War is Coming in Syria Regardless of Chemical Weapons
BY JAMES BAILEY
SEPTEMBER 23, 2013
After beating the drums of war for a few days, the news media is reporting the threat of war in Syria has passed. They claim the issue was all about the use of chemical weapons and it is now heading for a peaceful diplomatic solution. Unfortunately, nothing they have reported so far is true.
I don’t believe the issue in Syria ever had anything to do with chemical weapons. Just because President Obama made that claim does not make it true. He has accused the Assad regime of using chemical weapons, but has provided no evidence to back it up. Amazingly, the mainstream news media just assumes President Obama is telling the truth and millions of Americans seem to believe him too.
If it really was about chemical weapons, then America would be siding with the Assad regime helping him defeat the Al Qaeda rebels because the rebels are the ones who used chemical weapons, not Assad. There is evidence to support that claim. Not only have the rebels openly bragged about using them, but there are also plenty of Youtube videos showing them using high powered launching equipment to fire chemical weapons.
Isn’t it interesting that the same people we are fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq are now supposed to by our allies in Syria? The same people who are called terrorists in Afghanistan and Iraq are called freedom fighters in Syria. Why should we fight to put Al Qaeda in control of Syria? There is something very wrong with America’s mission there because the story we are being told makes no sense. President Obama must think the America people are brain dead.
