In an entirely hypocritical and factually incorrect official statement, Secretary of State John Kerry (of the Skull and Bones secret society) only one hour ago has made claims against the Syrian President Assad and the Syrian government in 2013 that are eerily similar to the claims made against Saddam Hussein and the government of Iraq in 2003.
Although Kerry made claims of “evidence” that would implicate the Assad government in the chemical weapons attack that took place in the Eastern Ghouta region of Syria, Kerry provided none of this evidence to the American people. Instead, he relied merely upon an emotional argument and the tug at the heartstrings provided by the videos of dead children and victims of chemical weapons which, all credible evidence suggests, were actually deployed at the hands of the death squads. As is typical, however, footage of dead children are being used in order to shore up American support for yet another foreign military adventure.
Describing the attacks as a “moral obscenity,” Kerry stated that the use of chemical weapons were long ago abandoned by the “civilized world,” vaguely evoking the typical sense of cultural superiority unfortunately ingrained in most of the Western world’s populations.
Surprisingly, Kerry also addressed those who claim that the “evidence” of chemical weapons usage was “contrived or fabricated,” stating that those individuals need to “check their moral conscience.” This statement comes despite the fact that numerous atrocities have been committed by the death squads and subsequently blamed on the Syrian government.
In addition, Kerry falsely claimed that Assad has stalled UN investigations and refused to comply with the UN investigators, despite clear evidence to the contrary.
Regardless, Kerry was absolutely clear that the United States holds the Syrian government responsible for the chemical weapons attacks and that any evidence or information to the contrary will be ignored or ridiculed. In what some might consider to be a contradictory statement, Kerry claimed that the UN will determine whether or not chemical weapons would be used. Yet, at the same time, Kerry strongly implied that the United States knew for sure who the responsible party was. Thus, one might be left wondering, if the UN does not know if chemical weapons were used, how does the United States know who the culprit is? If the UN determines that the chemical weapons were not used, does that mean that the UN needs to “check their moral conscience?”
Kerry made no mention of military force being used against Syria, only that he has been in touch with Foreign Ministers from around the world, most likely meaning those of Britain, France, and Israel, and that the President would soon make a decision as to the best course of action to take in response to the attack. Kerry steered clear of making any statements regarding military action, bombing, airstrikes, and the like, leaving the American public to sit and wait until President Obama addresses the nation later this week.
In the end, Kerry’s speech, itself reminiscent of Powell’s famous UN declaration of clear and convincing evidence of Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq was entirely transparent to any informed observer. While Kerry did not call for war outright, it was entirely evident to anyone who listened to the speech that the United States is marching toward war with yet another secular and sovereign Middle Eastern nation.
