So we shall pick up with that thought in mind-
Of course, it is rather obvious that Syria has long been under attack by the West in a covert rather then overt manner. Covert to those who don’t pay attention.
Obvious to those that do.
I think the tactics may be about to change.
Will it be on the ground? Or airstrikes? How will it be promoted?
First there is of course the “humanitarian” ruse with UN approval
You knowing bombing, killing, maiming and destroying to “save” people.
And seriously, how screwed up is your thinking to buy into that concept at all?!
Without UN “approval” to dress up the slaughter of Syrians, this angle might not play out well to the supporters of humanitarian "intervention". This bunch needs approval for their killing agenda.
Option #2: Perhaps the “war on terror” angle can be played out?
Turkey will need to defend itself from Kurdish attacks of “terror”
Option # 3: Maybe there will be a coalition of the willing? More truthfully, a coalition of killers killing.
The NATO/Israeli expansionist imperial agenda is not without options, should the phoney legitimisation of the UN fail.
As always, for reasons of perspective and context we have to step back to move forward-
From March 5/2012, the nearing of the one year anniversary of the destabilization beginnings is at hand.
In that post there was a brief mention that the EU had recognized the Syrian National Council in Turkey.
That surely was one of the most under reported news story in this whole Syrian saga.
The EU recognition move took place on Friday March 02/12.
What the media was focusing on at that time was the “tactical withdrawal” of the fighters from Homs. Which took place March 01/2012
Was the fighters tactical withdrawal done in advance of the next step in the NATO destruction of Syria?
The media coverage of the EU recognition was virtually non-existent.
Still to this date (March 12/12) there is only a handful of stories.
Quoting from this story
The European Union recognized the Syrian National Council as a “legitimate representative of Syrians,” the 27-nation bloc said in draft conclusions from a summit in Brussels today.
“The European Union supports the Syrian opposition in its struggle for freedom, dignity and democracy, recognizes the Syrian National Council as a legitimate representative of Syrians and calls upon all members of the Syrian opposition to unite in its peaceful struggle,” a sentence added to the draft conclusions overnight said.
Individual members of the EU, including the U.K., have already recognized the SNC."
The UK beat the EU to the punch! Is it a pretty safe bet that France did also?
Given they have been knee deep in the destabilization with their best “philosopher” Bernard Henri Levy preaching attacks on Syria.? With the special ops soldiers being arrested in Syria?
It just makes sense that France had already jumped the gun and recognized the SNC.
- March 10 we see Qatar calling on Arab and “western” states to recognize the SNC.
Surely Qatar is aware that the EU has already done the deed?!
Is this really a call for the Arab nations that were not on board with yet another overthrow?
Or a call to the US? Or a ruse to create a coalition of the willing?
March 10 also has the main stream media reporting a "fresh assault" on towns in Idlib province.
This isn't "fresh". It seems that this is a continuation of a strategy by the Syrians to get the Turkish backed rebels back into Turkey.
To prevent, as I have mentioned repeatedly, the carving out of a NATO no fly zone.
"Reports of this latest military operation raised fears that Assad's regime was planning a new all-out offensive in Idlib.
Military reinforcements poured into Idlib this week, including dozens of tanks and armoured personnel carriers"
Today the msm is carrying more stories on the tactical clean up of foreign rebel fighters in Syria.
With reports from “activists” which of course are rife with the tales of so called innocent protestors/civilians being harmed.
Of course the media never asks why the FSA backed by NATO and Turkey is putting their rebels in the cities and towns of Syria?
Putting Syrian civilians in harms way? Compliant media.
The FSA is reporting their killing of Syrian soldiers. Ten of them ambushed at a checkpoint.
This is likely true, the NATO backed fighters have always been quite proud of their deadly accomplishments.
"Syrian army defectors killed at least 10 soldiers in an ambush in the northern town of Idlib on Tuesday, a rights activist said.
“At least 10 Syrian soldiers have been killed by army defectors in the northern town of Idlib,”
“They were killed during an early morning ambush on a government checkpoint,”
Idlib province backs onto Turkey and has been a focal point of clashes between government forces and the “lightly armed” (bullshit) Syrian Free Army (SFA), which has vowed to topple Assad.
Sounds about right. The Syrian government would have had the military set up checkpoints to keep foreign invaders out. They were ambushed and quite likely foreign fighters poured in through the unmanned checkpoint afterwards.
Despite the mind control spin of the western msm it is clear Syria is under attack.
One can get that knowledge without going to Syrian media. It is in the details, the information no one pays attention to once they have glanced at headlines or got their talking points from the talking heads on the idiot box.
Let’s take a peek at these foreign fighters? Who have apparently come from all over including Pakistan. Yes, Pakistan!
Sunni fighters- usually associated with terror in Pakistan have appeared in Syria.- Though not named , lets speculate that they are TTP or Tehrik e Taliban of Pakistan.
A Sunni group that usually targets the Shi’ite population in Pakistan or Afghanistan to foment sectarian violence. Divide to conquer. As needed, one could say.
Sunni jihadists from Pak fighting in Syria battlefields
“Foreign Sunni jihadists, including a few from Pakistan, are fighting alongside Syrian rebels who have taken on President Bashar al-Assad,”
Definitely not Syrians!
While denying that there are many foreigners battling Syrian forces, he said “there are a few, of different nationalities. But we are mostly Syrians.” (Not)
While the numbers are difficult to pin down, one international expert said that, in a violence-wracked country, the possibility of foreign fighters participating in a rebellion always exist.
That international ‘expert’ mouthpiece is Peter Harling from the International Crisis Group- another NGO that has that NATO stink to it.
In mid-February, an observer with the Arab League in Homs told AFP that "many foreign fighters," including Pakistanis, Afghans, Lebanese, Iraqis, Sudanese, Libyans and Yemenis led most of the fighting and "dominated everybody."
Based on my own reading, the report of the Arab League Observer in Homs-" Many foreign fighters" is most accurate!
No doubt all of them western backed assets. Al Quaeda, Libyan Fighters, Turks, TTP, mercenaries and special ops. And of course, not to be forgotten, Mossad
One of the above linked article mentions landmines being laid by Syrian troops-
War is dirty isn’t it? Personally, I hate land mines.
However, since Turkey has insisted on sending all sorts of fighters across the border and giving them cover in the “refugee camps” what can be expected?
Don't take this as an endorsement of sorts. It isn't
Here's more on that topic
ON THE TURKISH-SYRIAN BORDER —
The Syrian military in the past month planted a band of anti-personnel mines along stretches of the border with Turkey.
The Syrian military had planted the mines in early to mid-February for more than a mile along the border near Jisr al Shughur.
Mines were also planted about 12 miles to the north, in Guvecci.
If you had fighters pouring over the border and causing mayhem in your country, what course of action would be undertaken by the government and the military?
According to this report, were supposed to believe this was done to "target fleeing civilians"
'the military informed those residents of Jisr that if they needed to go to the border area to tend their fields, they should approach the military first"Does that sound like the targeting of civilians?
Some of you may recall Jisr Al Shugur from news around June 2011?
When fighters came into Syria via Turkey and slaughtered many Syrian soldiers then fled back into Turkey right across the border and into those infamous "refugee camps" that Death Angel(ina) visited for her UN psy-operation.
If NATO can’t get their no fly zone using the Muslim Brotherhood, Salafist, Alquaeda and all other manner of foreign fighters/rebels to accomplish this goal, is Turkeywilling to change tactics?
Playing a different angle as cover for the real agenda at hand?
Heads Up for Part II
