The real objective is to draw Iran into the fight by messing with Syria, so the US can attack Iran and further control world oil supply and protect the petro-dollar.
Obama and the media keep referring to an imaginary red line that's been crossed and that they somehow are the self-anointed punishers of those who cross it. I call bullshit. The only "red line" that's been crossed is the United States' consistent historical failure to act in a decent and moral way toward the dignity and sovereignty of other nations and their people.
I'm sick of it.
I love you, America, but you suck.
