The U.S. is about to attack Syria. Here’s what you need to know:
 

  • Russia has repeatedly stated that it would consider an attack on Syria as an attack on its national security. China has also strongly cautioned the U.S. against attacking Syria. China and Russia hold alot of U.S. debt, and could make life difficult for us economically if we unnecessarily anger them
  • The U.S. and Britain considered attacking Syrians and then blaming it on the Syrian government as an excuse for regime change … 50 years ago (the U.S. just admitted that they did this to Iran)
  • America is not involved in Syria because that country poses a threat to America’s security … but for entirely different reasons
  • Many see the timing of the Syria crisis as an attack by the U.S. government to distract from its domestic scandals. If you need a reminder about what’s going on inside our country, here’s a cheat sheet on spying.
