The Powers That Be are still upset about Syria because Russia and Iran didn’t allow them to have their cake and eat it to. Thanks to Russia and Iran, at least 600,000 Syrians have returned home in the last six months or so. This is again a major defeat for the Israeli regime and the Neoconservatives in America.
But the war machine will not give up easily. They seemed to have made a pact which says that Russia and Iran must pay. The Jerusalem Post has recently declared that both Russia and Iran “violated UN weapons sanctions.” It states:
“The German paper Welt am Sonntag reported on Sunday that the Islamic Republic of Iran and Russia used a smuggling route for the transport of offensive weapons allegedly in violation of UN resolution 2231 imposing restrictions on Iran’s military activities. The large broadsheet paper cited ‘Western intelligence services’ for the claim that Iran delivered ‘offensive weapons systems’ to Russia via a military airbase in Syria.”
“Western intelligence services”? Can’t the Jerusalem Post see the internal contradiction here? It was “Western intelligence services” that supported ISIS in Syria and elsewhere. It was “Western intelligence services” (with the help of the Israeli regime) that declared that Assad used chemical weapons on his own people. It was “Western intelligence services” that literally overthrew a democratically elected president in Iran back in 1953. It was “Western intelligence services” that perpetuated the Iraq war. It was “Western intelligence services” that establish the Phoenix program in places like Vietnam. It was “Western intelligence services” that created sodomy at Abu Ghraib. And now they are telling us that Russia and Iran are the new threats on the bock?
It seems that the Powers That Be are slowly but surely realizing that people aren’t listening to their mumbo jumbo anymore. They are really desperate. They want to drink fresh blood virtually all over the world. They want to be masters of the universe. That is one reason why they see Russia and Iran as the new threats. Even South Korea is really tired of the war machine in America. When Trump declared that he would bring “fire and fury” to North Korea, South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in responded:
“Military action on the Korean peninsula can only be decided by South Korea and no one else can decide to take military action without the consent of South Korea. The government, putting everything on the line, will block war by all means.”
This is obviously a pointed rebuke to the Neoconservative ideology and the Trump administration.
