Mick Hall poses the very simple question:
What type of moronic president would threaten a fellow UN member state with this 'Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and smart!
If the Islamic dunderheads who are in the tight grip of their god had any thought for the living they would negotiate a path to end the war in Syria, they must know they cannot win. We witnessed what they do with power in Raqqa and it wasn’t pretty. Murder, intimidation, a slave market in the heart of the city, where women and young girls were sold to the highest bidder as if they were cattle.
It’s becoming increasingly clear after almost nine years of a bloody civil war the only way peace will come to Syria is if the current government led by Assad wins. The only other alternatives are permanent war, or a government in Damascus run religious fanatics. I might not like this but it is a fact.
After the alleged chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma which has not yet been independently verified, although the UN have now agreed to send weapons inspectors there. Instead of waiting for them to report Trump has posted on twitter an incendiary tweet about US missiles coming in:
"Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” (It is worth noting Jaysh al-Islam, (in English 'The Army of Islam') the militia which controlled Douma at the time of the alleged chemical weapons attack, is said to have mounted a chemical attack on Kurdish civilians in Aleppo in April 2016. Yet according to the mainstream media, Trump, Macron and the British government believe they're incapable of either staging or faking such an attack)
Emmanuel Macron and Theresa May have proudly proclaimed they have held phone consultation with Trump about which Syrian government facilities to target.
May and Macron remind me of the kid who tags around with the school playground bully because they lack the physical attributes to be a bully themselves.
The USA and it's two European allies attempt to take the high moral ground by supporting ever more military intervention in Syria will not only prolong the war, it's gross hypocrisy of the worst kind. Pray tell me what is the difference between being vaporised by a cruise missile while seeking shelter in a Baghdad bunker from shock and awe, and choking to death after Chlorine attack in a cellar in Douma, if that is what happened.
What is the difference between the numbers killed in Yemen by Saudi Arabia with weapons supplied by the UK and USA, and those killed by the Assad regime in Syria with weapons supplied by Putin's Russia?
The Syrian government doesn't pose any threat to the USA or it’s citizens, nor its two main allies and never has, indeed that shoe is on the other foot.
When will we wake up to the fact military intervention in other people’s wars only makes a bad situation worse. History teaches it only prolongs wars, whether it be in the north of Ireland, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria or Yemen.
