Syrian Death Squad Invaders Seize UN Peacekeepers

by Stephen Lendman

It's high time UN and other officials admitted who's friend or foe.

At this writing, efforts to secure their release continue. Reports suggest freeing them on Saturday likely. 

UN officials hoped to do so Friday. Unsafe conditions and darkness delayed things. So does dealing with rogue killers.

They're not rebels. They're Western-recruited hired guns. They're heavily armed, trained, funded and directed. They're proxy US assassins.

They're death squads. They're cold-blooded killers. They're imported from abroad. 

At issue is regime change. Washington wants subservient puppet leadership replacing Assad. Plans are longstanding. They're unchanged.

Insurgents reveal their true face multiple ways. They're bitting the hand that's feeding them. More on that below.

UN Blue Helmets are more paramilitaries than peacekeepers. The UN calls their mission "a way to help countries torn by conflict create conditions for sustainable peace."

They're supposed to monitor withdrawal of combatants, build confidence, enforce power-sharing agreements, provide electoral support, aid reconstruction, enforce rule of law principles, maintain order, and help facilitate economic and social development.

They fail on all counts. They do more harm than good. They're imperial enforcers. They're occupiers. They operate extrajudicially. They commit high crimes. They do so repeatedly.

They began in 1948. UNTSO monitored the first of two failed Arab-Israeli truces. Its operation remains ongoing. Peace was never achieved.

The UN plays no active role. UNTSO wastes money. It's little more than worthless window dressing. It does what it wishes. Israel has full control.

Security Council Resolution 350 (May 1974) established UNDOF: UN (Golan Heights) Disengagement Force. 

Nearly 39 years later it remains. It wastes time and money. It takes up space. It accomplishes nothing. Israel's in control.
