While the hawks we're screaming Assad must go
The House of Saud
This is by far the easiest one to spot. Riyadh beheads twice as many people as ISIS, and usually for imaginary crimes like sorcery and homosexuality. Add to this the fact that Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy that imposes sharia on its subjects, at sword point, and that they are in the process of murdering Yemeni civilians, its not hard to see how Saudi Arabia is ripe for a color revolution. Of course, as long as they prop up the petrodollar system setting oil prices in dollars and recycling those dollars through treasury bonds (some 750,000,000,000 USD worth) and U.S. defense contractors like Textron Systems, General Dynamics and Boeing, they will remain in good standing with the
Abdel Fattah al-Sisi
After seizing power in a 2013 coup, al-Sisi has never restrained his security forces and army, both under his command, from silencing opposition through brute force. His goons have crushed freedom of speech, expression, assembly and the press through mass murder, indefinite detentions, military trials of civilians, and the false arrests of protestors or anyone who dares criticize him, even high school students. Some 124 Egyptians died in detention, from August 2013 to 2015, as a result of medical negligence and torture perpetrated by his security forces. And as a result of his edict expanding military court jurisdiction over all public facilities, some 2300 civilians have been sentenced in military tribunals. Of course none of his atrocities have discouraged Washington from providing his regime with billions in military aid (about 1.3 billion annually) and crowd control weapons.
The Vietnamese Communist Party
Yet another repressive government that receives Obozo's flattering support, in more ways than one; not only has he lifted the arms embargo against and promoted a TTP partnership with Vietnam, they also receive $122,000,000 in foreign aid from Washington. The Vietnamese Communist Party, which control a political monopoly with an iron fist, like their ideological brethren in North Korea, meet the slightest dissent with indefinite detention, imprisonment and sometimes death. The Communist state enslaves its own people through labor camps, where drug offenders, who are not even given a jury trial, are forced to work without compensation, and are often beaten and starved if they fail to meet daily quotas.
Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa
Out of all the despots and dictators Washington supports, they wouldn't have to invade even one of them to make them embrace greater 'freedom and democracy' in their own countries; they could use economic coercion to make them comply with the UN Declaration of Human Rights, so there's really no excuse.
The real motive for ousting Assad is not 'humanitarianism', a shoddy veil that is easily seen through. The real motive is to isolate Iran and maintain Israel's nuclear monopoly in the region, just like the real motive for the war against Qaddafi was not 'humanitarianism', like the talking heads of msm would have you believe, but to prevent him from creating a gold backed pan-African currency and keep francophone Africa dependent on neocolonialist institutions like the IMF and World Bank. This narrative, unlike the 'humanitarian intervention' narrative, is corroborated by known facts; the fact that both Saudi Arabia and Bahrain are regional rivals of Iran makes them convenient allies (the enemy of my enemy is my friend) and thus clients of the U.S. defense industry.
