Next week the US Congress is to express its opinion on the reckless and staggering rush of Barack Obama as the President is pressuring the lawmakers to push through his decision to strike Syria. No details are known and they are changing all the time. The military officials have been asked to revise their plans 50 times since the Pentagon first began considering a «limited» action! The White House let know that the President is still pondering the prospect of expanding the list of targets to be hit by US missiles. These ill-boding fluctuations only feed into congressional uncertainty making the lawmakers doubt President Obama really knows what he is doing…  Continue reading

4 September 2013 — Global Research

“We have met the enemy and he is us.” (Walt Kelly, 1913-1973.)

US – Syria: «Great Plans» Going Awry

31.08.2013 | 00:00 | Andrei AKULOV
