Syrian Opposition Unity Deal
Illegitimate groups unite.

Last week, Doha hosted Washington's reinvented scheme to forge new Syrian opposition unity. Only pro-Western puppets need apply. So-called Friends of Syria are its enemies.
Most live outside the country. They haven't been there for months or years. They're out of touch. They have no connection to what most Syrians support. They're involved for whatever benefits them at the expense of the majority of the population that opposes their agenda.
Many opposition figures boycotted the meeting. They want no part of Washington's scheme. Movement for a Peaceful Settlement in Syria leader, Fateh al-Jamus, told Voice of Russia (VOR):
"We are holding back our opinion of the external opposition. Any action taken by an organization outside the borders of our country can not make a difference."
"This activity leads to a dependence on foreign players from a geopolitical and a financial point of view. The work of a true opposition must be implemented from within the country."
"As for external conferences, they have shown that they only contribute to strife amidst the opposition, and do not unite it. Such conferences cause a distorted view of the regime."
VOR cited Whitehall sources saying UK special forces are actively involved in training opposition death squads. Assassinating Assad is prioritized. SAS, SBS, and Special Reconnaissance Regiment elements are involved.
Expect US special forces and CIA elements to be part of this as well. Washington heads all regime change efforts.
Prime Minister David Cameron "is preparing to use the RAF to enforce no-fly zones"." Doing so effectively declares war. It initiates Libya 2.0 without Security Council authorization.
Cameron and Obama are "considering military action and officially arming rebels." Unofficially they've been doing it all along.
"The first stage of the plan involves a no-fly zone that will be patrolled by British, US and French forces. Safe havens will be set up in Syria, Turkey, and Jordan."
If VOR is right, all-out war looms. Perhaps it's Obama's way of celebrating electoral victory.
