    Now, could anything be more obvious than that the phony Israel-Palestinian peace talks were set up to pave the way for war against Syria? The US has been spoiling for this ever since the very beginning when Clinton said “Assad has to go” before hardly any blood was spilt. And after engineering the bloody coup in Egypt, does anybody believe this has anything to do with the US inability to tolerate human rights abuses? Isn’t it clear by now that the US and Israel want Assad gone because they want Hezbollah cut off from its weapons source so that it can’t act as a deterrent to an attack on Iran? And where does it say that Iran can’t have nuclear weapons when Israel and the US have them, and having them is the only defense against these two aggressive states? “Colin Powell lied and a million Iraqis died.” Let’s see what kind of death toll Obama and Netanyahu are able to achieve.
