The War Drums are Beating

By Paul Rosenberg

Free-Man's Perspective

April 10, 2014

Last year, lots of powerful groups tried to get a war going in Syria. It seemed to me that the necessary ground work hadn’t been done and that they might not be able to pull it off. Thankfully, that’s how it happened.

And by “necessary ground work,” I’m not referring to the military operators the US government had in Syria for a year or two prior; I’m talking about making the American populace eager for a new war. That’s a crucial and often ignored factor.

What has been catching my eye the past week or so is a new series of efforts to stir up war fever in the US, and I’d like to give them some coverage. Since the mainstream ‘news’ in the US has become almost completely trivialized and neutered, I think it’s important for the rest of us to fill the gap as best we can.

my question is whom is going to rebuild Syria after the civil war ends?

Russia doesn't give a big fat rats rear end about the Syrian people and we can't afford to rebuild everything?

this was a poor country to begin with and now with most of the infrastructure going those people will have nothing.

but his wife will still go shopping in paris if she is still alive after this nightmare '

muslims killing muslims just like its always been
