Syria Strike To Be “Unbelievably Small” Kerry Promises, Leaves Everyone Puzzled
by Tyler Durden
The Secretary of State, his emotional appeal to populist empathy using hundreds of YouTube clips showing the alleged aftermath of a chemical attack but not one piece of evidence proving Assad launched said attack, falling on deaf ears and eyes, has revised his track for a Syrian intervention. The latest spin from John Kerry: the Syrian attack would be “unbelievably small” as he characterized it today at a London press conference. Or, in the parlance of our times, “just the tip.” Bloomberg adds: “We’re not talking about war, we’re not going to war.” He spoke of a “limited, very targeted, very short-term effort.” This happened while Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem left for Moscow today, seeking a joint approach with Russia to defuse Western assertions that the Syrian regime is using chemical munitions against its own people.” In other words: Gazpromia refuses to be denied the “most unfavoured nation” status when it comes to being the marginal supplier of natgas to Europe.
