A Repeat of the Libya Fiasco?

by Vaska

Writing for New Eastern Outlook (September 8), Toni Cartalucci reports on a June 2015 Brookings Institute paper which lays out a US plan to invade and take over in Syria.

The signed and dated open-conspiracy to divide, destroy, invade, then incrementally occupy Syria using no-fly-zones and both US and British special forces is now demonstrably underway.

Should Cartalucci’s reading of the situation prove to be true — and it is backed up by some of the British MSM — it would mean that the US, Britain, Turkey and the other countries involved have gone rogue. The invasion of a UN member state by any other member state constitutes a war or aggression and is a capital crime in international law. Washington and London have recent form on this, i.e. their joint invasion (and destruction) of Iraq. After the chaos and the blood-bath they’re directly responsible for in Iraq and Afghanistan, a repeat of the Libya scenario in Syria would not only bring more death and chaos to the millions of people in the region but would also signal to the rest of the international community that the West is continuing its sociopathic rampage and is not likely to cease and desist unless it’s forcibly made to do so.

Image: Northern Syria. The flow of supplies to ISIS from the Turkish border can clearly be seen on any map published by the Western media, including this one by the Wall Street Journal. Green indicates Syrian-Iranian backed Kurds forming what is essentially a nation-scale encirclement of ISIS’ supply lines. The last remaining corridor is being protected in a slowly forming “safe haven” by NATO – revealing the true source of ISIS’ power and NATO’s true goal in Syria.

Not only does Brookings lay out an open conspiracy to invade and occupy Syria, it does so with the open admission that the goal is not to degrade the fighting capacity of the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS or ISIL), but rather to undermine and eventually overthrow the Syrian government. In fact, Brookings makes a point of stating that the goal would be to seize and hold Syrian territory to further advance American ambitions toward regime change, and would move quickly to degrade the Syrian government’s ability to resist ISIS if any attempts were made by Damascus to stop the US invasion.

News reports have trickled out regarding US and British “fighters” operating in Syria. Their backgrounds, affiliations, logistical support, and transportation to the battlefield have been intentionally left ambiguous by the Western media. Occasionally, open admissions are made that US and British special forces are operating in Syria, with one recent report indicating British Special Air Service (SAS) operators were in Syria “dressed as ISIS fighters.”

  1. This is the best bit…

    “…Moreover, even this kind of deal would require the defeat or near-defeat of both the Islamic State and Assad, given how divisive and illegitimate EACH HAS BECOME…”

    This lunatic sees no diff between an elected president and a bunch of terrorists who run round burning and beheading people, while getting money and supplies from the west. Brookings are crazy and they are the principle architects of US foreign policy
