Syria reacted with fury on Friday to a visit by U.S. ambassador Robert Ford to the violence-stricken central city of Hama on Thursday.Remember my video yesterday of the "peaceful activists"........
''The presence of the U.S. ambassador in Hama city without obtaining a prior permission from the Foreign Ministry as stipulated by instructions distributed repeatedly to all the embassies is clear evidence of the U.S. involvement in the ongoing events in Syria and its bids to aggravate the situations which destabilize Syria''
Ford is planning to stay in Hama to attend anti-Assad protests, (led by protestors armed with guns, satellite phones etc., funded by the US) which normally erupt after Friday prayers.
Meanwhile Hilary Clinton makes threats...
Clinton warned the Syrian government Friday that it was running out of time to implement reforms and that without action, it would only face further resistance.Which really means "my way or the highway"
And...if you had any doubt at all that the US and it's NATO allies have been meddling all along in Syria.
This bit of news should end all doubts.
The US is pushing a roadmap, all prepared for Bashar Assad's "acceptance."
If he complies with the roadmap, or the reforms he will get to stay in power as a puppet leader for the West.
Details emerge of a controversial 'roadmap' for reforms that would leave him in power despite demands for his overthrow
• Read the document: A roadmap for Syria (in English)
• Read the document: A roadmap for Syria (in Arabic)
"The carefully phrased 3,000-word document demands a "clear and frank apology"
The proverbial pound of flesh.
It calls for the ruling Ba'ath party to be subject to a new law on political parties
Several of the proposed measures have already been mentioned in public by Assad, fuelling speculation that he is at least partially following through on some of the document's recommendations.
The roadmap is signed by Louay Hussein and Maan Abdelsalam, leading secular intellectuals in a group called the National Action Committee.Is it signed by anyone else?
Quiet US interest in the roadmap dovetails with public demands from Washington that Assad reform or step down
Quiet US interest? That is a hilarious statement.
There has been nothing quiet about US interest in Syria. Their interest has violently played out, moving from city to city. With the help of other compliant nations.
