The encirclement of Syria and Lebanon has long been in the works.
Since 2001, Washington and NATO have started the process of cordoning off Lebanon and Syria.
The permanent NATO presence in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Syrian Accountability Act are part of this initiative. It appears that this roadmap is based on a 1996 Israeli document aimed at controlling Syria.
The document’s name is
A Clean Break - A New Strategy for Securing the Realm.
This is also why the anti-Syrian March 14
Alliance and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) were created in
The roadmap seeks to foment sectarian divisions
as a means of conquering Syria and creating a Shiite-Sunni rift that will
oppose Iran and keep the Arab monarchs in power.
While Washington is engaged in its naval build-up, the
mainstream media networks controlled by the Saudis and Arab clients of the
U.S. are focusing on the deployment of Russian naval vessels to Syria, which
can be seen as a counter-move to NATO.
The Jordanian Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications, Rakan Al-Majali, has even publicly admitted this and dismissed it as weapons smuggling.
Jordanian Government Spokesman Confirms...
Arms Smuggling to Syria

For years, Jordanian forces have successfully prevented weapons from reaching the Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank from Jordanian territory.
In reality, Amman is sending weapons
into Syria and working to destabilize Syria. Jordanian forces work as a
frontline to protect Israel and the Jordanian intelligence services are an
extension of the C.I.A. and Mossad.
The so-called Free Syrian Army and other NATO-GCC front organizations are also using Turkish and Jordanian territory to stage raids into Syria.
Lebanon is also being used to smuggle weapon
shipments into Syria. Many of these weapons were actually arms that the
Pentagon had secretly re-directed into Lebanon from Anglo-American occupied
Iraq during the
George W. Bush Jr. presidency.
In reality, hostile governments are letting
these companies stay, because they siphon money out of Syria. They want to
prevent any money from going in, while they want to also drain the local
economy as a catalyst to internal implosion in Syria.
Since the U.N. Security Council is no longer a
viable route against Syria, the GCC may also try to impose a no-fly zone
over Syria through the Arab League.
Ankara has been playing a dirty game. Initially, during the start of NATO’s war against Libya, Ankara pretended to be neutral while it was helping the Transitional Council in Benghazi. The Turkish government does not care about the Syrian population.
On the contrary, the demands that Turkish officials have made to the Syrians spell out that realpolitik is at play. In tune with the GCC, Turkey has demanded that Damascus re-orient its foreign policy and submit to Washington’s demands as a new satellite.
Through a NATO initiative, the Turks have also
been responsible for recruiting fighters against the Libyan and Syrian
Its military research and development body,
TUBITAK-SAGE, has also announced that Ankara will also start mass-production
of cruise-missiles in 2012 that will be fitted for its navy and forthcoming
deliveries of U.S. military jets that could be used in future regional wars.
Turkey and NATO have also agreed to upgrade Turkish bases for NATO troops.
In July 2011, despite the close Irano-Turkish economic ties, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard made it clear that Tehran would support the Syrians and choose Damascus over Ankara.
In August 2011, Ankara started deploying retired soldiers and its military reserve units to the Turkish-Syrian border.
It is in this context, that the Russian military
presence has also been beefing up in the port of Tartus.
Damascus is being targeted as a means of targeting Iran and, in broader terms, weakening Tehran, Moscow, and Beijing in the struggle for control over the Eurasian landmass.
The U.S. and its
remaining allies are about to reduce their forces in Iraq, but they do not
want to leave the region or allow Iran to create a bridge between itself and
the Eastern Mediterranean using Iraq.
U.S. military forces from Iraq will actually be redeployed to the GCC countries in the Persian Gulf. Kuwait will host new combat units that have been designated to re-enter Iraq should security collapse, such as in the case of a regional war, or to confront Iran and its allies in a future conflict.
The U.S. is now activating the so-called
“Coalition of the Moderate” that it created under George W. Bush Jr. and
directing it against Iran, Syria, and their regional allies.
The Anglo-Turkish agreement comes into play within the framework of the meetings that the British Chief of Defence Staff, General David Richards, and Liam Fox, the former scandal-ridden British defence minister, had with Israeli officials in Tel Aviv. After the visit of General Richards to Israel, Ehud Barak would visit Britain and later Canada for talks concerning Syria and its strategic ally Iran.
Within this timeframe the British and Canadian
governments would declare that they were prepared for war with both Syria
Days later, both Canada and Britain would also
cut their banking and financial ties with Iran. In reality, these steps have
largely been symbolic, because Tehran was deliberately curbing it ties with
Britain and Canada. For months the Iranians have also openly been evaluating
cutting their ties with Britain and several other E.U. members.
In the Israeli Knesset, the events in Syria were naturally tied to reducing Iranian power in the Middle East. Tel Aviv has been preparing itself for a major conflict for several years. This includes its long distance military flights to Greece that simulated an attack on Iran and its deployment of nuclear-armed submarines to the Persian Gulf.
It has also conducted the “Turning Point”
exercises, which seek to insure the continuation of the Israeli government
through the evacuation and relocation of the Israeli cabinet and officials,
including the Israeli finance ministry, to secret bunkers in the case of a
What the world is facing is a pathway towards possible military escalation that could go far beyond the boundaries of the Middle East and suck in Russia, China, and their allies.
The Revolutionary Guard have also made it clear that if conflict is ignited with Iran that Lebanon, Iraq, and the Palestinians would all be drawn in as Iranian allies.
