Ken Stone, treasurer of the Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War, explains the conflict occurring in Syria and the push for regime change by the West. The funding and arming of the mercenary groups fighting in Syria by the U.S., the threat the Syrian government has posed to the American Empire, and the role the Responsibility to Protect doctrine and "white man's burden" has played in drumming up support for war are discussed. U.S. hegemony, not human rights, is the priority.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
