It is times like these, when those who fight for freedom, are tested on the meaning of ‘freedom’ when it comes to power, and when it comes to others. The people of the Middle East stand tested as Saudia and Qatar send weapons and more to the type of people who say they fight for freedom while massacring and torturing their own. It takes such people to allow NATO and partners in crime to enter through the borders of Syria to wage such an undeclared barbaric war. It is with horror one hears of misinformed Arabs and Muslims who somehow find these tactics acceptable, and confuse it with the Arab Spring.
As the wicked witch of the North (as she was called pertaining to Libya), US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whips up a blood thirsty furore, threatening Russia and China, that they will pay the price for holding up progress, one wonders what progress, and whose progress Clinton is referring to.
The so-called ‘Friends of Syria’ meeting held in Cairo was a debacle of self interested forces within Syria who could not agree on anything, and it is just as well, as one the ground, amongst the Syrian peoples themselves, these entities have little support. Rather than ‘friends’, the enemies of Syria as referred to by Sara Flounders, the co-director of the International Action Center that took place on Friday 6 July 2012 in Paris faired no better with no representation from Syria, and with Russia and China forgoing both meetings. The Russian point of view is that the Paris meeting is immoral and politically wrong, which undoubtedly it is!
As France, NATO, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, U.S., and members of the U.A.E., perpetuate attrocities that involve torture and massacre, President Assad is held accountable, for all these lives that have been wasted, create the path to toppling Assad, as was the case in Libya. Whatever initial protests that rose up asking for change, were recognized by President Assad, and silenced by the undeclared war on the people that takes place daily.
For those who fail to see the wider picture, Flounders in an interview with Press TV states:
Press TV: Why do you think Russia and China boycotted the Paris meeting?
Flounders: Well, this was really a meeting of the enemies of Syria. There’s absolutely no doubt. There was no discussion. Also, Syria was not a part of it nor was Syria a part of the discussions in Geneva on Syria’s future.
This is an orchestrated effort led by Washington to absolutely pull down the Syrian government as a whole, to impose a regime change and to use paid mercenaries, a very high level of military equipment, all forms of sabotage, armed thugs – and they certainly are armed thugs as the previous supporter of these armed thugs even admitted – using every means to build chaos and dislocation within Syria.
It’s also not the armed groups alone. The US imposition of sanctions on Syria, on a seizure of Syrian assets – that’s piracy and theft – of the imposition coming from the Arab League who are really the corrupt feudal monarchies of the [Persian] Gulf states.
Everyone of these efforts coming from the European Union, from the US and from the Arab League to shutdown the Syrian economy, to destabilize and then to send in these armed groups, who are very well financed and armed, and they’re not just overwhelmingly, many of them even Syrians, are mercenaries who also fought in Libya, who fought in other countries. These are really paid, hired soldiers-of-fortune that are sent in as part of an orchestrated regime change.
The idea that Hillary Clinton can then also threaten Russia and China for daring stand against this completely illegal brigandage that’s going on, and saying that Russia and China should pay the price – that’s wording that’s even outside the scale of international diplomacy.
Outrageous, insulting but it shows the desperation of Washington.
Press TV: What does she mean by that? She said it once, she said it twice, she said it three times. It almost looks like this is taken to another level, maybe?
Flounders: It certainly is. It’s threatening wider war in the region at the very time that a great deal of both outside weapons are being pumped in, at the very time when US aircraft carriers, destroyers, jet aircraft, helicopters are flooding into both the area just off of Syria and also into the Persian Gulf. It is a military escalation of a very unprecedented and dangerous level.
Press TV: Let Sara Flounder respond to [the previous guest speaker].
Flounders: This is just outrageous lies and complete fabrications. These are not unarmed demonstrators. There’s an opposition in Syria, yes, as there is in every country.
But the armed bands that have destroyed cities, that have the death squads that have operated throughout Syria, the mercenaries forces that are operating in Syria today, [are] well paid by outside imperialist forces.
What the US wants in Syria is what they did in Iraq, what they did in Afghanistan, what they did in Libya which is a complete massive destruction.
Anyone who says and sides with this intervention is truly a complete and total traitor to their own people, a traitor to their own people, and that is what’s important to recognize. Anyone who sides with the US in this destruction in Syria is a traitor to the Syrian people.
Press TV: Our guest there said that Russia is losing influence in the Middle East. Isn’t it the other way around, that some have said it’s the US that’s losing its footing in the Middle East and that’s why Syria is part of their game plan? If you can respond to that.
Flounders: Yes, this is an absolutely desperate effort and you can see the desperation of Hillary Clinton making all manner of threats against Russia and China, if they don’t go along with regime change.
It’s important to recognize that the US strategic aims to control and dominate Iraq, utterly failed. They have a disastrous situation in Afghanistan and they’ve left complete chaos in Libya. Everywhere that they have tried through military means to just upset, root out, pull apart an existing government only chaos has followed.
Their aims to recolonize the region, because that’s really what they’re attempting, have completely failed in any strategic form.
They can create great chaos, enormous pain for the population, for the whole area. In Iraq, a third of the population ended up dead, dismembered or dislocated. That’s staggering figures. That’s really a genocide against the whole people.
And their desperation, yet, they could not stay in Iraq. The Iraqi people made that clear.
So in their desperation, they’ve moved onto Syria, arming bands, creating all manner of complete chaos.
There’s an opposition in Syria, of course, that’s without a doubt, but an opposition which was organizing demonstrations, that had made demands.
But these armed groups are not an independent Syrian opposition. They are a creation of Washington and the imperialist forces. They show the waning, the inability to control the region.
It’s the people on the ground, the Syrian people who have every right to control their fate. They’re kept out of these debates and discussions, totally excluded, while Washington makes the demands. That will not make history.
The demand that every country in the world salute, that they follow the US
demands for sanctions whether on Syria or on Iran or other countries is completely…
Syria was on the agenda for regime change as far back as 1957, under Britain’s Harold Macmillan, and the U.S. Dwight Eisenhower. Then the false flag was fake border incidents in order to pave the way to invading Syria. That meeting took place in Washington on September 1957, and they were not just after the Syrian president (Colonel Sarraj, General al-Bizri and Mr Bakdash were considered the real power behind the president). The reason then was the:
- Fear of spread of communism
- Syria control the main oil pipeline that would affect pro-western Iraq’s oilfields to Turkey.
- Prevent nationalization of the Suez Canal
The evidence for this colusion was found amidst private documents of Duncan Sandys, Mr Macmillan’s defence secretary. The plan was to involve:
- “Once a political decision is reached to proceed with internal disturbances in Syria, CIA is prepared, and SIS [MI6] will attempt, to mount minor sabotage and coup de main incidents within Syria, working through contacts with individuals.””…Incidents should not be concentrated in Damascus
- “… care should be taken to avoid causing key leaders of the Syrian regime to take additional personal protection measures.”“… Syria had to be “made to appear as the sponsor of plots, sabotage and violence directed against neighbouring governments,”
- “CIA and SIS should use their capabilities in both the psychological and action fields to augment tension.”
- Funding of a “Free Syria Committee”, and the arming of “political factions with paramilitary or other actionist capabilities” within Syria.
- “The CIA and MI6 would instigate internal uprisings, for instance by the Druze in the south, help to free political prisoners held in the Mezze prison, and stir up the Muslim Brotherhood in Damascus”.Then, the plan was not implemented, but now…. doesn’it sound familiar. It could not be implemented then because Syria’s neighbors could not be persuaded to act, with the acception of Turkey.
Syria, Lebanon, and Iran, were also on the ‘agenda’ in 2007, as noted in the Hersh report, The Redirection that the U.S., Israel,Saudi Arabia, amongst others have been funding, arming, feuling, and deploying sectarian extremists to destabilize those countries, accept that the only name we will hear is Al-Qaeda! What is it then when Abdul Hakim Belhaj, commander of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group joins the misnomered Free Syrian Army?
- Russia and China’s obstinacy, as well as Iraq is based on the knowledge of and have accused publicly (Security Council meeting) the U.S. of:
- Libya training armed rebels along with NATO at special training centers
- Groups are sent to Syria to attack the government
- Turkey, the U.S., Saudi Arabia, and the Gulf countries have been sending arms
If they fail with Syria, they will move forward with Iran, for by hook or by crook all the bllod will be spilt to save a cfrumbling capitalism not for the citizens of the countries represented in this unholy debacle, but to maintain the wealth, power, and control of the world’s resources by the global elite in the name of global governance by reaping war in the Middle East!
David Icke shares:
‘Syrian first-aid worker injured many times and killed… shows up at Friends of Syria Conference!
“As I was watching the “Friends” of the Syrian People Conference hosted by French President François Hollande on July 6, 2012, I was very surprised to recognize the face of one of those famous Syrian rebels, often filmed by Al-Jazeera and described as killed, injured, rebel, first-aid worker, activist, etc!'”
