Impeach Obama Now!

Stephen Lendman

Do it now. Do it before it's too late.

A previous article called impeaching him a national imperative. He's already guilty of multiple high crimes of war, against humanity and genocide. He plans much more ahead. He intends lawless aggression against Syria. He risks regional war. He's menacing humanity. He risks WW III. He cares only about advancing America's imperium. Mass killing and destruction are small prices to pay. So is risking humanity's annihilation.

Francis Boyle wants him impeached. He urged doing so when Congress returns on September 9. Last December, Boyle spoke at the Puerto Rican Summit Conference on Human Rights. US militarism threatens WW III, he said. A century after earlier imperial aggressions, "neoconservative Republican Bush Junior administration and the neoliberal Democratic Obama administration are now threatening" global war, he said. Obama, other high administration officials, and their subordinates "are responsible for the commission of crimes against peace."

The Nuremberg Charter, Judgment, and Principles, other international laws, and US Army Field Manual (FM) 27-10 define them. In "international legal terms," said Boyle, "the United States government" is guilty of "serial wars of aggression, crimes against peace, crimes against humanity, and war crimes that are legally akin to those perpetrated by the former Nazi regime in Germany."

Obama, Congress and the coming war against Syria

President Barack Obama’s change of course in seeking US congressional authorization for military aggression against Syria, far from representing a more measured or democratic approach, is aimed at providing political cover for an unpopular war of unlimited scope. What is being planned goes far beyond anything that the US and world public have been led to expect.

The administration on Tuesday kicked off a relentless propaganda campaign, described by aides as “flooding the zone.” With the full collaboration of the media, the aim is to obliterate any critical thinking in relation to the lies and pretexts that have been put forward to justify another unprovoked war against an oppressed former colonial country. At the same time, the war propaganda is designed to delegitimize and intimidate opposition and make military action seem inevitable.

Congress is being enlisted in this effort in the form of an Authorization of the Use of Military Force (AUMF) resolution, which is to be rammed through with the support of the leaderships of both big business parties, the Democrats and Republicans.

The pretense that the coming war is a “limited” humanitarian venture aimed at punishing Syria’s Assad regime for the alleged use of chemical weapons is being thoroughly debunked in the process.

Obama's War on Syria Imminent

Stephen Lendman

Key now is what happens going forward. For sure it looks like more war. Obama bears full responsibility. It bears repeating. He's an out-of-control rogue menace.

He decided to attack. He'll do so whether on not Congress approves. He'll ignore international law. He believes he has a divine right to do what he wants. He's an out-of-control rogue menace. He's a war criminal multiple times over. He's waging war on humanity. He's doing so based on lies. He wants another imperial trophy. He plans getting it one way or another. War is his option of choice. Who cares if Syrians bleed. Their pain and suffering is Washington's gain.

On September 2, Russia Today headlined "Evidence of chemical weapons use in Syria should not be kept secret - Lavrov." Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov addressed students at the Moscow State University of International Relations. He called the West's "regime of secrecy" on Syria unacceptable, saying: "f there truly is top secret information available, the veil should be lifted. This is a question of war and peace. To continue this game of secrecy is simply inappropriate." John Kerry claims America has evidence Assad used sarin nerve gas on August 21. Put up or shut up, said Lavrov. He did so in diplomatic language. He called information provided [to] Russia "inconclusive." There's no there there. It's meaningless. It's fabricated rubbish.
