Bombardment of Syria is a flagrant violation of international law


WHAT IS OBAMA BRAGGING ABOUT WHEN HE TALKS OF THE “COALITION” THAT IS PARTICIPATING IN THE BOMBARDMENT OF SYRIA?  Obama stated today: “America is proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with these nations on behalf of our common security. The strength of this coalition makes clear to the world that this is not just America’s fight alone.” Who are these five governments? Saudi Arabia, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Bahrain. Not a democratic one among them. The government of Bahrain is notorious for its violation of human rights. The Obama administration blames the Syrian government for the ISIS’ positions in the country’s north: “The Syrian regime has shown that it cannot and will not confront these very safe havens effectively itself,” How incredibly deceptive. The U.S. has provided material support for those who are lodged in those “safe havens.” It hasn’t been for lack of effort or interest that the Syrian government hasn’t been able to defeat these rebels, but rather because of the outside interference by Washington and its allies (hardly any of which can be considered democratic). The U.S. decision to bomb Syria without requesting permission from the Syrian government is a flagrant violation of international law.

You don't seem to be aware that the Baathists are besides themselves with pleasure over the air attack, especially since al-Nusra is getting hammered as well.
