“(The US) has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.” – Harold Pinter, playwright in his 2005 Nobel Prize acceptance speech.
[Publisher’s Note: There should be more discussion about Australia’s support for the war against the Syrian people.
In the terrible fighting in the Damascus suburb of Yarmouk, the Palestinian leadership have stopped assisting ISIS and al-Nusra and started cooperating with the Syrian Arab Army – but again, except for Hamas who are still fighting for the Qataris and the terrorists.]
Here are some excerpts from and interview with Virginia State Senator Richard Black with Pravda RU about a solution for Syria:
(Quote:) The first step is for the U.S. to stop arming and training terrorists to invade Syria – a neutral, nonbelligerent nation. All nations attacking Syria are doing so in clear violation of the Law of War. The war in Syria would have been nothing but a minor uprising had other nations not thrown gasoline on the fire. It is in everyone’s interest to end the war in Syria and restore peace to the Mideast.
Our (the US) policy of “regime change” has been a disaster of historic proportions. Nothing good has come from it. Whether, Kosovo, Iraq, Libya or Syria, people die when international elites play games of war with neutral countries.(Unquote)
(Quote:) The so-called “moderate rebels” whom we are training often slip quickly into the ranks of ISIS and al Nusra – the Syrian branch of al Qaeda. They have become one of the most powerful and threatening armies on earth. We must recognize the danger that our actions pose toward all stable countries.
The U.S. actually pays the salaries of the mercenaries we call “moderates.”
We must cut American funding for all mercenaries in Syria. Western nations conducting the air war against ISIS should request permission from Syria whenever they overfly its sovereign territory. They should start coordinating air actions with Syrian forces–who are the most powerful enemies of ISIS. If ISIS were attacked with a coordinated air-ground campaign, they could be rolled back much more quickly.
But this can only be done by cooperating with Syria.
We should provide intelligence and material support to Syrian forces.
The U.S. must stop transferring advanced arms to ISIS, al Qaeda and al Nusra through third parties like Saudi Arabia.
This is happening today and it is a criminal violation, just as though we sent the weapons directly to the terrorists.(Unquote)
