Are there any Americans left in the USSA that put America first or have we become so dumbed down and brainwashed by Zionist propaganda that we act like a bunch of trained seals, clapping loudly for more wars to protect Apartheid Israel from reality and advance the Zionist agenda?
The Obama administration set new, largely symbolic, sanctions Friday on Syria's state-run oil company and the Hezbollah militant group, moves designed to underscore Iran's key role in propping up the Syrian regime over the span of its civil war.Source
State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said the penalties against energy firm Sytrol come after it delivered $36 million worth of gasoline to Iran in April. At the same time, Tehran was "actively advising, supplying, and assisting the Syrian security forces and regime-backed militias that are carrying out gross human rights abuses against the Syrian people."
Meanwhile, the Treasury Department targeted Hezbollah for "training, advice and extensive logistical support to the government of Syria's increasingly ruthless efforts to fight against the opposition." It also blamed the Lebanese Shiite militant group for coordinating Iranian assistance to the Syrian government.
Neither action will change Americans' behavior much. Americans have been banned from doing business with Hezbollah since the U.S. declared it a foreign terrorist organization in the 1990s.
Sytrol had mostly exported to the European Union, but the bloc also declared an embargo against Syrian oil last year.
"Hezbollah's extensive support to the Syrian government's violent suppression of the Syrian people exposes the true nature of this terrorist organization and its destabilizing presence in the region," the Treasury Department's sanctions chief, David S. Cohen, said.
Asked what the latest U.S. action against Hezbollah might accomplish, the State Department's counterterrorism coordinator, Daniel Benjamin, said he hoped it would lead other countries to follow suit. "That would limit the amount of space for Hezbollah to operate in," he told reporters in a telephone briefing.
The United States and its Western allies are stopping short of providing lethal assistance to the opposition, but it has become an open secret that several Arab countries are supplying weapons and ammunition.
Go to the State Department's Counter Terrorism unit page and it reads like a Bar Mitzvah guest list.
Surely there's no conflict of interest there, right?
Ditto for the U.S. Treasury Department, which is flooded with Zionist Jews and Israeli Firsters.
Both the Treasury head, Tim Geithner, who helped Bernie Maddox launder billions and billions of OUR money to Israel when Timmy was head of the New York Federal Reserve to his sidekick Wolin, can't Congress find any Americans who are willing, ready and able to put America first and tell Israel to piss off?
How much more blood and money to we have to sacrifice to Israel and shed on the altar to Zionism?
