no U.S. war in Syria

It’s as though recent history is repeating itself, with no broader historical perspective. It’s like the justification for war in Iraq in 2002-03 all over again and once again U.S. imperialism seems boundless and its power un-checked.

It was not that long ago that the U.S. and its allies were supplying the Assad regime with the very agents needed to develop these chemical weapons that now seem so atrocious to us that they justify military intervention. The ironies of imperialism are all over the mainstream media, it’s just too much to take
