Obama seeking ‘another war for Israel’ in Sryia ‘concerning’

The extent to which US President Barack Obama tried to get Americans into “another war for Israel” in Syria” is “concerning,” a political commentator tells Press TV.

“It’s very concerning that President Obama went to the extent that he did to get us into another war for Israel versus Syria,” James Morris, editor of America-hijacked.com said in a phone interview on Monday.

He made the comments as distinguished American investigative journalist Seymour Hersh says in his recent article that Obama did not tell the whole story about a chemical attack near the Syrian capital, Damascus in August.

“President Obama had basically cherry-picked intelligence, according to Seymour Hersh’s article, to get a war with Syria underway,” Morris said.

In a televised speech on September 10, Obama accused the Syrian government of carrying out a chemical attack which killed hundreds of people including women and children. The president made the case for a military action but backtracked when British lawmakers voted against it and Russia made a proposal to put the Syrian chemical weapons under international control.

Morris said that US wars in the Middle East have all been designed to protect the interests of Israel.

Obama’s plan to attack Syria, he explained, was part of a broader strategy “to break up the enemies of Israel in the region starting with Iraq and then Syria and then Iran and beyond. And that’s what we see in Syria.”

“The problem now is Israel lobby has so much influence over the President Obama administration and the Congress, that they were just dying to get another war for Israel going into Syria and you had a media that was complicit with that,” Morris said.

He concluded that, “As a patriotic American like myself we don’t want to see any more Americans dying for Israel, not only in Iraq but Iran and Syria.”
