Pope Francis: End the bloodshed in Syria
Will US Catholics, especially the bishops, speak out against the unjust US-NATO-Al Qaeda war on Syria now that Pope Francis has done so? Or will they continue to support the opposition?

“Do you support the call by John McCain and Lindsey Graham for the U.S. to intervene on the side of the rebels in Syria?

Homeland Security News Wire – March 25, 2013 – Rebels, not the Syrian army, fired last week’s chemical weapon: experts
“Western intelligence services, analyzing the few facts known about the use of a chemical weapon near Aleppo in north Syria last week, have concluded that it was one of the rebel militias, rather than Assad government forces, which fired the chemical artillery round. Twenty-six people were killed by the chemical explosions, and nearly a hundred people were injured and require hospitalization.”

What’s occurring in Syria is exactly what occurred in Libya: a US-NATO funded, trained, and armed foreign mercenary force waging a violent insurgency against a stable government unfriendly to US-NATO interests. Neither was a rebellion of the Libyan and Syrian peoples. The US media is and has been lying about Libya and Syria. Professor Chenoweth told us the truth in Washington:
Washington, DC – July 2012 – Professor Erica Chenoweth admits that “the success of the Libyan uprising will, no doubt, be remembered as a successful case of violent insurgency.” However, as she argues, a nonviolent resistance never had time to take hold.”
