It is no surprise that the mother country of all that is hypocritical—the United States is stooped so low as to try and exploit the suffering of our own people to promote the US foreign policy agenda. There are absolutely NO LINKS between the Boston Marathon Bombings and Syria. Secretary of State John Kerry is nothing short of an opportunist in exploiting that tragedy for his own political ends. It is despicable and the relatives and victims of this terrorist bombing should be outraged that their suffering be trivialized for such a ridiculous cause. -សតិវ អតុ
From The Wichita Eagle:
Kerry to talk Syria, terrorism in Russia next week
Secretary of State John Kerry is headed to Russia next week for talks on Syria, Iran and terrorism concerns that have spiked since the Boston Marathon bombings.
Kerry will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
Their conversations will also touch on a host of bilateral tensions between Washington and Moscow.
And for those of you who may have had trouble reading this last week, I’m reposting a list of euphemism they use and what they really mean:
**Establishing a no-fly zone—it sounds like creating a safe area for rebels and refugees. But as we saw in Libya, it really means an all-out attack on government forces using the US Air force.
**Get NATO backing or with a coalition of nations similar to the NATO-led overthrow of Libya’s Col. Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. This is really just a propaganda ploy to make it look like the whole world is coming together to the rescue—but in reality it is just a rouse to send US troops into a war zone, with a few token troops from other NATO countries.
**Some senators have also pressed for the U.S. to set up a narrow, so-called safe zone inside Syria, along its border with Turkey where citizens could go and be safe. To do so would also require neutralizing Syria’s air defenses. This is just another clever way of sending troops and using aircraft attacks on the Syrian Army. As with the no-fly zone, it is about attacking Assad’s troops and resources. There is nothing defensive about it.
**The U.S. has taken only minimal military steps so far, including the deployment of about 200 troops to Jordan to assist that country’s military. This is an admission that this country is already heavily involved militarily in this civil war. Little, if anything has been reported to the press about this, so many people may believe we are not yet at war in Syria. But the reality is we already deeply involved.
**Transition from power (for Assad)—As we already saw in Libya the transition amounts to letting the rebels drag Assad, his ruling circle, and many of his supporters into the street to be executed without any kind of trial. That is what happened in Libya and other places where the US has supported rebels against so called “anti-American governments.”
