Blatant lies told by alleged "human rights activists" led to ignominious NATO-sanctioned brutality and ultimately brought BP, Shell, Total-sponsored Petroleum Institute representative, Abdurrahim el-Keib, into power in Libya.
Now, these same corporate-financier interests,
through their same networks of propaganda, duplicity and deception, are
laying the groundwork for a repeat performance in Syria.
...which includes amongst its membership,
The conflict of interest is so monumental it is
only outdone by the corporate media's eager acceptance of the report and
their complete negligence in airing the compromised backgrounds of those
responsible for compiling it.
In other words, it 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
After months of denying the opposition was armed, the Wall Street-funded think-tank Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) now openly claims that not only are the "protesters" armed, but there is a resistance army of "15,000."
The CFR claims this "Free Syrian Army" is requesting weapons and air support. It has already been revealed that weapons are freely flowing over Syria's borders from foreign-supporters, most notably, Turkey, Lebanon, Israel, and now even as far as Libya.
The CFR report then goes on to explore the
options available to NATO for facilitating "regime change" including the use
of "overhead surveillance assets, logistical enablers, peacekeepers, armed
drones, combat aircraft, ground troops," and "smuggled weapons."
With an army of "15,000 defectors" attempting to seize the nation by force with the help of foreign money, weapons, and diplomatic support, one finds it difficult to believe the Syrian government would instead be spending its time "massacring civilians."
Just as in Libya, or any number of nations where
foreign-backed "revolutions" have been attempted or achieved,
Western-enabled violence is always a predetermined part of the equation,
fully provisioned ahead of time with the subsequent violence cloaked behind
tales of one-sided brutality aimed at the targeted regime.
In addition to this confession by the Brookings Institution, this pattern of providing for, or covering up the existence of, armed elements deployed during the opening phases of a color revolution has also been documented in Libya, Syria, and in Bangkok, Thailand in 2010.
Just as in Libya where legions of Al Qaeda rebels armed by NATO and fresh back from killing US and British troops in Iraq and Afghanistan were initially covered up with tales of street protesting youth being cut down by Qaddafi's troops, Syria too has been plagued by violent militants since the unrest began earlier this year.
In April's "Globalist War Machine Fixates on Syria," the first reports of the now ubiquitous snipers terrorizing Syria began to surface.
Also noted was the similarity between these
sniper attacks and concurrent attacks being carried out in Yemen, and the
year before in Thailand - all victims of Western-backed destabilization.
In time, as the proper "international" legal
maneuvers are performed, this mercenary army will be provided NATO air and
naval support, NATO special forces, and potentially NATO ground troops -
this of course includes Turkey, a NATO member since 1952 and already deeply
meddling in Syria's sovereign affairs.
We, through our choices of how we spend our time, money, and attention, are fueling daily its destructive consumption of our world.
While protests, elections, and activism are important, what is absolutely essential is to entirely cut this machine off from its fuel. That is, for us to boycott the corporations, institutions, and personalities that constitute it to the point of starvation and submission.
We must work ceaselessly to
identify and expose who these corporations, institutions, and
personalities are through the alternative media, boycott them out of
business, and replace them entirely with local solutions derived from both
tradition and technological innovation.
Let this generation say, "not in our names" and
starve this beast into submission, just as
it has done to so many other sovereign nations.
