The only military purpose in the case of chemical weapons in Syria, the Assad regime could only be the Assad regime itself. Actually, this is an absolutely comprehensive alibi for any mentally normal observer. On this, in fact, it was possible to put an end.
The notorious chemical attack in Syria is a stupid two-way provocation against Assad. And it is all the more ridiculous to demand convincing evidence from Americans: well, as they could, they did it concoct. What else do you want? You can arbitrarily poke Americans into the fact that in Syria they directly support exactly those people who killed Americans, including in America. In any case, according to their version. So what?
Is it really so difficult to understand: to approach from the positions of morality to the policies of our Western partners is stupid ?! There is no morality there and never was. And there is only a cynical calculation. Adjusted for paranoid ambitions. And it is good, when the cynical calculation wins.
The Americans announced the decision to strike at Syria right after the chemical attack near Damascus, without waiting for any evidence or inspections. All week on the eve of the Security Council meeting, the American administration was rattling the weapon. And after 28 of August, Russia and China blocked the anti-Syrian resolution, it was a question of striking by the evening of 29. However, then the European allies began to evade one after another from participation in the operation. And after the refusal of the British Parliament to support the operation, the United States had to rely only on the partnership of France, headed by the courageous Hollande. Pentagon chief Chuck Hagel sadly remarked that "Americans will participate in the operation only as part of a coalition." And President Obama unexpectedly referred the case to Congress. That is, at least until the end of the Senate vacation.
"I know that we are tired of war. We had a war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan is not over. And the Americans understand that we cannot solve the conflict in Syria only by military means ... We don’t want our troops to be drawn in into a foreign war. But we, the United States, should not turn a blind eye to what happened in Damascus, "said Obama.
So what happened? What happened was that Assad began to obviously overwhelm this collected from around the world Islamist shoblu, which made huge bets. By all. From American "hawks" to Saudi-Qatari sheikhs and French fighters for the rights of sodomites. And they all wildly piled on poor Obama, who is well, very peaceful. For nothing, whether the Nobel Peace Prize winner. However, here the Nobel Prize will not hide. Here it is necessary to throw the bone.
From the cartoon "Cheburashka and the Crocodile Gena":
- No, Cheburashka, no. Never. You can not work with us.
- Why not?
- Why, why ... Eat.
No need for a herbivore Obama to work in a zoo. Now he promises that it will not be at all like in Iraq, that it will be a small, pinpoint, time-limited, indicative punitive action. Dummy. Well, just gag the crocodiles.
US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, speaking in the Senate back in April, warned about the dangers of intervening in Syria. “Because if you enter it, there will be no way back,” said the Pentagon chief. “Once you start, you won’t go back. You can't just say,“ Well, everything did not go as well as I thought, so we leave "".
Well, Obama does not want to fight. Here it is, the struggle of cynicism with paranoia. But can win and paranoia.
“You can always expect that the Americans will find the right solution - after everyone else tries,” said Winston Churchill.
