The US Government and mass media would like the public to believe that Syrian President Assad is a threat worth committing US forces to war. However, it is in fact the US Government that has recklessly endangered the security and safety of millions of lives. This will include the lives of not just Syrians, but Israelis, Europeans, and Americans. In what may prove to be one of the greatest foreign policy disasters, the US has not only allowed known Al Qaeda terrorists to capture and take control of one of the largest Syrian chemical weapons stockpiles, but actively aided it in doing so. Contrary to the media threats and warnings about President Assad using chemical weapons, it is in fact the US backed Al Qaeda terrorists that pose, by far, the greatest threat to US interests.
The US is directly responsible for fomenting the chaos and bloodshed in Syria by covertly backing known Al Qaeda terrorists in a bid to overthrow President Assad. This same playbook was used in Libya resulting in the disastrous proliferation of over 20,000 manportable surface-to-air missiles that have yet to be recovered and the spread of Al Qaeda to Libya. By “backing,” one should recognize this includes providing weapons, equipment, training, medical aid, facilities, money, intelligence, and advisors to known terrorists. Initially, this unconventional warfare was being carried out from across the border in Turkey and Jordan, but now is being actively waged on the ground inside Syria. As we have repeatedly warned, the conflict in Syria has always been and is still aimed at creating the conditions necessary to expand the endless wars in the Middle East to Iran. In fact, the initial targets that the “rebels” targeted in exchange for US support were Syrian air defense installations. The seizure and destruction of these air defense facilities laid the groundwork for opening an air corridor from Israel directly into Iran once the next phase of the US engineered conflict is entered.
Most worrisome is the fact that known Al Qaeda terrorists now have chemical and possibly biological weapons under their control as a direct result of US support. The threat this poses to America is massive. Those responsible for allowing this have committed the gravest of dereliction in their responsibilities and duties to protect America. This situation nearly guarantees that at least one of the belligerents in Syria will use a weapon of mass destruction and will provide the long sought pretext for US intervention and a greater war with Iran. No matter who the weapons are used against, the result will be spun to support the “necessity for military action.”
For perspective, consider if a citizen actively aided terrorists in acquiring chemical weapons. That person would not only be treated as a terrorist, but likely targeted and executed in a drone strike without due process. However, when our political leaders acting in secret for dubious special interests commit the same traitorous acts, we are told that they are heroes and their aims are in our best interests. It is time for the public to demand answers and accountability. Please write your elected individuals, press, and collectively organize to put an end to this treasonous policy.
