By Gary Gambill, published 16/1/2013

As the Syrian civil war drags on, mainstream media and policy wonks have increasingly been pointing fingers at the United States.

Frequent strains of national-centrism and anti-narcissism cause Americans to blame America for all the world's problems. As the author says this is apparently due to what America does or doesn't do.

http://tarpley.net/ Webster Tarpley was in Syria a few months ago.The USA/NATO are fighting proxy wars using the likes of Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

There are two reasons for the overthrow of Assad.First they are a major ally of Iran whom the West Military industrial Complex want to monopolise more oil.More oil monopolies mean higher fuel costs for us.Second is the Russian Naval Port which is of strategic military importance.

When American diplomats were killed recently at the Syrian Embassy after the UTube video the Islamists didnít like, I was watching the Late Night News and Hilary Clinton came on and said to The Syrian Rebels , ďCome On! we just gave you 2billion dollars to help your cause.Ē It was news to me that Amercia had given them 2billions dollars. They seem to have kept that pretty quiet. Havenít heard anything about it since.

I donít know what side to take in this conflict. Some of this warfare in Europe goes back centuries and there are old ethnic and tribal loyalties that still exist from those times. The Serbs and the Russians are one example of ancient tribal connections. Maybe why Putin takes Assaud's side in this, who knows?
Unless you care to wade through pages of history.

Anyway the so called Arab Spring in Egypt has only re-installed a fundamentalist Muslim regime. One of whom recently wanted to cover the Pyramids in Wax to obscure their visibility from tourists. Whom he said were being sinful for looking at them. This is progress? And a New Spring? I donít think so.

I say to all the people out there especially Western Hippie types like Julian Assange that America is not the world's Nanny and cant race in to save countries from committing their own acts of Self- destruction. Wars have raged across human history non-stop, and no-one has ever been able to stop them, least of all the United Nations and America. To date they have not been able to prevent any one of the massacres and killings that have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands before they could even talk it over and mobilize peace troops.

A truth that these silly hippy and academic types fail to
realize is that they are powerless to control the nature of mankind and they are pretty arrogant to think that they! of all the people
in history, can change it in their short lifetimes by being idealistic.
Arrogant and suprematist in their belief in their own superiority indeed.
