Kofi Annans fredsplan har ju godkänts av Syriens regering såväl som av Ryssland och Kina och de andra BRICS-länderna. Men Michel Chossudovsky vill varna för att väst har illasinnade planer – Foreign Troops Inside Syria: The Failed UN Brokered ”Peace Plan” Sets the Stage for War?

The Kofi Annan ”Peace Plan”
The arrest of the French military officers (circa 22nd of February) –which coincided with the beginning of Kofi Annan’s peacemaking mandate (February 28th)– was hushed up by the Al Assad government, largely with a view to avoiding undue controversy within the sphere of United Nations diplomacy.
Yet the decision by the Al Assad government to avoid raising the issue of Western military support to ”opposition” forces has provided Washington and its allies with the upper hand. While claiming to represent the ”international community”, the Atlantic Alliance is not only behind the armed insurrection, it is providing support and training to Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist brigades.
With Western forces and military advisers inside Syria, the so-called peace plan brokered by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has all the appearances of a staged event.
Peace Plan with Whom? A ”Cease Fire” cannot be implemented without clearly identifying the identity of the parties involved. A real peace plan would require addressing the illegal presence of foreign military personnel on Syrian soil.
The Kofi Annan peace plan called for a cease-fire on ”both sides”, while failing to acknowledge that foreign forces from NATO countries are directly involved in the conflict, on the ”side” of the ”opposition”.
Not surprisingly, immediately upon the adoption of the UN Arab League brokered Peace Plan, the ”opposition” forces including the terrorist brigades, under the guidance of their foreign military handlers, decided to ignore the peace plan: renewed attacks by opposition gunmen directed against Syrian forces and civilians were reported in several cities immediately following the adoption of the peace plan. Meanwhile, the Al Assad government was urged to ”halt the killings” and Damascus was casually blamed for ”breaking the ceasefire”.
This ”scenario” had been carefully planned in advance of the adoption of the six points Peace Plan.
The Kofi Annan Peace Plan, which was endorsed by Syria, China and Russia was slated to fail from the outset. It was also intended to be used as a propaganda ploy against the Al Assad government. Immediately following the endorsement of the Annan Peace Plan, a new wave of baseless accusations was directed against the Al Assad government, accusing ”Syrian forces [of] deliberately attacking children in horrendous tactics ordered directly by President Bashar al-Assad, the UN human rights chief has claimed.”
The Western Military alliance is not committed to peace.

What is the role of Kofi Annan. Is it an agenda for peace? Or is a Peacemaking Psyop which is intended to set the stage for and R2P NATO ”humanitarian intervention”.

Christof Lehmann går bl.a. igenom de 6 punkterna i Annans plan – NATO´s lost battle in Homs, UN´s Six Point Plan and the continuation of the Subversion

After the Syrian Army successfully has reestablished control over Homs, President Bashar Al-Assad visited the Baba Amr area of the city where battles between insurgents and Syrian forces have raged for months on end. Assad is positioned as tyrannical leader who is inspecting his spoils of a war on his own people. A pro Assad demonstration is naturally, how else could it be, described as “well orchestrated” with people shouting “God, Syria, Bashar”.
A nsnbc telephone interview with a resident of Homs, yesterday revealed an entirely different picture. People in Homs have been terrorized by NATO´s, Saudi Arabia`s, Qatar`s, and Libya`s rag tag rebels for months. People dared not speak over their breath in support of the government, plunders, robberies, systematic rapes of Baath Party members families were endemic and prevalent. Yes Assad has won, the Homs resident said, he has won a victory for the people of Syria, for the ideal of Arab independence from NATO and Zionism, and a victory for the self determination of the Syrian People. Yes, Assad promised that Baba Amr and Homs will be repaired, rebuild, and he promised that the city will look better than before the fighting erupted, and the people will support him in the effort.

Lehmann nämner under punkt 2 att:

On the other hand, however, it is most likely that the monitors will be abused to document “incidences” that could be the necessary pretext for renewed demands for military aggression against Syria.

det finns risk för att övervakare av läget i Syrien kommer att missbruka tillfället för att kunna skapa nya tillfällen för att kräva militärt ingripande från utlandet. Denna misstanke stärks av uppgifter från Russia Today:

The UK has announced it will allocate some £500,000 ($795,000) to supply non-military aid to the Syrian opposition. The Foreign Secretary says it will help the ‘hard-pressed’ opposition groups to register violations by the Assad government. RT’s Laura Smith says exactly what type of support and equipment the opposition will receive is yet to be determined. What is already known is that the aid package is likely to include secure telephones that the British Foreign Secretary hopes will be used to document the regime’s violence.

En följd av mediernas enormt ensidiga propaganda om Libyen och Syrien, full av rena lögner, borde bli ett fall för förtroendet för medierna själva.
Russia Today – Mainstream media self-censorship

To Iran, to Libya, to Syria – the Western mainstream media seems to have lost the desire to critically assess information. Copy-pasting official press releases instead, and self-imposing censorship.
If you are extremely driven by a particular point of view, you tend to select facts that support your point of view. That makes you an advocate, it doesn’t make you a journalist”, said Schechter.

Sharmine Narwani (vars artiklar som avvikit från mainstreamversionen refuserats av Huffington Post ) – Dear Western Journalist…Stay Home

Dear Western journalist,
Please cease using the argument that the reason you are writing crap about Syria is because “media is not allowed there.” The Arab League report lists 147 media outlets – Arab and foreign – working in Syria in January, 2012. I and a few others who were there at the time were not even on the list.

“Media is not allowed in” you explain condescendingly. Tell us then, what explains your inability to ask the most elementary of questions when you do write your Syria stories every day, anyway, from outside? You know, questions that go something like this: “How do you know how many people died today? How do you know their names? Who verified this? Where did the explosion take place? How do you know who was responsible for the explosion?

RT talks to journalist and author Afshin Rattansi

Syrian army takes control of border region

The Syrian Army has reportedly taken full control of the Janudiyeh area, which is located in a strategic region on the Syrian-Turkish border.
An informed source told Arabi Press website that the seizure is a critical move by Syria regarding issues between Damascus and Ankara.
The Syrian troops took control of the area in a few hours and put a heavy defeat on the Turkish security forces, according to the source.

Webster Tarpley – ‘NATO-backed death squads fuel violence in Syria’

Press TV: Syria has agreed to a peace plan by Kofi Annan but how much does it correspond to the crisis in Syria?
Tarpley: The problem with the peace plan is that it fails to recognize that the origin of the problem are these foreign death squads, NATO-backed death squads, that have been introduced into the country over the last year or more and of course they have gathered a certain amount of indigenous population, people with various grievances against the regime.

What is planned is this buffer zone, in other words, the Turkish armed forces or Gendarmerie will seize a part of northern Syria and make that into a safe haven for these death squads and that they can regroup and continue their attacks into Syria.
Look at this Istanbul conference. On the surface, it looks like a coalition of the willing as we had in the previous decade ten years ago to attack Iraq. This one looks more and more like the Munich conference of September 1938, the one with [Adolf] Hitler, [Benito] Mussolini, [Neville] Chamberlin and [Edouard] Daladier.

Clinton Pushes So-called Opposition’s Demand For ‘Regime Change Or Nothing’

No sooner had Kofi Annan, the special United Nations envoy to Syria, announced scoring “an important first step” towards implementing a peace plan in the war-torn country, the US and Western powers were scrambling to scupper the goalposts.
US secretary of state Hillary Clinton led Western efforts to undermine the peace bid by appearing to abandon recently agreed terms for a ceasefire that would have included all parties in Syria.

The report, published by Spiegel Online on Monday, discloses violent measures by the anti-government armed groups, laying bare the other side of the unrest in the Middle Eastern country.

Russia Today – Syrian govt accepts Annan’s 6-point peace plan

Gatilov: Russia Awaiting Syrian Opposition’s Acceptance of Annan’s Plan

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov on Tuesday said Moscow is waiting for the Syrian opposition to accept the plan of UN-Arab League special envoy to Syria Kofi Annan to settle the crisis.
The Russian ITAR-TASS news agency quoted Gatilov as saying on his Twitter page that the Syrian authorities have accepted Annan’s plan and that the envoy expressed cautious optimism over this, adding ”this is a step forward…now it’s the opposition’s turn.”

The Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich announced that his country is not participating in the meeting of the so-called ‘Friends of Syria’ due to be held on April 1st in the Turkish city of Istanbul, saying such activities have a politicized character and unilateral approach.
The participants in Istanbul meeting are preparing for foreign intervention and they are not seeking solution for national dialogue or a peaceful settlement to the crisis in Syria,” Lukashevich was quoted as saying by ITAR-TASS agency.

Jag noterar att den ryske ministern i citatet ovan säger att de som deltar på mötet i Turkiet, som kallas Syriens vänner men som snarare är Syriens fiender, inte är ute efter en fredlig lösning utan planerar för hur utländsk inblandning. Men samtidigt kom den här kommentaren på en facebook-grupp om Syrien:

WOW a change!! #Syria #RealSyria
Washington: Assad’s approval on Annan’s plan is an important step, and he has to start implementing it immediately.

Syria on agenda as Clinton travels to Saudi Arabia

Syria: A further Friends-of-Syria meeting – the dubious Contact Group

Toni Solo – The West’s endless war on humanity : after Libya – Syria, Iran

Elias Akleh – Hypocrisy of Humanitarian Aid to Syria

… Unfortunately Clinton was defending instead the Western/Qatari/Saudi armed foreigners, al-Qaeda, and Syrian rebels, who had been terrorizing and massacring Syrian civilians in many Syrian border cities. As for the Palestinian self-defense Clinton had this hippocratic contradictory response: “Let me also condemn in the strongest terms the rocket fire from Gaza into southern Israel, which continued over the weekend.” Clinton’s fake humanitarian sentiments towards the Palestinians were also expressed in her threats to stop the American financial aid to Egypt if it exports fuel to Gaza to operate its power station. Gaza has been in total darkness for weeks due to shortage of fuel. It seems that in Clinton’s twisted logic Palestinians have no right for self-defense and Syrian government has no right to fight terrorists.

Intervju med Sharmine Narwani på Russia Today – ‘West looking for face-saving exit from Syria’

Från facebook:

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has called on UN/LAS Special Envoy for Syria Kofi Annan to interact both with the Syrian authorities and the opposition, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Sunday.
A broad range of Syrian affairs was discussed. The minister noted that Russia supported Annan’s appointment to the position from the very start due to his experience and authority in the settlement of crises,” the ministry said.
Lavrov “stressed that all the sides must stop violence and the Syrian political process must begin,” it said.
It was noted that the UN Security Council’s approval of the proposals of the special envoy created an opportunity of progress towards peaceful settlement of internal Syrian problems. This task has special significance for stability in Syria and the whole Middle East region,” the ministry said.
The world “should render common support to the Annan mission. This implies non-interference in Syrian internal affairs and impermissibility of support to either side to the conflict,” Lavrov said.

“Human Rights” Warriors for Empire, Black Agenda Report

“NATO wants desperately to identify some sliver of Syrian soil on which to plant the ‘humanitarian’ flag of intervention.”

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch are swigging the ale with their fellow buccaneers. These “human rights” warriors, headquartered in the bellies of empires past and present, their chests shiny with medals of propagandistic service to superpower aggression in Libya, contribute “left” legitimacy to the imperial project. London-based Amnesty International held a global “day of action” to rail against Syria for “crimes against humanity” and to accuse Russia and China of using their Security Council vetoes to “betray” the Syrian people – echoing the war hysteria out of Washington, Paris, London and the royal pigsties of Riyadh and Doha. New York-based Human Rights Watch denounced Moscow and Beijing’s actions as “incendiary” – as if it were not the empire and its allies who were setting the Middle East and Africa on fire, arming and financing jihadis – including hundreds of veteran Libyan Salafists now operating in Syria.

Patrick Cockburn: The attempt to topple President Assad has failed

The year-long effort to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad and his government has failed. Two or three months ago, it seemed to come close to succeeding, as insurgents took over enclaves in cities such as Homs and Deir el-Zour. There was talk of no-fly zones and foreign military intervention.
Severe economic sanctions were slapped on Syria’s already faltering economy. Every day brought news of fresh pressure on Assad and the momentum seemed to build inexorably for a change of rule in Damascus.

It has not happened. Syria will not be like Libya. The latest international action has been an EU ban on Assad’s wife, Asma, and his mother travelling to EU countries (though, as a UK citizen, Asma can still travel to Britain). As damp squibs go, this is of the dampest. The Foreign Secretary, William Hague, claims this increases the pressure on the Syrian government but, on the contrary, it relieves it. Curtailing Asma’s shopping trips to Paris or Rome, supposing she ever intended to go there, shows the extent to which the US, EU and their allies in the Middle East are running out of options when it comes to dealing with Damascus.

Basel Mohaisen and Lizzie Phelan – Despite imperialists failure in Syria, now is not the time for complacency

The imperialists have always pursued their agenda at all costs, including assassination of their enemies and false flag operations in order to create pretexts for all out aggression against entire nations. What has prevented this in this case is clearly the steadfastness of Russia and China, who over Syria have once and for all put their foot down demonstrating that US-European unipolarity is irreversibly on its way out.

Kofi Annan for talks in Moscow and China

Kofi Annan is currently en route to Moscow, where he will meet the third President of the Russian Federation, Medvedev, and the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sergey Lavrov, to discuss with them about a solution for the conflict in Syria. Basis of the meeting is a confidential document of the expert group which was sent to the Syrian capital Damascus. This expert group returned to Geneva yesterday, after three days of intense talks with the Syrian government.
After his visit to Moscow, Russia, Kofi Annan will visit Beijing, China. Of course, for the same reasons and intentions. Also in China, Kofi Annan wants to lead discussions at the highest level of the government.
It is indeed a very positive sign of Moscow and China to support the plan of Kofi Annan for Syria, but it also runs the risk of aggravating the situation in Syria again. After many battles, the Syrian regular army was able to free the besieged cities of Homs, Idleb, Deir al-Zour and was able to repulse the armed criminals, foreign mercenaries, Iraqi jihadists and other religious fanatics in more and more known areas of Syria.
The regular Syrian army was able to ensured safety again. By the current situation and the Presidential Statement of the UN (United Nations) Security Council, these armed groups (e.g. Free Syrian Army / FSA), who want to destabilize Syria and have implemented a lot of chaos and violence in recent months, also against Syrian civilians, get the time to regroup and to receive new weapons from abroad.

En video som visar sk journalister från CNN (det verkar som att det är vanligt att dessa krigsjournalister har samarbete med sina länders säkerhetstjänster) som ser ut att vara involverade i sprängningen av en oljeledning, vilket CNN sen i sina sändningar påstår att regeringstyrkor utfört. Finns beskrivet här – New Syrian TV Footage Exposes CNN Falsification and Coordination with Terrorists in Homs

I ett brev som finns på facebook skrivet av någon som bor i Hama i Syrien till någon utomlands, redogör brevskrivaren för dödsfall som inträffat i hans stadsdel under januari och februari i år. 5 personer handlar det om, 2 är militärpersonal varav en dödats när en buss han och 60 andra färdades i besköts av terrorister, och en annan som körde en lastbil som stoppades och dödades av ett väpnat gäng. Det som är gemensamt för de dödade, däribland en 11-årig pojke som sköts när han lekte på gatan, är att andra gäng sen kommit och tagit liken från de döda och fört bort och filmat för att sen lämna på gatan.

Now the most interesting, the info about these people as soon as died appeared on AlJazeera and this channel presented them as victims of regime, and this data sky rocket appeared on different resources as a list of victims of regime.

Det låter som att de får bra betalt för varje video med dödade de kan leverera! En annan uppgift från facebook

Hama Bin Jasim of #Qatar, offered 1 Million Dollars to every terrorist group of 7 people or more, that adopt a terrorist mission in Syria.

Ett exempel till, från voltairenet.org, på liknande metoder som tycks användas i destabiliseringskampanjen mot Syrien. En religiös ledare, stor-mutfi Sheikh Ahmed Badreddine Hassoun, erbjöds 10 miljoner dollar för att ställa upp som ledare för motståndsrörelsen mot presidenten! Han avbjöd erbjudandet. Senare dödades hans 22-årige son av en väpnad grupp!
