US President Obama on the one hand is preparing to impose
a no-fly zone inside Syria to prevent a legitimate government
from cracking down on US/UK backed militant rebels who are
killing police, reporters and
civilians, and on the other hand is to send weapons to the
militants to kill more Syrian soldiers,
reporters and civilians.
The no-fly zone option came one day after White House made
an unsubstantiated accusation against the Syrian government
that chemical weapons are used in fighting with the foreign-backed
militants, yet some weeks ago U.S. officials said that the
decision to arm the militants in Syria had already been made.
So once again, true American patriot and former Congressman
Ron Paul stood up and spoke out. The following are the main
points in his speech:
President Obama has agreed to send weaponry
to assist the rebels in Syria. It's escalation of war, since
the US has already been involved in Syria's civil war for
quite a few months, and has been supporting the rebels for
probably the past two years, supposedly for humanitarian
reasons. But now there is going to be a much more aggressive
approach and the US is going to send weapons.
There are a few problems with this. First
of all, it is a war; second, according to American Constitution,
US presidents are not supposed to start war without permission
of American people through a congressional declaration of
The language the White House used against
the Syrian government is the same, they use the same arguments:
Weapons of Mass Destruction, poison gases, hundreds people
died - the US government has done this before in preparation
for its Iraqi War. A couple of weeks again, Obama administration
was admitting some of the poison gas may have come from the
The weapons the US sent to the rebels probably
end up in hands of Al-Qaeda and are used to against American
Before the Iraqi War, there was no Al-Qaeda
in Iraq. Now there is.
While foreign policy as such is back firing
on the United States, Israelis will also get themselves into
a real trouble by supporting those rebellions, whether in
Libya, Egypt, or in Syria. The instability in the Middle
East cannot help Israel.
But neo-cons are winning this battle in
the US and they are controlling the foreign policy.
It’s time for the American people to wake
up and let their members of Congress and their senators know:
A poll conducted by Gallup shows that 68 percent of Americans
agree with Ron Paul and are against Obama regime to take
any military action in Syria.
