Terrible background information comes from reliable sources in Amman and Ankara/Istanbul.
40-43’000 mercenaries are ready in Jordan to attack Syria. (1) Turkey has openly set up a mercenary recruitment office in Amman’s Mekkah Street. Since last early summer they are active in finding personnel to do dirty jobs in neighbouring Syria. This would certainly not have been possible under King Abdallah’s father Hussein.
But the youthful son, lacking the father’s truly exceptional political skills, obviously and simply falls victim to the bankruptcy-driven impetus of US-led NATO and their corruption-led Arab allies.
Where ist the much-beleaguered Ummah, where the oft-belittled Arab solidarity?
Once more the awe-stricken spectator is drawn to watch muslims kill muslims on Washingtons behalf. Unless this lesson is not only learned but heeded by anybody directing her or his prayers to Mekkah, there is no happy future for the Middle East.
Tomorrow’s referendum day will be used for heavy strikes.The constitution reform project, ending the Baath single-party rule, is a historical project born prematurely and under heavy strain. Very often these children die, especially if the right treatment and care is not available to both mother and child. The US-led NATO plus aggressive Arab partners, all with certain credibility gaps in questions of democracy and legal appearances, will use the ensuing bloodshed to put the full blame on the Assad government. The latter is caught in the ancient quagmire to either let go and step down in favour of Washington’s ill-advised, misguided and unstable patchwork “opposition” or sacrifice their own people. The honest reform-oriented opposition finds itself in the worst place, caught in the middle.
The obstacles against the honest Syrian leader, Bashaar al-Assad, who did not only not strive to get this most difficult an unrewarding job, but actively pursued a very different medical career in his youth, are high: Syria has not enjoyed much media freedom, power participation of the masses was traditionally low. How is he to counter inner and outer enemies, helped by foreign interference plus hostile irregular forces pushing in, doubled up by sanctions, secret payments to traitors, covert killings, terrorism of all kinds. Father Hafeez ruled by listening closely, applying shrewd common sense and balancing the necessary evils. Another genius at work – but under somewhat easier circumstances, it seems.
Nowadays all experience is relative: The twin super power competition granting stability is long gone. Master plans for sure-fired ways to steer through multi-challenges, like muddy and churned-up waters in bad weather between a rock and a hard place – these are rare.
Tomorrow’s “referendum battle” will be used to push for “humanitarian corridors”, which in turn will be misused as influx roads of the mercenaries – and to literally cut Syria to pieces. Already the “Red Crescent” commandos have reached the battleground of Homs. The author remembers well, how he toured Soviet-occupied Afghanistan in Saudi-paid spy-team driven ambulances, rattling with weapons and ammunition for the Mujahideen – more than twenty years ago.
That makes it clear: NATO is not considering any challenge to Russian and Iranian naval forces in Tartus. US-led NATO and Arab allies bank on irregular forces for their regime change effort. Plus heavy employment of special commandos and spies.
