This war would inevitably spread to Lebanon and Jordan. Israel and Turkey would be actively involved both in the air campaign and the deployment of ground forces. America's allies in the Gulf including Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which have played a key role in recruiting and training the "rebels", are also involved in the staging of this military operation. Iran and Russia are military allies of Syria. The crucial question is whether they will choose to actively side (from a military standpoint) with Syria if and when the attack is implemented.

Recent reports suggest that a cyber-warfare operation has been launched. Allied special forces are reported to have entered Syrian territory from Jordan and Turkey. British special forces are reported to be searching for Syrian air defense systems "in readiness for Allied strikes".

A potential state of panic spearheaded by media disinformation is unfolding in Israel. The IDF is reported to have called up Army reservists, which are being deployed on Israel's northern border. Israel's "missile shield system" which is integrated into the broader US-NATO air defense system has been activated. Meanwhile, thousands of Israelis are queuing up for gas masks, spurred on by fears of a Syrian reprisal to a Western attack.

Humanity is at dangerous crossroads

There are at present four distinct war theaters: Afghanistan-Pakistan, Iraq, Palestine and Libya.

An attack on Syria would lead to the integration of these separate war theaters, eventually leading towards a broader Middle East-Central Asian war.

Moreover, several other countries including Yemen, Somalia, Egypt, Mali, Niger, among others, are now strung in the midst of US sponsored "civil wars", invariably leading to economic collapse, political instability and the demise of State institutions. In these countries, US military intervention often takes the form of counter-terrorism operations against Al Qaeda affiliated rebels (who are supported by US intelligence).

Public opinion is largely unaware of the grave implications of these war plans which could potentially lead humanity into a World War III scenario.

Moreover, an extended regional war in the Middle East and Central Asia will inevitably have repercussions in other regions of the World including South East Asia and the Far East, where the US is threatening North Korea, China as well as Russia as part of its "Pivot to Asia" strategy.

The US Sponsored Insurgency

"Mass civilian casualty events" play a central role in US military doctrine. Civilian casualties are triggered with a view to drumming up public support for war on humanitarian grounds.

What we are dealing with is a diabolical staged event of civilian deaths with a view to blaming the Syrian government and triggering a regional war.

From the very outset of the insurgency in Daraa in mid-March 2011, terrorist brigades --largely integrated by mercenaries-- have been set loose inside Syria.

A pattern of media disinformation was set in motion. The deaths of civilians have consistently been blamed on the Syrian government. The mass civilian casualties and atrocities committed by so-called "revolutionaries" have been used to demonize the Syrian government of Bashar al Assad.

MI6, CIA and Mossad operatives as well as Western Special Forces had integrated rebel forces from the very outset. The high profile terrorist attacks were coordinated by highly trained military contractors and intelligence operatives:

 "As the unrest and killings escalate in the troubled Arab state, agents from MI6 and the CIA are already in Syria assessing the situation, a security official has revealed. Special forces are also talking to Syrian dissident soldiers. They want to know about weapons and communications kit rebel forces will need if the [British] Government decides to help. "MI6 and the CIA are in Syria to infiltrate and get at the truth," said the well-placed source. "We have SAS and SBS not far away who want to know what is happening and are finding out what kit dissident soldiers need.
