Rhetoric of the Warmongers
or the simple truths
"Obama's Speech" the simple truths
“Chemical weapons kill on mass scale, not distinguishing
soldier from infant”
Bomb, drones, DU kill on mass scale, not distinguishing soldier from
is a danger to our national security .... Assad doesn’t have the ability to
threaten us" [who does?] One
statement contradicts and erases the other
“If we don’t bomb Syria, Iran will go ahead with its nuclear
weapons program” If we do bomb Syria, Iran will have more reason than ever to defend
have spent 4½ years working to end wars” How? Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan?
“working” by engaging in most drone/military strikes, most foot soldiers in
conflict, a bigger military budget than ever, resulting in more wars against 5
more countries: which just goes to show war begets war
“Targeted strikes..but not to take out Assad”
Who or what does Obama want to take out with his bombing then?
“We must reject the forces of tyranny and extremism”
How much more tyrannical and extremist can a nation get attacking
another nation that has not attacked it?
qaeda will draw strength from chaos in Syria”
get much more chaotic then mighty U.S. bombs and drone attacks
“We can’t leave this to other countries…”
Other countries have refused to break international law and join us
leadership are heavy…” as are the riches resulting from military ‘leadership’
“We’ve made the world a better place” Better for our corporations to exploit a
devastated peoples and a destroyed country
“Reconcile … freedom and dignity with pictures of children
wreathing in pain” Pain from US bombs, drone attacks? Starvation, violence, mothers raped,
brothers tortured? Deformities from DU, cluster bombs, land mines?
“If the people of Syria see the world doing nothing to
prevent the death of civilians…” As in when the U.S. bombs, killing more
civilians at once than anyone else is capable of – or at least willing to use
the weapons we use?
“I asked Congress to postpone the vote…” HA!
He knew he didn’t have the votes in Congress to approve yet another military
aggression THANK YOU anti-war movement and those representatives acting for the
“Assad must give up his chemical weapons…and destroy them” Hey,
great idea – let’s show him how that’s done! U.S.A. number one biggest weapons
arsenal in the world!
“Give UN inspectors time to do their job” What
job when he states unequivocally exactly what they will find & exactly who
is at fault?
