Omar Mateen & the US State Dept: Two peas in a pod?
Here we go again. The American military-industrial complex is once again dropping really broad hints that stepping up its illegal "war" on Syria would be really really nice. They are hoping that it might be a lot nicer than their recent illegal "wars" on Libya, Iraq, Ukraine and Afghanistan -- but don't hold your breath.
In a charmingly blood-thirsty article in the New York Times entitled, "51 U.S. Diplomats Urge Strikes Against Assad in Syria," we are told that almost the entire U.S. State Department is rooting and hoping and praying for a chance to bomb the Hell out of Damascus. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/17/world/middleeast/syria-assad-obama-airstrikes-diplomats-memo.html?_r=0
That idea sounds just about as stupid as the one that Omar Mateen recently had. Apparently someone at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando truly pissed Mateen off. Mateen went out and bought a bunch of guns. Mateen blasted the Hell out of that nightclub in Orlando. Mateen killed a whole bunch of innocent people. Problem solved.
And apparently someone in downtown Damascus has truly pissed off 51 State Department "diplomats" too. 51 State Department "diplomats" are now planning to go out and buy a bunch of guns. 51 State Department "diplomats" plan to blast the Hell out of President Assad's government. 51 State Department "diplomats" plan to kill a whole bunch of innocent people. Problem solved.
