To open this post let's use the staring point of Hillary Clinton's visit to Turkey.
She rode, via broomstick, in to that nation today...
On the agenda is Libya, Syria, the Cyprus "problem". Which is one of reunification between Greece and Cyprus
" Peace talks are currently underway to find a negotiated settlement that will reunite the country, under a federal roof."
Of course that would be necessary for that pipeline via Israel I had previously posted on.
You can refresh your memory if this is unfamiliar territory.
With Libya, Hilary will focus on the illegal war on Libya, the terror campaign being waged by NATO in that nation, and the move towards recognizing the terrorist group that NATO has allied themselves with.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Turkey on Friday for a Libya conference marked by growing hopes the international campaign to topple Muammar Gaddafi is nearing its goal and rebel forces can mature into a legitimate government.
Clinton will confer with leaders of the Nato-led coalition to assess the political road map for Libya's future and discuss further steps to support the Benghazi-based National Transitional Council (TNC), officials said.
Another "road map"! The US has always got some handy dandy "road map" on hand.
Must be covered with many routes to hell...
And boy that Benghazi bunch. Beside training kids as young as seven to take up arms, thereby breeding future psycho killers.
I understand they are quite the bunch of racist, religious extremist terrorists. A perfect match for Hillary and the NATO crowd!
Did I mention they would like to re- institute a monarchy!
A move that has Saudi Arabia very pleased.
NATO "winning" means in practice Cyrenaica as an independent republic - although the "rebels" would rather restore the monarchy (the candidate can barely conceal his impatience in London). That also happens to be what Saudi Arabia and Qatar - major backers of regime change - want.
This "independent" eastern Libya would-be emirate is already recognized by a few countries, Sarkozy's France included. No wonder; it is already configured as a NATO protectorate. The ultra-dodgy Transitional Council cannot even let its members - opportunist defectors, US Central Intelligence Agency assets, jihadi-linked clerics - be known.
Seriously there is a monarchist in waiting for Libya!
And, he has already hired a PR firm to work their magic..
Today, home is a north London mansion with his mum. But who knows what tomorrow might bring for Prince Mohammed El Senussi, pretender to the throne of Libya?As world leaders ponder what Libya might look like after Gaddafi, the 48-year-old may be hoping it will feature him. The prince has hired the PR firm Bell Pottinger to represent him, and this week sets off on a tour of the Middle East to meet Libyan groups. Bell Pottinger says this is to arrange humanitarian aid for his country. But who could blame him if he were to hanker after a return to Tripoli to pick up where his great-uncle King Idris left off in 1969?
He is out and about. Making the rounds. All ready to be a despotic monarch just like in Saudi Arabia.
He is very concerned about the people of course. Wink.
He is expressing his views to the European Conservatives and Reformists Group
They seem to be a political arm of the NATO agenda from my perusal.
From Libya, let's move to Syria. Hillary is going to discuss Syria with Turkey.
In a previous post I mentioned that the US is looking to Turkey for "leadership" in the area.
Which really means, that Turkey will just take it's orders from NATO.
There has also been talk of Turkey invading Syria for a buffer zone.
For "humanitarian" reasons, of course!
Maybe this is more then just talk? What if Turkey invaded Syria?
This view would change with a Turkish intrusion into Syria, as would Turkey’s relationship with Israel, harkening back to the 1990s, when the two countries united against Damascus for its harboring of terrorist groups. (very good for pipelines, which I have yet to get to in an indepth way, but, I will)
The AKP’s decision to pressure Turkey’s NGOs to disengage from this year’s Gaza flotilla signifies the renewal of a Turkish realization that Israel could be an ally in an unstable region.
In addition to reconfiguring Turkish-Israeli-Syrian ties, a Turkish incursion would drive a wedge between Ankara and Tehran, thus, ending the honeymoon Ankara has pursued with Tehran since the Iraq War.
Today, Ankara and Tehran are at odds; their policies on Syria are diametrically opposed. In the event of a Turkish intervention in Syria, the competition between Ankara and Tehran for influence in Iraq would further compound the situation.
Such an intervention would deteriorate Turkey and Iran’s increasingly problematic relationship. A Turkish invasion would rejuvenate Turkish-U.S. ties, which have yet to recover fully from the Iraq War. (remember the signing of Nabucco)
The crisis in Syria is leading the U.S. and Turkey to coordinate their Middle East policies to an extent not seen for nearly a decade. A Turkish intervention in Syria and backed by the U.S. to uphold the nascent doctrine of “responsibility to protect,” would indeed warm up U.S.-Turkish ties beyond imagination.This piece comes from the Washington Institute. It is quite likely the American view on things, so this may in fact be the next step taken regarding Syria.
Getting back to Hillary. She is in Turkey. She has spoke loudly and clearly about Assad.
The question is after she leaves Turkey, will there be an invasion of Syria?
"President Assad is not indispensable, and we have absolutely nothing invested in him remaining in power.”
Washington and it's allies have officially recognized the "rebels" as the "legitimate" government (for now) Because Washington dictates who leads other countries right?
They are going to hand over 30 BILLION confiscated dollars to the "rebels"?
This is an incredibly bad move for so many reasons. One thing this indicates to me is there will most probably be an increase in boots on the ground.
For the Canadians: A 2.3 billion dollar credit line is to be extended by Canada to the rebels
What a scam this is!
Officials are looking at the feasibility of funnelling upwards of 20% of the value of Libyan assets frozen here and abroad in Canadian financial institutions to the council.
A United Nations resolution prohibits Canada from unfreezing the assets -- believed to be about $2.3 billion.
The government ( that is Canadian taxpayers) would recoup the cash from the assets after the UN gives the green light to unlock the accounts.
You know that ain't gonna happen!
Canadian politicians dig a debt grave for the people
