What did Iran have to do with these events in Syria? Nothing.
Why not make the most out of the current bloodthirsty neocon moment? Why not launch simultaneous attacks on Syria and Iran and maybe even start World War III with Russia?
“Former CIA Director James Woolsey said Thursday the United States should strike Iran’s nuclear operations as part of any military effort against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad because he is “kind of Iran’s poodle mainly in that part of the world.”
“I don’t think there’s a good answer by talking,” Woolsey, 75, who served former President Bill Clinton, told Jake Tapper on CNN, regarding President Donald Trump’s options in the recent chemical attack. “Assad does not care what we do.
“Russia is not going to change its support — and Iran is certainly not going to change its support of Assad. …
“This at least gives us an opportunity to do something that is tied to the Syrian events, and that would be to use force against the Iranian nuclear program.”
He said diplomacy, or even involving the United Nations, is not going to be effective — and that is why military action is necessary.”
Who is James Woolsey?
Oh, he used to be the head of the CIA whose “intelligence” we are taking as gospel. We also have it on the word of Israel and Erdogan in Turkey that Assad used sarin gas. Years ago, he was saying we would “turn our attention to the Syrias and Libyas and other rogue states.”
