Syria- The beat goes on, Part 2

Syria. You knew we had to get back to this topic right?
When I say the "beat goes on" I mean the continuing saga.
I have been following along with some of the news surrounding that nation's destabilization by the usual suspects.

So let's go!

Hillary Clinton met with the so called "Syrian Opposition" in Switzerland.
This was reported on December 5/2011

Mrs Clinton is expected to speak with seven opposition members in Geneva, where she is to give a speech on human rights. It will be her second meeting with opposition members in six months, following a similar gathering in Washington in July.

Isn't that interesting? Her second meeting with them....first one taking place in July?
Was she creating the opposition team at the time. Picking and choosing the "leadership"?

She will then attend a NATO foreign ministers meeting in Brussels and give a speech on Internet freedom in The Hague before flying back the America on Thursday.

She is so swell. What a humanitarian!

Or not

Syria accepted the Arab League observers, requesting changes to the wording of the agreement.
And no sanctions.

The Arab League, after being directed by their masters rejected Syria's offer.

The Arab League said it won’t lift sanctions imposed on Syria, after President Bashar al-Assad’s government demanded the removal of the sanctions as a condition for admitting observers.

My take on this Arab League tit for tat?
The Arab League is obviously getting their orders from on high - see Hilary above.
It is all a political game.
Arab League says this. Syria accepts the offer with conditions.
Conditions that will not be met.
The Arab is not really attempting to help resolve the situation in Syria and I would think that Syria is aware of the insincerity of the offer, but is attempting to buy some time.

US Ambassador Rob Ford is going back to Damascus
The US ambassador to Syria, who was removed from the country after threats to his safety, is due to return, US state department officials have said.

Robert Ford left the Syrian capital, Damascus, in late October.

He had angered Syrian authorities by showing solidarity with activists involved in an uprising against President Bashar al-Assad's rule.

Meanwhile, France's ambassador returned to Damascus on Monday having been recalled last month.

So first it was too dangerous for Robert Ford, but now it is not?
France's Ambassador is set to return also. In fact he there all ready. Rob Ford may be there at this time too.

We are supposed to believe that it was too dangerous for these men in Syria a month or so ago.
So they had to leave, for safety reasons.
But, now when we are supposed to believe that Syria is on the verge of civil war both Ambassadors are going back to Syria?
Is there a disconnect in the logic in this scenario?

It would appear that there is more destabilization work to be done. More death squads to arm.
Deaths squads you say? Death squads, I say!
Mystery death squads

Syria hit by mystery death squads

Shadowy death squads are operating in Syria’s flashpoint city of Homs, say anti-government activists in the country, from which foreign reporters are officially banned.
Someone should ask Robert Ford about death squads.

Refresh you memory here :US Ambassador Ford: A provocateur in Syria?

Ford's background related to Iraq, Negroponte and deaths squads

Since his arrival in Damascus in late Jan 2011, Ford played a central role in laying the groundwork as well as establishing contacts with opposition groups. A functioning US embassy in Damascus was seen as a precondition for carrying out a process of political destabilization leading to “regime change”. Ford is no ordinary diplomat. He was US representative in Jan 2004 to the Shi’ite city of Najaf in Iraq. Najaf was the stronghold of the Mahdi army. A few months later he was appointed “Number Two Man” (Minister Counsellor for Political Affairs) at the US embassy in Baghdad at the outset of Negroponte’s tenure as US Ambassador to Iraq (Jun 2004-Apr 2005). Ford subsequently served under Negroponte’s successor Zalmay Khalilzad prior to his appointment as Ambassador to Algeria in 2006. Negroponte’s mandate as US ambassador to Iraq (together with Ford) was to coordinate out of the US embassy, the covert support to death squads and paramilitary groups in Iraq with a view to fomenting sectarian violence and weakening the resistance movement. Ford as “Number Two” (Minister Counsellor for Political Affairs) at the US Embassy played a central role in this endeavor.

Ambassador Ford may be able to shed light on the "mystery death squad" ?
Since death squads appear to be his forte.
Not forgetting that Ambassador Ford has been a previous visitor to Homs!

Ford even visited Homs and Hama, the hotbeds of protest in the country, and held a meeting with the leaders of the opposition after Friday prayers. The violence in these towns, where the opposition has a following, usually peaks on Fridays after the afternoon prayers.
That cannot be a coincidence?
Robert Ford visits Homs, holds meetings with opposition after Friday prayers, and then violence peaks?
What the heck were these meetings about?
And curiously death squads appear in Homs?
Like I said, Ambassador Ford can surely shed some light on these mystery squads.

It looks as if more work needs to be done by the destroyers, before the final death blow on Syria.


  1. I amazes me that Syria doesn't throw out ALL the NATO countries' embassies. It must be absolutely clear to Assad that they have de facto declared war on Syria.

  2. Hey James

    If he did that would be considered a declaration of war, right?
