The Lies Change but the Murder Never Stops

Syria and Imperialist Deceit
by Sequoyah De Souza Vigneswaren / December 2nd, 2015

“Bombing for peace is like fucking for virginity,” as the old phrase goes.

Once again our imperial elitists are “making the case” to utilize instruments of death and destruction against a country thousands of miles away that has not attacked us. In order, we are told, to bring about more peace and less death.

Let us ponder that logic once more. Western powers — who are already steeped in historical and contemporary blood-letting of monstrous magnitude — are once again trying to justify their latest illegal imperial venture in noble terms: of military necessity and moral superiority.

And that we — who have no right to interfere in another country — will bring less murder and destruction through engaging in more murder and destruction.

Even though a year of such apparent bombing in Iraq and Syria has not only not brought peace, it has made the situation worse, and had no impact on ISIS. In fact they now have more weapons, more money and more territory.

We ought to reflect on that. Because it gives us an indication as to the real motives rather than the professed motives. That perhaps our goal is not to attack ISIS but is to illegally remove Assad.


ummmmm .......... perhaps??? I don't know why some think so many in the world are like small toddlers who are waiting for a new ending from the same storybook every night.
