Having lost major wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, plus embarking on various futile murderous forays into Pakistan, Yemen and sundry other places in Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia, the US has now, it appears, decided to launch a war against the legitimate government, however unpleasant, of Syria on what appear to be the entirely spurious basis that Assad's "Thug" regime is killing its own people with toxic gas.
In fact, according to some sources, it is the al Qaeda cannibals backed by the humanity-loving West, who are using poisonous gases in Syria under the direction of US advisers in Jordan and Turkey.
According to George Bush "Fool me once, shame on ......... you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." But not so, apparently, with the American people. The same bollocks works well every time the war lobby sets out to kill another few hundred thousand people in the name of democracy and humanity at a cost of trillions to the taxpayer.
