Having already named the options to justify attacking Syria let's take a deeper look.
Quickly refreshing the 3 options
2-War on Terror
3- Coalition of the Willing
NATO can’t get the no fly/humanitarian zone using Muslim Brotherhood, Salafist, Alquaeda rebels and other assorted thugs to carve a chunk out of Syria. Nor can they have their illegitimate actions legitimised through a mandate given to them by the UN arm of NATO world army. What with Russia and China still refusing to go along with the agenda-.........
Out goes option # 1.
Onto # 2
The number 2 option on the list, employing a “war on terror” tactic.
Turkey is definitely considering that option. Using the wild card Kurds as the enemy of convenience?
When it comes to Kurdish rebels, Turkey doesn't have a problem invading Syria.
As we are about to read-
“The government of Turkey is prepared to seek the approval of its parliament in order to deploy its forces in Syrian territory should the violence escalate and pose a threat to Turkey’s national security,“ warned Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Thursday.
Davutoglu’s warning comes after an investigation by Turkish intelligence revealed that members of the PKK (Kurdistan Worker’s Party), which is classified as a terrorist organization, infiltrated Turkey from the Syrian border. “Turkey will not allow Syria to use Kurdish terror against Turkey“
Turkey is indicating they are ready to take the battle to the next level on behalf of their masters in Brussels. US and Turkish Military are conducting “exercises” until March 15/2012.
Clapper said these large-scale missions allow the two countries to practice executing operations together successfully.
Operations? To fight the terror caused by the Kurds?
As for Syria and the PKK? Doubtful. The PKK is pure Western sponsored terror. Look to the US and Israel as illegitimate fathers of those bastard sons. The Turkey/Kurd angle has been covered previously on a number of occasions, most recently here
If the war on terror option fails, onto number 3
#3- The Coalition of the Willing
Or as Monty Hall would have said in his hey day- Let’s look what’s behind door number 3
A coalition of the willing! Or my preferred name a coalition of the killing.
This is a tactic left over from the Bush junta.
When you can’t get UN approval, justify slaughter will a coalition of “do gooders”
I suspect that was why Qatar called for other nations to “recognize” the SNC.
Recently a Canadian Senator talked this line
A high-profile Conservative senator says Canada must be prepared to be part of a military operation with a "coalition of the willing" to end the bloodshed in Syria.
Sen. Hugh Segal told the Senate this week that Canada should work with the Arab League toOur friends in the Arab league?
Segal said the same setup, with the Arab League in the lead, should be planned for Syria. If planning isn't going on, he said, it should be.
"What you need to have is a coalition of the willing, preferably led by our friends in the Arab League," Segal said.
He doesn’t really mean the Arab League. The West uses that for cover.
What Senator Segal is referring to, of course, is the GCC. Gulf Cooperation Council.
The West’s left hand in the middle east.
If you think a coalition of the willing is to far-fetched don’t think it so.
Not with UK Defence Secretary Philip Hammond going tete a tete with the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and the Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces
Hammond, who met General Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, said: "We still believe in a peaceful solution for Syria, but we want to take nothing off the negotiating table.
The topic of the conversation between Gen. Shaikh Mohammed and Hammond was the military countries and the political challenges in the region.
Together with Gen. Shaikh Mohammed, we looked at a series of options to increase support to the UAE if issues emerged and we will also coordinate with our American partners
All in all, the minister declared himself very pleased with the UAE's and Qatar's "proactive" involvement in the Libyan crisis, as well as the very active role the Arab League and other Arab countries have taken in relation to the Syrian crisis.Very active indeed.
Options. Options. Options.
