Washington Pressures Russia for War Resolution on Syria
by Stephen Lendman
It doesn't surprise. Regime change was planned years ago. Washington tolerates no independent states. It doesn't matter if they're democratic, despotic or anything in between.
America seeks unchallenged world dominance. It's waging war on humanity to achieve it. It bears repeating. Syria's in the eye of the storm.
Washington's determined to oust Assad. It doesn't matter how faithfully he abides by the US/Russia chemical weapons disarmament agreement.
All indications show he's doing so. He's got every incentive to do it. He's got every reason to scrupulously avoid violating it.
It doesn't matter. Washington targets him for removal. Pretexts for war are easy to create. False flags are a US tradition. They've been used many times before.
They date from at least the mid-19th century. They were used repeatedly thereafter. Ghouta's August 21 gas attack was the latest example.
Assad had nothing to do with it. Insurgents bear full responsibility. Washington's Big Lie is pretext for war. Plans are firm. Timing alone changed.
Heavy-handed pressure is being brought to bear on Russia. Washington wants Security Council authorization for war. Passing a UN Charter Chapter VII one assures it.
Russia resolutely rejects doing so. It vetoed three previous attempts. It courageously resists US bullying. It's the last line of defense for world peace.
On September 22, Russia Today headlined "Lavrov: US pressuring Russia into passing UN resolution under Chapter 7," saying:
Washington wants Moscow to approve "military intervention in Syria, in exchange for American support of Syria's accession to OPCW, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said."
Lavrov appeared on Russia's Channel 1 Sunday Time program.
"Our American partners are starting to blackmail us," he said. " 'If Russia does not support a resolution under Chapter 7, then we will withdraw our support for Syria's entry into the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).' "
" 'This is a complete departure from what I agreed with Secretary of State John Kerry' " in Geneva, he stressed.
Chapter 7 assures war. Kerry knows it. So do Russian officials. Lavrov was uncharacteristically blunt saying:
"Our (Western) partners are blinded by (their) ideological mission for regime change. They cannot admit they have made another mistake."
"I am convinced that the West is doing this to demonstrate that they call the shots in the Middle East. This is a totally politicized approach."
"'Our Western partners are nervous as they understand: if Chapter VII is mentioned, this is a chance to get a justification from the UN Security Council for their unilateral actions."
"We advise them to save their nerves and adhere to the international law - the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), and not devise resolutions, which in fact put this convention on the back burner and put forward their personal or geopolitical and national ambitions."
Foreign intervention assures another Libya or Iraq. If Washington sought peace, it wouldn't prioritize Assad's ouster. It would work cooperatively with him.
It would halt all support for opposition forces. It would demand
