The Obama administration admits that its regime change project in Syria and his policies to defeat the “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” (ISIL) have been failures. Obama has abandoned his program of training “well-vetted moderate” mercenaries, and agreed to talk with Russia. It is a major admission of doing “stupid stuff” and Obama blames Hillary Clinton, neocons, and Republicans for talking him into it. The main stream media as usual takes no responsibility for being a cheerleader and propagandist for another U.S. debacle—Obama’s War.
The Guardian reported this week that the Russians tried to pursue a diplomatic solution to the chaos in Syria in 2012, but that the Russian’s effort fell on deaf ears in the Obama administration. The Guardian reported that “the former Finish president and Nobel Peace Prize winner Martti Ahtisaari said western powers failed to seize on the [Russian] proposal“. As a result “tens of thousands of people have been killed and millions uprooted, causing the world’s gravest refugee crisis since the Second World War”.
