Pentagon Considers Illegally Occupied Syrian Areas US Territory

By Stephen Lendman

December 13, 2018 "Information Clearing House" Bipartisan hardliners in Washington consider all areas occupied by Pentagon forces virtual US territory, subject to its will under its rules, defying the sovereign rights of nations, fundamental international law, and its own Constitution.

Hubris and arrogance, along with contempt for democracy and rule of law principles, define how hegemons operate.

It’s true for the US most of all, the way it’s been since bankers, lawyers, politicians, judges, merchants, planters, and slave owners – a virtual Wall Street crowd – founded the country, installing self-serving leadership. 

Throughout its history, US governance has always been of, by, and for the privileged few alone – truer today than ever before.

Rage by Republicans and undemocratic Dems to rule the world unchallenged is humanity’s greatest threat – what Western media never explain, what most people don’t understand.
