President Donald Trump has cooked up a big slimy lie to serve as a pretext for a U.S. aggression against Syria.

This lie is as big and as slimy as the lie cooked up by George W. Bush and company to serve as a pretext for U.S. aggression against Iraq in 2003. The Iraq lie alleged falsely that weapons of mass destruction were in Iraq. Trump’s lie falsely alleges that the Syrian air force dropped bombs containing deadly chemicals on the civilian population in Syria.

This is an old and traditional lie that frequently appears in the aggressor’s propaganda of U.S. imperialists. The U.S. armed forces and their allies in Syria planted chemical weapons in civilian neighborhoods and the devices were detonated by remote control at any time that the U.S. imperialists decided was appropriate for a massacre. The U.S. imperialists and their allies waited until the Syrian aircraft flew over the neighborhood designated for this sneaky, dirty attack. When the Syrian aircraft flew over, the U.S. and its allies detonated the chemical weapons killing civilians.

Trump has come out vociferously blaming the Syrian government for the atrocity that Trump and his allies perpetrated on the people of Syria. The people of the USA have witnessed these dirty tricks in the wars against Iraq, the occupation of the Dominican Republic, the Bay of Pigs attack against Cuba, the war against the Philippines, and the wars against Vietnam and Cambodia. In every instance, the U.S. imperialists start the aggression with a big slimy lie.

The liberal progressives and left forces in the USA must denounce this old trick that the US imperialists are about to perpetrate on the Syrian and the US people.
