Read this… it has plenty of links and vids that you should see. American neoliberals, both Republicans and Democrats, brought this destruction to Syria. They hated Syria for being a secular semi-socialist state. They hated Libya for being a socialist state. They hated Federal Yugoslavia for being a socialist state. They hated Iraq under Saddam for being a secular semi-socialist state. They hated the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan for being a socialist state. There’s a pattern, isn’t there? American neoliberals HATE socialism… especially, Republican rightwing filth (and this includes so-called “paleocons”, too… their guru is the oligarch-enabler Buchanan). No decent person can have anything to do with neoliberalism, not even more “benign” outgrowths such as the so-called American Solidarity Party (they’re for the rich… that makes them neoliberals as much as the rest are).
Look at the wrecked Syrian cathedral. Neoliberalism did that (with a strong assist from the Israelis, KSA, and Gulf states… strange bedfellows, no?). Look at the Taliban… neoliberalism brought them in, they hated socialism so (yes… they’re Zbig’s kids from the wrong side of the blanket). Look at Bush II’s invasion of Iraq… neoliberalism did that. Look at the murder of Gaddafi… neoliberalism did that (that was a Clinton/Obama hit job). Look at the Easter bombing of Belgrade (the Clinton’s both chortled at that)… neoliberalism did that. There’s no more evil ideology afoot than neoliberalism… American “conservatives” are its most strident proponents. That’s why the Church shouldn’t have anything to do with such filth… HH doesn’t… it’s mostly American rightwing rebels who are trying to make us cheerleaders for neoliberalism. Look at Syria… it’s a socialist state. Why should we try to destroy them just so that bloated oligarchs can steal even more? The USA hasn’t fought a war of defence since the War of 1812. All of its wars have been either wars of aggression (including the murderous wars against the American Natives) or foreign wars without reference to American interest, save for World War II, which seems to be the exception that proves the rule.
I salute the Syrian people. As for us… as Americans, we’re sheeple. In the last election, the major parties gave us two ravening neoliberals… both warmongers, both greedsters, both haters of ordinary folk and lovers of the rich Establishment (indeed, both candidates moved in the same social circles and were close acquaintances). Are we in for a long night? Well… Syria isn’t in for that, thanks to Russia, Iran, and Hizbullah. Have we turned the corner? Is the American Moloch cornered? Maybe… maybe not. I’ll say this… the next four years aren’t going to be easy for working folk, Trump will see to that.
Keep the image of President Assad and the joy of Christmas that he brought in your heart… it’ll help you endure during the long oligarch occupation and rapine that lies ahead of us…
