While Americans endlessly battle each other over seemingly important
choices like Clinton and Trump or Democrats and Republicans, it is clear
that the majority of the population has little understanding of how the
U.S. government operates. Yet, for those who pay the price for the
apathy and confusion of the general population of the West, it often
becomes stunningly obvious that neither presidents nor political parties
in America represent any discernible difference in the ongoing agenda
of the Deep State and the rest of the oligarchical apparatus. Indeed,
that agenda always marches forward regardless of who is president or
which political party is in control.
Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad has thus had the unique position of
not only being on the receiving end of American imperialism by virtue
of not only being a citizen of a target country but also by being the
head of the country, steeped in politics in his own right and thus
understanding how certain factors come into play at the national level.
