The only country in the Middle East that might benefit in ANY way from another war is Israel, in part because it seems to thrive on warfare. War or the threat of it, in the Zionist mentality, permits maintenance of its territorial expansions and human rights crimes against the Palestinians and war crimes against others (given the de facto backing by Israel’s benefactor, the U.S., and the Trump Administration).

It’s hard to imagine anything more absurd or arrogant or, for that matter, illegal. It’s not only illegal but stealing Syria’s oil is nothing but raw, in-your-face theft, and if anyone EVER thought the U.S. was in ANY foreign lands to bring good tidings, democracy, respect for human rights that includes alleged women’s rights, then this crass move ought to once and for all time rip the cover off any assertions to the contrary about what the so-called “empire’s” true intentions are.
