Making Sense of Syria - by Stephen Lendman
Washington, Israel, Britain and France want regime change in Syria.
Last March, Syria's externally generated uprisings began. Despite legitimate grievances, Washington orchestrated change there like elsewhere in the region.
It's part of its imperial "New Middle East" project to control North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia to Russia's borders.
For over a decade, regime change plans targeted Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Syria, and other countries outside the region.
Libya's model is the template for future Washington aggression. Whether it's employed in Syria remains to be seen.
So far, heavily armed insurgents entered from regional countries. Anti-government demonstrations have been disruptive and violent. Trapped between warring sides, civilian casualties keep mounting.
Washington and other Western nations blame Syria. Its security forces, in fact, confronted an armed insurrection. Conflict keeps raging unresolved.
