Syria has never been about fighting ISIS, chemical weapons or saving the Syrian people

Oh, m’gawd … what a mess!! 

These wise words were written by a dear well educated, American friend who considers himself a Middle East nerd.

He has given me permission to share them here.

Take a look.

This was all new to me and, of course, no one hears this on the news.

If anyone wants to know, one has to do research and educate oneself!

This is why America and its coalition are trying to remove Assad and get a “West Friendly” government in Syria
The war against Assad did not start in 2011 with the Arab Spring but at least as early as 2000 when Qatar proposed to construct a $10 billion, 1,500 kilometer pipeline through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey, connecting Qatar directly to the European energy market and reducing the EU’s energy dependence on Russia.

This made it a threat to Russia which sells 70% of its gas exports to Europe.

Assad, remaining loyal to his Russian ally, refused to sign the agreement to allow the pipeline to run through Syria and, instead, approved the “Islamic pipeline” running from Iran’s gas field through Syria to the ports of Lebanon, potentially making Iran the main supplier to the European energy market. Naturally, this did not go down well with the Gulf’s Sunni monarchs allied with the West, Israel, nor the West itself, particularly as it seeks to weaken Russia to the point of the Yeltsin era – back to subservience.

Robert F Kennedy Jr., in February, 2016 wrote,

“Secret cables and reports by the US, Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas link.”

In 2009, according to WikiLeaks, soon after Bashar Assad rejected the Qatar pipeline, the CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria.

In 2011, the US joined France, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and England to form the ‘Friends of Syria Coalition,’ which formally demanded the removal of Assad.

The CIA provided $6 million to Barada, a British TV channel, to produce pieces entreating Assad’s ouster. Saudi intelligence documents, published by WikiLeaks, show that by 2012, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia were arming, training and funding radical Jihadist Sunni fighters from Syria, Iraq and elsewhere to overthrow the Assad’s Shia allied regime.

Qatar, which had the most to gain, invested $3 billion in building the insurgency and invited the Pentagon to train insurgents at US bases in Qatar.

U.S. personnel also provided logistical support and intelligence to the rebels on the ground.

The Times of London reported on September 14, 2012, that the CIA also armed Jihadists with anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles and other weapons from Libyan armouries that the agency smuggled by ratlines to Syria via Turkey.

According to an April 2014 article by Seymour Hersh, the CIA weapons ratlines were financed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Following Washington’s decision to remove Assad, its Middle Eastern allies, including Turkey, has been assisting anyone and everyone (including ISIS and al-Qaeda) opposing the Syrian government.

Assad has repeatedly said that Turkey was not fighting extremism but actually fomenting it.

In December 2015, German newspaper Deutsche Welle reported that “Military and logistic support from Turkey was the key factor in extremists’ takeover of Idlib”, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said.

… and there is more, so much more …

BBC News

~~Published on Mar 9, 2018~~

The war in Syria has now lasted for seven years. Although its roots lie in peaceful protests against the government, it has become something much more complex.

Joe Inwood explains who is fighting whom and why.

Britain and France joined the United States in the strikes in a coordinated operation that was intended to show Western resolve in the face of what the leaders of the three nations called persistent violations of international law.

Mr. Drumpf characterized it as the beginning of a sustained effort to force Mr. Assad to stop using banned weapons, but only ordered a limited, one-night operation that hit three targets.ControlImagesMeWeOneItIsYell

ONE VERY HOT MESS

After four years of Syria’s war, no end in sight

Syria’s rebellion has been derailed by ISIL and waning Western support, but rebels say they haven’t lost fight

Four years ago, tens of thousands of Syrians who took to the streets during the first days of rage against 40 years of authoritarian rule by the Assad family. The protests, demanding democratic reform, were peaceful, but the regime cracked down violently. Many anti-regime activists responded by taking up arms, and full-scale war soon erupted.

After the deaths of more than 220,000 people, the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad remains unmoved, and the struggle for control of Syria has devolved into a multifaceted war with no clear endgame in sight.

Regime forces have only accelerated their use of internationally prohibited barrel bombs and other brutal weaponry against rebel fighters and civilians alike, according to human rights groups. And so far, Assad’s key allies have been steadfast. Russia’s support on the U.N. Security Council has been crucial, recently blocking a referral of Assad to the International Criminal Court for war crimes, and Iran has been a steady source of funds and fighters, sending Iranian militias — along with Lebanese Shia Hezbollah fighters — against the Syrian rebels, who are mostly Sunni.

The international community has all but abandoned the idea of peace talks after several summits in Geneva — involving rebel factions, the regime and both sides’ foreign benefactors — ended in failure last year. The leading Western-backed opposition faction, the Syrian National Coalition, insisted on Assad’s departure as a condition for any talks; Assad, of course, dismissed that notion out of hand.

Absent a surge in Western support for the rebels, however, many analysts feel Syria is heading toward a situation in which Assad retains control of most of the important population centers, from Damascus in the south to Lattakia along the Mediterranean coast, while various armed groups, including ISIL, fight over the rest. In effect, Assad could turn into Syria’s “strongest warlord,” Lund said.

“I think the idea is that Syria will not be a united country for a very long time to come, if ever.”

That outcome is not what the 2011 revolutionaries had in mind. Ahmad, the former Revolutionary Command spokeswoman, said her side is trying to convince the world that the uprising against Assad is everyone’s war. ISIL, she noted, has ambitions of expanding beyond its current territory in Syria and Iraq.

“Syrians feel the world has abandoned them,” she said. “But maybe when you have nothing left to lose, you become more determined to fight to the end.”

Meanwhile, millions of refugees are burdening Syria’s neighbors, who fear their guests will become a permanent and destabilizing presence unless the war ends.
