Carefully covered up activity by the Obama Regime in the last days of the Obomber's lame duck presidency indicates that the House of Representatives (Congress) passed a resolution for a Syrian No Fly Zone .... thus provoking war with Russia. Here is the entire report and I will have my reaction in comments to follow:
Soon after the presidential election, key warmongers in Congress began formulating plans to make increased conflict a near certainty, complete with the kind of propaganda peddled before the Iraq attack. While everyone was distracted by the election of Trump, six representatives took advantage of the lame-duck session and suspended “normal rules” to bring us H.R. 5732.
As reported by Consortium News:
“Late in the day, on Nov. 15, one week after the U.S. elections, the lame-duck Congress convened in special session with normal rules suspended so the House could pass House Resolution 5732, the “Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act” calling for intensifying the already harsh sanctions on Syria, assessing the imposition of a “no fly zone” inside Syria (to prevent the Syrian government from flying) and escalating efforts to press criminal charges against Syrian officials…
Most strikingly, the resolution calls for evaluating and developing plans for the United States to impose a “no fly zone” inside Syria, a sovereign nation, an act of war that also would violate international law as an act of aggression. It also could put the U.S. military in the position of shooting down Russian aircraft.”
The suspension of rules procedure is supposed to be used for “non-controversial” bills such as naming Post Offices, but this small group of lawmakers used it to pass a drastically important bill. The blatant abuse of power shows the desperation in the neocon ranks.
Desperate to start WWIII in the dying days of the Obama Regime....the lame duck US democratic congress passed a "House Rule" giving the government permission to set up a "No Fly Zone" In Syria. The US doesn't even bother with "fig leaf" pretexts anymore....no more "weapons of mass destruction" or "gassing his own people". NO. Now they use an archaic form of legislation, meant for routine housekeeping, to start their wet dream Armageddon...before it's too late. The so-called peoples' "representatives" and the criminally complicit Main$tream Media conceal this pernicious atrocity under a blanket of post election and "Black Friday" holiday distractions.
No wonder Putin and Erdogan are up late, burning the midnight oil talking on the telephone to one another these days. Trying to save the planet from the "frothing blood at the mouth" psychopaths infesting the halls of US power is a 24/7 job. While Americans are dining on Turkey....their Ziofascist government is cooking their goose!
