Putin and Obama: a comparative irony of the “dove” and the “hawk” Part II
They have yet to settle the on-going war in Iraq and Afghanistan plus the continuous drone attacks in Pakistan and Yemen, and now, they are so agitated and so bloody eager to intervene on Syria.
It defies the law of logic to say the least.
Does the US know the dire repercussions and the deadly consequences of their latest intended military adventure?
I concur with President Putin’s analysis that:
“The potential strike by the United States against Syria, despite strong opposition from many countries and major political and religious leaders, including the pope, will result in more innocent victims and escalation, potentially spreading the conflict far beyond Syria’s borders. A strike would increase violence and unleash a new wave of terrorism. It could undermine multilateral efforts to resolve the Iranian nuclear problem and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and further destabilize the Middle East and North Africa. It could throw the entire system of international law and order out of balance.”
Indeed, if the US proceeded with their folly and madness, the consequences are blatantly grim. The Syrian attack will lead to a regional war and said war might lead to another world war to the prejudice of humanity as a whole.
The People of the World must stand up as One; in preventing at all cost the eruption of this war.
War is against the interest of Humanity; hence we all must declare war on war!
