NATO In Syria: The Lion Is Ready To Pounce

NATO-Syria: the lion is ready to jump
Oleg Severgin

The world press is bursting with headlines like “The US military is training in anticipation of intervention in Syria” and “NATO threatens war”.

Washington and Brussels state that if the regime of Bashar al-Assad uses chemical weapons against the armed units of the opposition, it may serve as a cause of war.

However, a number of experts believe that today the use of such a weapon is technically impossible for Syria.

Nevertheless, these days, warnings from the NATO leadership and the chief Atlantic partner of the Alliance simply follow each other. According to Secretary General of NATO Anders Fogh Rasmussen, in case Damascus uses chemical weapons, an “immediate reaction of the world community” will follow. The US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton noted her country would not leave the use of such weapons “against the Syrian people” unpunished. At a press conference, the head of the White House Barack Obama spoke about inevitable “consequences” for the Assad regime if it dares to cross the so-called “red line”. And, according to President Obama, this means not only the use of the chemical weapons but also a situation in which they fall into the hands of terrorists.

At the same time, it is interesting that, according to news agencies, in the next few days US authorities decided to include the Al-Nusra Front fighting against al-Assad in the list of terrorist organizations. As it turned out, it is a division of al-Qaeda. But even without it, passions are running high. For example, the American Fox News TV channel reported in recent days with reference to sources in the presidential administration that Damascus was ready to use the poison gas sarin. As this chemical mixture only lasts two months before it is no longer effective, we should expect the use of this weapon in the near future. And according to the NBC TV Company, dozens of Syrian bombs are already loaded with sarin, and pilots are only waiting for orders.

The German Frankfurter Rundschau, with reference to American sources, writes that the Pentagon had conducted war games practicing actions in case of a military invasion in Syria. According to the same newspaper, part of the US special forces are deployed in Syria’s neighbor Jordan, and CIA agents on Syrian territory coordinate actions of the opposition’s detachments.

According to some data, the newspaper writes, the Pentagon has determined the number of the invading forces at about 75,000 servicemen; and now they are specifying plans for a ground operation. At the same time, German and Dutch anti-aircraft Patriot missile complexes are being deployed on the Turkish-Syrian border.

Deputy Chairman of the Left Party and expert on foreign policy of this party’s faction in the Bundestag, Jan van Aken (Germany), called the departure of the Patriot complexes and Bundeswehr service personnel to Turkey “sheer madness”.

In an interview with the Voice of Russia he very sharply spoke about the escalation of tensions around Syria.

“NATO’s intervention in Syria will very quickly grow into a war. This will inevitably provoke a situation like in Iraq, where civil war lasts for years. In any case, by making this decision, NATO should think about possible consequences. I believe that any military intervention in the Syrian conflict will be an utter catastrophe for Syria”.

Meanwhile, news agencies with reference to official sources reported that in the coming days, the United States intends to recognize the National Coalition of the Syrian opposition as the legitimate representative of the people. It has already been officially recognized by all 27 countries of the “Big Europe”. What’s next?

    I follow these news reports coming out on the North Atlantic News Wire with the same trepidation that ‘thinking’ people felt during the destablisation of the Balkans in the run up to the manufactured war on Germany. Syria is not another Iraq, it is far worse and IMHO will draw Iran into deeper operations against the West that they will regret.

    No worries if it is little friend Israel using our WMD with its QME to kill lots of Palestinians in Gaza.

    These “war games” and wars of words are getting more and more extreme and dangerous. What right have “27 European countries” to decide on the destruction of another Muslim land, after all the harm done last year, and in Iraq where the disaster goes on.

    Fox/ NBC, and all. So the western media is being saturated with this sarin gas claim. I was also startled yesterday to see this has reached Chicago’s local media on the way to the weather report. The media is willing to carry WMD claims before they are proven true, so these are viewed with skepticism. Spooky the way these networks sing that song at the same time…

    What we do know for sure from numerous previous NATO “operations” is that the psy-war and lying goes with other things, like false flags, and always softening up of populace acceptance of yet another war of aggression. When the carpet bombing is complete, the LIES told to justify these interventions are only revisited by the few who are paying attention, (the globalization think tank or those with ties to the target countries…and noticeably more veterans) and the ACTUAL REASONS and names of powerful calling for the subversion reach few in the same populace. The apathy is staggering.

    Whether something “happens” with the sarin gas, or to the USS Eisenhower, or the “defensive” patriot missiles find a reason to hit targets …no prophet here but know none of the militarism is or ever will be any good and it does seem as though Syria is being “set up.”

    If the purpose of a psy war is to keep the populace from protesting, it is already working. The united states of NATO populace is already quiet as church mice about their government’s alignment, arming, funding, training, directing (see CIA above) of the free?SyrianArmy, and now the recognition of National Coalition Syrian Opposition… This does not look likely to change with an escalation. The collective we will believe whatever they tell us, until there is a massive movement of awareness where the PEOPLE are not afraid to draw their OWN red lines.
