Here’s hoping this isn’t as inevitable as it’s beginning to seem:

Chinese state media have accused US President Barack Obama of planning to use Syria’s chemical weapons as an excuse for intervening militarily.

The state news agency, Xinhua, was responding to a warning from Mr Obama that Syria would be crossing a “red line” if it tried to use such weapons.

“Once again, Western powers are digging deep for excuses to intervene militarily,” it said.

China and Russia have blocked attempts to impose UN sanctions on Syria.

One Response to Syria

    Obama will not send ground troops into Syria. Nor will he sanction US bombing of Syria. Even though the “Smart Power” folks (Hillary, et al) and the neo-cons (Zionists) are pressuring him to do so. Obama is in the middle of an election and he is required to ‘sound’ tough to keep the warmongers at bay. Syria is in the middle of a civil war that is begining to spread into Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq. It’s fast developing into a sectarian war. It’s the Shi’ite against the Sunni. Iran againts Saudi Arabia. Bye, bye Isreal. Hope you don’t need oil in any form to live your life.
