In fact, Brookings actually stated in a recent report, "Assessing Options for Regime Change":
As if to alleviate any lingering doubts, NATO's "Alliance News Blog" has confirmed that the US is committed not to "peace," but rather to the overthrow of Syria's government and is,
The April 9, 2012 blog entry features an op-ed titled, "US 'already committed to helping Assad fall'," and fully admits that the US is equipping the so-called "Free Syrian Army" which has received weapons, leadership, and cash from the NATO-backed Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) terrorists led by notorious mass-murderer Abdul Hakim Belhaj.
And now, the Brookings Institution itself has predictably declared the Annan "peace deal" a failure and states that the time to "stretch" Syria's military to the breaking point through expanded foreign-backed unrest has come.
In an article titled, "Annan's Mission Impossible: Why is everyone pretending that the U.N. plan in Syria has a prayer of succeeding?" Brookings Doha Center director Salman Shaikh insults the intelligence of his readership while handing out useful talking points surely to be parroted by the corporate-media over the next few days and weeks.
Shaikh depicts the ceasefire's failure as solely
the result of the Syrian government's belligerence and brutality, while
mentioning nothing of the Syrian opposition's documented and even admitted
And while portraying the Syrian government as irrationally carrying out a campaign of brutality against the Syrian people, Shaikh admits that the "Free Syrian Army" is operating militarily out of Turkey and that the Syrian National Council (SNC) represents foreign harbored and influenced leadership.
While Shaikh portrays Syria's minorities as "on the sideline," he declines from explaining why they have not joined the foreign-driven unrest.
In reality, these groups have been the hardest hit by rebel atrocities, including Syria's large Christian communities.
Shaikh's shoddy salesmanship also reveals another truth - when he claims that,
Surely any opposition group that represented the vast majority of the Syrian people, as the UN and the corporate-media claim daily, would not have trouble finding the resources inside of Syria "alone."
In reality, the unrest in Syria is driven by a foreign-backed violent minority, carried out by a combination of violent Sunni-extremists from Syria and many foreign fighters brought in from abroad.
Many of Syria's real opposition find the "Free Syrian Army's"
collaboration with foreigners "unacceptable."
Shaikh's entire argument hinges on the creation
of a "genuine grand opposition coalition " that currently, admittedly,
France inexplicably then blamed the Syrian government for not providing adequate security for the UN monitors, after a year of condemning the government for attempting to restore order in the face of the very growing militant violence the attacks resulted from. And in recent weeks, everything from Human Rights Watch reports, to open admissions from the rebels themselves confirm that they are committing widespread human rights abuses and turning toward indiscriminate bombing tactics.
This indicates a threat Syria's government would
be remiss not to counter - and surely a threat the "international community"
would be remiss to continue supporting, funding, and even arming.
From there a steady stream of weapons and fighters from around the world will be funneled in, in an attempt to, as Brookings Shaikh puts it, stretch Syria's forces "to a breaking point."
To help convince Turkey to "take the plunge" for NATO, the Council on Foreign Relations has recently published a report attempting to flesh out an improved alliance between the US and Turkey - claiming the new relationship would trump the potential for US cooperation with any BRICS nation (except perhaps India).
This patronizing political stunt attempts to fill Turkish leaders with delusions of grandeur, tempting them with "goodies" ahead of falling on their swords for Wall Street and London's ambitions in Syria and Iran.
Turkish leaders might reassess such grandiose
claims and remember BRICS' growth and benefits are based on solidarity and
production, avoiding "alliances" with Wall Street, London, and their
institutions, while conversely, Wall Street and London's "benefits" are
based on domination, exploitation, betrayal, and unsustainable pyramid
It is in essence, a World War, currently being
fought with 4th generation
warfare to build a neo-imperial global
government. With overt efforts to destabilize nations around the world,
including Russia and China, the West's hand is revealed and there is no
Syria may seem like an isolated conflict, but is in reality linked to us directly, regardless of where we live.
Either we live in a nation that will be next, or a nation who will be further crushed under the hubris, power, and arrogance of an empowered Wall Street and London elite.
