This week, President Obama announced that US “intelligence estimates” conclusively prove Syria has been using chemical weapons.
The US will now supply weapons and ammunition to Syrian rebels, the Washington Post says are, not just al-Qaeda “affiliates” but working to destabilize and “Balkanize” Iraq as well, “In an audio message posted online, the speaker identified as Baghdadi insists that a merger he announced in April with Syria’s al-Nusra Front, also known as Jabhat al-Nusra, to create a cross-border movement known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant will go on.
Al-Nusra is an al-Qaeda affiliate that has emerged as one of the most effective rebel factions in Syria.”
The US has also decided to leave F 16 jets inside Jordan after recent military exercises ended. However, despite calls by Egypt’s Mohamed Morsi for a “no fly zone” over Syria, President Obama has stated such an endeavor is “not in the best interest of the United States.
He should have added “at this time.”
Morsi, this week, called for a holy war on Islam’s Shia sect, which makes up nearly 40% of the Muslim population of the Middle East. Morsi referred to Shia Muslims as “unclean” and called for the extermination of what would constitute the majority of the population of Iraq, Iran, large portions of Kuwait, Azerbaijan, Yemen, Nigeria, Ghana, Lebanon, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and a dozen other nations.
Morsi called for Egyptian “fighters” to begin a war on Syria, Iraq and Iran, a war that coincides with the expansionist goals of “Greater Israel” and the rogue elements of the CIA.
Last week, Morsi was also heard to call for military action against Ethiopia over a hydroelectric project he says is intended to divert the Nile River and turn Egypt into a barren wasteland.
Analysts cite Morsi’s recent behavior as both “bizarre and unstable,” indicating desperation at his inability to cope with domestic problems that seem to be moving inexorably toward a renewal of widespread domestic confrontation against the Cairo government.
Morsi has yet to address his failure to follow up on his promises to support Gaza after Israeli attacks in November 2012. Both Morsi and Turkey’s Erdogan have, in actuality, moved closer to Israel and given that nation a free hand in continuing its use of cluster bombs and chemical munitions on Gaza’s civilian population.
Obama’s claim that the Assad government in Syria has used chemical weapons is clearly a response to pressure placed on Washington by the powerful AIPAC/Israeli lobby.
AIPAC has orchestrated a nearly endless barrage of real or contrived “scandals,” sometimes carrying over Bush era crimes and blaming Obama, sometimes inventing them, such as the IRS “scandal,” and others, such as the Snowden revelations.
Snowden’s “whistle blowing” has allowed Americans to learn of the decade old communications interception program authorized by congress, exhaustively funded and publicly lauded by the American people who, after 9/11, jumped at every chance to sacrifice freedoms and privacy for the promise of “security” that no longer seems as attractive as it may once have.
AIPAC’s ability to control, not just the entire Republican Party but key members of Obama’s own party and America’s
