Obama sought congress approval to go in and take out Syrian army forces but was rejected. Whilst the UK parliament voted 285 to 272 not to attack Syria as Prime Minister David Cameron had wanted to do.
With no luck in removing the Syrian government an offshoot of al Qaeda was created called ISIS and moved into Syria to fight against Assad. To which we now know that ISIS was created as a proxy army to do the bidding for where the west was unable to go in overtly.
US General Wesley Clark exposed the plan to attack 7 countries in 5 years in an effort to steal oil and resources, yet somehow this is not referenced in the mainstream media.
Today we are seeing the effects of this covert war spill into other areas with the current refugee crisis.
The mainstream media is failing to inform people of how these refugees where created (by foreign intervention mainly the US bombing their country and its infrastructure), and is even trying to pin the blame on Russia for the refugee crisis and claiming Assad is helping ISIS, when the exact opposite is true.
