President Obama wanted war against Syria, a sovereign nation and is getting it at any cost it seems even though Syrian president Assad does not want any help fighting the terrorists of ISIS . many see this action as a cover for oil pipelines ans supply of oil in the region , since air strikes started ISIS have taken more ground in Syria


In a recent interview with the BBC, Syrian President Assad responded to a question as to the possibility of his country cooperating with the United States by stating, “No, definitely we cannot and we don't have the will and we don't want, for one simple reason — because we cannot be in an alliance with countries which support terrorism." A more clear rejection of US military action in Syria could not possibly be given.

when the US inevitably violates Syrian sovereignty in this new phase of the war (they’ve been doing this for months already), will there be an outcry from those who still cling to the seemingly outdated notion of international law? Will there be any leaders who remind Washington and the world that there are clear and unmistakable precedents in international law which define this move as “aggressive”?

For, as the International Military Tribunal at Nuremburg unequivocally stated in 1946, “To initiate a war of aggression is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”


Why get involved when Syria has Iran and Russia as friends maybe Obama needs to look at that Nobel Peace Prize again

"Maybe Obama needs to look at that Nobel Peace Prize again"
HAHAHAHAHA

Interesting remarks from Assad, the whole part about "we cannot be in alliance with countries which support terrorism", reading that made me make a double take. We did free some prisoners in exchange for ISIS hostages so maybe that's why he said that? Or was it more of a subtle hint that the US is involved in other activities?

That piece about working with terrorists did jump out of the paper , but way to many air drops of weapons seem to be getting picked up by ISIS lately and is making the news far to often to be just a mistake , they even seem to be able to get plumbers trucks from the states when they want

This is an OP ed. And he hasn't declared war. He's asked Congress for support. Which he doesn't even need, since the 2002 authorization for the Iraq War is still in effect.

If Obama orders boots on the ground to remove their firing pins like he did to the Marines in Yemen and removing the guns from border control agents, the Syrians wont have much to worry about. But about the oil......not much changed!

Does that authorisation include Syria?

I think the timing might be relevant as all eyes are on Ukraine.

It's probably all rolling out nicely according to plan.

The fleeing of Embassy staff from Yemen is a major embarrassment to America in the eyes of the world , almost like Saigon all over again

Thank you for this post!

I agree with you about the international law thing.

First, I am a strong believer in international law and enforcement, because we need there to be a system that protects the weak from the strong. We also need more international cooperation and less wars, coups, terrorism, etc.

Second, the West makes a complete mockery of international law. We break such rules as no unilateral aggression, no preemptive strikes, no torture, etc.

Third, yes, Syria and Libya represent violations of international law and sovereignty. The West and it's regional allies have already violated international law through funding/arming/training rebels in a civil war.

I checked the news and you are lying about Obama. Congress declares war not the president. Are you auditioning for Fox News?

The meaning of that comment most likely is that the US has been funding/arming/training "freedom fighters" and militants across the world to achieve foreign policy objectives for decades.

Remember, the US and its allies have been supporting the "rebels" in Syria for two years. To a government like Assad's, that would be extremely aggressive and offensive.

The world needs to grow a set and impose sanctions against any country involved in war or the support of war no exceptions .

It seems to be the only thing that a country understands ,the threat of financial war

Excellent discussion!

Yes, the U.S. is trying yet again - as Bilderberg's biggest toadie - to invade Syria for a "proposed" oil pipeline the Global Elitists' can't wait to get their claws into. Haven't you noticed how the word "Syria" has totally dropped out of all the media reports on the ISIL? This terrorist group (that the U.S. helped train at least part of) seems to be fighting in the clouds somewhere over the MidEast ...

Good find about Kerry
he sure has done a 180 since the Vietnam days


Could it be because Qatar is the largest exporter of liquid natural gas in the world and Assad won't let them build a natural gas pipeline through Syria? Of course. Qatar wants to install a puppet regime in Syria that will allow them to build a pipeline which will enable them to sell lots and lots of natural gas to Europe.

The war on ISIS is authorized under a 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force, which gave then-President George W. Bush essentially a blank check to defend the nation against threats of that time

If he had some devious master plan (to do what???), he's starting pretty late in the game.
