Earlier this month, the U.S. ordered missile strikes on a Syrian air base in reaction to dictator Bashar al-Assad’s atrocities against his own people. The Syrian leader launched a chemical weapons attack on civilians that claimed the lives of men, women and children and horrified the world.
The problem is that politicians use morality as political leverage whenever it suits them, Kate Dalley explained on this week’s episode of “The Kate Show.” Investigator Dave joined Kate to talk about the motives behind the U.S. missile strikes on Syria and why a double standard on morality is nothing new.
“They only combine morality with economics when they want to push us into a war,” Kate said, explaining that we need to understand how the strings are being pulled behind the scenes. “We pick and choose when to use the morality, and that’s what’s so hard … when they’re pushing something.”
As an example, Kate talked about a quote from former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who once called a bombing that left hundreds of children dead a “hard choice.”
Investigator Dave noted that other political interests always influence the decision to go to war, whether it’s about oil, trade or economics.
“It’s all the same thing,” he said. “History repeats itself.”
