Many of you may wonder why the international media is so focused on the situation in Syria, why the Western governments spend millions or maybe billions of dollars on supporting Wahhabi extremists trying to bring down Syria’s current government and why is this fight so important for us pro-Syria activists and for the future of the whole world. I’ll try to answer these questions with the following analysis.
Violent battles are taking place from Libya to Mali as an outcome of the generally misinterpreted ‘Arab Spring’. For some, things are becoming more and more clear and they seem to realize the special role of the battle for Syria. The outcome of the Syrian crisis can determine the success or failure of global corporatism in creating an empire backed by the power of the US military and its NATO allies. It is highly important for western citizens to realize this, because once such a ‘New World Order’ is fully established, resistance of citizens worldwide can only be violent. That could only serve to provide the perfect excuse to use the powers of the police state that is being constructed all around us.
Even the ones who constantly follow the news from the mainstream media have enough hints to put some puzzles together, though the truth can be more easily found in the alternative, independent media, in the work of activists. To appreciate the real danger humanity faces, we must look at the available information with open eyes, a justified skepticism of government claims and an understanding of the realities of how the global game of risk is played today. We won’t get this perspective from the political pundits whose analyses are premised on an uncritical acceptance of the need for a “war on terror.” Anyone who understands the goals of Strategy for Rebuilding America’s Defenses (SAD), the white paper put out by Project for a New American Century in 2000, knows that the America’s war of terror is a smokescreen for the creation of what amounts to a permanent fascist New World Order. Plans for world domination were laid out in this seminal document and published one year before the attack on the World Trade Center that provided the opportunity to put the strategy into action. ‘Project for a New American Century’ was founded on the assumption that the United States had the right and duty to assure a ‘Pax Americana’ would endure for at least a century, established and maintained through American military superiority in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union. SAD (Strategy for Rebuilding America’s Defenses) devised a devious plan to destabilize any nation whose leaders dared to challenge American interests. In context, the term can only be assumed to mean the interests of international corporations whose executives have dictated the foreign policy to Washington administrations at least since the 50s, when the CIA staged the Guatemalan coup on behalf of the United Fruit Company in 1954.
The most important states identified in SAD as potential threats to United States’s domination were… Well, if you were thinking of Iraq, Libya, Syria and Iran, you were right! Exactly the states targeted by the US led mainstream media, by sanctions and even by military interventions. It may seem surprising that another country invaded by NATO coalition, Afghanistan was not on the list, given that negotiations for an American pipeline had broken down in 1998. But perhaps by 2000 the invasion was already a foregone conclusion. After all, General Wesley Clark has reported being informed of a classified memo on or about September 20, 2001 that laid out plans to take down these governments along with Sudan, Lebanon and Somalia. For those who haven’t been paying attention, oil-rich southern Sudan seceded in July of 2011, Hezbollah has recently been accused of masterminding a terror attack against Israelis in Macedon, leading to the EU considering putting them on its terrorist list, and the CIA is still busy trying to gain control in Somalia through drones, private contractors and covert means. The claim that Hezbollah was behind the Macedon attack is at best suspicious, pointing to a deliberate effort to implicate a key ally of Syria and Iran.
The timing and reasons of the CIA and MI-6 based coup in Libya may have been related to Muammar Gaddafi’s renewed threat to create a gold-backed dinar to challenge the supremacy of the petrodollar. There had been threats to take out the Libyan leader at least since Reagan was in office. In 1996, two MI-5 whistleblowers revealed that one was approached by an agent of MI-6 about illegally funneling money to foreign mercenaries to finance a takeover of power. Gaddafi’s socialist government and his efforts to promote Pan-African unity and independence were threats to NATO’s vision of an American-led New World Order. When the time came to take him out, NATO used the same means proposed in 1996. Mercenaries backed by the United States and its Gulf partners infiltrated the Benghazi region and gained the support of a few malcontents to give themselves a veneer of legitimacy. NATO then sought UN cover in the form of a no-fly zone authorization, which was used as a pretext to eliminate loyalist civilians and the Libyan military through massive air strikes, allowing the terrorist army to murder Gaddafi and take control of the country.
Many wondered why Russia and China did not veto the UN decision on the no-fly zone. After all, they stand to be the biggest losers in the winner-take-all game of global monopoly in which average citizens of the planet are merely token players. What they did was abstain. By tradition though not law, this is taken to mean that a measure passes in the Security Council. However, when NATO exceeded the mandate of the resolution and murdered an estimated 10,000 loyal Libyan civilians under the doctrine of “responsibility to protect,” both nations decided it was in their interests to not allow the same thing to happen in Syria. This is probably the main reason the Syrian government remains in power. Syria is the key line of defense against US/NATO/Gulf states/Israeli domination of the world’s oil supplies exclusive of Latin America and Russia. Its citizens increasingly realize that the survival of sovereignty in Syria may be the last hope of stopping a small band of bankers and their minions from controlling the world. From a larger perspective, the quest to achieve dominance over the rest of the planet in the interest of perpetuating a carbon fuels-based world economy threatens the survival of human civilization as we know it. As long as geopolitics is centered on the conflict over oil and natural gas, the threat of global climate change grows and becomes ever more immediate.
Try to imagine this as a domino, with Syria the first piece of it. If Syria falls and Hezbollah is named a terrorist organization by the EU, Iran and Russia will stand virtually alone against the powerful alliance of Western ‘democracies’, Israel, the Gulf monarchies, the Qatar-backed governments dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood and the terrorist groups backed by Saudi Arabia, the CIA, MI6 and Mossad. Even since 2007, United State’s foreign policy in the Middle East has been to back cooperative ‘moderate’ Sunni monarchies over ‘radical’ Shia governments and groups and their secular allies in Syria and pre-invasion Iraq. This is essential to understanding the Washington’s plan to carry out its program of regime destabilization. The Muslim Brotherhood, including Hamas, seems committed to securing its place in what they seem to assume will be a permanent fascist New World Order. If Iran is destabilized through economic sanctions or eventually attacked by NATO forces with the implicit or explicit blessing of citizens of EU nations, Russia will be essentially isolated and economically devastated by the loss of access for its oil and natural gas to European, Chinese and Indian markets. China in turn will find itself virtually alone in the fight against a worldwide western corporate empire. China is heavily dependent on oil from Iran, Myanmar and other regions that have been targeted by NATO, which is seeking to absorb SEATO (the Southeast Asian Treaty Organization). Australia and Japan are going along with the plan to establish NATO economic and military dominance over Asia. Meanwhile, drone bases are being set up in Africa, throughout Asia and in the Americas. Everything is in place to allow the international corporate terrorists who control the US government, military and intelligence agencies to take over the world militarily in areas where it cannot yet dominate economically. In the face of a dollar that is increasingly seen as endangered, the impetus to move rapidly toward a final solution to the problem of democracy is compelling.
With all this happening in front of their eyes, a clueless American public dithers over the economic consequences of having unwittingly allowed corporations to take control of their government, without recognizing that is the problem. Most of those who have not given up on politics altogether engage in endless debate over whether Democrats or Republicans have allowed this to happen when clearly both are responsible. As an example of the lunacy of the state of American politics, supporters of right wing politicians are so fearful of a “socialist” takeover that they have made gun rights a central issue in the political dialogue, joined in support by left wingers who have also concluded that violent revolution is unavoidable.
What would be left in this corporate-controlled New World Order is a China under increasing pressure by the Anglo-American Empire, an economically crippled Russia, a Middle East dominated by overseers of the slave owners of the corporatocracy, a recolonized Africa and Asia and a defenseless and demoralized world citizenry, unable to fight back effectively because any effort to resist would simply increase support for a police state by those remaining in the middle class who are fearful of a mob rule formerly known as ‘democracy’.
