
Is escalated war on Syria coming? Bet on it. Is North Korea Trump’s next target? Unknown so far but possible given his aggressiveness.
America’s rage for war threatens humanity’s survival. Trump showed he’s as recklessly hawkish as his predecessors.
