Friends of Syria Declare War on Assad

Replacing Assad with a US client state is planned

by Stephen Lendman

On April 1 in Istanbul, Washington-led rogue leaders discussed ways to destabilize and topple Assad.

They recognized the violent Syrian National Council (SNC) as the "sole representative of the Syrian people." Doing so assures continued conflict, not peaceful resolution. Killer gangs were promised generous funding. They've already gotten plenty, as well as weapons, munitions, and training. Now they'll get more.

Washington and rogue NATO partners plan conflict, not peace. They want Assad replaced by someone they control. Violence rages to achieve it. Expect lots more followed by war if current efforts fail.

In Istanbul, pretense dissolved. So did Annan's sham peace plan. Couched in diplomatic language, it was more theater than resolve to end conflict peacefully.

While calling for both sides to stop violence, it demanded Assad act first. Doing so ignored his responsibility to protect his people against Western-backed insurgents. Yet he's blamed for doing his job.

On April 1, The New York Times headlined, "US Joins Effort to Equip and Pay Rebels in Syria," saying:

Doing so reflects consensus that "more forceful action" is needed to halt violence. SNC leader Burhan Ghalioun called for "a stronger Free Syrian Army. All of these responsibilities should be borne by the international community."

Hillary Clinton said Washington is "discussing with our international partners how best to expand this support."

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants insurgents better armed "to defend themselves." He barely stopped short of declaring war, adding:

If Assad doesn't "cooperate," the Security Council must "fulfill its responsibility and put an end to the massacre in Syria." 

Doing so today's possible if Washington calls off its dogs. Erdogan and other rogue participants didn't explain or their intention to oust Assad violently.

A concluding statement called for "determin(ing) a timeline." It virtually declared war. "Working group" strategy plans how.
