Nobel Peace Laureate Maudie Maguire describes the Syrian tragedy in these words:
"In the last decade, the world has watched in horror such military intervention by U.S.A./U.K./NATO and Western forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and other countries. Now we have been promised by President Obama a military intervention on Syria ‘with teeth’,(in Iraq it was shock and awe). We have been promised that he will continue to support the armed opposition in Syrian (a majority of which are Jabhat al-Nusrah-Victory Front, and other such al Qaeda groups) and we have likewise been promised regime change in Syria. Such U.S. military action, which will probably involve trying to destroy the Syrian army, will leave the civilian population unprotected from the onslaught of armed opposition forces, and will embolden and strengthen the thousands of Islamic extremists from all over the world who have poured into Syria, supported financially and trained by some western governments, and whose intent is to remove the Syrian Government and kill all those who oppose them."
The plutocrats in Washington know that this criminal war is a hard sell, especially since the illegal invasion of Iraq continues to destabilize the mid-east. The invasion of Iraq — which by 2006 had already cost the lives of some 655,000 more people than would have died if there had been no invasion — is fresh in people’s minds. Shockingly, studies also show that the rates of infant mortality, cancer and leukaemia in the Iraqi city of Fallujah, which was bombed by the U.S. with depleted uranium ordnances, are even higher than those incurred after atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.
Consequently, the U..S and its allies likely enabled false-flag terrorism to justify an invasion for what is essentially an engineered, but extraordinarily murderous war, in which over 100,000 people have so far perished…
