Neocons push for another war that means genocide for Christians

Rand Paul: Assad 'Protected Christians' in Syria, Rebels 'Attacking Christians
By Christina Wilkie

WASHINGTON - Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday portrayed the current conflict in Syria as one between the government of President Bashar Al Assad, who Paul said "has protected Christians for a number of decades," and "Islamic rebels," who Paul said "have been attacking Christians" and are aligned with Al Qaeda.

"I think the Islamic rebels winning is a bad idea for the Christians, and all of a sudden we'll have another Islamic state where Christians are persecuted," Paul said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Paul was likely referring to a string of incidents in Egypt in recent weeks, where supporters of the deposed government of former president Mohamed Morsi have burned Coptic Christian churches to protest what they see as Christian backing for the military overthrow of Morsi's government.

Aleppo Christians Fear
Iraq-Style Ethnic Cleansing

By: Edward Dark for Al-Monitor

It would be very accurate to describe some areas of Aleppo as “Christian,” although this by no means implies any sort of self- or outside-imposed segregation or discrimination. Residents of other faiths are found, and get along just fine in those areas. It is just that they are predominantly Christian.

Unfortunately, by a stroke of peculiarly bad luck, all the Christian neighborhoods are on or near the front lines in the parts of Aleppo divided between regime and rebel control. They have seen more than their fair share of fighting, “collateral damage” and a long line of civilian casualties.

Iraq's war on Christians
Op-Ed
December 15, 2010|Tim Rutten

As much of the world once more prepares to celebrate the birth of Christ, it is a melancholy fact that many of the most ancient churches established in his name are being pushed to the brink of oblivion across the region where their faith was born.

The culprits are Salafist Islam's increasingly virulent intolerance, the West's convenient indifference and, in the case of Iraq, America's failure to make responsible provisions to protect minorities from the violent disorder that has persisted since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

Christians: The Roman

Christians: The Roman Catholic Church is holding fast-vigils around the country on Saturday evening, and has invited everybody (including especially non-Roman Catholics in particular) to attend. Attendance at these will be an opportunity for American Christians to pray together to save the Syrian Church from Obama's aggression, but will also show the large extent of Christian opposition to attacking Syria. Check the website of your nearest Roman Catholic diocese for information.

*Alas and Alack*, Once again war-mongering has 'unintended ....

consequences'... and guess who suffers the most: My brothers and sisters in Messiah! I am ashamed to call my self an American, and apologize to my brothers and sisters overseas for the danger we have placed them in.

We pray for Peace!

Anti-World Police US Taxpayer Protection Act

Someone in congress should sponsor a bill with this title.

This bill will protect US taxpayers from paying for any and all undeclared wars. Taxpayers will not be responsible for paying for covert proxy wars. World police actions undertaken by the president or congress shall not be paid for by US taxpayers.

This is the only way to stop the government from engaging in future illegal wars.

Blame the Republicans

don't blame the Russia's MIC or the UN or Assad.. blame Americans.

Right.

Because America is forever blameless.

America, FUCK YEAH!
