Arguably this is the money quote - a summary of US foreign policy according to Beijing; "It is not difficult to find that, under the disguise of
humanitarianism, the United States has always tried to smash governments it considers as threats to its so-called national interests and relentlessly
replace them with those that are Washington-friendly."
All the key players here - the US, Russia and China - know Damascus won't commit the folly of using (or "moving") chemical weapons. So no wonder
Moscow and Beijing are extremely suspicious this "red line" gambit may be yet another Obama deception maneuver, as in "leading from behind" in
Libya (this is nonsense; in fact the attack on Libya started with Africom and then was transferred to NATO).
Once again the big picture is clear; this is a titanic battle between NATO-GCC and BRICS members Russia and China. At stake is nothing less than the
rule of international law, which has been steadily going down the drain since [then or well before ] Agent Orange being sprayed all over Vietnam,
through Dubya's invasion of Iraq in 2003, and with the Libyan "humanitarian bombing" reaching an abysmal low.
Not to mention Israel daily threatening to bomb Iran - as if this was a trip to a kosher deli.
