Why We Attacked Syria
As Ron Powell likes to say, "Follow the money!"
In this case, both in 2017 and yesterday, it leads right back to both the Republican's and Democrat's corporate masters!
"Raytheon stock surged Friday morning, after 59 of the company’s Tomahawk missiles were used to strike Syria in Donald Trump’s first major military operation as President.
Trump ordered the airstrike on the Syrian government Thursday night in retaliation for a deadly chemical weapons attack on civilians earlier this week that killed as many as 100 people. The U.S. blamed the attack on the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad."
BTW, the "Syrian chemical weapons attack", that OUR attack was in "retaliation" for, was disproved...
So a year ago we attacked Syria for the use of chemical weapons, that has now been proven to be a false flag, and Big Defense got a $5 BILLION DOLLAR payday.
NOW, we attacked Syria, ONE FUCKING DAY before the an international team of experts from OPCW arrive to inspect the site, and Big Defense is going to get an even BIGGER payday.
...BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!!!
Trump, in his speech yesterday, lauded our Israel and Saudi Arabia Allies for being willing to "help" deal with the terrible Syrian's use of chemical weapons ::roll eyes::.
Just one little problem with that...
Both Saudi Arabia and Israel use chemical weapons to attack civilians!
"Since 2015, Saudi Arabia has bombed the entire nation to pieces, starved its citizens via a blockade, caused a deadly cholera outbreak, and allegedly attacked innocent people by using illegal chemical weapons such as white phosphorus. The United Nations has repeatedly said the attacks amount to crimes against humanity."
Oh, and a bit farther down... the money shot!
"According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Nelson has received $172,400 from the defense industry over the course of his career."
"The Israeli military has denied using white phosphorus shells in the Gaza offensive, although an investigation by The Times has revealed that dozens of Palestinians in Gaza have sustained serious injuries from the substance, which burns at extremely high temperatures.”
Get it yet?
It has been well document and proven that our "Allies" (who allow Big Defense to "earn" BILLIONS), use chemical weapons extensively.
It has NOT been proven that Syria has used chemical weapons.
What's the difference???
