The conflict in Syria is rapidly turning into a war just over the horizon. In the days I’ve been away (yes, again) due to computer issues, there have been many developments regarding the West’s pressure to remove al-Assad. President Obama has not ruled out a military strike (independent of any UN or NATO action), and has been issuing ultimatumsto the Syrian government.
The United States has threatened Syria with military action regardless of UN backing.
I think the Western forces underestimated the resistance they would meet when they planned this (mis)adventure.
The US tried to duplicate its “victory” in Libya
while assuming no variances. This has been a mistake so far as the Syrian troops have been able to push back all of the attacks by the rebels. Since the Libyan playbook didn’t work out, the war rhetoric is getting more aggressive.
….the Obama administration has conceded al-Qaeda’s involvement in the Syrian rebellion.
We also learned not very long ago that chemical weapons were found to be in the hands of these same rebels
. So what we have, in my opinon, is a perfect setup for a false flag operation in Syria to justify an invasion.
This would definitely draw in Iran and that is all it would take for a major
military confrontation that would ignite the entire middle east.
In addition to a conflict that will not only affect the infrastructure and economies of the countries in the middle east, but this could also turn into a conflict that spans the globe.
Russia and China have opposed military intervention in Syria throughout 17 months of bloodshed and have vetoed three U.N. Security Council resolutions backed by Western and Arab states that would have raised pressure on Damascus to end violence.
There has been an ongoing campaign to destabilize Russia
which seems to point to this entire debacle being pre-engineered. Coupled with the diplomacy issues we face in Russia, China has also been growing colder in their relation with the US, and aggressively supporting N. Korea.
It appears that we are at the brink of world war and TPTB don’t seem willing to change course. It really sucks being a pleb at times like these…
