The war in Arab Syria, still going on for years, is a sort of world war as many powers are killing Muslims there as part of America’s permanent war project following 9/11. The war has become intense with Russian forces joining the party in Damascus. As in the case of Palestine issue, USA maintains it wants to find a credible solution to the crisis and end war in Syria.
Capitalist-imperialist America is destined to have hawkish presidents in future too for advancing global interests of USA, both legal and illegal.

America’s choice of Arab nation has been deliberate and awfully focused. Since the terror wars have been to pump oil to USA, like from Libya and Iraq, USA has decided to make the terror wars a permanent feature of US foreign policy.
