WAR PIGS: GOP’s Boehner, McCain, Graham conspire with Obama’s globalist push war in Syria


“Generals gathered in their masses just like witches at black masses

Evil minds that plot destruction sorcerer of death’s construction
In the fields the bodies burning as the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind poisoning their brainwashed minds.”
War Pigs – Black Sabbath

As the world appears to be on the brink of another war, I can’t help but be reminded of the Black Sabbath song, War Pigs, an anti-war metal anthem which was written for their 1970 album Paranoid, packed with a brutal honesty that is rarely seen in popular music, describing the corrupt and disingenuous leaders that have rigged the plot against humanity by selling us into war.

In those days, the Vietnam War was well underway, sparking a deafening outcry among youthful anti-war protesters, leading directly to a rise in “poet warriors” bent on exposing the false premise that built the Vietnam War.

The war-machine of yesterday seems to be on repeat, as the change agents of today are pushing for another false war, attempting to blind public perception in their unhealthy pursuit of blood and oil…

Speaker of the House John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and Arizona Senator John McCain, have come out in full force, supporting Obama’s globalist push for war in Syria, a war that has no stated goal, timeline or fact-based reason for a conflict.

Sen. John McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham warned that “the consequences would be catastrophic” if Congress voted against a military strike against President Bashar al-Assad.

Speaker Boehner, along with Senators Graham and McCain, expressed his support  Obama’s “call for action” in Syria, stating:

“The use of these weapons has to be responded to and only the United States has the capability and capacity to stop Assad and to warn others around the world that this type of behavior is not going to be tolerated.”

Continuing, Boehner added:

This is something that the United States as a country needs to do. I’m going to support the president’s call for action.”

Similarly, McCain also described his support for Obama and his globalist regime changers, examining the escalation in Syria, as he appeared on NBC’s Today Show:

The Free Syrian Army is viable, it’s strong, and it’s moderate”.

McCain continued to downplay the terror role played by the FSA rebels, opting for the false narrative that the rebels are acting on behalf of  the Syrian civilians. In late May, 21Wire quoted a NY Times article that exposed the CIA’s role in arming and funding FSA terror-rebel groups, proving how ridiculous McCain’s claims are.

McCain continued to push for a broader Syrian conflict:

“To do nothing would have consequences throughout the world,” McCain explained. “But to do something that really doesn’t change anything? In other words, some token strikes, and then sometime later Bashar al-Assad uses the chemical weapons again—what do we do then? Go through this same routine?”

Later in Washington, at the Senate hearing on Syria…

Lindsay Graham and John McCain were seen at today’s Senate hearing on Syria, a hearing which drew heated debate between Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and Secretary of State John Kerry.

Paul slammed the establishment with his thoughts on a US military response, and the ambiguity in which it is labeled:

“Ask the people on the ships launching missiles whether they’re involved with war or not.”

Will there be a repeat of the House of Commons on the Congressional floor, or will the neo-liberal machine and its ‘GOP’ surrogates have their war?
