SYRIA: The Repeat of an AMERICAN TRAGEDY! Viet Nam Redux. American CIA purposeful, malicious, arrogant, unnecessary intervention creates another in a series of military disasters- Vietnam; Chile; Salvador; Nicaragua; Iraq; Libya; Egypt; Pakistan; and now SYRIA!!
What’s next for the Consistent Idiots of America? A Middle East Armageddon?
Another COVERT war initiated by the CIA has been waging for several years without the AMERICAN PUBLIC having any say in whether they want another UNNECESSARY WAR supposedly fought in the name of fleeing refugees and humanitarian aid.
The truth is that this war in Syria is being fought by the USG and its military/industrial cohorts for geo-political reasons, in reality its Sunni vs. Shiites. We are irresponsibly on the side of UAE, Saudis, Jordan, Israel and working against Iran, Russia, China. We have no reason to be in this fight in Syria, our national security is NOT at stake. Please do not fall for this B.S. by the puppet media and the CIA marionette POTUS Obama.
So-called leadership in the USG has zero practical knowledge of Syria and it’s multi-ethnic composition, or any previous experience dealing with General Hafez Assad, the former Leader of Syria nor his son, Dr Bashar Assad, M.D. Despite or because of their ignorance, the USG has decided to spend countless billions of American dollars arming the resistance(?) in Syria. Of course, this wasted money is badly needed at home for improving the economy and building an infrastructure worthy of the information age. Not to mention, the 25 million unemployed and marginally employed citizens who need a job so they can support themselves in the American dream.
For over three years, I have warned this administration to AVOID at all possible costs a DIRECT MILITARY INTERVENTION into Syria.
I warned against supplying the so-called, “FREE SYRIAN ARMY” It’s certainly not free- - It consists of a bunch of Salafists and Sunni paid thugs and foreign (Turkish) mercenaries funded by Saudis, UAE, Dubai, France, England and others. It’s certainly not “SYRIAN”. If there are any so-called Syrians they are the Sunnis from Homs and Hama. These ‘thugs’ were and are “Salafist Radicals”, sponsored directly by Saudi Arabian misfit princes who had been previously ‘managed’, perhaps somewhat brutally by Hafez Assad, some thirty years ago-- in an ALAWITE controlled country.
For certain, there is no “ARMY” as we commonly know it as a formalized C3I structure with a formal COMMANDER IN CHIEF or a legitimate president representative of thismotley mercenary group of fighters.
Without having learned anything from disastrous previous experiences in the Egyptian, Libyan and Pakistani interventions, the White House/Intel have just designated an ad hoc supernumerary as President of the Free Syria [a non-existent wishful thinking entity], a hapless American citizen by the name of GHASSAN HITTO. He is a 50 year old, former information technology executive, who emigrated from Syria to America years ago. His full extent of political , military and intelligence work in that region consists of being a ‘volunteer’ in the area.
This appointment is NO BETTER than the CIA-CREATED Hamid Karzai, an ex-Maryland Delicatessen Owner with severe bipolar mental illness and that old disease called corruptitis insatiable need to ‘rip off his country and the USG’.
Or how about Egypt? where the CIA, and our military/WH gang of incompetents demonstrated their complete lack of any psychological or political understanding of the MIDDLE EAST and the personalities involved by appointing the DISASTROUS ex-American Professor [also a CIA asset in ‘hiding’ at the local DENNY’S DINER across from Taft HS] from NORTHRIDGE CALIFORNIA. NONE OTHER than our vociferous, ANTI-SEMITIC , ISLAMIC BROTHERHOOD “canon fodder”, our very own INCOMPETENT--- MOHAMMED MORSI.
This pattern of ineptness of our MILITARY and CIA continues because of a lack of internal psychological political talent and/or experience. So we keep on appointing American surrogates in the Middle East without merit, talent or any experience in politics, military or intelligence. The Tragedy of American History repeats itself, once again, in the selection of this well-intentioned neophyte.
Whom am I to be so critical of POTUS and his WH advisors like Valerie Jarrett, Rhodes, Samantha Power, Donilon, Biden, Clinton and now, Kerry (to name just a few)?
For the record, I have thirty years of experience fighting Hafez Assad while he was trying to blow up parts and parcels of Lebanon and other places in the Middle East. But I also remember when he agreed with Israel and the USG to temper the PLO, PFLP, Hamas, and more importantly Hezbollah in return he received not territory but rather the Lebanese banking system.
Hafez Assad was a warrior in the true sense of the word. He fought a war against the IDF while he was hospitalized in the ICU unit with a heart attack. In the process of the last war with Israel, he lost 76 Syrian jets while the Saudis barely lost a pound of flesh. You see this whole thing goes back to the Saudis and the UAE and boy, are their decadent days numbered!
Maybe we are seeing a Pentagon-Papers-type-leak about an illegal war….we all know what happened to Nixon!
Why is this totally illegal arms shipment to Syrian Rebels so dangerous? So many reasons, let me spell out a few….
1. This illegal transport of military weapons is shipping through Croatia then on to Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and finally into Syria -maximizing the potential for expanded regional conflict or war.
2. No one really knows who is receiving these weapons, are they good guys? bad guys? who knows? certainly not the CIA!
3. Such illegal weapons shipments puts pressure on Turkey and its Kurdish problem compounded by Erdogan's inept handling of his domestic affairs and his obsession with Syria.
4. Jordan will be a major problem as the MI6 appointed King Abdullah tries to hold on to his Disneyland throne as the Islamic brotherhood tries to snatch it away.
5. Lebanon will fall into one of its serial civil wars- the last one saw U.S. military casualties, station chief dead and thousands of innocent civilians killed.
6. The CIA and USG has no control over the end game, we are entering a conflict with Russia, China, Hezzbollah and Iran on the other side…they have a lot more experience in this part of the world than we do. Like Iraq, Egypt etc, we have no plan for the next government in Syria.
