THE DAY AFTER DAMASCUS FALLS | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

THE DAY AFTER DAMASCUS FALLS

The Saudi-Israeli alliance has gone on the offensive, ramping up a “regime change” war in Syria and, in effect, promoting a military victory for Al-Qaeda or its spinoff, the Islamic State. But the consequences of that victory could toll the final bell for the American Republic, writes Robert Parry.

If Syrian President Bashar al-Assad meets the same fate as Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi or Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, much of Official Washington would rush out to some chic watering hole to celebrate – one more “bad guy” down, one more “regime change” notch on the belt. But the day after Damascus falls could mark the beginning of the end for the American Republic.

As Syria would descend into even bloodier chaos – with an Al-Qaeda affiliate or its more violent spin-off, the Islamic State, the only real powers left – the first instinct of American politicians and pundits would be to cast blame, most likely at President Barack Obama for not having intervened more aggressively earlier.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I can no longer believe anything the government, or their presstitutes, attempt to tell me.

Successive American governments which cannot learn from their mistakes (and we can definitely start with Vietnam on this) is a dangerous, sociopathic actor on the international stage, and one which cannot be trusted at all, either by friend or alleged foe.
