Pipelines, Tomahawks, and the Syrian Gulf of Tonkin

Right off the bat, you may have realized that The Gulf of Tonkin is nowhere near Syria.  But if you’re familiar with The Gulf of Tonkin Incident from 1964, in which the American public was duped by its government into believing that its Navy was fired upon by North Vietnam forces – a lie which resulted in the deaths of 58,000+ U.S. Military Boys, and several untold, uncounted, superfluous millions of Vietnamese, Laotians, and Cambodians – you too may be doubting the official U.S. Government/MSM story about a recent sarin gas war crime, which allegedly took place in Syria.  The built-in lie-detector in the pit of my stomach has been flying off the charts, as Lester Holt and his multi-network cadres in lies and deceit carefully recite the C.I.A.-issued song and dance, nightly, in four part harmony, each wearing his best ‘serious’ face, and with feeling:  “The attack on Syrian civilians in Idlib was carried out by the Assad Regime and Russia.”…or words to that effect.  Over and over and over and over again, ad infinitum, to the extent that it begins to interfere with all the important stuff:  Namely sports, car thefts, kidnappings, and more localized murders  Did I mention that no proof is ever offered?

And now Don Trump tells invites “all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed” in Syria.  Pretty funny stuff, Don, considering the U.S.A. NEVER intervenes in the affairs of other countries for “humanitarian” reasons.  When the Tomahawk Missiles are flying, they are not following a trail of blood and death nor truth and justice…their path follows the money.  Syria; nothing but a thimbleful of semen in the 20-year-old wet-dreams of Cheney and his gang of thieves and thugs at The Project for a New American Century (PNAC).  Far from being fired to end the slaughter and bloodshed, U.S. Tomahawk Missiles are out to complete the transformation of Syria into a pile of death and debris.  Like Afghanistan, like Iraq, and like Libya.  Wars are no longer waged with winning in mind.  If you break it, you own it…and the U.S. Military’s goal is to break Syria and gain control of its strategic location, its oil, and its gas.  To own it, my friends.

Anybody else think that footage of the largely discredited, Isis-friendly, C.I.A.-stooge White Helmets “saving” child victims of the alleged sarin gas attack was a little strange?  Those Academy Award-winning White Knights must be supermen.  Amazing how they handled those dead and dying children with bare hands, in an attempt to save their lives.  With little to no regard for their personal safety.  Few gas masks, no gloves…touching the dying and certainly becoming contaminated with sarin…a death sentence.  Wonder how many are now dead?  Anybody like to wager that they’re all just fine?  I’d just about guarantee you that the heroes will be up on stage at next year’s Oscar Event, to accept another award for yet another grim fairy tale.  That or accepting The Nobel Peace Prize.

The U.S.A., its European lapdogs, and Israel would sorely like to close the books on the Pipeline War they have been waging in Syria since 1949.  Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who’s studied recent Syrian history extensively tells us:

The CIA began its active meddling in Syria in 1949—barely a year after the agency’s creation. Syrian patriots had declared war on the Nazis, expelled their Vichy French colonial rulers and crafted a fragile secularist democracy based on the American model. But in March of 1949, Syria’s democratically elected president, Shukri-al-Kuwaiti, hesitated to approve the Trans Arabian Pipeline, an American project intended to connect the oil fields of Saudi Arabia to the ports of Lebanon via Syria. In his book, Legacy of Ashes, CIA historian Tim Weiner recounts that in retaliation, the CIA engineered a coup, replacing al-Kuwaiti with the CIA’s handpicked dictator, a convicted swindler named Husni al-Za’im. Al-Za’im barely had time to dissolve parliament and approve the American pipeline before his countrymen deposed him, 14 weeks into his regime.

Of course, this was only the beginning of a struggle which has spanned my lifetime, and of which, as an uninformed American Citizen, I’ve been largely unaware.  More recently, in 2000, Qatar proposed a ten billion dollar natural gas pipeline through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, and Turkey.  In 2009, Assad announced that the pipeline would not be allowed a route through Syria, in deference to the wishes of his favored ally, Russia.  The flow of Qatar gas to Europe would have cut into Putin’s business.  And that, boys and girls, is why the allegorical shit is hitting the fan in Syria.  That is why Trump has just ramped up Wall Street’s war on Assad.  That is why Lester Holt wears the same nightly, pale, blank, lying facial expression, which adorned the face of Colin Powell when he told his tall tales and blatant lies about Saddam Hussein’s Weapons of Mass Destruction.

And so time marches on in The U.S.A.  Pearl Harbor was no surprise to F.D.R. nor the war-hungry businessmen who surrounded him, and so my Dad got drafted and sent into the bloody waters of The Pacific.  The Gulf of Tonkin lies justified The Vietnam War.  The sordid story of 9-11 may never be revealed, but it is clear that the official story was as bogus as a $20 Rolex Watch, and the result has been justifiable and endless wars in the Mideast and Africa.  Gaddafi had grand plans to free Africa from Empire’s heavy hand, so he was falsely and obtusely accused of some undefinable crimes, summarily and disgracefully murdered, and Libya reduced to rubble while Hillary Clinton cackled for joy.  And the sarin gas attack at Idlib is now being used as a welcome mat to World War III.  How will Putin respond?  Will a handful of Satan II Missiles wipe out all U.S. population centers sometime before the Summer of 2017?  Stay tuned for the next exciting chapter.
