It’s one thing when imperial bureaucrats in Washington call for ‘regime change’, but it’s quite another thing when the rallying cry is coming from US-installed puppet regime.
In this case, we’re talking about the now fully domesticated US-puppet government of Nuri Kamal al-Maliki in Iraq, who is now calling for a regime change in its neighboring embattled country Syria. You would think that of all people, the Iraqis would not want to wish a US-sponsored sectarian free-for-all on their worst enemy, or neighbor. But think again.
In terms of Washington’s ambitions for a full spectrum domination of the Middle East grand chessboard, Syria occupies the prime location, sharing borders with Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, and of course, the most important fence in the yard – Israel. But out of all these surrounding territories, the border it shares with the US-occupied Iraq is the only border that offers Washington direct access to Syria.
As for maintaining the illusion of international diplomacy and utilizing the UN, Washington will certainly need to exploit any political cover it can gain from its compliant, well-trained and well paid puppets in Baghdad.
Syria is being set up to fail, and there are many reasons for this.
Syria constitutes one of the last (if not the last) independent secular states in the entire Arab world. Politically, it’s dominated by the Ba’ath Party and the Ba’athist organizational structure, and it remains fiercely independent, anti-Imperialist and populist. But most of all, it is on Washington’s chopping block because it is closely allied with Iran, and it naturally supports the 70 year struggle of the Palestinian people against Israeli occupation.
So it is not surprising at all that presently, Syria is preparing to resist the impending globalist takeover of their country at the hands of the US-NATO and Israeli coalition.
For years, Syria has made serious efforts to cooperate with Washington regarding the Iraqi border, particularly in terms of halting the operations of terrorists, their arms and finance, and on intelligence sharing. But recently Syria has run into a diplomatic stone wall with Washington and London, and it is now an open secret that Washington and the global elite establishment would like to see Syria fall, as the next domino to make way for their complete restructuring of the Middle Eastern region.
Only last month, the elite globalist think tank, The Council on Foreign Relation (CFR) announced its desire for “regime change in Syria”, a call which will in turn, be loyally heeded by Washington’s imperial bureaucratic elite, presently led by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. A clearer indication you will not get as to plans that have already been drawn up to both bring down, and later restructure that country.
The formula which has worked so well already in Libya, will most likely also be deployed against Syria, whereby the US-NATO alliance and its agencies will trigger internal social chaos, and any reaction by the Syrian government against this will be used to discredit the Syrian government of Bashar Al Assad and make way for a laundry list of UN-related “interventions”.
This process is already underway, as Michel Chossudovsky has reported:
“Since the middle of March 2011, Islamist armed groups covertly supported by Western and Israeli intelligence have conducted terrorist attacks on government buildings and acts of arson.
Amply documented, trained gunmen and snipers have targeted the police, the armed forces as well as unarmed civilians.
The objective of this armed insurrection is to trigger the response of the police and armed forces, including the deployment of tanks and armored vehicles with a view to eventually justifying a “humanitarian” military intervention, under NATO’s “responsibility to protect” mandate.”
So it’s no surprise to hear the war drum now beating out of Baghdad, whose country will most certainly become a major staging ground when US-NATO military hostilities eventually begin against Syria.
A recent New York Times report has confirmed this, with Maliki’s adviser, Ali al-Moussawi stating yesterday, “We believe that the Syrian people should have more freedom and have the right to experience democracy”. Al-Moussawi added, “We are against the one-party rule and the dictatorship that hasn’t allowed for the freedom of expression.”
A moral crusade no less. So now the puppet regime in Iraq is in lock-step with the CFR and Washington.
On the other side of the coin is Iran. Recently Iran had asked Syria’s leader Assad to support Mr. Maliki for another term as prime minister, and so relations between Iraq and Syria have been healthy. But that looks to be a thing of the past as the US-NATO timetable for the region is requiring thing to move along.
The New York Times report also mentioned a key point which should give clarity to any doubters of the US-NATO actual intentions in Syria, stating:
“Mr. Moussawi said Tuesday that the Iraqi government was concerned that if Mr. Assad’s government collapses, violence will spill over the border and further destabilize Iraq, which is still dealing with violent attacks nearly every day.”
The key word there is “destabilization”, and that is exactly what the master planners have in mind in the coming months and years. The process begins with the decapitation of Syria, followed by destabilization.
Only through a policy of destabilization and sectarian strife can the US and its allies maintain any form of long-term military presence and full-spectrum domination over the entire region, also enabling it to continue to launder hundreds of billions of US greenbacks overseas, an effort which is helping to prop up the value of America’s flagging currency.
If you have any doubts to the power and effectiveness of this policy, just ask the puppet government in Baghdad.
