Neo-con fascists, clamoring for a war in Syria, are outraged that parliaments are actually going to vote on the issue, and not have it rammed down their throats. Christiane Amanpour, has outdone herself over the past few days in virulent, hysterical war mongering. Sickening is her thuggish approach to something we, in the West, call "democracy".
