Britain and US plan a Syrian revolution from an innocuous office block in Istanbul

 

[Editor’s note: We are not posting this article to spread western propaganda about how US-Britain are willing to help the Syrian opposition in their “legitimate fight” againt Bashar Al Assad. We perfectly know that what the West wants, is a splitted Syria. Hence, a weak Syria. Plus, as already reported, the SNC is not “legitimate” oppisition but a western backed opposition, with absolutely no legitimacy whatsoever.  We’re just posting this article to show, once more, that foreign meddling is blatant. In total violation of the UN Charter & International law. ]

An underground network of Syrian opposition activists is receiving training and supplies of vital equipment from a combined American and British effort to forge an effective alternative to the Damascus regime.

Dozens of dissidents have been ferried out of Syria to be vetted for foreign backing. Recipients of the aid are given satellite communications and computers so that they can act as a local “hub” linking local activists and the outside world.

The training takes place in an Istanbul district where handsome apartment blocks line the steep slopes and rooftop terraces boast views over the Golden Horn waterway. Continue reading

NATO Proxies Turkey and Saudi Arabia Move to War Footing on Eve of Syrian ‘Peace Summit

20120701-080920.jpg

By Finian Cunningham, GlobalResearch.ca

The NATO-backed covert aggression against Syria could be reaching a tipping point for all-out war involving state forces. That should be no surprise. For the past 16 months, NATO and its regional proxies have been steadily increasing the violence and turmoil inside and outside Syria, while the Western corporate-controlled media maintain the ridiculous fiction that the bloody chaos is largely due to the government forces of President Bashar Al Assad cracking down on “peaceful protesters”.

Ironically, the crisis is culminating at the same time that the United Nations convenes an emergency summit on Syria in Geneva this weekend. The meeting, which is ostensibly aimed at “reviving the Kofi Annan peace plan”, will be attended by the five permanent members of the UN security council and other “invited” regional states. The irony is that leading NATO members, the US, Britain and France, as well as their Turkish and Arab allies who will also be attending the crisis conference, are the very parties that have deliberately created the precipice for all-out war in the Middle East.

Britain, allies breed violence in Syria

Britain and its NATO allies have launched a propaganda campaign based on blatant lies by alleged human rights activists and a network of duplicity and deception to ignite a war on Syria.

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which has been the main source of these blatant lies, receives all its reports via phone and YouTube videos from inside Syria, none of which could be verified or authenticated independently or officially, it has been revealed.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is also working in close coordination with both US-funded NGOs and British Foreign Secretary William Hague.

As far as the UN Human Right Council’s report about the situation in Syria is concerned, it has recently been revealed that the report entitled Syrian “crimes against humanity” was actually co-authored by Karen Koning AbuZayd, a director of the US Washington-based corporate think-tank, ‘Middle East Policy Council’, that includes Exxon men, CIA agents, US military and government representatives, and even the president of the US-Qatar Business Council, which includes amongst its membership, Al-Jazeera, Chevron, Exxon, munitions manufacturer Raytheon, and Boeing.

The UN report itself contained no verifiable evidence, but rather hearsay accounts recorded in Geneva by alleged “victims” “witnesses,” and “defectors,” put forth by “all interested persons and organizations.” In other words, the UN report was an open invitation for Syria’s enemies to paint whatever image of the ruling government they pleased.

While critics claim this is due to the Syrian government’s lack of cooperation with the UN, it is more likely that the UN itself, with a proven track record of doing so in Iraq, the Ivory Coast, and most recently Libya, is merely complicit in providing “window dressing” for Wall Street and London’s otherwise naked military conquests.

Now, the so-called “evidence” from Syria has turned out to be a complete fraud, derived by opposition “witnesses” and compiled by a corporate D.C. think-tank director into a UN “human rights report.”

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights serves as the exclusive source of those “reports” coming out of Syria despite the fact that it is actually, entirely based in London.

While it is verified that the NGOs it works in tandem with are U.S-funded, the Observatory itself fails to publish where its money comes from or the backgrounds of those that constitute its membership.

Meanwhile, it has already been confirmed that NATO-backed Libyan militias are on their way to Syria to oversee the “Free Syria Army,” led by Abdul Belhaj.

Mounting evidence suggests that NATO and its proxies are behind the unrest and increasing violence in Syria, while London-based NGOs like the Observatory disingenuously spin responsibility back onto the Syrian government as part of a malicious hoax aimed at triggering the same genocide and destruction that delivered Libyan into the hands of global corporate-fascism.

After months of denying that the Syrian opposition was armed, the Wall Street-funded think-tank Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) now openly says that not only the “protesters” are armed, but there is a resistance army of 15,000.

It also has already been revealed that weapons are freely flowing over Syrian borders from foreign supporters including Turkey, the Israeli regime and even as far as Libya.

The CFR has, in its report, explored the options available to NATO for facilitating “regime change” in Syria including the use of “overhead surveillance assets, logistical enablers, peacekeepers, armed drones, combat aircraft, ground troops, and smuggled weapons.”

Britain spent £300 million to destroy Libya’s infrastructure & expects £200 billion in reconstruction

Britain that has spent almost £300 million to destroy Libya’s infrastructure is vying to win lucrative deals worth almost £200 billion to rebuild the North African state.

The UK Department of Trade and Investment believes the estimated value of the contracts to rebuild Libya, in areas ranging from electricity and water supplies to healthcare and education, could amount to almost more than £200 billion over the next 10 years, British media reported.

“Libya is a relatively wealthy country with oil reserves, and I expect there will be opportunities for British and, indeed, other companies to get involved in the reconstruction of Libya,” British Defence Secretary Philip Hammond has said.
He called on CEOs and sales directors to “pack their suitcases” and head to the war-shattered country.

The statement has raised more questions about the UK’s motives in playing such a big role in launching a destructive war on the sovereign state.

John Hilary, the executive director at the War on Want anti-poverty charity, says it has shades of post-war Iraq, when companies from countries involved in the US-led invasion were awarded all the best gigs.

“We bomb, we destroy, and then we get the contracts to rebuild afterwards,” he told the Russian state-run Satellite TV Russia Today (RT).
“For us [Britain], it’s always been about those commercial interests ever since British Petroleum (BP) and Shell went back into Libya after the sanctions were lifted 10 years or so ago. For us, it’s got this commercial edge to the entire thing,” added Hillary.

The UK Department for Trade and Investment already has staff on the ground in Libya, ready to welcome British companies awarded contracts.
