How Britain and France are promoting “revolution” in Syria

35
After the Brussels EU summit, held at the end of last week, the Syrian topic was raised in the media with all the urgency. The main topic was the question of the future armament of the so-called Syrian "opposition", which, according to some British information, London intends to spend for the beginning of 20 million pounds - and no economic crisis is not a hindrance to it. Current EU embargo on supplies weapons France is going to break the Syrian rebels. Paris and London are in such a hurry to supply the gallant jihadist army in Syria with missiles, machine guns and assault rifles that they do not even have the patience to wait until the end of the EU embargo, which expires in May.

According to the newspaper Daily Star Sunday, which quoted an anonymous source from the government, the UK began withdrawing its special forces units from Afghanistan in order to prepare the fighters for the assignment in Syria. According to the named newspaper, the command of special forces is developing secret plans to supply the militants of the Syrian "opposition" with weapons. The actions of the trained warriors will be led by people from MI-6, as well as the French General Directorate of External Security. The rebels, who are now waiting for their finest hour in the countries bordering Syria, will be given a weapon worth twenty million pounds sterling. We are talking about machine guns, machine guns, grenades, anti-tank missiles, missiles and various ammunition. Weapons enough for thousands of militants.

French journalist Jean-Jacques Mevel confirms information that Paris and London decided to supply weapons to the Syrian rebels. Britain and France intend to break the arms embargo against the Syrian rebels, even if the European Union objects to the lifting of the ban, he writes. President Hollande, according to the journalist, not only imposed a discussion of the Syrian issue at a European summit, but also demanded that the Europeans lift the embargo on the supply of weapons to Syrian fighters for democracy, adding to the demand a statement that “if necessary, France will go around the embargo ". He stated with pathos:

“We cannot allow the regime, which has shown that it is refusing any political discussions, to kill its own people.”


As for Britain, a week ago, Prime Minister Mr. Cameron announced that he would act as he deemed correct, that is, he would supply weapons to the Syrian rebels. Despite the European agreement. Two statesmen, reminds a French journalist, met face to face before a closed European meeting of twenty-seven participants.

Thus, aggressive-minded individuals living on both sides of the English Channel, publicly expressed a desire to move on to actions. It is known that the rebels are supposed to deliver ground-to-air missiles, anti-tank weapons and projectiles for artillery installations - just to those that the rebels managed to repel from the enemy.

Laurent Fabius, the French foreign minister, hopes to receive a positive response from the EU in the very coming weeks - most likely this will happen at the end of March at the meeting of EU foreign ministers scheduled in Dublin. Jean-Jacques Mevel sees here the coming “moment of truth.”

It should be noted that these unpleasant geopolitical events - or rather, what is about to become events - were predicted long ago. This is not the first time that Monsieur Hollande threatens Syria. This man has little “new Afghanistan” that he received in Mali — obviously, with new democratic inclinations he wants to raise his sluggish rating — a record low. Over the past thirty years, since 1981, the people of France have not had a less popular president. Here is the truth, not a single gram of propaganda: sociologists in Paris found out that F. Hollande does not trust the overwhelming majority of the French people. Organization "TNS Sofres" surveyed About 1 thousands of voters, of which only 30% expressed confidence in the president. Even less is believed to be the prime minister of the country, Jean-Marc Eyro, 28%.

In the direction of Syria look and person from Israel. According to the British newspaper The Guardian, Israel going to ask US President Barack Obama to launch an invasion of Syria. True, Tel Aviv’s request for American support will come only if irrefutable evidence is found that Syrian missiles from army arsenals in any way began to fall into the hands of Hezbollah militants. Tel Aviv is ready for a negative response, which with all Jewish cunning is immediately transformed into a positive one: in the case of “no” Obama, the Israeli government will ask it to ensure that the United States fully supports the “IDF military operation in Syria and Lebanon to stop the replenishment of rocket Hezbollah stocks. Thus, Israel seems to be making an offer to America that it cannot refuse. A negative answer, that is, a refusal to help in the full sense of the word, is simply not provided.

Syrian "rebels" also said their word. They didn’t turn to the EU or personally to Cameron and Hollande, who already adore them and cherish, but to Russia, whose views on the future of Syria differ significantly from Western projects. The website of the plenipotentiary presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District 17 in March posted a message in English and Arabic from the Syrian Revolution Electronic Suite (Syrian Revolutionary Electronic Suite), addressed to no less than all Russian people.

Hackers, they, apparently, the authors of the text, called upon Russians "stop the government from providing the Syrian regime with heavy weapons." “We apologize to all the good Russian people for hacking this site. Asad is killing our children and destroying our cities, ”these people said on the main page of the hacked site.

Received fresh news and from the bastion of world democracy - the United States of America. Television channel (French, by the way) "France 24" сообщилthat US intelligence agencies are preparing a military campaign to destroy the most radical militant groups that are fighting in Syria against the government army. According to this information, the CIA is already tracking the movements of "terrorist groups". The data is planned to be used in the organization of the operation to destroy the militants, including using the UAV.

Mr. Obama has not yet given instructions on how to conduct such operations, but a group of initiative employees of the counterterrorism unit of the CIA responsible for the use of UAVs, was recently removed from the Afghan-Pakistan direction and began collecting data in Syria.

Here - do not go to the fortuneteller - there is clearly a British trace: after all, London is withdrawing its special forces units from Afghanistan to solve the Syrian tasks.

And why should the Americans start fighting terrorists who are now performing tasks harmoniously combined with the intentions of the main democratizers of the planet? Then their time will come, and now the Alkadians and their ilk, including some of the same French defending the ideals of M. Mera in Syria, act together against the enemy of Washington, called the destroyer of their own people, the bloodthirsty and irrepressible tyrant Bashar al-Assad. To fight against them with the help of the CIA - the very one that Al-Qaida in the eighties gave birth to - the White House will not. The CIA’s counterterrorism unit would be more responsible for directing the armed activities of the militants, rather than fighting terrorists.

All these statements are executed in the same way that US Secretary of State Mr. John Kerry drew in the Middle Eastern noting. Being at the end of February in Rome and participating in the meeting of the “Friends of Syria”, he spoke with the leaders of the Syrian “opposition” and kindly сообщил they, that the US will provide them with additional assistance in the amount of sixty million dollars, and at the same time for the first time will provide some non-lethal means, that is, communications equipment and medical supplies. According to the Secretary of State, 60 million will allow the opposition to provide "various services" to the population of the areas it controls, and thereby strengthen the support of local residents. It makes no sense to decipher the list of "services" that bearded opposition militants can provide to the population. It is absolutely clear that the American money will help the “Free Syrian Army” to successfully reduce the number of those who support the wrong people. It is a deadly way. (By the way, Europe immediately responded to the then State Department’s initiative. The EU Council allowed supplies to the militants of the opposition "non-lethal military equipment": binoculars, night vision devices, communications equipment, uniforms.)

Having finished an impressive speech about democratic support and millions, Mr. Kerry hinted to the fighters for a happy Syrian future about who they would fight shoulder to shoulder with. Speaking to reporters after a meeting of the Friends of Syria, he loudly expressed the fear that the supplied equipment could well fall into the hands of radical groups. And now: for the press, one goal is being served by the CIA, but in reality another will be destroyed. This is the experience of the CIA and the Pentagon in Afghanistan, where the villages are destroyed instead of the “Taliban base”? This invaluable experience for the workers is very useful in Syria. They wanted to destroy the local cell of al-Qaeda, and rocket them up against civilians in Damascus or Aleppo. No apologies. The map is outdated, or the gunner in Washington was with a hangover that day (as a punishment he was deprived of a quarterly bonus).

Overlaid on all sides by Bashar Asad nothing left, how to ask for help from the BRICS countries.

The President of Syria called on the BRICS countries to intervene in the situation in Syria to end the conflict in the country. In an interview for France-Press, Assad’s political adviser Butine Shaaban reportedthat B. Assad sent a letter to South African President Jacob Zuma before the BRICS summit, scheduled for March 26. "In this message, Bashar Asad asks for the intervention of the BRICS countries to facilitate the open dialogue that he intends to begin," said France-Press quoting the words of Shaaban.

What is it? West decided to finally deal with Assad? Or is there still hope that the decisions of Paris and London will not pass into life?

Columnist "Kommersant" Anatoly Maksimov points out that in France, as well as in Great Britain, the direct formulation of the question of supporting the opposition with arms did not meet with unanimous support. In Paris, Hollande’s initiative was rejected by many politicians from the rightist Union for a Popular Movement, centrist Francois Bayrou and the National Front.

“Opponents of the armament of the Syrian opposition put forward three main arguments. First, having received Western armaments, the opponents of Bashar al-Assad will finally abandon the idea of ​​negotiations and a peaceful settlement. The outcome of the confrontation will be decided solely on the battlefield, which will only increase the number of victims. Secondly, there are no guarantees that, in the course of time, the weapons provided to the opposition will not be in the hands of radical Islamist groups and will not be used in other hot spots. Thirdly, the supply of European weapons to oppositionists may provoke an “adequate response” from the states supporting Iranian, Russian and Chinese supporting Bashar al-Assad. As a result, the arms race in the region will reach a new level, and the resolution of the conflict will not come at all ”.


But the French and British leaders are fanning into one tune and blowing one motive: the world, they say, cannot watch impartially as the Syrians kill each other, it is necessary to change the balance of forces in favor of the opposition, thereby bringing Assad's fall closer, and so on.

If you read between the lines, it will be clear: the killing of Syrians by Syrians is unacceptable, but the killing of Syrians by alien "oppositionists" and those gangsters who took their side in Syria is democratic and correct.

Such arguments on relatively healthy people, even though they are Westerners, cannot act. Against a couple of accomplices - Hollande and Cameron - were made by Germany, Holland, Austria and several other countries in Northern and Central Europe. The next round of talks is expected on March 22-23 in Dublin.

Thus, it is too early for Paris and London to celebrate the victory. Most likely, in the European Union it will reach to May 31 - the date of the expiry of the embargo on the supply of arms to the opposing sides in Syria. It can be assumed that Hollande and Cameron, as well as Obama, are not in a hurry at all, wanting to break the euro-embargo and create some kind of international precedent. France, Britain and the United States in advance prepare the world community for what will follow in early June. One cannot allow, in fact, that the Syrians kill the Syrians ...

As for Russia (as well as the aforementioned China and Iran), after the embargo expires, it can also offer something to some people - namely, the supply of both non-lethal equipment and deadly weapons to Comrade Asad. Considering this opportunity and expanding it to the maximum, Bashar Asad addresses the BRICS countries for help.

    Regardless of whether Assad wins or not, Christians, Shiites, Alawites of the Middle East are doomed to destruction. Assad and rebels are just a facade. Nobody is ally to each other in the brix. Russia must save at least the base in Tartus. As I wrote, nothing did not stop the rebels from deploying beacons in key areas of Syria. The planned drone strikes confirm this. True, but first they will have to deal with air defense somehow, I think this role was assigned to Israel. Judging by the categorical statements of their diplomats, the issue has long been resolved.

    let's imagine such a scenario - China or Russia (or together), despite all sorts of cries of eurofascists and intimidation by different sanctions and embargoes, introduces a contingent of 300-400 thousand soldiers during the week to help Assad. A mass attack occurs on three four fronts from different sides . there is a walking march throw and some light armored vehicles and field kitchens.

    2 year, the war in Syria continues. According to human rights organizations in the country, during this time, 70 thousand people have died in Syria, of which 50 thousand are civilians. The UN notes that 1 million Syrian citizens left the country and became refugees. During 24 months of the war, Syria suffered losses of 80 billions of dollars. It is noted that the army of President Bashar al-Assad is fully operational, despite the 12% number of deserters. The war in Syria is far from over, according to the opinion of UN 10 ITV experts.

    Hmm, Syria to put it mildly, you will not envy.

    In principle, I agree, but I would like to emphasize that the United States itself will not go to any part in the Syrian conflict. They are withdrawing troops from Afghanistan in order to use them in the USA itself, where riots are expected after the budget sequester.
    No, they will do the dirty work with the hands of the French and the British. It was not for nothing that they crushed Sroskan with black PR and cleared the path to the spineless Hollande. As for the British, everything is clear - everything that the Americans are squeamish about doing and talking, the British are doing and saying for them. For example, they provide political asylum to gentlemen such as Borodin.
