We are informed by the controlled media that the US and Britain are to work to strengthen what they describe as the “moderate opposition” in Syria to create a transitional bodyto replace President Bashar al-Assad.
Quite what the internal politics of Syria has to do with either country is not explained.
British puppet, David Cameron, speaking in Washington, claimed there was an “urgent window of opportunity before the worst fears are realised” in Syria. Perhaps there is, but once again – why is any of this Britain’s concern?
According to Western/Zionist propaganda the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad’s rule has cost 70,000 lives and created more than a million refugees.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an anti Assad body, in a disclosure some claim was timed to coincide with Cameron’s visit to the US, put the death toll at 80,000.
The media would have us believe that Cameron has not made a decision to arm the Syrian opposition, only that he is pushing for further flexibility in the EU’s arms embargo on Syria. However, few observers doubt that the Tories can resist the temptation to involve this country in yet another war at the covert behest of the US/Zionist lobby.
Cameron has already pledged to double what is described as non-lethal support to the Syrian opposition over the coming year, including armoured vehicles, body armour and generators. However little news is “hitting the wire” over British financial assistance – money that is, presumably, being utilised to fund the purchase of weapons by the rebels themselves.
Anyone who doubts the direction this Tory government is taking us should ponder Cameron’s own words: “I do believe that there is more we can do alongside technical advice, assistance, help, in order to shape them, in order to work with them.”
Apparently ring-fencing some £10 billion of our tax money in the sacred name of foreign aid, in these times of austerity and record borrowing, isn’t enough for “our” profligate government – we now may have to fund another military adventure in the furtherance of US/Zionist imperialism.
The bottom line is as simple as it is clear – leave the Syrians to sort out their own mess – it’s nothing to do with us!
