As the push for war against Syria continues and as the President prepares a propaganda assault against the distracted American public regarding the Administration’s assertion that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has used chemical weapons on his own people, many informed observers are having flashbacks to Iraq in 2003.

Such a comparison between the Iraq invasion and the current push to attack Syria is not without warrant. In fact, the parallels between the events leading up to the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq and the planned repeat against Syria not only exist but are strikingly similar. Thankfully, however, the thirst for war which was so present in the minds of the American public in 2003 seems to have waned slightly due to a culmination of apathy and disastrous results of foreign military adventures in recent years.

Nevertheless, the propaganda push to gain control over the hearts and minds of the American people continues in full force, with Skull and Bones John Kerry repeating the same tired claims of convincing evidence and incontrovertible proof of Assad’s use of chemical weapons while, at the same time, refusing to show such proof to Congress or the American people.

Of course, whatever “proof” that has been shown has done nothing to bolster the Administration’s claims. In fact, the documents presented to lawmakers have actually raised more questions than they have answered.
