Joint US/Israeli 'contingency' plan aka attack plan for Syria. Updated!

 This post has been updated twice scroll down............


While the US prepares to arm rebels and after its confirmation that the Syrian army has used chemical weapons and crossed the much debated "red line", Time Magazine published a detailed account of how and when the US and Israel plan to destroy President Bashar Assad's chemical weapons stockpile.

The plan to destroy alleged chems is cover for airstrikes on Syria

According to the report, the two countries have formed a number of contingency plans in case Assad's regime falls or rebels near the weapon caches, mandating a speedy Western response, in an attempt to prevent Syria's weapons of mass destruction from falling into the wrong hands.
Israeli intelligence officials are quoted as telling Time that one of the possible scenarios for the attacks – which supposedly target some 18 different caches – is a sudden disappearance on Assad's part, either as a result of his death, fleeing to another country or going into hiding

According to Time's report, the Israeli official stressed that it has yet to be decided whether Israel or the US would conduct the attack.
What is clear is that according to the Israeli, the American plans include placing ground forces in Syria and launching a number of attacks, promising such arms are indeed neutralized.
The Israeli is further reported as telling Time that the transfer of American F-16 jets to Jordan as well as the placement of US Patriot missiles – allegedly as part of a military exercise – were intended as a message to Syria.

“It’s a clear, purposeful, presence of a strike force near the border of Syria,” he noted, adding: “I think it’s a message, a clear message,” not only to Syria, but also to Iran, as the force is “only a short leap (from) the Gulf.”

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday any attempt to enforce such a no-fly zone over Syria using F-16 fighter jets and Patriot missiles from Jordan would violate international law.

"There have been leaks from Western media regarding the serious consideration to create a no-fly zone over Syria through the deployment of Patriot anti-aircraft missiles and F-16 jets in Jordan," said Lavrov, speaking at a joint news conference with his Italian counterpart.

"You don't have to be a great expert to understand that this will violate international law," he added.

As part of the more candid cooperation between the Israel and the US, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon met with his American counterpart, US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

Update # 1:
The link to the TIME  article- 
TIME: The Syrian War: Israel and US coordinate how to target....

Update # 2 :
ht to Neo from comments in the previous post: The end of Syria as we know it 

'Pentagon planners and the White House have “budgeted” for more than 50,000 additional lives that will be lost in the coming months, as the price of toppling the Assad government.'
Pentagon and White House have "budgeted" for more than 50,000 additional lives to be lost in the comings months as the price of toppling Assad
Yup, that's right up the human slaughter stats for humanitarian assistance
A part of this “humanitarian assistance” the US is going to established in the coming weeks a “limited, humanitarian no-fly zone, that will begin along several  miles of the Jordanian and Turkish borders in certain military areas into Syrian territory, and would be set up  and presented as a limited bid  to train and equip rebel forces and protect refugees. But in reality, as we saw in Libya a Syrian no fly zone would very likely include all of Syria.

 According to the accounts published in American media, Obama could alternatively authorize the arming and training of the Syrian opposition in Jordan without a no-fly zone. That appears unlikely because the Pentagon wants to end the Syrian crisis by summers end


  1. The Time magazine article-
    The Syrian War: Israel and U.S. Coordinating How to Target Assad’s Arsenal

    In fact, of course, Israel is closely involved already, and in more ways than they are acknowledged publicly. Israeli military officials tell TIME that American intelligence had the same information that Brig. Gen. Itai Brun cited in his April 23 presentation to a public conference – video footage showing victims foaming at the mouth, and other indicators that made it clear that sarin had been used on the battlefield more than once. “We are sharing,” one Israeli intelligence official said at the time. “We have our cards on the table with the Americans for a long time. They’ve had all this information.”

    Clearly Israel is in the driving seat.
    So they really are going to use that ridiculous shaving-foam video, that we saw weeks ago, as 'proof' - what chutzpah!

    Comical shaving foam film-
    Foaming at the Mouth

    A US Vet exposes the fraud-

  2. The pressure is being applied to see if Russia will blink. I doubt it will. Putin is not the sort to bluff on something this important. Thus leaving the US once again in a tough place.
    Israel is pressuring the US directly and through Britain and France to "do something!". But the US has lots to lose plus it wouldn't be surprising if a large section of the US military is not onboard with attacking Syria and risking a war with Russia. And especially for the country that pulled off the WTC demolitions.

    Notice that the Patriot missiles and the fighter jets will (supposedly) be launched from Jordan and not israel (just in case Syria shoots back!). Oh what joy to be an ally of israel's! I see the fun has gone out of it for Turkey, though.

  3. put up or shut up time. Putin your move

    1. No, it's not Putin's move. The US hasn't done anything or even committed to doing anything yet. They're 'considering' their options.

      At this stage all Putin has to do is wait. And he will. He'll wait until the US and israel screw up or back down.

    2. Putin explicitly walked back the Syrian claim that air defense had been delivered. The US then escalated under the auspices of a joint drill. The US rolled in marines off the Kearsarge and equipment up into Jordan - reportedly along with the F16.

      Israel has the ended up with he worst of all worlds: Assad running the rebels over and Iran electing the moderate.

      In the meantime there were a stream of interesting articles this week as all this is playing out:

      Is this coincidental timing? or is there more to the story...

      Germany the most snooped on country?

      Germany repatriation request, just in case...

      "Meanwhile, Israel itself receives submarines from Germany that can be upgraded to nuclear weapons. "That's a contribution to Israeli stability," Christian Mölling from the SWP says. "This way, Israel is ready to defend itself."

      Is the Saudi King brain dead?

      Is a Saudi spring on the Horizon and are Germany and the US backing the same elements?

    3. Another curious development:
      Berlusconi being reported - by partisan paper that is - that he wanted Gadafi eliminated.

      Recall it was the Italians who called for an immediate halt to bombing which was subsequently followed up with a US SPR release and then the concerted attack on Italian bond yields which ultimately led to Berlusconi stepping down.

      Following the drama the FT ran this very telling headline:

      Berlusconi was also one of only 2 western leaders to attend Putin inauguration

      Berlusconi resigns just as 10Yr yields peak

      Back to Algeria for a moment, in view of the current leadership void - President's stroke - what to make of this plane crash late last year in an uninhabited area in France. "The plane carried five military personnel and one official of the Algerian national bank, the Algerian defense ministry said. It had taken off from Paris and was returning to Algeria."

      President falls ill

      There is increasing speculation in Algeria that Bouteflika won't run for re-election in April as planned, setting off a succession struggle in the oil-rich nation — Africa's largest by area.

      Algeria is being served up in anther challenge to the special relationship with Russia...

      "Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has started his trip to Africa with a visit to Algeria. The two countries see eye to eye on all key issues of international politics. They highly appreciate the role of the UN Security Council in supporting international stability and believe that international law should be the only ground for settling conflicts."

    4. The US is still posturing. They have not made a move (such as an air attack) or a commitment (such as declaring a no-fly zone) that they can't back away from.

    by Margaret Flowers / June 15th, 2013

    The Turkish Health Ministry issued a threat to take medical licenses to practice away from doctors who have been providing treatment to the protesters in Istanbul. They are also demanding the names of all medical volunteers including Emergency Medicine Technicians. This threat constitutes a violation of the human right of the protesters to receive treatment and the principle of medical neutrality.

  7. Israel's quisling in Egypt follows his orders:

    Syria condemns 'irresponsible' Egypt move to cut ties

    "The Syrian Arab Republic condemns this irresponsible position," an unnamed Syrian official told state news agency SANA.

    The official said Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi had joined the "conspiracy and incitement led by the United States and Israel against Syria by announcing the cutting of ties yesterday".

    "Syria is confident that this decision does not represent the will of the Egyptian people," the official added, accusing Morsi of announcing the severing of ties to deflect attention from internal crises.

    Morsi, an Islamist who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood, announced Saturday the "definitive" severing of ties with war-torn Syria, and the recall of Egypt's charge d'affaires in Damascus.

    He called for the international community to impose a no-fly zone and denounced the role of Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah in Syria, where its members are helping the army battle rebels."

    Iran helps out Syria in the face of the increased zionist aggression:

    Iran sends 4,000 troops to aid Assad in Syria - report

    Russia seeks closer ties to Iran:

    Russia urges closer ties with Iran following Rowhani win - Putin

    But, as expected, the Jewish oligarchy demands more of the same bs:

    Netanyahu calls on world continue pressure on Iran after election

    A warning:

    Middle East may be in for "big regional war" - Duma deputy

    The head of the Russian State Duma's International Affairs Committee claimed on Sunday that the Middle East is in danger of a "big regional war."

    "In response to the U.S. moves Iran is sending 4,000 troops to Syria. So the West, Israel and radical Sunnis versus Shiites. A big regional war," Alexei Pushkov tweeted."

    Protests continue in Turkey to be brutally attacked:

    Turkey PM says was his 'duty' to 'clean up' protest park

    But that seems to have incensed more people, rather than silence them:

    Turkish unions call Monday strike over protest violence

  9. National Kurdish Movement: First shipment of US military aid for terrorists arrived to borders

    "The National Kurdish Movement for Peaceful change said in a statement issued on Saturday that it received information that the first shipment of US military aid arrived on Friday to the Syrian-Turkish borders.

    The statement said that this shipment includes advanced heavy weaponry and heat-seeking missiles, and that this coincides with attempts to rally armed groups to attack Efrin area in Aleppo countryside.

    The statement underlined some recent developments in Aleppo province, which include an attack by armed groups on the village of Maarsaka in Efrin on Thursday, a random shelling by terrorists on the village of al-Mazra'a under cover of units from the Turkish army."

  11. US using no-fly zone to justify direct intervention in Syria : Ralph Schoenman

    "Press TV has conducted an interview Ralph Schoenman, political commentator, Berkeley, about accusations by the Western alliance against the Syrian government over alleged use of chemical weapons whilst training al-Qaeda militants to use CWs.

    The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.

    Press TV: What implications would a ‘no-fly zone’ have on the situation in Syria?

    Schoenman: A no-fly zone is an actual indication for the United States to repeat the model they used in Libya, namely it would attack the forces in Syria and it would use any attempt on the part of the Syrian government to defend itself or to use its air force as a provocation to the United States and a justification for direct intervention.

    It should be pointed out that the Associated Press reported today that quote, “The international reaction to the claims that Sarin gas was used by the Syrian government have been met with total disbelief and skepticism. The international reaction ranges from flat-out disbelief at United States assertions to immediate calls for negotiations.

    So even the normal response of established media of countries across the world has been discounting and in effect repudiating the claims. And it’s understandable as to why...

    This has already been assessed by the United Nations Carlo Del Ponte who refuted the evidence that was advanced by the United States of use of Sarin by the Syrian government in addition to which in Turkey the al-Nusra mercenaries were found trying to use Sarin gas in Turkey and to attribute that attack, which they staged, to the government of al-Assad. There were headlines everywhere, but not in the United States..."

    As Israel will be using the USA more than the others to attack Syria, it is necessary for the zionist Jewish controlled media in the USA to prevent Americans from finding out the facts about the war crimes their country commits for its Israeli master.

    British PM warned about Syria invasion

    "British Prime Minister David Cameron has been warned not to even think about intervening in Syria militarily at a time when his coalition government is cutting thousands of army jobs..."

    The Israeli quislings are facing opposition from both the left and the right in Britain.

  13. Surge by Iran-Hizbullah-Syria axis stuns Israeli intelligence community

    Zionist propaganda panic piece essentially saying: "we must kill Syria quick before they wipe out our proxies, and then come south, with Iran and Hezbollah, for revenge".

    That's a new line of propaganda as far as I know, a Syria-Iran-Hezbollah alliance hellbent to invade Israel.

    A bit different Israeli view of Syria than the bs Chomsky recently said:

    Noam Chomsky Interview: Sykes-Picot Is Failing

    "MZ: Would you link Obama’s decision to arm the Syrian revolution with Israel?

    NC: These are separate. First of all, Israel was not opposed to Assad. He has been more or less the kind of dictator they wanted. He has done the kind of things they wanted. The US has no opposition to Assad. He was cooperating on intelligence and they did not like everything, but he was pretty satisfactory.

    In fact, if Israel and the US really did want to undermine the Assad regime and to support the rebels, they have very straightforward ways to do it without arms. Israel could considerably mobilize forces in the Golan Heights. If they mobilize forces in the north, the Syrians are compelled to respond by mobilizing forces. But they do not do it, which can only mean they do not want the regime to fall."

    Another zionist obfuscater with a similar propaganda line:

    Iran to send 4,000 troops to aid President Assad forces in Syria

    "Only once over the past two years has Israel fully condemned atrocities committed by the Assad regime, and while it has given medical help to wounded rebels on the Israeli-Syrian border, it fears an Islamist caliphate in Damascus far more than a continuation of Assad’s rule. One former Israel intelligence commander recently described Assad as “Israel’s man in Damascus”.

    The fact that these 2 zionist assets would still be making the false claim of Israel being behind Assad is mind blowing. That zionist propaganda line was debunked a long time ago, and the Israels make no secret of their support for the terrorists and the intensification of the war. These zionist shills apparently are preprogrammed, and incapable of adapting their propaganda on their own to changing realities. They'll rattle off the same old bs till their batteries wind down...

  14. Front paged on the Yahoo news site:

    Putin says West arming Syrian rebels who eat human flesh

    "One does not really need to support the people who not only kill their enemies, but open up their bodies, eat their intestines in front of the public and cameras," Putin said.

    "Are these the people you want to support? Are they the ones you want to supply with weapons? Then this probably has little relation to the humanitarian values preached in Europe for hundreds of years."

    The article is full of the usual zionist propaganda otherwise, but one other thing it mentioned was that:

    "Washington has 4,500 troops in Jordan carrying out exercises."

    I had thought the number less. it's usual for support troops to be included in such figures, and they usually number as many as fighting troops, or more. Even so, those 1000-2000 fighting troops could be a serious menace to the people of Syria if they started running raids across the border. The effect could be multiplied many time if the Israelis and Turks invaded. That would put the Syrians between 3 attack forces, south, north and east. Those Iranian troops being sent will be a welcome, needed addition for the Syrians defending against zionist aggression and terrorism.

    вот так

    1. Yes, the G 8 leaders have been really engaging in lots of back and forth
      Except Putin is the only one being truthful
      The rest... hahahaha
      Being Canadian Steven Harper's pronouncement was a huge laugh

  15. Just read a comment at SyrPer noting that the news of 4000 Iranian troops being sent to Syria originated in Israeli media and was then picked up by Fisk at the Independent. PressTV hasn't mentioned it, neither has Mehr News. This may be another Jewish propaganda ploy to create yet another reason to hype for attacking Syria.

    вот так

    1. hey bot tak
      yes, I saw that news also
      I wondered about the story? Credibility wise.
      Fisk is less then credible, often.

  16. Israeli Coordinator Meets Qatari Officials in London on Sending Arms to Syrian Rebels

    "Security sources in the Qatari government disclosed that Israel has sent its Coordinator on Syrian Affairs Afif Shavit to a meeting with Qatari officials in London late in May to discuss supply of more arms to the rebel groups fighting the Syrian government.

    "The 4-hour meeting was held in a house in Braum House in London belonging to Khalid a-Abeed, a Qatari citizen residing in Britain, on May 20," the source, who asked to remain anonymous due to the sensitivity of his information and for fear of his life, told FNA.

    "During the meeting, It was decided that Israel prepare and supply the weapons needed by the terrorists in Syria and enter negotiations with European arms manufacturing companies on arms purchases and money transfer methods, and the Qatari side cover the funds and needed budget for purchases," added the source.

    The meeting was held at a time when the EU decided to lift the arms embargo on foreign-backed militants in Syria. British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on May 28 that European Union foreign ministers meeting in Brussels have reached an agreement to lift the arms embargo on militants in Syria, while maintaining other sanctions on the country. The EU also decided to allow the European banks to open branches and accounts in Syria for use by the opposition...."

    Putin Dismisses Super Bowl Ring Theft, Ready to Repay Kraft

    "Putin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov reiterated Sunday that Kraft gave the ring willingly and witnessed the presentation with his own eyes. He dismissed Kraft’s story as “weird.”

    “If the gentleman is really experiencing such excruciating pain from his loss ... the president is ready to send him any other ring he can buy for that kind of money,” Peskov said from London, where Putin met with British Prime Minister David Cameron on Sunday.

    The ring, which Peskov said is stored in the Kremlin’s library, is believed to be worth upwards of $15,000."
