Washington’s Long War on Syria: Stephen Gowans, Montreal, May 2, 2017

Book Launch Of Stephen Gowans Book

In-depth Report:

Stephen Gowans’s book, Washington’s Long War on Syria, which is just out, is essential to understand this war and to face the growing threat of a major war.

When Donald Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missiles against a Syrian air base on April 6, he was only following the policy of Barack Obama who demanded formally in the summer of 2011 that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad step down. This was not the first time Washington had sought regime change in Damascus. The United States has waged a long war against Syria from the very moment the country’s fiercely independent Arab nationalist movement came to power in 1963. Assad and his father Hafez al-Assad were committed to that movement. For Washington, the end justifies the means: bombing, alliance with the worst forms of Islamist terrorism and with royal dictatorships of Saudi Arabia and Qatar and more.

Stephen Gowans’s book, Washington’s Long War on Syria, which is just out, is essential to understand this war and to face the growing threat of a major war.
Gowans’ book is a timely and indispensable resource for those seeking to understand recent events in Syria.” Eva Bartlett, Independent journalist

Lorsque Donald Trump a lancé 59 missiles Tomahawk contre une base aérienne syrienne le 6 avril, il ne faisait que suivre la politique de Barack Obama qui a demandé formellement à l’été 2011 au président syrien Bachar al-Assad de quitter le pouvoir. Ce n’est pas la première fois que Washington essaie d’effectuer un changement de régime à Damas.
Les États-Unis livrent une longue guerre contre la Syrie depuis l’arrivée au pouvoir du mouvement nationaliste arabe résolument indépendant en 1963, dont le président Assad et son père sont d’ardents défenseurs. Tous les moyens sont bons : bombardements, alliances avec les pires formes de terrorisme islamiste et avec les dictatures royales d’Arabie Saoudite et de Qatar et plus.
Le livre de Stephen Gowans, Washington’s Long War on Syria, qui vient de paraître, est indispensable pour comprendre cette guerre et pour faire face à la menace grandissante d’une guerre majeure.
« L’ouvrage arrive à point nommé, indispensable pour comprendre les événements récents en Syrie. » Eva Bartlett, journaliste indépendante.
