Obama’s Agenda: Direct Military Intervention and the Relentless Destruction of Syria as a Nation State

The recent announcement that the United States would increase its “non lethal” military aid to Syria’s rebels shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.  Some speculated that Obama — having been repeatedly proved wrong about the Syria government’s stability — would leave Syria in silent humiliation.

Not so. The destruction of Syrian society will continue, indeed, increase.  Although there are plenty of non-military options the Obama administration could pursue, he’s instead choosing the bloodiest course possible. Millions of Syrians have had their lives destroyed, and now millions more can look forward to a similar fate.

U.S. media outlets have reported that all of the hundreds of millions of dollars of U.S. aid to Syria’s rebels has been “non-lethal,” but the New York Times admitted recently:

“American [government] officials declined to discuss an ongoing covert program to train rebel fighters or the extent to which it has made a difference on the battlefield.”

It’s no exaggeration to say that Obama is helping to orchestrate the largest state-sponsored terror campaign since the still-simmering genocides of the Congo and Yugoslav wars. This fact has been completely hidden from the view of the U.S. public, but it’s a fact nonetheless.

For example, the only effective fighting force of the Syrian rebels, the Al Nusra Front, has been labeled a terrorist organization, even by the United States. Its frequent terrorist bombings have helped shred the fabric of Syrian society; its most recent massive car bombings killed 100 mostly-innocent people in central Damascus, including dozens of children and wounding hundreds more.

Brahimi enters Syria as UN-AL peace envoy

UN and Arab League peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi has arrived in Syria on his first visit to the crisis-hit country since his appointment in mid-August.

On his three day visit, Brahimi is scheduled to hold talks with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as well as other government officials and representatives of the Syrian opposition.

The UN Envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, said no one disagrees with the need to stop the bloodshed and restore harmony among the people in Syria.

In a statement upon arrival in Damascus International Airport on Thursday, Brahimi added “We came to Syria for consultation with the brotherly Syrians… There is a crisis and I think it is deteriorating.” Continue reading

Nilesat, Arabsat stop broadcasting Syria state TV channels

 

Satellite companies Nilesat and Arabsat have stopped broadcasting Syrian television stations.

Satellite companies Nilesat and Arabsat have stopped broadcasting Syrian television stations in a clear act of hostility against the Damascus government.

The operators took Syria’s state television channel as well as pro-government channels al-Ekhbaryah and al-Dunya off air on Wednesday shortly after a meeting of Arab League ministers in Cairo.

In June, the Arab League asked satellite operators Nilesat and Arabsat to shut down Syrian TV signals.

The operators, however, continue broadcasting Syria’s anti-Damascus television channels.

The Syrian government has slammed the move as an attempt to silence the Syrians, stressing that it is in violation of media ethics. Continue reading

Arab League As An Anti-Arab Weapon

By Elena Pustovoitova

Elementary arithmetic routinely holds keys to much more complex political algebra. At the moment, for example, it appears that fairly simple regards explain the bizarre conduct of the Arab League which, contrary to reasonable expectations, aligned itself with the West in destabilizing Syria and keeping Bashar Assad under pressure.

It became clear immediately when protests erupted in Syria in March, 2011 that Washington would welcome serious arguments in favor of Assad’s ouster. The unrest in the country came as a predictable – and by no means the last – phase in the sequence of revolts inspired by the US and other countries in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Bahrain with the aim of tailoring the maps of North Africa and the Middle East to the liking of global heavyweights. Later on, the slogan of regime change in the name of “democracy” similarly popped up in Algeria, Jordan, Morocco, and Oman.

It did not evade watchers that mass protests in Syria began in the southern city of Daraa and mostly took place on Fridays, at the Muslims’ post-prayer time. Due to the clearcut tendency, Syria’s brewing revolt was even dubbed “the Friday Revolution”. The unrest quickly spilled from Daraa to other Syrian cities, with the protesters’ agenda – the abolition of the state of emergency law and the uprooting of the decades-old regime – borrowed with minimal adjustments from the Tahrir Square. Unlike Mubarak in Egypt, Syria’s Assad lifted the state of emergency right away, but the protesters evidently had much more far-reaching goals in mind. Continue reading

Syria rejects new Arab League resolutions

Damascus has rejected the Arab League’s call to bring international peacekeepers into Syria, labeling it a hostile act aimed at undermining security and stability in the country.

An emergency session of foreign ministers of the 22-member Arab League in Cairo has issued a resolution appealing to the UN to bring peacekeeping force into Syria. The international contingent, they insist, should be consisted of UN blue helmets and troops from Arab countries, “to oversee the implementation of a ceasefire.”

The plan comes as the UN General Assembly prepares to debate Syria.

The Arab League Secretary General Nabil El-Arabi proposed to form a new monitoring group for Syria, consisted of international observers of both the UN and the Arab League specialists. He also proposed former foreign minister of Jordan Abdelilah Al-Khatib to be a UN special envoy for Syria, a diplomat that previously worked as a UN special envoy for Libya.

Syria’s ambassador to Cairo Yusef Ahmed, who did not attend the meeting, said “The Syrian Arab Republic categorically rejects the decisions of the Arab League,” reports Xinhua. Continue reading

Ryabkov: Some Members of Syrian Opposition are Armed, We Know How They’re Supplied and Supported from Abroad

By H. Sabbagh from MOSCOW, (Source: SANA) – Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that Russia consider Syria’s signing of the Arab League observer mission protocol to be a very positive message, and that Russia believes in the need to continue moving towards dialogue and reconciliation.

In an interview with Russia Today TV, Ryabkov dismissed the idea that the Syrian opposition consists entirely of peaceful unarmed people, stressing that the opposite is true and that he has documented knowledge of how the opposition is being supplied and supported from abroad.

He also pointed out that achieving a settlement in Syria is still possible as the matter hasn’t reached the point of no return.

Syrians Condemn Arab League’s Western Backed Decision

Arab League’s decision to suspend Syria’s membership drove tens of thousands of Syrians to gather in the squares of Damascus, Aleppo, Raqqa, Lattakia, Tartous, Hasaka and Sweida to condemn this unfair decision amid doubts that the AL stance wasn’t aimed at reaching settlement to Syrian crisis rather than working under external agenda.

Despite the severe cold, protesters went out spontaneously to streets to stress their support to the independent national decision and the comprehensive reform program under the leadership of their President Bashar al-Assad.

The Arab League issued a decision Saturday to suspend Syrian delegations’ activities in the Arab League meetings and implement economic and political sanctions against the Syrian government. Lebanon and Yemen rejected the decision, while Iraq abstained.

Assistant US Secretary of State Jeffry Feltman attended the AL meeting raising doubts that the presence of Feltman indicated that the US and its allies are the godfathers of this decision.

In Damascus, thousands gathered in front of the Qatari embassy and in the Governorate Square, holding banners which denounce the decision as a flagrant interference in the Syrian internal affairs, according toSANA news agency.

“The people want Bashar al-Assad,” yelled demonstrators gathered at Sebaa Bahrat Square, also chanting patriotic slogans.

In Lattakia, thousands gathered in al-Zera’a and al-Amara Roundabouts to express anger over the AL decisions which were biased to the US-western schemes.

The participants stressed that what happened in the AL today is part of the plot aiming at undermining the pioneer location and role of Syria.

A similar protest was held against the Saudi-based Al-Arabiya and the Doha-based Al-Jazeera news channels in the Jordanian capital, Amman,  which they blamed for following a US and Israeli agenda against Syria.
