Getting back to Syria....The Atlantic asks- Is Civil war in Syria Inevitable?
The correct title should be: Syrian Civil War: The Western Goal
That title would at least be factually correct!
Instead the Atlantic gives us nonsense. Claims such as:
" some of the opposition has been slowly suggesting a greater willingness to accept the use of arms"
The "opposition" has been fully armed and willing to use arms for quite a while now.
For months ambushes and killings by activists have been reported by Syrian, Chinese, Russian
& Lebanese media. There have been trains derailed and bombings of pipelines.
These activities have only been alluded to in the Western media (see below)
"There are hints that arms and financing for weapons are being delivered by outside forces."Hints?
Who is the Atlantic kidding?
It has been obvious that support, arms and financing have been being delivered all along by outside forces, to anyone that has been paying attention.
It has been getting harder and harder for the main stream media to call the activists peaceful as attacks on civilians, government buildings and soldiers increase daily.
Which is why the BBC had previously gave us the ridiculous "ghost fighters" story.
Today, It looks as if the arming of so called "activists" in Syria is finally going to go public.
According to Western diplomats and political observers watching the developments in Syria, the next stage of the international community’s response to events in Damascus will move from supporting the people’s uprising and condemning the oppression of the regime by waving the stick of economic and financial sanctions – including the travel ban on political officials who have been blacklisted – to arming the Syrian opposition, similar to what was done in Libya.
"The U.S., France and Britain will participate in strengthening the military side of the opposition in Syria to create a balance with the security apparatus controlled by President Bashar Assad and his regime. It’s likely that Turkey will spearhead the operation to arm the opposition"Russia can and will object, but to what effect? France, Britain and the US will continue on doing what they have been doing
However, diplomatic sources expect that this course would face the objection of Russia.
This is clearly an upping of the ante in Syria, to drive the Syrians deeper and deeper in civil war. The civil war the west has worked for years to get going.
Don't believe me this has been years in the making? Don't take my word for it.
The US has admitted to funding Syrian Opposition
Where did the activists get their satellite phones? Pricey stuff. How are the getting connected to the internet? Who is providing the satellite service?
"The files show that up to $6.3 million US was funnelled to the Movement for Justice and Development, a London-based dissident organization that operates the Barada TV satellite channel, which broadcasts anti-government news into Syria. Another $6 million went to support a variety of initiatives, including training for journalists and activists, between 2006 and 2010."
Does anyone seriously think the US spent more then 12 million dollars to fund and train anti-government "journalist and activists" since 2006, for no reason at all?
The overthrow of the Assad government has been in the cards for a while.
Today the BBC is reporting that armed groups have ambushed and killed Syrian soldiers and civilians.
Six Syrian soldiers and three civilians have been killed in an ambush by an armed group in central Syria, state media says.
Syria, as Libya was, is being targeted ostensibly under the claim of protection of civilians
A further 17 people were wounded as gunmen ambushed the bus near Hama, Sana reported, adding that three gunmen were killed in an ensuing gunfight.
"Responsibility to Protect" I wonder which PR firm was employed to dream that slogan up?
This is what "Responsibility to Protect" looks like in practice.
