Nations aligning behind Syria lie are driving world towards nuclear war
True to form, the Turnbull government has rushed to endorse the latest fabricated pretext for war on Syria. Australia does not have an independent foreign policy, but takes direction from the USA and UK, which along with Syria’s former colonial master France have pursued regime change in Syria since 2011. The government, which constantly harps on about the “rules-based order” and “rule of law”, has no evidence Syria is responsible for a chemical weapons attack, because there is none, but nevertheless has endorsed the demands of Anglo-American neoconservatives and liberal interventionists for an attack on Syria in violation of international law. In doing so, they are putting every Australian at risk of nuclear war, as an attack on Syria risks a direct confrontation with Russia, which has made clear that there was no chemical attack by the Assad government, and therefore it won’t tolerate an attack that puts Russian service personnel at risk.
In the 11 April issue of the CEC’s weekly Australian Alert Service magazine, Richard Bardon summarises the latest Syria chemical weapons attack misinformation campaign in “Will Trump start WWIII over the least plausible false flag yet?” Click here to read a PDF copy.
The target of this misinformation is Trump himself, who just prior to the claimed attack on 7 April had repeatedly said he intended to withdraw US forces from Syria. Trump was elected on the promise of ending regime-change wars, as the American people had grown sick of the lies and blood. This isn’t unique to the USA, and is one of the factors in the public support for UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a consistent opponent of regime change. But the “war party” factions of the USA and UK, and their corrupted intelligence agencies from which Australia takes orders via the Five Eyes spying apparatus, are determined to stop Trump or anyone else derailing their agenda. When the Australian government weighs in, it serves nothing except to present to
Trump a united front of US “allies” who are pushing him to war, not in our national interest, but in the interests of preserving the power of the war party.
The American, British and Australian people must see through this and demand, once and for all, an end to the regime-change agenda that has brought the world to the brink of nuclear war.
