The more things change… the more that they stay the same. Big Money is putting beaucoup bucks into the pockets of politicians. Big Lobbies are doing the same. However, we needn’t despair… we can fight them, if only we pick up our courage and STAND UP…
Aleksei Pushkov, the head of the RF Gosduma Committee on International Affairs, assumed that the Obama administration plans a massive attack on Syria to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, not a limited military operation, saying, “Unlike the popular myth that Obama personally doesn’t want this war, I believe Obama has now changed his stance and now actively supports a massive strike on Syria, not just an attack”. Pushkov said that he gets the idea that Obama has now adopted the positions of John McCain, who was his rival in the 2008 election, noting, “In any case, the idea of an unlimited massive strike aimed at destroying the military potential of the Assad government was proposed by McCain. He’s promoted it in the US government for a long time. Essentially, I get the impression that the Obama administration is following this scenario”.
Pushkov believed that the efforts to support the militants would intensify simultaneously with the bombing of Syria, but the US government has no plans to send regular troops to Syria and “the war will be conducted at a distance”. He assumes that the situation would develop according to the Libyan scenario, stating, “If one needs a comparison, we can compare the situation to the operation in Libya. They’ll do everything to make the Assad government unable to conduct military action, and, if a massive attack occurs, as happened in Libya, they will change the régime. A week ago, Obama said that his purpose wasn’t to change the régime, but to use a restricted strike, to send a message to Assad not to use chemical weapons; now, it’s obvious that the administration is moving away from that stance and it’s gravitating towards an attempt to overthrow Assad, the goal the Americans set themselves two years ago”.

The USA is mulling a strike at Syria at the behest of Israel and Saudi-Arabia, neither of whom have a sterling human rights record. The Israel Lobby holds the spectre of massively-funding opponents over congressmen’s heads. The Saudi Lobby (John McCain is a particularly-obsequious pawn of it) holds the menace of massive OPEC price hikes over the USA. That’s why Obama, Kerry, Boehner, and McCain are so warlike. Let’s be blunt… there are more (and more massive) human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states than there ever was in Syria (or Iraq). My belief is that the Saudis wish to destroy the Christians in Syria (as they did in Iraq, using the Americans as their surrogates).
If you’re an Orthodox Christian, you MUST oppose this wicked drive to war. It’s our duty before God and mankind. The USA is a rogue state, out of control. We must stop the madness before it gets out of hand. Now, THAT’S Pro-Life!
