Propaganda has always been with us.
Graham Anderson

Syria has three things that the West doesn’t want:

  1. A sovereign bank that both the IMF and World Bank want removed. Not just BTW: Syria has no IMF debt.
  2. Massive oil and gas reserves (particularly gas)
  3. A desire to not be dependent on the West. There are two proposed gas pipelines through Syria. One supported by the US, one supported by Russia/Iran. Syria chose the latter.

Soon after the decision in (3), our demonization of Assad and calls for his overthrow began. Occam’s razor indeed.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
