NEXT IN LINE


“In order to facilitate the action of liberative (sic) forces, ...a special effort should be made to eliminate certain key individuals. ...[to] be accomplished early in the course of the uprising and intervention, ...

Once a political decision has been reached to proceed with internal disturbances in Syria, CIA is prepared, and SIS (MI6) will attempt to mount minor sabotage and coup de main (sic) incidents within Syria, working through contacts with individuals. ...Incidents should not be concentrated in Damascus …

Further : a “necessary degree of fear .. frontier incidents and (staged) border clashes”, would “provide a pretext for intervention... the CIA and SIS [MI6] should use … capabilities in both psychological and action fields to augment tension.”

- Joint US-UK leaked Intelligence Document, London and Washington, 1957

Canadian activist and professor Michel Chossudovsky has a new article out that I highly recommend. In Syria: NATO's Next "Humanitarian" War? he writes, "The 'protests' did not emanate from internal political cleavages as described by the mainstream media. From the very outset, they were the result of a covert US-NATO intelligence operation geared towards triggering social chaos, with a view to eventually discrediting the Syrian government of Bashar Al Assad and destabilizing Syria as a Nation State.

"Since the middle of March 2011, Islamist armed groups --covertly supported by Western and Israeli intelligence-- have conducted terrorist attacks directed against government buildings including acts of arson. Amply documented, trained gunmen and snipers including mercenaries have targeted the police, armed forces as well as innocent civilians. There is ample evidence, as outlined in the Arab League Observer Mission report, that these armed groups of mercenaries are responsible for killing civilians.

"It is important to underscore the fact that these terrorist acts --including the indiscriminate killing of men and women and children-- are part of a US-NATO-Israeli initiative, which consists is supporting, training and financing 'an armed entity' operating inside Syria."

It's Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Libya all over again. They say every criminal has an MO (Modus operandi) and this criminal syndicate now running corporate globalization and NATO surely has one. It reminds me of reading the Vietnam war-era "Pentagon Papers" while I was in the Air Force. Those ugly pages (but thank god they were released to the public by a courageous Daniel Ellsberg) helped turn me into a peace activist. I learned that the CIA had done these very same kind of "destabilization" tactics that eventually lead to the balkanization of Vietnam and overt U.S. intervention.

Hopefully people are getting smarter these days and not falling for the hook. The corporate media drum is loud and pervasive but many are turning away from that sound machine and toward alternative media sources.
