By JAMES BRIAN The National Review is now a national treasure.
The article that was published on Wednesday, April 20, is an astounding piece of journalism, a rare piece of writing that manages to be both funny and informative and at the same time insightful and deeply depressing.
For those who have not read it yet, I will do my best to explain its premise.
A story by Charles Krauthammer, Jr., is titled “Gas Station Burned by Terrorists in Syria: How Many More?”
The piece begins with a report that claims the United States is currently engaged in a war of aggression in Syria, with the aim of destroying ISIS and forcing Assad into a power-sharing deal.
Krauthameers reporting and analysis is that the US is engaged in an armed struggle against the Syrian government and its military, in order to preserve its “strategic foothold” on the Mediterranean Sea.
This means the US must have the ability to launch a ground invasion of Syria.
Krauss’ report then goes on to detail the “strategy” of the United Nations, which has agreed to a deal with the Assad government in which the regime will have to surrender power to a unified government in the form of a “national unity government.”
Krauss writes that this deal would allow the UN to create a new government with the support of the West.
In other words, the US will be able to invade Syria to “stabilize” the country, and then claim that it is the “victim” in a new war.
This is Krauthames “war of aggression.”
The piece then goes into a detailed description of the supposed plans of the US to destroy the Syrian regime.
The US plans, according to Krauthams report, include using chemical weapons against Assad, the deployment of cruise missiles and drones, bombing Syrian towns, and bombing cities, such as Aleppo, in an effort to “destroy the Syrian state, to weaken Assad and to impose the will of the Syrian people.”
The United States has also “brought together the regional powers” to establish a “coalition of the willing” consisting of the Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and the United Arab Emirates.
The United Kingdom, the United Kingdom and Turkey have all pledged support for the coalition of the free nations.
As part of the coalition, the three nations are supposed to work to “restore stability in Syria,” Krauthamps reports.
But what Krauthamaers report doesn’t say is that these three countries are all part of a foreign-funded terrorist organization called Jabhat al-Nusra, which the article refers to as “the terrorist group” of which al-Qaeda is a branch.
Krautas reporting of the war in Syria is also lacking in nuance.
He writes that the United State is in a state of “total war,” while Assad has declared his intention to remain in power.
He also does not detail the US’s plans to “blow up the Syrian airfield” and “destroy Syrian cities.”
Krauthampers article, like so many of his others, is a fantasy.
It is a story that assumes the existence of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which Krauthamas claims was created in response to the US and Saudi attacks on Syria.
However, this narrative, like most of the reports about the conflict in Syria today, is simply a ruse to distract the reader from the real world.
The war in Iraq has been raging since 2011.
Over the last year, the Islamic extremists have been taking advantage of the situation to establish an Islamic caliphate that has claimed the lives of more than 100,000 people, including the US Ambassador to Iraq, Robert Ford, and scores of American soldiers.
As with the US, many of these attacks are conducted in order for the US government to justify war.
For instance, when US troops began withdrawing from Iraq in 2014, US Vice President Joe Biden said the US had no choice but to go to war in order “to protect our national security interests.”
But the US has spent the last four years of this war waging a war on ISIS, an al-Qaida-inspired group that is now controlling large swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq.
While US officials have admitted that the military operation in Syria was a failure, their narrative has been largely based on false information and a fantasy of an Islamic state that has not been created by ISIS.
In reality, ISIS has been a creation of the Iraqi government, and its leaders have been fighting the US-backed Syrian government since the war began in 2011.
In addition, the Obama administration has spent trillions of dollars supporting a military campaign that has failed to stop ISIS, with ISIS and al-Assad fighting each other with no coalition of any kind.
This war has not only killed civilians, it has also made life miserable for tens of thousands of Syrian and Iraqi civilians, many who have lost their homes.
In a world where millions of people have been killed by US drone strikes and bombings, the American
