This interview is eye-popping! Does this guy have a death wish?! Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (nephew of assassinated President John F. Kennedy) is coming out swinging against the establishment and the neo-cons, again.
Kennedy makes the accusation that the real reason the U.S. decided to remove the Syrian President from power was because Bashar al-Assad refused to support a Qatari gas pipeline project. He says that America has “compromised our own constitution, including the Bill of Rights” for national security and a warfare state. Kennedy also says that the U.S. has “intervened” in other countries 58 times since WW2 and that we’re no longer a beacon of democracy.
He says that, “When we decide to overthrow those people, if you examine the real motives, almost always they serve the interests of large United States corporations who have an economic interest in the region. And in this case that was true. If you look at the roots of this war it is a pipeline war.”
Hope he has a good security team, he’s about the right age to die from a heart attack.
