The White House Creeps Into War

"Mission Creep" has already started in the matter of Syria. Soon we shall be invading if the military-industrial-surveillance (MIS) complex has their way.
The scale and purpose of the operation against Syria has not changed in recent weeks, although US forces would adjust as needed, a defense official told AFP.

"We will continue to review our targeting and targeting options as the Syrian government adapts over time," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

"We are working to the same objective that President (Barack) Obama has outlined," he insisted, responding to a report in the Los Angeles Times on Sunday.

The strikes against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, in retaliation for what the US says is the regime's use of chemical weapons in a Damascus suburb, could last longer than a day, officials have said.
The Los Angeles Times had reported Sunday the Pentagon was readying more intense and longer attacks on Syria than originally planned, set to last three days.

War planners now aim to unleash a heavy barrage of missile strikes to be followed swiftly by additional attacks on targets that may have been missed or remain standing after the initial launch, the Times cited officials as saying.
Two US officers told the newspaper that the White House asked for an expanded target list to include "many more" than the initial list of around 50 targets.

Once more, there is no such thing as a limited strike.
The MIS complex knows this, and so should the President. However, the White House thinks that they can build a model war, like a ship in a bottle, and put it on display for the rest of the world.

The addled dreams of technocrats.
