Washington's Imperial Brinksmanship

Washington wants regime change by any means, including war.

by Stephen Lendman

Syrian violence rages. Washington bears direct responsibility. Regime change plans are longstanding. Military intervention is planned. Expect it. It's coming.

Pretexts are easy to create. Large scale insurgent massacres blamed on Assad may trigger war. False flags always work. So does intense propaganda. More on that below.

On June 14, CNN said:

"The U.S. military has completed its own planning for how American troops would conduct a variety of operations against Syria, or to assist neighboring countries in the event action was ordered...."

"In recent weeks, the Pentagon has finalized its assessment of what types of units would be needed, how many troops, and even the cost of certain potential operations...."

Pentagon officials spoke on condition of anonymity. Joint Chiefs head General Martin Dempsey said the Pentagon expedited plans to intervene militarily if asked.

Expect Britain, France, other NATO states, and regional involvement.

"US special forces are training and advising Jordanian troops on a range of specific military tasks....to undertake if (Syrian) unrest....spills over into Jordan or poses a threat to that country...."

Replicating the Sebia/Kosovo/Iraq/Libya model looks likely. Senators John McCain (R. AR), Joe Lieberman (I. CT), Lindsey Graham (R. SC), and other congressional hawks urge direct intervention regardless of international and constitutional law.

Earlier this year, McCain said:

"NATO took military action to save Kosovo in 1999 without formal UN authorization."

"There is no reason why the Arab League, or NATO, or a leading coalition within the Friends of Syria contact group, or all of them speaking in unison, could not provide a similar international mandate for military measures to save Syria today."
