Hypocrisy Rules the White House – The Question of Syria?

Barak Obama and John Kerry have said “This is so egregious that we have to take military action against Syria” speaking on the use of chemical weapons against Syrian civilians. “This war is about enforcing the standard of human rights” said Kerry. “We didn’t draw the red line, the world did” said Obama.

So why doesn’t the US administration care about human rights consistently? Does the US government care about human rights only when it serves “US interests?” If the US truly cares about human rights the US would not be a close ally with Saudi Arabia – the worst human rights abuser perhaps in the world. Add to that the US ally Israel which has a terrible human rights record in regard to the occupation and killing of 1000s of Palestinian civilians over the past 60 years. Israel has used chemical weapons against Palestinian civilians on several occasions. So what is the real “US interest” in striking Syria?

Is it really defending human rights? Why doesn’t the US administration care about the human rights abuses of Saudi Arabia or Israel? Furthermore, what about the human rights abuses carried out by the US government in Guantamo Bay, US Rendition programs that torture civilians throughout the world, the US torturing of Iraqis in Iraq prisons, and much more? I see far too much hypocrisy on the part of the US government to believe that the use of chemical weapons is the reason to strike Syria. I can’t believe this is the reason.

Furthermore, even if Assad may have gassed 400 of his own Syrian children, how many more Syrian children will be killed if the US takes military action against Syria? How many Syrian children will the US strikes kill? 400? More?

What is the REAL reason the US wants to take military action against Syria?
Syria doesn’t have oil as Iraq does. Syria has no resources that the US wants. So why strike Syria?

Could it be a proxy war for Israel? Is this part of the on-going plan to bring every country in the ME region to destruction?

  1. its about Iran. And its about destroying the nexus of alliance between Iran, Syria and Hezbolah. They are sending a message to Iran that they mean business about a strike. AIPAC incidentally is the one delivering the votes on Capitol Hill. This is the first time ever they have gone on the record supporting a measure that has “nothing” to do with Israel.
    so make no mistake. Iran is in the crosshairs. incidentally I am sure the Americans are happy to have the military back in the driver’s seat in Egypt.

  2. Iran is the target. They are sending a message to Iran that they mean business. and by striking Syria they are going after the Iran – Syria – Hezbollah nexus of alliance. AIPAC is the one who delivered the votes on Capitol Hill. Its the first time EVER they have gone “on the record” to support a measure that supposedly has NOTHING to do with Israel. Iran is in the crosshairs.
    incidentally I am sure the Americans are delighted to see the Military back in the driver’s seat in Egypt.

  3. Thanks for your comment. It makes sense. Can you provide a reference for Israel going on record to support a measure that has “nothing” to do with Israel? Obviously it has everything to do with Israel.
