Bombing Syria to Democracy new form of Occupation

Updated on August 23, 2012

Bombing Syria

I love the freedom and so called democracy that we enjoy in the West, there is nothing better than this in the globe. But does that mean we the West should be bombing other people into accepting our form political, social governance and way of life over theirs?

In this hub I would like through into the mix another argument that the West which originally conquered free countries and enslaved or massacred in some cases the inhabitants of those occupied lands for centuries has come to the realisation that the historical colonialist ideologies accepting its demise with the death of the British Empire.

With the final blows to the British Empire the idea of occupation and enslavement of foreign countries and peoples was then rejuvenated with the American dream and imperialist agenda which flourished in the new found and occupied land we are now seeing the last stages of this idealistic occupation agenda playing out its last cards before it too will reach a final resting place in the books of history.

You might not be getting the truth in your news this!

The West and its preoccupation

Generally the West over the last few centuries has been very occupied with bringing its own form of economics, social, political and thinking to the rest of the known World especially to the Middle East (after all – it is not our fault that ‘God as decided to bury our Oil under their lands’, I am sure you have heard this quote somewhere before).

Back to the point in question – Syria, is there a big plan, sure there is. Unfortunately you and I do not have the security clearance required to see these plans for occupation. But there has to be a bigger agenda to the wave of changes that started with 911 and now on the brink of killing millions in Syria using NATO bombs.

The West and it's BIG Agenda!

Who put the ASSAD regime into power?

The 'Alawis' starting point for the now known Assad regime, its ascent took place over the course of half a century. In 1920 they were still the lowly minority living in that region; by 1970, they firmly ruled Syria with the help from the French (We the Westerners love meddling in other people’s countries). This stunning transformation of the Alawis into power took place in three stages: the French mandate between (1920-46), the period of Sunni dominance during (1946-63), and the era of 'Alawi consolidation (1963-70).

The Alawis who had their own agenda just like the rebels in the Syrian fight now, adopted a pro-French attitude even before the French conquest of Damascus in July 1920. So intensely did they oppose Prince Faysal, the Sunni Arab ruler of Syria in 1918-20 whom they suspected of wanting to dominate them, they launched a rebellion against his rule in 1919, using French arms. Nothing new here then, as the rebels now are being supported by the same people (France, England, USA etc.) to fight the very regime they helped build and supported through out until they decided to change the game plan. Much like that in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and many others.

The establishment of French rule after World War 1 benefited the Alawis more than any other community in Syria. French efforts to cooperate with the minorities meant the Alawis gained political autonomy and escaped Sunni control thanks to the good old French. As an anti-'Alawi historian later put it, "At the time when resistance movements were mounted against the French mandate, when Damascus, Aleppo, and the Hawran witnessed continuous rebellions on behalf of Syrian unity and independence, the Nusayris (as they are called by the Sunnis and Shias) were blessing the division of the country into tiny state lets, much like what is going on in Syria right now with the blessing of the West.

Did you get the message?

Why Syria is on the regime hit-list?

Let’s bring this rather long hub to an end with this, the Syrian issue is not the end in itself but the beginning of the Western desire to rid itself of any free thinking power bases in the Middle East, countries like Lebanon (Hezbollah) or Iran pose a direct threat to Western hegemony in that region. It is because of this that they have Syria and are working damn hard to destabilise the country to point where nothing else can be done other than bomb the hell out of the Syrian people.

Then the target will move to Lebanon and Hezbollah, finishing off with the prize of decimating Iran.

Let me finish with these quotes:

It is always easier to fight for one’s principles than to live up to them.

~ Alfred Adler

What America has essentially done is transform Iraq from a very brutal, but highly functioning secular state into a very brutal, totally dysfunctional theocracy.

~ Jenan al-Ubaedy

History is replete with examples of empires mounting impressive military campaigns on the cusp of their impending economic collapse.

~ Eric Alterman

If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.

~ Noam Chomsky

      Turkey bombing Syria is one of those geo-political agendas which edges the world closer to regime change in Syria.

      Just what the West and it's puppet allies in the middle east want. It allows the West to install another idiot who will support Western position no matter what at the expense of true freedom and democracy for its own citizens.

      This game is not new it has been going on for generations, people in the middle east have no real governments other than those allowed to sit in power supported by US, UK and EU. Otherwise they are not recognised as legitimate Governments and will not be allowed to govern.

      hi ronaldoh,

      Thank you for reading and the nice comment. I just hope someday many more people in the world and especially in the US wake up to the problems that are being created in their names in other poor countries.

      Every manjor offensive in the last 20 years has been against or in countries with high levels of oil, and yes there is a plan

      In 2002 George W Bush warned us of the “axis of evil”. Citing Iraq, Iran and N.Korea, followed by Syria ,Libyia and Cuba.

      Iraq and Libya have been invaded by US-led forces, destroyed and re-organised to serve Western interests. Sanctions stifle N.Korea and Cuba, Syria and Iran are next on the list

      Do Syria really deserve this massacre? Iran is the next target and yet more bloodshed. What next for the rest of the world ?They can look forward to poverty and more conflict.
