The rulers are banging their wardrums and the cacophony of lies from the warmongering Nobel peace prizewinning charlatan of civil rights, Obama, continues. The tried and true lies are getting repeated in the press of “Weapons of Mass Destruction”. This dejavu would be a complete farce if the lives at stake weren’t so tragic.
So while, Obama, the master of doublespeak and deportations who hasn’t done jack squat to stem the tide of racist police and vigilante killings like Trayvon Martin, Shantel Davis, Oscar Grant, and Ramarley Graham, makes a speech today about civil rights, he’s also getting ready to bomb and kill innocent workers.
The US is in a jam as the side they chose to win in the proxy war to oust Russia from the Middle East has now entered into their endgame in a rapid slippery slope to losing. Russia has already defeated the US once this century during the Georgian war where Russia trounced the US’ puppet’s forces; the US is desperate not to lose to Russia yet again. The US had their cronies in Saudi Arabia try to bribe Russia to abandon Assad, but their strategic military base and control of present and future pipelines are too valuable. It is doubtful that Russia will allow a UN mandate to pass that the US could use to follow the Libyan blueprint for mass destruction and regime change.
Illustrating the massive racism of the US ruling class, they are appearing to celebrate the legacy of Dr. MLK, yet they are ramping up for war and to kill Middle Eastern workers. Imperialism is the name of their game, and deception of the US working class is how they play it.
Another complication for the US is the fact that Russia has a sizable amount of forces in the area. Russia experimented with several weapons against US forces when they first entered into Iraq, including a missile responsible for the first M-1 battle tank death and possibly hand held satellite jamming technology. Iran allegedly hacked a drone and landed it. It is possible that Syria may have the ability to counter or intercept an attack by the US. Even if they don’t stop it entirely, should the attack on Syria cause US casualties, it may erode whatever confidence the working class has left in Obama while weakening their already frigid support for the war. This would potentially ensnare the US into a ground war in the Middle East while they’re desperate to engage China in Asia. As noted many times in Challenge, the recent drawdowns in Afghanistan and the exit from Iraq were not acts of peace, but a repositioning of forces to check Chinese imperialism in Asia and Africa.
On the other hand, Syria and Russia may allow a token surgical strike that takes out some weapons, ammunition, and possibly aircraft. This would allow the US to save face and for Syria’s forces to finish mopping up the rebels and thousands of transnational Al Qaeda Jihadists.
The worst-case scenario is that this conflict can quickly escalate to the Armageddon of World War 3. The US parallels the dying empires of The UK and France as they try to clutch on to their neo colonial empire. Should things escalate, millions and millions of workers will join the over hundred thousand that have already died in the proxy war. Yet, the capitalists do not care how much of our blood they have to shed to preserve their empire and their profits. Imperialist war was the gestation of the first Communist revolution. The Progressive Labor Party will do all we can to ensure that Communist revolution happens in whatever scenario, Armageddon or otherwise, that occurs in Syria.
