Late on September 22, 2014, Obama began bombing Syria to “destroy ISIS.”
Never mind that Obama had not gotten permission from Congress nor made an official declaration of war. This was another unilateral decision made by Obama in direct violation of multiple laws.
Daniel McAdams reports:
The Obama Administration has initiated a bomb and land-based missile attack against Syrian territory without permission from the Syrian government, without a request for assistance from the Syrian government, and without a UN Security Council resolution.
This is an act of US aggression against a foreign nation and a violation of international law.
The attacks were also made with no declaration of war or authorization from the US Congress. This is an illegal act according to US law, a violation of the US Constitution.
The 2001 Authorization for the Use of Force against perpetrators of 9/11 attacks could not be legally valid for Obama’s attacks on ISIS in Syria because ISIS is not part of al-Qaeda and in fact did not exist at the time of the 2001 attacks.
It was about the same time last year that the Obama administration tried to go to war with Syria in order to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
For pretext, they offered up the story that the Syrian government had killed its own citizens with Sarin gas. This claim was eventually proven to be false, although the U.S. government did not admit its “error” (lie) until December 2013.
The U.S. government has a long history of fabricating (or twisting) stories to build public support for war. It’s no different today.
George W. Bush and Colin Powell told us that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) — and that was why we had to invade Iraq and depose Saddam Hussein. It was all a lie. This is just one example of many.
Of course, after last year’s failed attempt to start a war with Syria, the government had to go back to the drawing board. Today, the new pretext for war is the Islamic State in general and the alleged beheadings of American and British reporters specifically.
I knew that war with Syria was unavoidable. How did I know? Because it’s been part of a larger “war plan” that goes back to at least 2001.
What many people do not know is that General Wesley Clark explained in 2007 what was going to happen in the Middle East. In his speech, he relates back to 2001 when he first heard of a plan to start seven (7) wars in five (5) years.
This plan has had a few hiccups along the way, but it is still rolling along. One of the countries Clark specifically mentioned is Syria. The U.S. has had plans to overthrow Syria’s government since 2001. So it was only a matter of time before the rockets began to fly. See for yourself:
All wars are started to gain wealth or power. So I appreciate that Clark points this out: “The truth about the Middle East is, had there had been no oil there, it would be like Africa. Nobody is threatening to intervene in Africa. … There’s no question that the presence of petroleum throughout the region has sparked our involvement.”
Every day, governments murder their own people. Every day, there are acts of terrorism carried out against innocent civilians. Why, then, is the U.S. so selective in deciding who it will bomb and who it will leave alone?
On September 21, 2013, the Islamist group al-Shabaab claimed credit for a mass shooting that killed 67 people in the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya. Why didn’t the U.S. threaten to start bombing key targets in Africa to wipe out the Islamist extremists? And why are we doing it now in Syria instead?
The simple answer is that Kenya is not part of the plan; Syria is.
That’s why the U.S. helped to create an enemy — ISIS — that they could later use as pretext for war. It is well-documented that the CIA created ISIS. In fact, it is also well-documented that the head of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (also known as Elliot Shimon), is an intelligence asset of both the CIA and the Mossad.
Remember who else was a CIA intelligence asset? Osama bin Laden, also known as Tim Osman. Osama bin Laden was then used as justification for our invasion of Afghanistan — even though bin Laden had died in December 2001.
This is how the U.S. works. It creates its own enemies, then uses those enemies as justification for war. This process also involves lying to the American public and carrying out mass media disinformation campaigns. This is a pattern.
