For example, the common
thread through the crises in Ukraine, Libya and Syria is a clever
but ruthless playbook of regime-change. This stratagem of toppling
governments while appearing noble should perhaps be called
the "geopolitics of crocodile tears."
The fundamental ploy in Libya, Syria and Ukraine was the same:
The coup is carried out in many stages:
Let's hop on the time
machine back to 2011.
The beginning is always
peaceful and this sets the tone of the narrative. But truly peaceful
protests always fizzle out when there is no major crisis in a
For example, with 10 provocateurs and 100 well-paid community leaders, one can easily create a protest of few thousand people and then turn it into a riot.
Once chaos begins, mob
mentality sets in, and then innocent protesters morph into dangerous
Libya was a stable and wealthy country under Gaddafi:
Similarly, Syria was prosperous and safe.
Millions of tourists visited Syria every year because it was beautiful, free and safe.
In Ukraine, the economy wasn't so great and people weren't too happy with the politicians, but that's normal for Ukraine.
So how do you organize protests in such situations?
Who can be against that? The media always makes sure that these protests are labeled "spontaneous."
Of course, most people outside these countries believe the narrative.
Act 2 - Scene 1: Provocateurs and Snipers
This is where peaceful protests turn violent and bloody.
However, there is a twist in the plot that is hidden from the public:
These trained provocateurs would attack the police/military and burn down government buildings. Some of them are like Antifa, but others are professional militants armed with lethal weapons and trained to kill.
In Syria, even before the protests spread to other places, dozens of Syrian military soldiers were ambushed and shot to death. (I describe the events in Syria in details in my book, Syria - War of Deception).
Then, at the end of Act 2 Scene 1, snipers come in to radically alter the story. Carefully placed on rooftops and tall buildings, the snipers target the police and the protesters. When the police are shot at, they naturally assume that the bullets came from the protesters, and so the police fire back.
Sometimes there are also provocateurs with guns on the ground among the protesters, and they shoot at the police as well.
Ignoring all these, the global media and the politicians have only one narrative regarding all three countries:
(Example: NPR's article discussing in June 2011 an incident where 120 Syrian soldiers were massacred and mutilated by the "peaceful protesters.")
Act 2 - Scene 2: Political/Economic Attack
Regarding Libya, Merkel said right away that Gaddafi was waging war on his own people.
Western media screamed that Gaddafi was firing on his own people. The White House condemned Gaddafi for using mass violence against his own people. A month later, the exact phrase was used against Assad.
In Assad's case, this propaganda would last for the next six years, and later expanded to,
In Ukraine, after the president was ousted, he was charged with,
This technique is a well-known form of psychological warfare and is called atrocity propaganda.
With crocodile tears and faux outrage, the West came up with UN resolutions against Syria and Libya, which were probably written months before.
Act 3 - Bloodless Coup
In Ukraine, the West used neo-Nazis rather than jihadists as the provocateurs.
The CIA befriended pro-Nazi Ukrainians (who were thus anti-Russian) right after WW II and the relationship never went away.
Yanukovych was a democratically elected President of Ukraine who had also twice been the Prime Minister. In 2004, he won the Presidency, but George Soros organized a "color revolution" and clamored for a new election.
Lo and behold, the pro-US candidate won with 51% of the vote in the new election.
Then six years later, Yanukovych ran again and won the presidency fair and square. Four years into his presidency, he was simply driven out of the country by the US/EU coalition.
This is the reality of U.S. spreading "democracy." You are free to choose whoever you want, as long as it's the right candidate.
In Libya and Syria, Gaddafi and Assad were tough and not so willing to give up easily.
Within a month after the first protest in Libya and Syria, the UN had passed resolutions that authorized arming "civilians" (aka jihadists), and also gave NATO the right to shoot down Libyan planes.
The Orwellian term "No Fly Zones" meant that only Gaddafi couldn't fly his planes, but NATO/US planes could. On March 19, one month after the protests started, the US started bombing Libya with Tomahawk missiles.
Act 4 - Civil War
In Libya and Syria, weapons and money poured from the outside to fuel the civil war.
Libya fell within a year, since NATO acted as the air force for the terrorists and destroyed Gaddafi's planes, tanks and arsenals.
In Syria, less than half of 1% of the population joined the armed militia. This is why the "revolution" faltered after a few months, and tens of thousands of foreign jihadists had to fly into Syria.
Thanks to the billions of dollars of cash and weapons from benevolent Saudi Arabia, Qatar and others, the war went on for six years, destroying a prosperous country and ruining the lives of 20 million people.
Trail of Chaos
Six years later,
So this is the geopolitical strategy of protests, proxy wars, and propaganda.
Americans need to wake up, understand geopolitics, and demand an end to these expensive and immoral wars of chaos, misery and destruction...
