Lew Rockwell: "how dare they invite Iran!"


This is getting pretty ridiculous. It's becoming more and more evident that the US wants to pull an Iran 53' 2.0 in Syria with the "Syrian opposition party". Combined with the mixed messages the US is sending Iran. From the nuke deal, to the talk of more sanctions, to this. I think they're still shaking from the NSA documents Snowden released and are desperately trying to figure out how they can put back up the facade of an iron grip over how international politics the US government was perceived to have.

"How dare they invite the United States!" is what I say.

What's the U.S. got to do with Syria's civil war, anyway? Has our role in the awful carnage and mass destruction been greater than Iran's, and that's why our plenipotentiary is going and their's is not? Hmm....

Excellent article by Daniel

Excellent article by Daniel McAdams; read it this morning over @ Lew's.

Ban Ki Moon

from the article:

In a move that should earn Ban Ki Moon an eternal place in the diplomacy hall of shame, under frantic pressure from Kerry and the US administration he quickly rescinded the invitation to the Iranians. Any doubt over who controls the UN should be confirmed by the Secretary General’s spineless obsequiousness.

Thanks for the article!

Americans are overwhelmingly against another interventionist War/CIA backed Regime change but the corrupted liars in Congress and foreign lobbyists will insist on pushing Plan B.

Kerry's Geneva II Delusions

Secretary of State John Kerry is in a bind. The US claims that the purpose of its two-plus year covert and overt support for rebels in Syria is to establish democracy in that country. But to get there the US has backed an artificially cemented together gaggle of expatriate oppositionists who are less supported in Syria than was US-backed Ahmad Chalabi and his Iraqi National Congress in Iraq. On the ground in Syria the "moderate" rebels the US has supported have turned out to be allied with -- and in some cases a PR front for -- Islamic fundamentalists of the al-Qaeda variety.

To get to "democracy" in Syria, the US has allied with the most undemocratic forces in a "we must destroy the village to save the village" strategy.
