THE CAESAR ACT: THE LATEST WESTERN ATTACK ON SYRIA DIDN'T DROP FROM A PLANE
More misery from the West: increased sanctions
In 2020, it's no secret, and no longer debatable, that the misery Syria's people have faced for almost a decade-the relentless, savage, terrorism of civilians and military alike-is a product of Western, particularly American, covert and overt meddling.
Western countries use forums like the United Nations as well as government-funded media to further their goals and distort the reality about events on the ground in Syria. The West supports terrorist gangs who have slaughtered and pillaged since the war on Syria started in 2011. In fact, the West and its Gulf allies instigated the non-revolution, flooding money and weapons into Syria before the first protests even emerged.
As I wrote in 2015:
In 2002, then-Under Secretary of State John Bolton added Syria (and Libya, Cuba) to the "rogue states" of George W Bush's "Axis of Evil,""meaning Syria was on the list of countries to "bring democracy to" (aka destroy) even back then.
Anthony Cartalucci's "U.S. Planned Syrian Civilian Catastrophe Since 2007" laid out a number of pivotal statements and events regarding not only the war on Syria but also the events which would be falsely-dubbed the "Arab Spring." Points include:
- General Wesley Clark's revelation of U.S. plans to destroy the governments of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran.
- Seymour Hersh's 2007 "The Redirection" on NATO and allies' arming and training of sectarian extremists to create sectarian divide in Lebanon, Syria and beyond.
The 2009 Brookings Institution report, "Which Path to Persia?," on plans to weaken Syria and Lebanon, to later attack Iran.
Further, as reported:
- U.S. funding to the Syrian opposition began flowing under the Bush administration in 2005.
- Since its founding in October 2011, the Syrian National Council has received $20.4 million from Libya, $15 million from Qatar, $5 million from the UAE.
Britain was organizing an invasion of rebels into Syria. This operation goes way back. It was prepared, preconceived and planned"."
The Caesar Act
The recent passage of the Caesar Act is the newest level of criminality targeting Syria, even the name of the act is based on a lie. An implementation of yet further brutal sanctions against the people of Syria, it will cause immense suffering, all under the premise of targeting Syria's leadership and helping Syria's people. The flawed and hypocritical logic is one which the U.S. has applied to tens of nations who have refused to cower to its hegemony.
