Sarin Gas or Natural Gas? Reason for War in Syria

Now I see why the U.S. needs to put boots on the ground in Syria:
we need more vespene gas!

The more deadly and confusing the situation in Syria becomes, the further away we travel from addressing the true reason the world’s superpowers have suddenly taken great interest in the safety and security of the Syrian people. Thus far, it has been estimated that more than 100,000 Syrians have lost their lives during this civil war and the refugee situation has become dire. Yet despite such heavy civilian losses, it wasn’t until the world learned of a chemical weapons attack outside of Damascus on Aug. 21, 2013 that this war presented an imminent policy decision for the United States and other stakeholder nations in the Middle East.

The keen interest in Syria on the part of the U.S. that the mainstream media has largely overlooked has its roots in the unsuccessful occupation of Iraq. Chemical weapons might be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, but U.S. policy is being dictated by opportunities squandered over the past decade. Once again, all roads lead back to Baghdad.

As far as the attack itself, the nonprofit organization Human Rights Watch released a report on September 10 concluding: “telltale evidence… suggests that Syrian government troops launched rockets carrying chemical warheads into the Damascus suburbs.” However, there have been conflicting reports from the region that indicate the weapons may have been of Saudi origin and deployed by rebel fighters.

    Generally it is just about regional control. And all the perks that that brings.

    All those billions of dollars “wasted” in Iraq, as the Chinese dash in to snap up the carrion. The “great” military complex’s objectives, “done in by unions”. “Done in by unions”, a phrase that almost brings a smile to the lips, a bounce to the step and hope to the hopeless.

    Except, I suppose it could be used to describe what happened to Detroit as well.

    Now THAT is an interesting article. I guess Americans’ being-too-giant-of-assholes finally caught up with ourselves when Iraqi unions vetoed contracts with American oil companies.

    As for a premise for the Syrian war being the prevention of a natural gas pipeline from Iran to Europe that would compete with US overseas exports of natural gas, that seems a bit flimsy.

    Nice starcraft reference though, lol!

      The only reason to get vespene gas is nukes.
