Zionist dominated US pursuing ‘imperialist’ goals in Syria – ISIS is a prextext to bomb Assad
The United States is pursuing the “imperialist” goal of establishing a “subservient government” in Syria under the cover of its military campaign against ISIL, says an analyst and anti-war activist.
“I think the decision to hit Syria is best understood by looking at the US overall objective, to put itself back on top of the world imperialist heap,” said Joe Isobaker of the United National Antiwar Coalition.
He made the remarks during an interview with Press TV on Thursday when asked about US goals in fighting the ISIL terrorist group, which former Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich said were taking control of oil fields and ultimately “regime change” in Syria.
Kucinich wrote in an article that the US launched airstrikes on ISIL “to wrest control of the oil from ISIS which gained its foothold directly in the region through the US, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and Jordan funding and arming ISIS’ predecessors in Syria.”
Isobaker said that US corporations were dependent on Middle East oil to maintain America’s dominance in the global economy.
“This is the seventh Muslim country bombed by the US over the last decade, these nations have in common that they are in the most oil-rich region in the world and control of the Middle East is key to the profits of US corporations and the US overall domination of the world economy,” he stated.
While taking control of Syria’s oil is a “tactical” objective, Isobaker said, “Obama’s number one objective is a subservient government, one that accepts US and Israeli dictates.”
“I certainly agree with Congressman Kucinich that no one should believe President Obama’s claim that the US is attacking ISIS because of the threat that they pose to the humanity,” he said.
He explained that the US has no concern for humanity, citing support for the Israeli onslaught against the Gaza Strip. “Washington allowed Israel to massacre over two thousand people almost all civilians over the summer in Gaza.”
“These attacks violate international law finally and they are in fact an act of war against Syria,” Isobaker concluded.
