Nephew of JFK speaks out on the real reason behind the plans for regime change in Syria.
Radio Sputnik interviewed Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on 3/6 to ask about the Syrian crisis, the real motivations behind interventionism in Syria and regime change in the Middle East.
Kennedy revealed that corporate donors and multinational interests decided to remove Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power after the secular leader refused to support a Qatari gas pipeline project. The Sputnik interview also touched on the reckless nature of neocon U.S. foreign policy positions and the refugee crisis.
“We’ve compromised our own constitution, including the Bill of Rights in the name of the national security state and a warfare state. We’ve gotten rid, in many cases, of the right of jury trial. We’ve gotten rid of the prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment. We talked ourselves into this idea that it’s okay to water board and torture people,” Kennedy said.
He asserted that the general public has been manipulated to believe that the U.S. is a beacon of democracy in order to manufacture support for regime change in the Middle East despite the fact that the measure only results in more radical Islamic terrorism.
“But we haven’t been responsive to the refugee crisis. And today we are doing the same thing. And the problem is that we really have been creating this refugee crisis. We are the ones that destroyed the government of Libya.”
“We are the ones that in this pipeline dispute helped destroy the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria. We are the ones who invaded Iraq, when there were no weapons of mass destruction, when Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11. And Saddam Hussein was very hostile to al-Qaeda, as was Muammar Gadaffi. Gaddafi was helping us fight Al-Qaeda,” he revealed.
Kennedy also revealed that after 9/11, Assad gave the federal goverment dossiers on terrorists from several Islamic jihadist groups because he viewed them as mutual enemies.
“I am not saying that we should ally ourselves with the dictators. But we ally ourselves with the Saudis. And the Saudis don’t let women drive a car. You go to jail if you drive a car. They behead people every Wednesday in Mecca. They torture people and they suppress free speech and they do a lot that is probably worse.”
He concluded that when the government decides to overthrow leaders in the Middle East, the decision almost always stems from “interests of large United States corporations who have an economic interest in the region.”
