Obama Plans Regime Change in Syria


Insurgent violence won't stop. War may follow.

by Stephen Lendman

International law prohibits interfering in the internal affairs of other states. For Washington, it's official policy. Post-9/11, multiples countries were targeted, including Iran and Syria.

Regime change plans remain on track by any means, including war. If other methods fail against either or both countries, expect it. 

Actions against Iran so far stop short of generating violence. It's coming once Syria's resolved. The road to Tehran runs through Damascus. Since last March, Washington-orchestrated Western-led insurgency wracked the country. 

Libya's model was replicated. So far it's short of bombs away. Expect it if current measures fail. So far, Assad's prevailed. He wants peaceful resolution, not conflict. Insurgents reject it. They're resolved to fight and are well armed, trained and funded to do it.

Late Friday, Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad al-Makdissi expressed optimism saying:

"The battle to topple the state is over. Our goal now is to ensure stability and create a perspective for reform and development in Syria while preventing others from sabotaging the path of reform."

"When security can be maintained for civilians, the army will leave. This is a Syrian matter."

While calling for a ceasefire on both sides, Annan's six-point peace plan states:

"The Syrian government should immediately cease troop movements towards, end the use of heavy weapons in population centers, and begin pullback of military concentrations in and around population centers."

"As these actions are being taken on the ground, the Syrian government should work with the envoy to bring about a sustained cessation of armed violence in all its forms by all parties with an effective United Nations supervision mechanism."

Annan's spokesman Ahmad Fawzi said "(w)e expect (Assad) to implement this plan immediately. The deadline is now. (He) must stop first and then discuss a cessation of hostilities with the other side and with the mediator."
