Washington marching for Syria war’

The US and its allies would continue their plan for a military intervention in Syria even without the UN Security Council approval, a political analyst says.

"Washington and key NATO partners plan intervention with or without Security Council cover," Stephen Lendman wrote in an article "Heading for War on Syria" on Global Research.

"Doing so violates fundamental international law that prohibits interfering in other countries' internal affairs, except in self-defense if attacked," he added.

On Saturday, Russia and China vetoed a UN draft resolution on Syria which called for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to resign.

"Plans are longstanding. With or without UN support, they're coming," Lendman predicted.

The analyst noted that the Western powers are trying to replicate Libya's model in Syria, which is the scene of violence since last March.

Lendman believes the recent military interventions are part of Washington's "New Middle East" project, which is aimed to control North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia to Russia and China's borders.

"For over a decade, regime change plans targeted Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Syria, and other countries outside the region," he said.

The author also described the US as the number one country across the world for causing human tragedies.

"Since WW II, no combination of nations caused more slaughter, destruction, and human misery globally that America. Moreover, Washington won't tolerate democracy at home or abroad," Lendman said.

"Long-suffering Afghans, Iraqis, Libyans, Somalis, Bahrainis, Yemenis, Palestinians, and many others elsewhere understand the horrors when America intervenes. So do Syrians. They abhor Washington led meddling in their internal affairs and want no part of it," he added.
