Congress Denied Syrian Facts, Too

Robert Parry, Consortium News: While seeking authority for a limited war with Syria, the Obama administration withheld from the American people the US intelligence on the alleged chemical weapons attack of August 21, amid assurances that Congress got all the secret details. But that doesn t appear to be true.

Obama s Syrian 'Doomsday Machine'

Robert Parry, Consortium News: By setting in motion a possibly catastrophic plan to bomb Syria, President Obama has created what amounts to a 'doomsday machine' that could detonate if not disarmed by a breakthrough on peace talks.

Obama s Case for Syria Didn t Reflect Intel Consensus

Gareth Porter, Inter Press Service: An IPS analysis reveals that the Syrian chemical summary sent to Congress is highly biased, reflecting the consensus of the Obama administration instead of an objective, intelligence community assessment.

The US Has No Credibility Dealing With Chemical Weapons

Stephen Zunes, Truthout: Had the United States pursued a policy halting the proliferation of chemical and other nonconventional weapons through region-wide disarmament when it was proposed in 2003 by Syria, it is likely there would be no apparent use of such ordnance and no present rush to war on that basis, says Zunes.

From Hiroshima to Syria, The Enemy Whose Name We Dare Not Speak

By John Pilger

The intrinsic criminality of the atomic bombing is borne out in the US National Archives and by the subsequent decades of militarism camouflaged as democracy. The Syria psychodrama exemplifies this.

Obama s Rogue State Tramples Over Every Law It Demands Others Uphold

By George Monbiot

For 67 years the US has pursued its own interests at the expense of global justice, no wonder people are sceptical now.

As With Iraq, New York Times Propagates Demonstrable Lies About Syrian WMD

By Jeremy R. Hammond

This is the same kind of propagandistic reporting that the Times engaged in prior to the U.S. war on Iraq. Once again, it is evident that America's 'newspaper of record' is serving as a mouthpiece for the U.S. government.

US Journalists and War Crime Guilt

By Peter Dyer

War propaganda is still legal and very much alive, flourishing, in fact, as demonstrated by periodic calls for one more invasion of a country which has never threatened the U.S.

Intelligence on Syria: Different this time?

by David Wise


The long shadow of the faulty, hyped intelligence in the run-up to the war in Iraq has posed a huge barrier to President Barack Obama s efforts to win public and congressional support for a limited missile strike against Syria. Remember the 'mushroom cloud?' Both President George W. Bush and Condoleezza Rice, his national security adviser, used that terrifying phrase, invoking images of a nuclear holocaust, to push America along the road to war...None of it was true...

Obama s Syrian folly

Liberty Unbound
by Jon Harrison


One hopes that the strikes will be limited, and that we will then declare that Assad has been taught a lesson, followed by a return to the status quo ante. Syria s allies will choose not to act, and the war will not spread. But in the past few days the Defense Department has expanded its list of targets, some of which will require attacks by strike aircraft. An air campaign stretching out for days or possibly even weeks could be in the offing. Such an expanded campaign is more likely to provoke a response from Syria and Syria s friends. A longer, messier intervention by US forces could conceivably devolve into a regional war. If events spin out of control, the possibility of boots on the ground cannot be excluded...

Can this war be stopped?
by Justin Raimondo


The world holds its collective breath as the President of the United States calls for military action in Syria, Congress debates the question, and the war-sickened American public asks: What s next?

Sequestration, costs of war and Syria

Campaign For Liberty Campaign for Liberty
by Michael Clayton


With U.S. military intervention in Syria looming, some are worried that sequester cuts to the defense budget will impair the ability of the military to efficiently complete the job, giving the White House an upper hand in the fast-approaching fiscal showdown. Sequestration has reduced the Pentagon s budget by about $37 billion this year, with at least another $50 billion of reductions scheduled for the next fiscal year. The goal of the Obama Administration is to show that these reductions will severely hurt the Pentagon so that the GOP defense hawks will accept new taxes as part of deal to increase the Pentagon s budget...
