The View from Istanbul


So-called "Friends of Syria" plot ways to topple the government.

by Stephen Lendman

So-called "Friends of Syria" aren't at all friendly to most Syrians. Syrian National Council/Free Syrian Army hostility is visible in daily violence they commit.

Backed by Washington, Britain, France, and other rogue NATO partners, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and perhaps other regional states supply powerful weapons and munitions to reign terror on ordinary civilians. They've also killed thousands of security forces.

At issue isn't democracy or other high-sounding values. Anti-Assad nations don't tolerate them at home. They're never exported through subversion or barrel of a gun violence. Establishing another pro-Western state's planned, as well as isolating and weakening Iran before targeting its government for regime change.

Behind the scenes, Washington's dirty hands manipulate everything. Longstanding plans called for ousting Assad by any means, including war. Nothing changed. 

In pursuit of unchallenged dominance, Syrians and others in the region die daily. That's what imperialism's all about. Body counts don't matter, only wealth and unchallenged power.
