    Default oligarchs of war


    "It does not matter if the war is not real, or when it is real, it does not matter if victory is not possible...The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous...The essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labor... A hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance...In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation...The war is waged by the ruling group against it's own subjects, and it's object is not victory over Eurasia or East Asia ( or Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, or Iran) but to keep the very structure of society intact." -- George Orwell, 1984

    Default Hrrumph mandates Syrian regime change


    Trump Wants Regime Change in Syria
    by Stephen Lendman
    In March 2011, Obama launched war on Syria to destroy its sovereignty and replace Assad with pro-Western puppet rule.
    Trump upped the stakes. He escalated war, increased US terror-bombing, and doubled the number of US forces on the ground ahead of likely larger numbers coming.
    His hugely dangerous war plan risks direct confrontation with Russia. Instead of governing responsibly, he's recklessly risking possible nuclear war in the Middle East and on the Korean peninsula.
    In northern Syria, hundreds of thousands of civilians are threatened by US terror-bombing - targeting infrastructure and government sites on the phony pretext of combating ISIS America created and supports.
    On Monday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres' spokesman Staphane Dujarric issued a briefing on catastrophic humanitarian conditions in Yemen, Mosul, Afghanistan, South Sudan, and the safety of over 400,000 Syrians in Raqqa.
    Around 10 million Yemenis "require immediate assistance to save or sustain their lives," he stressed. The country is "the largest food security emergency in the world…on the brink of (catastrophic) famine."
    Fighting and terror-bombing of Mosul continues, up to 400,000 displaced so far - in desperate need of aid. The lives and welfare of around two million Iraqis are endangered by ongoing conflict. The civilian death toll keeps mounting.
    "(D)etainees in Afghanistan continue to face torture and ill-treatment in government detention facilities." America's longest war continues endlessly with no prospect for resolution.
    In South Sudan, "lack of accountability for crimes perpetrated during the conflict remains one of the country's biggest challenges."
    Syrians in and around Raqqa are exposed to daily ground fighting and US-led terror-bombing - including against infrastructure, hospitals, schools, mosques, markets and residential areas.
    Unknown numbers of civilians are being killed daily, perhaps thousands before the campaign ends.
    According to Dujarric, "(i)n past weeks, civilians have been exposed to daily fighting and airstrikes which resulted in an escalating number of civilian deaths and injuries…"
    "Some 39,000 (were) newly displaced," most in open areas without shelter or protection from fighting and bombing. Desperate people are without humanitarian aid.
    Russia's intervention in Syria improved conditions greatly for its people - liberated from hundreds of areas previously controlled by US-supported terrorists, provided with humanitarian aid by Moscow and Syria to sustain them.
    Separately on Monday, the US Treasury Department announced sanctions on 271 Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center personnel - on the phony pretext of involvement in chemical weapons development.
    Washington holds them responsible for developing the toxic agent used in Kahn Sheikhoun on April 4 - an incident Syria had nothing to do with, a false flag irresponsibly blamed on its military and Bashar al-Assad.
    Last Friday, Sergey Lavrov said Russia's call for an independent, unbiased on-site investigation was "blocked by Western delegations without any explanations."
    "(O)bvious false information" is being used by America and its rogue allies to topple Assad - likely by escalated war, involving larger numbers of US forces.

    Truth-Telling From Syria Exposes Scoundrel Media Lies
    by Stephen Lendman
    Since Obama launched naked aggression on Syria, using imported terrorist foot soldiers, aided by US-terror-bombing, I've written numerous articles, too many to count, throughout the horror inflicted on defenseless civilians.

    But I've never been to the shattered country to see firsthand what's happening - the devastating carnage, the unspeakable human misery, the loss of life and anguish from US imperial viciousness.

    21st Century Wire's Patrick Henningsen and Vanessa Beeley are there now, reporting on US-led Western and regional state-sponsored atrocities - committed by ISIS, al-Nusra and other imperial foot soldiers, endless war and carnage against a beleaguered, long-suffering people.

    What can possibly justify so much harm on so many Syrians for so long with no end in sight to their long ordeal - because America wants war, regime change and destruction of the Syrian Arab Republic, no matter the cost in human lives and suffering.

    Assad is wrongfully blamed for US-led imperial lawlessness, Russia bashed for combating terrorism, along with supporting Syrian sovereignty, territorial integrity and right of its people to decide who'll lead them - free from foreign interference.

    On April 15 alone, mass slaughter devastated the lives of defenseless civilians in Kafarya and Foua villages - scores killed including dozens of children, many others injured by a suicide bombing, other explosive device or combination of both.

    Here's what media scoundrels suppressed. A US-supported terrorist lured children near buses sent to transport them from the area to a car with promises of food. They were massacred in cold blood along with adults.
    Henningsen said what he, Beeley and others saw was "harrowing…hard to describe (and) put into words. Very emotional testimonies by the victims' families."

    "Stories about a long bus ride from Idlib to al-Rashideen to the rallying point where there is going to be the exchange."

    "Something that would normally take 45 minutes - it took up to seven hours in being taunted along the way, and being kept on the buses for 48 hours with very small rations; children being bated out of the buses to the death essentially."
    "For those victims, it was an eery much highly organized affair and a premeditated affair, and very carefully organized for maximum casualties."

    "That is just the beginning of that story, but there is a lot more to it, and a lot more suspicion about some of the people who were there."

    "Of course, there are affiliations with extremists as well. Bodies are being taken away; children are being taken away."
    "Turkish ambulances seemingly on standby according to the witnesses there, which is very odd - seem to have been ready to bring it to action and take away people to where? We're not sure."

    Scoundrel media reports bore no resemblance to eyewitness accounts of what happened. What sources supplied their information, Henningsen asked?

    Was it al-Qaeda-linked White Helmets or US-issued talking points, suppressing truth-telling, substituting Big Lies?
    America bears full responsibility for mass slaughter and destruction in Syria. Its rogue allies and terrorist foot soldiers share blame.
    Endless horror continues with no resolution in sight.
