the leaked stratfor emails

the leaked stratfor emails reveal the war on Syria looks a lot like the one on Nicaragua 30 years ago..."the idea 'hypothetically' is to commit guerrilla attacks, assassination campaigns, try to break the back of the Alawite forces, elicit collapse from within."
Thanks for bringing Conn Hallinan's common sense to this insanity... Vince Hallinan was the Lawyer who got my challenge to the earlier assassination program docketed in the Supreme Court (to have certiorari denied)

The only country to blame for

The only country to blame for building fundamentalist aggression into a monster in Syria is the US. Most notably the funding and training of Al-Qaeda in the Afghan war in the 1980's and starting with the deplorable Zbigniew Brzezinski. And you can even go back to US/UK the overthrow of Iran's secular democracy in 1953 for what else is not news: oil. If the US deep state and empire never existed the middle east would be a relatively peaceful place and 911 would have never occurred.
