    China paper: "As if Iraq was not enough, they’re lying about Syria to wage war now"

    Is this sharp tone and bluntly calling us liars due to Trump's tariffs policy?

    As if Iraq was not enough, they’re lying about Syria to wage war now

    Yonden Lhatoo says the US and its allies have not only learned nothing from their disastrous invasion of Iraq, they’re using the same kind of lies to justify the same mistakes they’re making all over again, this time in Syria

    PUBLISHED : Saturday, 21 April, 2018

    “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” the old and oft-repeated aphorism goes.
    Well, in this age of unreason, we remember the past all right, but we’re completely cavalier about repeating the mistakes of history. Learning lessons is for wimps in the new world order.
    A textbook case of this is what’s happening right now in Syria. We’re being lied to about the need to bomb what’s left of that war-ravaged country, just like we were hoodwinked over Iraq 15 years ago.
    Last week self-appointed global sheriff the United States and deputy dawgs Britain and France showered more than 100 missiles upon Syria, telling the world they were making our planet safer by punishing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for gassing his own people with chemical weapons.

    The casus belli this time was the Damascus suburb of Douma, where more than 40 people were said to have been killed and hundreds injured when Assad’s air force dropped barrel bombs filled with toxic chemicals on the civilian population.

    “The evil and despicable attack left mothers and fathers, infants and children writhing in pain and gasping for air,” Trump said, purportedly outraged by video footage from an underground clinic in the war zone depicting chaotic scenes of children traumatised and struggling to breathe while medics splashed water on them.

    Trump ordered the air strikes, offering no proof whatsoever of “gas killing animal” Assad’s culpability, when experts from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons were already on their way to Syria to find out the truth.
    We’re still waiting for their verdict, but in the meantime, what veteran British war correspondent Robert Fisk has uncovered so far is a stunning repudiation of the mainstream narrative.

    I just read this column and it's excellent. I am normally not a fan of the SCMP because I think they are a globalist news source but they have a mix of commentators, not all singing from the same hymn sheet.

    To be fair, Syria "lies" could be part of short term freedom plan compared to Iraq WMD's:
