With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

CIA's first regime change in Syria - 1949

US-led attempts to overthrow governments in Syria has a long, sordid history. In fact, Syria was the first country in the post-war period to be targeted by US planners for regime change.

Miles Copeland, then CIA agent (and father of The Police's drummer Stuart), documented these efforts in his 1968 autobiography, The Game of Nations.

The reason for the 1949 coup is not much different from the current Washington-London-Paris attempt for regime change in Syria.

Bashar Al-Assad, President of Syria, supported the “wrong” pipeline (from the US-Saudi-Israeli perspective). Julian Assange of Wikileaks [has] declared that he had seen secret cables and reports by the US, Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies which showed evidence they were moving to overthrow Assad as soon as he indicated he would not support the Qatar-Turkey pipeline thru Syria. The CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria in 2009, two years before the Syria War officially began.

Saudi Arabia has been so aggressive in pushing forward its agenda that it even offered to fund the US for its entire bill in carrying out the Syria War!
See the full story at this article entitled Why the Arabs don’t want us in Syria: They don’t hate ‘our freedoms.’ They hate that we’ve betrayed our ideals in their own countries — for oil by

Talk about blowback. Syria has been dealing with the treachery of the US and its CIA for 69 years!

Sadly most people know nothing about any of this history.
