SYRIA, THE DISINFORMATION
Or the silence from the media, as usual!
The 4th of October 2012 Turkey backed up by the US, the Saudi monarchy (with a $10 billion donation), Qatar, France (that is dreaming of its former colony), England... under the cover of the NATO "responsibility to protect" banner initiated the war on its border with Syria. Another "false flag" operation allowed Erdogan to launch the hostilities. After the envoy of salafist combatants trained by the US, England, endoctrinated in the bastion of radical Islam (Saudi Arabia) to slaughter the Syrian people, we must ponder on the reality of those crimes! What does Syria have that suddenly prompted the Atlantists to pierce and invade the Syrian territory? Let's deconstruct by the absurd the catalyst of those so-called freedom fighters!
Its secularism? Can it be that our democracies are eager to save the Syrian people against its secularism? And what is its alternative, may I ask? Simple curiosity! Radical Islam? Did they mean to copycat the failure in Afghanistan with its infamous Talibans terrrorizing the poorest stratus of the country? Or the well-structured dictatorship embodied by Saudi Arabia where money buys happiness? Is it this model of society that our dear US is striving to encroach on the Syrian people? With Egypt being the last country given way as a gift to the Muslim Brotherhood by the US, is it really what the Egyptians were dreaming about? The mental enslavement? The corruption? The retrogradation? The slow infernal descent to the European Inquisition times? Did you know that two islamic emirates were already created in Syria by those so-called freedom fighters one in Dera and the other in Homs? Is it the model, we westerners, will support? The fall of the last secular regime in the Middle East, if it is not the U.S. objective, will secure the house of Saud a total supremacy in the region to spread its conception of authoritarian freedom. I refute it.
Its dictator? Assad took power in 2000 after 29 years of his father's ruling. He is at the head of the Arab socialist Baath party. The Baaths privilege a state economy, a marginalization of the privatizations, foreign investments limited... In itself, it is a contradiction with the ideal of a dictatorship. How many dictatorships encompassed communism? Russia, China, Romania, Cuba, Angola (is the list exhaustive?). Socialism? Libya, Iraq (nonexhaustive). Liberal and neoliberal? Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Honduras, Paraguay, Saudi Arabia, Qatar... Yes, the neoliberalism wins the golden palm.
Few research will lead you to the following knowledge, dictatorships had always adopted the Chicago school neoliberal ideology that is to say a market economy, privatizations to the extreme, foreign investments empowered...
If by dictators, you imply control the internet, our epitome of democracy does it too. If you imply that dissidents are hunted, our epitome of democracy won't blush, will it? So does she!
It took us eleven years to realize that Assad's ideas did not fit ours! Our time of reaction is quite slow! Or was it because he opened his mouth condemning our invasion of Iraq? Or better, because Assad openly rejected our content of the Palestinian regional settlement? It probably hastened his fall on our list of "dictators" to eliminate. And the best for last, isn't our association with Saudi Arabia the height of hypocrisy in our ethical and moral fight in matter of dictatorship?
Its wealth? Let's not waste our time. Nothing really worth of signaling besides its oil and the discovery of natural gas reserves. And it is what's at the end of the Qatari's arrow. The exploitation of its natural gas. If Syria exploits it, it will be part of the gas oligarchic club composed of Russia, Iran and Qatar (it seems to be the only offended competitor) but there, doesn't lie the real cause of the Atlantists' grievance.
Its pipeline? Which one? 2016 is galloping and the physical threat of another competitor is unbearable to the US. What will Nabucco become? It is our pipeline. The triangled alliance Iran-Iraq-Syria signed an agreement to the building of a pipeline delivering natural gas to Europe. Where is the problem may you ask? Only that it will compete with the Russian but more likely that the US will loose its superiority as a provider in the region. By invading Iraq, it is improbable that the US did not have the data in the back of their mind and fostered the how to kill two birds with one stone strategy. It is a clean planned move in the continuity of the US policy to isolate Iran by controlling its pawns Iraq and Syria.
Iraq, Libya, Iran, Syria, the evil, the enemy is always the other in spite of our belligerent foreign policy. Same refrain, other lyrics. Our stimulus however remains invariable, its constancy venerates profit. Our motto "to keep heads rolling". I can't wait for a counterweight to absolve our arrogance in reestablishing an international equilibrium! Didn't the Non-Aligned Movement conference gathered in Tehran presage of the birth of such a force?
In the meantime Iraq is still rebelling, Libya's new army is made of international NATO's mercenaries, the Iranians are suffering from our sanctions and, Syria is still fighting the oppressors (the deaths of innocent children carry our mark).
In remembrance of true Syrian heroes embodied by Yusuf al-' Azma.
