US Bringing World to the Brink of Nuclear War

U.S.-Russia-Syria 2


By Cindy Sheehan  /  TeleSUR  /

What’s Happening In Syria Has Been Going On For Over Five Years And It’s Not A Civil War.

U.S. imperialism has been exporting disaster around the world for over a century now, but not since the “Cuban” missile crisis in 1962, has the U.S. put the world on the brink of such a disaster as we are witnessing today.

What’s happening in Syria has been going on for over five years and it’s not a civil war. The conflict began as a U.S.-funded effort to depose President Bashar Assad and install a puppet government in Damascus friendly to U.S. interests. I am sure there are some legitimate forces in Syria who oppose the government of Assad, but the U.S. does not care about democracy—afterall Assad was elected by his people.

Also in Syria, approximately one dozen militias are not only trying to overthrow the Assad government but they are also fighting amongst themselves . The ranking Democrat on the U.S. Congressional House Intelligence Committee, uber-Zionist Adam Schiff of California, said of the phenomena of CIA-funded militias fighting in places like Aleppo, “It’s part of the three-dimensional chess game.” This chess game, played by empires for millennia, profit the wealthy and as always, the people pay the heavy price.

 Today we learned that China is contemplating joining Russia and Syria in their alliance to protect the sovereignty of Syria and for stabilization in the Middle East.

The U.S. has long invaded and provoked weaker countries like Afghanistan and Iraq which have little hope of retaliating but nonetheless use what resources they have to fight off U.S. imperialism. However, provoking Russia in places like Syria and Ukraine seems to be the height of arrogance and stupidity on the part of the U.S.

For many years, Russian President Vladimir Putin has been the rational actor in this insane U.S. provocation, but Russia is getting ready to fight back—reportedly holding civil defense drills, warning Russians abroad, and even testing nuclear missiles.

Some of us see no hope for the mis-leaders here in the U.S. to provide some sanity in its foreign policy. In the last U.S. presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, the war criminal Clinton reaffirmed her hardcore stance to go to war with Russia, through Syria, if necessary. Clinton also declared her support for a “no fly zone” over Syria, which the chair of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford said would require 70,000 U.S. troops to maintain and would definitely mean war with Russia.

Even though Russia has been invited into Syria by the government—as rational people who are filled with apprehension over the reality of this danger—we should be calling on all world leaders to pause in their rush to war.

But the only thing that can really stop imperialist carnage is an international working-class force, refusing to be used as cannon-fodder for capitalism, and instead fighting for socialism.

Our very survival as a species depends on international solidarity.

    Barry Obama is trying to force the Russians to back down from their position in Syria. He is trying to go into the history books for a diplomatic success like Kennedy had in 1962.

    Mr. Obama, if you are reading this, you need to come to terms with these realities:

    1. It is not 1962. It is 2016. The world has changed since 1962.

    2. Syria is not Cuba, which is only 90 miles off our border.

    3. You are not John Kennedy, or anything close to his standard.

    4. The Russians are not going to back down from their stand in Syria. Period. Do you understand this? Why can’t you grasp this fact?

    5. If you keep pressuring the Russians like you have been, the situation could easily turn into WW3. If that happens, your daughters will grow up in a nuclear wasteland. Do you really want this?

    6. The Republic’s best interests do not lie in forcing Assad from power. Who cares who governs Syria? Let him alone. He is the democratically elected president of a sovereign country. You cannot issue one of your “out of bounds” executive orders to sweep him from power. This is so typical of hypocritical democratic mentality and thinking: you espouse democracy, but only as it applies to leaders that meet your approval.

    7. Word is out that the war in Syria is to secure a clear route for a petroleum products pipeline from eastern Arabia and Qatar to Europe. An alternative route is that they can run their pipeline from Arabia to Port Said, Egypt. The products can be shipped over the Mediterranean without having to go through Syria. Did the Bilderbergers and Super-Rich order this war? Whom are you working for, anyway?

    You need to back down, Mr. Obama. Don’t do anything to burn this country in a nuclear conflagration for any reason. You are only the president for 97 more days. Don’t abuse your power in what time is left.

    • FAT AXL!!!

      “Mr. Obama, if you are reading this…”

      No doubt about it. Every morning after he reads his daily presidential brief and takes a dump, Obama always makes sure to scour the comment sections here at Before It’s News.

      In fact, all the world’s leaders do so — and some of them have even created BIN accounts in order to interact with the commentators here.

      Why, hell, for all you know, I could be Obama.

      (But I could just as easily be Putin.)
