He ordered an expanded hit list. He wants more targets struck. US and French warplanes will supplement cruise missiles. Reports suggest long range B-2 and B-52 bombing.

Managed news misinformation substitutes for truth and full disclosure. Facts trump propaganda. Palestinians are on their own. Their legitimate government’s excluded from talks.

Imagine holding them with one side denied participation. Imagine a sham process. It’s planned. It’s baked in the cake. The outcome’s predictable. Failure and betrayal define it. Continue reading

SteveLendmanBlog – Stephen Lendman – Another Anti-Assad False Flag – 13 May 2013
