Plan B for Syria: Preparations, Part 2

This article is a continuation on the theme of a post put up on Friday: Obama needs a Plan B for Syria: Drawing In Lebanon? I will put the third part up tomorrow in hopes of keeping this enjoyably readable

 Looking at the influx of heavy weapons into Syria. Through what means do the arms flow.
And, what does the arms flow mean?

A new influx of weapons to rebels tilts battle against Assad- Washington Post
A surge of rebel advances in Syria is being fueled at least in part by an influx of heavy weaponry in a renewed effort by outside powers to “arm moderates” in the Free Syrian Army, according to Arab and rebel officials.

“arm moderates”
You know that is pure mind control. There is no discernment, no discrimination on where these heavy weapons are directed. Propaganda pure and simple that will be ignored here, in favour of the facts.

The new armaments, including anti-tank weapons and recoilless rifles, have been sent across the Jordanian border into the province of Daraa in recent weeks

The officials declined to identify the source of the newly provided weapons but they noted that the countries most closely involved in supporting the rebels’ campaign to oust Assad......

The "countries most closely involved in supporting the rebels" /NATO mercs to oust Assad. Which nations might those be?
“They include the United States and its major European allies, along with Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the two countries most directly involved in supplying the rebels”

“The idea was to get heavier stuff, intensify supply”

Louay al-Mokdad, the political and media coordinator for the Free Syrian Army, confirmed that the rebels have procured new weapons donated from outside Syria

Donated? How very charitable. More spin. More perception management.
Another coordinator for the Free Syrian Army, whose units have received small quantities of donated weaponry in the past two weeks

The goal of the supplies also is to shift the focus of the war away from the north toward the south and the capital.

Clearly an expansion of this ongoing attack is at hand.
What other nation would be playing a role in distributing weapons near the capital of Syria.
The obvious answer is..... Israel.

Jerusalem Post acknowledges Israel’s role in the movement of weapons near Damascus. Israel the destabilizer of Syria:

Israel is closely "monitoring" the transfer of certain kinds of weapons to Syrian rebel groups

                                     Free Syria Army member with an assault rifle

Monitoring defined: Observe and check the progress or quality of (something) over a period of time; keep under systematic review” 
 Therefore, if Israel is “monitoring”, it should be stated categorically, that Israel is overseeing the distribution and transferal of weapons into Syria over a  period of time.

 By overseeing the weapons distribution Israel is then able to monitor weapons transfers to the NATO mercs destabilizing Syria.
Refresh your memory with the post from last week because this is where the previously mentioned field hospital comes into play Israel to set up field hospital to aid 'Syrian' refugees

As Freethinker correctly observed regarding the  multi-purpose field hospital

I suspect any field hospital will also be used as an interrogation and intelligence centre.
And provide cover for weapons distribution!

Back to JP

“Israel isn’t going to interfere and stop weapons shipments to the rebels at this point, but it wants to make sure it knows what they have”

Of course Israel isn’t going to interfere. They are encouraging. Aiding. Assisting.
Lots of spin in the JP article along the same line as the WP piece. NATO media always stays on message.
 Arms going to the “right” terrorists as opposed to the “wrong” terrorists, of course.

Now back to WP article;
Why move more weapons into the South of Syria?
Rebel gains across the north of the country over the past year were posing no major threat to the regime in Damascus.
“Daraa and Damascus are the key fronts on the revolution, and Damascus is where it is going to end,” he said.
The M-79 anti-tank weapons in particular appear to be giving the rebels new confidence to attack government positions and armor, said Jeff White of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, who says he also noted the unexpected appearance of the weapons in rebel videos several weeks ago.
Though there have been scattered sightings of the new weapons in other parts of the country, including Aleppo as well as Idlib and Deir al-Zour
Hamwi said he suspects the real aim of the international effort is to provide the rebels with just enough firepower to pressure Assad into accepting a negotiated settlement but not enough to enable them to overthrow him

Really? Not enough weapons to overthrow Assad?

Yet, the WP article ends with this

Although plans for an offensive on Damascus are being readied.....



    Prisoner X off the headlines with talk of 3rd Intifada; What was X doing in Italy?

    Arafat fidings coming soon....

    1. Talk of a 3rd Intifada....
      Arafat findings coming soon
      add ingredients and stir the pot?

      Prisoner X in Italy? I am vaguely familiar with that whole scenario, but, not enough to comment fully
      What was the time frame for his visit to Italy?

    2. Italian job

      ABC said sources have told the Foreign Correspondent programme that Zygier gave Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) officials information that included plans for a top-secret mission in Italy that had been years in the making.

      ABC said it understood Zygier was one of three Australian Jews working for Mossad who changed their names several times, taking out new passports as they travelled in the Middle East and Europe.

      Zygier reportedly set up a Europe-based communications company for Mossad that exported electronic components to Arab countries as well as Iran, a venture that employed the two other dual citizens. — AFP

      Or even this?

      Is this related to the ENI and Finmecciania scandals (Algeria and India - two battleground geographies, no)?

      Yesterday:Rosneft and ENI to strengthen cooperation through logistics deal

      Another interesting development on the Hagel nomination...this time it is India
      In a sharp contrast to US view on India's role in Afghanistan, President Barack Obama's defence secretary nominee Chuck Hagel has alleged that India has over the years "financed problems" for Pakistan in the war-torn country. Hagel, during the speech said, "India for some time has always used Afghanistan as a second front, and India has over the years financed problems for Pakistan on that side of the border".

    3. Zygier reportedly set up a Europe-based communications company for Mossad that exported electronic components to Arab countries as well as Iran, a venture that employed the two other dual citizens. — AFP

      The Syrian angle...funny, no one knows of anything going into Syria??
      How is that possible?
      Makes me wonder if these companies were involved with setting the nato mercs up with all their fancy internet opposed to being engaged by the Assad government?

      Anonymous linkie person: you kick butt !! :)

    4. "ENI and Finmecciania scandals (Algeria and India - two battleground geographies, no)?"

      Yes, they are. In fact I heard reported today "India has slammed reported remarks made by US President Barack Obama’s nominee for defence secretary, Chuck Hagel, that India over the years “financed problems” for Pakistan in Afghanistan."

      India has financed problems for Pakistan in Afghanistan?
      Why is Hagel making statements such as that, at this time?
      Could it have anything to do with the trade between India and Iran?
      Could it have anything to do with the Iran/ Pak pipeline being constructed in Baluchistan province?

      Is the US trying to appear sympathetic to Pakistan?

      Back to the scandal..
      I see Berlusconi was hoping to score some political points on that one, the buffoon
      The ptb's couldn't steal that election for that dolt, no doubt they tried

  2. Pen, related info here

    1. ty ap

      It makes sense. There is an occasional commenter here kaspi from Georgia, who has left information indicating that weapons were flowing,, along with fighters...
      from that direction.

      "The radicalization of population in Kosovo is boosted by total unemployment and spreading criminality."

      Kosovo being nothing more then at NATO narco/human/body parts trafficking state would be prime for radicalization.

      And the Kosovo government is pretty much filled with radical jihadist KLA.
      Nato's Islamist mercs from way back...

      Therefore if they have radicalized the population it would be unsurprising

  3. hasnt Osama....sorry Obama.. heard of the Bush Doctrine?

    Bush expanded on that when he addressed a joint session of Congress on September 20. He said, "We will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime."

    In October 2001, U.S. and allied troops invaded Afghanistan, where intelligence indicated the Taliban government was harboring Al Qaeda.

    also its illegal under US law to send aid to terrorists....Palestinian groups in US who sent money to Gaza were penalised....idea was aid was going to HAMAS
