Det är ju ganska sensationellt om det är som Thierry Meyssan säger, enligt honom innebar Rysslands veto i FN att USA/väst gav upp sitt stöd till de väpnade grupperna i Syrien – End of game in the Middle East – Kan det verkligen vara så??
For eleven months, the Western powers and the Gulf States have lead a campaign to destabilize Syria. Several thousand mercenaries infiltrated the country. Recruited by agencies in Saudi Arabia and Qatar within the Sunni extremist community, they came to overthrow the ”usurper Alawite” Bashar al-Assad and impose a Wahhabi-inspired dictatorship. They have at their disposal the most sophisticated military equipment, including night vision systems, communication centers, and robots for urban warfare. Supported secretly by the NATO powers, they also have access to vital military information, including satellite images of Syrian troop movements, and telephone interceptions.
This has been falsely portrayed to the Western public as a political revolution crushed in blood by a ruthless dictatorship.
However, the low intensity war that the Western press and the Gulf have hidden behind this masquerade came to an end with the double veto by Russia and China on 4 February 2012. NATO and its allies were ordered to cease fire and withdraw, at the risk of sparking a war on a regional, or even global, scale.
On 7 February, a large Russian delegation, including the highest ranking foreign intelligence officials, arrived in Damascus where it was greeted by cheering crowds, aware that Russia’s return to the international scene marked the end of their nightmare. The capital, but also Aleppo, the second largest city, were decked out in white, blue, red, and people marched behind banners written in Cyrillic. At the presidential palace, the Russian delegation joined those of other states, including Turkey, Iran and Lebanon. A series of agreements were reached to re-establish peace. Syria has returned 49 military instructors captured by the Syrian army. Turkey intervened to obtain the release of the abducted Iranian engineers and pilgrims, including those held by the French (incidentally, Lieutenant Tlass who sequestered them on behalf of the DGSE was liquidated). Turkey has ceased all support for the ”Free Syrian Army,” closed down its facilities (except the one on the NATO base at Incirlik), and turned over its commander, Colonel Riad el-Assad. Russia, which is the guarantor of the agreements, has been allowed to reactivate the former Soviet listening base on Mount Qassioum.
The next day, the US State Department informed the Syrian opposition in exile that it could no longer count on its military aid. Realizing that they have betrayed their country to no avail, the Syrian National Council members went in search of new sponsors. One of them even went so far as to write to Benjamin Netanyahu asking him to invade Syria.

Russia can support a U.N. General Assembly resolution on Syria if the document takes into account Moscow’s position, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“We will proceed from the contents of the resolution. If our position is taken into account, we will discuss measures to reach a consensus,” Lavrov said on Wednesday.
“If the logic of the resolution is one-sided and if the resolution ignores people’s killings by the Syrian opposition, the resolution will not help,” the Russian minister said.
The U.N. General Assembly will discuss the resolution on Syria on Thursday, February 16.
Syria’s authorities have no plans to conduct talks with the armed groups, Syrian ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad said on Wednesday.
“We are ready to hold talks with the systemic opposition, but as far as terrorist groups and mercenaries are concerned we apply the following principle – those, who carry weapons, should be talked with through the use of weapons,” he said.
“We cannot conduct talks with people who kill civilians, including teachers, scientists and outstanding personalities,” Haddad said. “We see such a solution to the crisis – on the one hand, we continue to carry out reforms, and on the other hand – to resist these armed groups.”
“Armed terrorists, who get financing from the outside, rage in the country; they kill civilians, undertake sabotage attacks on infrastructure and statehood,” the envoy said. “In fact, Syria counteracts terrorism.”
The diplomat noted that “most groups are formed of Al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood terrorists as well as mercenaries and criminals.”
“Among them are citizens of other countries as well as paperless persons, who are evidently not Syrians,” he said. “These groups comprise several thousand people.” Itar-Tass
