Astonishing. Extraordinary. Hair-Raising. And buried. Robert Kennedy Jr. bravely explains in masterful detail that our Syrian invasion is another proxy oil war -- caused by Qatar's desire for an oil pipeline that Assad wouldn't build -- and shows in riveting clarity how the US and our allies created, funded and effectively seek to manage ISIS. And he states flatly that the media are lying to the American people in calling our own intervention driven by humanitarianism rather than oil. He notes that his uncle JFK gave a speech, famous in the Mideast, urging Arab autonomy from CIA puppet dictatorships set up for access to oil. Long but absolutely unmissable. Please share quickly.
